    gio_vtec is the sole driver representing Mexico within our RSR ranks and is also one of the most enthusiastic and involved of our members.

    Favourite RSR Memory: That one night after a race with Kman, t0daY and a few others where we stayed in TS for about an hour or two speaking about all random nonsense (how many words were there for a wiener in German again? :D).
    Favourite RSR Admin:
    All but t0daY. But on a serious note, they all have something which makes each of them my favourite:
    • Hobbs for teaching people how to drive and not spearhead into the walls.
    • t0daY for keeping everything together when people are running around aimlessly on TS.
    • Kman, nuff said.
    • Photonenbert, silent observer who keeps quiet and calm all the time except for when it is really needed to show his balls.

    NemethR is an old skool RSR member and hands down the most persistent driver we have. Many a time we have seen him lose a wheel mid-race and instead of quitting and retiring to the pits, his persistence shines through and he makes the long and painful trip all the way back to the pits to repair his car and make sure his finishes the race under his own steam.

    Occupation: Student
    Daily Drive: VW Golf Mk4

    Favourite Car: Not sure, maybe Aston Martin?
    Favourite Track: Bathurst
    Favourite RSR Memory: Technically a TGC memory often remembered. First time I actually noticed someone called t0daY on track was in a rainy DTM Oschersleben race when said driver tried to cut me off and I couldn’t avoid a slight contact that send him into the gravel trap but not me. :D

    Puffpirat has been a prominent alien within the RSR ranks for a long, long time now – all the way back to the TGC days! Easily one of the most consistent drivers when it comes to top five finishes, Puffpirat has demonstrated his skill time and time again across a broad range of car and track combinations and is always happy to share some of his tips and tricks to improve others. Why why why ramiboo! ;)



    Username: Puffpirat
    Real Name: Christian Steinhäußer
    Country of Residence: Germany
    Date of Birth: 9th May 1986
    Occupation: Calibration Engineer for Engine Control Units
    Daily Drive: BMW 335i

    Favourite Car: Too many great cars out there to pick just one, but from the ones I’ve driven it has to be the Porsche 991 Turbo S. Drive it to the supermarket and it’s tame and easy as a Golf, push Sport+ and it becomes a beast that eats anything south of hypercars for breakfast!
    Favourite Track: Zhuhai lol, no, Spa and Imola.
    Favourite RSR Memory: We have so many good times together, it’s hard to pick one. For the spirit, I’d take our Formula C race at Ruapuna. I was struggling hard and even though Falcon was my enemy on track he helped me out and together we refined the setup until we where both in a happy place. Just shows the spirit of our community because it made the race so much better. Also our first 24h event in iRacing. This fellowship, cheering for each other, brilliant! From a driving perspective I’d pick the multi-class event at Nürburgring GP with the LMP2, GT3 and rain. An occupied pit box threw me back and a had to fight back hard, catching Elmo and miagi only in the second to last lap. That was one of the sweetest victories :)
    Favourite RSR Admin:
    You know you are all great. :D
    • Kman just makes me happy, you are such a heart-warming nice chap!
    • Manu obviously for keeping this together and all the hard work he puts into our community.
    • But again, Falcon on a personal level. This one time I wanted to burn down iRacing and wipe it from my hard drive after being crashed out twice in a row, he encouraged me to never give up, spotted for me during the next GT3 race at Spa and eventually pushed me to the win. Good stuff!
    Favourite Food: Prawns & Korean BBQ
    Favourite Artist: Schumi – his driving is an art.
    Favourite Film: Everything Tarantino.

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Once in a while I play soccer with some colleagues or go karting. Also keeping up with motorsport of all kinds. :)
    How many languages do you speak? 2, German, English and I can order drinks in Chinese. :p
    What is your dream holiday destination? Bali
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Has to be Falcon.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? What else would suit my nickname more than a puffer fish! In China a waiter picked one out of his basin and made it eat a clam. Freaking beast!

    How did you get your username? I do smoke a lot and once hanging out in the park a friend said “du alter Puffpirat”. A German phrase for smoking paffen, puffen, there we go, new username and not surprising it wasn’t taken anywhere. :p

    One of, if not the youngest of our members, Alex has been a permanent fixture of RSR since ye olden days and has consistently been one of the quickest drivers for all of that time. Alex brings great energy and a positive vibe to RSR and is always up for a joke and ALWAYS up for some close, fair, door-to-door racing.

    Favourite Car: Senna’s 1988 McLaren MP4/4
    Favourite Track: Cadwell Park or Monaco
    Favourite RSR Memory: It’s a difficult one but probably the race we had around Cadwell with the BMW 2002 turbo for one of the first events where everyone was racing super close until the end. :D
    Favourite RSR Admin: Probably t0daY because I know he hates me so this will just wind him up more. :p
    Favourite Food: Pizza
    Favourite Artist: The guy who made the “sad Affleck” meme.
    Favourite Film: Watchmen or Deadpool

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: More racing! I race my kart in real life as often as I can, mostly in the south-west of England with my brother :D
    How many languages do you speak? I can barely speak English to be honest so 0.80.
    What is your dream holiday destination? I would love to go to Le Mans and Goodwood. I really like the look of the Silverstone 6 Hours as well.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? I don’t really have one. I like racing against everyone.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? I don’t really think I have a choice do I? Well salmon it is then…

    How did you get your username? When I first started my account I spent ages thinking of a funny name for myself then I realised no matter what my username was people were still going to laugh at my real name so I just stuck some numbers behind it and TA-DA! So yeah basically I got my username from the sad caveman who thought it would be cool if he named his family after a fish.

    “The quieter of our two South Africans, AlexOki has been a loyal member of RSR since it’s inception and perfectly represents what we are all about. Although he is a man of few words, his calm, cheerful and positive input is always a welcome addition to the many events he has attended over the lifetime of RSR.”

    Occupation: Senior IT Technician
    Daily Drive: Ford 1.3L Pickup

    Favourite Car: Audi RS5
    Favourite Track: Silverstone
    Favourite RSR Memory: Every event is a memorable event for me when everything goes well (as well as not so well). The greatest part I find is the camaraderie within our ranks and that is what makes us at RSR so unique. The friendships I have built over the last year from when I was with TGC until now has been quite a highlight in my career with Project CARS.
    Favourite RSR Admin: Tricky question.
    Favourite Food: Barbecued lamb & potfood (potjiekos). For those non-South Africans, potjiekos is one of many South African dishes. There are many variants of the dish from lamb, beef and chicken to name a few, all cooked over coals in a black cast iron pot with different vegetables. Pretty much like a stew but totally different in taste and awfully scrumptious.
    Favourite Artist: Pink Floyd
    Favourite Film: Top Gun

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Falcon 4 BMS flight simulator and being part of a pit crew at Killarney race track on race weekends.
    How many languages do you speak? 3
    What is your dream holiday destination? Seychelles
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Everyone
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Although it is not a fish, I would pick a dolphin due to their grace and intelligence.

    How did you get your username? Many years ago I answered all questions that needed to be understood with “Oki Doki”. That’s how the name originated and eventually became Oki.

    Easily one of the most genuinely nice and down to Earth guys in RSR, OBigO is a gentleman both on and off the track. One of the more recent members to join our ranks, he has been a valuable asset to our community from day one with his inclusive nature and fun-loving attitude.

    Favourite Track: Interlagos
    Favourite RSR Memory: Ramibooooooo! One of my first races in RSR I ruined Puffpirat’s race. He thought it was ramiboo and screamed out his name. After the race we spoke about it and everyone had a laugh and kept playing the recording over and over in Teamspeak. Made me feel less bad about it! Also Formula C at Zolder. I came out the pits in first, five seconds ahead of Manu with five laps to go. He attacked me really hard and I caved under the pressure on the last lap but those were the best five laps I’ve had.
    Favourite RSR Admin: Kman laughing at his own jokes cracks me up every time! Manu does a great job of keeping everyone in check, very German but with a good sense of humour.

    Seemingly coming out of nowhere, this alien from the US of A has taken RSR by storm since he escaped Area 51 and joined RSR. Immediately jumping to podium contention in almost every race he participates in, Nooonotreally has made his mark on RSR with his blistering quick pace and clean, fair racing.

    Favourite Car: Lotus Evora 400
    Favourite Track: Sakitto International
    Favourite RSR Memory: The Formula Renault 3.5 race at Monza. I hate to bring it up but I have to! Definite high point of my racing career with you guys, I almost lapped the whole field in a 60 lap race. :) Winning in style! Granted, PakCafan was mid season in the Formula 3.5 so we had many hours put into setups before we even started practising for that event.
    Favourite RSR Admin:
    This is a tough one. How come I have to pick just one of the admins?! Ok. You know it’s coming. This is where I say something great about all of you…
    • t0daY for all of his meltdown moments. :) “Do not talk while I am speaking!” “Who does that?!”
    • Hobbs because he sounds like a mad scientist… in a good way.
    • FlyingKman’s laugh. Gets me every time.
    • Falcon2081 for his great choice of final event at Monza in the 3.5. :) Thanks, not letting that one go.
    • Photonenbert. I have to say I am not sure if I have raced with him? I’m sure he is an all around good dude though!
    Favourite Food: “The Cheeseburger”
    Favourite Artist: Slightly Stoopid
    Favourite Film: The Transporter

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Surfing, ice hockey, soccer (USA), snowboarding, travelling & hiking.

    What is your dream holiday destination? Costa Rica
    Who is your personal RSR rival? t0daY
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Butis butis fish. This fish is territorial towards it’s own kind. Reminds me of my inner racer while we all race in identical cars fighting for the top spot!

    How did you get your username? “Noooooo, not really” you can say it to anyone, anytime, for whatever conversation. It is universal. :) … no not really.

    Doctor by day and DJ by night, this flying Dutch man embodies exactly what RSR is all about with his firm yet fair attitude towards racing. A quiet achiever in our midst, Nighttiger is always eager for a challenge and ways to improve his driving and it’s clear to see his hard work paying off.

    Real Name: Bas van Dort
    Country of Residence: Netherlands
    Date of Birth: 31st March 1993
    Occupation: Medical Student, DJ & Private Driver
    Daily Drive: Bicycle/Race Bicycle

    Favourite Car: Aston Martin Vanquish or Maserati GranTurismo
    Favourite Track: Albert Park, Australia or Spa Francorchamps
    Favourite RSR Memory: Wow, a difficult one. I can think of two. First the Bathurst race, it was one of the first races I managed to finish in the top 5 ever and the race was SO HARD! Walls, walls, walls and Micky Mouse brakes, my god. The pressure was real and the margin for error so small. I battled ferociously with Mr Beas I believe and managed to not crash, very intense racing. The second one must be my first ever RSR win at Sakkito Sprint with the Renault. That was some amazing close and fair racing, managed to beat some of the aliens there. VERY NICE! But in the end, all the races are good memories. I joined RSR because I wanted to get the “real” racing feeling with the same minded people. Setting up your car, preparing for a race, race bumper to bumper but fair, and have awesome battles. I found all of this at RSR and I am grateful to every single member for providing this amazing experience!
    Favourite RSR Admin: Well all admins do amazing work by putting so much time in RSR. But I do have some favourites:
    • To start, the angry German admin t0daY. I can always chat in a relaxed way with him. I just love his angry outbursts during, for example, driver briefings and I admire his dedication.
    • Next up is FlyingKman, never really spoke to him on a personal level, however his laugh…
    • Finally Hobbnob, I enjoy his no gaps, no caps talk but I really enjoy his hilarious dead serious remarks. I can still remember my first induction night and Hobbs was in charge of it. I was quite nervous and whilst exiting the pits in practice I hesitantly asked if I could ask a question and Hobbs said “No.” LOL!
    Favourite Food: A hamburger – home made with fresh meat, herbs, veggies, cheese, bacon & special homemade sauce.
    Favourite Artist: Dannic
    Favourite Film: Rush (the F1 film about Nicky Lauda and James Hunt)

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: For starters I like to play some other PC games. I have a very wide interest in that but the amount of time I can spend on them differs. I am a medical student almost in my final year so I spend a lot of time doing internships in hospitals, so racing is sometimes not possible. Furthermore, I really enjoy being a DJ at parties. I perform 1-2 times a month. It started as just a hobby for at home but now it has escalated to a small paying job. I also make music mixes for friends and share them online. I really enjoy hanging out with my friends and drinking beer together and not really doing anything or spending time with my girlfriend. Last but not least, I have my own racing bicycle and love to cycle 50-60km a week through the countryside.
    How many languages do you speak? 3 (Dutch, English & some German)
    What is your dream holiday destination? The Caribbean with white beaches, blue seas and a lot of Piña Coladas.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Difficult one, I think perhaps Logger. Yes you Logger! He joined at the same time as I did and he was faster than me most of the time but currently I am able to outperform him from time to time. I always keep my eye out for him. And one day I’ll be as fast as todaY!
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Well I think I’ll have to be a tiger shark! Those sharks are brutal, they eat everything, even plates.

    How did you get your username? That is a very long time ago, I think I adopted it when I was 13. I had to make an account for another forum and I thought that name was pretty cool. Later on I used it for all my game accounts. Doesn’t have a special meaning though, but I do find tigers very cool. And tigers in the night are even more cool.

    A long time member, Thomas Sikora has built up his reputation as an outstandingly clean and fair driver over the entire period of RSR’s existence. Coupled with his willingness to put in countless hours of practice before each race, who better to have as one of our in-house race stewards.

    Favourite RSR Admin: Impossible to answer. They build up an excellent community by investing so much time. Now we have more then ninety green members (reds not included). So from that point, everyone is a favourite. Thanks for the work!!! However, I’ll select two that are “more” favourite. FlyingKman and Photonenbert, with the easy reason they are direct opponents sometimes on the track. ;)

    The quieter of our German members, Mortimer8701 has been with RSR since the very beginning. His amazing understanding of racing rules and regulations is greatly appreciated by all our members and has earned him the position of temporary admin/race steward for the biggest event we have ever run, the 2.4 Hours of Le Mans!



    Username: Mortimer8701
    Real Name: Patrick Kulinski
    Country of Residence: Germany
    Date of Birth: 23rd October 1987
    Occupation: Testing Engineer
    Daily Drive: Ford Focus MkI 1.4L

    Favourite Car: Lotus 2-Eleven
    Favourite Track: Suzuka
    Favourite RSR Memory: Fighting with Xtreme_Dama at Imola for a good part of half an hour in the GTEs. With battered front tyres due to wear and good ol’ bumper-to-bumper action.
    Favourite RSR Admin: Hoooooooobbs
    Favourite Food: Kebap
    Favourite Artist: Al Pacino
    Favourite Film: Hot Shots! Part Deux

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Karting, squash, football, politics, card and board games.
    How many languages do you speak? Four (German, Polish, English & some French)
    What is your dream holiday destination? A sandy, sunny and warm beach with palms, no civilisation around and a gorgeous girl waiting for me with two caipirinhas.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? MelBonkers. Let’s say he’s not my personal rival, but he’s my favourite rival. ;) He’s pretty quick and therefore a good benchmark.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? A whale. I’m not too fast, I hardly ever bite, but I think I can cope with most other fish when things get serious. :)

    How did you get your username? For a social network I was looking for a username that neither had an image in particular nor is one of those lame usernames you find too often (“superhero”, “legend”, etc). I remembered “Mortimer” as it was Mickey Mouse’s original first name, so I chose this one. The “8701” comes from the first national chess rating I had, without the dash that came with it.

    Recently rejoining us after some time studying in the land down under, Seven is yet another lightning fast member from the United States of Murica – a seemingly common trait. Time and time again he has demonstrated his incredibly consistent pace, most notably as a member of one of our iRacing endurance teams.



    Username: Seven
    Real Name: Sean Hogan
    Country of Residence: Murica

    Favourite Car: Koenigsegg One
    Favourite Track: Nürburgring Nordschleife
    Favourite RSR Memory: The private oval race with the trucks at Daytona that Falcon hosted between him, Kman, Salmon and I. At the end of lap after lap of shenanigans it came down to less then a tenth of a second between Falcon and I at the finish.
    Favourite RSR Admin: Falcon. Since he is also an American he is usually one of the only people still up in the evenings, so we practised for events and raced in iRacing together a fair bit. Without his help I definitely wouldn’t be anywhere near as fast as I am today!
    Favourite Food: Pizza
    Favourite Artist: System of a Down
    Favourite Film: Saving Private Ryan

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Airsoft, snowboarding, white water rafting, downhill mountain biking and all sorts of other exciting things.

    Who is your personal RSR rival? Ashnoom. We always seem to wind up next to each other on the track and he’s always fun to race against.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? A pufferfish. It would be cool as hell to be able to swell up to a massive size and stab people.

    How did you get your username? An obscure line from Wylandriah in Skyrim.

    Another quiet achiever within our ranks, this revolutionary racer is all about clean, fair racing and having fun. Although he is not the most vocal of our members, darkjack has been a member of RSR for quite some time and is a solid performer on the track and always a friendly face to see in our race lobbies and on our forums.



    Username: darkjack
    Real Name: Daniel
    Country of Residence: Germany
    Date of Birth: 26th February 1991
    Occupation: Electronic Technician
    Daily Drive: Sadly I don’t own a car. :(

    Favourite Car: Toyota Corolla Trueno AE86
    Favourite Track: For just casually driving Nordschleife is great.
    Favourite RSR Memory: Getting 3rd place at the Bathurst endurance event. Had great practice, ok qualifying, only two aliens in the grid (who came 1st and 2nd obviously) and no big incidents. I even got to be second for like 2 laps. It was great!
    Favourite RSR Admin: Apparently the meme here is to say “t0daY”.
    Favourite Food: Korean BBQ
    Favourite Artist: Girls’ Generation
    Favourite Film: Superbad

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Video games I guess. I have unholy amounts of play time in Path of Exile along with other games. I also moderate a small esports related subreddit.
    How many languages do you speak? Fluent? Just two.
    What is your dream holiday destination? Backpacking through Japan. Maybe 2017?
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Too inconsistent to have a rival. But I guess I always try to be faster than Nemeth. :p
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? A catfish.

    How did you get your username? It’s a silly story. To make it short, one of the default names in Pokemon Red is “Jack” and the Game Boy game “Yu-Gi-Oh! Dark Duel Stories” has an opponent named “DarkNite”. I used to have “Jack” in all games and then changed it to “DarkJack” after 12-year-old-me beat that unfair fight. Been using that basically ever since now.

    Although he doesn’t race with us as much these days, Yorkie065 is a household name within RSR and holds a special place within our ranks. Not only has he recently become a Slightly Mad Studios employee, but for some time now he has operated the largest YouTube channel within RSR, now with over 15,000 subscribers! Many of our members can solely credit their discovery and introduction into the world of RSR to Yorkie065 and his quality video content, a deserving title not many can claim.



    Username: Yorkie065
    Real Name: Matt York
    Country of Residence: England
    Date of Birth: 22 August 1990
    Occupation: Games Designer at Slightly Mad Studios
    Daily Drive: 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec S

    Favourite Car: BMW Z4 GT3
    Favourite Track: Nordschleife
    Favourite RSR Memory: Working together on race setups and race preparation for the Sebring 12 Hour. The effort that everyone put in to helping each other get up to speed, improve lap times and then the strategy in the race itself was brilliant. Although we didn’t make it to the end, it was a great experience. Alternatively playing golf with friends at stupidly late times, getting drunk on a Friday night. :D
    Favourite RSR Admin: TonyR. :p For real though, FlyingKman. The laugh never stops. (sorry Manu!)
    Favourite Food: Steak!
    Favourite Artist: Martin Garrix – Could get some stick for that but he’s probably my favourite artist at the moment. Seems to be throwing out a lot of good tracks, the work that he puts into live sets is to be admired and puts on a good show with virtually no errors.
    Favourite Film: The Wolf of Wall Street (such a damn hard one to choose).

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Youtube, going to motorsport and car events, I do a fair bit of go karting (aim to go once a month) and drinking beer?
    How many languages do you speak? 1! I’m not going to count German as I forgot it all since leaving school. :p
    What is your dream holiday destination? Probably Monaco. I’ve been there once but it has everything I want. Sun, beaches (nearby), a cool city with lots to do, places to drink and go out, lots of cars, racing, boats and awesome roads around it.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Probably Falcon from the late TGC days. More recently it’s been Cluck in NCS eSports series.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? In racing terms: Killer Whale I guess. Not the biggest and best out there, but still pretty powerful when I want to be with a good strategic head!

    How did you get your username? Yorkie is my nickname IRL and 65 is my favourite number so throw the 2 together (and add a 0 as it looks crap without) and BAM! My username. :)

    "A regular in the tightly contested mid-pack, Invincible has an infectious enthusiasm for sim racing and all things RSR. Being one of the most active and involved of our members, his positive attitude is a much appreciate addition to our events and forum, especially with his frequent appearances in our 'riddle thread'.



    Username: Invincible
    Real Name: Patrick Gries
    Country of Residence: Germany
    Date of Birth: 7 October 1985
    Occupation: Management Assistant
    Daily Drive: Opel Vectra C GTS 2.0 Turbo

    Favourite Car: RL: Porsche Cayman GT4, in-game: BAC Mono (with the supersofts!)
    Favourite Track: Nordschleife
    Favourite RSR Memory: The Grand Touring Cup GT3 event at Brands Hatch. Being somewhat on par with t0daY and battling with him for the last 6 laps. It felt like this battle lasted the whole race and it was somewhat special too because usually he is out of my reach regarding pace. Also the Falcon Farewell Festival at Monza, just because it was a special race with lots of laughter and some great fights.
    Favourite RSR Admin: You can't have a real favourite. Even if Manu threatens me with minus points.
    • Manu: Nearly always angry but always there, sacrificing his free time to keep us in check and dealing with the rankings and stuff. I still wait for the day he gets so pissed that he just pulls the plug on the servers instead of skipping to qualifying after the briefing.
    • FlyingKman: His laugh is so contagious even when Manu is pissed he still laughs and defuses the situation.
    • Hobbs: His effing dry British humour. Sometimes I need a second until I get that he's joking. Or maybe I'm just too slow.
    • Pamelaaa: Long time absent unfortunately, but the one who brought me into RSR in the first place.
    Favourite Food: Minguichi (Mexican corn soup with chilli and cheese)
    Favourite Artist: Pearl Jam
    Favourite Film: Boondock Saints/In Bruges

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Cycling (mountain bike), kayaking, playing games other than Project Cars (yes, that happens too!). Further I like to cook, especially Mexican dishes. I hate cleaning up the kitchen after I left it in a mess.
    How many languages do you speak? German & English
    What is your dream holiday destination? Mexico
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Thomas Sikora - simply because we often end up on roughly the same pace.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? A Koi (cyprinus carpio). Nice to look at, but demanding to keep.

    How did you get your username? A few years ago I was into Disturbed and chose the username "Indestructible" according to the song. But someday this name was already used in every variation I thought of. Since I am really bad at remembering my usernames and passwords, I needed something the sounded alike and/or had roughly the same meaning. So I ended up with being "Invincible".
