    thedarkjack New Member Member

    Sep 17, 2016

    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.
  2. Yorkie_065

    Yorkie_065 Active Member Member

    Sep 16, 2016

    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. :)

  4. Invincible

    Invincible Senior Member Member

    Sep 16, 2016

    "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".

    How did you get your username? Long story. My friend and I joined an ARMA clan six years back. Since it was a mil-sim unit I had to use a somewhat normal nickname. After being called Kawalsky for four years it kind of grow on me.

    Sep 16, 2016

    "One of our two girl racers, InsaneBase doesn't get to join us on track as much these days but her enthusiasm for all things RSR and heavy involvement on our forum is nothing more then impressive.

    Favourite Car: There's just too many cool cars!
    Favourite Track: Circuit de la Sarthe, Sebring, Interlagos & Spa
    Favourite RSR Memory: I fear I haven't really participated in that much since I switched to iRacing and still have so much to learn. The LeMans race was crazy great. I MUST be there at the Brno race with the M1 for honour and because I bet it will be really good too. Watching the RSR crew in pCars and iRacing is what brought me (back) into sim racing so there are some stalker-ish memories I guess, where you didn't even know I was there... :p
    Favourite RSR Admin: t0daY, because he's the one that brought me here (under threat of banning me from TonyR's YouTube). ;)

    What is your dream holiday destination? Either my home (yeah, boooooooooring, I know) or the Moon.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Since I am so slow, myself. :p

    Favourite Track: The Green Hell
    Favourite RSR Memory: Well, this is more an overall than "favourite" but every time driving with RSR members is an enjoyment. I'm not that competitive kind of sim racer, so it's always nice to gather with people who enjoy racing rather than getting 1st no matter how it happened. :)
    Favourite RSR Admin: All of 'em. <3

  8. Mr Beas

    Mr Beas New Member Member

    Sep 18, 2016

    "They say actions speak louder than words and this is certainly the case for Mr Beas. Like a silent ninja assassin, Mr Beas rarely talks in our Teamspeak server, instead chooses to let his consistently blistering fast pace on track do all the talking. As one of the newest members to join our iRacing endurance team, Mr Beas' alien pace never fails to amaze and his representation of our community is greatly appreciated."

    Username: Mr Beas
    Real Name: Luke Beasor

    Favourite Car: In-game: Ariel Atom V8, real world: Aston Martin Vulcan
    Favourite Track: Nordschleife
    Favourite RSR Memory: A few to chose from in my short time here, but the one that sticks out most would be my first induction night at Ruapuna Park in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo - side by side with Manu for a good 3 or 4 laps.
    Favourite RSR Admin: Haven't been here long enough to really have a favourite, but if i had to choose one it would probably be Kman, purely based on him allowing me to pass pretty swiftly during qualifying more often than not.
    Favourite Food: A good fillet steak! (medium-rare for those who care).
    Favourite Artist: Tough one. Either Oasis or Arctic Monkeys.
    Favourite Film: Most recent would be The Martian, but all time would probably be Snatch.

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: I like to do a bit of karting when I can, also a massive Arsenal fan but don't get to watch them as much as I'd like to as the ticket prices are so extortionate. Obviously a big motorsport fan, with Blancpain one of my favourites to watch.
    How many languages do you speak? Just the one.
    What is your dream holiday destination? Somewhere along the coast of Croatia.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Don't think I've been here long enough to have a rival just yet.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Cookiecutter shark - just for the cool name.

    How did you get your username? A lot of my friends have called me Beas since my school days. I first used it as my Xbox gamertag and still using it to this day.

    Iceman07 New Member Member

    Sep 16, 2016

    "As you might guess from his name, Iceman07 shares quite a few traits with the Flying Finn whom it represents - both are incredibly quick veterans of their craft when they need to be and both men of few words. Iceman07 doesn't race with us too often but when he does he puts on an impressive display of driving talent. Just don't ask him what he was doing during Pele's presentation... :p"

    Favourite RSR Memory: I can remember a good fight at Monza with MelBonkers and Elmo back in TGC days (couldn't get past that big Mercedes SLS GT3 ;)). Or my first podium with the Ginetta Junior in thunderstorm conditions, that one was really scary.
    Favourite RSR Admin: Can I say I like them all the same? ;) No? Then it's t0daY for all his efforts to keep this special group of petrolheads together.

    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Good question, but I don't know. Maybe an amphibious car if that counts. ;)

    How did you get your username? Big Kimi Raikkonen fan, the number 07 is because of my date of birth and now perfectly suits Kimi's car number. ;)

    How many languages do you speak? 1
    What is your dream holiday destination? Don't have one.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Anyone that is in front of me really, but I do find myself with Nemeth quite often.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? A great white shark - solitary, powerful, tenacious, confident and not to be messed with lol.

    How did you get your username? Well, when I was in the RAF I used to do detachments to American air bases and they all had a Baskin Robins ice cream parlour. They used to sell ice creams in 1 or 2 scoops and I went in every day and always asked for 2 scoops. After a while they used to shout 2 scoops when I came into the shop and it kinda stuck.

    "Able to be lightning fast when he wants to, imthecrabby is a long-time RSR member, including all the way back to our first ever iRacing endurance race where his quick pace and consistent driving were greatly valued. His never-ending excitement and enthusiasm for RSR and sim racing in general is greatly appreciated and we're glad to have him in our ranks."

    Username: imthecrabby
    Real Name: Thomas Crabb
    Country of Residence: England
    Date of Birth: 1 November 1997
    Occupation: Student
    Daily Drive: Ford Fiesta

    Favourite Car: Darrian T90
    Favourite Track: Road America
    Favourite RSR Memory: Taking part in the 24 Hours of Daytona and finishing 2nd. The car was super sweet to drive, even when I was practically falling asleep at the wheel at 4am, and we had hardly any incidents. The comradery in the TS was amazing and I had a blast getting through the race, even when the 2nd car had some problems (*cough Battenberg cough*) and hope to take part in future endurance races that we have here.

    I'm going to have a second one, the 18 Hours of Sakitto, where Kman helped to get myself and Pamellaaa perfect setups and because of this we beat Kman with his own setup, finishing 3rd after double stinting tyres (which was regarded as a bad idea by all) and spinning out a couple of times, taking positions back with shredded tyres. Can't wait to work with you again Kman ;).
    Favourite RSR Admin: My favourite admin has to be Kman, I have had great times with the other admins as well but I have so many laughs and late night conversations with Kman and he never fails to make the TS lighten up, as well as having some great battles on the track.
    Favourite Food: Fajitas
    Favourite Artist: As a music student this is impossible, but if I had to listen to one band for the rest of my life it would be Muse.
    Favourite Film: So many movies that I love, but I'm going to choose Fury.

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Drumming, singing, going to rally events, gaming in general, Karate (Wahinkai), Airsoft (WW2 gear) and motorsport.
    How many languages do you speak? One, English.
    What is your dream holiday destination? My dream holiday destination is Japan, I have always wanted to go, but never had the means and there is a bit of a language barrier.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? I find myself all over the place in the field but I once had a long stand off with Hobbs.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Neon fish, because of the streak down the side.

    How did you get your username? This name was born because my family got a PS3. On PS2 myself and my Dad's name was imthedaddy, my Dad loved that line from something. On PS3 this name was taken so we changed the last bit to our name and this became imthecrabby and I've been using it ever since.

    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Trout - they never surrender even if you caught them on hook and get them on land.

    How did you get your username? My nickname is made from my real life nickname, Dama, and my surname (which in my language means something like crow). It was made for Battlefield 3 when I started to play multiplayer games. The 'Xtreme' prefix is added later because of my team, which is called Xtreme Cro Team where we play ESL ladders and tournaments.

    "MelBonkers is without a doubt THE most genuinely nice guy within RSR. Respected by all, MelBonkers never fails to thank every driver for their participation after a race, let everyone know how much fun he had (even if the race didn't go well for him) and humbly apologise for any racing incidents or misunderstandings that he was involved in - making sure to bury the hatchet before he leaves.

    Favourite RSR Memory: I can't choose just one. In general I have a LOT of crying-from-laughter moments when racing with RSR, so that's a good thing. But I really enjoyed the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 300 anniversary edition we did in November, 2016. Qualifying 3rd and finishing on the podium was really special to me.
    Favourite RSR Admin: I can't choose one. I like FlyingKman for all the laughs. I like Battenberg for the close racing (when I can keep up with him). I like ramiboo for sharing his real life racing experience. I like pamellaa for well....being just pam. I like t0day for keeping the races and the forums "in between ze lines" with German precision ;). And I think I forgot one or two admins more, but in general I take my hat off for all admins for the dedication RSR is being run with.
    Favourite Food: Oh, difficult one. I'm not your foody type of guy. Food to me is primarily a survival instinct. But if I have to choose something, it has to be a "patatje met" - translated from Dutch: fries with mayonnaise.
    Favourite Artist: Michael Jackson & Freddy Mercury
    Favourite Film: The Usual Suspects

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Well, I like gadgets and hardware. I read about the latest news on hardware everyday and I like cars of course. I love watching movies as well.
    How many languages do you speak? Dutch (of course), English, French, Moroccan & German (well......sort of). I do understand a little bit of Spanish and Italian too.
    What is your dream holiday destination? Maldives. Been there in 2014 with my wife. That holiday ruined all my future holidays. :D
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Well, I think I have a couple. FlyingKman for being a tough battle and usually having a big laugh with. ramiboo for pushing me hard when racing and giving me a chance to improve myself. And t0day of course for sometimes giving me that sparkle of hope of beating him.....and then he takes off into the distance. :)
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? I hope I'd be a shark. I absolutely love those animals. I would also like to be a killer whale, but that's not a fish. ;-)

    How did you get your username? Well, that's a long story. Back in 2001 I had just ordered my first Alfa Romeo ever, an Alfa 147. Looking for some information and other Alfa owners, I registered at the Alfaowner.com forum. A couple of months later I was a resident on the forum and together with creating a lot of off-topic posts, I also created a lot of dear friendships that I still have. Back then I used my initials MelG in a lot of my posts and the word Bonkers had to be in every post at least once. After my well known post where I learned that twat and tart were NOT different words for old ladies (but PARTS of them :)) someone called me Mel Bonkers. I changed my nick to MelBonkers and been using that since then.

    "Veteran RSR member and all-round nice guy, MikeyTT is a driver with huge potential and not a stranger to the top end of the field. Using his real-world racing experience, MikeyTT not only has expert racecraft but is also the developer of the popular vrHive app."

    Username: MikeyTT
    Real Name: Mike Cowing
    Country of Residence: UK
    Date of Birth: 2 July (last millennium)
    Occupation: Technical Architect
    Daily Drive: Jaguar F-Type

    Favourite Car: Triumph TR7V8 or Audi RS6
    Favourite Track: Oulton Park
    Favourite RSR Memory: I don't have a stand out memory yet, I've enjoyed all my races in one way or another, so I reserve the right to come back and amend this when I do. ;)
    Favourite RSR Admin: It's a tough one, as all the admins put in an enormous amount of effort into RSR, but I think it would have to be Manu if I had to decide. I recall him from the old TGC days, but he reached out to me a while back when he had some issues with vrHive. I ended up having to remote onto his PC to sort out the problem. He's always been open to suggestions and has helped me out a few times in the past with the odd issue I had. Even though he can come over as all business on race nights, he has a softer side. ;)
    Favourite Food: Our Ellen's homemade chips.
    Favourite Artist: Tara McPherson
    Favourite Film: Aliens

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Biggest hobby is actually racing, although not virtual. My other half and I prepared a Triumph TR7V8 to race a few years back. I've gone on to race it for a number of years and plan to get her back up and running again soon, after a bit of a gap. I'm also a frustrated developer and have sunk far too many hours into developing vrHive. It's a companion app for Project Cars.
    How many languages do you speak? 1
    What is your dream holiday destination? New Zealand (where we'll be in June).
    Who is your personal RSR rival? ramiboo (seemingly we have similar pace).
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? A Goldfish. Everyone likes a goldfish, they're great for background decoration, but never a "show fish". Also I think I have the same memory span, as I keep making the same racing mistakes time after time. ;)

    How did you get your username? Fairly dull story unfortunately. In my early career, the director's secretary used to call me Mikey for some reason, even though my name is Michael, which I shortened to Mike. When I was at school I was tall (over 6ft when I left at 16), and had a nickname of Too Tall. I was much taller than most of my friends and still am. Ended up at 6'4". So when I first got my Xbox and was looking for a username, MikeyTT was born, and I use that everywhere else now.

    Favourite Track: Nordschleife
    Favourite RSR Memory: First race, Wild Horses with the Ford Mustang Fastback. Being almost disqualified by Manu, because I completed sector 1 in the warm-up, all the members stood up for me, saying he never told me I was not allowed to do that. The race itself had everything in it, puncture, 100% brake wear, tyres almost gone and 3 position switches on the last lap in the last 3 corners.
    Favourite RSR Admin: Although the angry German almost disqualified me on my first race, he is my favourite Admin. Easy to talk to and willing to help out whenever needed. Thanks!
    Favourite Food: Steak (rare to medium)

    Who is your personal RSR rival? Due to my inflexible working hours, I haven't been able to pick up a rival yet. I do keep running into Kman from time to time, which has always been great battling.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Orca (killer whale)

    Favourite Car: In real life it has to be the Nissan Skyline R34, in-game the Renault Megane V6 because it's the only car I can get a good setup on.
    Favourite Track: I love going round Donny (Donington) National & Spa.
    Favourite RSR Memory: I have two favourite memories. Firstly, Twiggy, iamcrabby and I fighting for second place during one of the induction nights. It was intense but great fun, pity I spun out three laps from the end of the race.

    Secondly, racing the Renault Megane V6 at Sakkito coming from the back of the grid twice to finish 13th in race one, 12th in race two and in race three getting as high as 6th before the rain came and finishing the low end of the mid-pack. That was a great race for me and my best race to date.
    Favourite RSR Admin: What can I say about the admins. They are such a diverse bunch of people.

    Manu: The straight talking German. :) This guy IS RSR. He is the one that sets everything up and arranges everything and if it's not right he will tell you. He's also very helpful when you need help on setups.

    FlyingKman: The South African Laughing Man. What can I say? He was the one that picked me up after getting very frustrated, down-hearted and ready to give up on the game. He helped me with my race-craft and helps me be a better racer... and for his infectious laugh.
    Favourite Food: Chicken, pasta & Chinese takeaway.
    Favourite Artist: Queen
    Favourite Film: Waterboy, Bad Boys II & The Fast & Furious Series.

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Too many to mention but I mainly play other games on my PC with other members of the community.

    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Hammerhead - I'm always hammering my head against a brick wall with set-ups (aoch aoch) lol

    Favourite Track: Impossible to pick. Suzuka or Spa.
    Favourite RSR Memory: Has to be the Silverstone round, season one of the International Cup. Qualified 5th and managed to finish 3rd, taking my first podium in RSR. Pushed hard by Pete at the start who kept piling the pressure on throughout until the pitstop, I stayed out longer than most over driving the tyres to keep heat in them for as long as possible. When I did come out of the pits I had reduced the gap to the leaders to 6 seconds and managed to close up further where I was able to witness one of the closest races in the final laps between Just G and Battenberg. Still wish I was recording because it was lesson in racing I won't forget anytime soon!
    Favourite RSR Admin: Had some good battles with a few of them now and able to talk with most. I genuinely couldn't pick one above the rest. They are all great characters in the grand scheme of things.

    How did you get your username? When I first started gaming online it was the military acronym FuBaR (I'm a military brat), but people at the time struggled with the pronunciation and shortened it to FuBi. This was waaay back in 2008. When I made the switch I mis-spelled it and added the extra "i" by mistake but it's been stuck ever since. Great thing is the acronym still works... just :p
