    "Manu is by far the hardest working admin here in RSR. This angry German manages to keep everyone in check and the RSR wheels turning with ruthless efficiency that only a German can do. His dedication and the hard work he puts into this group is staggering and without it, RSR simply wouldn’t exist today."

    Favourite Track: Tricky one… I’ll stick to my home track, Hockenheim!
    Favourite RSR Memory: The parade lap of the Falcon Farewell Festival event.

    Favourite Food: Whatever is on the table ;)
    Favourite Artist: The Kooks
    Favourite Film: Remember the Titans

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: I have no hobbies. RSR is love, RSR is life :D
    How many languages do you speak? German, English, French and a little bit Spanish.
    What is your dream holiday destination? New York
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Puffpirat
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? A super evil German white shark :D

    How did you get your username? My original name was “todayismyday” which I had from an advertisement on TV. After I started playing DotA 2 competitively in a league I wanted a shorter name for whatever reason. At this time my favorite DotA 2 player was n0taiL, so I decided to transform my name to t0daY.

    But I think it does not matter really because every idiot is calling me “Manu” anyway :p

    How did you get your username? Well it started of as twisted_angelwings, then went to darkangelsi, and then a group of gamers got lazy and so ended up as darksi. The amount of different ways people say it - it gets amusing. As it is dark-si.

    “As the newest addition to the admin team, SillySausage’s dedication to RSR is unrivalled. Due to living in Australia he often gets up as early as 3:30am to join in on the racing. He has also proven invaluable in setting up and maintaining the ‘Our Members’ section of our website. He’s written every member’s blurb apart from this one, because that would be a bit weird.”



    Username: SillySausage
    Real Name: Michael Gould
    Country of Residence: Australia
    Date of Birth: 14th June 1993
    Occupation: Assistant Resuscitation Lecturer

    Favourite Car: Too many! Favourite in-game car is the Porsche 911 GT3 R.
    Favourite Track: Mount Panorama (Bathurst)
    Favourite RSR Memory: Racing side-by-side for the lead in the dark at Willow Springs with Falcon.
    Favourite RSR Admin: My PayPal accounts says I have to say t0daY. But Kman’s giggle though…

    Favourite Artist: Avenged Sevenfold
    Favourite Film: The Lord of the Rings

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Playing many other games like Counter-Strike and working on my cars because they're always broken. Also religiously following motorsport.
    How many languages do you speak? One. Australian. (Not to be confused with English)
    What is your dream holiday destination? Hiring a super car and driving across Europe.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? It would have to be Battenberg, he always seems to end up next to me on track, has similar pace and is just an all-round nice bloke. We also joined TGC at a similar time too I think.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? One of those tiny feeder fish that is scared of everything and eats the scum off whales.

    How did you get your username? I was first called Iblivian for years because my favourite game was The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and it used to be cool to mispell your username. I then wanted to start my first YouTube channel but was worried about my lisp. Back in school kids always got me to say the same sentence so they could hear my lisp: “seven silly sausages”. So I decided to be Batman and become my fear so I made my channel and username SillySausage from that day forward :p

    Favourite Car: Chevron B8
    Favourite Track: RL: Oulton Park; In-Game: Brands Hatch GP
    Favourite RSR Memory: There are a lot, but it’s got to be either the races at Cadwell Park in the BMW 2002 against the RSR legend falcon2081 or the crazy high pressure race at Oulton Park in the Group A tourers when I had to fend off cluck the whole race using every trick I know.
    Favourite RSR Admin: It’s a love/hate relationship really but it has to be t0daY. I’m blown away with the effort he continually puts into the running and organisation of the community. All the admins play their part and I’m very grateful for their commitment. (+5000 points please)

    There’s never a dull moment when RSR’s full-time class clown is in town. Known for such quotes as “Is the lobby up?” and “That’s the wrong button…”, Cluck has a undeniable skill for maintaining his DNF record and it’s clear to see he has been honing these skills for many years now.



    Username: Cluck
    Real Name: Cluck Norris
    Country of Residence: England
    Date of Birth: 2nd March 1936
    Occupation: 1939 to 1945. But we’re over that aren’t we?
    Daily Drive: About 60 miles, depends on the workload.

    Favourite Car: Ferrari F40
    Favourite Track: 1 or 2. Those are usually the best tracks on a CD.
    Favourite RSR Memory: Being stuck behind Ramiboo for lap after lap after interminable lap at Oulton Park. I was marginally quicker than him but he blocked better than The Little Dutch Boy who stuck his thumb in a dike (ooooh, I had to be careful with that spelling :eek:). It was equal parts the most frustrating and awesome race. For the vast majority of the race we were little more than 0.5s apart.
    Favourite RSR Admin: It has to be t0daY. He told me I would be banned if I didn’t pick him. If I’m allowed to pick another then it will be kman for his infectious laugh.
    Favourite Food: Chicken
    Favourite Artist: J M W Turner
    Favourite Film: 35mm

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Racing is my life. Well, apart from watching movies – I have a rather extensive DVD and bluray collection. :eek:

    What is your dream holiday destination? Scuba diving around the Galapagos Islands.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? ramiboo
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Ocean Sunfish. Mostly because they are the freakiest damn looking fish in the sea which sums up what I look like in my diving gear!

    How did you get your username? I fiddled with a chicken. I’ll leave it to you to decide whether or not I’m joking.

    "Well-loved and respected by all, Battenberg is without question one of the most down to earth and genuinely nice guys in RSR. Truly representing the spirit of the group, he always strives to have fun in a fair and inclusive environment above all else. A regular in the tightly contested mid-pack of our lobbies (and not a stranger to the podium either), he is most at home when door-to-door with at least one other driver.

    Favourite RSR Memory: It would have to be RSR's first 24 hour race - the Daytona 24 Hours in iRacing. I was chosen to start the race, it was such a privilege. I was so nervous! In my first double stint I managed to push forwards, keep it clean, and came into the pits side by side in a battle for P3.
    Despite our race falling apart after a few crashes & mechanical failures, the camaraderie & support amongst team mates made it a very special weekend for me. Looking forward to the next one!
    Favourite RSR Admin: Can I have 3? Hobbs, Kman & Pam, for their efforts in the induction sessions since RSR began. Even though I'm a green wheel, I still attend because it's such a nice environment, and they do such a good job at getting the new guys up to speed. It's also always a massive pleasure to go door to door with all of them too.
    Favourite Food: Cannelloni
    Favourite Artist: Boards of Canada
    Favourite Film: Airplane!

    Hobbies Outside of Racing: Making noises with guitars, keyboards & my computer. A little bit of photography too.
    How many languages do you speak? English, and terrible failed GCSE level German
    What is your dream holiday destination? Scandinavia, to see the Northern Lights.
    Who is your personal RSR rival? Pretty much everyone in the midfield! SillySausage, Ashnoom, & Pam more often though.
    If you were a fish, what kind of fish would you be? Mantis Shrimp. So I could see ALL the colours!

    How did you get your username? It's a type of delicious cake - What's not to like? It also sounds German, which is cool.

    How did you get your username? Name of my first WoW character, kinda a carryover from DotA back in WC3. One of the heroes was called Raigor Stonehoof the Earthshaker. Because I am very creative I added an "e" at the end to form the word "gore" at the end of the name, which my younger me thought was really cool for a Tauren Warrior. Somehow I stuck with that name.
