    Simracers Against Cancer - Benefit Race on June 2nd

    Post by Andrea Lojelo on Sat May 26, 2012 1:57 am

    Hello racefriends,

    GPChampionship and Radiator Springs Racing Team have joined forces. Together we are organising the Simracers Against Cancer benefit race. This race will be held on Saturday June 2nd. The venue is Laguna Seca and we will race the Formula Renault 2.0 with netKar PRO. Yes, just like we did in the Steen Staehr Memorial Race after he passed away back in 2009 from cancer .

    Read all about this great race here in our news announcement

    In the meanwhile, pre-qualifying has started!! Let's do what we love and do something good while doing it: race together and raise money in order to beat cancer!








    GPChampionship e Radiator Springs Racing Team hanno unito le loro forze. Insieme abbiamo organizzato una gara di beneficenza Simracers Against Cancer (Simracers contro il cancro). La gara si svolgera' sabato 2 Giugno a Laguna Seca con la Formula Renault 2.0 di netKar PRO. La stessa tipologia dello Steen Staehr Memorial Race organizzata quando Steen, che partecipava con noi in GPC, mori' di cancro nel 2009.

    Potete trovare maggiori infomazioni su questa gara nel nostro annuncio

    Nel frattempo le prequalifiche sono iniziate! Possiamo fare quello che amiamo e, allo stesso tempo, fare qualcosa di buono mentre lo facciamo: gareggiare insieme e raccogliere fondi per battere il cancro!

    And here is the full announcement published by Jaap:




    Almost 3 years ago we received the shocking news that our fellow-simracer Steen Staehr had died from cancer. He was just 50 years old. We remembered him in October 2009 with the Steen Staehr tribute: 50 laps on his favorite track Laguna Seca. It was a great experience.

    Cancer influences all of us. Almost everyone knows someone in their direct family who has cancer or has died from it. There is no way to avoid getting it. There is also no cure for it, even though researchers are working very hard to find a cure.

    Alpe d'HuZes
    Fast-forward 3 years. Jaap Wagenvoort has decided to do something to help speed up this process. In 2006 some crazy Dutch cyclists started an initiative iwith a mission: fight against cancer by doing the impossible: climb the famous Alpe d'Huez, known from the Tour de France, 6 times on one day. This was the start of the 'Alpe d'HuZes' foundation (Zes means Six in Dutch).

    In 2012, Jaap will join this challenge. On June 7th he will climb the Alpe d'Huez 6 times on one day. With this initiative he is raising money which is 100% going to cancer patients and research.

    Jaap (GPC) and Andrea Lojelo (RSR) decided to organise the Simracers Against Cancer benefit race.

    3 goals
    The purpose of this race can be expressed in three goals:

    1) Think of everyone that we've lost due to cancer (including Steen) and those who are fighting now.
    2) Raise money in order to win the fight against cancer
    3) Have fun doing what we love: race!

    We will use the 'good-old' concept. 5-day pre-qualifying session (from Saturday until Thursday evening 23:59). Raceday is Saturday June 2nd on which everyone will be able to race, in groups of 15 (PQ 1-15 in Group A, PQ 16-30 in Group B etc).

    The race will be 36 laps long (6 times 6), which means that a pitstop will be required.

    Contribution
    One of the purposes of this race is to raise money. You can donate on Simracers Against Cancer webpage which Jaap has set up: http://www.wagenvoort.net/simracingagainstcancer/index.php

    You decide for yourselves how much you want to give, there is no minimum limit. I (Jaap) would like to ask you though to please be creative & generous. Together we can make a difference. All contributions will appear on Jaap's personal action page: http://deelnemers.opgevenisgeenoptie.nl/acties/jaapw/jaap-wagenvoort/actie.aspx

    Thank you!

    Also, please make sure you have the correct Laguna Seca track. For safety, redownload it from here: http://www.radiators-champ.com/index.php?option=com_jdownloads&Itemid=5&view=view.download&catid=4&cid=25

    Unfortunately I've absolutely no money left just at the moment, but (so) I'll donate a small amount.
    I plan to take part at the F2000 event too.

    uff, that was a close prequalfying ..P15 Wink, glad to still be in group A.
    The pits at laguna are not plain, so you always get wrong values at the areo-calc. (when it shows 2.5 it is in real 2.0 and so on), so all the last laps I drove with maybe a kind of oversteering car
    (but that's not an excuse to be such 'slow').

    Today is June 2nd, Raceday for the Simracers vs. Cancer benefit race. Here is some important information on the race.

    Pre-qualifying has finished last night. Genova Fulvio has dominated the field by clocking a stunning 1m17s6, over 8 tenths of a second faster than anybody else.

    23 drivers participated in pre-qualifying, making two grids tomorrow on raceday. P1 to P15 will drive in Group B. P16 to P24 in Group B. There is no need to upload replays or telemetry for this non-championship race.

    Both groups will start at the same time. The briefing for the race starts at 21:00 CET. We decided to organise a qualifying session after all. This will be a 15-minute session. The 36-lap race follows immediately afterwards. Important: you will need to manually press the 'Go to grid' button in order to put your car on the start grid.

    We will announce the place of the briefing tomorrow. Please try to be there at 20:50 CET/server time.

    Finally: we already raised €492,- together for the fight against cancer. We can be proud. Let's enjoy racing and life tomorrow!

    its a good job this was for charity because thats the first ever race ive had a DNF!

    absolutely astonishing start by Luca - probably the best launch ive ever seen in nkp. he went from p3 to p1 in an instant. i managed to pass gek into t1 and we battled hard and fair for 2/3 laps. he managed to take me just before the corkscrew on lap3(?), then lost it over the crest. i went straight into the back of him and had massive damage.

    i decided to drive on, putting in 1.18s which seemed to be consistent enough. i made 1 or 2 driver errors and span in the final sector. for some stupid reason i rejoined the track into the path of marco. ive sent him a PM apologising about that.

    all in all, worst race ive ever had. however its for a great cause so i dont mind my result. congratulations to everyone included and big up to Jaap Smile
