Ok, guys, figured I'd add a little something to the Rivals action. I've been racing the Nurburgring Traffic Challenge the last few nights, slowly improving my times - until I currently sit at #113 with a CLEAN 9:36.882. I am offering up a further sweetener to this event - if anyone in the club is able to best my time, I will give you the car I've been doing it with [well, not my actual car, but an exact replica] a Ruf Rt-12 S tuned to S700 class, and liveried as below. I will customize to the winner's taste, with their number of choice in the 24-Hours of Nurburgring panel [or without the panel, as preferred] and gamertag [or whatever you'd like] on the license plate.







I will note that my current best time was done with a flying start, however I got seriously slowed by the traffic at the first few turns and the ghost I was racing which started from the line caught me, so don't let that dissuade you. I made the most headway in the big stretches and the back half.

I fully intend to crack the 9 1/2 min barrier, and hope to get close to 9 flat before I'm done, but I will set the contest at this current time. There are some pretty good drivers in this club, so I'm sure someone will be rolling off with this nice Ruf. Have at it!

Thanks! Of course, I just noticed a little glitch where the side and hood vinyls come together, that will be corrected before it's gifted....

Well, I see no one was able to better my noted time in the 'Ring Traffic Challenge - myself included [note to self: next time think twice before moving up into the "Clean" lap category....]. I had an outstanding run the other night that would have been 9:01.xx, but I happened to drift just far enough off-track on one of the sharp turns to lose clean status. Mad

So, will shift my contest to a trivia question - what is the fastest single-lap time ever recorded on the Nordschleife? And, once you see what that is, try to conceive of what that would have been like to drive.... First correct respondent will get the Ruf Rt-12 S, with their number and plate customization of choice.

For S class?

It is 7:27.37 in a Ferrari F50

Complete fastest is a 5:58.16 in a #3 Peugeot (thats crazy fast, i would never be able to get that time and a clean run.)

You are correct. Stefan Bellof ran a 6:11.13 in a Porsche 956 [precursor to the 962] in the qualifying for the 1983 1000km Nurburgring Race. He then ran the fastest ever race time the next day of 6:25.91 but did not finish the race due to a crash. Just by way of comparison, the fastest lap time recorded by the Manthey 997 GT3 RSR in the 2009 24hrs was 8:36.8.

Looks like you are the winner! Let me know what number you'd like on the panel [or if you'd prefer to have it removed] and what you'd like on the license plate.

Don't worry, given the 'Ring Rush Hour Rivals Challenge is still on-going, I will reset the threshold time to my new best of 9:32.432 CLEAN, and offer up another copy of my tuned/liveried Ruf Rt-12 S to whomever is able to best my time. Gauntlet thrown.... Wink

There is no way I will get anywhere near that time, so I give up. The AI pisses me off too bad driving in the middle of the road. Nearly impossible to pass them without going off or them moving over and inch and invalidating.

So I have a few questions, what all is considered dirty driving? Does small collisions to the other cars on the road count as a dirty lap? or is it just going off the side of the road?

It appears there are a couple things which "dirty" your lap - any contact with the AI "Traffic", getting anything more than your two outside wheels off the track, any contact with a barrier - if you've managed to do that without violating the preceding. Don't think drafting is an issue here, unlike normal racing. Basically, if you are driving the race and you end up with the warning triangle next to your time, then it's no longer a clean lap.

If you look at the leaderboard for the Ring Rush Hour race under Club, you'll see I'm at the top even though Killz or Deaths has a faster time - with the warning triangle next to it. Clean laps always rank over "dirty" laps, even when the "dirty" one is significantly faster. For example, my fastest time overall so far is actually 9:01.XX but because I got just far enough off-track on a curve, it will not post up in place of my Clean lap. Good luck!

Yeah, I hear ya. They must have scattered a few M. Rossi personalities among the AI cars, as there are some vindictive m'fers out there in the traffic. My ratio of starts to completed laps must be something like 15-18:1. I can't tell you how many times I've bailed 5-6 minutes in after one of them veered wildly into me.

Nice! You will have to let me know what you want on your car - # and plate personalization. And of course, I will now have to try and get a 9:01.XX clean and pass you. Wink
