WELCOME TO RCI

Racing Club International (RCI) is an Assetto Corsa Competizione focused, sim racing community

managed by members from Europe, Africa & North America that aim to provide high-quality

racing, stewarding & broadcasting to all our events.

RCI was formed after the disbandment of a previously well-established sim racing community

known as Redline Motorsport (RLM). RLM was disbanded by the owner on short notice, leaving

both its staff & community members lost. Fortunately, the remaining staff that wished to carry on

the work they had been doing, banded together to create a new community that would aim to

bring together lost members of the community & forge a new path for the staff & drivers.

RCI is now fully dedicated to making this the best Assetto Corsa Competizione community in the

world with expansion into other major titles like RaceRoom, rFactor2 & even iRacing on the

horizon. If any of the above has piqued your interest in RCI, then be sure to join our Discord where

you can keep up to date with all the amazing racing going on around the community & if you feel

like becoming a part of RCI feel free to reach out to the respective staff members on Discord to

find out how you can get involved behind the scenes.

However, we must acknowledge that the creation of RCI as a community would not have been

possible without the support from RaceDepartment. After the collapse of Redline Motorsport,

RaceDepartment reached out to form a technical partnership with the remaining staff members &

help create this new community now known as RCI.

Finally, all the staff here at RCI want to say thank you for joining our community, watching our

events or supporting us in any other way possible. RCI was born because of the staff members

loyalty to a community we had helped establish & grow, we wanted to continue, and through your

incredible support, we were able to do so.

Thank you very much for believing in us, now, we race on!

The RCI Endurance World Tour 2021, is RCI’s first attempt at a 6-month long Championship with

Endurance Rounds taking place each month. The World Tour will feature a combination of exciting

circuits that are already well established within ACC but will also feature an Endurance Round at

the Donington Park circuit which is due to launch with the British GT DLC later this year.

The World Tour will run 3 Splits across the course of its season, each Split has 40 Teams, with each

Team being comprised of 3-4 Drivers for the whole season. This means that between 360-480

Drivers will be racing for the honour or RCI World Tour Champion within their respective Split.

As stated prior, the World Tour features 6 rounds, each one at a different circuit with only 2 race

lengths being repeated throughout the season. The Championship will start at the home of British

Motorsport with the 3-Hours of Silverstone, this legendary circuit, famous for the hundreds of

races it has hosted since 1948, is the perfect place to start this incredible Championship.

But whilst Silverstone may be the most famous circuit on the calendar, its race is nowhere near the

most prestigious within the World Tour. That accolade belongs to Round 2 of the Championship,

the 24-Hours of Kyalami. Whilst Kyalami is more recently known for its 9-Hour race in GTWC, it

has become a fan favourite race for many ACC drivers, proven by the success it saw in the vote to

determine which circuit would host the 24-Hour for this Championship. Kyalami managed to beat

Zolder, Paul Ricard, Silverstone & even Spa in the public vote to claim its rightful throne.

Earlier on we stated that there would be one repeat race length for this Championship, and that

comes at Round 3 wherein the World Tour drivers will take on the 3-Hours of Donington. This

venue will be one of the most challenging races of the season despite the length of the race being

the combined shortest for the season. This will primarily be down to driver inexperience around

Donington Park as it’s a circuit which is not featured often within sim racing events in general.

There’s plenty more to come though as the second half of the World Tour will feature 3 back-toback

races in which the race lengths are of 6-Hours or more, something never seen before within

RCI. The 8-Hours of Monza will kickstart the second half of the season in style before we head to

France for the 6-Hours of Paul Ricard at the famous Le Castellet circuit. Finally, we’ll head over to

the land of the rising sun wherein the 10-Hours of Suzuka will round out the Championship.

8


The Invitational Split for the World Tour is divided into two classes, Pro & Silver. The Pro Class is primarily filled

with some of the best drivers in ACC. Esports names like Elvin Smith, Darren King, James Parker, Chris Hoeke, Mike

Nobel and many more make up the 23 Pro Class Teams. Without further ado, let’s meet the World Tour Pro Class!

The Orion Race Team (#126 Bentley) has been competing

in RCI Endurance Races since our first Endurance Race

in August 2020, the 6-Hours of Barcelona, and are one

of only a handful of Teams to have entered every single

RCI Endurance Race to date. They’re statistically the most

sucessful Team in RCI history with 4 podiums & 1 win

from 6 RCI Endurance Races. They also won the RCI

Endurance Championship last year with 5 wins in 8 Races.

Their entry features the familiar Italian duo of Matthias

Egger & Fulvio Barozzini, they’ll be joined by Romano

Berinic & Giuseppe Montalbano in an attempt to keep

their run of success going throughout the World Tour.

They’ll face stiff competition from another one of RCI’s

most succesful Teams, FFS Racing (#123 Lexus). The FFS

Racing outfit, widely known for the Esports duo of Mike

Nobel & Andre Franke will be taking to the grid alongside

Gergo Panker & Jarkko Torvinen.

FFS Racing have won 3 of the 4 RCI Endurance Races they

have competed in with Mike Nobel wrapping up 2020 as

the RCI Porsche Cup Season 2 Champion just days after

he and Andre Franke had taken a win in the 9-Hours of

Imola hosted in partnership with Jardier.

Speaking of Jardier (Jaroslav Honzk), he’ll be racing

within the Jardier Community Team (#39 Ferrari) headed

by Valentin Barrier & Krzysztof Maczkowski. Jardier has

finished on the podium in only 1 of his 5 RCI Endurance

Race appearances but has still managed an impressive

collection of wins amongst RCI’s regular Championships.

Speaking of wins in regular Championships, the CDA/

NOP (#899 Bentley) Team sees the Coach Dave Academy

Expert James Parker team up with the Nearly on Pace

duo of Mikael Sundstrom & Alexander Guglia. And if that

wasn’t enough, everyones favourite Esports driver for hire,

Joe McAuley, will also be joining them to create one of

the most exciting driver line-ups in the Championship.

James Parker won the 3-Hours of Nurburgring in the GT4

Class and finished runner-up in the 12-Hours of Bathurst

alongside Samir Ibraimi. Joe McAuley meanwhile, is yet to

finish on the podium in an RCI Endurance Race.

On the topic of podiums, Racing Line Motorsport are

quickly establishing themselves within RCI’s Endurance

Races with back-to back podiums in the 3-Hours of Imola

& the 9-Hours of Imola, the former being a dominant win.

Building on the form they picked up towards the end of

last year, Racing Line Motorsport have submitted 2

entries for the World Tour! The first is the Racing Line

Motorsport #191 Team(#191 Ferrari) of Marek Schinz,

Kevin Siclari & Samuel Ratz. The Racing Line Motorsport

#194 is in the hands of the Akos Gyetvan, Marco Macri,

Matteo Catozzi & Bence Matyasi.

Whilst plenty of Teams in the World Tour are hoping to

build on momentum gathered towards the end of last

year, others are hoping to put their demons to bed with

a positive start to 2021. This could be no further from the

truth for the PCDC Motorsports Team.

The PCDC Motorsports (#12 McLaren) Team haven’t had

the best of luck in RCI’s Endurance Events. From crashing

out of the 3-Hours of Spa to being turned around on the

first lap of the 9-Hours of Imola, they’ve had their fair

share of bad luck & driver errors. But the PCDC squad of

Marcus Lawrence, Vincent Erbrich, Till Vornam & Thomas

Arensman will be hoping to put that behind them.

Another Team hoping to turn their fortunes around is the

PiNK Performance Team (#25 Audi). If the name doesn’t

sound familiar to you, that’s not too surprsing, the Team

used to go by the name Mucke Motorsport but have

rebranded themselves for 2021 but still carry the same

goal as before, race to win, no more, no less.

Their Team only attended 2 of RCI’s 6 Endurance Races

last year, the 3-Hours of Nurburgring & the 3-Hours of

Imola, and as such only have 1 Top 10 finish to show for.

The Team is still headed by Wolff Mattuschka, Phil Vitt &

Mitja Bonca, but this time they’re joined by Daniel Ferrier.

Whilst a significant portion of the grid are Teams that

have established themselves within RCI via our regular

Championships & Events or via our Endurance Races,

this isn’t the case for every Team participating within the

World Tour. Some of them have only competed in 1 RCI

Event entirely, which means they must crazy fast to earn a

spot in the Pro Class already, right?

9


Well, this is the case concerning for the GTWR Racing

Team (#34 Lamborghini), they made their debut in the

3-Hours of Imola after wrapping up the SimGrid World

Cup 2020 with 3 wins from 4 races, an impressive feat for

any Team, nevermind one competing at Esports level.

Their entry consists of Andrea Benedetti, Corrado Ciriello,

Roberto Scorpati & Chris Harteveld. They’ll be looking

to replicate the success of the Team that dominated the

SimGrid World Cup 2020.

Standing in their way though will be a familiar foe, and

a name we’re getting quite familiar with across the RCI

Endurance Races. The SideMaxMotorworks Team, like

Racing Line Motorsport, has 2 entries.

The first is the SideMax Motorworks (#95 Mercedes)

piloted by Sam Cairns, Owen Wenlock, Lukas Kreuzer &

Marcell Fuzy. The SideMax Motorworks (#96 Audi) lines

up with the familiar sight of Killian Ryan-Meenan, Niels

van de Koekelt, Michael Kundakcioglu & George Boothby.

Whilst this doesn’t cover all the Teams present within the

Pro Class of the World Tour, there are plenty more to look

out for as the Renwelten Pro Team, Griphax Engineering,

Odox Motorsport, Dalking Community Team & ODB

Racing are all going to be taking part as well!

10


Whilst the Pro Class is expected to draw most of the attention throughout the Championship, there is little reason

to dismiss the Silver Class, despite its title, this field is full of drivers that are more than qualified to race in the Pro

Class under normal circumstances, but were just short of the mark this time around. Let’s run through them then!

For starters, we have a Team which has been around the

blocks more times than even they can remember. The

Triple R (#333 McLaren) Team take to the World Tour with

their eyes on the prize of becoming the World Tour Silver

Class Champions.

Their line-up consists of fan favourite Billy Octane, RCI

Admin Harry Conway, Ismael Labrecque & RCI Steward

Mia Swensen. Whilst they don’t hold any podiums to their

name within RCI Endurance Races, Triple R has seen

plenty of success within RCI’s regular Championships,

with Harry Conway as the reigning Night Owl Champion.

Joining them in Silver Class field is the Connection Lost

Racing (#404 Ferrari) Team. As a Team, Connection Lost

Racing have had mixed success in RCI’s Endurance Races.

Having made an appearance in all 6 RCI Endurance Races

so far they finished on the podium twice, however, both

of those podiums came within the GT4 Class.

Bart Matyja leads the line-up with Ondrej Dedecek, Peter

Roche & Martin Lorenc rounding out their entry. They’ll

be hoping that this Championship will be their best

chance to snatch that elusive RCI Endurance Race win.

Not to be outdone though, the GC Racing Team will also

be aiming to claim their first RCI Endurance Race win

throughout the World Tour. The closest they’ve come to

the podium in an RCI Endurance Race was in the 3-Hours

of Nurburgring where they finished 5th.

But this time, things are different, because GC Racing has

brought 2 Teams to this Championship, and they plan

don’t plan on playing nice. The GC Racing #1 (#411 BMW)

is headed by Martin Schumacher, Marco Ripper & Stefan

Zero. Meanwhile, the GC Racing #2 (#514 Lexus) is

piloted by Tobias Geider, Stephan Qui, Christian Bock &

David Migzorn. It’s all or nothing for GC Racing.

They aren’t the only Team fielding 2 entries though, as

the Buttler-Pal Motorsport Team have also got 2 Teams

competing for the title of Silver Class Champion.

Their first entry, the Buttler-Pal Motorsport #555 (#555

McLaren) is under the supervision of SRO Esports driver

Nicolas Hillebrand, he’ll be joined by SimGrids very own

Luke Rogers, Nicky Hays & Aamir Thacker.

Their second entry, the Buttler-Pal Motorsport #556 (#556

Aston Martin) will be under the control of Aiden Browe,

Johannes Weiss, Alexander Biasizzo & Richard Schaefer.

Whilst some Teams are focused on fielding as many

entries as possible to get at least one of them on the top

step of the podium, other are more concerned about

fielding a single entry with all their available talent.

The OTL Racing (#21 McLaren) Team are the latter. Whilst

OTL themselves are mostly known for their community

racing across multiple sims, their ACC Team is nothing to

be ashamed of. Joe Le Coree, Kieran Sharp, Andrew Pike

& Jonathan Atkinson complete an impressive line-up for

OTL in their attempt to overthrow the established.

Another Team focused on fielding the best line-up they

can is the Pole Position Racing (#1 Porsche) Team. They

took Pole Position, oddly enough, for the 6-Hours of

Barcelona under the WeShite Team Name.

Both Nicolas Bosselet & Lukas Rommel were part of the

Team that finished 7th at the 6-Hours of Barcelona due

to a gridding error that forced them to start from the

pitlane. They’ll be joined by Cody Pryde & Wout Vervoort

to round out their line-up for the World Tour.

Not all Teams are fielding multiple line-ups within the

same class though, and the Open Visor Racing Club #777

(#777 McLaren) Team is a prime example. OVRC have

a Team competing within the Pro & Silver Class for the

World Tour to see if they stand a chance at claiming a

Double-Crown Championship.

The Silver Class OVRC Team is driven by Sebastien

Brunier, Tom Pottage, John Dalton & Thomas Olsen. With

their focus being split across multiple classes, it’ll be

interesting to track how both Teams perform.

OVRC aren’t alone in this effort though, as the Jardier

Community Team has also fielded a Silver Class car to

split their focus across multiple classes. The Jardier

Community Team 2 (#84 Aston Martin) is in the hands of

Mike Williams, Stuart Clarke, Alexander Secher & Nico

Laukkarinen. It’s looking tasty already in the Silver Class!

11


We aren’t done yet though as the Team Zero Bad Luck

(#247 McLaren) will be another Team to keep your eyes

on this season. Leo Hirvonen will lead the line-up along

with Matthew Kennedy & David Kelly.

But keeping them in check will be the SIMSNRIGS (#59

Audi) Team. They’ve featured in several Endurance Races

across multiple communities last year but are yet to make

their mark in the top Split of an RCI Endurance Race. Ibee

Atta is joined by Nedim Zeco & Chris Cooper for the

season as they gear up for the World Tour.

A Team that has left their mark on an RCI Endurance Race

is the 300 Ping Motorsport (#300 Mercedes) Team. They

finished as the winners of the 6-Hours of Barcelona in the

AM Class but have failed to replicate that performance in

any of their future endeavours in the top Split.

The Team retains the original trio of Erik Engman, Jeroen

Remmers & Adrien Stefanello from that event but have

now added Alex Gal to their line-up to bolster their pace.

It’s also worth noting that the Excel Racing Team (by

Renwelten), Cryonics Racing, 2SRL Esports & MSVR will

also be joining the aforementioned field of cars for the

season. This is definitely worth keeping an eye on!

KYALAMI

18


KYALAMI GRAND PR

Location: Johannesburg, South Africa

Founded: 1961 (Last changed 2016)

Length: 2.85 MI / 4.58 KM

Lap Record: 1:41.581 (Honda NSX GT3, 2020)

Kyalami is the crown jewel of South African

racing circuits with a history stretching back to

1961, the circuit has hosted international racing

series at multiple points throughout its history.

21 South African GP’s, a 9-Hour Endurance Race

hosted by SRO’s IGTC and the hopes of a WEC

debut in 2022 means the circuit has a lot going

in its favour to solidify its place as the greatest

racing circuit on the African continent.

Kyalami originally started out in a much more

simplified state than the layout seen today. The

straight between Sunset & Barbeque did not

exist and the circuit ran in a clockwise direction

instead of the anti-clockwise direction today.

Corners like Mineshaft, The Crocodiles &

Cheetah wouldn’t begin to exist until 1993 when

Kyalami went through a massive reprofile of its

layout to move the start/finish straight &

paddock to a more convenient location.

After the major reprofile of the circuit, changes

would still be made to the layout to improve

the circuit safety and attract international racing

back to the circuit after Formula 1’s departure in

1985 due to a controversial South African law.

The desire to see a South African GP again was

delivered in 1992 & 1993 but was short-lived

due to their financial struggles. Kyalami’s efforts

to attract international racing had succeeded

but at the cost of not being able to afford to

host a Formula 1 GP for the foreseeable future.

19

2014 would be the light at the end of the

tunnel for the circuit though as a new investor

acquired the circuit and invested a significant

amount of resources into getting Kyalami up

to an FIA Grade 2 venue. From then onwards

the appearance of IGTC’s 9-Hour event and the

possibility of a WEC race in 2022 meant Kyalami

had finally recovered its international status.

QUALIFYING RECAP

Qualifying for the 24-Hours of Kyalami would take place

one week before the event itself and would be split into

a 30-minute Qualifying session followed by the Top 10

teams heading into a one lap Superpole session to decide

the front 5 rows of the grid ahead of this weeks race.

The RennWelten Pro Team #249 would be the first car to

start a flying lap and their Lamborghini managed a solid

1:40.473 to get the times going but was immediately beat

by The SideMax Motorworks #96 Audi who would go to the

top of the charts with a 1:40.122 after the first few laps.

The GTWR Racing Team #34 Lamborghini would be the

first car to break the 39 barrier with 24 minutes to go. A

1:39.897 would be the best their team could manage in the

session, but quicker times were coming from those behind.

The SideMax Motorworks #96 Audi would go back to the

top of the timings with 9-minutes to go before a brilliant

lap from the CDA/NoP #899 Bentley would see them go

fastest on the last lap of the Qualifying session.

With Qualifying officially over it would be the CDA/NoP team that would top the timing sheets for

the Qualifying session with a 1:39.846 to assert themselves as Pole Position contenders.

SideMax Motorworks #96, GTWR Racing Team, Open Visor Racing Club #199, Racing Line

Motorsport #191, Odox Motorsport, RennWelten Pro Team, Orion Race Team, PiNK Performance &

Like And Subscribe Team would all make it through to the Superpole session as well.

The CDA/NoP team would be the first to head out on track

for Superpole and would set a 1:40.377 to give everyone

after them a benchmark to follow. This time would be

beaten almost immediately though as the SideMax

Motorworks #96 team would come out after them to set a

1:40.065, a time that would prove difficult to beat.

Get beaten it would be though as the GTWR Racing Team

would be the only team capable of claiming the honour of

Pole Position for the 24-Hours of Kyalami with a 1:40.014.

Following up would be the Open Visor Racing Club #199

with a 1:40.359, their time wouldn’t be beaten by the next

team as the Racing Line Motorsport #191 would only

manage a 1:40.422 leaving them at the back of the Top 10.

Odox Motorsport would then see out a 1:40.347, quickly

followed by the RennWelten Pro Team’s 1:40.230 and the

Orion Race Team’s 1:40.248. The PiNK Performance team

would set a 1:40.314 and the Like And Subscribe Team

would end the Superpole with a 1:40.326.

THE NEW STANDARD IN DRIVER COACHING!

RaceFace is one of the most prominent sim racing communities in South Africa, leading the way

with ACC leagues and endurance races to grow participation in the sport, but also improving the

level of skill and competition, RaceFace now provides driver training through a newly founded

division called Speed Labs, headed by South Africa’s very own Jordan Sherratt & Bruno Cadilhe.

Speedlabs offer a variety of services to sim racers of all skill levels, from beginner to pro, Speed

Labs can help you identify your weaknesses, analyse your driving style and correct your mistakes.

Training sessions cover a wide variety of topics from sim racing basics & car setup, all the way up

to racecraft & race strategy, whatever you need to improve, Speed Labs have the answers.

We also offer group sessions wherein you can save money and train together with your teammates

in preparation for your next big team event or you can get a detailed analysis of your replays if

some quick tips & feedback is all you need to improve your lap times.

Driver Coaching Sessions

Replay Reviews

$45.00/Session $55.00/Session $65.00/Session $25.00/Person $10.00/Replay $20.00/Replay

The good news doesn’t end there though, because thanks to the partnership between RaceFace

& Racing Club International you can save money on what is already an incredible value service. By

using the RCI Affiliate Code “RCICoaching” you can save on your next Speed Labs session!

You can find more information about all of the services above by visiting the RaceFace website.

Whilst you’re there, check out some of their Events & Championships as they are always looking to

accommodate drivers of all skills levels into their community.
