    Man, wow...Those graphics are amazing! Very lifelike gameplay right there, I tells ya what!
    Even includes incessant Jimmer mumbling commentary! Damn, these AAA companies skip NO expense, ZERO.

    I'm Sorry. Even though the car did not see me and "pushed me out", I did have enough time to hit the brakes. I misjudged the situation. Also too much Touristenfahrten driving made me forgot how to flash others out of "respect".

      It wasn’t on you at all Misha, you did amazing and everything you could have, it’s racing I guess and super unfortunate): absolutely gutted for you. But we’re all glad you’re okay and you got straight back in that car 💪💪 ❤️ love you

    • General Guilmon
      General Guilmon Před 17 dny +42

      Respect for saying sorry, but I think you did well enough. As a team you all had good pace, the car worked well, and this was only the first big event. It's only going to get better from here, I think you three have a good chance of getting on the podium soon!

    The German commentators during the 12 hours called you “James Broadbent” multiple times and it didn’t register with me for a long time that they meant you. Keep up the great work.

      the english language phenomenon of not only making nicknames that don't at all look like their source names but also then using said nicknames like they were regular names will never not throw me off

    Jimmer sounding like a wedding DJ whilst trying to talk us round the nordschliefe. Making what is a very fast and difficult circuit look straightforward is no mean feat.

    So freaking proud of you Jimmer! You guys did amazing! Thanks so much for all the smiles you've brought me and many others over the years. You may have not finished first in the race, but you'll always be first in our hearts! Enjoy it, you've earned it.

  • Pooky
    Pooky Před 16 dny +2

    I was there as well incase you remember, the younger guy being with you at the start of the race, waiting for the cars to finally pass by and it was so nice having a talk with you, someone who plays a role in me finding my way into irl motorsport. Showing how you can go from sim to irl! Lovely to now see the video to this day!!

    Hey, just want to say that the in-car commentary is really good. Such an insight to how you and the car are feeling in the moment. Hope you can continue this for the N24!

    Who would’ve thought that a silly British boi who would play GT3 from his trusty shed would end up racing everywhere, now including the Nürburgring?
    Seriously, though. I’m so glad I subscribed during those shed days to see this transformation happen; it’s a huge source of inspiration and motivation. ❤

    That's kinda funny that years ago before all this stuff you, Steve and Misha were (and still are) the main guys i used to watch about racing. Couldn't be happier to see you guys where you are right now! Cheers and good luck next week!

  • Iterative and Incremental

    I am so looking forward to next years 24H race! You and Micha are probably my biggest influences to take up virtual lapping on the ring and trying to get into the 'sub 7 club'. I really hope you all get along quite well and have a lot of fun with this.
    When I think about the videos that marked a 'low' on this channel, like the mental health struggles it is super good to see that dreams are followed regardless of such issues and dreams actually can come true.

  • Oldie Man

    This race may not have gone ideally. But it's just one of many. And every one of them is a learning experience. I'm so glad you've got this opportunity and that you can share it with Annie, Misha and Steve. Who knows where this will go from here: SP10s, maybe eve SP9s? The sky is the limit. And I live to see this!

    Henlo Jimmy, great racing there :)
    So, I was wondering, if is not too much to ask, could you show more of the behind the scenes 🥺? Things like, how do you get to the pits the first time, or how the car gets there, the first outlap, the registration process if there is one. I dont know if I'm alone in this, but i would like to know how is to be a part of that world. If you think that it brings value to the video (and is not too much work) i would really appreciate it. Me and all of the likers in this comment :D (narrator: nobody liked)

    I watched a good chunk of the NLS6/7 live streams and the drama that went down so I'm frickin hyped to see the in-car. I don't know why it didn't occur to me that there would be live Jimmer commentary but of course there is - talking while racing is your superpower!

    Richard Dastardly Před 17 dny

    Poor Misha, having a rough patch atm... dealing with people randomly moving around & not checking mirrors an area simracing *can* help, at least from my very minor experience :p hope he's not trying to live up to some self-imposed standard as "the expert". Great to see you having fun there.
    Watched last weekend live, congrats on Sunday ( and Saturday until spoilers )! Misha did a video about "what is RCN" some years ago, I think given the questions in livestream you might want to do something explaining the intricacies of VLN ( stint & average stint lengths, pitstop times, code 60s and how much time you can lose & how you can't pick a fastest driver based on that, what equipment the circuit has for live video feed, etc ). I know there's a lot out there already but you're apparently bringing a new audience to the series.

    I´m absolute no Mercedes Fan, but seing this old 190E evo made me smile. Right where this high reving Masterpiece of engineering belongs, on a Racetrack. I would have wished for an M3 e30 DTM to accompany him. Also, nice Driving, Jimmy. You know, you travel this journey and take all of us, all watchers, patreons and members with you. Its a Pleasure that you have all of us while chasing and fulfilling your Dreams.

    Such a classic Jimmer moment to try and talk in a helmet over a loud race car. Either way, living the dream, mate, for all of us fellow nerds. Having followed your journey for a few years I am very proud of what you have accomplished.
