The 2011 RRR German Grand Prix was the third round of the inaugural season of the RRR F1 2011 Championship. It was held at the Nurburgring Circuit, Nurburg, in Germany.
The 2011 RRR German Grand Prix was contested at the Nurburgring, around the German village of Nurburg. The track is new to the F1 2011 game. The track features some fantastic undulating parts and slow hairpins that always provide a great race. However, most of the field complained that they didn't like the track that much.
Joint championship leader Smifaye could not take part, presenting a golden opportunity for Superdelphinus. The race was heading for a record 14-car grid but circumstances and no-shows meant only 10 lined up on the grid.
Practice took place in people's houses throughout the week.
Qualifying was determined by a 15-minute session. Butler258 and Superdelphinus set the pace early on in the session but the times started to drop towards the end of the session. STR TommyB posted a time of 1:27.238 to take his first RRR F1 2011 pole by nearly four tenths of a second.
Pole man STR TommyB suddenly found out his tyres had mysteriously died in between qualifying and the race, dropping him to the back of the field. At the first corner Icthyes braked too late going for the lead and ended up in the gravel, but recovered to slot into 3rd places, up 5 from the grid. On lap 2 leader FlavouryRug spun and collected Butler258 who was shockingly given a penalty for the incident. In the resultant carnage Tomcheesey led from Icthyes and the pair had a one-lap scrap for the lead before the latter pitted for tyres. As Tommy made his way up again and the natural pace settled itself with he and Superdelphinus catching leader Sodamn Insane 6, culminating in an amazing 3-way battle for the lead into Turn 1 with TommyB emerging in the lead. Superdelphinus tried to get into Tommy's DRS gap but could not pass him when the chance came. In the end Tommy crossed the line victorious, barley a second ahead and having posted the fastest lap of 1:29.570, marking the championship's first Perfect Race result. This put him into second in the Drivers Championship and his team BDGP top of the Teams Championship. Shouty came 3rd to collect his and his team's first podium; he was quietly pleased about it.
