Interview #3 is up and is about one of our long-time French members, Yves Plaçais. As for all the future interviews of French speaking members, it is available both in French and in English, depending if you access the site via its French or English homepage.

Thanks to Yves for having taken the time to answer our questions :chinois: !

One new interview :banane: :banane: :banane:
...and another way of seeing simracing.

And from one of french oldtimer legends :chinois: . I'm quite sure no frenchman had a longer and as good simracing career as Yves. One of the most regular pilots ever if I may

I am flattered to being mentioned by Yves as a driver he admires. :hello: Nice read, glad to get to know you better!

Quote :
Your ultimate simracing nightmare : That HSO would cease to exist. Also, a power outage in the last turn on my way to victory in the 1982 Nürburgring 1000 Kms of the WEC. Not to mention a full season of racing exclusively held at Magny-Cours.

Haha!

For me, i can't see the pics. I first have to click "Show image", then go back to the page and then the image will be loaded.

Using Mozilla Firefox 51.0.1 on Windows 8.1

Yes and several already have answered :jp: ! One of them should be the next to be published I think Smile

Thanks for the feedback pics guys. The site is optimised for Google Chrome so that may be why some of you have troubles seeing them Neutral I'll see if I can do anything about it though Wink.

The interview could be missing a question. Isn't (or wasn't) Yves a race marshall during the 24 hours Le Mans? I know some of our french "aliens" used to be.

Could also have been nice to ask if Karel, Jacob and the following fellows had ever had a true motor racing activities (driver, copilot, marshall or anything else related to racing). It could be nice to know that some of us are linking their simracing hobby to a true activity in motor racing. My two cent though

Oui, c'est vrai, Ludo, merci de le souligner, cela fait effectivement 38 ans cette année que je suis commissaire, entre autres épreuves, aux 24H du Mans. Et cela fait 50 éditions auxquelles j'ai assisté sans en louper une seule.... sauf cette année où des activités artistiques et musicales plus que prenantes vont m'empêcher d'y assister, et c'est un vrai crève-coeur.
Alors, c'est peut-être inconsciemment que j'ai omis d'en parler dans l'interview.

D'un autre côté, étant responsable d'une équipe de commissaires, et totalement impliqué dans cette fonction (petit rouage, indispensable certes, d'une énorme organisation très complexe), si mon côté "bénévole" sortait de chaque édition satisfait du travail accompli, mon côté "fan" était totalement frustré car ne pouvant profiter comme je l'aurai souhaité de LA course. Je me console donc cette année en me disant que je pourrai profiter de la globalité du spectacle grâce aux retransmissions intégrales.

Chef de poste c'est pas un petit rouage je trouve. Pour connaitre un peu l'envers du décor (mon père fait parti du staff en direction de course. Il va d'ailleurs honorer son 50eme depart des 24 Heures cette année en tant que médecin), je sais l'importance d'un bon chef de poste pour la pérénité de l'épreuve.

On a trop souvent tendance à oublier les commissaires de piste. Mais ils sont vitaux pour la bonne marche de l'épreuve. Quand on les voit déblayer la piste en course on a du mal à réaliser les risques que cela implique. Pour avoir pu assister à des courses depuis certains postes (Mulsanne, Indianapolis et le poste en milieu de la ligne droite des Hunaudières...désolé j'ai oublié les numéros qui sont utilisés en fait pour les désigner :D ), je sais très bien ce que cela implique quand un accident arrive.
