It was an exciting weekend for the SCS On the Road team at the FIA ETRC races at Hungaroring, Hungary. We did not see much of the race, as we were always busy entertaining the visitors of our sim trailer. This is what we like the most anyway, interacting with people new to truck simulation as well as chatting with loyal fans of our games who come to see us in the flesh.
This time, our crew was complemented by help from the local truck sim fan community. It turned out to be a fantastic addition to our team, as both @John_Barth and @gebbbe are super experienced players of the game as well as really cool guys.
The kind organizers of the ETRC series managed to secure two seats in the pace truck opening the race for our team, and we were happy to pass the fun on to them, so the boys enjoyed a crazy once-in-a-lifetime moment.
Meanwhile, tons of visitors have come to experience our simulation, including professional drivers, and it is really music to our ears when we hear their praise.
The sunny weekend is over now, and we are on the way back to Prague. The race drivers and their teams are also on their way back to base or even to the next destination - Germany's famous Nürburgring. We thought this give us an excuse to prolong the current World of Trucks event by a couple of days. There are still close to three thousand people with 11 or 10 deliveries completed out of the total of 12 required to succeed in the event. Whether it's the football on TV or whether it was the nice weekend weather, these players did manage to find the time to finish their last job. We felt they deserve a chance, so we are prolonging the event till midnight of July 19th. We will draw the winners the following day.
Last but not Least... based on the experience of including the members of local fan community into our On the Road crew, we think we should do it again. We would like to ask for your help on the future events. If you would like to become a part of the show for a weekend along the core team from SCS Software, please let us know. Successful candidates are 18+, native speakers of the region of a given event, have great social skills, they should be knowledgeable players of our games and active members of the fan community, ideally with a history of involvement with our open or closed betas, or perhaps recognized creators from the modding community, so that we can do a little background check on them. If you are ready to sacrifice two days of your time, have the skill and the passion to become a "roadie" and become embedded into our crew, please get in touch with us by mail on firstname.lastname@example.org.
