GP Explorer – An event hosted by Squeezie on Twitch featuring Gotaga, Amixem, Vilebrequin and many others!
Saturday October 8th was organized by Squeezie the GP Explorer. It was a Formula 4 race that faced 22 drivers from 11 teams for the occasion. fully framed by the FFSA, the French Federation of Motor Sports, was not taken lightly at all. Months of training with theory and practical lessons, simulator and kart sessions were carried out even before the 22 content creators could get into their car.
And at the same time, you have to realize that these vehicles They are capable of reaching 250 km/h. and that they are very different from classic cars. It is not only the speed that increases, there are many aspects that are totally unrelated to other vehicles, such as tire management, that have to be taken into account. The track and all the rules related to the race must also be learned.
Safety was the priority during this circuit. At this speed, an accident between two vehicles can have serious repercussions.
The program for the day of the GP Explorer
From 9 in the morning, the 22 runners were on the circuit for free practice. The opportunity to get back into the swing of things, to rediscover the feeling with your car, but also to warm up the track to allow for good grip for the future.
At 10 in the morning it was time for the classification, which took place in three phases until around noon. The race itself, of 15 laps, was scheduled for 5:00 p.m. and allowed Sylvain Levy of the YouTube channel Vilebrequin to be crowned champion after an intense duel for first place with Pierre-Olivier Valette, alias Depielo.
It was at the Bugatti circuit in Le Mans that it all happened. It is made up of 11 curves that must be taken with caution so as not to be left in the background. Among them, the famous Dunlop chicane with turns 2 and 3. Quite complicated to understand, several drivers found themselves in the gravel because of it during practice.
Since the beginning of the day, many loses of control occurred. Between the stress, the lack of experience of the riders, but also and above all the lack of grip, several of them got scared. Please note that if the track is cold; Like the morning before, the drivers have done a few laps: and the tires are cold, the grip is at its weakest!
Joyca’s impressive accident during qualifying
But the most impressive accident did not take place during the tests. againstIt was in the second qualifying phase that everyone got scared. Sure enough, Joyca lost control and found herself in the background.
The video clip of the accident
The front of the car is completely demolished. The spectators, the organization and the presenters, all are shocked. The culprit: the Dunlop chicane, which all the pilots feared from the beginning. At this point, all you have to do is ease off the throttle briefly and the steering wheel isn’t perfectly at the right angle for everything to spin.
But Fortunately more fear than harm! The car is badly damaged, but Joyca escapes unharmed.
The qualifying phase is quickly brought to a halt, and at this point, Joyca’s dream of racing slips away completely. After the scare, she will go to the set to give her news. And these are excellent considering the accident that took place! Only a slight pain remains in the lower back.
Returning to action, he indicates that for him, going into the corner, everything was fine. He was serene. But that didn’t stop him from losing grip and ending up in the background.
During the accident, he keeps his eyes closed. There is nothing left to do but wait for him, control is totally lost. For a moment that seemed like an eternity, he has time to turn his life over.
After the scare, the organization of the race reacted very quickly. Red flag, end of qualifying and above all, the race marshals (volunteers) arrive immediately to help the driver.
Joyca’s accident from her point of view
Very soon we realize that he is after Joyca. Information is transmitted efficiently and quickly – you are in good health. His first instinct once out of the vehicle: to ask what his time was! And it must be said that he was not bad, since it would have allowed him to start 12th on the grid. On the set we see him calm and in good health.
“You have the right to laugh, I’m fine!” joyca
Even if the car is badly damaged, all is not lost for it! In fact, the FFSA engineers and mechanics are hard at work trying to get it back on the road in time for the race. Nothing is certain, but there is hope.
And Joyca still wants to be able to participate. Although he will go slower than he could have and he is afraid of having a mental block, he feels ready to go back to normal if he gets the chance.
A little before 3:00 p.m. the news arrived: the car was repaired and Joyca would start in 12th position on the starting grid! The work of the mechanics was extraordinary, saving the vehicle in just a few hours.
The one who could have been deprived of the race still managed to finish it in the twentieth position. A very nice result if we take into account everything that happened to him!
And to end on a positive note, it should be noted that the sponsor of the Joyca stable was Rhinoshield. And clearly, it couldn’t have been better, the front of the car had perfectly protected the driver.
