    Dear GTRacer players/racers,

    As many of you have noticed, GTRacer development was on very low pace.
    With just some minor bug fixes the last months.

    Of course, this was not an easy decision, as for a long time I had (and still have) many ideas to improve the game!
    But... the lack of time is not really helping me with this...
    So, in the past year I talked with 2 possible candidates who would take over the game.
    Yesterday we agreed, and from 1 September I will step down as owner of the game and become a normal player again.

    The new owner has some good ideas to improve the game (more regular championships).
    And also some ideas to solve some bugs that are there for a longer time.

    What and how, I think it is better for the new owner to tell this great news!
    Hopefully GTRacer will exists many more years!
    And as this is the 10th anniversary of the game, I hope you will give a warm welcome to...

    I would like to thank you all for the trust you had in me as player, moderator and administrator of this game.
    And also I want to thank the moderators, (different ones through the years) for helping in this game as well.
    And we will meet again on track, during meetings or on the drag strip!

    P.s. if you have any questions, let me know by pm, or via this topic.

    Also some history:
    2009-2012 Started by Hans, Doeke, Harbie
    2012-2013 Owned by Jasper
    2013-2019 Owned by MarlyNL (me)

    Is this a deliberate cliffhanger? Who is the new owner ;)

    Joking aside, I understand how hard and how much effort was and still is put into this game and I'd love to be able to get back into it again. You've been awesome these past 6 years Marc. (bloody hell, 6 years? I've gained the ability to drink legally in that time lol)

    I'm one of the oldest registred players I think here. I can remember when Hans was the owner :)
    Thanks for everything Marc!

    Sounds like there's going to be some changes here. I've got some insider information on who the new Admin is ... I wonder if I should reveal this information? I'll probably get banned or something!

    I hope I don't get banned for saying this but the new Admin is: @RedStingray73

    First of all, I want to thank @MarlyNL for giving the opportunity to purchase GTRacer! This is one of the most unique racing games that has been built. I want to keep it unique and I will improve this game! I have a 3-subject notebook filled with ideas, things that need fixing, and items that need to be updated.

    @MarlyNL you've taken great care of this game and you kept it alive. Without you and the rest of the GTRacer community we would not have a game to play. I will keep playing this game even if I am the only one online.

    I will make a separate post on my plans for the game, but for now I wanted to share this information with you. And hopefully I won't get banned! LOL!

    Boy

    It's been 10 years already?

    Man, I know that I'm no where near being an experienced player (still now, I can't figure out what's best for each race) but I love this community

    We have a pretty limited community in our hands, but what a great one to say at that. Kind people, friendly, ready to help out pretty much immediately, this is why I play this game (I have been lacking off lately though, the reason? Above :|)

    Just a congratulations and thank you to @RedStingray73 @MarlyNL for keeping the game alive and working

    I still have a list of car that I want to request though, kinda lazy to type in the characteristics :]

    I'm proud to be the only active Vietnamese in the community, and I'm grateful to have you all as players alongside me.

    For me it was 10 years despite being here just for 2 years. This was great experience. Especially when i was racing in club races and keeping up with top players despite driving in beginner races as i have not won too much. Good luck , and thanks for keeping this game alive. It changed my look for a lot of things.

    Yeah about that report, I have been lead to believe that @RedStingray73 has leaked highly classified information. I believe she should be arrested and be made to have dinner with the mafia from mission 5.
