Wolf Racing - for managers strong enough to run on their own, but wise enough to run with the pack.

Wolf Racing is composed of a group of managers focused on creating a positive, fun and rewarding community within the game. We are a very active group of managers who wish to reach the top but not at the expense of any one individual's enjoyment of the game.

We are in no rush to fill the team, we are looking for the right fit for our group, sheep not admitted :)

So send us a message, anyone on the team will do... we make all such decisions in a unanimous fashion. Whether you be new or experienced, it doesn't matter. Let's talk about you, us, your goals, our goals and whether those line up. If they don't, no big deal we can part as friends .... if it does work out, you'll join a fiercely loyal pack in our march towards glory!


and sheep killing, sheep are yummy.



oh... dont go near that tree.... its mine.... I peed on it.

I'm not sure how to follow up the OP right there, but I'll say that we have 6 places available in Wolf Racing, and would also like to welcome well known game and forum legend Finn Shaw McIver

At the moment we have

Daniel Douglast- he wont score as many team points as me this season because he's red lol
Ankite: The wizkid who's slow this season
Finn Shaw McFishguts: promoting from amateur by accident

and me, the man who brought you all neuronball, the meme thread, the discord, and even the like/dislike buttons weren't here until after i suggested it :D



So in all seriousness, I am very pleased with how this team is shaping up and I truly believe that with the areas we're focusing on, we will create a fun long-term environment and will also be quite competitive after some time.

So no matter what your position is in the game, fresh rookie or elite champion, send any one of us a message and we'll start the recruiting process with you. If you would like to enjoy the game, while also making proper advancements with a mix of fun and strategic discussions, this is the team for you.

And by the way I peed on that tree.

I know what you're all thinking - 'I don't even know who Ankit is'. Neither do I, my phone keeps changing his name to Anita.

We are looking for managers that can contribute something to a team, as one space has already been wasted on Luke. No that doesn't mean you have to be a coder, but as long as you want to actively get involved and share the load with the rest of us then we want to hear from you. If you have a special talent that will help, for example I am the pretty one.

And to prove how much we like sharing, you are welcome to contact whichever one of us you like. Just to warn you that Daniel does get tired as his body tries to digest all the chemicals Americans put in their food.

Clearly I didn't come up with the name, we killed the last wolf in Britain 340 years ago.

Send one of us a DM to briefly let us know why I am the reason you're interested in joining, and a brief overview of yourself. We do have a discord chat to get to know you a bit better - although if you're an elite champion we can skip that.

I know what you're all thinking - 'I don't even know who Ankit is'. Neither do I, my phone keeps

As my teamie Finn knows me quite well I am Ankit or ‘an kit’ the most common autocorrect. i am the person with the least experience in team with just the first season in ammy. this season. I am a huge f1 fan and appreciate it's engineering/technical more and I tricked the wolf members to believe that I have a very good grasp over lap time simulation, roll - ride gradients, tyre modeling, yaw moment diagrams to get me a place, I was successful but I doubt that it will benefit u as they know reality now.

As u know we are a new team the team is planning to take members slowly so that we align perfectly to goals... positive environment and activity keep motivated when u have a bad race, but IMO apart from these valuable things if someone can put other things on the table for team development that would be a major plus.it's understandable not everyone is a programmer, coder or willing to do analysis... but i think everyone can help the team in progressing in some way or other depending on the individual we aim to extract the best out of every team member and hence be the best team targeting silverware is the ultimate goal. Your past in GPRO is of interest, but your future is what we really care about. it can tricky to know exactly what our team is like from the outside so you should feel free to ask questions too – as informed above we tend to know each other well before progressing to the glory path. As the characteristics of the wolf suggest – unity is in our blood with every member contributing in their own way making the pack stronger and successful and rule the jungle. Some advantages of joining now –
1.You can say ‘go fast fooker’ to DD even when u are slower than him - he is red
2.Make fun of slower frosty - almost every race
3. Irritate Finn when u have a better result than him while he is accidentally promoting
feel free to DM any of our members to tell ur story, interests, plans, and rest of the things u think that makes u a wolf.
some prerequisites - u have to like Alonso and agree that he deserved it in 2007,2010 and 2012.

Cast of real characters aren't they.... well they think so haha ;)


So I've got to ask, what are you looking for in a team? That is a question I cannot answer for you, but I can take a moment to speak about where we want to go.

The road behind us has been rocky.

You see between us we have been a member of a few teams, across the spectrum of the standings from top teams to those which are further down the rankings. What many of us have found is that there was something lacking. In some teams that is the drive for performance, the willingness to commit to improvement of both individual managers and the team as a whole. In others its the community, some with a very negative or hard nosed approach towards each other.

We don't like that.

For us, we each long for a positive, fun community that also pushes for success. Perhaps being unable to find that combination of both drive to succeed and positive community is what has driven some of our members to have left the game, only to come back again to resume that search. Perhaps that is what has driven a few of us to reach where we have currently arrived.

But we are here now.

A group of individuals, some with some past history. Some with a lot of baggage. Some with a little success. One (Luke) that is really slow. But together we have come, to form our own wolf pack, inherently loyal to one another, fierce in our competition but always a little playful within our circle of friends.

Pushing for success.

Not at the cost of friendship. Not at the cost of positivity. Instead we wish to build what we have not been able to find elsewhere. A path that is both fun to travel and rewardingly successful along the way.

In search of Wolves.

We are looking for active managers, not the "log in on race day and plug in some numbers" type. You do not need to be strong with coding, or even managing your team. We can help with that. Similarly you do not necessary need to the chatty Kathy. We hope to build a community you will want to interact with. At the end of the day though, interaction in a positive manner and the ability to contribute in some way is extremely important.

So who are you?

Are you a wolf or a sheep? Do you yearn for success as the wolf yearns for the lamb? Are you loyal and committed to your friends? Send us a message and lets get together in discord and talk a little. We won't bite...... at first.

What are you looking for in a team?

The atmosphere in the team is very enthusiastic right now. The banter on the discord server is pretty hilarious almost all hours of the day because of the timezone crossovers :P

We have 6 spots available.

We are guiding Ankit (a very active new player who’s currently building race cars in formula student https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formula_Student ) in a pretty careful way to preserve his long-term enthusiasm…. and this kind of atmosphere is something I hope you would like to be a part of. Adapting to what is needed.


For us 3, the experience of having been a part of (and in mine & Finn’s case, established & led) great teams with very versatile approaches (some very success-oriented, some very banter/activity-oriented, some in between) has given us a road map towards carefully planning how to cover all the pot holes teams always experience.

For example: The initial atmosphere will not always remain. Teams get ‘stale’ after a while. Most teams who go through this process have what seems to be 3 options: slowly burn out collectively until everyone retires, create a sister team, or trying to find the love of the game they had in the past. Problem with the first option is obvious (team eventually liquidates). Problem with the second option is the tensions generally come to a head at some point in family teams. Problem with the third option is all 10 managers will never be the same as they once were and frustration will seep in and the options will present themselves again.

We believe we have the secret ingredients to cover such issues, while also keeping motivation within the team at a high. We want to be the team champions. Daniel wants to promote from Master in his second decade playing. We want to rise up and experience how it’s like to compete for Elite wins.


One thing I think should be noted, is Daniel Douglas may be a joker but he is easily the best team leader I’ve ever seen in any gaming environment. The work behind the scenes to cover all areas is excellent and I know he wouldn’t like to see that posted about him but it’s true.


If you’re looking for tools…. Of course we’ve got tools, and we’re developing more detailed ones too. For example, Finn was a tool a long time ago and we’re abusing Ankit so much he could be a massive tool in no time :D

So our expectations as far as skills are concerned is broad, the skills come with time. Contributing to the goals also comes with motivation.

Whether you’re a newbie or a dinosaur, consider joining us, to preserve your long-term enthusiasm for this game and rise up towards elite with a big smile on your face.


Contact any one of us any way you would like to if you’re interested and we'll start the process!

Hey everyone.

Welcome the new member of the Wolfpack, Stephen Snyder. He was voted in unanimously and enthusiastically by the team.

We have 5* spots available
*at the moment we have a fairly decent amount of interest and that 5 will shrink to 4, maybe 3 within the next week (or 2), so if you're thinking about it, don't miss the chance as we don't plan on having free spots for a long time once we're full...




We don't request GPRO to become like a chore or similar to a job for you if you team with us, we expect that you have fun while moving forward.



For the rest of the info check the above 6 posts, where we each detail our unique approach, almost all of our team values are highlighted and what we'd expect from people who would wanna join

Hello Ladies, Gentlemen and racers of most ages! I'm Stephen and I now run with the pack that is Wolf Racing!

You guys might not know this, but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. But when I found Wolf Racing, I knew they were some of my own. And my wolf pack... it grew by four. So there... there were five of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Dan added me, and then Luke, Ankit, and Finn joined in before me... One month ago, when Dan introduced me to the pack, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added four more guys to my wolf pack. Five of us wolves, running around GPRO together, driving fast and chasing gold cups.

As a new member to both the game and the team, I can unequivocally say Wolf Racing is everything you hope for when you join an online game like GPRO. Competitive, Competent, a bit Callus, and a whole lot of Fun.

At the heart of it all, we stress being active, being loyal, and being a good person. Morale and motivation are high and we plan to keep it that way. GPRO should not be a second job, but it is cool to care.

As mentioned above, the team does have plenty of tools, but they are also geeks, freaks, and jocks.

If you think you've got what it takes, give us a shout. Contributing team members come in all speeds, shapes and sizes. Feel free to contact any team member with why you fit and why we need you!!!!

@Jason Claydon (P8) is our 6th member. In a small amount of seasons he has carefully calculated how to dominate seasons, make plans for it and practice smashing every group until it emerges one day that its the elite title hes after.

We have a very active group already + a solid plan to move forward and become a championship (individual & team) winners!

4 spots available. Message any of us about it.

Our next member may surprise some people.

Dont miss the chance. The march of the wolves, once the pack is formed, loyalty and ferocity towards goals is whats next. (Aka the 10 who join are the 10 who win)

Hello all :)
And so now I am a proper Wolf, and if you play your cards right you could be too! But don’t sit on your potential paws! As patient as we are to add the right people, it would be in your interests not to be.

This is by far the most vibrant, social, active and slightly disturbing team I have been in. The chat channels are alive, the forum is buzzing with ideas, fun and the motivation is very high. This is the first time in my GPRO career that I feel like the quiet one! It’s a great time to be a Wolf.

But there is a serious desire and team collective to achieve too, a nice mix of fun and ambition, an understanding and appreciation of what it is to be a team, a long term goal to build something special.

Think we might be a fit for you? Send your application in to anyone in the team, and do it FAST!
Whilst there is no shame in being a lone Wolf, it’s much better to be part of the Pack.

Good today to you!

We are crazy excited about our newest members that have joined, even if one of them is affectionately referred to as slomo.... well at least thats what I plan on referring to him as :)

Its been a bit of a whirlwind lately, frankly I did not expect to see the interest that has been expressed in joining our little wolf pack thus far. Its been really great tbh, while we have talked to a large number of managers and continue discussions with a few more .... there is still a deep desire to ensure we take things slowly and bring on board those which best round out our group.

We are still searching for the next wolf.... is it you?

You've seen a few words from us above. New managers and old alike, we even have a young cub with some amazing facial hair, all can be considered.

For us it is not your experience we are concerned with. For sure great experiences evolve us all into the people we are but it is not just game experiences that really count.

Who are you as a person? Do you lounge on the hillside eating grass allowing others to determine your fate? If so, please come ready with salt and pepper, we could use a good meal.

We are wolves.... we prowl the night, howling at the moon and generally causing trouble among the sheep of the world. Is that you? Are you a lone wolf in search of a pack to run with? Are you a fierce predator stuck in a group of lapdogs?


Be shy if you wish, its a telling characteristic of sheep and I'm hungry. Otherwise, shoot us a howl and talk. It may not work out, but then again you might find a dedicated family to run with. In the end, we will join or part as friends having each gained new experiences which will only make us stronger!

The moon is bright!




Don't touch that rock, I peed on it..... its mine.
