Congratulations to Matthew on pole and fastest race lap, and to Kcender for the win.

There was a slight sideways contact between Freezer and ab156 when cars were 3 wide that sent AB off track – racing incident.

Tangle between Shayne and Russ in the 1st chicane – racing incident. There was another Seanus – DaveO – ab156 tangle. All of it was fairly light, slow and not reckless contacts, so no penalties.

After the chicane, RussG re-entered the track and kept drifting from right to left into the path of Seanus, spinning him into the barriers – restrictor penalty for next round for reckless re-entry causing an accident.

Season Podium
1. Kcender87, 204  (Kcender and Phil swap places for the lead, with nothing in it)
2. Phil.8, 200
3. Matthew, 176

This will be at a GzeroD mod - Monza without the 1st chicane. Not 100% historically accurate, but what the heck, more fun.
MOD DOWNLOAD - this is a mod to AC's Monza, just to remove the chicane. It doesn't alter the base AC track though. Just unzip it into your tracks folder.

38 laps. It's going to be in the Italian heat, 30 degrees.

Phil puts in a big win to regain the championship lead.

Racing general / Sim racing aches and pains
« on: May 31, 2018, 04:28:40 PM »
The ball of my right foot has been a little sore for a while, and the other night I realised the soreness was exactly where I was pressing the pedals with my foot. So I'm going to try racing with light-soled shoes instead of socks.

I've never really had any wrist, shoulder or arm issues though through racing.

What physical toll is sim racing taking on you?

Seanus has fixed the impact engine damage, so you will need to apply this patch to your cars: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1c57gW2312cEI77QPYG9LbVkW4d30XB-Y/view
The practice server has been updated, so check your checksums there.

38 laps at Österreichring 70's [TRACK DOWNLOAD]

This round we're back to the usual 1.5x fuel rate and 1.7x tyre wear.

Matthew and Kcender emerge from an intense battle to the line to take 1 and 2 on the podium with Jeremy a little way back in 3rd.

Congratulations to Matthew on pole and the win.

None. Very few contacts at all the whole race.

Season Podium
With Matthew and Kcender finishing 1 and 2, and previous season leader Phil finishing 4th, Matthew and Kcender are now tied for the season lead.
1. Kcender87 + Matthew, 121
2. Phil.8, 117
3. Jeremy, 96

The halfway point of the season takes us to the big one: The Nordschleife (Endurance Cup layout).
The 1975 grand prix was won by the Argentinian Carlos Reutemann in a Brabham.
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.
The race will only be 7 laps (so I may have to adjust fuel and tyre wear after some testing - perhaps make them just 1x for this race). If anyone has any thoughts on pit stops in a 7 lap race, shoot. It would probably be best to not require a pit stop - but we'll have to see if tyres can last the full distance without a stop, even at 1x.
Also, I'll make all of practice a qualifying session, so we can actually get more than 1 qualifying lap in.

Phil follows up last week's win with another, leading half the race from Kcender, who lost the race lead after apparently opting to put in a big fuel load at his stop.

Congratulations to Kcender on pole and to Phil.8 for the race win.

I have to call the start accident a racing incident: Matthew was faster than Russ in front of him, and at the same time, Mael got the jump on KCender who bogged down in front of him, and had to go around. As a result of that, Mael and Matthew tangled wheels in a side-to-side impact, that was probably difficult to avoid on a starting grid three cars wide.

Season Podium
Phil manages to pull clear of Kcender to take the championship lead.
1. Phil.8, 90
2. Kcender87, 83
3. Matthew111, 76

43 laps.
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.

The weather is 19 degrees - slightly cooler than the previous race.

The 1975 British Grand Prix was a wet affair, won by Emerson Fittipaldi in a McLaren.

Some interesting history:
From the start – in which a lights system was being used for the first time in any Grand Prix, replacing the traditional national flag – Carlos Pace led from Pryce. Following the hail storm, only six cars were running at the end.

Phil wins the second race of the season, leading from pole to the end, running a long H, Short S pit strategy. Last week's winner Kcender finished 4th.

Congratulations to Phil.8 on pole and the race win.

None. Seanus and Keith had a tangling of wheels which caused a few collisions, but it looked pretty innocent and unavoidable.

Car: Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.0
Track: Osterreichring 70's: DOWNLOAD (extract with 7zip).

We're testing this track for Tuesday night season - so bash the barriers and try a pit stop :)

Can you please download the "final" car patch HERE.
This has Seanus' pit stop repair time fixes.

I've updated the practice server with this patch, and it will now kick you for checksum errors if you don't have the latest car patch. Please check that your car is OK before the Tuesday race.

French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard [LINK]

31 laps at the Blancpain layout.

France was host to the 9th round of the season, and it was Lauda on pole ahead of Scheckter and Hunt. The top three maintained their starting positions into the first corner. In the early laps, Regazzoni was on a charge, and got up to second on the sixth lap but his engine blew up and he had to retire. Scheckter soon faded away, giving Hunt second. That was how it ended, with Lauda winning to take a large championship lead, Hunt finishing second and Mass third.
