Good night for me being up the front for once!  I didn't quite get it together in qualifying with traffic etc so started 4th.
I usually do okay on cold tyres and managed to by Joe and Phil in the early laps of race one.  From there it was just a case
of trying to be super consistent which I was able to do to the end for my first win in quite a while.
Race to after the grid swap again saw me in fourth.  This time however I spent the first half of the race battling with Joe and in
doing so saw Kcender and Phil getting away up front.  After a few position swaps with Joe I eventually pulled a very small gap.
Unfortunately not long after I had a small spin and oddly hit the rear camera button I this was happening which saw me looking out
the back and lost all control.  Got going again in 7th behind Mael and chased him all the way home.
All up pretty good to have some speed and crack my 300th race here at XGN.

p.s. I will be away next week . . . good luck!

Speak for yourself.
For about a year I kept going back to nKP for my wet weather fix. 8)

Yeah, I could have kept driving nKPRO too

You guys are so old school  8) AC was the current sim when I started sim racing so it's pretty much all I've ever played.
Slightly off topic, but speaking of old school, have a look at this from Goodwood.

For me the wet weather, night racing etc options are what make it interesting.  Otherwise I would just stay with AC.
Downloaded it last night, so will start testing... :)

dumb Q from a not so newbie, but do we need to d/l these skins from somewhere for the game to work or is there a zip file somewhere with everything on it?

Also where do you find the templates...?

cheers,
Bradc.
Skin templates are in - assettocorsa/sdk/dev/skin_templates.

thanks, which model Porsche is it as I grabbed the 911 RSR however it looks totally different to the ones others have used... ???
Make sure it's the Carrera RSR 3.0.
pp_porsche_911_carrera_rsr folder to be precise!!

After struggling to finish a lap in practice, i actually had very few spins in the races thanks mainly to Mael's last minute suspension tip.
Race 1 saw me get up to p5 when a throttle problem kicked in for a few laps and cost me a few spots.
Something i have never seen before, was bacchulum making an error and me getting past!!!
Race 2 saw me chasing Joe to the end for a rare 2nd and good start to the season.
So Mael's tip wasn't a double bluff????
You'll never know . :)

Thanks all . . .

Porsche feels a lot more lively and precise for me.  GT40 a bit sluggish.

Race Videos / Re: Lola T70 at Le Mans
« on: August 27, 2018, 09:44:46 AM »
     

Time is precious on the full 24-Hour circuit, so Le Mans Classic practice/qualifying sessions are short and sweet. You don’t have many chances at finding a clear lap - in truth if you’re sharing a car you each have time for an out-lap and two fliers to post your time. Given it’s most likely been two years since the majority of drivers competing at LMC drivers have driven the circuit, its ultra-high-speed nature makes it a formidable challenge.

The T70 is a monster around La Sarthe. We quickly find a taller fifth gear is required, as it’s happily butting into the rev limiter three times along the Mulsanne and once on the run to Indianapolis. A look at the gearing chart shows this to be a smidge under 180mph. Gulp.

The footage you see here is from qualifying. It was the second of two flying laps and hopefully gives you some idea of how mighty these Group 5 machines are, and how magnificent the 24-Hour circuit is in a car blessed with more grunt than mechanical grip. Despite my ugly stab at second gear into the last chicane, the resulting 4min 13sec lap was good enough for pole, ahead of - yep, you guessed it - two more Mk3Bs. Indeed, there were six of them in the top-10, split by the one-off Duckhams Ford, Carlos Monteverde’s Ferrari 512 M and a brace of Chevron B19s.

Sadly, we would go on to retire the car midway through the first race, but even driving those few qualifying laps was a truly unforgettable experience. One that, for a few short laps, transported me to the heart of possibly the most iconic era of endurance racing: one celebrated to this day and defined by beautiful, bellowing and brutally fast machines such as the T70. Life - and historic racing - doesn’t get much better.         
Hey Rooshooter, I think we need a bit a bio on your racing history here......... seriously impressed by that video!!!
LOL Freezer, I should have credited Dicky Meaden to the comments, anyway ,  gave me a big ego trip for a moment , that anybody would think it was me at the wheel of this monster ;D ;D ;D.
Ah...... didn't see the "Quote from Dickie Meaden".    You should have taken the credit . . :):)
