Re-live the 1966 Cam-Am Series.
« on: July 30, 2017, 11:22:55 AM »
Lola T70 &  McLaren M1B Re-lives the 1966 Cam-Am Series.

Thanks to Bacchulum for finding the mod. Season inspired by Humper's urgent request.
Thanks to GzeroD for the "fixes" in the MacLaren mod.






Format
We will follow the 1966 CanAm Series tracks, where possible. You never know, someone may model up the Las Vegas Stardust Raceway.


So a 5 round season allowing us to enjoy this new very good mod and wind down to the end of the year with a roaring pre-Xmas Season "AC Legends Pack 8 cars for AC".
The tracks will need our track pundit, Rooshooter, to assist in quality/versions.

Two races per round: race 1 about 15 mins after qualifying, race 2 will be ~2 to 3 times race 1, with the starting order set by the order of race 1 fastest lap times. Race 2 will have  the "Restrictor" set dependant on race 1 positions.

Balancing the field
As above, setting the restrictor from the race 1 warm-up will allow the car/driver capabilities to be tightly aligned.

Schedule
R1: Sep 7, Mont - Tremblant Download, 5 laps + 22 laps
R2: Sep 14, Bridgehampton Download, 8 laps + 20 laps

Baskerville Historics Break

R3: Sep 28, Mosport Download, 6 laps + 18 laps
R4: Oct 5, Laguna Sega Download, 8 laps + 18 laps
R5: Oct 12, Riverside Download, 8 laps + 20 laps
R6: Oct 19, Stardust Grand Prix Download, Laps TBC
Points
As per the "Phil.8 system".

Track testing and car familiarisation will be Thursday 24th and the 31st August. 

Just to whet your appetite...

I'm in for sure. I'll be away for round 1 though.

Have to strike while the iron is hot, we all enjoyed the car/mod and if you can use your acumen on the tracks, it will be a good season, I believe.

I found an AC Legends McLaren M1B on my install. :o
Not sure if it came in the November series download or it was already there.
My point is, it's comparable to the Lola! 8)
It could add a little bit of variety. ;)

I also was going to mention it, it is on par with Lola T70 just a bit faster.
