S19R1: Silverstone GP
« on: October 11, 2017, 11:26:15 PM »
Just a reminder that the first S19 round is next Tuesday.
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.


Each car must do a CPS for tyres. I also changed my mind about the tyre warmers - there will be NO tyre warmers. It makes the starts more exciting, needing more caution.


We will do a practice rolling start just this round. LMP1's will stay in 2nd gear. We'll proceed around the track in single file, reforming into side by side double file onto the straight, as per our starting positions on the grid. The race leader goes when he crosses the start line.


One thing we learned from the practice race is that the LMP1's need to be careful when pulling back onto the racing line after passing a GT3. Don't block the GT3's braking room into the next corner, or otherwise cut them off.


Weather: Following the FIA WEC calendar, the Silverstone round is in April, when the weather is 14°. Wind 32 kph S.

Server's up.
If I don't have a car selection yet for someone, I've given them the Nissan GT3 for now.

You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.

I also changed my mind about the tyre warmers - there will be NO tyre warmers. It makes the starts more exciting, needing more caution.

I've figured out my ambition for this season. I will deem my race a success if Grat laps me only once!     ;D

Looking at the lap graph's, it looks like you used boost as well. :-\
So yeah, you're in trouble. :( :P

Am I getting that right, the race starts for each driver when crossing the start-finish line - no acceleration and overtaking before that?!
Cheers

No overtaking before the start line. You can accelerate though. Because it's a timed 1 hr race, the race time will actually start when the red lights go out and we start our formation lap (as AC doesn't properly support rolling starts).
