Car
The stock Osella with its 40 litre tank can handle 4 laps of the Green Hell. There's no need to use a mod. We'll be using the stock Osella.

Track
Here's a download link to the track, if you don't already have it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0bnue09atzqpsuk/Nordschleife.7z

It's a 7z file; you may need 7-zip to decompress it.

We are doing the Tourist layout. To install this layout, you unzip the track into the location, and then copy the contents of the tracks\Nordschleife\Extras\Tourist ver (replace files in track root) folder into the tracks\Nordschleife folder, replacing the files.

Race Details
There will be 2 races of 4 laps with a short break. For qualifying, because the track is so long, qually will start at 8:30pm Eastern (still on daylight savings time), and run all the way through to 9:10pm, when race 1 will start.

Second race will be a full reverse grid.

The first race will have the usual password.

I'm thinking we can use this mod which gives the Osella a bigger fuel tank (100's of litres), to handle the Green Hell.

Details to come...
You can put me down for this one, nice no pressure run in "Green Hell",  hopefully like Sandman Slim!

ps you guys, with a no pressure week, your always welcome to come "Mercedes"ing with us on Thursday at Bremgarten GP '54 http://www.xgn.com.au/index.php?topic=199.0

LOL, you'll have to wait and see. Maybe it will be in 100% rain.

Or should I take the next day off for a full length VLN Nordschleiffe 24hour race?
(only about 200 laps or so.... ;D)

Hhhmmm. :-\
Just tried to join my own server and couldn't, due to an 'exception'.
The car name doesn't show up in the server list either, this may be the cause......

Have you tried it online yet Wally?

No, I haven't, to be honest. I'll give it a try.

I put our server up with the modded Osella at Aviano, and I could join it just now. See if you can join that server.
Are you sure you only had one car selected in your server setup?

That'll do it. I'll put the Nords up on the server, and you can tell me some lap times.

9m06s first lap out, but that's 2 wheels on the grass onto Döttinger Höhe, so a couple of sec lost there.
8mXXs possible, I think.
You seem to have the Tilke-drome attached, which adds 2mins to the Tourist lap.
(I don't like the GP part, it's like a barcode on a van Gogh :-X)

Is the tourist circuit the Nordschleife without the nurburgring race track? Maybe we can just do the tourist circuit then. That's about 7 mins, right? I'm thinking of two 30 min races (to regroup the field). Might do 2 x 5 laps.

Similar, first lap out, I did a 7m15s on Tourist.
The grid kind of goes around a corner, but the start doesn't really matter on a 22km course. ;)
The first real overtaking point is 3k's in, but there's about ten in the lap. ;D

OK, let's do the Tourist layout. I'll update the first post with race details. It's a great ride in the Osella.
