Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Re: Fun run Feb 19 - a bunch of cars at Brands Hatch« on: February 20, 2019, 06:46:47 PM »
Was good to race after a couple of months off. I didn't try the Abarth but I enjoyed driving the the Nissan most of all those I tried.
The Nissan is a good car, would usually be my selection but the BMW's handling was too enticing, especially the M1. Plus it appeared a bit slow, hope it was not the driver

I think it was my most important quali lap yet!
Got one lap in which placed me in front of Killa on the grid, which helped me get to T1 before him and gave me a good result for race 1, 2 and 3. Killa might have been on the same pace as me if he didn't have a angry swarm of GT4 behind him, but with him kept busy it was a comfortable run for me (needed Bacchulum for some company).
Interesting season Wally, enjoyed it and with full server it would have been a classic. (on that point, if people do practice laps please do it online. A busy practice server would help us get some more drivers!)

After a number of seasons with rather tricky cars I call for street car, for example BMW M1. easy to drive with TC for anyone who prefers it. Would also represent a realistic presentation of states of tune according to the owners financial acumen.

I believe I could have, but I missed 2 rounds, so I'm still at the start.
I'm sure an envelope full of cash posted to Wally can sort it out

Fun if at times a bit lonely race. For race 1 I just concentrated to get consistent pace and a good result for a change, helped by Bird having gotten a case of Bird-flu .
Race 2 it quickly became apparent that Bird meant business and there was no way of competing with him, waited for AB who got delayed at the start by Killa to have a good race.
Race 3 went for an alternative strategy to keep it interesting, with only two 911 R's in the field it can be a bit lonely. An early start combined with a pit drive through should be close with Monza''s short pitlane. I was also hoping Killa would get ahead of AB again to delay him and make it a close race. However AB got away clean while I lost about 3 seconds in the first two laps through over-driving on cold tires. (The first lap's time is a bit weird since the clock only start when the lights go out, a false PB in my case). Luckily for me Ab touched the grass on the last lap while going for a PB laptime otherwise I would not have caught up with him! Again the Bird drove without fault for a good win, your laptime consistency in race 2 and three was impressive Bird!
ps. The loneliest award in race 2 for me can't be right? The gap between me and AB was always close.

Otherwise there was some good close racing. Race 2 went just bad for me...expensive night.
lol Yeah. I do like a bit of contact in tin-top cars. Usual I judge that if the other driver stays on the black stuff then it was a fair pass. But in the case of race 2 though I should probably give the position back before Wally gives me a huge fine. But somehow the yield to give the position back turned into a disaster! Next time I'll yell out before slowing down
I not looking forward to seeing the damage bill, suspect there is no 911 R keys waiting for me.

I hope it works in future ...Awesome, I've only got $66 damage fee. I thought it'll be worse...so I guess wall hits don't really count?No, wall hits don't count. It's mainly to discourage you from hitting another car only.
Maybe file an insurance claim against the offending party? Wally can deduct the amount from their account

Enjoyed the two race before the solar batteries got a bit low!
Here is my 2cents. The difference in car speeds were too much. Not even GB would have been competitive in the boxter. I would suggest using the same car but in different states of tune (by modifying restrictor & ballast). For the cheapskates a backyard mechanic tune (100% restrictor & 100kg ballast) while the golden spoon drivers can get their car tuned by the "AC Schnitzer" tuning house (or any-other ones goole suggest as the best tuning house).
Nice driving Bueller!

Next Tuesday! It's not a real serious season, but more a test of the car dealer system, looking for bugs, seeing how it works out moneywise, etc.
If it goes on the Tuesday statistics page then it serious.
BTW: Waiting for Dave O's 200th Tuesday race!
