That's crap, Simo'. Sorry.

About the race: it's going to be slippery. It was already a little soapy at 100% on the server on softs. I am looking forward to the  97%, cold medium tires start. ;)
I have been starting the practice session at 97% grip. By the time the race starts, the grip should be 98 point something percent. Cold tyres are slippery. Tracks rubber up. That's racing.

I like the slippery track. Its suppose to feel scarily fast.

I put a positive spin on that by interpreting it to be because they REALLY didn't want to mention iRacing...

Ranking system for both skill and safety similar to iRacing (he mentions the latest GranTurismo's one). They hired the guy behind Minorating for this

Car feels a bit more livelier at Donington Park  :)

Had some good racing. Even managed to stay close to Phil and Grat in the first race but they handled the ballast better than me in race 2. The rear tires kept overheated early in race 2 which made the first and last corner particular difficult. It felt as the additional weight messed with my chosen brake bias.  But at least it gave me a fun battle with Russ  ;D

How long do we want the races to be?
5 laps is ~16m40s while 7 laps is ~23m20s.
I think 11 laps will be too much.

Since 1 lap without crashing is an achievement for me I would say 5 laps is good. The gaps between drivers would be too large after 5 laps.

BTW any idea how much fuel needed by the Nissan per lap?

Don't leave me hanging here Wally! Still want to race even though I share Bacchulum's opinion of the red cars.

Yeah, I just thanked G0D personally for giving me my new favourite car. ;D 8)

And new favourite track.

PS The cars would be great for oval racing    :)

100% grip, 0% damage, to make life easier.

Good, means I can get some revenge on Grat without damaging my car. I'm coming to get you GRAT!!   :P

(PS: Can you slow down a bit? Revenge is a bit difficult if you half a lap ahead)

Maybe it's just like Mael and myself.
I see him race cleanly with others, I've raced cleanly with yourself amongst others, but whenever we're near each other there seems to be contact.
Who knows why. :-\ :-X

Can't be my fault  ;D

In all seriousness, I knew I was taking a huge risk with the pass on the last corner and that it would likely end in tears. But I also took into account that the contact would be at low speed and that both of us were unlikely to loose any positions. So sort of contact on purpose with a faint hope of it maybe working. In general I'm not against contact as long as all drivers involve stays on the track, it is part of tin top racing (big no no if open wheel cars).

 I enjoy racing against Bacchulum,  always makes you work for a pass. The Thursday contacts i blame on the cars, barely in control when going in a straight line  :o

Congrads  to Kcender, being to most consistent in 21% of entered races are almost GB like  ;D

Had some good racing, Matthew gave me a lesson in defensive driving in race 1,  Russ doing the same in race 3, couple of great moves Russ. Race 3 ended with a hail mary dive at the last corner to pass Bacchulum, unfortunately the contact with Bacchulum was a bit too hard to make it a fair pass so had to let him take the position back  :P   Race 2 ended in a temper tantrum quit to the pits, felt that Grat pushed me off the road, not that it would have mattered as AC disconnected not long after.

Overall not a good race for Maki Engineering, onward to season 21 Freezer!

Good point, didn't think about the difference of tracks, also, it kinda takes the fun out of driving these beasts. Maybe a small amount of ballast without restriction?

You can also add a bit more fuel for the same effect although it may not make them easier to drive as the restriction does.
