Real Life Motorsport / Can-Am
« on: January 18, 2018, 06:16:59 PM »
I found an excellent doco covering the history of Can-Am.
Some of the extremes even surprised me (9+l V8 in a 690kg car, ON CROSS-PLIES!!!)
It even has insights from the great innovator himself, Jim Hall.

If you enjoy pre-regulation racing (well, almost), check it out. 8)

Real Life Motorsport / RIP Dan Gurney
« on: January 15, 2018, 02:34:21 PM »
 :'( :'(

All American Racers, his wife Evi and the Gurney family issued the following statement:

"With one last smile on his handsome face, Dan drove off into the unknown just before noon today, January 14, 2018. In deepest sorrow, with gratitude in our hearts for the love and joy you have given us during your time on this earth, we say 'Godspeed.'

"...Smell the sea and feel the sky,

Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic..."

Mod Cars / RaceSimStudio Formula Cars
« on: September 10, 2017, 10:32:22 AM »

But if you like Formula cars, they do a bloody good job.

I've got the F2, F4 and Formula79 and they're all excellent.
I haven't bothered with the Formula Hybrid as I feel I have enough modern F1 cars through various other mods and AC itself.
It's pay what you want but the minimum is 3.99 euro, or a little over $6.

This just about completes my full-house of formula cars, except the very rare Formula 5000.....

Racing general / Want a Porsche 917?

The very first Can-Am variant!
It goes up for auction later this month at RM Sotheby’s with an estimate of between £3.9-4.6 million. Bargain! 8)

Mod Cars / McLaren MP4/4
« on: January 30, 2017, 04:14:52 PM »
I've only done a handful of laps but nothing felt out of place and I was left with a big smile on me dial. ;D ;D
Had to be real careful until the tyres got up to pressure.


Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Aleph Null Ltd Expands
« on: January 10, 2017, 01:11:19 AM »
Due to increased investment from our major sponsor, Man Cave Print & Laser, Aleph Null Ltd has expanded to include a sister team.
This team will be named Continuum Racing and will be headed by long time Aleph Null driver, Chap.
He will be joined by new signing, Doobs.

Chap will be replaced in Aleph Null by MG who will race along side team founder, Bacchulum.

We are currently discussing livery options with the authorities but would like to run all cars identical.

There's no comment at the moment but there may be further developments.......

Assetto Corsa / Temporary Absence
« on: January 05, 2017, 12:41:26 PM »
Hey guys, my PC has some issues atm so I can't go online.
Hopefully I'll be back soon but until then I'll be unavailable. :(

General Discussion / Video Conversion Guru Needed
« on: September 22, 2016, 06:20:51 PM »
I have a .ISO 'disc image' of some old F5000 races but I haven't worked out how to see them yet.
I tried a free conversion app a while a go but all I got was the menu screen, while the audio went through the races. (radio only :()
I don't want to buy something just for one file, so I was wondering if there was anybody who could convert this file into something I could watch. ???
(plus I'm a bit stupid at these things)
Obviously, willing to share the results with everybody interested in F5000.
(please let there be one person who can help)

Real Life Motorsport / Formula Thunder 5000
« on: April 22, 2016, 02:04:28 PM »
Formula 5000 is coming back!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D

"The brainchild of historic Formula 5000 racer Chris Lambden, the proposed category has been dubbed Formula Thunder 5000.
It will utilise a Swift-designed, Australian-built evolution of a chassis originally created for Formula Nippon, fitted with a locally developed 5.0 litre Ford Coyote based V8 engine.
A prototype car is currently in the final stage of build at Borland Racing Developments’ workshop in Melbourne ahead of initial track testing.
Working on the project for almost two years, Lambden hopes that today’s public launch will draw firm orders for cars, which are expected to cost around $240,000 each.
The category’s centrepiece will likely be a seven-round Tasman Series across New Zealand and Australia each December/January."


Mod Cars / Formula Corsa FF1 2015
« on: January 24, 2015, 10:38:25 AM »
From the creators of FC2 (GP2 mod) comes Formula Fantasy 1 (guess which series :-X):
Car models are to the 2015 rules (as yet unreleased cars) with 2014 skins.
Makes full use of DRS and ERS (although I haven't tried the ERS function yet).
Quality is Formula Corsa standard, excellent. 8)

Assetto Corsa / Lick Louise Challenge

Assetto Corsa / Steam Expert Required
« on: July 24, 2014, 06:56:48 PM »
Can I change the location of my Assetto Corsa folder?
I need to move it onto a different drive with more space but I don't want to screw it up, and Steam and I have never got along.

I thought I'd open a thread for Steam questions, as opposed to AC, for noobs like me. :-[

Real Life Motorsport / The Racers Edge
« on: February 14, 2014, 08:12:18 PM »
This is a great show by Peter Windsor about all things F1, past and present.
Low budget but some very knowledgable guests such as Craig Scarborough (technical) and Rob Wilson (driver coach).
Feeds and audio quality sometimes 'vary' but it has improved since F1Racing mag came on board.
It makes a nice change from the commercial point of view.
