43 laps.
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.

The weather is 19 degrees - slightly cooler than the previous race.

The 1975 British Grand Prix was a wet affair, won by Emerson Fittipaldi in a McLaren.

Some interesting history:
From the start – in which a lights system was being used for the first time in any Grand Prix, replacing the traditional national flag – Carlos Pace led from Pryce. Following the hail storm, only six cars were running at the end.

Congratulations to Phil.8 on pole and the race win.

Penalties
None. Seanus and Keith had a tangling of wheels which caused a few collisions, but it looked pretty innocent and unavoidable.

Car: Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.0
Track: Osterreichring 70's: DOWNLOAD (extract with 7zip).

We're testing this track for Tuesday night season - so bash the barriers and try a pit stop :)

Can you please download the "final" car patch HERE.
This has Seanus' pit stop repair time fixes.

I've updated the practice server with this patch, and it will now kick you for checksum errors if you don't have the latest car patch. Please check that your car is OK before the Tuesday race.

French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard [LINK]

31 laps at the Blancpain layout.

France was host to the 9th round of the season, and it was Lauda on pole ahead of Scheckter and Hunt. The top three maintained their starting positions into the first corner. In the early laps, Regazzoni was on a charge, and got up to second on the sixth lap but his engine blew up and he had to retire. Scheckter soon faded away, giving Hunt second. That was how it ended, with Lauda winning to take a large championship lead, Hunt finishing second and Mass third.

Hi gents,

Can everybody please download the new mandatory PLP app (1.27) from this thread and unzip it into your Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa folder, replacing any existing files.

What this does is read the number of track limit warnings from the server name, if present (e.g. you'll notice the practice server now has "P6" on the end of its name, to set the number of warnings to 6). If a "Pn" isn't present at the end of the server name, it defaults to whatever you've set in PLP.ini.

This allows me to set the number of warnings per season without you having to fiddle around editing files yourself.

May 8: Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort [OSRW Pit Mod]

37 laps.

Weather: cold. As per the practice server.

The first race in the second half of the season took place in the Netherlands, and pole went to Lauda as usual, with teammate Regazzoni alongside, and Hunt's Hesketh third. The race started on a damp track and Lauda took the lead, with Scheckter up to second ahead of Regazzoni. The order was unchanged until the drivers had to pit for dry tyres. Hunt and Jarier pitted early, and their gamble paid off as they were first and second, with Lauda, Scheckter and Regazzoni third, fourth and fifth respectively. Lauda passed Jarier for second midway through the race, and started closing on Hunt. Jarier almost immediately retired with a tyre failure, and Scheckter who inherited third had his engine blow up with just 12 laps left. Hunt held off Lauda to take his first career win, with Regazzoni completing the podium.

FINAL PLP REMINDER
You need to edit your ...\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\apps\python\PitLanePenalty\PLP.ini file with a text editor and change:

TOTAL_WARNINGS=6

You'll get penalised on your 7th cut.

News / New Tuesday season - 1975 Formula 1
« on: May 02, 2018, 08:09:23 PM »


A new Tuesday night season is starting May 8, where we'll be racing 1975 formula 1 cars at selected tracks from the 1975 season, with hour long races with pit stops.

You can read about the season here.

Important PLP change
For this race (and the upcoming season), I'll double the number of warnings before you get penalised for disrespecting track limits, due to the length of the races.

You need to edit your ...\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\apps\python\PitLanePenalty\PLP.ini file with a text editor and change:

TOTAL_WARNINGS=6

You'll get penalised on your 7th cut.

Same track, different era cars...

TRACK: Imola with the OSRW PIT MOD (so we can get more of each car on the prac server).

35 lap race (1 hour). No refuelling but change tyres as often as you like.
I'll probably have tyre rate at 1.5x again, as real life races were around about the 1.5 hr mark (will do a little more testing).
"Refuelling during races first took place in Formula One in 15th August 1982". So... no refuelling, and fuel rate at 1x.

CARS DOWNLOAD LINK (914MB)
Unzip (e.g. with 7-zip) and extract to .../content/cars.
or if you've already downloaded the mod, here is an UPDATE PATCH to extract over your existing files.

You can choose any car you like.
