Unfortunately, I will be away for the next 2 weeks ....

Have fun guys ...

Half a good night for me.

Didn't get the best out of qually, but started 5th. Pretty happy with that.

Race 1: Got away running in 4th due to Kcender having a bad start. After a few laps Kcender caught me and I figured I shouldn't fight too hard for the place. As Kc went past I still had a nice gap to Bacchulum but then Kc was so slow he backed me up into Bacchulum who then had a good run and slipstream out of the last turn and breezed past me down the straight. From then it was really tight stuff with most laps only separating Bacchulum and me by hundreths. Finished 6th which I was happy with.

Race 2: With the grid shuffle I started behind Keith and from the start I was stuck behind him. I was up the inside, up the outside but always having to pull out of the move to avoid a crash. I could see Bacchulum disappearing into the distance in front of us with this battle going on.
After some laps of this, Keith got it loose in the left right combination at the end of the lap while I had a smooth run through it. Somehow Keith managed to keep it on the track and in the right turn I had to steer left to avoid running into him. I clipped the wall which I thought was just a brush, but it completely wrecked the car with the wheel out by 90 degrees. Pitted to fix the car. Basically race over   :(

Bring on the next race ....

OK, I got 75-86 with 16 cars in a storm. Haven't reduced any video settings.

Got my fps up to 75 solo, using the resolution scaling set to 73. (1300 in a storm)
My old eyes couldn't tell the difference :o, so there's a permanent, new setting.
How do you display the fps?

Not a bad night racing over all. If any one has the first couple of laps on video I would like to see what I did.
Hi Able,
Not much you did wrong, but here are the replays  :)
You just need 7zip to unzip them ...

Q: Never got it quite right but managed 6th so not bad.

R1: Got a bit of a run down the inside of Mael to T4 but couldn't make it stick and came out slow, then watched 3 cars drive by. Settled in behind Wally.
About lap 3 Wally went off at T1. I kept on track, then saw Wally coming back on so I took to the sand on the inside of T2. I couldn't keep it tight enough to avoid a touch, which wasn't too bad, but then I couldn't pull it up for the next turn ... another 3 cars drive by  ::)
About lap 5 I came around the fast left hander before the hairpin and Jeremy was off track. He came back on and sat in the middle of the track so I tried to place myself around the outside of the hairpin. We touched, I went off, Jeremy spun, Jeremy disconnected ....
With a few laps to go, Wally and I were dragging down the straight, Wally slightly ahead, I thought I kept it tight on the inside but we touched and Wally had an off. Sorry Wally.
With 2 laps to go, realised I only had about 1.5 laps worth of fuel so had to back off massively and let Freezer and Wally past.
After all that was pretty happy with P9  ;D

R2: Started P12. At T4 AbleArcher and Simone had a bump which allowed me the chance to push up the outside of AbleArcher to T4 - my idea to make AA take a narrow line into T4 and I could do cross back to the inside, but AA kept moving across on me and pushed me off track. Not too bad, but as I was rejoining, Seanus tagged me (not his fault) sending me further off and I rejoined a distant last.
Gained some places with others misfortune as they went off  ;D Had some great racing with Rob until he made a mistake.
Eventually caught AbleArcher and had some great racing trying to pin a move on him, then he made a mistake and I was through  ;D Then I made a mistake and he was through  :(
Then AA had an off at the fast left hander before the hairpin so I tried to place myself on the outside of the hairpin. We never touched, but it was a bad place to be because I went off and watched 3 cars drive by  >:(

All in all, I had a great night  ;D ;D

Hey Phil,
we since found that that RaceDepartment link is undrivable, so whatever version you had is likely the one you want.
Just check that the link you have is the version of the track you want .....


Well, it doesn't help watching this thing again. I was pissed off because, during the race I thought it was you, Russ, running into me at that sharp right hander before...and then just going off. The second incident was more difficult to judge. I trust Wally's judgement on this enough...so, yeah, what can I say...
In the end being run into twice there within a few laps spoiled it enough for me to hit the exit button.
Hi killa,
Yeah, we both got taken out at the sharp right hander.
I would probably call the one where we went off a racing incident. I just didn't like being handed the blame.

Let's all just try our best to avoid incidents in the first place and have some good racing   :)

FYI, the Porsche is the greatest car in all of AC. Just so you know.

Wally your soooo funny - you make me laff  ;D ;D ;D

I'm glad to hear that Bueller came to like the car. That's a common story, where people aren't that keen on a car to start with, but it grows on them. Keep that in mind for future seasons ;)

My first race was a shocker because I tried a setup experiment, where I made the rear cambers as unoptimal as the front cambers to blanace the car, using the Camber Extravaganza app. I knew you could never get the front cambers to their sweet spot, so I tried to make the rear cambers equally bad to balance front and rear grip from camber. Well, that didn't work. The car was really unstable while cornering and badly prone to snap oversteer, so race 1was just hard work.

I reverted to my Queensland setup for the next races and that was much better. I still spent most of my time towards the rear of the field, but had some really good racing with Bueller pressuring me, and also me chasing AbleArcher who was also under pressure from ab156 but didn't crack. Made it hard work but a lot of good racing.

For Killagorilla, have you watched the replays? I haven't myself, and you may be right or you may be wrong, but my point is to make sure you have at least watched the replays before you make judgements.

Yes, I watched the replay from all perspectives. Jeremy redressed/gave me time to get my car straight again. Russ went just into my side turning me around. Russ, you can have that, I'll go harder next time. During the race I actually thought he went into me a couple of turns before, but that was Jeremy. That was the reason for my comments over the radio...I really do try hard to avoid that. I normally don't say anything in cases when someone runs into me, but I get pissed off if it happens multiple times. I understand they were battling for position behind me and that makes it more difficult...anyway, try to forget this thing

killa, I'm not sure what replay you watched but I have watched the replay from all angles and my take is not the same.

Sequence of events (as I see it) ...
  • I made a clean pass on Jeremy at turn 1.
  • I caught killa which then let Jeremy close in on both of us.
  • Jeremy dive bombs at the tight right going past me and smashing into the back of killa.
  • You say Jeremy redressed but he just couldn't get going any quicker. My experience is that Jeremy never redresses.
  • We went for a drag down to the next left hander.
  • You moved to the inside so I took the outside.
  • At the turn I avoided a crash by leaving my turn in late when you braked too late and shot across in front of me.
  • I cut back to the inside and we started the drag out of that turn.
  • I held my line and you moved left and bumped into me.
  • My car got unsettled by the bump.
  • My car went a bit to the right while I was fighting to regain control.
  • It would still have been OK but you once again moved left and we touched again and went off.
So ... I didn't see the need for me to redress something that wasn't my fault.

Happy to discuss.

Hi Wally,

Hi Wally,

Race 2
Russ had a moment on a ripple strip and oversteered into Jeremy – racing incident.

Hi Wally,
No mention that I was only on the ripple strip because Jeremy hit me up the arse in the middle of the previous turn which let Kcender breeze through into 2nd place???
Not placing blame here but people aren't hearing the full story. Replay shows that Jeremy released the brakes and hit me when he wasn't braking when he should have been, put me sideways and I ended up on the ripple strip. Then I was trying to accelerate not to lose another place ....

R1 was OK. Jeremy got past at T1 with the inside line. Then I was backed up into Matthew and was fighting Matthew with the slipstream for the whole race.
R2 After the incident with Jeremy, I ran into the wall at the entry to the back straight. Not sure why as I checked the replay to see if I braked too late and I don't think I did but still I hit the wall (my bad) ... After that the car had no straight line speed. Later I got part car beside Mael on the straight with part of my tyres inside the double yellow line. I held my line but Mael moved left and bumped me off track .... oh well ....
R3 Starting at the back. Was going good until Matthew and Kcender got together in the chicane. I ended up fighting with Matthew and made a pass.  I'm not sure about the next bit but came together with Matthew as he was making a pass on me out of T1. We bumped, I went into the wall and car was wrecked ....

Well I didn't pick that one .....
