No problems Bruce, I'd rather you guys have some fun.

Anyway I have a VERY modest version of the real thing that I can take out any time I want. ;)

The server could be left as is Bruce, all it means is I cannot select the Alpha to race with, I prefer
a mixed grid and the Alpha appears to be about 2 seconds per lap slower than the Caterham.

Let's leave it at one change this season and leave it with the Caterham
Please play,  you will find a race config.

I've asked the Teamspeak admins to take a look.

CONGRATULATIONS DENIS/rooshooter/lenore9!


A well deserved win, you were cool, calm and consistent.  From the start to finish.

Looks like there will be much closer racing now with advantage of ballast and it appears to be easy to assess and last night's weights seem to close to what is needed.

(For some reason sTracker put Wally in first place for "rooshooter's big race", I have added time to Wally, if the rest of the field is also out, please let Phil or myself know and it will be corrected).

I must admit the longer 'race' is better in my view, I finally got some pace in race 2, not enough to get near rooshooter, but was finally confy :)

Anyone have any ideas as to why I keep dropping out.
Just did 2 x 20 lap races off-line, using the same track and same mod and no problems, but 2 weeks in a row now keep losing connection.
Don't think its a connection issue cos race online in rFactor and dont get drop-outs.
Have been getting an error message as it drops out, but disappears too quickly to read, although last night think I read "runtime error and acs.exe" before it disappeared.
Have just changed from radeon to nvidea video cards so thought it may be that, but as above, didn't have a problem racing offline. It doesnt lock up the game, just boots me back to the lobby. If its OK with you Wally ,might try joining the Tuesday night server just to run practise and see if I get booted off there.

Sure GW jump on on Tuesday. I'm curious if it's just the Caterham mod that gives you these dropouts. What happens if you just jump on any other populated server?

I have mine on a reliable profile, rather than fast.
 Just did a 10 min qual session and a 10 lap race with 20 odd cars on a French server with no dropouts.
That was using the GT3 cars though
Wondering if its the missus playing on her tablet at nights thats causing it, but I think my pings are OK

GW that is frustrating, you did have a high ping last night before disappearing. :(
If it is of interest, the cobras are  up on a different track but on the same server instance.

Last night for a while your ping was steadily about 550 GW.
