I would like to watch it Bacchulum. It really was the pinnacle of Sports Car racing like the turbo era was the pinnacle of F1. They were crazy cars and the drivers and spectators just loved them.

Kind of had you in mind when I posted, roo. ;)

Group 7 was never meant to be regulations to build a car to. ::)
Sports cars were 'grouped' according to engine capacity and weight.
Group 7 was just for cars that didn't comply to any other group, hence no weight limits or capacity limits.
Sure, they were heavier than F1 cars (530kg - 690kg) but McLaren had 8.3 litres - F1's 3 litres. :o

I love the mindset of the drivers at the time:
Quote
It was largely Flegl who created the Porsche 917-30, whose 1100 horsepower, the SCCA bitched, was killing the Can-Am series. Donohue disagreed. “We’re far from having too much horsepower,” he asserted. “My definition of too much horsepower is when all four wheels are spinning in every gear.”
8) ;D 8)

btw
I also have the whole 1971 Watkins Glen race.
I'll upload it if anyone wants it but be warned, there's no DRS so overtaking is low. ;)
(they've even left in some motorsport related ads of the time  ;D )

I watched this great doco today, what a fascinating era of motor sport. 0 to 200 MPH 10, seconds. Faster than the F1 cars of the same year (no wonder we all found them a bit of a handfull) . It has got me fired up to do another  series in these cars, and we now have good versions of Laguna Seca plus some of other tracks. I think there is some other Grp 7 cars also available now as well. The  top F1 drivers really enjoyed driving these cars as well as the F1 cars. Thanks Bacchulum I really enjoyed it :) 8).

This is what I really love about simracing, being able to relive these motorsport historic milestones 8) 8) 8)

I can't get this to work :'( . Exactly where do you drag and drop pit-mod files to ? I still am getting unavailable content on server list :'(
I can't remember - you need to see what folder is at the top level of the zip file, and drag that onto the same place. E.g. if the zip starts at ks_highlands, drag that into your tracks folder.
Thanks Wally, now I understand, and I can join server :).

It just felt good around here, being gentle on the throttle, upshifting early when exiting corners, entering the hairpins very slowly.


Sorry about the lap 1 wobble in front of you Seanus. It almost turned into a baby tankslapper there.

Thanks guys. I had extra model files on the server from a track mod I have which adds traffic to Highlands.

A good night of racing and change to an enduro. Congratulations to Wally, Mael and Imp with Humper a very close 4th. It was an off night for me :'(( but they don't happen very often) and I still enjoyed the race :). Bad luck Bacchulum , you made some very rare mistakes. I think you and Phil are a bit hard on yourselves with the handicapping sometimes :(. I thought it was funny how nearly everyone commented on how hard this track was at the start and set very fast times by qualifying. I am looking forward to Castle Hill.
