Flattops Thursday - Fun Run - 28/12/2017
« on: December 22, 2017, 09:35:40 PM »
Thought we might have another fun run in the new alfa stradale.

Track
http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/goodwood-circuit.17228/
The fake wet layout sounds interesting, but not going to use it this time.

Goodwood Motor Circuit mod is created using LiDAR data. No guesswork involved.

 When I found LiDAR data of Chichester (thanks to our forum community), I have decided that existing old Goodwood circuit mod can go to pension. I feel like my version is significantly better already. Take Goodwood Revival or Members Meeting spirit some pre 70s cars and have fun.

 What is LiDAR ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lidar

Don't be surprised that track is rather bumpy, it has many undulations, it is far from flat. Most cars feels very good, however few cars might feel not perfectly suited for this type of track and those are the ones which never raced in Goodwood.

 Fake Wet layout is included for wet track placebo, don't be surprised that it is so slippery, 1"50 is a fast laptime at Goodwood when it is wet. Use alternative lines to get more grip, optimum lines has less grip. Pretty much first time in simracing when you'll have to search for grip in circuit :)

Bruce McLaren died (aged 32) when his Can-Am car crashed on the Lavant Straight just before Woodcote corner at Goodwood Circuit in England on 2 June 1970. He had been testing his new M8D when the rear bodywork came adrift at speed.
A great circuit which always reminds me of a great man who created great cars. 8)

No, everything should still be as before.
