A practice race in the Ferrari 599XX - under season conditions, meaning 2 x 17 lap sprints, with ballast for the second race.
Track: Red Bull Ring (GP).

So that I can do the ballast, you'll need to sign up for this race. Everyone on the signup list here will be automatically signed up for the practice race, but if anyone else wants to join in the practice race, sign up in this thread.

Practice server is up; lap times are here.

Season 21 sees us racing the 2011 Ferrari 599XX EVO, the "extreme, non-homologated sports berlinetta".

Round Format
Single make sprints (no compulsory pit stops).
2 sprints:
  • Qualifying + Race 1
  • Race 2 starting in order of Race 1 finish
Success Ballast
In race 1 of every round, everyone starts with no ballast. In race 2 of every round, the top two thirds of the field will get a small amount of ballast to compress lap times, based on average (hot) lap times.

Track List
Feb 27: Donington Park GP (2 x 17 laps)
Mar 6: Blackwood Reloaded (2 x 22 laps)
Mar 13: Misano World Circuit (2 x 15 laps)
Mar 20: Croft (2 x 19 laps)
Mar 27: Mills Metropark (2 x 20 laps)
Apr 3: VIR Full Course (2 x 14 laps)
Apr 10: New Jersey Motorsports Park (2 x 25 laps)

100 points for the winner.
The top 2/3 of the finishers get points from 100 down to 10, based on your gap to the driver who finished 2/3 of the way down the field. The bigger the gap, the greater the points (up to 100). The bottom 1/3 of the finishers get points 10 down to 1.

Must complete 75% of the race laps to be classified a finisher and get any points.

Start Time
Qualifying starts at 8:45 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time up to Mar 27, and then once DST ends on Apr 1, from 8:30 pm Eastern Standard Time.

Other Bits
No damage restrictor.
1x fuel rate and 1x tyre wear.
The usual ballast penalty for the next round for causing an avoidable lap 1 incident.

The intention was twofold: the main intention was to make people exercise a little more caution and try to avoid contacts, to avoid the consequence of getting some restrictor in the next race, to add a little more drama to the "Oh shit, am I going to hit the wall" moments. The secondary intention was to mix the field up a little, where a fast guy might have copped some damage and been a little slower in the next race.

I wouldn't use damage restrictor every season - e.g. when there's already some kind of speed-based ballast or restrictor, it would bugger it up to then add more restrictor.

The 2004 Spanish Grand Prix (formally the XLVI Gran Premio Marlboro de España) was a Formula One motor race held on 9 May 2004 at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain. It was the fifth round of the 2004 Formula One season. The 66-lap race was won by Michael Schumacher for the Ferrari team. His teammate Rubens Barrichello finished second with Jarno Trulli third in a Renault car.

2 X 16 lap races at Barcelona Moto in the Ferrari F2004.

The car is blisteringly fast, the fastest car in AC in fact, but easy to drive. The car has TC, but no ABS or DRS.

100% grip, 0% damage, to make life easier.

Congratulations to Kcender87 on pole, all 3 race wins and the round win!

Race 1
Killagorilla did a deep pass on Shayne, and ran wide clipping Shayne – an incident (just).
Simone turned into Phil, but Phil was side-by-side and a little bit back – incident.

Race 2
Similar to race 1, but with roles reversed – RussG had a side-by-side incident.
A bit of a chain collision – Phil.8 bumped Killagorilla into Freezer into the corkscrew, which eventually sent Freezer of track, but maybe not directly as a result of the collision – incident (just).

Race 3

Season Podium
Congratulation to season 20 champion, Kcender87, in his inaugural championship win.
Kcender was on top of the standings for the entire round - an outstanding result.

1. Kcender87, 695 pts
2. Matthew.111, 609

You will need to download Seanus's extra pit mod from the link above.

This is the final round of the season.
Kcender87 is leading the season, with a 58 point buffer back to Matthew111. With a maximum of 140 points available in the round, it's mathematically possible for Matthew to take the lead. Killagorilla is in 3rd place, but only 11 points in front of Phil.8. Godzilla and Shayne are also distant contenders for 3rd place in the season.

This is an interesting project for AC (with a video). The guy generates random rally stages.

I've come up with an interesting idea for scoring, which will incentivise people to push on even when they're winning. The scoring will be based on your gap at the end of the race, so the bigger the gap you manage to pull, the more points you get. The gap is measured from the finisher 2/3 of the way down the field, e.g. position 12 out of 18 finishers. The winner gets 100 points, and then the points for lower positions are scaled according to the race gap. An example will make it clearer:

Look at the finish positions and gap to the leader in last round's race 3 here. The points for this round would be:

Mael         100 (winner always gets 100)
killagorilla   80 (killagorilla finished a fair bit behind Mael, so he gets less points than if he would have been closer).
Joe           74
Shayne      73 (Shayne finished just behind Joe - 0.6 secs - so gets nearly the same points as Joe)
RussG        52
Wally         50
Godzilla      49
Bacchulum  38
Phil            11
Dadio         10 (racer 2/3 down the field (but has to be on the lead lap), always gets 10)
Kcender87   9 (everyone who finished after the 2/3 guy gets 9 down to 1)
buellersdayoff   8
Seanus       7
ab156        6
Phil.8         0 (these guys didn't classify as finishers, so get 0)
Matthew111   0
Dave O       0
Rob            0

Or for race 2:

killagorilla        100 (top 5 were all fairly close at the end)
Mael               96
Phil                 96
buellersdayoff   94
Kcender87       93
Bacchulum       85 (Bacchulum, RussG and Wally finished close together)
RussG             84
Wally              82
ab156             55 (big gap back to ab156, so a gap in the points)
Shayne           45
Joe                22
Dave O           18
Dadio             10
Phil.8               9
Seanus            8
Matthew111     7
Godzilla            6
Rob                5
Simone           0

The finish gap chart makes it clear:

Congratulations to Phil.8 on pole and the race 1 win, killagorilla and Mael for their race wins, and killagorilla for winning the overall round.

Race 1
There was a side-to-side impact mid-corner between Shameless and Dadio which ended up with Shameless scraping along the wall. The replay shows that Shameless moved across just a little into the side of Dadio. Racing incident.

Race 2
Simone clipped the barrier at the fast right hander which bounced him across the track causing the pileup. Racing incident.

Race 3
Dave O clipped the barrier which bounced him into Seanus and also Matthew and Rob. Racing incident.

Season Podium
Killagorilla's good round sees him jump up 3 places on the ladder into 2nd place.
1. Kcender87, 435 pts
2. Killagorilla, 402
3. Phil.8, 396

Mover of the round on the ladder was Mael, jumping 8 places into 8th place.

Congratulations to Phil.8 on pole, Kcender and Matthew111 for their race wins, and Matthew111 for winning the overall round.

Race 2
  • Godzilla bumped the side of Joe, but given that they were side by side for some time and Godzilla had no real visibility of Joe’s car, this is a racing incident. 50kg penalty.
  • Kcender ran into the back of Shayne and spun him (the lag jump was at the start of lap 2 – this lap 1 incident looked nice and smooth) – 50 kg penalty.
  • RussG was off track and clipped the side of Godzilla’s car while re-entering, and then clipped JamieP’s car while correcting – racing incident (while RussG could have re-entered more safely, he was really the only car impacted).
Race 3
  • Kcender, Dave O and Shameless tried to fit 3 cars into one corner at the bottom of the downhill section, and Kcender on the outside came off worst – racing incident.
Season Podium
1. Kcender87, 340 pts
2. Phil.8, 313
3. Matthew111, 306

With Grat unable to make this round and Matthew's strong result, Matthew moves up into 3rd place. There was a bit of shuffling lower down on the points ladder, with Jeremy, Bacchulum, Wally, ab156, RussG and Phil all climbing a few places.
