Taking the corner too slowly is too bumpy.
Taking the corner too slowly is too slow  :P :o ;D
There's that too! I see you and Phil.8 have upped the ante and put in some speedy lap times.

At Hawthorn, I've kind of got the car balanced so I am really steering with the throttle through there.

I managed a 1:19 flat here so far. Here's my take on the track.

It pays to straight line the chicane as much as possible on exit, but cut it too fine at the tyre bundles and it ends in tears and twisted metal.

The exit of Tower Bend is very bumpy and unsettles the car, before the important run through the Jim Clark Esses and Barcroft. I found that by taking a slow and wide entry, keeping up more speed through the bumps tends to smooth them out and unsettle the car less (like driving over corrugations). Taking the corner too slowly is too bumpy.

You can get a real good flow from Tower Bend, through the Esses, through Barcroft and then right through Sunny In and Out, carrying a lot of speed through there.

As for the other slow corners, don't enter them too fast!

Ask Grat where another 1.3 seconds are ;)

I can see that with enough practice, these cars give a sense of achievement when you can drift them around a corner and keep them on the track :)

Yeah, that does sound unusual (and for Joe too), as this Caterham is a joy to drive on any track. I think Joe just buckled under the pressure of knowing that I was chasing him  8)

With a rolling start, why would you need more? :P
Ha! Why not only one then ;)
Because you would burn the clutch out getting it moving  ::) remember it has a top speed of 300kph, so 2 gears is the minimum for such a speed range.
Watch this from 1:30... starting a Corvette from 5th gear. Who needs more than 1 gear? :)

It's a fair scoring scheme, not weird. You are rewarded more for being able to pull out a greater lead when the field is compressed with ballast.

I know in this instance you scored more because Phil and Matt tangled, but that's racing. In any type of scoring, they might have been 1 and 2 and crashed, gifting you the win. It happens. But in general, the faster you are than others, the more points you score.

If someone is good enough to finish 30 seconds in front of the field, instead of 1 second, shouldn't they be rewarded more? You could say that traditional scoring, where you might get 2 more points whether you finish 30 seconds or 1 second in front, is unfair.

Yeah, I blew it with a spin into the fence in race 2 after putting a wheel outside a kerb, which put me too far back to be any fun  :'(
But it was still fun then actually racing with people but a lap down.

Race 1, I just couldn't catch Mael, who CLEARLY needs more restrictor  8)

Ok my friends,after working with the telstra guy and showing him all the telstra pit that i know in the jungle,we came to the conclusion that indeed i need to replace the telephone cable(100mt).But before leaving we managed to put back some sort of internet with a hat trick,Yes internet is back.do not know for how long but is back and travelling to a 2.5 MB x sec....nooooooice,still some static noise but it is what it is,i should actually pressing telstra to give me a free year,,k`noth!!!
I will yes dig a trench and lay the pipe and the rope ready to connect in the near future,i got a tractor and a grader :o so is not a big deal.They wont come and do it in a hurry so they can get stuffed.!!!  i cant wait for NBN,it will take probably 2 years.100 mts of out outdoor tel cable plus a rope its around 200 dollars,,,,i can make it ,,,i have to otherwise no internet mate!!!!!!
...........but i can race next tuesday with you guys and thats a big news   
   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

cheers internet in ozzie land sucks,,,,,,,but nor for focking bird!!!!!!   :D :D :D :D
OK Simone, I'll make sure you've got a spot.

I noticed in race 2 results I'm down as finishing last Wally, pretty sure there was at least 1 car behind me?

Not worried about it, just interested as to why?  Cheers Dave O.  :)
See how your position is red in the results? If you hover your mouse over that, it shows you got a 10 second penalty for cutting.

Invalid Laps don't count!!
I don't know what invalid means for stracker. All the aids are grey too...


I'll drive more relaxed next round and not push the car too much as this seems to yield a laptime loss for me more often than not. Almost getting my head around driving these things but I guess some practice time would be a little helpful
I reckon the biggest change with this car is to enter the corner relatively slowly and make sure you can turn in early. With sufficient TC, it's not too hard getting the power down on exit.

It doesn't count unless you have a fastest sector as well.

For this track, I focussed just on the slow corner leading onto the fast back straight, and optimised the outer (left) cambers. How well that worked, I'm not sure.
