Hi Guys,


I'm going away at the start of August (not sure when, my wife will tell me though) so I'm not sure if/or I'll miss any races..

Sign me up ;)

I am keen for either LMP1 or Escort, I do however think Escort will be more fun to race ;)

and from there on focused on irritating Kero as mush as possible. Sorry Kero someone had to suffer for my misfortunes  ;D

All good Mael, you did some good defensive driving  ;)

Race 1

Probably could've qualified a bit better but wanted to focus on running my race setup. In saying that I was happy to qualify 3rd (I think). Made a clean start behind Mathew and just after turn 1 was trying to hold my line and think I slightly rubbed tyres with Grat. After that, cant remember what lap it was but made a mistake and made contact with a wall so I took the opportunity to pit and repair my car. I could go on but long story short, very happy to come in 2nd in the first race.

Race 2

Think from my position shortly after the start (with a bit of luck) I was in a good position to push for a win considering Mathew was a couple of places behind me, but as usual I got a bit excited got on the gas a bit early and put it into the wall. Made my way back to the pits repaired my car and then proceeded to chase Mael for the rest of the race, I could catch him but couldn't find my way past, then I would make a mistake trying to pass and the process would repeat ALL RACE  :P Well done Mael ;)

Anyway, I'm having a great time racing with you all, can't wait for the next race!

I'm actually enjoying the current settings ;) The race is going to be cooler isn't it, that always causes me issues!
Current forecast for Tuesday is about 27 degrees, with a 23 kph easterly wind.

Oh, so it going to be warmer :D

Dismal night...!
Story of the season, pretty good pace, like the car, had a good setup . . . results . . . Nil!
R1 got to 7th right behind the faster guys when Kero spun and collected me in the process.  The subsequent hit with the wall killed my engine so game over!
R2 If someone didn't either hit me, I get collected by a spinning car or I spin under my own doing then it wasn't a complete lap..! 
Time for Zandvoort . . .  fingers crossed for some points!

Sorry about that Freezer, taking myself out was one thing, but hate the idea of taking someone with me!

Onto my races:

R1

Had a few good setups and was feeling comfortable with this combo, but as was the same as last week got a bit excited and got on the gas a bit early coming out of turn 3 losing the back, spinning into the wall and taking Freezer out in the process.

R2

Got too excited and didn't select my race set up and was stuck on my qualifying set up instead, leaving me with 6 litres of fuel  ::)
Other than that and a few minor mistakes I was reasonably happy with race two.

Morale of the story, I still have a lot to learn, but am enjoying every moment of it  ;D

The wind's going to be about twice as strong in race 2, blowing roughly along the straight from behind, so we might notice a difference in downforce in the afternoon race.


Grat, Kcender87, Phil and KeRo have all posted times in the 28s in practice.

Hopefully I can be consistent tonight ;)

Be sure to have 'MEDIUM" selected under the Compounds tab.
'NO CHANGE' doesn't mean keep the same compound, it means don't change tyres. ;)
(quite a few of us have made that mistake)

Thank you both Bacchulum and Simone, think that was the problem. Had my set up all done but didn't have the tyres selected...

I'm running an ultra high down force set up. It's good for a few laps, not sure how it will go over 20 laps though..

I want to set up the track to simulate the race day track, can somebody let me know what settings I should use, ie green, dusty? And temp ;)
Go for a fast track. You can check out the forecast via the link in the first post, go to the Tuesday tab and look at 13:00. Current forecast is 27 and clear.

Cheers Wally, will give that a crack ;)

It doesn't do anything I pull up then have to press escape to pit.....

12
But I think Wally did not notice Shayne overlapping and he was on a trajectory moving left, so that the space closed. Congrats to Shayne for holding it together on the grass, though. I would have spun and take both cars out!
That's it, really. I didn't know Shayne was there and should have noticed him on Helicorsa.


KeRo you're not using the old PitConfig app, are you? If you are, you should ditch that and just rely on AC's pitstop strategy.

Hey Wally, no old pit apps... its strange because i did a singleplayer race and pitted no problem but tried in the race on the practice sever the other day and driving into the pits doesnt't seem to work for me...

Not trying to get anybody in trouble, but are there any penalties for adding fuel?
I think it was just an innocent mistake. KeRo added 8 litres in race 1.

Thanks Wally, that's right.. Not sure how the whole pits thing works, I set up my pit strategy to add no fuel then I pitted and it still added it.... If anyone could let me know how to pit properly that would be greatly appreciated ;)

On to my races:

Firstly, thanks for the races everyone! Even though I had a shocker in both races I really enjoyed the night.

Not much to summarise really,

Race One: Started fairly well but struggled to get heat in the tyres so was really hard to keep a consistent pace. On lap 4 came out of turn 9 and got on the gas a bit early thus putting myself in the wall.

Race Two: Started near the back of the grid, was a clean start and was making up time on the car in front coming into turn 10 but was probably a bit deep under breaks when the door was closed, made slight contact with the car in front and went into the barrier.

Morale of the story, I still have a lot to learn when it comes to actually racing, not just hot lapping... So I hope you can all bare with me (and help please) while I learn the finer art of racing ;)

Quick question, was the race server set up the same as the practice server? I had a pretty good setup on the practice server, but when I came to the race server I pretty much had to rush to fix my setup to make it work, and I struggled big time....

Another incredible funny racing noight here at XGN and AC!!!
Not a very good race  for me at least the first one,i hit freezer in the back first and luckily no one lost too many position or had major damage.Then i got entangled with wally while braking toward Remus corner,my fault and  i gave wally the  position again,we both lost positions.I feel sorry for that because it could have been a super fight.
In race 2 i had some luck especially when i went trough the mess without a scratch.Good batlle with russg,I was not very happy when Joe passed but there was nothing i could.Happier again when i saw he went to pick daisy in the nearby loan.And phil can confirm that it took him 3 laps before he could pass me,,lolol   :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
A good racing night!!

ps: Hey Mael!!! what happened in front of the finish line mate? i almost crashed into  your rear????!!!  ahahhahahahaa

And yes i forgot to welcomed kero in the league,it looks like he got some speed but maybe he needs some more practice for Brelgium??? 8) 8) 8) 8)

See you!!!



Thanks Simone ;)

Yes really need more practice around the Ring.. Haven't really done many laps there so spent both races just trying to get the car to stay on the track  :-[
