Thank you to SkilletKid for suggesting the mod.

Slots filling fast, don't let the tough Thursday lads intimidate you!

Capri RS 3500

A 6 round season allowing us to enjoy this new very good mod and wind down to the end of the year with a roaring pre-Xmas Season.

The tracks will need Rooshooter acumen, to assist in quality/versions, the track specifics may change.

Two races per round: race 1 about 15 mins after qualifying, race 2 will be ~3 times race 1, with the starting order set by the order of race 1 fastest lap times. Race 2 will have  the "Restrictor" set dependant on race 1 positions.

Balancing the field
As above, setting the restrictor from the race 1 warm-up will allow the car/driver capabilities to be tightly aligned.

Schedule  Current track listings are not finalised, the current listing is lacking "nimble cars" advantages...

R1: Nov 09, Aosta Semi Oval Sports Chicane; 7 laps + 22 laps TBC
R2: Nov 16, Mosport Download, 7 laps + 20 laps
R3: Nov 23, Riverside Short Download, 6 laps + 18 laps
R4: Nov 30, Ahvenisto Download,  TBA
R5: Dec 7, Mont - Tremblant Download, 7 laps + 20 laps
R6: Dec 14, Silverstone 1967, 7 laps + 20 laps

Points
As per the "Phil.8 system".

Just to whet your appetite...

News / Street Side View of Ferrari's 70th Birthday

The prancing horse’s emotions in motion: Fortuitous close-ups from Ferrari’s official 70th anniversary party



Once in a decade, there is a moment of the year when it is possible to see a literal herd of prancing horses gathering together to celebrate their birthplace’s birthday: just like in previous years ending with number 7, 2017 was another one of those magical moment when such an event was possible.

Yes, Ferrari now is 70 years old, and rarely it has looked so young, successful and dynamic like in these months: with record-setting production and record-breaking stock exchange successes, seems like there were more than the usual amount of reasons to indulge in celebrations and festivities.

Also the recent F1 drawbacks in Spa and Monza weren’t enough to dilute the thrilling pathos of so great an era for the Maranello realm – apparently.

Therefore, it’s no wonder that during this past week of September, birthday events became a grandiose tribute like anything before, climaxing in the two-days meeting right on the Fiorano track, sort of ideal nursery for all cars with the Prancing Horse on the hood.

News / 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport by Ghia... lovely!
« on: July 11, 2017, 06:04:39 PM »

It isn’t often that a Best of Show contender at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is restored in an owner’s garage, then hauled cross-country in a borrowed trailer towed by a friend’s truck. Such was the case in 2015, when a stunning 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport by Ghia won the Postwar Early class, on its way to being named as a finalist (one of three) for Best of Show. Two years later, the Abarth heads to auction, at no reserve, part of RM Sotheby’s upcoming Monterey sale.
