Actually, I changed my mind, to reward the winners more. I'll make it 25, 22, 20, 19, 18...
and what is the cash breakdown?  Just working my strategy!!! :)

And it costs $300 each round to enter (1st round already paid for).

Coulda/shoulda done better in the second race, but hit the wall too many times!

Hey Wally, I see when can afford any car from the start!  Do we keep it after each round?
I know you get less cash for finishing up the front but what is the point system?
Thanks - I stuffed up the opening balance. Should be OK now - you can only afford the bottom 3 cars.
Like the Porsche trial, you lose your car every round, getting the Nissan by default, but then renting whatever you can afford.

The point system is 24,23,22.. down to 1, if that's what you mean.

yes please
Don't sign up here - go to the car dealer and sign up there!

Sign ups are open for season 27 - "Rent a sports car and drive it like you stole it". The season starts MARCH 5.

To sign up, head over to the CAR DEALER and sign up (if you haven't logged in yet, you login with your GUID, e.g. 7656119xxxxxxxxxx, which is your steam ID or also in AC's race.ini. If in doubt, PM me and I'll tell you your GUID).

(from dearest to cheapest)
Lotus Evora S
BMW 1M Stage 3
Alfa Romeo 4C
Abarth 500 Assetto Corse
Ford Mustang 2015
BMW Z4 E89 Step1
Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec

Paul Ricard WTCC
Silverstone International
Modena Fast
Oulton Park International (No Chicane)

You can check out the season schedule here.

The format's going to be like the trial season: 3 sprints, with races 2 and 3 in order of the previous results. There is an entrance fee of $300 each round (so the leaders won't necessarily be able to stay in the same car forever). There is the same fee deducted from your earnings for damage to the car, and a fine for causing an opening lap incident.

24, 23, 22... etc down to 1.
1 point for pole position; 1 point for fastest race lap.

I wonder why they shut down? Pinged for copyright infringement?

Abarth 500 Assetto Corse's at Knockhill 2017 - a few 15 lap sprints.

TRACK: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eFB0EgfIwfahscB1KVML0ySIKES5xotS/view?usp=sharing

A track where fortune favours the brave!

I agree, the Abarth is a lot of fun. Since I still have another week to kill while people are away, let's have a fun run in the Abarth next Tuesday. Get those rear wheels in the air!

I had some good battles: my Alfa vs. Phil's Mustang, my Abarth against Bacchulum's Mustang, my Z4 versus Joe's Skyline. I reckon it will be good racing.

Here are the race results, if you want to see how the cars performed.


I've also attached the practice times, if you want to see those.

Server's up (password protected). The 1st practice session has all the cars; then I'll break it into 3 sprints in groups of cars.

Race 1 - choose one of the Nissan, BMW Z4 or Mustang.
Race 2 - Mustang, Alfa, Abarth.
Race 3 - Abarth, BMW 1M, Lotus.

Remember, the cars aren't all meant to be the same, they're meant to be evenly staggered in performance.

Seeing the Abarth, BMW & Mustang on track at the same time weirdly made me think of the Mini v Cortina v Galaxy days. :D
Just modern...... ;)
I'm hoping it should be an interesting mix of cars on track.

Sorry for my absence recently. Been struggling to get back to it after Xmas. Who knew 3 kids under 7 and a full time job would be so tiring. Gets to the evening and can't even be bothered to leave the sofa. I'll try and make the fun run tomorrow though.
Think of it as de-stress time. Under Dr. Wally's orders.

Added some info in the 1st post:

Practice is going to be all the cars combined.
Race 1 - choose one of the Nissan, BMW Z4 or Mustang.
Race 2 - Mustang, Alfa, Abarth.
Race 3 - Abarth, BMW 1M, Lotus.

I've adjusted the ballast/restrictor based on the lap times I'm seeing, to squeeze up the gaps between the cars a bit and spread them evenly.

I'll be off for a couple of weeks. Sold my house and gotta move next week.

I'll be away for 2 weeks on holiday  ;D ;D

OK, we'll be having some other fun run the week after next, and then the season can start when you return.
