Don't hit the wall going up the hill, instant blown motor :(
Ah, I have to check if the practice server is back on 50% damage!

Edit: Yep, restarted the prac server with 50% damage.

Apologies to Wally for the punt in Race 2. I did take a look a few times in the replay, I braked the same place as the previous lap (in hindsight maybe a bit too late) and You
appeared to lock up before the corner, next You were collected by Gratulin upon reentering.  I probaby should have kept going as I didn't
realise there had been a second coming together.
The Carma was quite dodgy under brakes. I managed to improve it a bit with some set up changes (mostly using Bacchulum's tip of rear toe out), but it was still easy to lock up. A lap or two earlier, Imp, I managed to just barely drift it around turn 1 after just passing you which was a) brilliant driving, or b) a stroke of luck, take your pick.
I'm not sure now whether I was still out of control on re-entry after hitting the wall and sliding on the grass, but apologies to Gratulin just in case.

I might miss race 1 for this round, but I'll be there for later ones.

Hi Wally, I'm keen to get in on racing these cars, any spots left?
Cheers,
Steve
Hi Steve, thanks for your PM. It sounds like you're good to go. See you on Tuesday night at Watkins Glen!

I won't have a chance to try any cars beforehand, so I can just have the same as Monsieur Bacchulum.

Updated first point with all the details.

The very first race that used the chicane was the 1975 GP.
If we've been able to be accurate, we have so far, so that's why I said 'with'.

The Scheckter (esses) chicane was in use in '75, the bus stop wasn't built until '92!  :P
Let's just back up a year and pretend this race is in 1974.  ;D
You know what? I'm sorely tempted to because I hate chicanes as much as anyone.

The thing that always held KS back is their insistence on using their own proprietary graphics engine (programmer's arrogance maybe). Now they're finally using a robust third party graphics engine, it opens up lighting and weather effects.


I'm only worried that it's going to need quite the hardware upgrade for my poor old GTX980.

Hi all,

Also looking to get back into simracing, but not sure i want to keep giving iRacing money anymore. Interested to see how i go with you guys if that's ok? Am enjoying AC a lot, mucking around with mods and hotlapping.

Cheers,
Steve
Hi Steve and welcome. We've got a fun run next Tuesday that Phil.8 is organising while I'm away that you're welcome to come and join in. Then the following Tuesday it's the final race of the current season in the 1975 F1's. Then there'll be some Tuesday fun runs which will be a good opportunity to get some more Tuesday races in.
