S22R4: German Grand Prix at Nordschleife
« on: May 22, 2018, 10:54:45 PM »
The halfway point of the season takes us to the big one: The Nordschleife (Endurance Cup layout).
The 1975 grand prix was won by the Argentinian Carlos Reutemann in a Brabham.
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.
The race will only be 7 laps (so I may have to adjust fuel and tyre wear after some testing - perhaps make them just 1x for this race). If anyone has any thoughts on pit stops in a 7 lap race, shoot. It would probably be best to not require a pit stop - but we'll have to see if tyres can last the full distance without a stop, even at 1x.
Also, I'll make all of practice a qualifying session, so we can actually get more than 1 qualifying lap in.

The practice server is set to 1x tyre wear and fuel rate, and in the interests of people being able to work out a pit strategy, I'll leave it at that for the race too. I haven't tested those multipliers myself, but being only a 7 lap race, it feels more right. Maybe it means you won't have to pit at all - I don't know. If anyone tries it and finds some disastrous consequence, let us know.

If I ever get past a warm-up lap I'll let you know.  lol

Offline I did 4 timed laps (that didn't count because I had little off tracks) and the fuel estimator says I can do 8 laps with 100 litres fuel. The tyres (Hard) might not make it in good nick. They'll be struggling for the last lap or two. I reckon the tyre situation will make it interesting.

I had to go offline with 0% to finish laps, but I did manage about 3 without contacts that would have caused damage.  It's the first two that really cause me problems.
I'm going to try again sometime today on the server. Once you do two it actually feels easier............and then you miss a brake point.  :)

It could be a race of attrition by the sound of it. Slow and steady might win the race.

I'm both disappointed and glad, I'm at work for this round. I think the rabbit has got this one in the bag, but the turtles should at least finish...a lap or two behind...lol

Hi Wally: unfortunately I have to confirm that I have to dismantle the rig tomorrow for my move. Sorry. Not sure when it will be back up yet.
