If lap times are 8:30, the race can go for up to 17 mins longer than the duration (at most nearly 2 laps extra), so if anything, you'd want to make the race shorter rather than longer. 1:50 will lead to a race that's anywhere between 1:58.5 to 2:07 in length.

Yep, I've already bumped up the race over time to give people time to finish the race.

I've made the race length 1hr50 + 1 lap. Because a lap is 8+ mins, this will bring it close to 2 hrs in total duration.

What happens is when the time left reaches 0:00 (after 1hr50 of racing), it says "The leader has 2 laps to go" at the top of the screen, because the leader has to finish the lap that he's on when the time reaches 0:00, then do 1 more lap to end the race.
Then it says "The leader is on the final lap".

this should be interesting round, it is going to be a race of tyre management,  just lapping normal not over doing it lefts are at about 103 degrees, start pushing they get too warm, and one mistake forget about doing any reasonable pace for a lap or so until they drop 20 or 30 degree.   

This is not a complaint, i am looking forward to the tyre management
 
is it just me or does anyone else think ac does not feel right when tyres are cold or too warm,  in any car I have been in at speed , either driving or passenger I have never felt like I am driving on ice, unless I am driving on ice, one of my previous jobs gave me access to basketville and we would unload the old ute at end of the day and even crap tyres never felt like on ice in middle of tassie winter with outside temp of like 10 degree when lapping at basketball, or some of the mazdas and nissans and stuff I got a go in and drive a couple never felt like you would slide off the road cause tyrers were cold.

anyway to me ac feels realistic when tyres are normal temps and it just feels like they made it slippery to simulate cold and hot

Hmm but practice server is being used for qualifying, yes?
Yep.

Those temps seem fine. In assettocorsa.ini, I think there's a setting about number of physics threads. -1 is automatic. That relates to the number of cores used. You could try different values there e. G 2 should use 2 cores.

Grat, have you checked CPU temps? To me, that onset of stuttering has always sounded like overheating problems. That could be why it starts off good, and then degrades with stuttering starting.

I added a link to the qualifying times in the first post.

Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: S8 R1 - Mosport 2012 - 27-04-2017

That was a tremendous race with Mael. We were pretty close for most of the race, with Mael in front except for when he made one little mistake and I could get in front for a while. His Lotus had too much speed down the back straight for my Lola though. Really good racing.

Sorry for the no show. I'm in New Zealand ATM and knew I'd forgotten to do something before I left- notify that I want going to make it. See you next week.
No worries Darren, see you at New Jersey.

The handful of cars I've tested have only had 8 or so seconds between them.

11
Tested a few cars and seems the p 4/5 is a bit too slow so unlikely anyone will pick that, about 20 seconds off the pace just down on power quite a bit and hasnt got a great deal of grip either so not a lot going for it lol.
That's why I originally excluded it, for being too slow. But hey, someone might just enjoy driving it for 2 hours.

I'm getting a checksum error on your server Marty, any ideas?
There was a new version released at some stage. The latest version of the track on RD is 1.1.

13
final round already,  just starting to tolerate the Porsche and its over
Look at it this way... the sooner you're out of the Porsche, the sooner you'll be in an open wheeler.

Yes Wally that was great fun!!  i was exiting in 2nd gear,(back straight)i noticed from the replay you were using the 1st gear and i think thats was your night there lol.
My wing was a 10,maybe it gave me  a bit of understeer and thats was my night there lol   EPIC race mate!!!!
I was trying both 1st and 2nd. 1st may have felt slightly better, actually. Your high rear wing must have been keeping the rear more planted when you were exiting the corner, although it was only low speed.

WD Cursed!!!!    >:(   This morning i woke up with a seized right shoulder due to the intense battle on the track last night,...me thinking of hanging the steering wheel on the wall ::)
Great racing!!! This time i was determined to fight all through and it paid.Huge chase Wally ,thx to you and your common sense the battle was fun but tough.After i re-enter the track after pitting i saw wally behind me at about 5 sec but my tyres were cold and i had to take it easy,unfortunately all my advantage was lost when i went briefly on the grass....bugger here he(wally) comes again.Tyres became warmer and i could defend my position for the rest of the race,,,,nice finishing ahead of you Mr Masterson   :-*

A complete shame my 10 sec penalty for too many cuts...cuts?  where???  anyway i accept the rules.During the back straight i saw wally a couples of sec behind so with my left hand   i grabbed  a paper towel to wipe some sweat from my face...yes... almost lost it and found myself on the grass for 100 mt and wally again on my ass   ;D ;D ;D

Fun tuesday evening,thx all!!!
Yeah, it was a great race. I had nowhere to pass you. I could catch up in the slow switchbacks, but then you'd lose me on the straights. How did you get such good drive onto the back straight? Where you taking that corner in 1st or 2nd? I had 7 wing I think.
