I loved to be in the open wheelers again but the head shake was killing me and just couldn't focus. Don't seem to have the shake at A1 Ring.

Had a wierd sort of compromise night with the cars where I couldn't get a good setup for the tyres. Mediums went off about lap 9 and Hards took 7 laps to start working. Lots of spins for me but such a satisfying feeling to get a clean lap in. Track cuts were an issue here as I seemed to be getting them even with 2 wheels still on the track. Anyway, I had a blast.

What about a compromise season of the the forumla abarth or something like that. I'd love an F1 season at tracks like instanbul, magny Cours and the like with a few tight tracks thrown in for variety but an open wheel sesaon in anything would suit me fine

You can turn the head shake off or down in the AC launcher, can't you?

A F2004 season is definitely on the cards, I reckon. People were already able to drive and race well in this one practice race. As someone mentioned, lack of KERS and DRS means speeds are more consistent and predictable, so it's easier to race close.

The Formula Abarth is a relatively boring car, but yes it's available as a compromise open wheeler as well. It's a long time since we've raced it.

I'd check for anything running in the background. Windows updates? Other program's updates? Maybe do a full virus/malware scan in case there's something on your PC sending out data.

I'll take a spot on the grid this season please.
Goodo. Welcome back.

Ah, the hype train is leaving the station...

A practice race in the Ferrari 599XX - under season conditions, meaning 2 x 17 lap sprints, with ballast for the second race.
Track: Red Bull Ring (GP).

So that I can do the ballast, you'll need to sign up for this race. Everyone on the signup list here will be automatically signed up for the practice race, but if anyone else wants to join in the practice race, sign up in this thread.

Practice server is up; lap times are here.

I really struggled last night, just seeing.
After about 5-7 laps, all the 'jiggling'had me cross-eyed.
Maybe I just need new glasses, as I did find myself leaning my head back to look through the reading part of my multi-focals.

Just a bad night. :(
And in these cars, you sure do need to see, and fast.


I have glasses just for computer screen distance.

Congratulations to Kcender87 on the two race wins.

I did really well in race 1, coming 3rd after other people's accidents and track cutting penalties, also managing to put in the most consistent lap times.

Race 2 was a bit more eventful, with a few accidents here and there and some brain-fade spins on kerbs, but it was still immense fun. I was eventually in a nice groove, just listening to the screaming V10.

A season with no damage, and tyre wear tweaked so that you could just manage to get away without a pit stop with some tyre conservation, or opt for a pit stop with a short stint on softs, would be a lot of fun.
Would love a season, but I am definitely against the no-damage idea. F1 is a no contact sport. ;)
For the pros, maybe. For us mere mortals there are plenty of big, potentially race wrecking impacts with other cars and barriers. I know from experience that it would be too frustrating to cop race wrecking damage in these fast, fragile cars.

I will have a go please, but I suspect my internet might be too slow for the whole season as its getting worse everyday

That is bordering on the ridiculous now Phil.

I restarted the server - it was that models thing again.

Server's up... with the usual password.

Climbing? Rock climbing? It made you sore?
yes, rock. A little sore here and there, but nothing big. Quite fun, though.
I used to do a little bit of rock climbing and really enjoyed it. On real rocks. None of this mamby pamby artificial stuff.

Hats off to the guys putting in the top times so far... Kcender87, Phil.8, Mael... It takes some guts to find those extra seconds.
