I think this forum's software can be set to a % of browser width, and that would be ideal. The problem with zoom is the attached pictures still need to be scrolled if they are over about 960px wide.
I will take a look at the forum settings (some time).

I had a quick look yesterday. There is one line of css for the wrapper width which when I adjusted with dev tools seemed fine for all the pages I tried.

/* over 1600 screens - newer desktops */
@media only screen and (min-width: 1200px) {
   #wrapper { width: 1200px; margin: auto; }
}

Thanks for organizing Phil and a fun end to the season. The F40 was a pleasure to drive here, I'm tempted to chuck it up on my server.

I hadn't even loaded this track before the night but fortunately with it's mostly long sweeping turns and long straights it was easy to navigate with the track map.

Qualified 3rd, but spun it coming out of T1 at the start of the second lap. I could see Phil went wide in front so I hit the apex and gave it too much throttle eager to try and make a pass.

After that spent a good number of laps hunting Seanus with some good side by side action. I eventually got past around lap 9 or so, but in looking to make sure I'd cleared him I missed my braking point on tyres that were going off, only just touched the barrier but it fired me off into his path. Sorry. He got me back a lap or so later when he spun and I couldn't avoid him, then at the end of that lap I spun it through T1 again losing a few places.

Thanks for another awesome season Wally, Tuesday night is still the highlight of my week!

I seemed to do well in these cars; over the time I've been sim racing I've had times where I feel I've made a noticeable improvement and that happened during the season. It was actually around the same time I got my new wheel but I think that's coincidence.

The other times were when I moved to triples and when I got load cell pedals so equipment definitely does come into it to a degree. That said skill is clearly the largest factor with Guybrush smoking us all on his single screen and G27... Some of the new peeps are yet to witness The GB!

Wally, none of my qually laps were a cut, and my second fastest lap was 1:53:516 yet I started 10th in R2? I checked the second fastest laps for a few people that started in front of me and they were slower?

It was wrong because the names in-game (i.e. your Steam name), didn't match the name in the server's entry list. The correct race 2 start order should have been:

Racer: Phil.8, 2nd best qual lap: 1:52:497
Racer: Joe Stevens, 2nd best qual lap: 1:53:516
Racer: Mael, 2nd best qual lap: 1:53:591
Racer: nith, 2nd best qual lap: 1:53:700
Racer: RussG, 2nd best qual lap: 1:53:932
Racer: Glenn Frost, 2nd best qual lap: 1:54:020
Racer: XGN Wally, 2nd best qual lap: 1:54:180
Racer: AB156, 2nd best qual lap: 1:54:359
Racer: Seanus, 2nd best qual lap: 1:54:560
Racer: grat, 2nd best qual lap: 1:54:819
Racer: Diehard, 2nd best qual lap: 1:55:101
Racer: Kcender87, 2nd best qual lap: 1:55:156
Racer: Bacchulum, 2nd best qual lap: 1:55:241
Racer: Simone, 2nd best qual lap: 1:55:349
Racer: mofodoobs, 2nd best qual lap: 1:56:821
Racer: chap111, 2nd best qual lap: 1:59:336
Racer: Astro Spectra, 2nd best qual lap: 2:19:086

I'll have to make some changes/fixes as a result of AC 1.12 :(

Oh well, I still kept 3rd in the season standing after what felt like a bad night. All I take from these corrected results is that even though mael is 'officially' standing on the 3rd position step with me, that's all based on a lie  ;D

Yeah, something went wrong. Wally started way too behind as well... he should have started 2nd or so.

Looks like Mael started 2nd and his second fastest qually lap was slower than mine.

The road I was talking about:

http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/sp237-coste-open-road.13019/

South loop is really good. Do not miss the alternate AI grid: just start a quick race with a random mix of 20 or so cars and enjoy.

If you want to see a 100 meters jump, try to crash on the left after the first left hairpin downhill in the south loop.

As for the track itself: it's missing some nicer physical mesh and some details on the scenery. But otherwise it is the most realistic road I have seen. Better than lake louise.

Looks fun. I also saw this one which is the same type of thing.

Poor end to a great season for me. Qualified 2nd, but was sluggish off the line as usual and had people come up either side of me. I could see them getting closer and closer on helicorsa and I was trying to hold it straight but then the inevitable happened and there was contact and then a pinball effect. I have  no idea who was to blame, but I guess if I was one of the trailing cars in that situation I probably would have backed off being lap 1 and before T1. Car was a wreck and had to quit.

R2 I started 10th; I had a lot of quick laps in qually so guess they were cuts but didn't see PLP tell me they were so will wait for the results. Spent the first 8 laps trying to pass kcender. Would get past him on the straight but couldn't get it to stick. Finally did then was behind Baccculum and somebody else both who pitted as did kcender. I put in a quick lap then pitted expecting to come out in front but I missed my pit box and had to reverse. I came out just behind kcender and we did the same again a few times. Eventually I got away in a messy way by screwing up my line in T2/T3 and him giving me a little tap in the rear pushing him off. After that Mael was 17 seconds ahead and I got that down to 7-8 seconds by the end but not enough. I put in 3 52's in the last 3 laps two of them PBs.

Disappointing as I assume no points in R1 will knock me off the podium and give it to Mael.

I see somebody has done a 620R mod of the academy version. Would be good to try and see the difference between the two.

I won't make this one as I am attending a Sim Racing event that a mate is organising at the Microsoft store in Sydney  ;D

Where was my invite. Office is just around the corner  :)

You should see Cornish roads



Very similar to a lot of the roads I drove on in Scotland. Most of them also had 60 or 70mph speed limits and under those bushes were rock walls...

Yeah all the roads like this are national speed limit which is 60mph
