For a more strategic racing another league tried the following with the Lotus 98T by limiting the fuel and forcing drivers to choose between higher turbo boost and fuel economy. Quoted from the official forums.

As @Mogster said, 100% (or anything above 70%) is for qualifying only.

Furthermore, as @Trezoitao38 said, in race trim and if you do a proper long race, you shouldn't ever use more than 70% because of fuel consume problems. Refuelling was not permitted back then and so you had to keep your turbo pressure low. Many drivers would also coast and shortshift before braking points to lower the fuel consume even more. This whole thing has been nicely recreated in Eurogamer.it new Lotus 98T championship, where top drivers are "forced" to shortshift, use low pressure and coast before braking zones, to save fuel (the league is on full length GP races). You use higher turbo pressure only very very rarely if you need to overtake

MAZDA 787B!!!!!  ;D

In the showroom? I dont see a track suggestion.  :P

Barbagallo    I've done lots of laps with the old Mod Mazda there and it suits the car well. The Mazda needs a smooth track surface, really disliked bumpy tracks.  Plus a lap is only like 40 seconds  ;D

Enjoyable race. No accidents, no mistakes, some strategic choices and good, close racing.

Good summary of my race. Lucked into a good setup early on so knew a clean run would result in some decent points. Had great battles with a number of drivers including Joe, Jeremy, Nith and Shayne to name a few. With Freezer also getting some points even after suffering technical difficulties, it turned out to be a good race for Maki Engineering.

From the weather forecast website:


The track surface of The Catalunya Circuit tends to be quite rough and will take its toll on the F1 tyres. Those Formula 1 drivers who have been struggling with tyre wear over the course of the Formula one Grand Prix season may find this a challenging track

If I use a microscope I might be able to read the weather forecast Wally  ;D

Yeah LADA's for all!

I'm not sure I'm a porsche driver at this point, the car is very unfriendly if you make small mistakes.  And I do - due to lack of practice.   It almost feels like I'm back to playing iRaping.

I found the car to be very setup dependent. More so than other cars we've raced. Without the right setup its nearly impossible for me to stay on track.

Really? A few of us found it was no different to default. At least in times. I'm running full default.

It must be my driving style then, which is why I did not vote for the VW beetle!

Good start for Maki Engineering, hopefully DA Racings's woes will continue  ;D

Race 1 started well but had to get out of Nith way at the long double apex corner, saw him approaching at a great rate of knots in the mirrors  and got out of the way  rather than risk a collision on lap 1.  This caused me to lose a spot or two. Hell bend on revenge I set after Nith vouching to make him pay! Unfortunately he was just too quick and revenge would have to wait until race 2.

Race two a couple of cars came between me and Nith to foil my revenge but I persisted. Then lap17 it all changed. A small mistake from Nith at T2 unsettled Kcender, who proceeded to test the tire cones resilience while allowing me to fly past Nith......revenge  :P

Those big black bollards are going to claim a few victims. Turn 2 through to the chicane needs some decent commitment to getting close to the bollards to carry good speed through there, and they don't move if you hit them!

The latter part of the track is killing my laptimes, the last corner I find especially fustrating. As for the bollards after extensive testing I can without doubt state that they are made out of reinforced concrete. Will be leaving a bit of a margin of error during the race  ;D

bmw 235i season

Not a bad idea actually, still one of my favorite public server cars

As much as these cars can be fun to drive, I wouldn't say they're fun to race.  5 laps is a warmup not a sprint and certainly not a race.  I agree I'd take a race car over a supercar any day.
I don't think the front tyres would be fairing to well with more than 5 laps...! 
Found the Ferrari balanced and chuckable, the RUF  . . . does it have front wheels? certainly doesn't like to turn!
GT3 was pretty good if driven porsche style.  Then there's the Nissan which was probably the choice of what I tried.

I found the Nissan's performance dropped off rapidly the last lap or so, not sure I would have lasted in a longer race with GTR.  The RUF is for me  :)

Just one question - we had 3-4 goes at the third race - does this happen in the series too - or just fun runs?

Dangerous question, lets just stick with a resounding NO RESTARTS ON TUESDAYS!!!  ;D

Had some fun racing. What stood out for me is the different driving styles required between the cars. The Alfa's smooth long drifts compared to the hyperactive BMW  :) Maybe we should do sprint races with compulsory random car changes between races.
