I turned my first laps in anger with the Audi in the half hour leading up to the race. Was just interested in getting a good race setup and making the car pretty forgiving to drive. I felt by the end of practice I'd achieved that and was looking forward to the race. I did enjoy the rolling start but the first lap incident was a little frustrating but that's racing. I thought the 5 min penalty was a bit rough but it's a game thing and can't be changed. I made myself a drink, re-grouped and just set out to understand the car better. I was pretty happy with the race pace of the car and there was definitely more in it. I think I did my best lap in the last few laps of the race but still some tuning to do yet.

Just a note to the GT cars, stay on line so it's more predictable and when we pass coming into a slow corner and please dont try and stick it back up the inside again, happened twice into the slow chicane and I went off track to avoid the collision since I was a few laps down anyway.

All things considered, it was a fun night and bring on next week.

Condolences to Kcender for being paired up with me......I think you'll be getting the bulk of the points for us

nah ---- ill flick you some Team Rollin' Coal setups and we shall blitz the field!

On that - what is the sign I should be getting and where would it be in VR (I have to look around even for flags :P) to tell me im cutting?

I also run with VR, and I have the warning thing sitting kinda of on the bonnet, so it's very clear when that red dot pops up I know I need to slow down before re-entering.

I see now the issue is that i didnt have any apps open....next time - of course just staying on track would help too but chasing the 919 means my diesel needs all the help it can get :P

Enjoyed that - once everyone gets used to the speed differentials it should be great - stress of battling after an hour on old tyres while trying not to lose Grat who has a billion hp on the straights while overcoming traffic takes some focus but is damn good fun - if only I had have read my own abbreviations correctly I would have added 15 L(aps) of fuel not 15 L(itres) and would have overcome all those PLP penalties :P Surely its still track until its wall and/or grandstand right.....? :P

AUDI E-tron LMP1 for me thanks - should balance out the car selection for the class :)

sign me up to LMP1 class - still undecided between the Audi and the 'yota

Finish of race 2.  Well done Kcender, great fun.



Great race man - good times - knew that would be a drag race at the end and just bet on hopefully having more grip on the outside :P

Thanks everyone for the season and Wally for admining!

Sorry guys - thought the wheel would be back and operational but the relay we are waiting on to repair the servo drive is still didnt arrive today - enjoy!

Unfortunately cannot complete :( Argon in the OSW has decided to start sending 300v to the earth cable and not the wheel motor ... which makes for .... 'shocking' force feedback....

Ill see myself out :P

I just couldn't keep up, I would get past people in corners and then get passed on the straights or was held up in corners and lost it down the straights losing even more time, half way through race 1 I knew it was going to be a dropped round and just did laps

I know I was one of those drivers where you had that scenario.

If anyone has Race 2 replay files would be greatly appreciated. I've got the settings sorted out now so should be right in the future. Had some great close racing with KCender87; finished with a 0.07s margin (he trumped me). snagged this out of the 2 minutes of replay footage I saved locally.

That was a rather stressful sprint to the line - I knew I had noting up the straight - my only hope was to make you weave a little more than I did :P good race sir

Last night was the first time I had used Oculus Rift in AC, actually just got it delivered last Friday and had used it in iracing on the weekend for the 24hr lemans. It was quite an experience to have VR running last night in the close battles that I was involved in. Really exciting stuff!
Cool! You mind me asking what GPU you are using and how it goes with Oculus? I have a 980 and I fear it would not be enough...

From my understanding you'd be ok. You'd probably have to turn a few settings down to get the 90fps, but AC isn't really that demanding on GPU.

Yep - I second that - Rift here too but running on gtx970 - whack most of the setting down as I find it less important to read signs and count blades of grass than having silky 90fps - 980 will be fine sir

Q1 and R1

Had 25% sock in the intake so ran williams spec slippery low downforce set (literally 0 rear wing) to try to find some speed on the straights. Sadly with the wind blowing another way, I lost any wind based assistance in sector 2 and all the high downforce sets gains some help in 1 and 3 putting me well off the pace.

It was all for the best though delivering a 16 lap battle with Phil - we were swapping positions every lap (more than once per lap often) and managed to run side by side through every turn but for Eau Rouge and Pouhon - ended in a drag to the line out of the final new bus stop with the grip going to phil on the outside line - best racing ive had in a long time - bumped wheels a few times which was great too.

R2

Took that sock out of the intake and magically changed the direction of the wind and the car was a rocket - 303 up Kemmel with no DRS and fair grip in sector 2. Massive run out of Raidillon on lap one grabbed the lead and was luckily able to hold it.

Great week- thanks for the race fellas

Hey all - mic was dead during race for some reason :P I think good race all round but for my self induced off through the compression on final turn in race one. Then found a big impact after turn one a few laps later after avoiding a sausage kerb victim :P

race 2 - not sure if my fault turn 1 exit? I was in the middle of 3 wide and suddenly the gap wasnt as wide as the car and closed before i could nail the brakes to pull out - Ill let the stewards investigate that one :P Otherwise good run to the finish and good run with Matt over final 2 laps for 2nd....which he got :P

To Belgium!
