A great movie about a lesser known Australian motorsport legend, Alfredo Costanzo.


He is hardly ever mentioned now days, but I remember dad talking about him in the '70s, in his rise.
It also shows how F1 is not always the best drivers in the world, just the one's with access to money (looking at you Lance).

It's probably best to regard me as away indefinitely at the moment.
I'll try to make what races I can, if and when I'm up to it, but don't hold your breath.

Real Life Motorsport / S5000

Anyone else keen to see this get started this weekend?
I'm stoked Rubinho came over, and he seems to be getting to grips with it:
“In the first session the car was definitely taking me around, and in the second session I was taking more control. And the smile comes to my face. It’s a great feeling to be able to conquer the world.”

Results: S5000 Practice 2, Sandown

Good reviews, nice screenshots, my first 7 laps felt good. 8)

Technically it's a Formula RSS 3 V6, but they're giving it away for free:


And if you like open wheelers their other cars are well worth the price. ;)

A great, fictional short track which looks good and drives well:

It might be worth getting there early (for those going) to see the Season Launch:


Whether you'll see anything or just stand around in crowd, who knows, but it's free.

For everyone who likes long tracks, here's a memory test. 8)
72 kms of more than 800 corners. :o
It's a very early alpha but the road itself is good, just no environment to speak of.
My PB is 44m35.2s in a Toyota GT86 (I've only done one lap (hotlap to make the first one count)). :-X


Assetto Corsa / AC Track Grip
« on: July 07, 2018, 02:20:55 PM »
Once upon a time, a Thursday I believe, there was a discussion between Wally, Seanus and myself about track grip.
I felt the racing line had more grip while Wally and Seanus assured me it was placebo, and the track grip was homogeneous.
To paraphrase, "AC's track grip is not that sophisticated".

I must be missing something or I'm very susceptible to placebo.
Drive the wet version of Goodwood (link below) and tell me the grip level is homogeneous.
That the slippery puddles are placebo. ???

I still believe that track grip can be variable and therefore a grippier racing line is possible. :-\

Fake Wet layout is included for wet track placebo, don't be surprised that it is so slippery, 1"50 is a fast laptime at Goodwood when it is wet. Use alternative lines to get more grip, optimum lines has less grip. Pretty much first time in simracing when you'll have to search for grip in circuit :)

I came across this whilst fishing, and thought I'd share it.
It's very appropriate for Tuesday, as the F1 era this year is 73-80. 8)
If you fish at the same pond I do you'll easily find it. ;)
If not, I'm uploading a zip now, but it's 6 hours of footage so that'll take a while.

I'll update when it's done.
