News / Lola T70 & McLaren M1B Re-lives the 1966 Cam-Am Series

Lola T70 &  McLaren M1B Re-lives the 1966 Cam-Am Series.

Thanks to Bacchulum for finding the mod. Season inspired by Humper's urgent request.



Format
We will follow the 1966 CanAm Series tracks, where possible. You never know, someone may model up the Las Vegas Stardust Raceway.


So a 5 round season allowing us to enjoy this new very good mod and wind down to the end of the year with a roaring pre-Xmas Season "AC Legends Pack 8 cars for AC".

All the info.

XGN, Thursday, 8:00pm, racing real cars, not for the faint hearted...

A 6 round season allowing us to enjoy this new very good mod and wind down to the end of the year with a roaring pre-Xmas Season.

The tracks will need Rooshooter acumen, to assist in quality/versions, the track specifics may change.

Two races per round: race 1 about 15 mins after qualifying, race 2 will be ~3 times race 1, with the starting order set by the order of race 1 fastest lap times. Race 2 will have  the "Restrictor" set dependant on race 1 positions.

Balancing the field
As above, setting the restrictor from the race 1 warm-up will allow the car/driver capabilities to be tightly aligned.

Schedule  Current track listings are not finalised, the current listing is lacking "nimble cars" advantages...

R1: Nov 02, 1966 Monza Road Course Download, 7 laps + 22 laps
R2: Nov 09, Mosport Download, 7 laps + 20 laps
R3: Nov 16 , Riverside TBA Download, 6 laps + 18 laps
R4: Nov 23, Road America Download, 6 laps + 19 laps
R5: Nov 30, Mont - Tremblant Download, 7 laps + 20 laps
R6: Dec 07, Silverstone 1967, 7 laps + 20 laps


Points
As per the "Phil.8 system".

Track testing and car familiarisation TBA. 

Just to whet your appetite...

News / 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport by Ghia... lovely!
« on: July 11, 2017, 06:04:39 PM »

It isn’t often that a Best of Show contender at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is restored in an owner’s garage, then hauled cross-country in a borrowed trailer towed by a friend’s truck. Such was the case in 2015, when a stunning 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport by Ghia won the Postwar Early class, on its way to being named as a finalist (one of three) for Best of Show. Two years later, the Abarth heads to auction, at no reserve, part of RM Sotheby’s upcoming Monterey sale.

General Discussion / Windows 10 upgrade over windows 7 home
« on: April 14, 2017, 07:06:30 PM »
updates have not been installing for a long time
I can't upgrade Team Speak because "api-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dl" is missing and will not install
I have attempted to upgrade runtime dlls and now AC will not attempt to load any track combo, on or off line
I have verified my installation and about to 'sideline' this current installation and re download, but.,, this will not fix the bigger problem,

so where from at the best price to install/upgrade my valid Windows 7 Home?
cheers,
