R1: Jul 25, Brands Hatch Indy [OSRW EXTRA PITS MOD], 17 laps + 39 laps

Make sure you download the OSRW Extra Pits Mod and install it in your Brands Hatch track. It won't affect AC's original track.

Everyone starts with 0 restrictor for this entire round.

Weather is 24 and cloudy in race 1, 26 and clear in race 2, with moderate winds.

We'll have a full-length practice race in preparation for season 18, at Paul Ricard WTCC [DOWNLOAD]

There will be qualifying at 8:30pm (eastern), followed by race 1 (8 laps), and then race 2 (19 laps).
The race 2 start order will be set in order of fastest race 1 lap times.

Just for this practice race, I'll also set a reducing amount of restrictor from 100% down to 0% in order of race 1 finish position, so we'll see how race 2 pans out. Hopefully it will give some good close racing.

Weather:
Race 1 - 30 degrees, clear, wind 18 kmh WNW
Race 2 - 33 degrees, clear, wind 32 kmh WNW

Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / "Meet The Driver"
« on: July 10, 2017, 09:11:41 PM »
In the inaugural interview of a new feature "Meet the driver", we’re profiling XGN racer Shayne (formerly known as Hylas).
Shayne joined XGN in season 11 in August 2016, where we raced the Toyota 86. Shayne finished his first season in a very creditable 8th position, in a field of 28 racers. From there, his career progression has been:

Season 11 (Toyota 86) – 8th
Season 12 (Ferrari 312/Lotus 72) – 6th
Season 13 (Jap Pack) – 7th
Season 14 (Maserati GT4) – 4th
Season 15 (Praga R1) – 25th (Only ran in 4 races)
Season 16 (Porsche GT3 Cup) – 5th
Season 17 (Lotus Exos) – 7th
 
Shayne’s season results are very consistent across a variety of cars, between 4th and 8th, with the Maserati GT4 bringing him his best result. He’s had 82 races. His solitary race win was in the Nissan Skyline R34 at Tsukuba in 2016, finishing just 0.35 seconds in front of Matthew111.
 
We asked Shayne a few questions:
 
XGN: What is your favourite track?
Shayne: Probably Spa, I really enjoy Imola and Nurburgring as well but I never do well at either of them. I don't really race outside of our league races so a lot of tracks that I have little knowledge of, do come as a surprise to me and I can find I really like a track that I've rarely seen before. As it stands, Spa stands out as the most favourite.
 
XGN: What is your favourite style of car to race and why?
Shayne: Similar story as the favourite track, I don't get through testing a lot of them so chances are there's going to be one that I haven't done many laps with that could end up being a favourite. I do enjoy open wheelers, I was really hoping that the 98T was picked for last season as that was a blast in practice. Also the season where we had the older Lotus 72D Vs Ferrari 312 ? I don't remember the models exactly, but that season was very enjoyable. I really enjoy them older open wheelers where throttle control can make or break your race at any one turn.
 
XGN: Who do you most like to beat?
Shayne: Now this is the question! This answer has actually changed as time has gone by. Initially it was you for a long time Wally :P
The idea behind it, is that I mostly want to beat the guy that's just in front or just behind me most of the time. As we have gained more members, I find there's always someone moving into that space that I want to beat more then anyone else. Last season it was ab156 but this season could be different. Sometimes I really try to beat Mael but it depends on the cars, some cars I have a chance and other cars he just always has that little bit extra. I still always look to try to place ahead of you Wally, but as the field has grown. It's become very busy around our speed so I try to qualify as fast as possible and hope that those around my speed end up fighting each other so I can try make a gap.

Season 18 will be in the Ford Escort 1600.

Format
Two sprints per round: race 1 about 15 mins after qualifying, race 2 about 35 mins, with the starting order set by the order of race 1 fastest lap times. Race 2 is double points.

No tyre warmers. No compulsory pit stops.

Balancing the field
Each round from round 2, the top half of the field according to the championship points, will all get the same amount of restrictor, such as 20% decreasing restrictor will be applied from 100% down to 0 across the whole field (e.g. 100,95,90,85...0) according to the championship standings, to close up the field and give backrunners a better shot at being up the pointy end.

Schedule
R1: Jul 25, Brands Hatch Indy [OSRW EXTRA PITS MOD], 17 laps + 39 laps
R2: Aug 1, Riverside Spike [DOWNLOAD], 9 laps + 21 laps
R3: Aug 8, Tsukuba [DOWNLOAD], 14 laps + 32 laps
R4: Aug 15, Bridgehampton [DOWNLOAD], 8 laps + 19 laps
R5: Aug 22, Vallelunga [OSRW EXTRA PITS MOD], 8 laps + 18 laps

- 2 week break while I'm away on holidays -

R6: Sep 12, Nurburgring Sprint GT [OSRW EXTRA PITS MOD], 9 laps + 20 laps
R7: Sep 19, Barbagallo [DOWNLOAD], 13 laps + 31 laps

Points
30 down to 1.
1 point for pole position.
1 point for fastest lap in each race.

Race 2 is double points. Worst round is dropped.

Penalties
70 kg ballast is applied for the first race only of the next round for causing lap 1 grief (or 10 second post-race 1 penalty in the final round). 70 kg should equate roughly to a 5 to 10 second penalty over the whole of race 1.

Hardware & Reviews / Nvidia surround settings
« on: July 06, 2017, 09:41:54 PM »
Hey GW, here is my setting. I have dragged the monitors in the control panel into the same order as the numbers identify on my physical monitors.

For monitors 2, 3 and 1, I have HDMI, DVI, DVI.

This will be a fun run of 3 sprints where we can try the three season 18 cars before you cast your vote.

Track: Silverstone National
Race length: 13 laps

The pre-race practice session will have all three cars so you can try them all, then the races will be one car at a time with a brief qualifying session each: AE86, Escort, Celica.

8
As usual, you can vote for more than one car.

There will be a fun run where we can try each of the three cars.

Congratulations to the season champion - Matthew111, who takes out his 3rd championship. Kcender87 put in a good fight with a late charge, finishing only 10 points shy of Matthew, and Joe had a slow but steady climb up the championship standings to be on the podium at the pointy end.

Is anyone away on holidays for the school holidays in the coming weeks? When can we start the next season (from July 18)?

11
For the next season, I'm keen to try a multi-class season, something like:
  • New - Porsche 919 Hybrid/Toyota TS040 Hybrid/Audi R18 e-tron versus Chevrolet Corvette C7R/Ferrari 458 GT2/McLaren 650S GT3/Ferrari 488 GT3
  • Old - Porsche 911 GT1-98/Porsche 962 C Long Tail/Mercedes-Benz C9 1989 LM versus Porsche 908 LH/BMW M3 E30 Group A/Ford GT40
Or for a more relaxing change of pace from the Lotus 125, a more sedate single-make season with cars like:
  • Toyota Celica ST185 4WD Turbo (tarmac rally)
  • BMW 1M stage 3
  • Ford Escort RS1600 (new live axle physics)
  • Toyota AE86 Tuned (new live axle physics)
Thoughts?

23 laps (at 12:00 pm) + 16 laps (at 3:00 pm).

Weather Forecast: (long range outlook is 18 degrees, with moderate winds)

The track doesn't come with DRS zones, but I have added some - on the start/finish straight and another on the back straight.
You will need to copy the ini file attached to this post into your content\tracks\doningtonpark\gp\data folder, or DRS won't work.

Penalties
Race 1  - none.

Race 2:
  • Freezer ran into the back of Slow_As at turn 1 when there was a big pack of slow cars in front of them both, pushing Slow_As off track – penalty, as Freezer entered turn 1 too fast.
  • Simone ran into the side of Freezer exiting turn, but was three wide with Seanus. I think this was a case of being unsighted, side by side. Although it ended messily, I don’t think anyone could have avoided that – racing incident.
  • RussG ran in too deep inside Grat when the pass wasn’t there, and caused an incident to a group of cars behind – penalty.

Penalties
Race 1
  • Bacchulum ran into the back of Wally, penalty.
  • Kcender ran into the back of Matthew, penalty.
Race 2
  • DaveO drifted into the side of Seanus and sent himself spiralling through the air, but he then landed on top of Doobs, so I think that warrants a penalty, because Dave’s mistake had a big impact on Doobs.
  • Jeremy moved across the track before turn 2 and ran into the side of Shayne, penalty.
  • Slow_As hit the side of Bacchulum, but that was a 3 wide, unsighted collision, racing incident.
  • Freezer hit the side of the slow Matthew. A messy sequence here, but Freezer could have backed off behind Slow_As. A lesser penalty of 15% restrictor.
  • RussG ran into the back of Seanus, but Seanus was in the middle of a moment after being unsettled by the kerb, no penalty.
