Congratulations to Grat on pole, and Matthew for the race and round win.

Lap 1 Penalties
Mael's connection went to rubbish and caused an accident at turn 2, but because it was due to circumstances out of Mael's control, no penalty.

Matthew did an almost unsafe reentry at turn 1 on lap 16, oversteering into the middle of the track causing Phil to have to slow. This is just a caution to be careful about track re-entry into the path of oncoming cars.

I'd like to start getting some opinions about the next season. The two things I'm keen to do is:
  • An open wheeler season (5 weeks) - perhaps choose one of the Lotuses for a single-make season: 25, 49, 72 or 98. I know there are a few mod cars around, but I'd rather stick with "genuine" AC physics, consistent tyre models etc. Single make also reduces the need to balance cars etc.
  • A mixed class season (8 weeks, with a mandatory class swap after 4 weeks). Modern (Porsch 919 vs GT3s) or historic (Porsche 962/Mecr C9/Porsche 911 GT1) vs DTM cars (Merc 190/BMW M3 - Alfa is too fast) or maybe a bit slower (Ford GT40/Porsche 908).
    With mixed classes, I'd want to enforce relatively even numbers in classes, so we don't have 3 919's racing against 20 GT3s for example. The class swap will help with that - everyone gets a go at both classes.

As per this thread, an endurance round at Nordschleife Endurance in a mix of GT cars after the current season (May 9). How long would you like the race to be? You can vote for more than one option.
There would be a long qualifying session from 6:00pm to race start. The longer the race, the shorter the qualifying time.

The season moves to Italy, with a 49 lap enduro round at Magione. You will need the OSRW PIT MOD.

There is a compulsory pit stop, where you must change tyres. Refuelling is not allowed.

Weather Forecast (long range outlook is 24° and sunny).

Congratulations to Grat on pole, Grat and Matthew on the race wins, and Marty for the overall round win.

Lap 1 Penalties
Lots of action for the race stewards to check this round!

Race 1
  • Slow_As braked too late and slid into the side of Seanus, making him lose position - penalty.
  • There was a three-wide corner where Keith had to brake and moved right to avoid Cursed in front, bumping Nith into Seanus. All three cars were pretty much side-by-side at the time and unsighted - racing incident.
  • Bird ran into the rear corner of Freezer after he had made the pass into the esses. It was a close call, but Freezer was in front at that stage - penalty.
  • There was another 3 wide pinball effect between Keith, Cursed and Tom at the final corner - racing incident.
Race 2
  • Freezer ran into the back of Wally - penalty.
  • Kcender ran into the back of Grat - penalty.

Australian Assetto Corsa League, Tuesday nights / Blue Flag Rules
« on: April 11, 2017, 10:49:39 PM »
Here's an excerpt from some real life blue flag rules (my bolding). All interpretations of the blue flag follow this roughly.

If you are shown the blue flag, move off the racing line as soon as possible within reason and make no erratic moves. Pay attention to your mirrors to determine which side the car will pass you. Once the following car is close, slow your speed enough to allow them a safe pass around your car. Do not accelerate until you are sure the following car has past and is clear.

You should aim to let a lapping car past on the next straight, by announcing on TeamSpeak "Go left" or "Go right" and lifting off the throttle. There should be plenty of room to let a lapping car safely past without surprising anyone. There's no need to go extra wide on a corner, or go off track, as that might cause accidents. Just wait until the very next straight (often no more than half a lap away).

Thanks to consistently good results by Phil and Joe, Krahl Racing have powered away in the team standings, with Maki Racing and Infinity + 1 close together in 2nd and 3rd.

It's time to take the Porsches to the high speeds and long straights of Monza. World record lap times are in the 1:50's.
Note this race is on APRIL 4.

2 x 16 lap sprints (no pit stops).
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD installed in the track.

Jimmy and Slow As will have 40 kg penalty ballast (since they didn't race last round where the ballast applied from).

Assetto Corsa / Porsche 911 RSR 2017
« on: March 26, 2017, 09:21:23 AM »
Some interesting insights from Aristotelis:

You're not imagining things. It is a tricky car to drive and even more tricky to setup.
Because of the rear engine placement, the rear diffuser is very limited and shallow. That means that the car creates downforce, mainly from the front splitter and rear wing.
Obviously to go fast, you need good downforce with low drag, and while on all the other cars you can lower the rear wing and have the rear diffuser balancing the car, in the 911 GT3 R, you can't (not enough downforce from the rear diffuser), but you're forced to... and the car becomes unstable.

There's more problems. The car has more weight at the rear, than the other cars. To have a balanced car, you need the tyres to be similar size proportionally to your weight balance. Most cars in GT3 class are around 50 to 47% weight balance at the front. The 911 GT3 R has only 40% weight the front, but it is forced by the regulations to use the fat front tyres. This makes the car unbalanced in mecchanical grip. It might give good turn in, but the car will always stay twitchy and nervous when you go over the limit

Finally, the car has a front fuel tank. This means the weight balance shifts a lot during the race, depending on the fuel level, making the car even more difficult to setup and find the correct compromise. Almost all the other cars have their fuel tank close to the CoG.

Yes, it's a hard car to drive and setup and now you understand why Porsche decided to make the 911 RSR (GTLM class) a mid engine car...

I will be away in Melbourne next Tuesday, and there will be a bye in the season races. Would someone like to organise a fun run while I'm away?
