This round sees us at Thruxton, "the fastest circuit in the UK" (where I can afford a Mustang).
The races are 13 laps.

Track link: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/thruxton.6192

It's cold in England again - 11, 13 and 15, and cloudy.

Congratulations to Freezer on his first pole of the season, and to Joe for all 3 race wins and the overall round win, which sees him take the lead in the championship standings.

This round kept the race stewards busy!

Race 1
Turn 1 – Joe drifted a little wide and tagged the front right corner of Bird, sending him slightly to the left. Bird was slowly turning the corner, when ab156 re-entered the track from running a bit wide on the left to the side of Bird, and Bird just tagged the right rear corner of ab156, turning him around and causing a chain reaction. It was a fairly slow sequence of events and I can’t really put definitive blame on anyone, so I’m calling that a racing incident.

Race 2
The front row had 2 Abarths on it, and the second row had two Nissans on it. The Nissans both took off faster than the Abarths, and both decided to pass on the middle, colliding with each other. Killagorilla was a little further back then Bueller, and should have seen him occupying the gap first and backed off - $300 penalty.

RussG drove into the back of Killagorilla in T1 and spun him - $300 penalty.

Rob missed the apex and drove into the side of Killagorilla spinning him - $300 penalty.

Race 3
Ab156 ran into the rear left of Bird mid-corner and spun him - $300 penalty.

Phil hit the rear right of Bird in the final turn, spinning him - $300 penalty.

The next round is at Modena (fast layout), a tighter, twistier track.Track: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/autodromo-di-modena.5346 (note there has been a version 3.2 released; a lot of us probably still have version 3.1).

19 lap races.

The weather will be 11, 15 and 16 degrees.

Assetto Corsa Competizione / XGN Online Server
« on: March 11, 2019, 05:05:53 PM »
I've set up an XGN ACC server on the host I use to host the car dealer website, just for fun/experimentation. It's called "XGNACC www.xgn.com.au". You can find it in the server list by searching for "XGNACC".
It's only a t2.micro instance, so may be underpowered.

It's just on a 10 min Prac/Qual/Race cycle.

Assetto Corsa Competizione / Hotlap leaderboards
« on: March 10, 2019, 10:20:30 AM »
The hotlap leaderboards are a nice feature. Same conditions for everyone, conditions reset after each lap. In the Nissan @ Monza, I'm ranked #3,118.
That's an impressive number of people in the rank for one combo.

Congratulations to Phil on pole and two out of the three race wins at a track that suited the speed of the Mustang, with Joe winning race 1 in a Nissan.

Lap 1 Penalties
In race 3, ab156 and Freezer came together, with ab156 coming off worst, but if anything ab156, who came from behind, squeezed Freezer a bit in the corner, so no penalty.

Three 15 lap sprints at Silverstone International.
It is cold at Silverstone. 11 and 12 degrees and windy.

Race 3 at Paul Ricard was Bacchulum's 300th Tuesday night league race  8)
Well done Bacchulum.

Congratulations to me on pole and three race wins. Prior to this round, I've had 5 wins out of 342 races!

Lap 1 Penalties
Race 1
The turn 1 impacts are a bit hard to unravel. Bradc was turning in tight from the left of track, and moved too far to the inside of the corner. At the same time, RussG was under locked brakes on the inside and hit the side of Brad, and then on into ab156, spinning him. Because ab156 was so disadvantaged, a half fine of $150 goes to each of Brad (for not staying on his side of the track in turn 1) and Russ (for hitting Brad under locked brakes).

BradC ran into the back of Killagorilla and spun him - $300 fine.

Race 2
Impact between BradC and AbleArcher was side by side mid-corner – racing incident.

The first round of the "rent a sports car" season sees the entry level Nissan Skyline, BMW Z4 and Ford Mustang battling it out at Paul Ricard WTCC.

Three sprints of 11 laps. The (real world) weather is cool... 15, 18 and 18 degrees.

Track downloads are here: https://xgnsimracing.com.au/season/schedule
Car dealer (rent a car by 6:00pm Tuesday) is here: https://xgnsimracing.com.au/car-dealer

Sign ups are open for season 27 - "Rent a sports car and drive it like you stole it". The season starts MARCH 5.

To sign up, head over to the CAR DEALER and sign up (if you haven't logged in yet, you login with your GUID, e.g. 7656119xxxxxxxxxx, which is your steam ID or also in AC's race.ini. If in doubt, PM me and I'll tell you your GUID).

(from dearest to cheapest)
Lotus Evora S
BMW 1M Stage 3
Alfa Romeo 4C
Abarth 500 Assetto Corse
Ford Mustang 2015
BMW Z4 E89 Step1
Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec

Paul Ricard WTCC
Silverstone International
Modena Fast
Oulton Park International (No Chicane)

You can check out the season schedule here.

The format's going to be like the trial season: 3 sprints, with races 2 and 3 in order of the previous results. There is an entrance fee of $300 each round (so the leaders won't necessarily be able to stay in the same car forever). There is the same fee deducted from your earnings for damage to the car, and a fine for causing an opening lap incident.

25, 22, 20, 19, 18... etc down to 1.
1 point for pole position; 1 point for fastest race lap.

Abarth 500 Assetto Corse's at Knockhill 2017 - a few 15 lap sprints.

TRACK: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eFB0EgfIwfahscB1KVML0ySIKES5xotS/view?usp=sharing

A track where fortune favours the brave!

The practice server is up with a bunch of varied cars, which should give some good mixed racing, at Brands Hatch:

Abarth 500 Assetto Corse
Alfa Romeo 4C
BMW 1M Stage 3
BMW Z4 E89 Step1
Ford Mustang 2015
Lotus Evora S
Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec

I've thrown on a bit of ballast to try to compress the lap times a bit. Put some lap times in, and let's see how the cars stack up here:

Next week's fun run is just going to be a few 6 lap sprints where you can jump in and out of a few different cars. No sign up or car renting required - just turn up.

Practice is going to be all the cars combined.
Race 1 - choose one of the Nissan, BMW Z4 or Mustang.
Race 2 - Mustang, Alfa, Abarth.
Race 3 - Abarth, BMW 1M, Lotus.

Next Tuesday is the final round of the Porsche car dealer trial season.

What I want to change after this trial is:
  • Not have people be able to afford the faster cars as quickly (by reducing the earnings), and
  • Charge a nominal entry fee each round from your funds, such that the top 1 and 2 place getters actually have their bank balances go backwards a little bit. This means that you won't be able to get to afford a fast car and then just keep it for the rest of the season, if you keep winning in it.
Then I want to have a "proper" 7 or 8 week season, using the updated car dealer. The thing will be to choose some cars. I want to use the following 1 or 2 weeks to try some car combos, just for fun. We need 5 to 7 cars or thereabouts, that need to be pretty close in speed but still have a range of speeds, and cars that don't need a huge amount of setup would be good too. Maybe just use a single make and apply a range of restrictor to create a spread of speeds? That would give closer times but be less interesting.

So put your thinking caps on and suggest some car combos. You can use my car ranking times here as a guide.

Here's some ideas:

A mixed bag of "racy" cars, with all sort of different characteristics:
Lotus 2-Eleven GT4 (66400)
Alfa Romeo 155 TI V6 (65700)
Mercedes-Benz 190E EVO II (65300)
BMW M3 E30 Gr.A 92 (64800)
BMW M235i Racing (64100)
Ford GT40 (63800)

Or street cars, with limited setup:
Lotus Evora S (57200)
Alfa Romeo 4C (56300)
Abarth 500 Assetto Corse (55800)
BMW 1M Stage 3 (54300)
Ford Mustang 2015 (53500)
BMW Z4 E89 Step1 (52700)
Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec (52200)
