I was struggling with setup and not below a 1:55 before the race.. thanks for the setup advice guys, got it down to a 1:53.7 in practise but couldn't get below a 1:54 for qualifying.. ended up 19th on the grid and spent the first half of the race just keeping ahead of rob and passing those that spun off, I think we were down to 13th or 11th at one stage, decided to pit on end of lap 14 which pushed me back a few spots.  I managed to hold off russg and a few others throughout the race for a lap or 2 but got a 10 second penalty and my tyres were bad so russg managed to get around from my spin but it appears his time penalties were more than mine so I finished 17th. pb during the race was a 1:53.054 so I was pretty happy with that time with a joystick.

congrats Marty for the win.

At least you didn't lose a position while letting the lead group through.. I had no choice.. so many cars and one of them was a car going for position.. dont even know who., just saw my place number drop as this mass pack went through.  :-\

Struggled for the first few laps with the lack of grip.  I was doing ok trying to keep rob off my tail until I starting getting hot and losing concentration. I ended up getting loose and slamming my side into one of the black tyre barriers, killed both f/r left side suspension, limped it to the pits for repairs and continued on to the end of the race. Managed a PB of a 1:30.6 for the first session.

Second race I was doing well until too many starting pushing it after the first corner on the first lap and I got sandwiched, damaged the car but was ok to continue.. then by the end of the first lap it went from bad to worse.. slammed into Grat who was spinning, I tried to avoid him but in the end had nowhere to go.. back in the pits once again.. made up a few positions from quitters and a PB of 1:29.6 during the race. I ended up passing guys on their lead lap under a blue flag because they were slowing me down..

Hope that the default tracks prove better grip for the porsche.  Starting to think we need tougher penalties for 1st lap offenders because it doesn't seem to discourage some people from trying to shove their way through on cold tyres.

Thanks Seanus and Wally  8)

Phil the colour variations are good, i just mean size of the font should match on all. it just means some names wont fill the length of the banner and that's fine.

Keep the point size the same for every banner. It looks neater and it will be clearer to read in a video for sure.

Yeah the font is a Porsche font but point size is different for each name depending on its length.
I tried to pick up the car's colours for the banners but some of the dark on dark are abit hard to read. On my list as one of the things to optimise if not this season then in future.

Tom and I would like a team pls..

He wants to call it Fast & Furious Racing,

because he's fast and im furious lol.

guess that means to give him the same skin as me pls.

Looks good Seanus, with the window banners though, they would look neater and clearer if every name was not just the same font but also the same size, no stretching etc.. If I can get the program working I will go back to making videos. I'd like to make them of this season.  It's harder to read if they are all too different..

Just a thought but if these are required for season 16, it might be a good idea to add them to the sign up thread, then ignorance is no excuse.

And if we're allowing custom skins I'd like this one please.


As much as these cars can be fun to drive, I wouldn't say they're fun to race.  5 laps is a warmup not a sprint and certainly not a race.  I agree I'd take a race car over a supercar any day.

the rx7 to me is a drift car its not for racing..  the difference in the power to weight ratio is only part of the equation so I wouldn't categorise it on that alone.

I've yet to be in a GT3 season, I like the idea of a mixed make series.  I struggle with understeer in any car, as much as I like the supercars for a season I'm finding they steer like a dog for me.  My setups need work to compensate for what the joystick lacks, but that can only go so far. 

For the supercars the 2  McLarens have the same specs, why not put them both in? Is there something I am missing in difference between them other than the 650 looks better.

if there's any issues with Croft, perhaps Cadwell Park would be a good substitute?

The poll finishes on the 8th and the season starts on the 7th?  And we have a fun run on the 7th.. Did you need a scotch too Wally? :)

As long as the poll finishes on a Friday before the Season start to allow for practise I'd be happy.

Sign me up though please.

I agree with Wally. the MX-5, as much as it's slower, the racing is a lot closer and a little easier to fight back. Not always so easy to pass though.  Perhaps an official track will yield better results for the porsche gt3 cup cars. I've driven it offline on a green track and never found it to be anywhere near as loose.

I still think racing the porsche gt3 will separate the field too much. If we are going to race it then I'd rather see it mixed with the other gt3 cars assuming its still in spec with them?
