Honestly, I haven't gone off track yet, hence my testing suggestion.
Could it possibly be as simple as the Baskerville pit wall issue? ???

I forgot. :-[
But when I joined the server this morning the "P6" in the name reminded me. ;)

Might even pull some Tuesday crowd. ;)

Think of it as "in season testing".
(yes, that did exist at one point :o )

Cool. 8)
I love the way you can hear how hard the camera car is going, whilst the F1 cars are almost idling to keep in shot. ;)
Imagine what Lewis would be saying..... ;D

I am happy to test that track on a Thursday in the f40, porche and old lambos, but cannot get the link to work,  I would test this week if you think it would suit the cars I am running, or I can change it around this week and will run the old cars and this track if someone can post a link that works

Race 12: Austria Österreichring
Another OK conversion

I'd really prefer this version over the Red Bull Ring.
The layout is more realistic (even if the graphics are bit down) and the cars feel so much better in their natural environment. 8)
We have time to test it properly before that round, too. ;)

The server also requires the OSRW pit mod for the track, so that could be your missing content. ???

Hey Wally.
I know you're fudging history with the refueling but can we lose the tyre blankets?
They're not that hard on cold tyres and it adds a bit more spice. ;)

Bah. All the quicker guys should be lumbered with the Williams. That'll teach you for so damn quick.  :P :P :P
I'm not one of the quick guys so I'll go with that. ;)
Is that official?
On a Tuesday, yeah.
I normally qualify in the mid to low teens.
Race results are better but that's due to consistency, not speed. ;)

So I'll keep my Brabham. 8)

Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: Thursdays next season ideas

I suppose we should run the "junior" sportscar, after already doing a season in the "senior", Group 7. 8)

I used stick with right foot braking, heel-toe downshifts.
I'm going to have to risk clutchless downshifts as I lost around 1.5-2 sec/lap heel-toeing. :'(
I think the timings are too tight for clutchless shifting?
Just slip the clutch like I do.

You know about my dislike for chicanes, rolling starts and blue flags, well you can toss is heel 'n' toe with that lot too.  >:( :P
What's ruling out heel-toe would rule that out as well.
If there's any lateral force at all (Aqua Minerali & the kink before Rivazza mainly), the car gets very unstable when I lift off the throttle to apply the brake.
I usually overlap the throttle/brake under lateral load to avoid this.
What I did Tuesday was to either brake earlier of lift and coast before the lateral force came in.
The other technique I used was 'hybrid', left foot brake initially and swap feet half way through the braking zone, when I needed to shift.
But I still had to brake early to give me room to swap feet on the brake so I could use the clutch, resulting in reduced retardation during the "foot dance".
Hence, any use of the clutch on downshifts requires right foot braking and extended braking distances. :'(

Updated the first post with details and schedule.

Let me know your car choices!
Ummm, think I'll take the Brabham BT44b, Bacchulum's skin. ;)

Oh, and blue flags were waved every time a faster car approached you, not just for lap down cars. :o
And in the 50's & 60's drivers would often wave others through even if they were on the same lap!
The thought being they would damage their engine, gearbox & tyres and you would pass them later. ;)
