I reckon vr would be best in single seater ?

100% sit nice n low its great in a cabin but far better somehow in single seaters and open cockpits

That thing is proper fun especially in VR with an arm breaking wheel - battles in both race 1 and 2 were great, looking out the side or seeing the car dancing in the mirrors with the sounds while trying to keep it on the track is whats its all about - also, I have left a mildy disgusting 5mm deep puddle of batty sweat in the crease of the seat

How anyone drove those for 2 hours and managed to climb out and give an interview is beyond me :S

I have a problem :( Practice makes perfect.....ly sure I learn to make the same mistake consistently lap after lap :P

Got disconnected race 1 which made race two easy  ;D

The real disappointment was race 3. I really wanted to make KCender work for the win, he usually overtakes me waaayy too easy. Sadly I threw it away on the short downhill corner (Revolver corner?) to gift the lead to him. Still steaming about it. Well done Kcender, the pressure was too much.

Was a good race man - was disappointed when I saw the big tank-slapper down the hill - was enjoying the tussle :)

Oh shit! :P didn't even realise that had happened Shayne - my bad entirely sorry. Lag karma took its revenge a lap later - how I didn't notice that in the race I have no idea :s

   
  • Kcender ran into the back of Shayne and spun him (the lag jump was at the start of race 2 – this lap 1 incident looked nice and smooth) – 50 kg penalty.
   

I think I recall this on lap 1 and I stand to be corrected (as I dont have the reply only my memory :P ) - but I recall a situation where I was uber close to a car in front that then it had an off but I immediately looked up to the left to see if there was contact and saw none and thought contact must have been made laterally or that they had a moment on their own?

This is the incident:

Sorry for the weird warping all over the place - ping was about 27 every time I looked - will see if i can sort whats up for next time

...it should be on a wheel alignment rig imo lol
If you're in doubt, what I do is go to a modern F1 track, KS laser-scanned, ie. Silverstone or Spa, as the FIA have enforced level pit lanes recently. ;)
It's the best you're gonna get.

Im in sirs

Am I correct that the 2015 Porsche runs a different KERS capacity at (i think) 8 megajoules where the Audi etc are in the 4 megajoule category so the Porsche can deploy more Thor power for longer per lap? #continues to dig for more excuses ahead of Tuesday....*

To my mind its just a question of predictability when passing. LMP1 are so much more capable than the GT3s and can place the care basically where ever they want on a corner and not lose too much time - the GT3s (especially in fast corners) bog down and fall off the pace massively if they arent on line. From the cockpit of the LMP1, if I am coming up on a GT3, I am expecting them to be running their own race and I do not expect them to dive off line into the woods until I roll through on my line. I expect they will stay on line which allows me to plan a safe pass with the confidence that they will brake where they normally brake and place the car at certain points of the track so that when I shoot the LMP1 through that point of the track, a GT3 wont suddenly appear :P

I think the problems arise (maybe largely owing to the amount of discussion and concern around the topic) when a GT3 driver already caught up in running his own race catches a glimpse of a swarm of LMP1 cars approaching at a million miles an hour, doesnt want to be the cause of complaints / cause of a ruined LMP1 race and tries desperately to dive out of the way for them. From the LMP1 car we see an unpredictable big chunk of car doing strange things so we all start making poor decisions as a result then explosions happen and everyone dies / jumps on forums :P

Both classes are running their own races and both cannot reasonably be expected to give up 3 seconds slowing to a crawl then casually overtaking / allowing an overtake - especially 7 times per car per race. Secondly, the overtaking car is always in a better position to 'drive both cars' and determine when the overtake occurs and it should be their sole responsibility to execute this safely. This system begins to fail where LMP1 are unable to predict when the slower car is going to dive off line in a well intentioned attempt to allow the pass (which is appreciated). The overtaking car cannot then in any way predict when someone will dive off line and cannot safely plan an overtake resulting in split second decision making.

If GT3 drives its own race and stays on line, drives as fast as it can braking as per normal and turning in as per normal (unless a chuck of car is on the apex...you know...as you normally would), LMP1 can more easily determine safe passing moments that will not impact their race or require them to get off line - everyone wins...what could go wrong :P

Wondering why it went quiet, good racing with you all. Couple of times I'd passed a GT3 thinking they'd stay on the race line, however I took the wrong side and ended up squeezing past with tyres on the grass, hope I didn't cause any problems with you guys when that happened. There was also one other time when I did exactly that but when coming back onto the racing line I ended up with an LMP1 on my bonnet, not sure how or why, I think it was kcender, I don't recall seeing anything on my radar it happened so fast, but very sorry that happened. Nearing the end I could grat gaining and didn't want to get lapped so switched over to high preserve and it was just enough to stay on the lead lap and take a place off drdinkum.
Thanks to all for great race

Lol - if the other LMP1 car went spinning up the kemmel straight and almost took off that was me :P I arrived on you and the GT3 at fair rate of knots and went left at raidillon then I think oyu must have gone right and we both arrived at the same tarmac at the kink - was the lightest of touches but 300kph adds some fun to those :P all good but i broke my right window :(
