S11R3: Zandvoort race chat
« on: April 20, 2016, 09:37:13 PM »
I have put the server up and will update the weather soon as currently it was just random, I checked forecast and looks like a warm one next week with 29c and partly cloudy in Adelaide next Tuesday with no rain.

I had a few runs with some guy in the practice server, I am using the regular Zandvoort just to make it easier for public to jump in with official content if they are AB rated. Better league promotion too this way and with AB only drivers the driving standards in the server should never get too bad.

This will be a fun round, I have also put my setup in ptracker but its pretty much the same as last round with a slight pressure change. Once I raise the server temps though the pressures will likely need to be dropped down a bit. This is quite a challenging track to pass but it can be done at pretty much every corner, you just need to set it up fairly well and if someone ahead is running a good clean line you need to get fairly creative which is pretty fun.

I think the best defense is really running a normal racing line here as any time someone starts to defend the inside line they give away heaps on exit and they will quite likely be passed easily into the next corner if the guy behind sets up a better exit and run while making sure they keep the inside line.  ;)

I ran a couple practice races last nite, also updated my setup as for the hotter temps it was well over pressure. The track is a fair bit faster at these higher temps as your getting closer to optimum tyre temps there.

Should be fun racing seeing over 10 laps starting 5th driving fairly well I could only gain 4 spots. This I see as a good thing as the guys running were all very competitive and passing is doable but not easy. It will take some patience here but quite likely some up front will run out of it and give the guys at the back a chance. If all ahead run clean I think gaining 6 to 8 spots here over a race will be a pretty good effort.

The weather's trending towards 26 degrees at the moment.

That's bad luck Phil. I hope it gets better. I've got you on the grid anyway.
