Oct 9: Feldbergring Enduro [DOWNLOAD]

This will be a single, 50 minute (plus 1 lap) race. You will probably have to pit for fuel and/or tyres. There are no pit restrictions.

Damage will be 50%.

The track is 11.6 km long, so don't leave it too late to start learning the track!

"The Feldbergring race took place every year in Taunus, Germany, from 1920-1928, from 1934-1936, and lastly from 1950-1954. I have made the last version they raced on. The circuit was 11.6km long and held on public roads, with a height differential of 280m. It was used for the German Motorcycle Championship, as well as single-seater sports cars.
 
For 1955, the authorities demanded that a bypass was built around the village of Oberreifenberg, which was not made. This meant the end for the Feldbergring, and as a result of the terrible accident at the 1955 Le Mans race, many motorsport event throughout Europe were cancelled or suspended in subsequent years.

You missing out Russ. What a great track, a sort of rural short green monster. Even just hot lapping is addictive.

So far I'm the quickest with a 4:27 but there a lots of time to gain so get practicing, it will be required!

It will be a small miracle if I finish this race.  :-X


Fuel is no issue, but I'm expecting to have to pit for tyres at some stage.

What a fun and good looking track. Managed to snap part of my clutch spring off though which is a bit distracting. There is about 1cm of travel with no feel before it hits the spring  :-\

How did you break your clutch spring? Jabbing at the clutch pedal with your foot?

I have no idea... There was a weird sound one time when I pushed the clutch in then the pedal felt loose. I looked and the spring doesn't fit the length of the arm anymore. Either a part broke off or it's warped. I won't have time to fix it tonight before Tuesday's race, but I'll take it off and head to bunnings at the weekend and see if I can get a similar spring.

EDIT: Actually just remembered I took a day of leave tomorrow so maybe I can try and fix it before the race  8)

Yeah the spring is definitely snapped in the middle and I now have zero resistance on the clutch. Will need to fix it before tomorrow as the clutch keeps half engaging...

Can you just adjust the clutch pedal min and max range in the AC controller settings?

I did try and  make a few adjustments but the lack of feel in the pedal led me to....

 Don't know about you guy, but every time I pass the Pub in the woods in the uphill section, I get a urge to stop for a cold one and kransky.   :)

Haha, there's a spot there somewhere on this track where I've just got to stop and load the car up with hay bails, every time

I'm not sure whether it will be an issue tonight... but I was running some laps last night and it never seemed to register a time on the tracker. I noticed when circulating there were 2 micro sectors that never registered.

I assured I didn't go off track and kept it between the lines, although it still never registered  :o anyone else have this issue?

I hope it won't count as a PLP cut track

My time on the laps page is from a few days ago, none of my better times have appeared!!  But others have in the meantime...
