XGN's Mustang 50th Celebration Season with Guests.
« on: March 18, 2014, 09:22:58 AM »
4 Rounds, tracks in alphabetic order:

Round 1: Green Valley Raceway
Round 2: Oakhill Raceway
Round 3: Pacific Raceway
Round 4: Paramount Ranch Raceway
( I added the "Raceway" because it looks neater  :-\ )

Sprint 1: 10 25 Minutes Qualifying time grid
Sprint 2: 1 25 Minutes Reverse Grid
Sprint 3:  ?? If your arms are still functioning, this can be added.


Qual: 08:00 pm (20:00hrs) AEST
Warmup: if requested
Race 1: After warmup/qual


Server is up and set to the current round's track.


With the celebration of the Mustang's release 50 years ago... (pitty there weren't any Barracudas in Historics!), you can't leave out the cousins of similar age when it is party time so to celebrate belatedly Cortina's 50th due 2013...

Cars available:
Mustang ('66 A3)
Cortina (All)
Falcon Sprint ('65 GTTC A3) # 5,7,50 & 74

Round 1 April 17th
Round 2 April 24th
Round 3 May 01st
Round 4 May 8th

This will give us a bye between the Mercedes Season and this season... time to download the tracks and get settled and to have a breather.

NOW...
  • You choose the car you like. 
  • All selections must be locked in before the end of the current season.
  • Tracks will be announced/released after the car selection is closed.
  • I have a number of tracks, I will randomly select 4 tracks from the short list.

Having tested all the available cars on 3 tracks, the above list being the lower powered V8s, the 3 cars are balance each other and are competitive with in a second.

Details to follow.

Love your work flatty :)

Now i'll have to go see how the new cars drive.... I do have a soft spot for the old Sprint, i have fond memories of throwing that thing at McPhillamy Park a few years ago.... Sideways, the only way to travel  ;D
Cheers

Hi Bruce,

can you clerify the car choices please?

The only 66 A3 Mustang is the Shelby, is this correct, or is it the 65 A3 Mustang?

Are the Lotus cortinas available or just the standard Ford ones?

I took the Sprint for a cruise this evening, i got motion sickness from all the body roll and floating!!!
Cheers

the gear box noise and lack of v8 Rumble is my only negative, I've probably had more success in the cortina.
If it is the least selected I'll be driving one :)
I'M honing to drive which ever is least wanted.

I have never raced these tracks vandem, they are fitting for the Mustang, not necessarily "ideal" for the Mustang but fitting :)
A mix of fast and twisty, should allow for close racing of the mixed cars.

Fyi - I won't be quick.  Don't have time to practice between race nights, but did some off-laps at Lime Rock last week and enjoyed the Mustang.   In multi-car leagues I've normally picked a smaller engine car (Alfa, Escort), and avoided the lumbering V8s, but was pleasantly surprised by the Mustang, was more nimble than I expected.

Small fields don't worry me, still love the HistorX mod.
