Fun run Feb 19 - a bunch of cars at Brands Hatch
« on: February 13, 2019, 12:18:15 AM »
The practice server is up with a bunch of varied cars, which should give some good mixed racing, at Brands Hatch:

Abarth 500 Assetto Corse
Alfa Romeo 4C
BMW 1M Stage 3
BMW Z4 E89 Step1
Ford Mustang 2015
Lotus Evora S
Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec

I've thrown on a bit of ballast to try to compress the lap times a bit. Put some lap times in, and let's see how the cars stack up here: http://52.63.217.129:50041/lapstat?currservers=acserver2

Next week's fun run is just going to be a few 6 lap sprints where you can jump in and out of a few different cars. No sign up or car renting required - just turn up.

Practice is going to be all the cars combined.
Race 1 - choose one of the Nissan, BMW Z4 or Mustang.
Race 2 - Mustang, Alfa, Abarth.
Race 3 - Abarth, BMW 1M, Lotus.

OK, we'll be having some other fun run the week after next, and then the season can start when you return.

Added some info in the 1st post:

Practice is going to be all the cars combined.
Race 1 - choose one of the Nissan, BMW Z4 or Mustang.
Race 2 - Mustang, Alfa, Abarth.
Race 3 - Abarth, BMW 1M, Lotus.

I've adjusted the ballast/restrictor based on the lap times I'm seeing, to squeeze up the gaps between the cars a bit and spread them evenly.

Seeing the Abarth, BMW & Mustang on track at the same time weirdly made me think of the Mini v Cortina v Galaxy days. :D
Just modern...... ;)

Sorry for my absence recently. Been struggling to get back to it after Xmas. Who knew 3 kids under 7 and a full time job would be so tiring. Gets to the evening and can't even be bothered to leave the sofa. I'll try and make the fun run tomorrow though.

I'm hoping it should be an interesting mix of cars on track.

Think of it as de-stress time. Under Dr. Wally's orders.

Server's up (password protected). The 1st practice session has all the cars; then I'll break it into 3 sprints in groups of cars.

Race 1 - choose one of the Nissan, BMW Z4 or Mustang.
Race 2 - Mustang, Alfa, Abarth.
Race 3 - Abarth, BMW 1M, Lotus.

Remember, the cars aren't all meant to be the same, they're meant to be evenly staggered in performance.

Sorry guys: will have to miss tonight. I'll be on a "maybe" schedule for the next few weeks, but usually in.

Here are the race results, if you want to see how the cars performed.

I've also attached the practice times, if you want to see those.
