Season One: "I love horsepower" Carroll Shelby.
« on: August 06, 2014, 09:43:08 AM »
XGN & Assetto Corso bring you:
 'Shelby Cobra Cup Racing'
Thursdays

Season One: " I love horsepower" Carroll Shelby.

<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/jNxG-UuTntw?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

With the ever increasing development of the multiplayer Assetto Corso and with the best modders backing the AC simulator, it is starting to become difficult to select which cars to run in 21st Century Simulator.


Get Assetto Corso


Well with that in mind, XGN would like to commence with running another series, unrelated to the Tuesday night's sublime series, that:
1. Allows the usage/patronage of the one of the modders fantastic work, 'the_meco' who has created the the Cobra Mod "SHELBY COBRA 427 S/C"
2. Is a 'Fun Series' that allows us to concentrate on social races, without hundreds of hours prac to balance out high expectations of us.
3. Provide those who cannot make it Tuesday, to remain in touch with all the sim sport here at XGN
4. Be an easy intro to sim racing for 'noobs'
5. Hopefully have some of the past players here at XGN an interest to return.
6. A series that runs with the values and friendship/community that has made XGN one of the standout gaming forums/sim racing groups in Australia.
7. We also have the advantage of celebrating the life of one of the many greats of motor sport, Carroll Shelby, with the "Shelby Cobra Cup" available for season winners to have their names added.


This is purely "Cobra", only "Cobra" and nothing but the "Cobra", okay, when other mods come available that have the same appeal as the "Cobra", these will be voted on and incorporated or run, but until then we have 3 * Cobras * many tracks = many seasons.

Schedule released, laying out the first of the fortnightly THURSDAY nights, using the existing prac/qual/race times that we have become accustomed here at XGN, but we will probabley adopt a 2 race night.
1. A shorter sprint with a double distance main race. 
2. This will give us the chance to have a short adrenaline rush sprint and then apply some strategy for the longer race.
3. Use some of the newer track, assisting in checking/sorting out issues to assist/show appreciation for the work by the modders/track builders.
4. Depending on my capabilities, if 'ballast' is available, we may apply to the second race to even the field out for some door rubbin' fun.
5. Fun. :)

p.s.  I will be on a learning curve with running the server etc..

Thanks 'the_meco'  http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?members/the_meco.2248/

Rules
* Car Selection. Cobra 427 S/C
* Track Limits. The AC track cutting penalty system will not be used. You must keep at least one wheel within the track boundary, typically delimited by white lines. This won't be enforced. It is an honour system.
* Redress. If you gain position advantage over another driver by colliding with them such that their car leaves the track, or by cutting the track yourself, you are expected to redress your position as soon as safely possible. Gaining position by "reasonable" side-by-side contact is allowed, but rear collisions must be avoided. This won't be enforced. It is an honour system.
* Track Re-entry. You must always re-enter the track with extreme caution. Any collision on re-entry must be redressed.
* Assists. Driving assists like ABS and TC can be used if available on the car. There is no forced driving view.
* Fuel/Tyre Multiplier. Due to an AC bug, please ensure that your Fuel and Tyre wear multipliers in offline mode are set to 1x.
 
Server Details
The AC server is called AUS www.xgn.com.au THUR Cobra Cup
TeamSpeak is encouraged. The server is ts.xgn.com.au.

It's just a little bit different to the formula abarth.

Thanks for the reminder Gratulin.... Shelby Cobra 427 Street Season One

We can then vote on using the replica or jump to the S/C for the following season...

lets hope you have the odd thursday available... you can never pick a night that suits all.
We are not sure on what numbers will be racing, so will be running an open server, with the max pit possies available.
People like yourself are welcome to arrive for one or more races on a night or a season.

I have heard they are so close in design that you can even apply the formula abarth setup parameters to the cobra, is this true master Wally ???

So long as you sticky tape some cardboard wings onto the Cobra, yes.
