Title: UKGPL Season 34 (2019) 1966 F1 - Kyalami - Jan 22
Post by: Rainier on January 11, 2019, 11:29:04 AM +0000
Season 34 Historic Trophy – Round 1 –  Kyalami

For the first round of the season we go to a familiar track. Kyalami Racing Circuit (from Kyalami, My home in Zulu) is a motor racing circuit located in Midrand, Gauteng province, South Africa. The circuit has been used for Grand Prix and Formula One races and has hosted the South African Grand Prix many times

IMPORTANT: it is policy of UKGPL to have the original pitstraight armco installed at this original track! Failure to apply the pitwall & drive in that space may result in disqualification. Follow these instructions to restore the wall if you have a mod that has removed it:
METHOD 1: To place a wall between the pits and the track, rename or remove the kyalami.trk and kyalami.3do files from your kyalami folder.
METHOD 2: To reinstall the original Papyrus Armco, rename or remove the Armco_s.mip file from your kyalami folder.

60fps patch used   = 60fpsV2newmod
Damage Model = Pro
Qualifying time = 30-45 minutes

There is no Red Zone. Moderating will be on reported incidents only. Remember that lap 1 incidents carry an additional penalty place.

The chassis token system is explained on the Historics Trophy standings page.

Please restrict chat to pit messages including at the end of the race until ALL drivers still racing have crossed the line.

A driver must have sufficient tokens for the chassis he drives in the race.  Any driver who does not have sufficient tokens will be disqualified from the result and his tokens will be set to zero.

The chassis a driver uses in qualifying are disregarded when determining his token spend.
Note:  This is to cater for the instances when a driver either does not start or inadvertently joins with the wrong chassis and subsequently rejoins the server in another.

Any tokens not spent at the end of the season are ignored and are not used to determine championship positions in the event of a tie.


PRO rules means Shift-Rs are not allowed at any time and the damage model is realistic.
 
Drivers must complete 50% race distance to score.


Available Tokens:
Note: These are the tokens available to each driver before the 10 tokens are added for making the race start.

Can we just have clarification on who are the Pro & Amateur driver. (I'm fairly clear where I am).

Also, is it correct that Ams will start with 20 tokens.

Thanks.

Almost convinced to have gained point,at one lap from them,flash from the engine >:(
And i don't think to have squized the engine.

Was there a mass disco last night or, just a major incident? Half of the field appears to have vanished very early in the race.

Grats to Tris on the win and to Andreas and Mark on getting to the finish.

I was really enjoying the battle with Andreas and Tris in the early laps and then when Andreas dropped away it was a 100% battle with Tris at great pace.

I made a small error and lost a little ground, but was confident that I could close the gap, especially with the slipstream, until I looked at the fuel situation.

I thought that I had enough fuel loaded at the start, but I think that the pace was so fast in those early laps that things were obviously not going to work if I continued at that pace. I was sorry that I had to back off and cruise to the flag because the battle with Tris was epic and the last few laps could have been huge fun. At the end of the race I crossed the line with 2 ltrs of fuel, so backing off was the right move to preserve 2nd spot.

A rather uninspiring start to the season. Spent lots of tokens on the 3 Litre Ferrari, but still the best part of 2 seconds off the PB in the big Brabham. I was in a close battle with Fran on Lap 2 & missed my brake point. Slid off the track & tangled with the armco. The armco easily won the argument with my left front tyre.
I've never been able to work out Road America so I'll take a cheap car for the next outing.

No mass disco.
Just a Rich Welsh disco in my case...
First he made a bad re-join on the track just in front of Francesco and me coming.
Then, some hundred meters after, he turned as he was alone on the track ...unfortunately I was there !

Rich, if you are really rich maybe you could spent some money to buy mirrors (and/or glasses) ?

I will open 2 racing incidents and ask someone else to moderate them (i cannot moderate 'cause I am directly impacted)

I've loaded the chassis the drivers used into the token calculator spreadsheet.  For the next race the available tokens will be as declared in the table below (the table will also appear in the next race announcement).  The calculated values are automated but selecting the cars is a manual process so please check your tokens to make sure I haven't made a silly error.  There was no token overspend for this round so no one is disqualified.

Reply. The replay server, which is hosted by Turkey Machine, is undergoing work & will be offline for a bit. Suggest you check in a couple of days.

We have to wait.
Did you have an incident during the race ?

Thanks Axel but we have to create an account to download it.

I don't like to create accounts on unknown sites, in the best case it will just send me lot of advertising but what in the worst ...??
Is there a chance to get replay by the usual UKGPL site ?

Hi All

Now I have seen the replay I would like to apologize to Rainier and Francesco for my mistakes,I would also like the collision I had at the previous corner with Cookie to be looked at because the way it looks to me in the replay I was T'Boned which set all this commotion in progress?

Rich

Rich you were badly warping all the time and I was busy to avoid a contact several times...

O.k no worries Cookie that might explain why I turned into Rainier because he was showing in my mirrors although jumping around as I maneuvered into him!

We have lots of rules and penalty guidelines on the ukgpl.com (https://www.ukgpl.com/index.php/rules/intro) website. Very few people have committed all the rules to memory, we all need to refer to them from time to time. The guidelines for warp incidents are here (https://www.ukgpl.com/index.php/rules/warp). If you have a read through them they may help you understand the effects of "internet lag" or "warp". The guidelines for rejoining a race are here (https://www.ukgpl.com/index.php/rules/bad_rejoin).

I hope you are enjoying the racing with us. We are here to have fun but we have a strong competitive spirit (hence the need for rules).

Regards
Phil

Rich I do not know much about your online experience, but if you see all other jumping around, it is very likely yourself who is warping.

I have a comfortable position, my race pc and the server are 5m apart, wich gives a ping of 0 ;)

In this "terrific" first lap, before our incident,  I also saw Francesco turning into you like he was not seeing anything. (No incident have been reported atm)
Maybe, it's due to warping too   !!???

Rich, this may have been mentioned before. Are you using a hardwire connection to your router? Wi-Fi is notoriously bad for GPL.
