Moderator's Report

A comfortable win for Ross Neilson secured the Privateers Trophy despite another second place for Phil Thornton, his fifth of the season. Hendy Nichols took the final podium place to cap an excellent second half of the campaign.


Server replay time: 0h01m50s

Nigel brakes later than Michael as they approach turn four and hits the rear of his car.

This could have been classified as Blatant Rear End Shunt but it appears Nigel tried to go right in the hope of avoiding Michael so I've chosen Simple Rear End Shunt instead.

The season reaches its conclusion at Road America near Elkhart Lake in Wisconsin. This track is one of North America's finest road racing venues, with a challenging mix of corners and undulations. A fitting place to settle the championship battle, which has tightened up in the last two rounds with Phil Thornton and Dave Rainier eating into long-time leader Ross Neilson's advantage. In the teams' standings Antipasti have a solid lead but could still be beaten by Clark-Hill.

Thanks to a partial BREASTS session the other night,  I'm now aware that Road America is NOT Road Atlanta!  (hey, surely an easy mistake to make...).     Also experienced what I believe to be my first/only GPL Crash To Desktop so far...

So, have track now,  but it does not look good at all!   I swear the number of corners per lap is random & they also change order.  There again I have an attention time of a. I'm sure some laps there are a couple of secret corners that pop up from time to time and they collectively change order.    From some background reading it appears this track is something to behold, hmm...

Also seems that Monaco has more run off!   Maybe if I pootle around in 2nd gear,  half the field will be missing a front wheel by lap 3 Smiley

In short, oh dear!   

Here endeth the ramble.

Cheers,
Dave.

Lol !

Remember the old saying .....


No pain = No gain  Grin

Have to admit this track drives me nuts too , think I will be adopting my favourite driving position , bucket seat swopped for armchair & picnic hamper ( plenty of pies )  Wink

as for gears , never saw the point in a whole box full of 'em when 3 is just fine , maybe use auto change mode for this one  Roll Eyes

Well, the track is not that hard... the problem is, that the groove is absolutely uselles, and you have to search for some track objects to use as brake markers... but these are definetly lacking. In turn 1, you have ot brake way before you see the brake patch on the ground (about 100 meters after the pit wall), because if you rely on the groove, you go off... also in turn 5 (the one after the fast right\left) you have to brake about 50 meters before the brake patch. The other corners are so-so ok, but dont rely on the groove to find your racing line...

If someone has a .cln of the track, something might be done about it... but i couldnt find .cln.  

edit: seems someone already searched for cln...and it can't be done, because it's a converted track. Oh well, we will drive it like that I guess.

@Sky the track is converted from IndyCar Racing II rather than being built from scratch, so the brake markers are OK for late late 90s IndyCars but useless for 1967 Grand Prix cars. I find turn 1 the hardest as you've got that small crest in the road just as you approach the braking zone which leaves you a little unsighted.

I enquired on SRMZ about a cln but there is none, and as you stated you can't make them for converted tracks. It was my choice to put this track on the schedule as I think it's layout is great, but the poor groove, graphics and brake markers would put me off other converted tracks in future.

@Bernie I did a 12 lap run in the Ferrari earlier and used 8.7 gallons so I reckon 17 gallons should cover it, depending on chassis chosen and driving style of course Smiley

Had a rather busy week & no opportunity to download let alone practice this one. From the feedback above I reckon my race wouldn't last more than a couple laps even if I had learnt the track. Shame to miss the last race.
Best of luck for those that do make the grid - especially Dave who has the chance to win Black Night a drivers championship.

Bernie - the first zip from the linked thread has a broken .ini or something... read the posts and you will see. download the zip later on, on the second page I think.

My connection caused a problem in Tuesday's 65 race, for contender David, so I'll not risk causing a championship knockout at Road America.  This Pasti won't be overcooking it, tonight. Undecided
