The race will start with a pace lap, rolling to the last lefthander kink "Kessel", where you can put the hammer down...

Guys - I'm told there will be a vote on this subject of rolling starts, or standing starts, later.   So it's not necessary to stay away from this race,and vote now.  Vote later.  Hit with a wet fish

Got home at 9:25... CA mod wouldn't run - aggghghhhhh. Had to re-install it.

Hope you enjoyed yourselves.

How about running something open that everyone knows next time - monza, silverstone or kyalami come to mind.

I have to confess that I am struggling to get a "feel" for these monsters and so far most of my attempts at setup improvement have been dubious Undecided

I took the Lola 222 last night, with no idea if it is a good car, a slow car or just OK??  The Shadows at the front of the field seemed very quick, but was that driver or chassis?

Same here...

As I wanted to have all cars on the grid, I waited a little to join, but my prepared cars were allready taken...
So I choose the McL-F to complete the grid.
I had to do a provisional setup to make a good quali time, but with the race fuel the car was difficult to handle.

How about Spa at friday? With a standing start!

I'd say the Lola T222's & Shadows were about the same Clive - both in that middle group of cars. I only chose the Shadow because of the colour Embarrassed - the big Mclaren certainly has more power though whether that was a help or a hindrance at a twisty track like Jops I couldn't say... Generally speaking the cars do seem a lot closer than the GT's though.

Hope my rolling start was OK. BTW on the whole rolling vs standing start debate, I quite like doing both types - I would have thought we have enough mods/divisions to accommodate both?

I will be away but I would suggest a VERY loose grid or rolling through Eau Rouge. Definitely not on PRO settings though Cheesy

Hmm. After some comparative testing, I might have to correct my earlier statement. The Lola seems to be around 0.5 - 0.75 secs a lap slower than the Shadow round most circuits I tried Tongue

from my breif outings the shadow is very good in a staight line but all in all the Mc F and the Lola 260 are the best two with nothing between them.

The Lola 222 is far to be the quickest CanAm car but it is very easy and funny to drive !
I really enjoy it at Jops Siffert, too bad my engine blowed !

Keep in mind chaps, these are mostly big, torquy V8's. Revving the bejeezus out of them is not really required. Most run out of horsepower long before redline so shifting 500revs or more before the red is no disadvantage....Gear them well, and you should never blow an engine.
