Notes:
(1) It's best if all drivers can make sure they are connected before the Qualifying session as drivers on track during qualifying will not see cars that join after they are on track until they go back to the garage.
(2) Please make sure you are fully aware of the SimRacing.org.uk Rules.
(3) The AI control should be turned off so that you have control of the car at all times, including pitting. Your player file should therefore read
Autopit="0"
Force Autopit Off="1" // Forces autopit always off
No AI Control="1" // AI never has control over car
If you still finding pitting problematic, experience tells us that its less to do with positioning and more to do with approach speed. A slow approach to pit crew chief has proved most reliable.

Special Notes: None

Just finished choosing my car for this one. One of the closest sets of times I've seen so far this season. It's a great circuit that's easy to learn and a joy to drive.

I'm happy to race as normal and, apart from Monday, could make an earlier start if you considered it beneficial to increase the number of contestants. Grin

I have absolutely no interest in football so can race anyway, but I agree with Bill. If we'd get more drivers with a different start time then I'm all for it.

Hope to make this one too. 

I'm struggling to find "the" car for this track. Just done 15 mins of research and nothing jumps out as obvious  Undecided.

The BMW feels solid and fast but I don't think this track would be the best use of that car.
The Escort I still cannot get to feel right...I need more time and off line practice with this car, and I just don't have that luxury at the moment.
Commodore is great on the fast bits, not quite so sure about the corners
The Mini should be good if only I can learn how to drive it properly!! lol
The Nissan is my favourite ATM, but again this much power seems wasted here
The Porker is easy and smooth but I find it difficult to push to the max and keep it on the track

Struggling to get times near 1:50, and I guess that laptimes at the front will be way below that!!!

The guys with the big question mark hanging over him in the paddock is me  Huh

Replays of both races now posted.

For those not aware............we suffered a glitch at around lap10 of the race and so it was red flagged and a second race was started with random grid and shortened length (20 laps).

I want to merge the results from both races to produce one final result. There will not be double points however as that would be unfair to those not attending.

Also both races will only count as one car drive and not two.

Results will appear eventually  Roll Eyes

Result table compiled from both races now posted.

Championship points still need adjusting to suit. I will post when this has been sorted.

I guess I have the internet gremlins to thank for that result (provisional).  Wink

I decided that I had to use either the mini or the Escort for this race or else I would run out of options later in this series. Of the two cars I found that the mini was slightly quicker although the setup ( modified from Geoffers offering) had a habit of biting me on the bum under heavy braking.

So I jumped on the server as early as I could and set about honing the setup ( and more importantly my technique for driving the mini!!)
The eureka moment came when I adjusted the brake balance slightly rearwards and tweaked the castor angle. Suddenly, I found I could brake in to the apex and allow the tail end to slide around so that the car was pointing where i wanted to go on the exit. Then I could feed in the motion lotion, using the front wheel drive to drag me out of the corner.  That knocked a couple of seconds off my PB!!!

However....The start of the 1st race was a disaster for me. I over revved the start and the noise of all the cars passing me on the run to T1 drowned out my little engine so I was late upshifting and dropped to last place I think??!! Undecided

Then I got a little over enthusiastic trying to make up lost time and managed to totally lose it around T4-5, finding myself parked in the gravel with a stalled engine. The whole field were out of sight before I restarted. Sad

Actually it was quite fun chasing down the cars in front and although the mini lost out on the straights, it would make up loads of time through the corners. Then i found myself in a 4 way scrap for 3rd spot(??) and things were getting very interesting between all the different cars. Erling was long gone and away in the lead, but I think my pace might have got me 3rd or even maybe a second spot if the race had continued. I guess other cars around me had a different view of how things might work out??  Roll Eyes
Then it all went wrong when the gremlins pulled the interweb plug.

By the time we restarted with race 2 I was beginning to feel that I had finally got to grips with the front end of the mingey and was a little more confident. The start was still bad and the field swamped me....but I noticed that Erling suffered a similar problem so did not feel too bad ninja

The extra cornering speed of the mini took some getting used to and several times I  almost rammed the car in front Shocked.  I was determined to get onto Erling's tail if i could and follow him, hoping to pick up some tips on Mini driving  Wink A few demon braking moves helped by a few mistakes ahead and I was closing on the leading pair with Mr Geezer looking a little "on the limit" up front with his Beemer.

I think it was Erling who wobbled first and I took the opportunity to squirt through on the inside and scuttle off into the distance. Eventually the BMW gave up the battle between grip and centrifugal force and I was leading AND IN A MINI!!!??

Erling threatened to push me all the way for a few laps but suddenly he was not there any more, and I had about 10 seconds of clear air  Grin. From then on it was just managing the gap and the tyres to the end and the flag.

Pleasantly surprised to make the mini go as well as it did after all my previous attempts ended in embarrassing failure.
Grats to all who finished and this was ( for me at least) a great circuit/car combo.
