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.
(4) Driver lists can be found on the championship standings page

Special Notes: Note earlier start time.

Just downloaded and tried this new circuit as I had a spare 30 mins and opted for the Aston DB2 for no particular reason.

Awwwwww!!! that engine note when it gets up near max revs is just ...........................  drool droolthumbup2 thumbup2 thumbup2 thumbup2

Watched a couple of the DB2's and some C type Jags at the Goodwood Revival last year and probably a couple of those Fezzas too. I may not be fast enough to worry the quick boys around this narrow circuit, but I can assure you I will be competing on volume level with my surround sound  yes yes yes yes yes yes

Just had a blast in each car yesterday.  They get me grinning from ear to ear..  yes

Sorely tempted by the Ferrari 250, but sadly it seems to be one of the slowest.  Maserati is an absolute ANIMAL. My ears were bleeding after testing it (somehow turning the volume down didn't occur to me..  Grin).  It seems to come in two engine flavors.  Tony, can you confirm we can use both ?   I only tried the most powerful, but maybe its lesser sibling is a more harmonic combination of excessive engine power and nonexistent grip...  Wink

Nice track BTW, with great sense of speed in these open cars, on those narrow, tree lined lanes.  Haven't checked yet, but can imagine it might be very dark there at 03:00...  Shocked

Cheers,
Erling

I ran a few cars last night, and the DB2 was a drivable fast option, didn't try the 250
did try the 375 which was very drivable but slower than I expected, then i tried my
old fave the Monster Mazzer.  Grin  I was fastest in it, but experience tells me that
the setup needs to cripple it to have any chance of finishing a race with burnt rears  Shocked
I think I was doing 1:42 ish with the Mazzer, 43 with the DB2, and 45 with the 375.
The Jag was really slow, which was a bit odd, as I thought it was nearly as fast as a DB2.

Either Maserati can be used.

Practise you pit entry as due to the short entry you may get caught out with a stop/go for pit lane speeding.

I'll have to try that myself tonight to see if the limiter is required at this track.

There is street lighting in places but loss of headlamps will require xray vision in some sectors.

Thanks for the pm Tony, I had noticed this was on & since I won the first race at Snetterton it would be rude to miss this one.

Ran a few practice laps in something slower to learn the track, not too difficult, & then took the Testa Rossa for a run. Had a setup for it, but was well off Matt's pace initially & the car was all over the place under braking. Some setup changes cured that & after around 10 more laps I got down to 1.41.0 with it. If I have time I will try some other cars, but the only other one I have driven before is the D-type, so I will probably stick with the Testa Rossa for the race. Not run any laps in the dark yet!!!  Shocked

My best time so far is 1:40.6 in the Big Mazzer. I tried the 250 and it was a really
nice drive, but I don't think I got under 44 in it. The Mazzer limps round corners
and has wooden brakes, but flies down the straights at a shocking pace.
I went back to the DB2 which was my first test, and went no better than before.
Have done all testing without any headlights. I don't like to use lights because
if I lose them it makes it really awkward.

Forgot to report that this track has a pit limiter function so don't get caught out

That's a mighty impressive time in the 250 Geoffers  Shocked
It's my favorite of the cars, but sadly the slowest for me, bar the D-Type, which I can't get to grips with. Haven't noticed any braking problems; in fact it's the car that I can brake the latest in, possibly because it isn't going so fast.  That's with the default setup though.  Would love to use it, but my best time is 2 secs off your pace.  Are there any setup tips for it you would be willing to share ?

My overall fastest is 1:40.3, in either of the Maseratis, but that's hanging on to dear life for most of the lap, especially in the bigger one, so doubt I'd make 40 laps in those.

Matt, it really is dark in places, like Tony stated earlier, so you probably can't avoid using the lights.

Cheers,
Erling

The scenery is dark, but the road is mostly white or very light, the village with the
cobbles is a darker surface but is no problem to see the road. Only slightly dodgy bit
is getting the line right on the corner before the long stright were there are lots of
shadows.

I'm guessing that Matt has his monitor brightness set high because the road when not lit by streetlamps is pitch black to me.

Only tried the Ferrari TR and the Aston so far. The TR is altogether more refined to drive and although possibly not the quickest, may be the better choice for an endurance event. More praccy to be fitted in this weekend.

I have tried a few laps in the nasty Maserati...what a beast that is. So much power and so little handling lol. I think that would be a handful for a long race and at night.

Also managed a few exploratory laps in the D-type but did not have time to make any successful tweaks to the setup and found it surprisingly slow( kind of expected it to be the class of the field??), but that might be just lack of quality track time.

A few laps in the DB2 felt good ...might be potential there for some improvement and I have not had chance to sample the Fezzas as yet. But they are red and logic dictates that red cars won't be fast. wacko

Looking forward to this race, although I have to practice the pitstops no matter which car I drive as I have yet to complete a proper pitstop in any GTL or PnG races!!   Undecided
