Moderator's Report

No reported incidents - at least for this race...

Dave does report an incident with Martin but sadly put it in the wrong race... took me a while to find it!


Server replay time: 0h00m57s

Dave gets a better start than those around him and slides round the corner. Martin is oblivious to the fact that M. Rainier has got the drop on him and continues as normal. David takes a tight line and is hit amidships. He could have left a bit more room and stayed out until he was fully past.

These seasoned campaigners don't need much advice from me... it was avoidable though.

Moderator's Report

Pretty clean.


Server replay time: 0h01m00s

Martin tests the kerbs and finds that they spin a fully loaded Can Am. Gives the evil one no chance whatsoever.


Server replay time: 0h02m05s

Greg gets a much better exit out of T4 than Fran and gets alonside and with his superior speed whizzes past. Fran is surprised by the overtake and by the difference in speeds. Fran spins off and Greg is unaffected.

Now for the GT's and Can Ams around this tight little track, which should present a unique challenge and require some very delicate pressure on the gas pedal.

Please try and be considerate when lapping or being lapped as this is sure to happen on such a short track, but it will ensure that there are very few dull moments for anyone.
 
Once again the Lights have a restriction in their car options and I fully expect that they will have to work hard to claim any silverware.

It is difficult to overtake at Lime Rock, but not impossible. The video is for inspiration.  laugh

Thanks for letting us know while there's still time to prepare. I thought the 910 was a very nice choice to give the Lights on a tight course like this. There is one thing I'd like to ask. Would you please keep the Lights' choice of cars the same through the season? I was hoping to drive this season using one (the same) car for each mod. My lack of experience and limited talent make it difficult for me to swap back and forth between cars. I also don't have the time to prepare as well as I'd like. I'm still at the point that 90% of the laps I've driven in the 65, 67, 69, and GT cars, are in one car. I'd hate to drive the 2D for this race and then not be able use it later.

Whatever happens, I'll stick with it but next season I'm not going to race in more than two Series.

I must have still been full of Christmas goodwill and generosity when I posted that the Porker would be available to the Lights. Either that or someone had spiked my bedtime cocoa!!  Undecided
The Porsche has to be just about the best handling car across the whole spectrum of mods in GPL. It might lack a little in top speed but it will more than make up for that by the speed it can carry through corners and it's late braking ability.

...My lack of experience and limited talent...

Are a perfectly valid reason to run as a Heavy in this championship, until you're more familiar? If you start running away with poles and wins that are more due to the car than the driver, self-handicapping is never out of the question.

Just a suggestion.

I saw this link for JR's GT set-ups in a previous race announcement. http://www.sendspace.com/file/p0x0hw I have used them myself, and it helps save a little time.  Smiley

A little?  It's like 50mph slower than the Mk4!

...neither the Ford GT - Mk1 for lights ? The 910 is way better performing in a track so short like at Lime Rock anyway there could be close fights between the Mk1's and the 910's drivers...at least for me !

I didn't understand a thing...the heavies have fast cars but all decided to use slow cars instead, also if there were much better cars...the problem is...nobody wanna prepare the race at best !  Tongue Roll Eyes Undecided

The porsche 910 was the best GT's car by far but...there was only one ! It was a Chaparral 2D festival but that car is not simple to manage, I would have preferred  much more the Porsche 910 but also the Ford Mk1 it would have been nice to drive  the Ford Mk2B or the Lola T70.

At this point the handicap system is useless also if I agree with it.

P.S.: backmarkers play a key role in every race...damn...it is not so difficult to understand that each one have to stay out of the racing line in the imminence of being lapped.

I do agree that the car choice was perhaps not the best this time around, it was much better last time, at least with the 69x's. I also can't seem to get to grips with the Ferrari 712 too well, although I think I set it up a bit too stiff. Also agree about the backmarkers although I understand the more limited visibility and nature of the track made it harder to get out of the way.

Zero practice so quali was spent creating a setup and getting the gears right. Got a f/l in race 1 and a pole in race 2, but lacked consistency a bit due to lack of practice. Let's hope my Nürburgring Graduates race is better!

Not much more to say really. I'm more of an open wheel kind of guy, somehow I can't seem to get as much enjoyment out of these cars as I get out of the cars in our open wheeled mods. Although I have to say the CanAm cars look very pleasing to the eye!

Big fun again !

Congratulations to winners, podium ones and all take part !

Chap2D festival:
Spun by my own 2 times. 1 time got  rear end shunt at T1 and funny thing, my heavy Chap once got circled by an light Porsche. No prop so , just surprised it could be possible.

Well imo GTmod programming needs to be work over. There is an dramatic delay between what is shown on the screen and what is calculated on the physics: once ya stabilized the car after an driving error and car looks save again as well tyre temps and speed of course extreme slow ( ec 70kmh) and ya start to accelerate smooth to came back to race speed , mostly the car starts to jump/swim right left till its gone.

CanAm:
Really like that mod , cars are great/direct on the throttle, steering input is well..etc.

Thrilling moment at 2nd last lap after exit of last turn. G.T. regain track from right green , crossed over directly to the speed line… would have been an deathly mistake in real.



Note : virtual mirrors for Gts and for CanAm ( including  Ferrari 712 ! ).

http://rapidshare.com/share/CDC3FB9E6827E970AF38801ACB4789F7


edit: looks like these rapidshare stuff is new and leads to unwanted commercials .
If someone could give me an hint for a better solution to upload files, it would be great . thx

I had fun in each race, but I lost a lot of time after doing a half spin in each race. I have virtual mirrors for the GT mod, but not the Can Am yet (It will be nice to try out). I had some misfortune in the Can-Am race. I accidently touched the keyboard during race, and I lost the sound. I pulled over to investigate. I hit Ctrl-Alt-Del, and task manager showed that a "Windows help" program opened. The sound came back on after I closed it. I rejoined the race. Then later I accidently touched the keyboard again, and my view changed to a different car! I retired from the race as fast as I could. I am sorry for that. I hope that my car was not blocking the track. I will check the replay and make apologies if necessary.

I had a lot of fun - the opening lap with like 6 or 7 Chap 2Ds together was so loud I couldn't hear my own engine!  Stuck to Sergio and waited for him to make a mistake, but he didn't.  Grats Sergio.

CanAm race was great- Tom looked to be struggling a little which gave me a chance to get by and then charge to the end.  One thing I'd like to say to the slower drivers is that you shouldn't feel you have to have to dive off onto the grass and ruin your own race to let people past.
