Moderator's Report

SUMMARY

Jonny leads the field from Pole, and bottoms out in T10 on Lap 1 and falls back to the rear of the field. But he charges up through the field, and when Phil has an off in T11 on Lap 7 (like on Lap 1), Jonny regains the lead and goes on to a dominant victory in the Lotus in the end. Championship leader Phil Thornton finishes second in the Ferrari, Phil had some offs but after Jonny took the lead on Lap 8 stayed close for a while, but mistakes meant he had to settle for P2. Dave Curtis seems to have solved his technical gremlins, and runs a solid very consistent race in the Brabahm to the final podium spot.

George Cheeseman finishes 4th after an eventual race, even taking the lead on Lap 1 in the BRM, but falling back due to some little mistakes and others having better cars. Bernie Darwin is the last of lead lap finishers in the Brabham. Michal Turner and Fran Molteni round out the Top 7 of finishers, one lap down, both in the Brabham.

Congratulations Jonny and podium, and well done all finishers on such a difficult track! Commiserations to Billy and Paul for having to retire early on.


No incidents were reported, and no irregularities detected concerning resets.

After the start Billy and Bernie had a slight touch into T1, but both could continue. No harm, no foul. Billy was very cautious into T1 and had Bernie in his blind spot. Billy turnt in not knowing Bernie was there. Bernie expected Billy to stay wide or give room.

Haven't reported it, but wanted to mention it.

Season 27 Privateers Trophy - Round 6 - Road Atlanta

Road Atlanta is a 2.54-mile (4.088 km) road course located just north of Braselton, Georgia. The facility is utilized for a wide variety of events, including professional and amateur sports car and motorcycle races, racing and driving schools, corporate programs and testing for motorsports teams. The track has 12 turns, including the famous "esses" between turns three and five; and Turn 12, a downhill, diving turn. The track is owned by NASCAR through its subsidiary Panoz Motorsports, and is the home to the Petit Le Mans, as well as AMA motorcycle racing, and smaller events throughout the year.

Race List = IGOR
Server = UKGPL9
IP = 37.157.48.87
Race date = Sunday 09-11-2014
Time = 21:00 UK time (21:00 GMT)
Track = Road Atlanta '71 - Please note this is new version of the track previously used at UKGPL
Race length = 35 Laps (50 minutes)
Variant = 1967
Damage Model = Intermediate
Qualifying time = 30 minutes

Replays Available here

Driver lists and token rules can be found on the championship standings page

The full time drivers can start to practice as soon as the server is available.  Reserve drivers can also join as soon as the server becomes available but must leave the server with 35 minutes of qualifying left, for a total of 5 minutes; this will allow any remaining full timers to join.  If there is enough space on the grid, the reserve drivers will be able to rejoin when there are 30 mins of qualifying left.  

Moderating The red zone will be fully moderated for lap 1 only. For this event the red zone will be from the start to the exit of T7. Other moderation will be on reported incidents only.  However any incidents that occur in the red zone that are not reported by the drivers will be reported by the moderator.  This will allow all affected drivers the opportunity to present their case before the incident is moderated.  This should ensure there are no surprises when the moderator's report is published and hence appeals will be less likely.  If you haven't received a PM about an incident before the link below the results table is removed, you can be sure that you will not appear in the moderator's report.

The chassis token system is explained on the Privateers standings page. Please ensure you choose a chassis that is within your budget, which can be seen by hovering the mouse over your points total in the standings.

Please restrict chat to pit messages including at the end of the race until ALL drivers still racing have crossed the line.

Please Note:
The kerbs on this track are very low and can easily be ridden in order to improve laps times.  Drivers are reminded that riding the kerbs is permitted but there must always be at least two wheels within the track boundary at any one time.  If three or four wheels have been placed outside the track boundary then a driver is deemed to have left the track and will subsequently have to perform a rejoin with the necessary caution this dictates.  If you have knowingly overdone the kerb riding or left the track for any othe reason in practice, please abort the lap in order to not post an illegal lap time.

The only exception is Turn 11, Bridge Corner.  It is possible to run wide here and use the pit lane entry to recover to the track without loosing momentum.  However it is not clear if this line is any quicker than maintaining the racing line within the track boundary.  Consequently drivers will not be penalised for running wide here and any affected practice lap times will be allowed to stand.  However the wide line will technically involve a rejoin and consequently any contact incurred will be the responsibility of the rejoining driver.

Very difficult track.I don't know if i am a bad driver but this is the most difficult track in GPL.Is enough to be wrong in one trajectory to go out the track.

I’m always cautious with new tracks - & there are quite a few of them on this season’s calendar. Fran’s post does not give me confidence!
I think this is a new version of the track. Are the existing lap records relevant to this track. I got caught out with Pacific Raceway where the new track is quicker than the old version?

No, the new one is quite a bit slower. There are corners that aren't there in the old version.

edit: 67F1 record at old track is a 1:12.7, new one is 1:21.7, I've managed a 1:23.6 in Brab after two dozen laps

Fran is right. I would encourage people (Privateers) to practice this track before Sunday.
Several corners have a steep change in elevation - the entry is blind where they drop downhill.
There's a nasty bump on the back straight & there is generally less grip than you think should be there. Several places its very easy to lose the car.

Best effort so far was a 1.26.7 in the Brabham although I'm hoping to shave a bit more off.

I did Smiley

The laprecords are (still) linked to the old version, sorry for the confusion. This track might be a challenge, but personally I think it's a great track, very well made as well. I always encourage ppl to properly test before a race, especially a new track!

So, complaints about the track choice can be filed and adressed to me. Wink

Had a drive round there last night - exploring round the carpark & through a tent.
Unfortunately, not possible to drive under the large undercover area,  due to a level issue  - but still looks good.

Also had a spin round the track. There's an alarming scraping noise down the hill though;  I hope that won't be there at the weekend.

Tip: use a stiff suspension setup combined with more ride height to avoid to bottom out after the backstraight going up. The car will compress a lot under braking.

Bump rubbers, bring 'em. I'm actually right off the gas before the compression. Any possible tenths gained keeping it floored are lost trying to settle the car down before Bridge corner (and not go flying straight off with everything locked up). 1:23.43 best so far, keeping it off the kerbs and out of the pit entry (no perceptible gain using it, but nice to have a bit of extra space there, it's needed occasionally).

edit: Brab setup (needs work, but it's a start) and replay here: https://www.sendspace.com/file/0m8mpe

edit2: 1:23.09 in Ferrari, setup here:  https://www.sendspace.com/file/mzlbrl

edit3: 1:22.04 in Lotus, setup here: https://www.sendspace.com/file/97y14k

I imagine most by now are aware, this is yet another track where the full correct name, was not used in the title at the top of the page.  It's quite different from the old familiar version, and instead, it's a near perfect replica of the actual version, located somewhere in the U.S. of A. Cheesy  Indycar and Can-Am's raced there successfully, so why not go F1?

This is a result of how it was added into the SRou system, and also why we see the old version's laprecords. Had mentioned it in the mods forum, but not sure if Gizmo can or will fix it.

As for the racepost header, a year number never is used there to specify the version, it just states the name of the track. Drivers need to check the "Track" row for the right version in the racepost.

PS: thanks Dean.
