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: Free choice of car.

Did a couple of laps in each car with mostly default setups, and they are a good bunch.
The Ford might be fast, but the visibility is so poor I had several cut track warnings so gave it up.
One of them, the Cuda? has a gear lever somewhere in the roof lining based on the driver
smacking his hand on the window ever time you change gear  Roll Eyes
I liked the Z28, and the Firebird was not far behind. The Javelin was also pretty quick and not
too hard to drive.

Thanks for the heads up Matt. Hope i can find the time to try all of these cars before race day. I guess not. So it is nice to read your first impressions.

I was perusing the upcoming race calendar last night and was smugly thinking "oh! we are doing the Yank V8's again this season, that's handy coz I just about got to grips with those cars last year"

Then I spotted that they are a different bunch from, a different era.........rats!!!! 

Only had time to try one car last night for about 3 laps and it is quite plain that the bends are actually not only in the wrong place but also the wrong radius !!!   Roll Eyes

Yes Clive, with these yank tanks you should avoid trying to steer with the steering wheel, as it virtually does not work...  :Try persuading it with your right foot.

Ha ha yes. Totally agree re the bends at this track Clive; I've raced on it a few times now and never seem to get it right. Love this class though, cars that corner as if on rails just get further and further away from me when driven by Aliens... sometimes these beasts get the better of even  the hottest shoe..... Wink

Weird, the gearchange looked perfectly normal to me in the Cuda, but on the other hand, I have a whole row of rear view mirrors in the roof (all showing the same); that's quite distracting..

I did a couple of laps yesterday evening after the P&G event in the Javelin and the Ford. They where equally fast for me with only .2 sec between them. And i can not really say that i like one better than the other too. Leaves me no choice but to make more time free for a bit of GTL practice. Sorry family! Tongue

I hope to make the race on Monday, this being a good evening for me at the moment. I did some races in the GC muscle car league, the last being about three years ago. I still have the pack installed on my PC. I tried it on line and it still seems to work for this race.

I think I will either drive the Javelin (I did three skins for this car) or the Ford XB Falcon GT. It should be fun hustling that thing around.

I hope I can keep up. I think I only managed three races last year and that was in P&G. I was never that quick when at my peak but used to enjoy racing some of the slower cars. I can be great fun near the rear of the grid.
 
I’m back in the driver’s seat now and I’ve dusted off my G27 ready for action.

It might be a good idea to delete your existing car set and use our download. Some of the cars may well have been updated since you last used them. It would be a shame if on race night you discovered that you couldn't join because someone was using a car that was different from you already had. It's up to you of course but it might prevent any online miss-matches.

Also not all the GC cars are used.

Done, I had a separate installation of GC Muscle Cars and I had updated it certainly over a year ago. It may have worked but as you say best not to chance it. I have now downloaded the files and installed it in GTL. I will try it on line shortly.

I begin braking at the previous turn as good controlled entry is key to a quick exit.
