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.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to race this evening as I have friends visiting. A pity because I now know the track and the cars. At least my back is better now (fingers crossed). I still have to resolve the slipping peddle unit issue when racing on-line.
 
I did a practice session off-line yesterday in the Javelin and managed a 1:42.4. I’m sure I could go a bit quicker with more practice.

I hope all enjoy their race and hope to be present next week. thumbup1

Well done the podium, whoever you were, but you left the game so quickly after crossing the finish line I wasn't able to pass on any grats!

Some good close racing mid-table for quite a few laps. Wink I just couldn't get enough momentum on the straights to pass you Tony, until your spin towards the end. But then you passed me, along with two others with a few 100 yds to go - I forgot to add my usual 10% of fuel into the tank, so I shouldn't be surprised that I ran dry, albeit with just a 1/3 of a lap to go. Embarrassed But overall, a very enjoyable race. And I didn't get lapped this time! laugh

Had my share of disco's due to a bad internet connection on my side. After the 3rd disco in qually i desided to restart my router and pc. But then i got to the lobby only to see the race had started already... Sad really gutted as i had a good race pace (yes i actualy had some practice for this one) Oh well, hope you guys had a good race anyway. Congrats to the podium and a solid result by Roguk! thumbup2

To bad i can't do the TVR vs Lotus race (again! This is possibly my favourite class, but can't seem to make most of the races so far.) as i am away for the whole of next week. Roll Eyes

Thanks a lot José  thumbup1

Another a bit disappointing finish for me - simply impossible to beat the 1:43  Tongue . 2 minutes before the start I found an online setup
for a Charger which I simply adapted for the Cuda  Roll Eyes. Made it easier to drive but unfortunately without any further progress in times  Sad
After an unusual good start I could avoid all the mess and found myself in 4th position  Shocked  which I lost during the next three laps.
Then I had my first off and dropped to my well known second to last position where I stayed for the rest of the race.  angel

Well that was an exercise in frustration management.

Improved my pb considerably in qual, but still only good enough for 6th on the grid. 

Start and L1 went ok until the chicane, when Hayman knocked me into a spin and down to the bottom of the field. As he waited for me to pass, I had to go around on the outside, and ran wide onto the grass losing even more time..  censored

Set about chasing the field.  Got past Bill and later Kurt, when they went off.  Next passed Steve at the end of the straight.  Following lap, in the same place, Tony and I had a 'who-can-brake-last' duel.  Tony won - and I got past  Wink

Next up was Matt, but he made it easy, when he went off at the end of the straight.  Thus I was up to 5th, but then I ran into Roger.  Knew from last years V8-series how difficult he can be to pass, and he was more than up to form yesterday. Under power his car was faster than mine, and so would extend a small gap in the straight sections. Thus any attempts at slipstreaming or outbraking were out of the question.  Through the curves, you can only pass if the driver ahead makes a sufficiently big mistake, but Roger stubbornly refused to comply!

Lap after lap after lap, all I could do was yank my hair out in big lumps, as I watched Tony & Co slowly reel me in again.  Eventually he got close, and past, when a light tap to Roger's rear sent my car wide through the corner after the chicane.  Tony didn't have more luck with Roger, so now I was stuck behind the two of them.

Soon had Hayman in close attendance behind me, and after a number of close laps, he ran us both off again - thankfully without losing as much time as before. Seems we both rejoined rather rudely in front of Matt - apologies for that  oops  A few corners later, we came upon a spinning Tony. Narrowly avoided his car, and for a change had a clear track ahead. Managed to extend a tiny gap to Hayman, but then I caught Roger once more, and status quo ensued. That allowed Hayman to close up again, but after some close laps, he spun off - I believe he hit one of those titanium corner poles ?

Matt replaced him, but didn't get too close before the race ended.  Congrats to the podium - and to Roger for that matter, for not bending under all that pressure.

Cheers,
Erling

It was not looking too good in quali and my lack of any preparation was obvious with the front row some 2 secs a lap quicker than I could squeeze out of the 'cuda.  I ended up on the second row, but only by the smallest of margins with Matt supposedly alongside in 3rd qually position. This was shaping up to be a tough race.

The front row shot away at the start and I just tried to hang in there for the first laps. ( not sure what happened to Matt??) When I eventually risked a glance at the positions it was to discover that I was in 3rd and with a healthy couple of seconds back to 4th.

Jose and his shadow Marc, were setting a tremendous pace and I was surprised that I could stay in touch, although I was driving at my limit to be there. The scrap in front of me was intense, and I actually dropped back a second or so as contact between them looked certain at some point... and I might just profit if I did not get caught up in any action  Wink. But, somehow the two of them maintained an incredible pace at very close quarters without contact  I Am Not Worthy, when contact looked like the only possible outcome!!

I stayed with them until about half distance when I realised that I had been abusing the tyres terribly to drive at that pace. With a 20 second gap back to 4th, and still the possibility that the front 2 would take each other off, I eased up.
Gradually the lead 2 pulled away and the cars behind dropped back, so my race became increasingly lonely, and just like Roger who was defending his 4th place, Jose and Marc up front refused to run each other off the road, or make a mistake. ALthough Marc found a way past Jose at some point, so maybe there was a small mistake in there somewhere?

I did wonder if I would get caught as my tyres wore down to the rims, but it looks like everyone else had similar problems because the gaps stayed more or less the same.
Grats to Marc and Jose  on a stunningly fast pace and close quarter driving, and well done Rog for holding it all together as various opponents tried to steal 4th place. I was watching the procession of cars in 5th place, and the gap between them and Rog, for the second half of the race. It was obviously very close at times!!

What a fantastic nights racing!
Great cars, tricky circuit and some skilled drivers who can run bumper to bumper for lap after lap without taking each other out. That's what I call top drawer sim-racing.
 clap clap clap
Had some good dices myself. First few laps I found myself high up the order and following Erling as he tried to pass the very wide Roger. Stayed close hoping that they would take each other out. That didn't happen but a small mistake at the hairpin after the chicane let me squeeze past Erling. "Ha", i thought, "now I'll show Erling how you pass other drivers". But it was not to be. Roger just got wider and wider and did not make a single mistake for all of the laps that I followed him, and boy did I try hard to pass him. Eventually my tyres let go, I span and the world and his wife passed me by. I was fuming! Small consolation passing the luckless Steve who had parked up after suffering a fuel deficiency.

I was 3rd on the grid, but made a poor start and then got shoved almost off track in T1, and followed
Hayman and Erling in the grassy 1st chicane incident. Had some good times catching and passing
people, then came up behind the famous "Roger Roadblock" I might have made a pass stick if I had
counted the correct marker post to brake at  Shocked but was wrong sighted, and one pole too late and went flying
off at the end of the straight  taz regained the track only to find I had jumped back in Kurt's way and got a
deserved thump for my rudeness, not sure the second thump was warranted  Roll Eyes but hey such is racing  angel
The car was by now quite "modified" no front splitter, some creative extra curves and tyres well into the red
so was sort of catching the bunch in front, but had to take advantage of others' misfortunes to get a place back
Top marks to Roger for not being spooked by all these cars diving around in his mirrors  thumbup1
