Pre-Season Fun Race – Willow Springs

This is a test event for Season 28. It will feature in the Graduates series (67s), but we will be using the 1965 car set for this race and its s free choice of chassis.

Willow Springs International Motorsports Park is located in Willow Springs near Rosamond and Lancaster, California, about an hour north of Los Angeles. It is a historic race track, in existence more than 60 years. It is the oldest permanent road course in the United States.[1] Construction began in 1952, with the inaugural race held on November 23, 1953.[2] The main track is a challenging 2.5-mile (4.0 km) long road course that is unchanged from its original 1953 configuration. The interesting elevation changes and high average speeds make it a favorite of many road racing drivers.

A chance to set some UKGPL lap records - we have not raced here before.

We will use the 60fpsV2newmod for the whole of the mini-series.

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

The race will be run under INT rules. A maximum of two resets are allowed, followed by a compulsory stop and go in the pits.

The race will run on one server, UKGPL8.

Race List = IGOR
Server = UKGPL_8
IP address = TBA
Race date = Sunday 01-03-2015
Time = 21:00 UK time (21:00 GMT)
Track =  Willow Springs
Race length = (30 laps) 40 -45 minutes
Variant = 1965
Damage Model = Intermediate
Qualifying time = minimum of 30 minutes

Help
I'm using the 67 update that allows me to have more than 64 tracks - I have 66 now available through GEM.

I cannot, however, upload Willow Springs as when I try to install it says I have exceeded my limit. I could delete a few tracks but I suspect there is a fix?

No way this is a bug in GEM...
GEM will allways set it back to 64 tracks whenever you let it save settings  Roll Eyes

So just delete some seldom used tracks in 67season.ini

This is a limitation of the old track installer, which is not aware of installations with the patch for more tracks installed.

The way I've found of sorting this is to cut the bottom section of 67season.ini's contents up to event 63 to a temporary text file, change the max tracks to 63, save 67season.ini. Install the track, copy the previous stuff back to 67season.ini at the bottom of the file and amend the "duplicate" event so that it's at the bottom of the file with its real event number. Save  67season.ini and you should then see it in GEM.

What I always do is rename 67season.ini to 67seaso2.ini, and copy gp.ini and rename the copy to 67season.ini . This way you'll always have the default Papy tracks installed and you'll have room to install more tracks with the track installers. You can also now copy 67seaso2.ini and rename to alltrack.ini,  whenever you feel like it you can always copy the newly installed tracks to alltrack.ini for a complete list.

GEM+ automatically ticks the 'enforce 64 track limit' box when you click on the seasons button, if you forget to untick it every time it deletes every track in every season.ini file. So, when you have assembled an alltrack.ini file it's best to also keep a backup of that in case you forget to untick the box.

Ah, just missed the start. At least I got some practice laps in Smiley. Shame it won't count for lap record though Grin

Done many laps here for oAo, great track and should be a good race!

Plus, good to have some workarounds for the GEM+ 64 tracks bug!
