Moderator's Report

Ronnie started from P3 on the grid but his engine let go on the long straight having a big say in the outcome of the race. Iestyn takes the win & fastest lap, breaking Rob Fleurke's winning streak. Gismo finishes second from pole & 3rd place goes to Dean.
Thanks to those who filed reports.


Server replay time: 0h01m07s

Ronnie's engine fails on the back straight. Baab is caught out by the speed differential & runs into Ronnie, then its chaos. The following drivers are effected are out of the race; Ronnie, Baab, Arf, Turkey Machine & Andreas. Doni, Greg, Pelle & Rob are caught up but can continue. Dean manages to find a quick line through the mess. Jethro almost manages the same feat but the space his was aiming at is squeezed as Doni recovers. Nevertheless a more cautious approach would have been advisable & extended his race.

Season 28 Works Trophy - Round 4 - Albi

For this round we visit the small town of Albi in the Midi-Pyrénées region. The original, longer circuit was closed in 1955 following the Le Mans disaster. Racing resumed at the nearby Aerodrome in 1959 which is the circuit we now know as Albi. The Chicane du Sequestre was introduced in 1988 but we will be using the original layout as raced in 1967.

Race List = IGOR
Server = UKGPL_9
IP = 37.157.48.87
Race date = Sunday 26-04-2015
Time = 21:00 UK time (21:00 GMT)
Track = albi67
Race length = 42 Laps (50 minutes)
Variant = 1967
60fps patch used = 60fpsV2newmod
Damage Model =  Pro
Qualifying time = 30 minutes

Replays Available here

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

Moderating The red zone will be fully moderated. For this event the red zone will be from the start to Ligne Droite Tarn on the first lap . Other moderation will be on reported incidents only.  However any incidents that occur in the red zone that are not reported by the drivers may 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

The chassis token system is explained on the Works 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.

Pelle there is no problem with the servers, if a training server is requested it will show in IGOR.

UKGPL_8 will be running this afternoon Albi 67s.

Maybe we need a sticky thread where training-servers can be announced or requested  Roll Eyes

I know...because I'm R1  Grin
...I was wondering of there is no server up and running (the answer I got in another thread)...but it was only to help, so people could get a little training, because we were more in Vroc which called for a Albi server.

Pre-race trials for Albi in a Lotus and Brabham were manifestly disappointing.  I couldn't get the BT24 any closer than 5/10 to my BRM PB and the Lotus was only 6/10 quicker.  Hardly worth spending 20 tokens on the Lotus so...  It's the Beast from Bourne yet again.  Sigh...

O goody, more L1 carnage, haven't seen any of that for a while.....er.....

Tonight, it looks like Ronnie moved over to where Baab was. I was far enough behind to move to the side, but Robert F was unable to to avoid one of the cars and got bounced into me and took both my wheels off....

My engine blew Arf and I lost power which obviously caught those out behind me.

Apologies to Bob I think who had the misfortune to be nearby when my engine went pop. I thought it might eventually but not on the first lap!!!! Sorry for spoiling your nights racing and anyone else caught up.
I know how it feels my race was ended on the first lap of the last race in Zandvoort. It happens sometimes. Its frustrating for everyone including myself. Good luck to those still running. Off to Targa again tonight in a 65.

Ah...thought something strange was going on, expected you to pull clear Ray.

Was feeling like the village idiot for a good 15 mins there.  Disappointing but part of racing.

The damage to my car was mighty, wiped all 4 limbs off, car looked like summary outta 2001 space odyssey...or summat.

Hard luck to those involved in the first lap shunt. I just managed to avoid it all by taking to the grass.

I do enjoy racing at Albi as the simple layout allows for a competitive field and sure enough the first 10 cars on the grid were within a second of the pole time.

After the first lap there wasn't really much to report on my race. Dean passed me early on and I didn't have to pace to hold on to him. From then on it was a lonely run to 4th place.

There was a bit of excitement towards the end. My beloved Repco unit decided to become an elaborate paperweight and blew on the last corner causing me to coast on the line. Clive came oh-so-close to overtaking me but I just managed to hold on  Smiley. It was nice to finish a race, this race was a relatively consistent effort for me at least.

Congrats to Iestyn and all other finishes. See you all at the next one.

Sorry for the wobbling whenyou were overtaking me on about lap 10 Rob.  I missed a gear (much less frequent now) which made the braking a bit awkward.  Race was going quite well (even if I was lapped twice) but I still tend to mistime the clutch a bit which causes me to over rev the engine slightly when changing up.  I think that contributed to my engine going pop with 7 laps to go (the race leaderboard showed ignition but it seemed to push out a lot of black smoke at one point).  

Anyway, over 50% complete so I should get some points (for ninth I think?).

Was happy with my quali with a good PR Smiley

Start was very slow and cautious in front of me, but then Ray and Bob made contact. Checked up but somehow couldn't/didn't avoid Ray who was warping a bit on the roof. All sorts of crap happened to many after that Sad

In a way I was lucky to continue, since many had to retire, but car was up to 1s slower a lap, also didn't have any topspeed...my best lap in the race was pretty good considering all the damage...

Congrats Iestyn, Peter and Dean, and finishers...commiserations to the DNF's...

PS: didn't want to pass you there Phil, it played out like that though, and also missed a gear there Tongue

This beats the hell out of the recent 69X romp at Montjuic.  Smiley

After being kamikazed by Jethro, my BRM was a little wobbly but I soon adapted.  I chased Sinister Clive for the longest time but couldn't make inroads.  Robert was next down and closing but once on my tail, couldn't seem to administer the coup de grace.  As RF notes above, his engine was a bit off-song.  As the finish neared, I had hopes of a P6 placing but the H-16 gave it up on the pit straight with but a handful of laps to run.  At least it was a short walk back to the pits.

Grats to Iestyn for the win and I'm sad to see only 7 finishers, thought it was a T1 crash, but could see in the replay how unlucky you guys were on the straigth :-/

Set a PB after some laps in Q so I focused on adjusting to race pace for the rest of qual, proud to have taken my first pole in UKGPL, taking aside that I had a faster car than most on the grid ;-)

Iestyn stayed behind me in the first couple of laps even though he was close enough to make a move a couple of times, around lap 14 with around 1 sec gap down to Iestyn I overshot my braking for DD and went backwards into the hay and that was pretty much the last I saw of Iestyn who slowly but surely pulled away from me - too bad, cause would have been fun to at least make him pass me, seing as he was clearly the faster one..
Beside that 1 error I had a steady race and I guess partly thanks to the chaos of L1 I had a decent gap down to P3.. Thx to the backmarkers for great passing and sorry to see my fellow dane Pelle once again missing out on luck..

Bad luck Doni, engines can blow faster when the car has damage, even when it's only chassis damage (I think that's why you also blew up with the 65 East London race). That is my experience. I was extremely lucky to finish yesterday with the extent of damage I had...

Was looking forward to a good fight with you, but only could make up time, braking, entering and midcorner, and then losing out on the exits being down on power. Also car was a bit unpredictable and snappy, and so I lost touch again...

I wouldn't have been able to make a clean pass I think, apart from a late banzai divebomb blockpass or so Tongue


Should have done a better job avoiding Ray arguably, I slowed and tried to check up, but he kept on going straight on the roof...didn't want to brake too hard on the straight knowing the field was close behind, and didn't want to change lines not knowing where everyone was...Colin (Arf) did a great job, and was very unlucky to be hit by me when I bounced off Ray...what a shame so many suffered...
