Season 29 - Friday Sports Car Trophy - Round 20 - Le Mans Night

The final round of the Friday Sports Car series is on the classic Sports Car track, the Le Mans circuit, we use the nbsarthe version.
Most famous race in the world is probably the 24hours at Le Mans. It has also hosted several Grand Prix including the first ever - the French Grand Prix of 1906. The Grand Prix name ("Great Prize") referred to the prize of 45,000 French francs to the race winner. The franc was pegged to the gold at 0.290 grams per franc, which meant that the prize was worth 13 kg of gold!

In S29 we will race F2 and Sport Car mods alternating.
This Trophy is intented as a fun series, so keep the fairness high and respect drivers with different skills.  Wink  

Handicapping:
Heavies - have allways free car choice.
Lights   -  each F2 car can be used only once! Only one GT can be used twice!
Any illegal use of a car will be a DQ! So make shure you have a plan  thumbup1

Drivers must complete 50% of the race distance to score.
ONE reset is allowed but the Shift R must be followed by a Stop & Go in the pit lane within TWO laps.

Please check the Season 29 pages for details regarding rules and the Friday Trophy pages in particular.

Race List =  IGOR
Server = UKGPL_8
IP Address = look at IGOR
Race date = 18-03-2016
GPL mod = F2
60fps patch used = 60fpsV1
Track dir = nbsarthe
Qualification = 20:45  UK time -> 45min
Race = race starts at ~21:30 UK time
Race length = ~45 min -> 14 laps
Damage Model = INT
Replay = you will get here

Please restrict chat to emergency messages only, including at the end of the race until ALL drivers still racing have crossed the line.
Using the "no letterbox" patch makes chat messages in car obsolete, so you better uncheck it in GPL options Wink

There will be moderation only for reported incidents. Please submit incident reports within a week after the race so that the moderators report may be out before the next race.


GLA and have FUN

It's been a long time since I ran 28 laps at Lemans. I used to do it regularly before racing online.

I might need one of those things some day soon. I recently bought a Nissan Sentra that gets 40+ mpg. With it's 12+ gallon fuel tank. My bladder has a hard time out lasting my fuel now. Smiley

Maybe we can do a LeMans special in the easter break with 2x 16 laps using the grid tool Roll Eyes

Race starts, there's a knock on my door. "Busy!! Come back in hour!" (muffled reply)

5 mins later: knock knock. "BUSY!!!!! COME BACK IN AN HOUR!!!" (muffled reply)

5 mins later: knock knock. "PISS OFF!!! I'M BUSY!!!!" (muffled reply)

2 mins later: knock knock. Distraction contributes to spin in front of Tom (sry about that). "**** OFF!!! COME BACK LATER!!" (muffled reply)

3 mins later: knock knock, and spin into trees at Hunaudieres, ending the remote chance of catching anyone ahead, and any chance of having fun wrestling an uncooperative slug around for another 35 minutes. So **** this, go answer door. "Uh wanna come drinking with us for St. Pats?"

1) I don't drink often, and hate bars that have "music" so loud you can't hear yourself think, let alone carry on a conversation. Ya know, being SOCIAL???

2) I have a serious hate-on for anything remotely religious-influenced or originated, so yeah I really want to go "celebrate" some fictitious asshole from 1500 years ago. :facepalm:

3) Aren't we finally catching on, as a society, that cultural mis-appropriation is ignorant and offensive (see the shitstorm over "sexy squaw" Halloween costumes, etc.), especially when the sole object of the exercise is to see how much green puke we can generate?

/rant

Hope others have some fun, and grats on championship, Axel.

... Distraction contributes to spin in front of Tom (sry about that)...

No worries Dean, didn't hurt my chances.

Turns out I'd already used the big Fords, so I had to make do with a private Lola kindly offered by Mike de Udy. It ran well after some rollbar adjustments, but I was more than 5 seconds off the pace compared to the big boys. I managed to hang on during the initial stages of the race, but soon dropped back. After Dean caught me but retired soon after, I was driving a lonely race, trying to find the limits of the Lola in the mean time. I did manage to keep Doni behind me which was satisfying. Towards the end of the race I encountered Greg who'd beached his Ford at the hairpin. He managed to break loose but ended up one lap short of catching me. So I got to go to the podium after all Cheesy .

Grats Mark and Cookie, and all finishers!

I had to try the MK2B as it's the 50th anniversary of Bruce and Chris at Le Mans.  Despite obv being down on top speed it handled pretty well.  The plan was to draft Axel but after he went off Dean, Greg and me in 2B's had a gap.  Dean spun off unfortunately but Greg and me started drafting each other down the straight which was enough to be able to keep the gap back to Axel.  We kept this up until about 4 laps to go, then I figured it was time to start racing with Greg - and then he had an oopsie at Mulsanne as well.  Terrific fun guys, thanks.

Grats Mark to the win, great performance!

I wasn't happy with my pace, as I seem to have forgotten how to properly setup a GT Roll Eyes
Taking an old setup did help a little...
Seems driving mostly the open wheelers does influence my SC feeling Embarrassed

Thanks to all participants for a great FUN series.
