Season 30 - CANM66 Fun Race - Targa Florio

As a warm-up for the upcoming Fridays we will have a special event, the Targa!

We will do "only" one racing lap, (but the server will show 2) so please be kind if a faster car/driver is behind  Wink

IMPORTANT

Please start your last qualifying lap with minimum ~ 30min time left!
As GPL will shut the quali after ~11min overtiming, even if you are 100m from the finish line!  Shocked
You will start last!

Please end your race lap after the finish line within 250m!

The race will be run under INT rules and you have a free car choice.
You have unlimited shift+r !




Race List =   IGOR
Server = UKGPL_8
IP Address = look at IGOR
Race date = 20-05-2016
Qualification Time   = ~20:30  UK time -> 60min
Race Time = race starts at 21:30 UK time
Track = Targa
Variant = CANM66
Damage Model = INT
Race length = ~45 min -> 1 lap
Replay = you will get here ?

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

Have FUN!

Replay is HERE  Roll Eyes

I was doing a practice lap, and I was feeling pretty good until I hit a police car near the end of the lap.  whistling

Is this going to be 60FPS?

I've just installed the Mod so am trying to get to grips with a vaguely sane setup at the Mo.
I quite like the Genie, although should really run the McLaren-Elva if only because I know one of it's many owners  Cool

Yes Tim UKGPL does all races with 60fps  Roll Eyes

CANM66 uses the 60fpsV2newmod  Wink

I think the car choice is not so important for the Targa, as the experience and knowledge of the track counts more.

I will not take the ChapE, as the 2 gears would be a bigger handicap here...

The server time ran down and Mark J refused to get off track.  He ran for 5m after time lapsed.  I'm not going to wait while some other guy shows no consideration whatsoever for other members.

Doni: MJ was still on his qual lap. From the race post: "...GPL will shut the quali after ~11min overtiming...". Normally, it's a lot shorter than this (about 1 1/2 laps worth of time).

Normal mad first mile, then loneliness. C'est le Targa.

Oops.  I thought that was the accepted procedure from the original post - and at that point I wasn't sure if we were actually racing or just qualifying.  I think I was actually watching Doni on Prib to see that it wasn't just me finishing the qual lap by myself.  Sorry about that Doni.  I shouldn't have bothered anyway, I was far too rusty to drive the track without hitting something every minute anyhow.

Congrats to Greg for the win!

Yes, I was aware of that adder to the GCR's, Dean, but...  It's a royal pain to have to standby waiting for someone to finish a lap.  As I'm sure you're aware, I made mention of a policy limiting post session running in qualifying in the S29 Review.

My post above is not a personal dig at Mark.  He and I go way back as you are no doubt aware.  From where MJ was on track when I finally threw in the towel and left the server, I would have expected him to need another 5m to complete his lone lap for a total of 10m or so past time expired.  I just don't think that this is proper and as a club, we really do need to limit running after the checker has flown in Q.

Congrats Tim and Axel!

I disagree with Doni. Impatience and consideration are not synonymous.

As GPL will shut the quali after ~11min overtiming,

I noticed this in my track.ini.

[ statistics ]
reference_value = 2130.0

That is the number of seconds you are allowed to complete a lap after time expires in qualifying. 2130/60=35.5 minutes. I was watching Mark when time expired. I knew he wasn't likely to complete his lap within 11 minutes from where he was when time expired. I never thought he'd finish the lap. I didn't mind waiting though. I enjoyed checking out the scenery while Mark drove. It's the first time I ever noticed Ginetto standing on the curb in Campofelice. Smiley I've always been too busy driving to notice. I apologize for chatting before Mark finished.

I also found you can drive up on the Ferrari car carrier that sits on the right when exiting the pits. Smiley

I'm pleased with my drive. I had one lap shortly before qualifying started. I have my first pit stall located on the first straight in Campofelice. So while I was waiting for qualifying to start, I got my 5th gear set correctly for the Buonfornello Straight. I got another lap in qualifying and then a 3rd lap in the race. Not bad at all for little practice. But I do at least 2 laps every month working on my GT times and setups here.

Finally I have the course memorized well. I rarely forget where I am on the track now, and I'm getting to point I can "see" the upcoming turns. This event showed me two places I'm still not anticipating correctly. I'm braking in two places where I should be holding the throttle even and letting the lateral Gs reduce my speed.

That was a good race lap. I quickly scanned my replay to see how many mistakes I made. I hit a wall 5 times, spinning once. 2 times were a light graze that a real car likely would have tolerated with little more than a loss of paint. I keep trying to get a GT around this track cleanly. There is only one World Record lap for the GTs on GPLRank. I hope someday I can post some more WRs even though they won't be the fastest laps. I've managed 20 minutes without contact or an off. Now I just need to learn to do the full 35 minutes.

The M1B actually seemed a little easier than the GTs. I can point the nose in much better with the throttle. The key is not using too much throttle. I was hoping I could run my fastest lap ever and break into the 34:00's. I got close. I was only 10 seconds off my Porsche 910 time. Since I was stoked from the event, I decided to give the 712M another try after the event. I may have run a cleaner lap with it than I did with the M1B during the race. I got my first 34:00. 34:17.28 with the 712M. Smiley Now that Axel has got me obsessed with this track again, I'll have to give the M8F a try soon. With all the cars in GPL, this track alone could keep me occupied for years. 5 years of trying to master the GTs here has limited me to less than 10 laps in all the other mods combined. Maybe by the time I can drive this track like Nurburgring, there will be a 1970 or 1971 Alfa Type 33/3 to drive too. That's one of my biggest wishes for GPL, to drive a 3 liter Type 33 at Targa Florio.

Thanks guys.

I've really enjoyed my time around the Targa these past few days. I used a default set-up on my first practice lap (the day before the race). Then I moved up to Tommie's set-up for the qualify session. Thanks Tommie.
http://www.simracing.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=13742.0

In first few minutes of the race, I was following David. He went wide on a left hand corner. I saw what happened early enough to slow properly for the corner. However, I could not keep from following him off track. I rejoined without checking prib. I owe an apology to Dean for merging as he was passing me. After that, I was happy that I minimized my mistakes a little more than in my practice, and I carried a little more speed in the corners. 

Thanks all,
WC

I'm slightly ashamed to admit that I haven't driven Targa since recording that lap for my GTRank - I honestly don't know why as this race reminded me of why it's such an awesome circuit.

I'm happy with 2nd given Greg's training regime here - I have to admit being tempted now to try and re-learn it again and go for some proper records  Grin
