Season 30 Historics Trophy – Round 8 – Watkins Glen

For the eighth round of the Season we go to Watkins Glen, New York. Watkins Glen International (nicknamed "The Glen") is an automobile race track located in Watkins Glen, New York, at the southern tip of Seneca Lake. It was long known around the world as the home of the Formula One United States Grand Prix, which it hosted for twenty consecutive years (1961–1980), but the site has been home to road racing of nearly every class, including the World Sportscar Championship, Trans-Am, Can-Am, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the International Motor Sports Association and the IndyCar Series.

The circuit is known as the Mecca of North American road racing and is a very popular venue among fans and drivers. The facility is currently owned by International Speedway Corporation.

This will be a 2 Litre event.

Drivers are required to complete 50% distance to score points.

There is no Red Zone for this series, moderating will be on reported incidents only. Please remember that an additional 1 place penalty is awarded for Lap 1 incidents.

We will be using my server for this race.  I haven't used it for a while so I have set it up as a practice sever to give everyone a chance to check they can connect OK.

Please test your connections, any problems post something on this thread.

Hi, Phil!  Smiley

Just jumped onto the server...07:30 my time...to pop in a couple of laps.  It ran a treat.  I'm sure that we're good to go!  Smiley

Thought I'd try to avoid any first few corners mishaps by starting near the back, but there weren't any. GJ all on clean start.

Worked my way up to 7th (hard work it was too, getting past Bastian) but wasn't having any luck building a gap over him and Marco. Then engine let go on lap 9 with a dangdangdang noise (that was probably coming from the cockpit, tbh).

Tough race! Spent the first few laps getting pressured by Andreas before managing to break the tow. Began to slowly catch Syd for 3rd and proceeded to have an-almost race long battle. It was impossible to pass Syd in the 3 ltr Brabham so simply did my best to harry him through the corners. Eventually he clipped a kerb on the loop which pushed him wide, allowing me to pass. Hard luck there Syd, you were solid as a rock up until that point  Smiley.

Was content with 3rd place, but unexpected got promoted to 2nd after Greg's unfortunate demise. Congrats to Tris for the win and to Andy for rounding the podium.

Thanks for providing the server Phil, no issues my end  Smiley.

Thanks to Phil for a solid server.
I thought that this was a three litre race until tonight. Ok then, I'll take the little BRM.
Kept my position in the clean start, following Andreas and a gap built up behind me.
Andreas had an unexpected bad exit after a while and I just sneaked through. He stayed just a few tenths behind for the rest of the race as others in front dropped out. I could hear him lifting early on just about every corner to give me some space. I suppose I was holding him up a bit, especially in the last two corners, but I had the position and he required a mistake from me. Intense stuff. Very well driven, Andreas.
Well done to all who finished, commiserations for those who didn't.

Server connection was great for me.

The option of the 3,0L car was just enough to keep me in touch with a few others. After the first few laps I had settled into P10, behind my team mate Rainier. With the tow & extra horse power I could follow, but never quite enough to attempt a pass. After a few laps we picked up Bastian recovering from running wide at the last corner. We stayed in that train for about 20 laps until I missed my brake point into the loop. Race over.
Saved me the challenge of being lapped without the aid of Pribluda.

Results uploaded.  Pleased the server was fine, no discos or warpy connections.  Wish I could say the same for my driving, using gear lever with left hand now so I am making it hard for myself.  Missed one too many gears and engine expired just over half distance.  Relieved to score some points  clap

Seems something broke when I went wide. I simply couldn't turn into right corners any more. I was doing 1.15 laps after that for a while, got caught by two cars and then the engine exploded with 5 laps to go. So something that was looking good for a podium ended up in retirement.

Busted engines seemed to be the order of the day as a number of members...including me...suffered blowups.  Hardly used to the point of abuse, I was considerably annoyed at this result.

Grats to Sam on a good P2 and to Andrew for rounding out the podium.  Gutted for you, Greg.  Sad  No plaudits at all for Tristan, I'm afraid, as he claimed pole position by slipstreaming me in Q then promptly jacked me around on what was to be my final qualifying lap.  Manners and respect, young fella!  Apparently, my giving you the chop on the straights did not compute.

As for the race, I decided to DQ myself to start dead last after missing my PB by about 1/2s as I didn't want to start mid-field with the dangers of the Loop on Lap01.  Cruised it down to that treacherous corner with a good cushion of safety ahead.  It was quite a surprise to see that everyone survived the pass through the Loop.  I closed on Phil over that first lap but then he got crossed up coming off the back straight and I had to spin to miss him.  Groan...  Just passed 1/4 distance, I managed to work my way back up to P9 just ahead of Dave and not far behind Marco when the BRM V-8 went off-song.  C'est la guerre...

Phil...  Server seemed to work fine but I did get a quick spike in my Q bar at one point.  It settled back nicely, tho.  TY for hosting.

Most, or all of us have experienced this, and it's not the Sim that's changed.  It's the fps that's changed.  I'd guess one gear change in 10, or maybe it's 1 in 50, hits a small timing glitch.  The fix would be to slow every gear change if manual, and hope others nearby do the same. euro

Ah...  I wasn't aware of that potential result of the fps patch, Martin.  TY for the headsup on it but it's unlikely to mollify my driving technique.  It will remain suspect.  Wink

A couple of other notes...

We missed Evil.  MIA.  Hope that's not a trend.

Also, after retiring early, I stayed on the server to record the entire race replay and did not sign off til everyone had crossed the S/F line.  Why, then, would my reason for not finishing be listed as a 'Disco'?

Hi Doni

The server tends to list everyone as disco no matter what reason.  I amended the reason for me and Billy on importing the results simply because I know what happened to me and Billy.  However I can manually amend the retirement reason at any time.  So I've been through the GPLRA Mechanical Report and checked for all exploded engines and the replay for the remaining drivers and updated the actual reason in the results table. 

The results now show we actually had 5 engine failures.  Not sure if this is more than usual because we don't routinely correct the retirement reasons.
