Congrats Rob and Tris! Excellent lap times Rob and Tristan.

After a terrible start, I had a lot of fun. I figured I was out of the race after a barrel roll at T1. I couldn't hold the outside line after bogging on line allowed Andy to get inside me entering T1. At least I didn't collect anybody else with my screw up. Smiley I thought of trying to reset but figured it was pointless since I assumed incorrectly that we were on Pro damage. The car felt bad the first 2 or 3 laps but wasn't bad enough to stop me. By lap 7 or 8 I was moving along well. I screwed up one time on lap 15. I missed my braking point by 50 meters. I hit that dreaded kerb at T1 again. lol It didn't take long to realize something was wrong. The car felt fine but I wasn't going as fast as I should have been. At the rate Tim was going the last few laps, he'd have caught me if he had another lap or two.

I drove well except for the 4 mistakes. Sam must have ESCed just before I was going to clip him. I didn't heed the skidmarks like I should have. I was surprised Sam screwed up so bad that I caught him. I was also a little surprised Tim made it easy for me too. I thought I could catch Tim. I never imagined I'd catch Sam.

Clive, I tried to destroy the engine. I made some lousy upshifts. I have doubts the engine would have allowed that on Pro damage. And look at Rob's rpms at the end of the straights! He tried more than I did to trash his engine. I have bigger doubts Rob's engine would have survived on Pro damage with those rpms.

managed the volatile Honda engine.

lol It looks like you tested it severely on the straights. It made me cringe watching it. I thought my 5th gear was short especially if ran much in the tow. It was good without a tow.

It's good to see that you're getting your computer running better. So when you upshift it acts like a mouse click too? I've thought of using JoyToKey to assign F10 or Shift+R to a button on my wheel.

Thanks guys. I'm glad to get to race in another of Joe's memorial races.

Thanks Greg, but it isn't so much about rpm's in top gear (even when more rpm's make the engine run hotter ofcourse) as long you're not overrevving upshifting and the Honda engine temp stays below 110C. I had set 5th gear 1 click taller than Hristo's race setup running just over 11,000 rpm, and a taller 3rd gear. You need the Honda to run below at least 110C (if the track allows I aim for 100-105C). Here it would run in the 103-110C region during a lap. Surely INT damage helps a bit, but most of the time shifted below 11,000 rpm in the race.

So in short terms, my racesetup was conservative and I drove conservative managing the engine! Check my last lap for example in GPLRA/gearchange analyzer and graph Tongue

As for JoyToKey, that is a solution if you don't use wheel software to assign button functions. Make sure you run it as admin, and associate profile with apps under settings. Wink

Congrats to Rob for a fine race win and to Tris and Greg for rounding the podium.

The first half of my race was pretty decent. I was hanging onto Tris in 3rd although not able to get close enough to make a pass. Eventually I lost the back end to spun out of contention. After rejoining, my consistency was appalling. I either spun, went wide, clipped the barrier, you name it, every flaming lap  Roll Eyes. Greg is correct, I was facing backwards in the Esses after yet another spin, just inviting another accident to happen, so quit to avoid a collision. Probably just as well, I was letting my frustrations getting the better of me.

Think I'll be attempting to drive in a calmer manner next time, easier said than done mind  Wink.

Great to see this Joe Shaw Trophy race so well supported  thumbup2

After the scare in qually, I was hugely relieved that there was no screen freeze during the race.   sweatdrop

The selection of tracks and cars was quite deliberate, plus these 3 races are at circuits we have not used for a while, so I was hoping to challenge the "elite" drivers and give some hope to the "gentlemen drivers". When I saw the race result and the Honda whitewash I wondered where I had gone wrong???!!  I suspect, like Robert, that Tripoli might give the Lotus/Eagle brigade more chance.

I was having probs with my GPL install after AVG updated screwed my computer and only got it finally sorted and ready to race on Monday afternoon. So no chance to get any serious practice, not that I would have lived with the leader's pace anyway.
I was happy to start at the rear of the grid once I knew I had zero chance of getting onto the front rows. We used to race this circuit quite often many years ago and T1 and T2 regularly caused chaos. So I figured that midfield was likely to be unsafe. So what did you guys do?? I think there was only one incident that took out 2 cars!!, instead of a total crashfest and 10 cars parked and bent?? Actually well done guys, it could have been much worse.
Slowly wound up the wick on the Waza and as others had minor offs and incidents I climbed from 15th to 5th and had a good dice with Doni and David...until I stopped looking where I was going and studied the mirrors to see how far behind Doni was. But on the up side I did see some interesting desert flora................
The rest of the race was a slow hunting down of Doni, but he was just quick enough to hold me off  Undecided

Grats to Rob Tris and Greg....hope we all get another great battle at Tripoli .

I thought the privateers might have fared a little better but ultimately the Works drivers were faster & made fewer mistakes. The finish was a white whale parade. We must all swap cars for Tripoli, maybe the Lotus will do better?

Bastian ran some fast laps during the race in the Eagle, if he had been consistent he could have done very well for example, but the Honda isn't a bad car here at all. Also Axel challenged until he made a mistake Wink

I'm pretty sure things will be more mixed up at Tripoli, but the Privs have to be consistent if they want to beat Works drivers. Love to see someone else winning the Trophy, but they have to race for it. I'm committed to give my best, especially for the remembrance of Joe and his family. It was great to meet Malcolm and Bev last year and receiving the Trophy that's still sitting here (will contact Malcolm soon how or what to do).

Hi Rob,
 Glad Joytokey gives the desired results..  thumbup1

Just one thing to bear in mind, suggesting the Throttle to action the mouse click rather than the shift up paddle/button was not a chance remark. Think of the odd oval race you might join..... Once in top gear you are likely to stay there for the duration where as you would probably have to back off the throttle during a typical lap.
