That's handy!  The next Fun-Liga event is also Buenos Aires so I only need to practice one circuit!    thumbup1

So this is a different version of the Buenos Aires circuit that is used in the 55mod Rank?

My first 55 race.  It was fun but easy to mess up on the brakes when going for a pass LOL.

I tried the Vanwall first but I couldn't see anything in the mirrors so I had to swap to a Ferrari.  Frame rate was very bad for the first lap (about 30 fps) but then it settled down.

I had a close battle with Fran for the first few laps but I couldn't get past.  It isn't easy to overtake in these cars.

I liked the 4 by 3 grid. It didn't seem to cause any problems either which was a bonus  Grin
For some reason (Practice probably) I wasn't especially near what I was capable of here in the Vanwall. I'd hoped to try a ferrari but just didn't have time to make a setup having only gotten back from Rockingham a little earlier.

Does anyone know of a fix for the Fez 555 brake indicator light? My 2 minute try showed me that it didn't work - the other reason I just jumped into a Vanwall...

I managed a few laps in practice between computer crashes.

The blue screen of death seemed to happen whenever I went off circuit.

I'm not sure which is cause and which is effect but the power unit has gone belly up now as well.  The -5v supply has vanished.

The limited running that I did managed with all you fine folks suggested that it is the instinctive use of brakes to avoid hitting the gyrating car in front that makes the brakes vanish when you least expect!

I have sort of worked out how to drive these cars with pretend brakes, although Buenos Aries is a probably more forgiving track than some others. Will take a little more practice to get the hang of things. The combination of brake fade & slipstream is was a surprise.

 Hope that you can join us on Wednesday Will, I still remember some epic battles with you in the past  Wink

I had the Connaught running quite well in Qually , but made a rookie mistake when I joined the race with the wrong setup. The 4 x 3 grid felt very correct for these cars, even if it was a little scary going dpwn to T1!!

It took me a couple of laps to work out why the car was not doing what I wanted it to. It was T1 that showed the problem, because I just could not get the car to drift under control like I had in practice and a couple of trips into the fencing confirmed my suspicions. I was going to be a hazard to other cars if I continued, so I quit.
But I hope to be back for another go on Wednesday. with the correct setup!!

Good to hear that you are finding your way with the 55's Bill and Phil, and I feel for Clive and his PC woes
