Moderator's Report

Server replay time: 0

Ronnie and Dave both reported this as Lap 19, but nothing happened on Lap 19, so I spent several long minutes going forward for 5 laps and then back, until I found Lap 17!! At which point my replay shows Reiver and Ronnie exchanging paint samples??
Reiver is faster into T3 and holds a tighter line, it looks like he thought he had completed the pass and allows his car to drift out towards the wall. Unfortunately Ronnie is still alongside and they tangle.
Ronnie was in Reiver's blind spot but Reiver should have been more careful until he could actually see Ronnie in his mirror before moving across.
Penalty for Reiver moving across the track


Server replay time: 0

Lap 36 Reiver is closing fast on Doni and has the advantage of the tow plus a faster car.
He has admitted his fault and recognised that he was attempting a pass that was just not possible at that point. However Doni did suffer and I feel that a penalty is in order.
Penalty avoidable rear end collision 1 place


Server replay time: 0

Lap 13 Ronnie is running the low line in his Merc through T1/T2 and is closing on Fran who is running a wider line. The speed of the Merc gains more ground approaching T3 but does not get an overlap. Ronnie has been just about invisible to Fran for 3 corners and he turns in for T3 unaware that Ronnie is poking his car into a vanishing gap. There is contact and Fran suffers because he is on the outside. The accident is made worse because C.Cendejas is shadowing Ronnie and gives him an extra punt.
I am calling this a Racing Incident, but with an advisory to all 3 drivers. Indianapolis is a special case and racing on ovals often involves cars in very close proximity for extended periods.
Fran might have been aware that a car was gaining on him and had moved into his blind spot. Maybe he could have played safe and taken a wider line?
Ronnie was aiming for a gap that might well get closed and had not achieved any overlap to claim the inside line.
C.Cendejas could se the action unfolding ahead and could have just lifted slightly to give himself a better chance of avoiding any contact.

1955 Grand Prix – Season 32 – Round 3– Indianapolis

A complete change of scene from Monaco to Indianapolis. From winding streets and tight corners on the edge of the Mediterranean, to The Brickyard in middle America!! Brakes should not be an issue here unless you are planning a stop in the pits. Slipstreaming will be the name of the game, but please be careful, the potential for a multi car incident cannot be underestimated.

Carefully read the rules on the championship standings page.
 
Unlimited Shift R are allowed but should be followed by Stop & Go’s in the pits within 2 laps.

Driver lists can be found on the championship standings page

Handicapping and chassis allocation.
This season the 1955 Grand Prix cars will be using a token system which allows drivers to purchase any chassis of their choice for a given number of tokens as published on the championship standings page. Drivers classed as Amateurs will be allocated an additional 10 tokens.  The token allocation will not be managed in SRou this season so (unlike the 67F1 Works and 67F1 Privateer divisions) the tokens available to each driver will not appear in the championship table (when the mouse pointer is hovered over the driver's total).  Rather, the available tokens will be published in the race announcement.  See below.

Available Tokens:
Note: These are the tokens available to each driver before the 10 tokens are added for making the race start

I would have thought that a 1:04 in training would be more likely and perhaps a 1:03 in the race or practice.

 Wink  Wishful thinking on my part guys to be sub 60 secs with a good tow, which is why 45 laps felt about right to be just under 50 mins for the race.

I'm very keen to see how much of a difference a tow makes here having not lapped with anyone else yet.

My main concern is my engine which is running stupidly hot, and keeping sliding on entry of T1 and T3 to a minimum as that's just slaying my right front tyre.

Still, I feel better about this than Monaco which was misery personified for me.

You could always run in 36fps mode and use the AI.

I found that Ascari in the Lancia is tough to beat.

Well we just had a good practice blast.  No idea how to get it down to the 1:03s though.  That's insane quick.
