Aintree is undoubtedly famous for the iconic Grand National horse race but for several years it reverberated to the sound of horses of a different kind. The circuit was built in 1954 and hosted the Formula One British Grand Prix five times, in 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961 and 1962. Stirling Moss, driving a Mercedes, won his first British Grand Prix at Aintree in 1955.  It was the first time a British driver had won his home Grand Prix. The first British driver / British car victory in a British Grand Prix was also at Aintree in 1957, when Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks shared a Vanwall. Quite why Grand Prix racing stopped at Aintree is unclear.  The close proximity of housing may have been a factor but the circuit would no doubt have needed to improve safety standards.  The original track can still be seen, and driven on, today. The lack of any run-off areas in the section to the west of the Melling Road all too apparent. The section to the east of the Melling Road which is wide open and relatively safe is still in regular use for motorcycle racing.

The full time drivers can start to practice as soon as the server is available.  Reserve drivers can also join as soon as the server becomes available but must leave the server with 35 minutes of qualifying left, for a total of 5 minutes; this will allow any remaining full timers to join.  If there is enough space on the grid, the reserve drivers will be able to rejoin when there are 30 mins of qualifying left.  

This Season we don't have a Red Zone. Moderating will be on reported incidents only. If you haven't received a PM about an incident before the link below the results table is removed, you can be sure that you will not appear in the moderator's report.

The chassis token system is explained on the 55's standings page. Please ensure you choose a chassis that is within your budget, see the table below.

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

Everyone knows that million-to-one chances happen 9 times out of 10. Why the hell do I keep crashing then?!

Well this is just horrible for melting the brakes.  Worse than Monaco.  I'm taking the Connaught out and even it's meager power is tough to get stopped.  My best lap time is enough to beat the actual Connaughts that qualified for the 1955 event . . . I don't think that's much to write home about though.

You are correct that the brakes need special management here Alex.

Also, you have to hope that the bloke behind has managed his too or you are probably going to be shunted!

I also find it a challenge to keep the engine in one piece!

You must be driving a Gordini tonight then Clive Wink
That's the only car I've found to be especially fragile, you must keep it out of the red!.

And I agree, Aintree is a bugger on brakes. The speed advantage to cars with better brakes is huge (I wouldn't put the Connaught in that group by the way Alex).
In the fun race here I was able to take pole fairly comfortably from Tris in his Lancia, but couldn't live with him in the race in my Ferrari as he had much better brake performance than me.
I went back after the race and did a trial,  my fastest lap in a Lancia was slightly quicker at qualifying speeds, at race pace I was almost a second a lap up in the D50  Shocked

Don't forget the Monza fun race at 8.30 tonight
 We would like a good turnout to test connectivity on UKGPL9. As a special  treat you can drive something with functional brakes.

A little early for me I'm afraid, I won't be in until closer to 9.

Nevertheless the Connaught it shall be!  It's part of my grand unifying plan to be able to crash at the highest possible speed at Monza.

Nope.

Been detonating Vanwalls.  But I have given it longer legs since then.

I'm going to try and make this, I've got a horrible case of lurgy though so it's anyones guess if I'll finish!
I'll probably miss the test race as a result, I doubt I'll be able to concentrate for both

I'm taking the Vanwall here, I love the sound and it goes OK but I've yet to blow an engine, even with some generous use of engine braking, rather than engine breaking.

Kept it together, it was me that fell apart.

Kept the revs below 7,000 in top and all was well.

Grats to Tim, Sam and Will.

Two daft early spins cost me dear.  But if it were easy I wouldn't be interested.  ;-)

Came together with Axel at the start and had to s/r.
Bad start, difficult track and Gordini...hoped for more.
Too many spins and an engine blower...couldn't get worse.

OK, so my blood pressure has returned to ( almost) normal levels and my post here will not contain so many expletives that I get banned from the forum for life!  Undecided

Last lap and closing on Tim after about 15 laps of sustained pushing and 10/10ths driving. Got to the level crossing at T2 with Tim clearly in sight, there might be an opportunity for a lunge at the end of the lap?? to take the win. Maybe, maybe not.

Win 10 decided NOT!!! and dumped me to BSOD!!! censored taz taz taz taz censored censored censored

It is bad enough when it happens during the first few laps, but to have survived 95% of the race and had a tremendous fight with Tim, being dumped like that is hard to take  Angry

More investigations on the web this a.m. suggests that it might be Nvidia drivers?? or the Logitech driver, although I felt that I had explored that avenue already??

Grats to Tim who was very quick in his Fezza and took full advantage of my brain fade ( combined with brake fade ) at around lap 10 to escape my attentions.
Once I got my head back together and remembered how this car/setup should be driven I started to close the gap (with the help of a few backmarkers  Roll Eyes ). The last lap could have been epic as I was finding that the car was getting quicker and quicker...or maybe that was me?

Grats to all those who finished, see y'all next time.

If not for braking, corners & other traffic I might be quite good with the 55s. Unfortunately Aintree had lots of these complicating factors. The odd lap of 2.07 demonstrated what was possible & I quite liked the little Vanwall. Even managed not to break it.
