Notes:
(1) It's best if all drivers can make sure they are connected before the Qualifying session as drivers on track during qualifying will not see cars that join after they are on track until they go back to the garage.
(2) Please make sure you are fully aware of the SimRacing.org.uk Rules.
(3) The AI control should be turned off so that you have control of the car at all times, including pitting. Your player file should therefore read
Autopit="0"
Force Autopit Off="1" // Forces autopit always off
No AI Control="1" // AI never has control over car
If you still finding pitting problematic, experience tells us that its less to do with positioning and more to do with approach speed. A slow approach to pit crew chief has proved most reliable.

Special Notes: Practice password is the usual race password for this race.

Bugger, I wasn't aware there is a small patch to increase the fuel capacity of the Fiat. So I ended up being the only one to make a pitstop. So me   Roll Eyes  Lips Sealed  Cry  Huh  Grin
Apart from that 'little' issue it was a very fun race.

Two very different race halves for me tonight.   2nd on grid, but Dan shot past into Eau Rouge on L1 and had Clive right up my chuff.  Later that lap, I lost the rear at Campus and spun.  Entire field was past before I could rejoin.  Clive waited, which puzzled me, as I didn't feel any contact between us.  Maybe he just wanted to harass me some more ?  Wink  Replay reveals it though - the sparks between our cars shows that it was in fact the cheeky git who spun me, so he did right in waiting  Smiley

Soon past Kurt's slower car, with Clive right on my tailpipes. Couldn't shake him, despite being quicker in qual, so suspected he had qualified on race fuel (which I didn't).  He had looks up the inside in several corners, but it'll be a cold day in Hell before I let myself be outbraked by Mr. Evil  Wink  After a few laps we had caught Dom & S_Cargo. I ran ever so slightly wide at Campus/Stavelot, and the evil one nipped past.  Re payed the favor a little over a lap later, when he went off line at the chicane.  Next Bob lost it at Eau Rouge. Quite a lottery trying to predict where his car would go, but we both made it past.  I then went not so slightly wide same place as before, letting Clive past again. Outbraked him - and myself at the chicane, so he dived under, reclaiming the place.  He clouted Dom at La Source however, and had to wait again, which regrettably ended our duel. 

Chased after S_Cargo and got past when he had a moment at Campus.  Initially worried at the rate he was gaining on the straights, but he soon dropped back, so assume he must have had more moments.  Geoffers was now 30 secs ahead and once again in a different Galaxy.  Earlier you could at least rely on him making the odd mistake, but he's completely stopped doing that, which is very bad news for anyone with ambitions for more than 2nd spot..  Smiley  2nd half then most lonely, in contrast to the first.   Grats to Geoffers on a most convincing win, and to S_Cargo for completing the podium.

Apologies for taking the fastest car, if I hadn't been in with a chance of winning the championship (jointly), I would have taken a slower one. So apart from winning it was a fairly lonely race, even resisted the usual temptation of trying to lap faster & faster.

Congrats to Erling & S.Cargo  clap clap & Kurt for winning his class  clap & well done to the rest, everyone managed to make it to the finish.  clap thumbup2

And bad luck Dom, seems Tony hadn't included the fuel capacity fix in the race post.  oops

Apologies to Dom for not including details of the fuel fix, my bad.

Results will be done on Saturday as my laptop -v- P&O boat Internet do not appear to want to know each other  cursing

Hope everyone had a good couple of races

See you all on Wednesday for the AT Cup.

Cheers

Grats to Ziu, Geoffers and Erling on their championship wins. I did take a quick look at the points table before last night's race and was stunned to see where I was in the fast cars  Shocked. But then reality kicked in when I looked at what cars I had left and more importantly what cars other members might use....... Erling already had the Group B table sewn up, so he was sure to take the Pirin in Group A and Geoffers was spoilt for choice, so he was likely to take a Group A too  Undecided
Maybe I could stick my nose into that little battle for the Group A silverware, but it was a big ask against the likes of Geoffers ( who would have the faster car ) and professor Erling and his clinical racing.

Erling guessed right about quali on race fuel. Something that I do 90% of the time so that I know where I am on race pace. If everyone else qualifies on race fuel I have a good indication of my relative speed, if they have gone light on fuel then things can only get better for me?? At least that is what I tell myself  Wink
So, Arnold worked out the race strategy. "In the early laps stay as close as you can to Erling, coz that Geoffers guy is at least 2 secs a lap faster and trying to stay with him is gonna end in grass cutting or worse!".
 All that meticulous planning went out of the window in the first 300mtrs! Dan had obviously not read the script and used the illegal KERS system on his car to fire himself into 2nd place before Eau Rouge!!!
Got myself onto Erlings tail and attached a length of Mabel's knicker elastic to his rear bumper " that should ensure that the little bu**er does not get away from me!"
I guessed that Erling had indeed Q'd on low fuel because there were parts of the track where my car felt quicker and I was able to stay with him and , in places, take a sneaky look for a pass.
S. Cargo had got himself onto the back of the tussle for 2nd with Dan and Erling was dragging us into a 4 car dice......sitting at the back of this group I was hoping for an "opportunity"  Roll Eyes Approaching Campus it seemed that Erling was slowed by the car in front and the catapultg effect from the elastic tow rope fired me down the outside of the right hander so that by the time we were taking the left hand element, I was almost alongside Erling's car.
When he turned in I knew that he would not expect me to be there , heck!! I had not expected to be there!!!. So I moved as far onto the grass as I dared and hoped that the two wheels still running on kerb and tarmac might keep me pointing in the right direction. But your honour, the miniscule abrasion with what I can only assume was a protruding door handle on Erling's car, combined with the gravitational alignment with Jupiter and the Sun caused him to veer uncontrollably off the track. Even Mabel's knicker elastic was not strong enough to arrest his trajectory, such was the gravitational pull.
I was so moved by this most unfortunate galactic anomaly that I stopped to offer my assistance.
Imagine my great relief and joy when he emerged unscathed from the undergrowth to rejoin the action.  Undecided
I was so devastated that he had suffered such a setback that I felt it was my duty to urge him back up through the field, so where I felt that he was not maximising his speed I offered my physical presence against his rear end to reduce his laptimes. When that failed I passed him and offered him the benefit of my slipstream, because I am such a gentleman  winkiss

So keen was I that Erling should recover any lost ground, that my exuberance overcame me and I was surprised when Dominick slowed down for La Source. This is a corner which Arnold maintains is taken flat in 3rd.......no!! honestly that is what he says. He has never driven a car around Spa, but he claims that he knows stuff. blink

Erling would now have to look after himself as once again I waited to offer my assistance to a fellow traveller.....I am just such a gentleman m'lud.

Once I had followed him for a lap and  I was sure that Mr Dominick was OK I decided to get to the end of the race as smartly as possible and enjoy a cup of tea with Geoffers, who had kindly offered to provide tea and biscuits as he was likely to be the first back to the clubhouse. Quite why Mabel could not be arsed to make the tea is a good question, but have you tasted her tea???

Great fun guys. Like most of these series I only get used to the cars and find some good pace after the halfway point in the season. Maybe I need to practice more???

As usual I'm quite late in replying here...
First of all it's as pleasant to read your prose as to race with you guys.

I had full choice of car as I did not take part in many races before.
Initially I planned to use the Pirin Fiat (as I had a setup from the previous race) until I discovered that the tank was too small and I would need a pit-stop (one more opportunity to mess-up). Just like Dom I had no idea that there was a patch for the tank capacity, and I was surprised to see so many people use it.  Huh
Took the Abarth TCR (which is a handful for me) and could make the podium just because it was the fastest car... and because the damage system doesn't seem to work (GTL feature or car feature ?): my first contact with the guard rail (at Campus) should have killed both the car and myself.  Shocked
The final part of the race was a bit lonely but before that it was not so easy. I could see someone (Clive?) 1 or 2 sec away on my back for many laps and again without the power of the car I would not have been able to keep my position for long.  sweatdrop

In a few words: a pleasant evening!  Smiley

Thanks to all and congratulations to the podium and the championship winners.
