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: A long track so please use this https://www.simracing.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=12160.0. Cuts will be off for this event. Note early race start time. You will need the in-game start countdown to be turned on.

Tony, Installed the car pack but I'm unable to access the cars.  Huh I checked in GameData/Teams/LM_Classics and all the cars are there. How to I get into these cars please, am I missing something?

Also my Xd is not working, I seem to remember there's a Zip file that is un-Zipped into GTL. Advice please.

Someone didn't read the Car pack install instruction did they  Roll Eyes

That's ok as I forgot about this as well. Look here for specific instructions regarding the car pack install.

Get XD here http://www.vitumo.de/ and drop the downloaded files in to your GTL main folder.

Well I guess it was only a matter of time before Targa appeared on a race schedule. I have to admit I've never completed a lap here, anyone want to buy a very 2nd hand Porsche?

After several attempts in the past week I think I know more about the surrounding Sicilian countryside than the track itself.

I guess I should say thanks for putting this on the schedule Tony. But for now I'll just continue taking your name in vain every time I take an excursion through the shrubbery.

Probably pretty academic in my case but can we have cuts off for this one?

Am I alone in thinking that Tony has a dark side to his personality....Targa + night = pain and suffering  UndecidedHuh

We have had Targa in GPL for a few years and I have to confess that I have never taken the time to try and learn this mammoth challenge. But there are some who have, and they are posting some ridiculous times. Perhaps I'll bring in a ringer for this one? Roll Eyes

It's not reflected in the race description - cruel joke or missing update ?  Wink

(Can't believe Tony's actually arranged a race here; believe I jokingly suggested it in the past, but never thought he would be mad enough..  Shocked)

Just kidding Erling. I have tested a night race here and it's fun up to a point. However at various parts of the circuit there a large areas where the graphics suffer due to flicker etc.

IMPORTANT

I have decided to change the track version from Regular to Historical. This provides a 10sec approx staggered start. So you may start out in the Sicilian countryside with no other cars in site and no start lights. You will need to have the in-game countdown turned on.

How will this work result-wise Tony - is it still a regular race, or more like a rally stage, with individual timing ?    Would be a bit of a bummer to have to start over a minute after the first car, if it's still a normal race where the winner is the first finisher (assuming anyone makes it to the finish..  Wink)

We had some hillclimbs over at NG last year which were run as a time-trial in 'Qualifying' mode:
