Moderator's Report

Heartbreak for Axel Cookie, leading the race on the last lap of the circuit only for the Lotus' engine to let him down. The reset and subsequent 15 second penalty has promoted Bastian Grupp to the win. Axel finished in second spot while Dave Curtis rounds the podium.

No incident reports this round which marks the end of the season. Congratulations to John Hammonds for winning this season's Privateers Trophy!


Server replay time: 0

Axel takes a shift-r on the last lap, hence a 15 second penalty has been applied.

Season 32 Privateers Trophy – Round 10 - Balcarce

For the final round of the Privateers Trophy, across the Atlantic towards Latin America, Argentina.

Autódromo Juan Manuel Fangio is a motorsports circuit located near Balcarce, Argentina. It has hosted events in the Turismo Carretera series. The 2011 race saw tragedy as young Argentinian Guido Falaschi was fatally injured in a multi-car crash.

The track was named after Argentinian racing legend, Juan Manuel Fangio, who was born in Balcarce.

There is a track upgrade available at SRMZ that should be used. This is on the same page as the track download link.

Note the Privateers division is run on Intermediate damage settings. Drivers are permitted 1 Shift R followed by a Stop & Go in the pit lane within 2 laps. Failure to make a stop will result in a 30 second time penalty. If you require a stop & go on the final lap & are unable to complete a time penalty of 15 secs is added.

Shame there were not more runners,  but I guess most of the final series positions had already been decided.

I had been lying down in a darkened room just beforehand, hoping the painkillers would kick-in to help with my headache;  however - apparently what I really needed was to just get out on track!  Particularly with the knowledge that the surrounding positions would not change & to just enjoy it as much as possible without pressure  (apart from the usual don't take out team-mates out of course...)

I certainly lucked into a better final position here a couple of years back,  but this was about as good as I could realistically expect;  podiums rare with this bunch!

Anyway,  congrats to the chaps ahead; then just romped away with it.

Don't know what happened to John  (he's the one that somewhat assisted me with some online testing before the last privs event here);  but although it's not entirely sporting to say so - was relieved to see that prib suggested he was probably being kept busy elsewhere.

Likewise, in the early stages at least;  Phil certainly had the measure of me.   Although I could maybe close a bit during the lap, he was just haulin' ass up the hill & away.  I consider I inherited that position due to an issue at T1.

Where as I managed to get my off-tracking complete T1/L1  (maybe that's what I get for taking a couple of psi out front-left before the off; as I noticed I'd been getting that into the red after a few laps in practice...).  But overall, maybe it helped with consistency after a few laps had passed.

Well, not the glorious end to the season I was hoping for...

Qualified amazingly in 2nd but a good way behind Cookie's time and just ahead of Bastian in his Eagle. Got away well but Cookie was slowly getting away and Bastian was making his intentions very clear behind. I made the rookie mistake of revising my setup just before the event and meant to transfer the chassis settings across to my race set up leaving the gears as they were but due to a monumental mix up ended up with the "Qualifying" gearing for the race as well. 1st & 2nd particularly was way too low and I over revved the engine every time I needed the gear. Sure enough after a few laps the engine cried enough requiring a shift-r. Then to add insult to injury I completely cocked up my plans for the S&G and despite creeping around the last few 100 yds still managed to miss the pit entrance so had to go around again. Eventually having got that sorted I rejoined the race but was well adrift of the rest of the field and Cookie was already flashing in red on my Prib occasionally.

From then on it was simply damage limitation with the number 1 priority being to try not to get lapped by the leaders. Caught Jack in his BRM who let me through a lot easier then perhaps he should have considering we were racing at that point and set off after Dave R who was about 0.5ml up the road, Slowly reeled him in and finally got past only to mess up T1 and slither into the kitty litter, I'm sure I heard him laughing to himself as has went back through. So with it all to do again I caught him finally into the hairpin onto the S/F straight and this time managed to make it stick, Passed Jack for a 2nd time a little later but there was nothing I could do about Phil who was a further 15 seconds up the road so I concentrated on not blowing my engine up for the 2nd time while watching Cookies progress behind in case I needed to get out of his way in a hurry but fortunately the flag settled that one.

As Dave C mentioned it's a shame the turnout was so low for this one. Sad

A big thank you to everyone who looked after the servers, scoring, moderation etc. I've really enjoyed this season. It's a shame I can't be as lucky with my lottery numbers.

TTFN
John.

Wow, unexpected.

considerations to john (engine in lap3 or so) and Axel.
I noticed the gap melting to 13 seconds in the last lap and thougt you went off.
But i guess you will have a time penalty for your stop n go you couldn't take anymore, or why should i win this.

i, for myself hoped for a mistake-free race until 10 laps to go, when i spun off twice in T1. losing around 26 second in total.

My season 32 petered out with a whimper - scuppered by the scourge of Microsoft. The was s large windows update with messages about how my on-line experience was being improved. Surprisingly everything on GPL seemed to being functioning until the start grid when I discovered my clutch had been disconnected when I jump started. I returned to the pit to serve s penalty but forgot GPL disconnects if you stay still too long. To be honest I rather struggle for pace at this track.
Not great season, but enjoyed the racing ad always.
Congratulations to John on a solid championship drive & to the Dave's, who scored rather more team championship points than me.
