Season 33 Extra – Round 3 –  Road America

Season 33 Extra will be an unofficial championship of 8 races over the next few weeks using the original 1967 mod. Round 3 will be at Road America which most recently feature as a 67 race in Season 32 .

No registration required & the series is open to all comers.

This will be run as mixed grid. There is a free choice of chassis, although Pro drivers should not take the Lotus or the Eagle. Points will be scored according to the traditional method of 9 for 1st, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd, 3 for 4th, 2 for 5th & 1 for 6th.

Have fun, but please observe GPL rules & driving standards.

Server = UKGPL8
IP = see IGOR
Race date = Sunday 28-10-2018
Time = 21:00 UK time (21:00 GMT)

There is no Red Zone. Moderating will be on reported incidents only. Remember that lap 1 incidents carry an additional penalty place.

All drivers are permitted unlimited Shift R’s, but each reset must be followed by a Stop & Go in the pit lane within 2 laps. Failure to take a Stop & Go will result in a Disqualification. If you require a Stop & Go on the final lap & are unable to complete a time penalty of 15 secs is added.

Well that was more than annoying. Felt really good about this one and qualified on Pole. Led for the 1st few laps until a stupid mistake at Canada Corner spun me around and Clive and Cookie went through. Set off after them and was looking forwards to a good battle then my Router decided to reboot itself for some unknown reason.  censored censored censored thumbdown Pissed off doesn't even begin to describe it.

 Grats to Jonny and Axel for the top podium spots.
I had done a few practice laps for this race and opted for the Brabham as something entirely different from my usual Honda. It took a while to adapt the setup and driving to get the best from the car. It must be me, and my driving, but it seems that whatever car I drive I cannot get front tyres warm on any car, at any track  Undecided. During last night's race I knew that it took at least 2 laps to get any heat into the rear tyres so I was happy to follow John. He was obviously happier to push hard much earlier than I was, and pulled a small gap until I began to turn the wick up.
 Then I came across a stranded John and found myself in the lead, with Axel not too far behind and pushing quite hard. I found that I could maintain a gap that prevented Axel making a passing attempt. We were pretty evenly matched on pace for many laps until I suspect that he had a moment and i found myself with a very comfortable lead.
Maybe the problem might have been that I was no longer having to really concentrate....so I didn't and missed my braking point for T2. Ran so wide that I ripped a wheel off!! Axel and Jonny went past and a S/R followed by a SnG and a car with full tanks and cold tyres removed any chance of getting any places back.
Throughout the whole race, even when I was racing hard with Axel the front tyres stayed absolutely cold. So I do wonder how some of you manage to get your front tyres to overheat??  Huh

At least you have something else to blame for your problems John, all I have is my own failure to concentrate when I had a comfortable lead and what looked like an easy run to the flag. But it was still good fun.  Wink

Congrats Jonny, Axel, and Clive! I wish I had been up to the task of racing with you all. It's a shame John had technical problems. It's weird to say this. I hoped you had wrecked. lol

This one was a good example of what happens to me if I don't practice. That's one of the things that limits my racing. I'm not a safe driver if I don't practice. I wish I had practiced. I'd like to have seen what I might get out of the Brabham on this track. I had a chance to do that until I slid across the sticks inside T1. So INT damage removes wheels when sliding sideways across those stick just like Pro damage. I was actually a little shocked when I saw the wheel go flying.

All drivers are permitted unlimited Shift R’s, but each reset must be followed by a Stop & Go in the pit lane within 2 laps.

Thanks! I forgot to pit on the lap of my reset. I remembered just after I passed the beginning of the pit wall. I did remember to do it on the next lap. Smiley

Throughout the whole race, even when I was racing hard with Axel the front tyres stayed absolutely cold. So I do wonder how some of you manage to get your front tyres to overheat??  Huh

My front tires were cool too Clive. I see that a lot. It was very strange that my LF tire stayed dark blue in Prib throughout the race. The RF was often in the light blue color. I would have expected the LF to be warmer thinking it would be under more stress than the RF.

In the past I'd run 8:04s at Nurburgring and I'd rarely see any of the tires change color in Pribluda. The fronts always stayed in the dark blue. Once I started breaking 8:00, I did begin to see higher tire temps but the fronts would still stay somewhat cool.

It's rare for me to have high temperature problems with the front tires. I see it some at ovals and I think there a few road courses that heat my front tires well but most of the time they're cooler than I'd like. Kyalami in the BRM is the only one I can remember at the moment that I have to be careful about overheating the front tires. I'm often using more front brake bias than I have to. When the rear tires are at a good temperature and the fronts are cool, the last thing I want to do is use more rear brake bias even if I can handle it.

I've been doing something else I would consider weird. I'm often using a slightly higher spring rate on the front to get more heat in the front tires. Considering most of the weight is on the rear, I'd expect to need higher spring rates there. I don't worry about it anymore. I set the pressure at 24 psi after several laps of use and ignore the low temperatures. But I still try to find ways to get the front and rear tires near the same temperature.

Take care guys.
