Car restrictions: Three drives maximum per make. Check your car allowance here

Time of Day Setting: 14:00
Start: STANDING
Tyre wear: Normal
Fuel consumption: Normal
Pit stops: Not required

Server: simracing.org.uk Wednesday
Password: see above

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: Note early race start.

IMPORTANT

As we have a 60's and a 70's version of Road America, we shall use them both for these events.

Download link for the non-60's version can be found in the race announcement here https://www.simracing.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=15273.msg278259#msg278259

My G27 has packed up, so splashed out on a Thrustmaster TX. So far so good, works well in R3E and AC
but in GTL I have to set the lock to max (35) to be able to get out of the pits, and still it needs a lot of
twirling to get round corners. I usually have a very low lock to get quick response. I can just about drive
it as it is, but would like to not have to spin the wheel so much. ANyone else using Thrustmaster?

I don't know if this could help you, but in Windows seek out an app called Game Controllers. This should have a settings section where you can adjust wheel rotation. It may need some playing around with but it may provide the solution your seeking?
However it may affect the wheels rotation in your other sims too  Undecided

That's really good, thanks Tony. It doesn't just set the calibration, it sets the mechanical limts.
I can get a good compromise now.  thumbup1

I'm on Thrustmaster too Matt.  Looks like you've got it sorted.  If not, take a look at the wheel settings in its control panel.  Got this myself, where rotation can be set:

Yep, Thanks Erling and Tony, I set it to around 500 and it is a decent compromise for R3E/AC/GTL
I will likely tweek it some more. I raced last night with it on Stephen's R3E race, and it didn't fit the table I was on
and kept coming loose.

Back at my house for this week's races, and this table is longer, so I can give it a proper test.

Coming from a G27 myself, the clamping system of the Thrustmaster was driving me bonkers.  No matter how tight I made it, I would yank it away from the table during races and kept having to slam it back into place.  Finally solved it by attaching a slender piece of wood on the underside of the table, which the 'feet' of the clamp rests against and can't get past.

Please remember that tonight's event features two different tracks. Make sure you have both downloaded and installed.

Thank you

So far here, the wheel is staying put, but the pedals are gradually sliding away!
The g27 had a nice gripper you could dig into the carpet with. I may need some nails into the
floor to keep the codding thing  ::)in place

So far not particularly impressed by this TM wheel. It's a good wheel and pedals
but it doesn't seem particularly better in any respect than the G27, and not as good in some.
It smells of hot electronics even when not doing anything. That prog reduces the range nicely
but I find I am just making like a G27. It has loads of buttons and hat switches, which might be
nice for Xbox, but I only use two buttons for looking left and right, so most of it is a waste for me.
And it's twice the price of a G29....

I actually had that problem with my G27 even with the gripper. After many trials and tribulations I came up with a very redneck, but totally non-invasive solution: I simply placed a sturdy cardboard box -actually one from my monitors- which had the right size, between the wall and the pedals. Never had an issue since.

Couldn't devote time to try all the cars and (re)learn two tracks, so just picked two cars I hadn't used yet.

Generally I'm quite inept in US heavy metal, which was highlighted in race 1 - Clive getting the same car round two full seconds quicker has me scratching my head... blink

Qualified 4th, behind Kurt, but got better off the line and slipped into 3rd before T1.  Up front, Geoffers & Clive were in a class of their own and soon disappeared. Behind me, Kurt was replaced by Dom, who inched closer over the following laps.  Then the sound behind me changed, announcing that a new player had arrived. It was Matt, in a monstrosity of a car  Shocked   Much quicker in a straight line, so he just powered past on the main straight.  Couple laps later, I inadvertently let Dom through, when I went wide.  The two gents stayed tantalizingly close up ahead, nurturing the thought that it should have been possible to keep them behind.  Then fate started tossing curve balls it seemed.  First Dom got a tank slapper, veering off track and apparently damaging the car enough for retirement.   I chased after Matt, getting closer towards the end. Not my stellar driving it seems, but rather that he was running out of fuel, only just making it to the final turn on the final lap.  Very cruel indeed.   Thus I finished a not quite deserved 3rd.  Grats to Geoffers & Clive, commiserations to Matt & Dom.

Liked driving the AMC for race 2, but still chocked to find myself quite close to Geoffers, with a clear gap to the rest of the field - that's not natural  Shocked
Over the first half, the gaps to Geoffers in front & Clive behind slowly stretched.  Just as I was pondering the fact that Geoffers seemed unperturbed by the tyre wear that was starting to slow me down, a dust plume up ahead announced he had gone off.  Thus I was gifted the lead. Pit board showed a gap of 6.6 secs, and I was very worried about what it would show a lap later - how fast would it drop ?  Could I hold on to the finish ?   Gap had increased however, to 11 secs, and continued to grow over the following laps, so I could slow a little and not risk doing something stupid.  Didn't know at the time that it had taken Geoffers so long to get out of the gravel, dropping him all the way to 5th.  One heck of a recovery drive, to still finish 2nd!!  Shocked
Grats to Geoffers & Matt - along with commiserations to the former; a very small mistake that proved very costly indeed.
