Season 34 – 1955 Grand Prix – Round 4 – Hockenheim

The fourth race in the 1955 Grand Prix series takes us to Hockenheim in Germany. The track was originally called "Dreieckskurs" (triangle course) and was built in 1932 using roads in the forest as an alternative to the Wildpark-Circuit in Karlsruhe. The track was used for motorcycle racing and was expanded to be used as test track for Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union in 1936. In 1938 the track was drastically shortened to 7.5 kilometres and it was renamed the "Kurpfalzring". This name was used until 1947 when the unchanged layout was renamed again to "Hockenheimring". This version of the circuit, which was used in 1955, consisted of the original two long straights, with the Ostkurve in the forest and the original hairpin inside Hockenheim joining them together. In 1965, when the new Autobahn A 6 separated the village from the main part of the track, an updated version of Hockenheim circuit was built, which incorporated a new "Motodrom" stadium section. Two fast chicanes were added after Jim Clark was killed on 7 April 1968 in a Formula 2 racing accident.  A small memorial was placed at the site of his accident near the first chicane. In order to improve safety even further, the track was lined with crash barriers in 1970. But the track was still dangerous and claimed the life of Patrick Depailler in 1980. So in 1982, the first chicane was made slower and a third chicane was added at the Ostkurve (east curve). In the early 2000s, Formula 1 officials demanded the 6.823 km (4.240 mi) track be shortened and threatened to discontinue racing there.  So the state government of Baden-Württemberg secured the financing for a redesign by Hermann Tilke ready for the 2002 German Grand Prix. The new "Tilke Track" was not universally popular and many drivers preferred the long circuit. Sadly the old circuit was torn up and replanted with trees thereby preventing any chance of reinstating the long circuit for Formula 1 or indeed using it for historic car races.

Tonight we will be using the 1967 version of the long track that doesn't have the three chicanes.

Handicapping and chassis allocation.
This season the 1955 Grand Prix cars will again be using a token system which allows drivers to purchase any chassis of their choice for a given number of tokens as published on the championship standings page. Drivers classed as Amateurs will be allocated an additional 10 tokens.  The token allocation will not be managed in SRou this season so (unlike the 67F1 Works and 67F1 Privateer divisions) the tokens available to each driver will not appear in the championship table (when the mouse pointer is hovered over the driver's total).  Rather, the available tokens will be published in the race announcement. See table below.

Available Tokens:
Note: These are the tokens available to each driver before the 10 tokens are added for making the race start.

I have problem with CTD in this track... often when I leave the session and return into the setup screen, tried with Lancia, Mercedes and Maserati
two times happened during a lap, maybe it's happened when the volume change quikly for example during a rapid acceleration in first/second gears and when to leave session and starts the automatic replay
Someone other with this problem?

(cause no time I have no tried in other tracks)

I did a few trial laps today and yup! 3 CDT's. Not a problem that I have had with other mods at this circuit.  Undecided

I did try a new d/load of the track, but still got a CDT. Ginetto has a fix for the Sports Car mod and I am wondering if we will need that fix to make the track work with the 55's??

Yes this GinFix is also good for other mods, as it does make right viewing distances on the track.

I haven't had any issues with this track since I installed it last season for a 67 race.

In my track folder I have a zip file called ctd_fix_extra_mips_3do

I have no idea where this came from or if it has been unpacked!

It isn't in the image of Axel's folder that I used to make my server work.

CTD is more than likely associated with graphics settings on the client and nothing to do with the server. However the race server (UKGPL_4) is up for testing on IGOR please test your connections.

I was expecting this to be like Spa, where you hardly notice that it's the 55mod, but I have found that there is a surprising amount of brake management required.   thumbup1

Great to do some laps with you. Hot lapping is OK for developing setups but nothing beats practising with other drivers to develop race craft. Getting used to driving in close proximity is essential with the slipstream and brakes in this mod.

Arrrgggghhh  CTD with 4 laps to go Huh.  Never mind, at least I will get some points because I completed 50% race distance. The little Connaught was struggling without a tow. I spun out at Sachs Curve 3 times!! Just trying to get the power down too early in an effort to keep up with the faster cars. Grats to Clive for the pole, looks like Bastian managed to connect and was doing very well with 4 laps to go.

SORRY evil, i migth have overrated the cornering speed for your car.
With the mercedes it is easy going 120 km/h, i expected you to coast into that corner.
feels really bad to have retired you Sad

Thanks Phil.

The first few laps were manic with cars everywhere!  And not all of them were rubber side down!  Hope Lewis has more luck defending his crown than Evil has had in this series.

I shall need to watch the replay before I make any other comment on the race but congratulations to Fulvio on heading the championship table.

LOL  I was very relieved when his silver aircraft carrier was no longer parked in front of me in the corners.  They are a bit of a beast when it comes to corners and not ramming them is a difficult task.


And congratulations to Fran for taking the Amateur honours for SBRC.  


And Tago for top Gordini!
