Grid/server capacity: 22

Practice: ~19:20 (60 mins) Please do not set a time in practice. This affects the "randomness" of random qualy. If you do set a time please leave and rejoin practice before the practice session ends, and wait in your pit.
Qualifying: Random qualy
Race: 20:20 (29 laps)

Cars allowed: BMW CSL Turbo (Car#'s 1, 21 & 41 only) Download this, Ford Capri Mk3 Turbo (Div 1, '79 only) Download this, Porsche 935 Turbo Download this

IMPORTANT

Just spotted a bad line in one of the track files  Angry

Please download this http://www.mediafire.com/file/q4xczz1pvp4au3x/79InterlagosGPC.gdb/file and put it in the GameData/Locations/ Interlagos79 folder, allowing to overwrite.

Time of Day Setting: 14:00

Tyre wear: Normal
Fuel consumption: Normal
Pit stops: Required

Server: simracing.org.uk Wednesday

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 time.

This used to be the annual Lawrence Clemo memorial race but I've widened the scope to include others, who in their own way were important to the sim-racing community and GTL in particular. Last year we lost modders Deep-Strike (Carsten, 54) and Hmmguy (Phil, 58). RIP.

In my first test's in appears that..........

The Porsche is fastest but eats it's tyres.

The BMW and Ford are equal on times but..............the BMW will blow it's engine if over revved.

The Ford is the easier to drive IMO.

Getting nearer to the Porsche with the BMW now but tyre wear is going up. BMW engine health is improved with a lower rev limit.

Ford continues to lag behind improve  Wink.

Currently I am hoping to be involved in this race and might even occupy some time by trying out the cars, which will be a change from the normal preparations.
But, I have just been advised that I urgently require a heart pacemaker to be fitted and that is likely to be next Wed/Thur. Still awaiting the confirmation letter through the post as to exact time and date. So until then I have to stay in total isolation, except for one trip to the local hospital car park for a Covid-19 swab test, where I get a cotton bud stuffed down my throat whilst still sitting in the car....can't wait for that bubble of excitement!! Undecided
After the op I am informed that I must not raise my left arm higher than my shoulder for 6 weeks, so that means I cannot make extravagant gesticulations at any other cars during races. or throw my arms in the air when centrifugal force exceeds my ability to control it  Huh.  So, that's GTL fun ruined for 6 weeks  blink

BTW I shall be requesting that the pacemaker that I get is fitted with a turbo button, so that I can boost my lap times in the future  Wink I can't see why that wouldn't work??  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Keep us informed Clive and I hope all goes well and you have a speedy return to us all.

In the States the swab goes up the nose, enjoy.

Hey Clive;
My uncle had a pacemaker installed, this was maybe 12/15 years ago and he had it installed one day and went home the next.  I went by his place a couple of days later and he was out raking leaves like nothing happened.  He lived to be 92 or 93 yo and was just as grumpy right till the end.  Little tip, he died putting on his socks, so beware when you get that age!!!!!!

Be thinking of you

Thanks guys for your kind thoughts.
I trust that you will all feel sorry for me in future races, and allow me to win everything for the rest of the year  Grin

Thanks to Bob for the permission to be grumpy for another 25 years   Wink

I was only faster than Fulvio because I shut my eyes at each braking point and hoped that the car would stop. 95% of the time it did  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

FWIW
I have just done 5 laps in each car

I find the Porsche the slowest and a horrible thing to drive. The turbo comes in like a sledge hammer on that 4 speed gearbox and throws the balance of the car completely. But maybe I have a wrong setup/driving style/ability? probably all 3!!! Might go back and try again having read Tony's assessment.

The Ford is so much smoother on the power delivery, and consequently I find it very driveable and quicker than the Porker by 4 secs.

The BMW is quickest for me and I did not change the default rev limit. I saw no reduction in the health % in 4 flying laps on full tanks. If I make the race next week and opt for the Beemer I will have to tweak the setup as it is a little twitchy when provoked and not quite so stable as the Ford...but so far the quickest by a couple of secs.

I gave the Porker another go last night, starting from the default setup and working sort of logically to correct the glitches. Even though I am not sure if I will be taking part in the race, I can enjoy testing the cars  Smiley

Improved on my earlier porker time by about 2.5 secs, but I found it hard work to extract the extra time.
The most productive thing that I did was close up the ratios in the gearbox, making 4th gear just long enough to reach the end of the straight as the red light came on, and then working back down the box to keep the engine spinning in the power band. I also found understeer on turn in an issue, but also snap oversteer on corner exit. That took some creative thinking around settings and a slight change of approach in the driving style. The rear tyre wear was more noticeable on this car even after 5 laps, but maybe a lighter/smoother touch with the right foot would make them last for the whole race ??

Posted a time just under 2:50, but I suspect that the uber aliens, and Porsche lovers, will take 5 secs off that time.
