Season 36 – 1955 Grand Prix – Round 6 – Grenzlandring

The sixth race in the 1955 Grand Prix series sees us back in Europe at Grenzlandring, a track around the town of Wegberg in Germany.  The first race was held on 19th September 1948 in front of about 250,000 spectators. It was organised by silk weaving mill owner and keen racing driver Emil "Teddy" Vorster (Rheydt) and his Rheydter Club für Motorsport (RCM). From 1949 onwards, the organisation was in the hands of the Motorsport-Union-Grenzlandring, a co-operation of four motorsport clubs of the Lower Rhine region. The all-time lap record was set in September 1949 by Bavarian Georg "Schorsch" Meier on a supercharged BMW 500 motorbike at 216 km/h (134 mph) (clockwise driven) and in September 1951 Toni Ulmen set the all-time record for cars, driving his Veritas 2000 RS to 212 km/h (132 mph) (anti-clockwise). No doubt genuine Grand Prix cars would have been a lot quicker. Racing came to an end after 31 August 1952, when Helmut Niedermayr from Berlin crashed his Formula Two Reif/Veritas-Meteor at the exit of the Roermonder Kurve at nearly 200 km/h (120 mph) killing at least 13 spectators.

FWIW...This is a track that I just do not like, don't know why, as it ain't difficult....just turn left, a little more, or a little less !!??
Oh!, and make sure you stay in someone's slipstream until the last lap......hmmmmm? maybe I will let Mr Loynes take the lead on this one  Roll Eyes whistling whistling

Possibly.

But I've given up.  The whole damn planet on lockdown and all the servers empty.

I would have joined you Clive, but I am still working my way through a complete Win 10/ GPL / and GTL install after Mr Gates sent me an update that didn't!!

I still have TeamSpeak to dload and install, plus get printers etc working...oh and I have partaken of a rather large Rum...……… mainly because I was so pi**ed off with Microsoft!! Don't think that would have improved my PB at Glenzaneriging...Gad handing.....globrandring...Glenzanderish thing.

Hope you are better soon, but much slower.

We are all so preoccupied with covid-19 that I was forgetting the virus-like properties of Windows10!

I recovered from the mild rum overdose just fine thanks Clive.
Just a temporary aberration, and very few people would have noticed any change I suspect.  Undecided.  I did try a couple of laps in the Slipstreamer at Werberg ( avoided the spelling glitch this time ) and that car is insanely fast around this track. Even though I have rarely driven the tank, and anyway have lost any setups that I might have had, I was still clocking 2:03's in a car that was struggling on the slightly tighter bits to carry the speed and the gearing was wrong anyway. The problem that I foresee with this car is that although it is the fastest, there will be no car that it can slipstream from, whereas ( like Clive said earlier ) any other car will benefit hugely if it can hook up the tow.

Thought for today...
Covid-19 apparently crossed the species barrier from animals to infect humans. It struck me in a moment of rare scientific clarity, that we would really be in trouble if a computer virus found a way to jump that same barrier !!  Roll Eyes  ………………..Strange how the human mind works at times?

I imagine that the the front rows of the grid will resemble a flotilla of aircraft carriers.  If one of them makes a clean break at the front then we can kiss him goodbye.  We shall just have to hope that they all stay in a bunch, to tow the rest of us, so we can wait for the the inevitable predation.

I fully understand what you are predicting in terms of aircraft carriers and the potential for a scrapfest at T1.
My biggest worry would be, that if enough of those slabs get intimate with each other and form a road block, there is no way that the brakes on the following cars will give any chance of avoiding the carnage  Undecided  Just head for a gap and close your eyes and kiss your a** steering wheel goodbye, is the only advice I can offer .

Should the server manifest itself on IGOR, I hope to be online at random times today testing my new GPL install, TeamSpeak, Speakers etc. So we might hook up a few practice laps, although I still have no idea which car to use.
If I want to win, then logic says it has to be a silver tank, but that requires spending tokens... and that is against my religion  scared
The Gordini could be fun if I can pick up some slipstream, but by the time I can get that little garlic cooker off the grid the fast cars will be half a lap away!! Plus there are no brakes required on this track, so no opportunities to demon brake down the inside??

Clive server will be back up in the next 5 mins.  I've just been loading the tracks for the JSMT and setting up a mini season (see mod forum for details).

Tried the SL and can only do mid-5s in free air.  And it's a hairy ride when the tyres get hot!
