Welcome to the early 1970's and the start of Season 16!

I'm sorry it's taken a little while to kick off - but I've had a fair bit to learn before reaching the point we were ready to kick off.
This season is primarily to iron out any remaining bugs in my ability to run stuff - do not fear if you particularly enjoy the cars as they can easily come back in a bigger series at a later date if demand is high.


The Ford Vs Alfa series is a short one, but should make up for that in smiles per mile as both cars are an absolute hoot to throw around, are evenly matched and have given some fantastic close fights in the test races.

This will be a series consisting of just 4 races. Each race will be 45 minutes in length (plus 1 lap) and will feature a mandatory stop for tires - tire wear itself will actually be reduced to 60% of normal, this will allow the cars to remain equal over the course of the race and allow complete freedom to the driver to decide when they want to pit (I want to see some interesting strategy play here guys Wink ).

Skin selection and custom skins are not only permitted but encouraged in order to get the best looking grid, the standard Ford skins are a little lacking in variety and real liveries so need some help. Ford skins can be found in the link below (copy and paste - the link breaks the forum code Roll Eyes
Code:
https://www.racedepartment.com/search/1870620/?q=escort&t=resource&c[categories][0]=7&c[child_categories]=1&o=relevance

We will also continue to run the V1.2 Alfa - it's not broken and provides identical performance to the Ford so I don't want to risk changing anything without good reason.



Detail summary:

- 4 rounds

- Stock Ford Escort RS
        Vs
- Alfa Romeo GTAm V1.2 from Racedepartment
DO NOT USE THE V.1.21 DOWNLOAD AS YOU WILL SUFFER SERVER MISMATCHES!

- Skin selection and custom skins encouraged!
  Skin Pack now released! Download it here - if you extract it into your Assetto Corsa directory (xx:/.../steamapps/common/assettocorsa) it should put everything in the right place.

- 45 minute races (+1 lap) with mandatory stop for tires (Pit window opens after 5 minutes and closes at 40 minutes).

- Round 1: Vallelunga Classic - 13th May
- Round 2: Luccaring - 20th May
- Round 3: Sugo - 27th May
- Round 4: Goodwood - 3rd June

Please post you car choice and skin in this thread.


P.S. I realise I've spelt Luccaring wrong in the poster - but I'm not fighting with the 15 year old photo pc again to fix it!  Tongue

That'll be me - the easiest way for me is if you wang them up on dropbox or similar if you're making your own cars from scratch.
If it's a standard skin or one from somewhere like Racedepartment I just need a hyperlink to it Smiley

Hi Tim,

Me and Fabri were thinking about making a "team custom skin and helmet" for the Alfa. It's ok if we do that? It will be the same skin for both (with obviously different race numbers).

So Magnesium Team is ready to race with custom skins


I have created two rar files of the skins. Do we need to do something else in particular? Never used the CS online.

Fabri: https://www.mediafire.com/file/p10twod5lh9eibf/30_Fabri_Fibra.rar/file
Barone: https://www.mediafire.com/file/jflor5ukc9b9cm8/69_Barone.rar/file

cheers
