Welcome to round 4 of the Porsche RSR Challenge - This week we return to the normal 30 minute sprint race at the recently released High Plains Raceway.
This is a technical and hilly circuit near Denver, Colorado.
The author recommends having shaders patch and grass turned on - it will apparently look pretty bad without.

This season is loosely based on our first outing in these cars several years ago, so expect very short qualifying sessions.
The 1st series featured single lap qualifying which was a bit awkward to monitor, so I will be reducing the qualifying sessions to only allow time for 2 flying laps.
So make sure you have space around you and get a good 'banker' in before you go nuts Wink

Password: see above

Practice: 19:30 (53 mins)
Qual: 20:23 (7 mins)
Race: 20:30  (30 mins + 1 lap)


Cars allowed:
1972 Porsche RSR
(Kunos Porsche pack #1 add-on)

Skin pack available here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vp9qetzvztkfnk0/RSR%20Skinpack.zip?dl=0
Drop it into your assetto corsa folder - It shouldn't over-write anything unless you already have any of the skins included.


Track: High Plains Raceway
Download link: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/high-plains-raceway.34284/
This track comes with non-existant cameras! - so I've fixed them and you can download them here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ie9osuhce1rdx89/Highplains%20cameras.rar?dl=0
Drop the contents of the RAR file into your "Your-Steam-Directory\assettocorsa\content\tracks\gb_high_plains_raceway\full\data"
It will ask you to over-write the files already in there - say yes to all.
Gutbomb has given me permission to modify and share camera files for this (and all his tracks for that matter, I'll be sorting Meadowdale out for the DRM event in 2 weeks time also) - I'll upload a non-over-writing version to RaceDepartment at some point for if/when he updates his own files - for now this will give you a tidier file structure.

Practice server should be up and running - Please also take the time to download and install my fixed track cameras (post above), otherwise you'll mostly be watching the in-field buildings on your replays Wink

Tiiiiiiiim, what's wrong with you ?!  laugh

Your track picks mate...  Grin This one is full of blind corners, with almost no landmarks, in the hills and slopes. Delightful but heh !!
Also there are some buggy little joins between some kerbs and the tarmac, that could be less funny.  Roll Eyes

Had a quick look last night, it’s similar to Willow Springs but not as flowing. Not so keen on this with its blind tight corners but sure it’ll feel better with more familiarity.

It's a great track once you learn it - and just as featureless in real life so no complaining on that front  Tongue

It's also filled with overtaking opportunities and corners that suit the RSR nicely, and of course nasty mean corners too - but you don't drive an RSR if you want easy Wink

Will jump even this one probably. I'll have a work meeting late on Weds evening and no time at all to learn a new circuit.

Sorry about that. Have fun

hmm, i'm going to be a tail end charlie tonight me-thinks. Have only run about 10 laps and most of them were spent falling off at different corners trying to learn the layout. Now know which way most corners go but havent spent any time learning how to take them quicker.  Sad Also got brand new pedals installed today so my muscle memory will be all over the shop. Tongue

I remember this track back from GTL days, Fiat 128 was good fun then. However, 911 is too annoying to drive here so theres no point to even show up.  balloon

Too bad for Jos that T1 incident,  Cry looks like you hadn't any brake pedal efficiency Lorenzo, watching the replay. Damn hardware when it goes fool..

Great race, but Tim lied to us as I said right after the race, as he didn't make any mistake really, only few little ones, and at a high pace. Uncatchable. Add to that he didn't accept I could hold the fastest lap and beat it by 5 hundredths ! Congrats !!

I more and more hate this qualif format  Grin Completely missed mine again but appearently wasn't alone, as I grabbed a P2 thanks to a quite crappy "flying" lap, was very surprised, and even more that it held over the rest of the session time.

Very happy with my race and consistancy.  angel

Well that went not to great. Had a game crash during qually so had to start at the back. T1 went well for me this time! Only to got clipped by someone a few corners later. Tried to work my way up again and I had GT's car in my sights when my pc decided to give me a blue screen. Someting to do with the GPU it seems. Hopefully i fixed it now and that it is not a dying videocard..
Went on to drive for an hour on the SRO server and that went well, so I hope next week some normal racing again.

Anyone got a replay file for me of the race?

cant say i enjoyed that too much last night. A complete contrast to the Spa event. The track itself is okay but it looked crap in my Rift S and i just didnt gel with it. Undecided
Had a better qually than expected position wise but think i was just fastest of the slower guys.

Got a great start (new pedals work well!) and dared to go up the inside of Fabri on the right and a white car on the left. But as we entered T1 the white car just suddenly jerked sideways into the car on the right and as they both flew off right, i was so startled that i followed them off, though only running a little wide to continue on. Wily old Fabri must have had time to duck back under the mess (i hope!) as was fearful i would take him with me in the confusion.

Anyway, jogged on for quite a while, had a brief chase by Jos early in the race but he was quicker than me so got past with relative ease (unlike last week!) and i soon had a healthy gap over GT following whilst keeping visuals on the 3 guys ahead duking it out, until i ran wide and they pulled a gap. Jos must have fallen off later on so i found myself in 4th  Shocked Stayed that way until 2 laps from the end and a safe 4sec gap over Jos, when i absent mindedly left my braking too late at the end of the long straight, tried to correct and got a tank slapper spin into the sand.  Cry such an unnecessary error from a bit of lonely boredom, and Jos romped by and i finished 5th  taz

Really enjoyed that again, apart from the last 3 corners which I just could not get right all evening, and made two separate errors there which cost me..

Started well for once however; small contact with Fabri at T1 (sorry) but hopefully nothing serious, and ended up P3, fighting with Fabri and later a recovering Jos. Good fun, until I made my first error, getting into a tank-slapper at the last corner. Bumbled along the grass down the s/f straight, losing places to Fabri and Jos and re-joining behind them. This would have been fine, but unfortunately when I crossed the s/f line I was still on the grass and I think this is where I lost a lap - I guess the timing line ends at the track edge and does not extend beyond it. Made another error at the penultimate corner some laps later and went off a long way into the wilds, and again re-joined just behind Jos, which led to a nice battle until the end.

Congrats Tim and podium, looking forward to the next one.
