Season 37 – 1955 Grand Prix – Round 9 – East London

In an effort to save the planet and cut down on our environmental footprint we are staying in South Africa for the ninth race in the 1955 Grand Prix series. The second South African race will be on the Prince George Circuit at East London. Opened in the 1930s, it hosted the South African Grand Prix in 1934, and again from 1936 to 1939 when racing was halted due to World War II. The original 23.4 km circuit was shortened to 17.7 km in 1936. It was further modified to meet the Formula One regulations in 1959 when the track was shortened again and built into a seaside amphitheatre. East London hosted three rounds of the F1 South African Grand Prix in the 1960s until the increasing power and speed of the cars meant that it became too small for Formula One. The race was moved to Kyalami. Tonight we will be using the 3.9 km long 1959 layout.

There looked to be more elevation change coming up to the last corner than I was aware of in GPL.

The harder I try at this place, the slower I get.
Perhaps I should stop trying!

oh bugger!!! he's been practising again  Undecided . Does that compel me to do some homework before tonight's race. Or maybe I should encourage Clive L  to practice non-stop before the race if he is getting slower???

So many variables and so little brain power.  wacko

Race server is up on iGOR for practice, so please test your connections.

I like the history of F1 so whenever I can, I try to write a few notes in the race announcement to describe the historical context. It is quite interesting to look at google maps and see what the circuits look like now. The East London track is pretty much intact but it looks a lot narrower in real-life than it does in GPL. It just emphasises how brave (or crazy) the drivers were in the 50s.

Yes Phil, I thought it looked narrow too. I put it down to being viewed from the top of the Google van.

Save Faster

What a race!

Another start I had difficulties in controlling the car

I lost many positions, but after it stabilized it was really fun

Excellent disputes, between me, Policardi, Tagomago, Grupp, Alain and I don't remember if there were more people at this party

Sorry Alain, for that touch on the curve,I dove for overtaking, trusting the green light on my brake and it ended very fast.

My only alternative was to put the first gear and attack the curve.

I don't know if you noticed but later on, I slow down to return you to my position, it was the least I could do, But we continue with our disputes

A few more laps, I was on Tagomago's tail, but I had to brake and get the car off the track so I wouldn't hit him in T1

I lost a few more positions over there.

What I had left was to row, it was a really fun race

Congratulations to the podium and I am very happy for the victory of my great Brother Farina!

Bravissímo Kike!

I've loaded the chassis the drivers used into the token calculator spreadsheet.  For the next race the available tokens will be as declared in the table below (the table will also appear in the next race announcement).  The calculated values are automated but selecting the cars is a manual process so please check your tokens to make sure I haven't made a silly error.

Albert took the Mercedes W196 again but as in the last race he didn't have enough tokens so he overspent and consequently is disqualified again. It doesn't make much difference to the championship because Albert is not a championship contender but he does loose the points for this race.

Albert please have another look at the rules on the championship page. If you want me to translate them for you (into Portuguese?) I can do that with an internet translator but I won't be able to verify the translation, I'll have to trust the translator.

  the Race was a great loneliness for me, I was in a field without gravity, no driver could be seen ahead and none behind, I had to take anti-depressants during the race.

  looking at the race map, in front of me the battle was fierce, as were the drivers behind, so this dull race was a sensation of my own!
  Congratulations Farina, you were very strong during the race!

really, i just have to say a few words and the great happiness i feel now.
   Since the mod 55 came out, this has been the best race I have had with those cars, my joy comes across my face since this season in mod 55 has been a disaster for me, but today I achieved what I longed for so much , (to be competitive) and although clive in the first laps got away from me, I could see that he could go faster, in some sectors and that made him reach it.
   But Clive is not a rookie and it would not be easy for me to surpass him, but I exerted strong pressure to try and in the last corner 4 laps before the end of the race, he made the mistake and went a bit long, that gave me the pass and the victory that he had so much desire.
    Clive, excellent race an excellent opponent, believe me that I enjoy this race as if it were the last of my life, I am very happy.
    congratulations also to jonnie for that podium in 3 place.
    today I celebrate with some beers
  P.D 1 - thanks brasilians brothers for praisng me, DU, Smiley, and long live GPL <3
  P.D 2  please, some drivers in special one lap less, watch the prebluda, almost I loose the race for one of them.
   so happy   clap

beer and speed, I love it, but separate
