Championship Standings here

Grid/server capacity: 22

Practice: ~19:20 (60 mins)
Qualifying: 20:20 (20 mins)
Race: 20:40 (5 laps)

Track: Nurburgring Nordschleife '67 Download this

Cars allowed Mercedes 300 SLR Download this

Time of Day Setting: 14:00
Start: STANDING
Tyre wear: Normal
Fuel consumption: Normal

Server: simracing.org.uk Wednesdays
Password: see above

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: Vintage tyres should be chosen if available.

Worked for me.

Maybe check that your Merc's are in the right folder?

Lovely version of this circuit. You get a much stronger impression of the gradient's and the turns seem sharper too.

If I'm still driving when the fast chaps have crossed the line, please chat away.

Tried to download the track and car last night. Track not a problem, but the download for the car froze 4 times on the Media fire start page.

Tried this morning on laptop and strangely my AV has identified Mediafire as a threat??!! infected with URL.Blacklist??? and a rash of pop-up ads?  Undecided

I have things to do today but will give things another try later

Your getting the ads because I'm no longer paying for my Mediafire. In fact I'm slowly running it down. I'll prepare a google download and redo the download link this morning.

EDIT: New link in first post.

Thanks Tony.
 Please understand that my earlier comments were not intended as a moan about you or your system, but more a criticism of Mediafire and their operating/advertising ethos. 
Is anyone that gets their computer infected with these infuriating pop up ads for Macafee etc., ever likely to buy the product???  I cannot think of anything that is more likely to turn me against them !
.
Anyway, I will d/load the new link later and hope to see you guys on track this evening  Wink

I just did a few laps of testing, to try set up the car and get used to it. It handles almost like the cars in GPL, physics wise, except braking is more vague and difficult to get a feel for the limit. It's also similar to the Jaguar in those other series we run, except this one has a lot more power, so it's tricky to keep it on the ideal line, plus the tyres have even less grip.

I experimented with just about every setting to try and cure the default understeer. It seems the main culprits are the tyre pressures and rear camber. Lowering the pressures and removing most of the camber at the rear seemed to fix the issue, though you still have to brake and turn earlier than with most other cars. The tyres actually overheat, a lot, with the middle part of the tyre going much hotter. You can't really fix this by lowering the pressures too much, as it kills top speed and makes the whole tyre overheat even more.

I'm not entirely sure about the gearing. Tried both the longest (default) and 1 click shorter, and both have pros and cons depending on where you are on the track. For now I'm staying with the shorter option, as it works a bit better through the 2nd and 3rd gear corners.

The fuel consumption I got was 13.95 liters per lap. The tyre wear is very high, so the last 2 laps are going to be a struggle.

Best time so far, starting through the shortcut from behind the pits, is a 8:54.2. Lost almost a second in the first sector compared to my earlier attempt with a different setup (longer gears, more oversteer), but then it got better afterwards.

I've uploaded my setup (v1b) to the online database.

57.0 from me with race setup but 2nd hot lap so i had fuel for 3 more laps after that. I made just few changes to H's setup - rear damper from 3 to 2 - all of them, and i set the tire pressure a little bit lower.
