Championship standings HERE

TRACK #3

Grid/server capacity: 22

Track: Donington Park (GP)

Cars allowed: Ford GT40

PM WT for track/car download pack which is required for this event.

Practice: ~19:20 (60 mins)
Qualifying: 20:20 (20 mins)
Race: 20:40 (28 laps)

Time of Day Setting: 14:00
Start: STANDING
Tyre wear: Normal
Fuel consumption: Normal
Pit stops: Not Required

Server: simracing.org.uk Wednesday
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: None

I will be present !  Wink

someone could post a setup, so I can compare it with mine, which is very bad.  Undecided
the settings are different from gpl's, I think

I just did a few laps and uploaded my last setup version to the online database, under the name of Ford GT40 v1b.

The main issue with the default was the way too high tyre pressures and the low damper settings.

The setup I did is not final, as I'm not entirely sure about whether to use stiffer rear (spring-wise) and softer anti-roll bar approach, or vice versa. Both seem to work fairly well. I'm also not sure about the diff power setting and also the toe. I was using a high caster initially, but it made the car way too nervous on any steering movement, so I decreased it by a lot and it was immediately much better.

Probably not going to test again until before the race next week, but when I do, I'll upload any setup updates that would result from the test.

Best lap time with the current setup - 1:45.1 on my second flying lap (better tyre temps I guess). As long as you drive it carefully and smoothly, not pushing the limit of the tyres, it's OK. The gear ratios are a bit awkward, as you either have to sacrifice 5th to have access to 1st gear for the hairpins, or use the shortest gears available and 2nd for the hairpins (which drops the revs quite a bit and makes it tricky). So far I went for the latter approach.

You are on the wrong layout Hristo, it is the shorter National layout according to the race post.

I drove on the server, so whatever it had loaded up (it was drivable, despite the gdb mismatch). Not a big deal, the setup should still work even on the shorter layout.

That's 2secs better than I've managed so far.

Just did a few more laps and recorded the session on my Twitch, if it's of any help. I also made some changes to the setup and improved my lap time, but I'm not sure you're going to like the balance with that one. It's more unstable so to allow more speed to be carried into the corners, so it requires more micro-corrections with the steering and throttle.

My best time is the last flying lap on the stream (at around 14:22):

Also uploaded the updated setup to the database. One more thing - turning off auto-clutch is worth a few tenths, but you got to manage the throttle on shifting.

Oh, I don't actually know, it was just a thought on why someone might be losing additional time. I know I was in that position until just months ago when Dimitar told me about it  Roll Eyes

Besides, with this car in particular, it's just a lot more tricky having to blip and lift up precisely. With most cars in GTL you can just floor it on upshifts and the wheelspin is manageable, but not with this one, so I thought I should mention it.
