Moderator's Report

Summary (Works)
A majority of Gordinis meant anyone choosing a faster car would have a good chance of victory, and so it turned out. A steady drive by Phil Thornton in a Maserati saw him take victory from Evil Clive in a Connought. After a hard-fought battle with Phil, Bastian Grupp had to settle for third place. A minor mistake caused him to lose time and despite the fast straight-line speed of the Vanwall he couldn’t make up the gap over the final few laps. JonnyO won the battle of the Gordinis.


Server replay time: 0h01m03s

Lap 1 – Turn 1 – GrandPrixYannick and Evil Clive
Evil Clive gets a blistering start from P8 on the grid. His Connaught easily out drags the Gordinis ahead of him and he slots into P3 on the approach to turn 1. Yannick has had a good start from P3 and as he approaches turn 1 his Gordini is up to speed and starts to gain on Clive’s Connaught.  Yannick doesn’t quite get alongside at turn-in but he keeps a very tight line and hugs the kerb. Clive takes his normal racing line and cuts across Yannick. Contact is made and both cars spin out. Clive can continue but unfortunately Yannick loses a wheel and is out of the race.

Yannick didn’t have 50% overlap at turn-in so he wasn’t in a position to claim the corner but he was entitled to a little more room. He made every effort to keep to the inside and short of braking very early (which would have risked him being rear-ended) he tried hard to avoid contact. So no blame can be apportioned to Yannick.

Clive would have been unsure how far ahead (if at all) he was of Yannick. So, whilst the overlap was small enough to claim the corner, he wasn’t allowing for any margin of error. In the interests of self-preservation he should have left at least a car’s width on the inside until he could see the other cars in his mirrors.

  • EvilClive (E vil55)advice — Leave room for other cars until it is clear you are ahead.

Season 39 – 1955 GP – Round 1 – Balcarce

For the first race in the 1955 Grand Prix series we will visit Balcarce in Argentina.  Balcarce was the birthplace of the legendary Argentinian driver Juan Manuel Fangio and we will be racing on the circuit that bears his name. The Autódromo Juan Manuel Fangio was opened in his honour on 18th January 1971. The circuit has hosted events in the Turismo Carretera series but it has never hosted Formula 1 races and to this day remains rather underdeveloped. However, it deserves a place on the 1955 calendar due to its association with Fangio.

Do we know who the PRO drivers are yet? I'm going to need all the help I can get with the extra tokens  Wink  Wink

(I was driving the CA71 cars earlier today and then I jumped into the Gordini - quite an experience)  Roll Eyes

UPDATE: I've just created a spreadsheet (Google Sheet) to help with the token system. Here's a link should you wish to try it. In order to EDIT it you'll have to open it, click on FILE and then MAKE A COPY. Instructions are included in red text on the Sheet but it should be pretty self-explanatory.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12SxYDGmgqdBVF8-XZSDJWqcBbhKr-1qrD_hd8ofoXcM/edit?usp=sharing

There is a second tab on there for those of you racing the F2 cars this season.

Thanks Pete for the preadsheet! I had already create mine the old 55's way on pencil and paper but I'll adopt the modern ways  wheelchair

I'll update the race post when I've decided who the Works drivers are. I'll probably get that done tonight.  Wink

Sorry Pete, I didn't express myself right. In fact I had not seen the extra tokens for privateers part and thoght that was an update of the initial post.

I see that the alien typist has arrived at the eleventh hour.

I was hoping that we would all be using the same software this season.   Roll Eyes

Had lots of fun but any chance of a good result vanished when someone dismantled Yannick's car at T1 and left me off-roading to avoid the damage.

I was also delayed by Evil doing some ballet moves at T1 on lap two!

Grats Phil and podium.

That was actually quite enjoyable.

Had some fun following Fran for a number of laps.  Then managed to pass, just to throw it away at the next corner.
Wasn't sure if I'd picked up an engine issue, or just down due to loss of the tow.  Seems like a bit of both.

Apologies for the broadside-hit Philippe.
Looked as though your car was upside-down & on fire,  so you did well to get that moving again/complete race distance!

Cheers all.
Dave.

With 25 registered drivers it is borderline 2 servers. To be safe I opted for 2 but we could have managed with 1 because only 18 drivers turned up. I've rearranged the championship tables to have separate championships for Works and Privateers (which is the way to do it if we have 2 servers).

The race was great for me. I managed to make my car advantage pay off but I was surprised how fast Bastian's Vanwall was down the straights. My Maserati couldn't match it when we were side by side. I lost the lead on lap 1 and I spent the next 10 or 12 laps trying to pressure Bastian into a mistake. When it finally came I squeezed through but by then Evil had caught us and he was all over my gearbox like a rash. I manged to stay cool and keep the car on the track until the end. Somehow I don't think my championship lead will last long but I'll enjoy it while I can

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.

     Congratulations Phil !!!! It was a beautiful victory.
    In the works there were only 3 cars not Gordini , they made the podium ! There was a sameness in the strategies! It must be a very competitive championship, we could ask the drivers to confirm their presence in the next races 55, it was a shame to have 2 servers. Those who do not confirm their presence are subject to being left off the grid. Just a suggestion! Wink
