Moderator's Report

Summary

A very exciting race at the front but the race distance took it's toll on the recent Division 2 and Clubman's graduates. At the start, Syd overhauled pole sitter Hristo but he couldn't pull away and build the gap he needed to compensate for the Ferrari pit stop. Kruger and Lorenzo had a titanic battle for third place, continually swapping positions, notably on lap 2 when they fought side by side through Stavelot. At the end of lap 3 Lorenzo finally got the better of Kruger through Blanchimont and broke away. Syd lead until lap 5 when he made a small mistake at Masta and Hristo leaped at the opportunity to get by on the run down to Stavelot. Hristo kept the lead to the chequered flag but Syd dropped down the order after his pit stops. Lorenzo eventually claimed second place and Kruger hung on to third despite a determined challenge from Ken on the last lap.


Server replay time: 0h00m55s

Lap 1 - L'Eau Rouge

Art and Neil are side by side into L'Eau Rouge. Warp contact sends Neil off into the armco barrier on the inside, he bounces back on to the track and is collected by Napo who has no chance to avoid him. Bernie and Clive manage to avoid the carnage but Burt is not so lucky and he looses a rear wheel in the melee.

Lap 7 - Pit Lane

Bernie's pit stop is 1 second short.


Server replay time: 0h49m46s

Lap 15 - Stavelot

After a superb exit from Masta, Ken drafts up to Kruger who has decided to take a defensive line on the entry to Stavelot. Ken tries to go around the outside and is in a perfect position but at risk from warp. Sure enough warp intervenes and Ken is sent spinning off. Fortunately Kens's Cooper is not badly damaged and he manages to complete the lap and the race.

Division 1 - Round 2 - Spa

Round 2 of the Season 15 Div 1 championship is at Spa.  Remember it is PRO rules for Div 1 this season so please take care on lap 1, especially at L'Eau Rouge.  I know those Lotus and Eagle pit stop times are long but these chassis are so much faster than the Cooper at Spa.  With a good start from pole position an Eagle could make up a huge amount over a Cooper that started at the back of the grid before the end of the first lap!  Don't forget, incident reports should be entered on the SRou system following the link at the bottom of the results table when it appears.  Race details below.

Div 1 Season 15 Round 2 is this Sunday at 9:00 p.m. London UK time.

I won't be able to make this ( :'( -  I like Spa, even though I'll get quite a serious thrashing in the Cooper....I could probably squeeze a 3:21 out of it...). Good luck to the Men of Cooper!

It will show up once the mod uploads results, which I assume will be done today, as soon as the server replay is available.

You have to wait for the provisional results, otherwise it doesn't know who was in the race. Wink

Well my first D1 race is now under my belt and boy am I'm glad it's over. Started dead last and thought my day had ended at L'Eau Rouge but despite hitting Burt (NF), I was able to carry on. With the field miles ahead, I just aimed to keep the revs low and drive as smoothly as possible. Well that lasted about 3 laps where I had the save of all saves in Burnenville. Pulled off a classic 4 wheel drift and didn't hit anything. Pure luck it was. Then on lap 7, I just nipped the dirt out of Masta and spun pretty hard into the wire fence but miraculously was able to continue.  From then on, I just tried to get into the 21s, which I failed to do.  :'(

Tks for the fun.

Grats to the Podium.

It was the usual suspects at the sharp end of the grid but there was a pretty tight cluster of Coopers just behind with me in amongst them after slightly improving my best time for this car.  I’d achieved a small personal milestone in preparation for this event by eventually getting the Coop negative at Spa after years of trying, albeit not that hard I have to say!

Anyway I got away well and followed Kruger closely through Eau Rouge. Brendan had been delayed by a squirmy Lorenzo and as we all fell in line on the run up to Les Combes I slotted in between them both. Over the first few laps I had a front row view of Lorenzo and Kruger having a right set to ahead of me. I was worried I might get involved with any incident they might have so hung back a little but Brendan was lurking with intent and so it was a bit of a dilemma. Eventually Lorenzo did make a pass and also Brendan went missing so it all got a bit more relaxed.

It was then a case of tracking Kruger and weighing up whether there was any chance of making a move on him. The gap between us ebbed and flowed. I had trouble with my front left mid race, it seemed to be over inflated and kept getting hot in the middle through Burneville, which then made negotiating Malmedy quite difficult. A combination of fuel load lightening and not pushing so hard through Burnenville seemed to cure this and as we started the last lap I was within striking distance. I got a nice run out of Masta but Kruger sensibly took the inside line approaching Stavelot. I got a slingshot but we were side by side going in. I was mindful of possible lag contact but it is so easy to slide wide there I didn’t want to stay too far to the left. The inevitable happened though and I was shunted in to the boards. Unbelievably the car was still driveable although I found when I got to La Carrier it didn’t like going round right handers!!

Syd was closing but thankfully I had enough in hand to limp home still fourth.

Grats to the podium, the race for me is always for third these days!!

A new PB (3.19.4) in qually was only enough for 4th on the grid a few tenths behind Kruger and Lorenzo.  Again I made a poor start and lost out to Ken into Eau Rouge.  This put me 5th with Art close behind.

I managed to keep with the clan of Coopers albeit with a few near misses on the grass and after 5 or so laps the gap between 3rd and 6th was only around 2 seconds.  That was until my camshaft made a brave bid for freedom and I was out.

So, an exhilarating race while it lasted and a big disappointment to bow out when I did.  But them's pro rules, eh?

Grats to the podium.

Canny complain about  my performance,  it was good enough for any circus clown .
I made a safe getaway off the grid,  mindful of dodging any l'eau rouge Lap 1 carnage only to see one optimistic individual (dunno who) shoot past me at warp speed right into the middle of the pack. 
I managed to avoid the mayhem and then settled down into the cockpit for a long 15 laps race .

I had decided to take things easy at first , and let the race settle down until my pit stop when my fuel load would be light and tyre temps at there optimum and then hopefully try to gain a few places .

Unfortunately all plans came to nought as my fuel gauge was soon showing empty and I was running on vapour only (the stupid mechanics had forgot to fill the tank up for 15 laps "again") so I found myself coasting into retirement on lap 7 or 8

In the true tradition of dear old jack brabham (he lost 2 grand Prix for the same reason ) spirit of things I slunk away to the transporter before kicking everything in sight ,although with hindsight  I doubt wether I would have gotton any higher than the top 6 even if i had carried to the finish , so nothing to complain about really .

I think these D1 races are going to be a big challenge to my personal stamina , not sure if I can do these "pro" distances without a coffee break at some point during the race .

autopilot anyone ?

The race was very exciting and finaly I made it to the end.

I managed to string together four good sectors to get me a 19.2 PB lap. Start wasn't too hecting from my angle and I made it through lap one without too much hussle. Had a fantastic battle with lorenzo for three laps changing position back and forth then, once he got his groove, he started pulling away leaving me at the mercy of Ken. I, much like Ken, hate being chase and would rather be the chaser but I had to play the rabbit role. Nothing I pulled allowed me to increase the gap. I was getting a goot exit from Malmedy, as I've now learnt due to his front left tire issue, so it was a status quo for entire race. No time to relax at all.

Last lap and Ken gets Malmedy spot on and backs that up with great Masta and soon, sucking up from behind, getting a slingshot for the outside of Stavelot. We go in side by side and we both go a bit too much towards the middle, a tire width between us perhaps. There was an unfortunate warp contact which shot Ken towards the barrier whilst I felt nothing at all. I'm sorry Ken that it happened and I'm thankful that you were able to resume and finish the race. I've looked at both, client and server replay and both show the same. Its a shame as it was poised to be a cracking battle to the finish line.

Grats to Hristo and Lorenzo.

Hi Phil,

Just wondering if I should receive any points for the C'n'B team here?

We need all we can get to catch them flying Coopermen.

Thanks,

Will

{edit} Never mind Phil...I see that the pts have been added. Thanks.

Cheers.

Im bit disgusted of how bad div1 drivers are lately all this turn 1 mayhem, taking the biscuit, although i didnt submit a incident, whats the point when i was out of the race even before getting around the 1st corner :/

To be honest if all races are gonna be like this, perhaps they should see how the clubmans do it :/
