Moderator's Report

Server replay time: 0

Baracus suffers some pedal problems on entering grid but does everything in his power to avoid an incident and escapes to pit before start of race. No blame can reasonably be apportioned here but it does serve as a reminder to all of the inherent dangers of mixing standing starts and possible technical problems. With hindsight, Baracus would have escaped earlier and we all should learn from his misfortune here.

Rather than look and report the mainly sensible reactions of all those involved in the ensuing choas our (a number of mods have been involved)general overview and some resulting conclusions follows.

Standing starts are inherently dangerous but, even with the unusual and unfortunate events seen as Watkins Glen, there are steps we can all take to limit the damage. At first sign of trouble on the grid you must slow, by blending off the throttle and if unavoidable braking, thus giving yourself every opportunity to react. Here, the vast majority of the grid followed these common sense rules and should be commended. However one or two appeared to ignore them and simply carried on accelerating as normal with inevitable results. I say "appeared" because the replays only show the action and not any other circumstances that may be involved and therefore they have been given the benefit of the doubt this time.

With their undoubted popularity, we will continue with standing starts but only with certain provisos. No benefit of doubt will be given to those who do not appear, we will rely on replay eveidence alone, to take all reasonable care in the future and the harshest possible penalties, within our rules, will be given out. 'Other circumstances' cannot be taken into consideration for future offences. We feel these steps are necessary and reasonable as such actions ruin hours of preparation and racing unnecessarily for others.

All members welcome.

Practice: 20:15 (10 mins)
Qualifying: 20:25 (10 mins)
Race: 20:35 (39 laps = ~80 mins)

Track: Watkins Glen (GP)  (download here)
Cars allowed: Any GTC76 plus GT40.
Time of Day Setting: 19:00
Start: STANDING
Pit Stops: You must make a minimum of one pit stop during which you must take on at least 1 litre of fuel or change your tyres. You cannot take your mandatory stop at the end of the pace lap, or with less than 1 lap to go.

Server: UKGTL Classics Cup
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.ukRules.
(3) The season will be run using the UKGTL Skin Pack 1.6.5.0 which will need to be installed prior to racing; please get it from the downloads page.
(4) 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 pit crew chief has proved most reliable.

(5) Driver lists can be found on the championship standings page

I might have entered something wrong along the line, its has been known Wink but no, the date is right here. The Enduro season kicks off in Argentina on the 7th and this is the second enduro event.

Ok, then the dates shown under the "Drivers and Standings" section are incorrect. That shows America then Argentina. Also then why has Watkins Glen appeared in the "forthcoming" schedule and not Buenos Aires?

When I look at it Le Mans looks like it will be the 1st enduro race. The 'Classics cup' also seems to be displayed in a muddled order.

Ta gents, think enduro season is right now? The sprints will be sorted after tonights testing (we just need to check some are ok). It might take a little longer as we haven't really firmed up end of season yet, its about 3 months away so no immediate panic Smiley

Oh my word what a track!!  Going to be a great race.

Just been spinning round (litterally as we were all in Panties) with Tony, Ade & Martin. Fantastic fun!

Cheers chaps.

p.s. Would the Mclaren be an option to run here?

Oh what fun we had, 4 panties together!!
Gonna miss this one as I'm on holiday.... gutted!!
For future reference.... taking the short cut, getting and serving a stop and go is slightly longer than going round the track properly!  Grin

Have fun guys!  :'(

29 laps? Is that right? 80/29 = 2.75. 2 mins 45 seems a bit pedestrian for these cars.

Hey Phil

Glad you survived.

Even I can get under 2 mins with some effort, I think the quick boys will be
doing 1.56 ish
If 80 mins is the norm, then 40 laps would seem appropriate.

Newbie question:
I have edited the .plr and I don't get auto pit, but when I go into the pit stall
it drops me to the garage screen, then I hit "drive" and I am in my garage
and have to drive rouns the sheds to et back onto pit lane.
Is this normal? or am I missing some pitting option?
Ta
Matt.

You were right to ask. No, that's not normal. Unless you were testing it in qualifying or practice(?). When you go to the pits mid race, it should bring up a clip board, where you decide what changes you want to make (i.e. more fuel/change tyres).

Thanks Legzy

Yes I was in practice. I've tried an AI race, and I get the clipboard
and the guys then change all 42 wheels (it seems like)
and take 120 secs before they ket me go. I have set nothing special
just 18 laps fuel, and I suppose they swap the tyres, have to see if I can control
what is done at a pit stop.

When the pitboard comes up use your up/down keys to select a subject i.e. body, tyres, fuel etc. Then use the left/right keys to select an option i.e. repair body, don't repair body. Also note that the fuel shown is the amount currently in your car and NOT the amount due to be added.
Hope this helps

I think this should be a 40 lap race. I'm doing almost 2:00 min laps in practise.
