In case you have been away from GTL, there have been GTL lobby problems. But.... it's all fixed now!

This is what you do to connect to the server:

1) Download & run this HOSTS HACK
2) Start GTL & select to the lobby
3) Register a new lobby account (I suggest the same name but with a blank email & password)
4) Log in with your new account & you should see a list of servers

euro

If this fix has not worked for you, then please check out this thread for more info/questions: http://www.simracing.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=6869.msg119486#msg119486

But most importantly, do not suffer in silence (also, don't leave it till the Monday night Wink).

All members welcome.

Grid/server capacity: 28

Practice: ~19:20 (60 mins)
Qualifying: 20:20 (20 mins)
Race: 20:40 (42 laps = ~65mins)

Track: Thruxton Download here
Cars allowed: Alfa Romeo GTA, Mercedes 300SL, Mini Cooper 1310S Download here, Renault Alpine 110

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

Server: UKGTL RDs
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) This race will be run using the UKGTL Skin Pack 1.8.0.0 which will need to be installed prior to racing.
(4) Driver lists can be found on the championship standings page
(5) 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

If the server shows Andestorp, load it and use "Advance to next event". Then Thruxton will load.

A deceptively difficult track Thruxton.

Good lines are essential to good lap times and there is the added problem of bumps and undulations just where you really don't need them. The Alpine feels great around here and is a safe bet along with the Alfa. The Mini is like a fairground ride but is quicker for me - when I can keep it shiny side up - 1:30 best so far. Haven't tried the Merc yet.

All the ingredients for a cracking race I reckon and I hope we get the turnout it deserves.

I've tried the Alfa and Mini 1310S like you faster in the Mini - much more stable through those long right handers and braking for the Chicane.  However, on the 2nd lap the tyre temps start to rise and by lap 3 is red for left rear - front yellow.  Do you get the same and how long can you survive in the red, turns orange/yellow once you enter that left hander before the chicane - does go shades of red and how deep, it's about Ferrari Red on mine.  Is it my setup or those poor little wheels/tyres being hammered through those long right hand curves? 


Advice please.

With higher than normal tyre pressures on the front (300+) the temps looked better. My rear tyres are red from lap 1 on most tracks but with all the work being done with the front wheels, I don't worry too much about them as long as they don't go pop on me. Again more pressure should help.

I haven't done long runs, but I wouldn't mind betting that front tyre wear on the Mini will be a factor later in the race.

I did a test race last night and the Alpine is superb to run here as is the Alfa which sounds like it's screaming all the way round. These two are great opponents for each other. I could never master the Mini so I'll leave that to you experts. The Merc is like a heavy old whale around this track but it has a good power advantage.

I hope we get a good crowd tonight cos this track deserves it  Cool

Thanks for that will give it a go.  This is the first time with my limited experience of Xd I've seen tyre temps go beyond green, although I have seen the front brakes with only red remaining.  We raced the mini every fortnight in a NZ league season on Sunday mornings, about a year ago, including a 70 min end of season enduro - happy in my ignorance obviously.

There is one perfect line through Church where you can go flat out...............

Get it wrong though and your bouncing across the left hand grass which is thankfully wide enough to accommodate the errant driver

Well, that was really disappointing, FF packed up on the first lap & it made an already quite twitchy Mini really hard to drive. When you have a wheel with no resistance it's hard to get the turn-in right & I got the second corner of the complex (Cobb) wrong, rolled the car & it killed the engine.

Oh well, congrats to the podium.  clap clap clap

Ridiculous my driving tonight.
I just spun and rolled over more times than in the last 5 years of SIM racing.  Angry
It was just me or the physics of the 1310 Mini aren't good? Ridiculous.
I bet that Tony and Bill were laughing (not on the floor, because they were still driving) near the floor for sure.  Grin
Quit with suspension and steering issues.
Really hope you all had fun.

Cheers

Perhaps the 1310 needs stabilisers? Smiley PR's two wheeler through Church had me cracked up. Real shame as I enjoyed that.

Didn't quite have the pace of the FWD fellas in quali but delighted to keep up with Ade and keep him honest in race. Could only do that by pushing as hard as I could and paid the obvious price with 10 laps to go and think I completed the race on my rims.
 
Congrats Ade and Matt. Nice to cyu Steve Smiley A Monday night blast is a great way to get over the blues (hope I wasn't the only one at work today Undecided).

Are all races gonna be that length? As I felt that was a little longer than needed.
