Aww crap, really sorrier now. :(

 

No don’t be I was trying to tell you it made no difference to my race and if anything it was some much needed excitement to a lonely second half of the race :)

Feels like a good time to post this awesome video again!

 

 

 

Basically, if you're following another car closely you cannot brake where you normally brake, especially into the slower corners at somewhere like Monza, or you will definitely hit the car in front (unless you pull out to make a pass).  It can sometimes be surprising how much you close on someone who seems relatively far ahead on the track in a braking zone, so it's always better to err on the side of caution, brake early, then come off the brake like Aris shows in the video.  If you don't do this and you're at the limit of your braking there's nothing you can do to react.

I'm no Excel guru (just stepping in for Meers on the spreadsheet duties!)

Cool we'll get Meers to take a look at the points when he gets back just so we can iron out issues with the spreadsheet

 

No worries! Brought the laptop with me and the next couple of days will be rainy so I'll see what I can do.

 

As for choosing a different car, no probs. I think it's time for me to try something else.

Which points are we talking about, Erik?

 

On sgp gt4 + gt3 points plus 50 % more for Monza equal 148, plus 2 for fastest lap in Monza.

 

It doesnt effect positions, dont worry 😊

Well it doesn't really, so here's the end results (it's raining cats and dogs here so I've got the laptop open)! 😅

Splendid job from me to @Erik, @SANtoOosand @SneakyNinja for the podiums! I'm currently busy making the leaderboard for season 6 with the new tech (auto-grabbing the results from the simracing.gp website) which is coming along nicely.

How is your break @Meers?  For season 6 I'm going to be having all the races under the one series on simracing.gp, so the leaderboard will auto update on there.  So there wouldn't necessarily be a need for the spreadsheet, unless you want to have it as a record for the future?  (or as a learning tool with what you're doing to grab the results).

@SharkyOB Do you have time for a session today? I was thinking we could either use the Nissan or some 3rd car and try to get that up to speed together at Monza or some other track. I can stream my view too with twitch or steam.

 

Everyone is welcome aboard of course. :)

Nice one Erik!!  I could possibly do something this afternoon if you aren't working?  I can't do tonight though as I'm rehearsing.

I'll head on now, is the server still set to Monza?  Probably just need a quick talk through of the settings on that setup as it's really good!

Ugh I love to race I just hate the AC UI (downloaded content manager - not sure it’s helped)

I will see if I can download and install the track tonight see if I can get on with it enough.

 

I got a new wheel, upgrade from CSR to a CSW. I expected a difference from previous but the jump in fidelity and build quality is incredible!

Hi Guys back from the vacation... seems like I missed an eventful race last thursday! Congrats @Erik for the championship win. Glad I was able to beat you in at least one race (even if it was your first time properly driving laguna 😅). And glad to see @Yannik joining as well from the powerQ crew 😄

@davejm I would definitely be interested to race this car / track combo on Thursday! Would be a nice historic race through an old hometown track of mine

Ah brilliant @texlex45, it's a really interesting combo!   Just had a practice now and I'm around 8 seconds off @SharkyOB's lap time and I'm all over the place, but it's fun.  I'm treating this Thursday race as a cruising session and I'm gonna try and get around slow and steady and enjoy it.

Thanks so much to @Erik for the coaching session last night!!  It's convinced me I need to start using the Motec app so I can try to understand more what the car is doing and how setup changes affect things.  I defo feel a bit overwhelmed by the amount there is to learn, but I'm up for the challenge :D

You can do it all without motec by paying attention to tyre widget, tyre wear and temperatures in setup menu and watching replays... But its easier to just drive some laps and then go see in MoTeC what pressures and temps you had. ;)

Oh man, that sounds great. I wasn't aware that was a possiblility now. No worries, saves me a lot of work haha.

 

As for a learning tool, I have plenty of learning opportunity for stuff like this at work, trying to streamline workflow internally for us, so no worries about that either. :)

 

Edit: break's going fine mate. Although we have a lot of rain in these parts unfortunately. Been at the beach with the kids on Sunday, the only nice weather day we had so far. 😅

@davejm Is there a practice server for Bremgarten? 

 

No mate, the practice server only works for ACC.   I've got some PC parts to make a dedicated server (which I'm going to be able to use for AC and ACC) but haven't got around to building it yet.

Ah ok no worries mate. Was just wondering how you knew about @SharkyOB 's time on Bremgarten and thought there might be a server to answer that :) 

 

Did quite a few practice laps tonight to get the hang of the car and track and boy oh boy is it fun 🥳 The sliding, the turning the car with the throttle and managing the momentum is such a fun and different experience from the aero heavy GT3s. Managed a 2:38.6 as my fastest lap today but no idea whether thats any good or not...

Ah yes, there is a separate Assetto Corsa thread so we were discussing times on there.  I managed a 2:39 so far, and I think Sharky has done a 2:31

I've sent out an email to registered members of the simracing.gp community to drum up interest for the multi-class race at the end of August.  I know this is some time away, but could I ask the regulars to register for the event, just so we can get it as fully populated as possible for any cross-community reach outs that I do?  Even if you're not sure to be racing, please register for now if you can.
