Hi All,

Post a retrospective of Round 1 please take note of the following points in preparation for round 2.

    - NEVER, EVER, EVER HIT THE BIG RED BUTTON AFTER QAULY. :)
    - Or for that matter exit from the race start screen. It's a bit of a pain to restart the session if someone has exited. (That being said - eagle eyed Schroda did spot the option to invite from the race start screen. I'll test and see if that is an option if it happens again, but even if so lets try and keep connected)
    - Everyone must be on discord. Ideally you should be able to both listen and talk (using push to talk) so you can follow and acknowledge instructions. At a minimum you must have Discord set up so you can follow the voice chat and then be able to respond via text chat in PC2.
    - Let's practice our pitstops, and remember the speed on the wheel display is in MPH. ;) Pitstop errors played way too big a role in the results for round 1, so here's to aiming for a round 2 with zero time penalties, missed stops, reversing in pitlane, running out of fuel and disqualifications.

See yall on Sunday. Shake n bake baby!

The calamity is what adds to the fun! Especially when Flouncy, who was leader by a country mile, cries out in anguish and despair at being disqualified... it will add to the annals of ASR racing history :lol:

Ah yes. That was legendary indeed. One day I'm sure Flouncy will be able to look back at it and laugh. But I'm pretty sure that day isn't today. Or tomorrow. Or anytime this year.

Hi all.

I found something odd while doing a bit of practice today. It looks like when you run "force default setups" it always starts you off with the stable setup, despite what it might say in the pit menu.

Scenario is:
- you join a server with force default.
- when you load into the pit menu it will say "Loose" in small text in the bottom of the Setup button.
- If you want to race the loose setup you then think it's all good and start racing.

But in this case you would be wrong. Despite saying loose I believe it's actually loaded the stable setup. So if you've done all your practice on loose the car will feel quite different.

It's a quick fix though. Actually go into the setup menu and load the loose setup, after which you're sorted.

This could explain a couple of instances where I've joined a race and the car felt totally different to practice...

Cheers
Veedub

Hi all,

Results for Round 2 below. Some good racing tonight. Much better on fuel strategies and the pit proces tonight and I think we're all starting to get the hang of it. Mostly unventful race other than when I finally had a chance to replicate that epic Webber/Alonso move in eau rouge, but totally stuffed it up. As a result Schroda (for a short while) played a flight sim rather than PC2. Sorry Schroda.

Congratulations to Veedub for taking pole and Flouncy for taking the double. Well done Founcy!

On to Round 3 at Donnington

Thanks for that Vic, shame I missed it! Was that Schroda or Shooter that got punted on lap two?

Cheers,

Stu

I watched the replay of that race after it happened and Veedub doesn't really have anywhere to go after he commits. They both give each other room in the first half of eau rouge and he pulls alongside and then in the second half Schroda either swings wide to take his usual line (unaware perhaps of the car next to him?) or perhaps runs ride? Veedub is stuck going around the outside and they collide.

I had no idea Veedub was there.
We came out of the 1st corner, Veedub pulled beside me on the RHS, and then I pulled slightly ahead I thought,.
As he dropped slightly back, he was out of view,
I was no longer getting and Proximity arrows.
So assumed I was clear, and was taking my normal line through Eu De Rouge when I felt the hit.
I was totally unaware he was there, and wondered what the hell had happened.
It's all good.

Do you use crew chief schroda? I find it quite a good addition to the proximity arrows. Also handy for telling me when I'm running out of fuel in these thirsty things.

Been using RS Dash for a good while.
Heard of Crew Chief.
Might have to give it a go

Yeah, it's all good. Eau rouge is not the best place for side by side, and with the benefit of hindsight I should have held back and made the move later.

All part of developing racecraft and building experience. Being able to make a move doesn't mean you should make a move, and I still find myself on the wrong end of that equation from time to time. Always found Velo's streams quite enlightening on this front. He could pass all of us with impetuity, but still was very considered in when and where to pass. Either way, lesson learnt. (Maybe ;) )

Having just rattled off a few practice laps I think that Donington is going to be a perfect example of this! It's narrow and there are many places to dive desperately on an opponent but not many sensible overtaking zones.
