Driver briefing is being sent within 30 mins, mod update in less than 60
Mod updated, small fix to a few teams and drivers + change on Porsche BOP (see 2nd post).
Replay linked in first post.
I didnt get participation points for the sebring race, while I did participate.
Are we gonna start at the Porsche curves like in VEC for the formation lap?
That is my plan yes.
Not sure about other cars, but 720s' top gear will be too short for the race at Le Mans. Is there something that could be done about that?
Yes, the 720s hits revlimiter ~250m/~3 sec before the braking zone, but it hits that rev limiter at 289.5km/h
Meanwhile BMWs max top speed with all possible top speed tweaks applied is 285.9km/h and when 720s hits rev limiter, BMW is still at 283.8km/h, thats a maximum of 5.7km/h and roughly 0.250s per straight advantage to 720s. So cheer up.
I was mostly thinking about overtaking possibilities. If a McLaren tries to overtake another McLaren it will end up being very very difficult if everyone is stuck on the rev limiter
I've had this in a Tatuus race on sao paulo, and it's not that bad. You just get overlap before the braking point and then are in the limiter until you get to the braking point, where the overlap doesn't change. Then it's just a matter of who dares braking the latest. And even then LeMans has straight after straight and hard braking, so it's quite easy to compromise your turn in so you can get a better exit, which makes you get past the other person way before hitting the limiter.
Yes I agree Jimmi should increase Mclarens drag to fix this dangerous issue.
Let's shorten BMW's top gear so that everyone hits the rev limiter
Finally a McLaren is better than the BMW after 5 rounds and now cuz everyone bitches bout it, it needs a nerf.. lel
Can we get details about the race start?
I would assume you could have guessed this quite easy.
VEC version of this track allows gridding before the Porsche curves, meaning leader can go between last turn and s/f line - but what you can use this for now i´m not sure. And you asked about when its in workshop - monday.
We hit the limiter at 287 as well.
612 - R van Buren is following P Peev and J Brzezinski, Brzezinski brakes earlier than what van Buren expect and is sent off track
Penalty - R van Buren - AC; DT
338 - K van Dooren goes to the right, bumping into N Pinto and goes off
Make sure you are free when moving lane
347 - J Simoncic moves under braking
Infraction - J Simoncic - Blocking
473 - J Brzenzinski brakes later and dives from 5 car lengths back up beside B Millan and runs him off track, but waits and no one loses positions
Infraction - J Brzenzinski - AC
1324 - J Brzenzinski brakes late and is not able to get side by side by turn in, causing mild contact
Penalty - J Brzenzinski - AC; DT
2880 - P Peev turns into T1 earlier and appears to prevent a pass by B Millan, Millan is sent off track
Penalty - P Peev - AC; DT
Two notes apparently is hard to understand:
6.2 Entering a turn, the passing driver must at least get their front wheels even with the rear wheels of the car they are passing before the point of turn-in, to have earned the right to a lane. At this point the driver being passed is responsible to leave a lane open.
6.3 Blocking is not allowed for any reason. Blocking is defined as altering the race line in reaction to another driver in an attempt to prevent a pass. When exiting a turn, pick a line and stay there. Blocking will be penalized.
Drivers briefing will be sent out shortly
Thank you for the amazing season!
