    GPL was sure the trend setter. GPL got so many things just right. So many racing games have come and gone but GPL keeps on keeping on. Anyways back to rf2. I have a think about the mayhem you mentioned (20,000) combinations. Keep everything going for sure but what if only ISI released tracks and cars were used for specific challenge. GPL had just 11 tracks and the 7 cars (21 cars with f2 and f3), yet with just that combination it still set standards that have yet to be surpassed. Well it's only a thought but maybe something along those lines might be possible with something for everyone.
    Regards

    I hear ya, Will. Much of GPL's fascination lay in the (considering todays standards) content limitations, and just think of how much influence the old Nurby Ring had on your handicap... we had many discussions about including this track in the overall calculation.

    It's quite likely we'll include the Nordschleife in the "ISI Classic" challenge at some point, but I have no idea which version we'll be using.

    Cheers, Uwe

    Track mappings have been added. Similar to car mappings, these objects allow us to map tracks which are marginally different to others to a single track, reducing the amount of track clutter in the database.

    I just created a mapping for the upcoming PORTUGAL_SCES track version (which adds pit boxes and removes the headlights DQ) to ISI's original PORTUGAL_GP course.

    Let me know if other tracks could do with a mapping.

    All the best,

    Uwe

    Just a quick note.
    I noticed in the car entry in rf2rank there is a double entry.
    ISI Historics F3 / EVE_F3

    Hi folks,

    we'll add a new reference benchmark time to the ISI Classic challenge over the weekend, it's going to be Bathurst in the C6R (this track / car combo is an absolute blast ;))

    I'll recalculate the handicaps and post here once we've added the benchmark time including a setup and hotlap replay for download.

    Cheers, Uwe

    Never used rF2rank but that is tempting. We ran a public server yesterday and the times went down into the 2.06s already :)

    Thanks very much to our rFactor2's very own "Stig" "hexagramme" we now have another reference lap for the "ISI Classic" challenge, featuring the brand new Corvette C6R GT2 @ Maniak's fantastic "Bathurst" version.

    Hexagramme managed a whopping 2:06.856 around this demanding circuit, "going negative" handicap-wise for me just moved about 5 seconds further away ;)

    Thanks to "hexagramme" for also providing the setup he used and a replay of his hotlap, both are available for download over at

    http://rf2.gplrank.info/

    The handicap ranking has also been updated, to make sure to re-upload your lap times in order to calculate your new handicap.

    All the best,

    Uwe

    Huh, never knew I did that, and I'm not there anymore if I was. Anyway, I have discovered a big issue, although I'm not sure what can really be done about it. It appears that laps driven by the AI count as valid laps. One time I put my car on AI control and let if run several laps to build up rubber, and accedently impoved my WR by 0.3 seconds lol. I already had WR anyway, but that still isn't right. Also, I see that Gilles Buffualt has a 1:03 at sebring in the GTR GT1. That has to be a mistake lol.

    Yep indeed it is (AI laps registering), but atm there's nothing that can be done about except for bugging the devs. I'll commence doing so shortly ;)

    Cheers, Uwe

    Hello Uwe :)
    I think there's some missing or renamed content:
    2015 Titan StockCar, 2015 Edgar GT StockCar
    Nordschleife Tourist Summer is now NORDSCHLEIFE2_TOURIST_SUMMER
    Nordschleife Tourist Fall is now NORDSCHLEIFE2_TOURIST_AUTUMN

    Thank you

    Cosimo Streppone has a 02:06.488 posted at Nordschliefe 24hr in the indycar. Please remove this, becuase unless he was driving a year model 2346 indycar powered by nuclear fusion, it is obviously a mistake of some sort lol.

    Also, please add mountain peak oval, seems to be missing.

    I have a suggestion. I would like to have a way to link to a video for a laptime on rf2Rank.

    It could look like this

    Driver Country Car Type Date Laptime Video Buddy

    By default, under video it could say "Add video" or something as a clickable link, and click that link to add link to video. Would be nice.

    Yes, the scenery is different, but the road is the same.

    I have some feedback for this great and essential tool.
    Would like to see:

    1. Click on My Laps link and be able to view lap times by date uploaded
    2. URD EGT Mod would be good to show lap times of individual cars: Ferrucio, Bayro, Darche, Arthur Merlin, Corvette
    3. Add to list RENAULT MEGANE WORLD TROPHY MOD V1.01 http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/renault-megane-world-trophy-mod-v1-01.7623/

    Keep up the good work - this has injected a great element to rF2 experience

    I think that is for the double entry in the ISI filter.

    What needs to be fixed is the "Fast F3" mod times are still validated, which kind of makes the whole F3 section redundant.

    Which also infers to me it may be possible for a different modded car to do the same in another class.
