Date is still unconfirmed, but I hope to see a race tomorrow evening. What about an Indy round?

I'm in as well (if the tinkering I'm currently doing doesn't screw up my Fedora installation. I'll try to control myself  :D).

20:00 GMT again? (DST starts this evening here, so I'd better be careful with that).

Three pipsqueaks, not bad. BJ / dreadnaut / Argammon / Rotoi?

Track is almost ready, will be uploaded soon. It's recommended to study the last third of the circuit: you have to find the correct braking point (after a short powergear section).

Not 100% sure, but I might be here for 20:00 GMT (in an hour). Didn't have time to try the track though ;D

Like I said in the chatroom: the only question is if BJ would be able to complete 10 laps or not.

Results!

1. CTG, 9 laps, 7:25.90
2. Chulk, 9 laps, 7:36.85
3. Duplode, 9 laps, 7:43.00
4. dreadnaut, 7 laps, 7:28.55 (+ 0:27.00 penalty time)

Fastest lap: CTG, 0:47.15 (lap 2)

(Laps measured at the dirt-asphalt boundary where the paths rejoin.)

---

One thing that caused me some doubts when compiling the results was that CTG and dreadnaut stopped their replays before 8:00.00. Before the race I had tacitly assumed that we had to drive the whole eight minutes, and stopping earlier meant retirement, as in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We did not, however, mention such a rule anywhere in these threads; not to say it would cause issues of its own - e.g. what is the point if you can cross the line at 7:30, stop the car and just wait for the time to run out? For those reasons I didn't account for it here. We probably should make that point clear before the next round, though.

Some comments:
  • I messed up in quite a few ways, mainly with a bad first lap (missed the one of the sharp turns at the beginning *and* didn't restart because I was freaking out after having lost half a minute starting the stopwatch...) and by only noticing the cut before the cork after five minutes. It seems I overshot the braking point one more time than Chulk or CTG, too.
  • Chulk: nice finishing touch in doing the final lap under 48s!
  • dreadnaut: you are on the right track - high speed cornering is the bane of every newbie; that is bound to improve as your feel for the limits of car and track gradually develops.
  • Counting the last three laps only: CTG-Duplode gap 01.00; CTG-Chulk gap 00.10  :o

Hadn't it been for that awful cork in lap 8 that took me out of rhythm for that part, I would have done the last 3 of them under 48 very likely, I was "in the zone".

Curious fact: there was only one of us whose 1st half of the race (not counting lap 1) was faster than his 2ยบ half, and it was CTG. And he was also the one who had the smallest difference between these two "sections"

CTG: 3:13,25 (laps 2-5) and 3:15,45 (laps 6-9). Diff: 2,20
CHU: 3:19,80 (laps 2-5) and 3:16,05 (laps 6-9). Diff: 3,75
DUP: 3:21,70 (laps 2-5) and 3:17,15 (laps 6-9). Diff: 4,55
DRE: 3:09,20 (laps 2-4) and 3:04,60 (laps 5-7). Diff: 4,60

One more thing I'd like to mention as I find it quite curious too. My 2 best laps are the only ones in which I didn't RH'ed...

Edit: Thanks for the stats, D!
