New Season Possibilities
« on: September 21, 2018, 11:38:AM »
I'm looking forward to another great season of racing.
We have already looked at a lot of cars. The BMW 2002 Stanceworks for example is a lot of fun.
Although I missed the race, I tried the RS01 today and it's a beast. I love that engine noise.

We still have a few to try out.
The notoriously awful Formula C. Let's hope that SMS have sorted this one.
The Lotus 49c. A personal favourite.

If anyone else has any ideas about what they want to try, now is the time to let us know.

Start pitching people!
Optimists live longer than pessimists.
Turns out they're both right.

2002 stanceworks gets my vote, also we did the V6 Megane Trophy [MTRO] not the R.S. 01 Trophy [RS01] isnt that just a gt3 car but in its own league?
To many options
OPEN WHEELER:
Formula A [FA]
Formula Renault 3.5 [FR35]
Lotus Type 98T Renault Turbo [VF1]

TIN TOP:
V6 Megane Trophy [MTRO]
V8 Supercars [V8SC]
BMW M1 Procar [GR.4]
BMW M3 Sport Evo [GR.A]
Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 [GR.A]
Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution 2 DTM [GR.A]
Caterham SP/300.R [TKDB]
Radical SR3-RS [TKDB]
Mercedes-Benz CLK-LM [GT1]
Ferrari F40 LM [GTO]
BMW 320 Turbo [GR.5]
2002 Audi R8 (LMP900) [LMP9]
Ford RS200 Evolution [GR.B]
I also love the look of the Mercedes-Benz Sauber C9 Mercedes-Benz [GRPC] its just a biotch to drive  :steeringwheel:

Letís just get started I say.

Regulars will join anyway more or less. Attracting new people will be hard in any car now. Simply most people want to run gt3 or e.

Iíll drive anything. From my personal perspective I wouldnít mind doing the single seater as the second race. Itís been a while since Iíve done any really. However Iím happy to fit in with everyone else.

Tin tops - Grp a and c cars are popular - the cars arenít balanced though so pick a car for the champ. They would potentially attract new drivers.

For good close racing Stanceworks or Escorts are both great. Caterham is also good.

Personally I really donít care what I race. Iíd rather see everyone who joins enjoy the racing and having someone to race with rather than lapping the whole race alone + grow the entry list. In reality both things donít go hand in hand.

What I would say is the race format should change to 15 - 20 min Q tops.

Of all the open wheels we have tried I feel the FR3.5 and the Indycar suits my style; they feel silky smooth to me.  If we choose the Indycar we can just use the America tracks as from the promotional stand point.  The Lotus 98T was fine as a car but it felt like the differential settings were already at more of a lock up axle than open differential; hopefully I am making sense.  The FA felt like it was moving a little more in the middle of the turn but was controllable.  I probably will vote the Indycar as my top choice.


For the tin tops, I do not really mind what we choose since I really do bad in most of them compare to the whole group but if I had a choice I could go for the Megan we used last; was it the V6 or something else?  Ha, that shows how much I know about all the cars and classes.  Anyway, the Megane felt reminiscent of the Lotus 25 but with tin top; the back end really gets loose but nicely controllable unless you overdo it with entry speed. 


I like the manual pit but if it still disqualifies you at the first instance of pit speed violation I guess is out of consideration.  How do you feel about bringing in a safety car ?

The safety car would be a good addition if its implemented right. There was a few races last season where it would of helped me from being 1-2 laps down. Also this racing into the pits at full speed needs to be sorted out. Make it manual control to stop people just flying in without penalty. The only problem would be everyone would need a pit limiter button mapped.

Iíve tried the formula C and it is very tail happy like it has caster wheels on the rear. Its almost like you have to drive it like the track is wet. This could be interesting as it is very hard to drive. I also looked at the 49C and Iím not a fan lots of under steer you have slow right down or wait a week for the front to grip. The lotus 98T has a massive advantage when used with TC as it reduces engine wear by about 40%.
So I assume the real options are FA , INDY or FR35 again?,

Would the stancework work ok with the Indycar, American tracks idea with the long straights? Or would this mean running two separate championships with different track lists this time?

Also i still think a Formula A with an official track list with a 40 min race time and a 911 GT3 20 min race as the tin top car like in real life would be a nice touch :13: monaco in the wet with the 911 and FA would be pretty intense .

On the subject of the 2002 Stanceworks, jod and I did a few tests last night. We tried Daytona Road Course, Texas Speedway Road Course and COTA. They work well with this car. My initial fears were that the tracks would be too long but they work just fine.

Hello everyone, We are working on posting soon the information for the upcoming season which will include the Indycar and the BMW Stanceworks.  The tracks will be all American and and are hoping to include an hour of Indycar at Indianapolis; all other tracks will be our usual 30 minutes length.  We are hoping to start on Oct 25th or at the latest on Nov 1st; either way the Indianapolis will be the 5th Round while making the season either 8 or 9 rounds.  The season will be done before the 2 Holiday weeks of Christmas and New Years.  We are looking to include a safety car procedure so look at the rules document for more information.  Please make sure to read the safety car procedures before asking questions.
