    Australian Club Event - Wed/Thurs 5/6 August 2015

    This week we are combing the car classes so that the vehicles we race with on Wednesday will be the same as the ones for Thursday. This is so you can get more comfortable with your chosen vehicle and hopefully results in closer racing I think Essteedee came up with this suggestion and i think it's great.

    Wed/Thurs race:
    Wed will be the 2x12 lap race event, 2nd race being reverse grid.
    Wednesday track - Hockenheim GP.
    One mandatory pitstop per race. You can choose to just do fuel or tyres also if you wish.

    Thurs will be the semi-endure race again. The laps will be to average out a race time of one hour.
    Thursday track - Watkins Glen GP

    Time:
    If you're working late and can't make the time, let me know and we could shift the start back half an hour.
    Lobby will open at 9:00pm, Event starts at 9:15pm with a 15 minute qualifying time, Race start at 9:30pm, AEST GMT+10.
    Same for both nights.

    Assists:
    All assist will be allowed, use whichever ones you want/need.

    Tyre wear:
    X7

    Car class:
    I'm hearing some love for the GT4's. Is everyone ok with this?

    Also, I would love to start introducing a little points system for the results but also don't want to take away the fun of the game. We can try it and if we are taking it all too seriously we can always drop it.

    I think x7 tyre wear is better for the 12 lappers actually. IMO you have to create a decision about tyres cos the pit stop is so long. If tyres last 10'laps with 6x tyre wear on average, then it doesn't pay to make a 20s change tyre pitstop cos you don't lose 10s a lap.

    Make it 7x and all of a sudden you need to last maybe 4 laps on crap tyres so it makes it a compelling decision. Can the fresher tyres run you down or can you make it last with crap tyres. Or do you run on soft tyres for 2x 6lap stints ? Or do you run hards for 8 laps and then run softs for 4 laps and make a late charge...If one decision is obviously better than the other then it's not a true variable. Just MO.

    Let's mix it up with weather, random or otherwise. Progressive times etc. the more variability the better.

    Gt4 seems to be a great balance between speed and balance, but I'm open to anything other than open wheelers.

    The more pitstops the better I say.

    They're fantastic and add to the game immeasurably./S*







    *Guess I should add this to my post so you know I'm being sarcastic.

    Personally I'm happy with any car but gt4 does seem to be something that everybody can handle easily which means more people racing/enjoying themselves which is what we all want.
    Not fussed with tyre wear also but x7 would make that pit stop more important and interesting.

    I think once the track is announced the amount of laps should also be announced with it so people can get to work with their strategies and also we need to know before the race weather mechanical failures or damage is on.

    Not sure how well the dynamic weather works on this game.

    Keep the x6 (or maybe x7 as Rooz suggests). I did the whole Donnington reverse grid race on the same set of soft tires and didn't really feel like I was losing that much time. I was also running on default setup, so, I was doing 1'12's and was a full 2 secs per lap slower than you and Rooz, but I got to the end and held 2nd place. I think at x6 tire wear you can easily do a full 12-lapper on Mediums and not have to change tires.

    Alright we will bump up the tyre wear to x7

    From reading the above people like the GT4's, I like them and the racing it gives I've got a track in mind which will show the differences in each vehicle as well. Do u go a power car or one good with the corners?? (And not one that just looks good ey essteedee lol)

    When do you guys want to know the tracks? Is 24 hours before the race ok? Or do you want a schedule done up, I'm happy to do either.
