Thanks JJC. Can you edit the Matra's opening post to have link to race invitation for Sepang? Would help following things a bit.

Let it stay in 28 laps for now. There's 3 weeks before next race, so quite few things might happen before that. I'll keep you posted from possible car updates, etc.

IF I am still in charge, the race invitation will be published on thursday 5th of April.

My race report / blog update will be coming tonight.

Still so much to learn....

I have been into sim racing for some time now (started GPL back in 1998) but I have to admit thereīs still one or two tricks of the trade to be learnt.
The opening stages of the race were quite entertaining, circulating somewhere around 14th to 16th position, holding the opposition off, passing, trying to outbrake someone, sliding wide or just going round with that big grinn we all recognize so well.
But then come the pitstops. I had decided lap 14 would be a quite appropriate moment to dash into the pit to have things done that should be done during pitstops. Emphasis on the word "should"
However somewhat distracted by a number of cars that seriously intended to rob me of my position, I suddenly found myself past the pitlane entrance in lap 15 with an alarmingly flashing red light in the fuel gauge !
Had to slow down to reach the pits and consequently lost the minimal gap I had on the competition but luckily reached save habour. I read somewhere that it is recommended to at least practice one pitstop on any track just to be sure you know where to stop etc. But hey what can go wrong when youīve been into simracing the for such a long time ? Well quite a few things really. As I hadnīt practiced this particular exercise here, it took me I think five times reversing out off theĻpitlane and re-entering hoping that my sleeping/dead mechanic would jump back to life again.
Also, if you decide that itīs just fuel that you need, itīs wise to give all the other options a no. Right , I forgot that too. All in all it cost me about two laps on ,mind you, the last car on the grid. Needless to say I feel like and I admit

Isnīt this a shame for my teamie Petemate who has done such a great job so far. P&D are in desperate need of some extra points after two races already !

Oh dear, Oh dear, oh dear

Yet, I had great fun last night, wouldnīt have missed it for the world and thanks especially Nappe for taking over things and thanking the rest of the pack for great racing.

Cheers, (Senior) Dan

I haven't seen the replay yet, however i'm pretty sure i crashed into the car in front of me (Rob69 ??) at turn 5, i think that he had to suddenly brake to avoid a car which had spun. Whoever i bothered as a consequence of this, please accept my apologies.

As for the rest of the race and quali session... bufff, i spent hours strugglin' with the Alfa. I tried severals settings and lines, but none of them allowed me to bring my laptimes closer to other Alfa drivers ones. Starting from the back of the grid gained some positions trying to survive the first chaos laps. Soon after race status normalized, fell again to the back group due to my poor pace, my only target was finish the race. At lap 14 did my first refueling attempt, but as it was my first race at Sepang, i wasn't able to find the pit entrance 'cause i hadn't practice it before!
Came back to track and tried to save fuel in order to make a second attempt which resulted partly successful, as i ran out of fuel a few meters away of my pit crew

Despite feeling that i'm getting nowhere with this little italian, i won't give up!!

Not too bad a race for me, managed what I considered to be first non-alien .

Start was terrible, Mini isn't the fastest off the line & the long run to T1 meant I dropped from 12th on the grid to somewhere in the 20s before T1 . Had a clear run into T1 so recovered a few places on the brakes & survived the understandable door bashing in the first two tight corners. However all hell broke loose at T4, the Alfa on my left appearing to completely miss his braking point & ploughing into the BMW ahead which sent him careering through the pack .

Threaded my way through the carnage & was now back upto 12th. Battled with Jotapu, Yavvedo & Petemate for a few laps & when that had sorted itself out circulated about 8th until my pitstop. Decided not to change tyres which turned out to be a mistake as for the last 10 laps I was 2-3s a lap slower than earlier in the race. Was upto 6th after all the stops were completed but had to drive as hard as the car would let me over the last few laps as Petemate & Zsoca were closing in. Luckily the race finished before they caught me .

Congrats to Cale, Daz & John.

3 weeks until the next race !

Once again, I pasted this link to this thread earlier FOR A REASON. Now you two paid the price not reading it. (Or if you read it, then you just did not paid any attention to it.)

Let's look some history from Sepang, shall we?
2008: http://sefi.dyndns.org/~nappe1/NG-F1VC/round02_s.png
  • Mogget -> Out of fuel due not practicing pit stop.
  • Jevgen -> Out of fuel due autopitter and non working pitcrew.
  • Fillneuve -> Out of fuel due not watching laps.

2009: http://sefi.dyndns.org/~nappe1/NG-F1...Bremgarten.txt
Just take a look of DIV2 results list, do I need to say more?
Code:
18   22  Kettiyama                Lotus Ford Cortina       2    Out of fuel
20   24  cap7                     Mini Cooper S 1275       1    Out of fuel
24   28  GVRC Paolo               Alfa Romeo GTA           1    Out of fuel
25   29  Martin Palic             Lotus Ford Cortina       1    Out of fuel
2010: http://sefi.dyndns.org/~nappe1/NG-F1...nds_sepang-gp/
...Sepang being 3rd race of the season reduced this, but nevertheless, Epicname still ran out of fuel.

2011: Not a single documented out of fuel problems, but plenty of DNF's which did not write race reports so I expect few hiding in there.

It has been always hard to new comers to pit... I have never understood exactly what makes it so tedious task to practice it before races, but Sepang being second race and having not so obvious pit entrace, seems to collect quite few of these.

The doc I linked, has some other annoying things covered and tells also how to try to avoid them.

Hate to brake it to you at this stage - but once you're in the pit lane, you can get a virtual push from your pit crew - simply by keeping your foot on the gas pedal
That is a strange pit lane though, I practiced it a few times and still nearly missed it.

we'll see how long it takes me to destroy that with my classic Race Rage Seizures.

Anyways, I truly hope that Matra is okay. Any of the GVRC guys have more info what has happened?

After Melbourne disaster, finally get some action with Merc and it was combined fun&fear. I take quite good start and gained couple places, but tappinī cap and myself out in hairpin and dropped 15th. We have great battle 6 laps or so but that ruined my tires and he passed me. Pit stop with Merc took ages (120L + tyre change), but god dammit it was fun!!!! I canīt wait for next race....

Kimi

P.S This must be stupiest race report eva Whereīs replay btw...

Try here Kimi.....JJC posted a link in double quick time last night!


Race report....well, fiddled around with the gearing a bit in quali to find some more pace and ended up on the 2nd row. Was satisfied enough with that, but was also realistic enough to know that getting anywhere near Cale in his 911 was going to be hard work. given that he had got deep into the 21s....

Luckily, for once, he made a total horlicks of the start, and I jumped Cap and Jotapu off the line, passed Cale 200 yards later, going into turn 1 in 3rd. Was pressing John closely over the lap, but got unsighted slightly on a turn in point late on lap 1, hit the kerb too hard and nearly spun it, and it let Cale through. Had a grandstand seat as he attacked John hard, eventually forcing his way through in turn 4, John obliged to run wide so I sneaked by also.

Cale then had a go at DC, but nearly lost it into the hairpin, I inherited 2nd, but then spun in front of John at turn 2 about 4 laps later. Kept a watching brief on the battle up ahead, and overtook as first John and DC, then a few laps later Cale all pitted.

Had already been trying to save the tires for a few laps, knowing I didn't want to change. I had kind of worked on that being the only way to challenge Cale in any way, but he was too fast on the laps after pitting for my old tires, I came out after the stop only 4.8 down, ended the race about 20 seconds down, ah well, gave John food for thought at least....


I've watched the replay of lap 1, that is proper carnage! As an impartial observer, I would just make the point that it seems not many people in the pack were giving each other racing room at times there, not only is it a long race, but it's a large grid, and I'd have thought there was enough experience out there to get us all in the race for longer than 1 lap. Fingers crossed it's the only time this year it happens......although there are several terrible turn 1s coming up, and China is most definitely on that list....

Race Report

Qualifying
Good quali. The difference to Melbourne was quite dramatic as the track seemed very well suited to the 911. I was only a tenth away from my last years time in the Kadett, which was very surprising. And I do feel I could have gone quicker if needed. Especially on the first sector.


Race

Cale then had a go at DC, but nearly lost it into the hairpin...
Daz there very succesfully listed just about everything that went wrong with my race.

Got massive wheelspin on the start when shifting to second. Lost some places there. Then passing John... not very smooth. Trying to pass DC... overshoot the braking a bit and then it was all about the Porsche effect - trying to throw a hammer with the handle first - spun and dropped back to 4th. Luckily we had enough of a gap before Cap and Kimi so I didn't fall that far down the order.

At that point I was slightly worried about my chances of a podium finish. I might have enough pace to run down the leaders but passing wasn't going to be easy. And that's what I needed to do if they were pitting later than me. Thought about pitting early so I would have clear track and do the pass that way, but looking at the gaps behind, I would have been in heavy traffic when I came out from the pits.

First relief came when Daz spun on lap 8. Then I was able to close the gap to John and DC. They were sliding a lot so a tire change looked inevitable for them. I decided to take it easy and just cruise, not trying anything silly like before. (Sidenote: That KGC looks really great from behind! Especially the brake lights! )

Come lap 14, DC and John both went to the pits for some fresh rubber. In the process of cruising I had saved enough fuel to make an extra lap on the first stint. When I came out of the pits in front of Daz the race was pretty much in the bag if there were no problems.

Great race for me but I'm not too happy about the situation with the cars. With all my mistakes I was still nearly 20 seconds in front at the finish. I think I'll give it a couple of more races and if it still looks like this, maybe I have let the 911 go. The car is great, but maybe a bit too great.


Grats to Daz and John for the podium and big thanks to Nappe for taking over the organizing!

Hope everything is OK with Matra.

Very much a race of race of two halves here. First half was great fun, lots of action & spent most of the time looking in the mirror while at the same time trying to stay with DC. Leapfrogged DC in the pits and saw that I was about 17 seconds behind Daz. Thought I would at least be able to get close, given the fresh rubber but it wasn't to be. Cale got even further away and I was only able to reduce the gap to Daz by a few seconds before the finish

Tough one to call, it could have just been a great track for the 911. If you think that at Melbourne I was only a few seconds behind at the end, but didn't have to change tyres there. Also, you might find that you'll have some competition now that Daz has got a handle on his tyres! Next time I might just try holding you up for the entire race, rather than just half of it

Guys, wait until you see my unofficial alternative score tables after china. It's rather interesting. Especially Manufacturer's championship. Nissan of course has taken some lead... almost as much as Porsche is behind the mid pack and Ford being completely underdog with single driver, but other than that, It is really tightly packed up.

The two sub classes (over and below 2000cc) are for just plain statictics, but still fun to look in to.

EDIT: and blog update comes today.

Please could you change my team name to Morpheus Racing in the standings and any other data.

Mogget has abandoned me.

Nice. I do like Caps skins, especially as he gives that extra bit of shine by rendering them - wish I could get my head around doing that...

Given there are only 2 skins for the KGC110 I think it might be a good idea to have personal skins in use - I noticed there were two black ones on Wednesdy, Cap and whoever else was in the KGC110.

This was the case last season when each car had all it's default skins used up - for example I ran the Batmobile Pantera because Cosworth was using the stock #86 Pantera skin.

I'm sure we're all capable of downloading a couple of extra skins.

Couldn't wait three weeks , I fixed the system so that It will show now all the scores, but automatically drop two worst scores out after next race.

Here's your unofficial score tables, after Sepang:

P.S. I was wrong about the Porsche being a lot behind.... Yet, the places 2-4 are very close each other.

I'd love to, but wouldn't want 30+ people to download a skin just to satisfy my vanity Best to leave the decision to Matra/Nappe... hopefully a couple more KGC drivers will join

Steady on now! Not sure that the Skyline has the out and out pace needed to really push Cale in the 911, but it'll certainly be interesting to see how the different circuits play out in amongst the different cars for sure. And I do seem to have found a bit in the setup between Melbourne and Sepang, so for sure I'll be trying to put you and Cap on the back foot John......

So has anyone got any news on the whereabouts/state of health/state of mind of our old friend Ernst/Matra-Rancho? Getting a bit concerned that something untoward has happened to him, I dearly hope I am wrong in that assumption....


On a further note, just tried Shanghai for the first time in a year, what a pile of dung this track really is, I'd nearly forgotten....

Still nothing from Matra...
He has not visitted here since thursday 15th...
http://www.nogripracing.com/forum/member.php?u=3626

I really wonder what has happened...

As there is quite lot interest making personal skins, I will announce later on deadline when they need to be submitted. There will be a test race, probably week before Shanghai, where the new skins are tested and all new skin users need to be attend. Otherwise particular skin won't be accepted.

Accepted skins will be put in single skin pack to make downloads easier.

And as Matra being still away, reading race invitations becomes really important, as I can't edit the Matra's posts to reflect download changes.

Just a small note on the personal skins thing - I know I kicked this off by suggesting the KGC110 drivers should use a skin each, preferably a different one each, as there are only 2 skins...

...but I didn't mean for everyone, just what we did last year - that those cars with more drivers than skins get more skins one way or another.

But if everyone is to be allowed personal skins I have a "classic" skin I'd like to use on the 911S, if I can find a template for it...

I wonder what has happened to Matra though?

It does not matter how many skins I need to add to skinpack, If I have to do it in any.

However, I am not willing to start fixing peoples skins, so What I want to see is complete working standalone skins (means packed correctly as any quality skin you can now download), which have everything needed in place. If something is missing, I will inform the submitter and unless he delivers fixed version before deadline, skin will not be added.

If there's problem in test race (or skin owner does not show up in the race), those skins are removed from final skinpack and they are not allowed to be used.

So, this is merely ment for the guys knowing what they do.

Well in that case I'll add a 911S skin to use. It's a "classic".

Don't worry I know what I'm doing, as I'm sure you know.

Go faster stripes are all well and good, but some of us (names withheld for legal reasons) could do with some go slower stripes - painted backwards maybe

NOTICE!
Submit deadline for personal skins is 2nd of April, 2012.


Send them zipped to email address: lasse(dot)karkkainen(at)gmail(dot)com and use "F1 Venue 2012 Skin: <driver name>" as subject. If both of your team members have personal skins, you can also zip both team members skins to same package.

Notes about making skins:
DO NOT USE already existing skin number, but create new one. So, no already in series existing skin replacement. All skins will be checked for possible physics cheats and if any found without good explanation, will cause skin not qualify and also a next race automatic DQ. (so be careful when editing .car file. best idea is just change the needed lines to make it as new skin.)

Test race will be 4th of April. Race will be small sprint race on track which is announced later, so it won't prevent having WNR race in same evening.

A buddy of Woz and myself, Nescafe, is working on a skin for our team. I hope it will be ready for next update.

Next update for the skins is after bahrain, when there's another 3 weeks break.

KAD Mini is really close having ver 2.0 out before test session as well. Depends how late I am able to push tonight. New version fixes all graphical bugs (thanks to Tokin and motorfx) previous ones had and thanks to motorfx, includes more skins that previous one.


The rumoured KAD Works spec 5 speed gearbox is still in works, so it won't happen before spain...
