Touch wood looks like I back up and running after yesterday forced no show as I had a quick check abd ecerything seems to be back to normal
It's that time of the week again. Race 7 of the OPC Racing Championship. 33 laps of Blue Moon Bay. A tri-corner oval race. Should be interesting.
I'm sure a lot of you are expecting carnage. But it can be a clean and competitive race if you choose it to be.
Oval racing is completely different from circuit racing. You'll find yourself in close contact with cars all around you for periods of time. So the driver and spacial awareness needs to be high.
There's a few things to keep in mind.........
And on those notes. I'll see you all this evening. Keep it clean people
Ran a practice race earlier to get a feel for the track.
28 minutes with one crash, no idea where that stands.
Was surprised at the fuel usage Tbf.
This is something you cannot really practice well in Custom Race Settings.
I had a go last night, and it's impossible to get a proper feel of how this Race will run. You need a One Make Custom Race. Then you can practice Drafting at least and even then, with the AI... that ain't going to pan out well. This is a type of race that needs a Lobby and a huge amount of practice together. I've seen it all through my days when Nascar driving, it takes a lot of skill and judgement to race Ovals successfully.
The Nascar type of racing is Alien to a lot of drivers, hence why GT Mode does not work well when these tracks appear. I don't even run these races myself as it's just pointless wrecks. And I've so much experience with this type of race.@el-ve
Yeah I wanted to know how fast the car could take the corners to hopefully avoid hitting the back of someone or the wall.
Guess we’ll find out in a few hours 😬@S2N-Ava
Drafting around the corners will catch people out, more speed and less grip under Aero.. I don't think it will end pretty tonight. You can't practice Drafting with the AI Cars. This is something that comes from racing together.
I'm really thinking of sitting this one out. All I can vision is Carnage.@el-ve
If it gets that bad we’ll just turn it into destruction derby for one night@S2N-Ava
I've a Lobby open now and I'm more concerned with writing on the Forum than driving.... that speaks volumes in my mindset LOL@el-ve
I’ve got to put the daughter to bed now but should be able to hopefully join a lobby pre race this week.@S2N-Ava
Only just shut mine down. Psml@PhoeniX-J-five
The daughter is just dropping off so should be on soon. Will probably have to FR you to see the room as I couldn’t before.@PhoeniX-J-five
Yup, think I sent one ages ago but it denied me.
Itsnotmyname has set one up anyway so jumping in there@el-ve
Ah that’ll be my privacy settings. Had it set like that from playing too much destiny and getting loads when in the tower@PhoeniX-J-five
I'll be racing for MightyYogi tonight even though im not liking this track much.
There are no excuses for that kind of driving so i'm out.
1. GT-Ava #29
1. skells22 car 22
2. PhoeniX-J-five #5
I hit the wall 1st @smokey019 then you hit me from behind while i was recovering from hitting wall
Besides hitting you I got in the way of other drivers when the tyres were gone who then hit my car because they probably weren’t expecting it to be sitting stationary on the track.
