Report Time! 

 

Switched to the basic set-up I had posted in this forum last week. It mean't sacrificing acceleration out of some corners. But it kept the car stable and no worried about tyres or fuel for the race.

 

Qualifying went much better than expected. Considering how slow I was driving during testing earlier in the day. I was still off the pace of where I felt I should have been. But it was good enough for a good lap in clean air. I went wide on the first corner at my first attempt though. SO had to scrap that. Ran a few more laps to burn off some fuel and put fresh tyres on. Went for another and bumped myself up to 3rd. Knew I could go a lot quicker as I wasn't even in the 29's yet. Another fresh set of tyres and a did a slower lap. So another fresh set. Made a mistake but improved my time. Now up to second on the grid. Was on for a better lap on my next attempt. But got held p by traffic. So that was me. Happy with 2nd considering my afternoon pace.

 

Race time.................

 

Omg another awful start off the line. Wishing it was Rolling Starts now. I didn't get the wheel spin I had last week. The initial drive was good. But then it just bogged right now. Everyone passing me. From 2nd to 6th. I got a slight tap on entry to first corner which unsettled me. But quickly got back into the race.

 

Things just got a bit more frustrating after that. Felt I was much quicker than the few cars ahead of me. I had a few different lines that made me faster in the bits others were slower. But I couldn't take advantage of this. So was getting slowed down. And I couldn't do much in the slipstream as my car was slow on the straights because of how it was geared. And I ended up getting a penalty when I bumped into driver infront as I was accelerating and they were braking. I did brake. But still 10 secs. Seemed a bit harsh. I didn't bother fighting off my teammate. So got some off my penalty off and was now down in 7th.

 

Found it was easy to shave off a second or so each lap at the hairpin. So got back up to pace. Quickly caught up to the cars ahead. Got past a few times. But because of the above issues. I quickly lost position again. Made pitstops at end of lap 5. Made a pass back up to 6th and broke clear. Think I got up to 5th at one point. But again. Slow car on the straights. Maybe I should have been more aggressive in other parts of the track.

 

Made second pit stop at end of lap 10. Then the madness happened up ahead. And found myself 4th place some how. Later finding out there was some drama with lapping cars. So I was now looking at a potential 2nd or 3rd place. The leader was well clear. But I made a mistake on lap 11 and got another penalty that I had to get rid off. Which pretty much confirmed my 4th place. Which is a good result considering my awful start and pace earlier in the day. Yay for a bit of luck.

 

Need to work on my starts for next week. The good news is set-up already seems to be good for Interlagos. So just a few tweaks needed.

 

Thanks again to everyone for the race. It was good to have all 12 that signed up, on the grid for this one.

  1. Well what can I say about last nights race,sometimes I should really read what I'm lookin at?did some race testing in the week but I soon found out the i had been running at the wrong track(seaside)so anyways also,after finding that my setup had gone had to quickly redo it to get some quick laps in.making it to 5th place for the start of the race.got a great start making it up to 3rd but got a 10 sec pen at the the 2nd corner for the slightest of taps on @gus72,but didn't slow as to keep up the top 2,stayed with gus and tassie pitting on lap 5 and 10,came out of the pits in 2nd just in front of gus but had to let him past as i messed up a corner.i was having a really great race with gus up until we came up on @skells22,I really don't know what happened but gus went to the right to pass but got slowed so I went to pass on the left which I did with no problem,but the next thing I know is I get tw?ted off track by skells and guys,I don't know what happened but to say the least to I was not happy.

Very brief race report from last week, and a heads up.

 

Race report.

Qualy went okay.

Got a decent first effort in, and went looking to improve.

But it didn't happen.

Between traffic limiting my opportunities, and my own errors pushing too hard when I did have an opportunity, qualy was over with no improvement.

 

The race went smooth for me.

Decent get away from the line and held the lead into turn 1.

From there it was steady as she goes.

Struggled with tyre wear the first stint, as I did the week before, so I'm not sure what's happening there.

But I had a no errors race, was able to keep the other guys behind, and no issues to report.  

 

 

I'll be on soonish/later to test out my alternate internet option to see how it goes.

So if you are looking to do a bit of practice or tuning there's a good chance I'll be around.

Woohoo! Race 3 this evening. Hopefully I can get off the line without losing more 4 places 

 

We have an odd number of laps for the race. So that makes race strategy more interesting.

 

And I think we don't have Daz this evening. So if a reserve driver has an Aston. Then come forward and jump in.

 

There's a also a space or two for any viewers that wish to watch from the lobby. or as always, you can tune in to my stream. And see the race from my perspective.

 

Cyaz all later.

Doooh.

Short shifting overall saves more fuel than using fuel mapping think too.
