  1. Last 30 mins of the Nurburgring 24hr was epic. Just prior to the start of this clip they were discussing that there had recently been a downpour at Spa, and were speculating over how long it might take to reach the Eifel mountains...
  2. German GT Cup Series: Signup & Car Selection

    Shame about the cancellation, surprising after the decent series last year. I didn't sign up on account of knowing that'd I'd definitely be away for two events. Didn't think I'd be able to make yesterday until the day before.
  3. Update 1.12 - includes timed races

    - Added online Timed Races (with and without additional lap) I read 'additional lap' as formation lap, assuming the timer would start after completing the first lap. It did cross my mind that in the previous series we did one race with a standing start and then rolling starts for the other two. I'd bet my bottom dollar that won't be possible without restarting the server.
  4. Update 1.12 - includes timed races

    Maybe we should have a trial run of this new timed race thing before the upcoming series?
  5. AUDI QUATTRO S1 E2 Introduced back in 1984, the Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 revolutionized rallying. Just like the other manufacturers, Audi used the lenient homologation requirements to create a new rally car. All the car maker needed for homologation was a production run of a mere 200 cars. Blomqvist's spectacular, sideways driving style suited the Sport quattro perfectly. By flicking the tail out, the Swede overcame the natural understeer of the nose-heavy Audi. He won five of the twelve rounds and was crowned the 1984 World Champion. Mikkola and Roehrl also won a round, which was enough to clinch the constructor's trophy. HIGHLANDS LAYOUTS The perfect track doesn’t exist. That’s why we created one. Highlands - The original layout, 8152 meters long, filled with fast flowing path with curves and several jumps. Highlands Long - An extension of the original layout, 12191 meters long and has all the characteristics of the original layout. This layout features some slower curves, a fast series of left and right turns, after a passage between rocks and the distinctive 3km long "Cabhag straight" Highlands Drift - A configuration born to create long powerslides with supercars and hypercars. At 5167 meters long, this layout features long, flat and smooth curves, perfect for holding a constant power slide. The "tower lùb", guards the surroundings at the top of the hill. Highlands Short - The shortest configuration, only 1714 meters, but based entirely inside the city. Incredibly intense and requires the concentration of a pro. All four layouts share the same starting positions and pit lane, as well as the first corner and final 2 corners.

  6. Nice work. I got under 6:30 with a far from clean lap, but doubt I could find another three seconds.
  7. Think I lowered the wing a couple of clicks. Other than that, no changes. Kept an eye on tyre temps but they seem fine with the defaults.
  8. What Are These...

    Those thing are usually associate with apps, but I guess if you're making videos they'll be turned off anyway. My guess is they're associated with the 'onboard settings' so it might be worth checking if that's open somehow.
  9. OSW ordered

    Sent an email to Heusinkveld asking when their Pro pedals will be available again. For the sake of my bank balance I hope Thrustmaster get back to me about the £13 adapter first.
  10. OSW ordered

    OSW ordered! Cold out here today so figured I'd just stay indoors and spend all my money. Went for the pre-built small mige from sim-pli.city, accompanied by a Sparco P300 (had to match my seat) and a C20M (plus alt. magnets) from Martin Ascher. Decided not to bother with a quick release, will cross that bridge when i come to it if necessary. Hopefully I should have it all by next Saturday. I do have one unfortunate problem however. For the time being at least I'm gonna keep using the T500 pedals and after ordering the above, remembered I needed the adapter to use them standalone. Went to Thrustmaster website... 'out of stock'. Can I find anywhere else in the whole of Europe which has them? No. Bummer. Knew Leo Bodnar made one for Logitech pedals, but does look like there's owt for this situation. So it looks like I'll be faced with having to leave the T500 wheel connected which will be a bit of a pain. Sent a message to Thrustmaster so hopefully have news from them soon, otherwise I'll be eyeing up new pedals as well.
  11. Bit of a late reply, but there are software options for mapping keys to button presses. Check out xpadder or joy2key, they're two of the more popular ones. The former is my preference.
  12. OSW ordered

    I dropped a line to Ollie last week. Getting very tempted, might be an early xmas present to myself. Total cost inc wheel and button plate/paddles is a bit frightening tho, I must be mad!
  13. Donington 1.14 now available so that combo with the McLaren F1 GTR is good to go. I might even have time to participate again now
  14. KTM X-Bow @ VIR Full this Sunday 9th @ 1600GMT

    Apologies for not making it. Was determined to get the new Donington update released over the weekend, and although I'd hoped to get it out the door in time for a bit of practice and some racing it was never likely to happen.
  15. Sorry, been so preoccupied I completely forgot about this. Mercedes AMG GT3 (not the SLS) at Barcelona GP.
