AC has an official in game app for comparing times with your Steam friends, so time to have a little fun!

You have 7 days to post your best time and see how you compare.

The next Challenge is:

Challenges > Hotlap: Mazda MX-7 Tuned @ VIR Full

Note: This is an addon track available here:
http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/virginia-international-raceway.11892/

Prerequisites:
Game Settings

Launcher settings for ABS and TC must be set to FACTORY.

(once on track you can change the settings if the car allows it)

Stability OFF, Fuel ON

Penalties must be enabled

Before you can start posting laps you need to do two things (if you haven't already)

1. Activate the in game Friends Leaderbord. To do this, take to the track and move your mouse to the right hand edge of the screen to activate the apps sidebar. From here select the Friends Leaderboard (it's near the bottom)

You should then see a leaderboard similar to this. You can drag it round to a suitable position.

Once the app is active it will log your laps and list those of your Steam Friends.

2. In order to get an accurate set of comparison of times you will need to add people to your friends list. You should be able to find all of us at the SimHQ Motorsports Steam Group. Just send out friend invites to those taking part and when they accept you can see their times on your leaderboard.

I have most people already, but if you want to enter, please add me as a friend first (if you haven't already), then post a time. I'll periodically post my leaderboard in the following post so you can all see who you need to befriend. Hopefully after a short while we'll all be bosom buddies.

Have Fun!!!

The challenge is open immediately and will expire exactly 7 days from the time of this post. :)

Something a little different car wise :)

I always think VIR is more fun with the non thoroughbred racers.  A lively little combo that should make you work for those lap times. :D

Good luck guys!

Oh and thanks to whichever reprobates made this great track :thumbsup:

Great little car! Unfortunately I dont have a H-shifter, so everytime I press my shifting pedal the game shifts (really) slow and I lose momentum. Anyoneknows this is fixeable?

Good luck with this one, fellas - I didn't spend a lot of time in it by any means, but I tooled around a bit in the RX-7 (tuned) and it was surprisingly a bit of a handful!  Pretty significant turbo lag, as I recall...

Oh what a day!  Finally, a SYTYF challenge at VIR.  Seriously, I've been waiting for this, for like, years. :)

I like this car.  This is the first time I've driven the tuned version (I know, but so many cars, so little time :| )

I feel a little faster with the, uh... LHD version:

My goal was to reach sub 2 minutes, finally achieved it by half a second today :) Don't think I can go faster then that (even though you should think you always can!)

Nice lap archii16.  Breaking the 2 minute mark seems mega-fast in this car.  

I can feel another 1 to 1.5 seconds in my runs.  If I can get thru South Bend at almost 100 mph and come out of Oak Tree in the meat of 3rd gear, both in the same lap...

 

One of the most amazing experiences of my life was riding with a pro driver, doing a 2:05 in traffic.  I was completely terrified while giggling like a maniac.

Thais challenge has now closed.  Final Leaderboard posted.

Congrats to Archii for topping the leadeboard convincingly yet again.  Thanks to everyone who posted times.  Shame i couldn't find time for more than an embarrassingly slow installation lap on my own track :P

@archii16 You know what to do :)

The F1-GTR gets my vote.  Thanks Archii.  I'll kick this off tomorrow :)

Gents, can I suggest holding off on that for a week (or two, max). Donington 1.14 is very close and is much improved, visually at least.

Sorry I didn't put in a lap to celebrate VIR being released, but you know how it is when you're busy :)

hehehe, i know that feeling :P

No worries.  We'll put this one on the back burner until the new version is ready.

@Brun Why don't you pick a combo to keep us going in the meantime :)
