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: Praga R1 @ Tor Poznan >>>> Zima Layout <<<<<

Note: This is an addon track. You can get it here:
http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/tor-poznań.6118/

The R1 is part of the Tripl3 DLC:

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. :)

Big thumbs up to Piotr for this eclectic combo :thumbsup:

I haven't driven Poznan since the good old GTL days.  Definately need to have a few laps on this one.

I think it GTL it was a different one "Kielce" also fun.:thumbsup:

Poznan first circulated as official add-on to Simbin's GTR Evo or Race series. Few years later there was great rF2 Poznan addon track made from scratch by feels3 modder*.

 

*) BTW, I read on local sim forum that feels3 was hired by sector 3, which resulted in quite an improved in RRE' track quality, so as you see you DB, you have new career path available if you get bored 3D-ing oil rigs; sattelites, IC missiles or whatever you do for a living-)

Didn´t like the car/track combo at first but after a few laps it is slowly growing on me. :)

Though the track looks fine and seems to be laser scanned it feels rather flat and without any good feedback given to my wheel?!

Just curious but is there any way to see the leaderboard out side of and separately to the game? i.e. something similar to LiveRacers but

for A.C. hotlapping.

Friends app does not have such functionality.

 

But there is other thing very widely used

Quick lap time from Frank. I don't think I have it in me. I have seen my delta showing half a sec couple of times (before I blew it next corner). Low 36 is best I can get on my best day... Will make another try on weekend.

I had another go and am very happy to get into the 1:37s.:yeah:

 

@Piotr I had a look at RSR but couldn't find any way to view something like our hotlapping results. All I could see was all the standard timing groups as always been.

@not_him_59 - I am not sure I understand, isn't RSR all about hotlappping and nothing else? :yep:

 

I meant if we would do our SYTYAF via rsr we could have always possibility to check laptimes, without starting AC

Ah! I thought you meant there was already something existing at RSR. Now I understand.:duh:

This challenge has now closed.

Congrats to @NimRud for pipping Piotr to the post.  

Thanks to all who posted times.  Well done guys.

@NimRud Would you like to choose the next combo? or nominate someone else?

Thx Darren, would very much like to go with the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 2017 on the Nordschleife Tourist layout.

The car is fast yet comfortable enough to concentrate on the track and doesn´t require any setup magic to keep it on the tarmac. ;)
