So You Think You're Fast? F1 Hotlap Challenge: Mercedes AMG GT3 @ Barcelona GP

Recommended Posts

F1 Hotlap.png

Prior to each F1 race we will hotlap the same track as the real life drivers to see how we compare.  TImes will be recorded using the in game steam friends leaderboard.

Each challenge will run until Midnight GMT on the Sunday of the race.  The next challenge will start on the following Monday.  Thanks to Ahmad for the great idea :thumbsup:

The next Challenge is:

Challenges > Hotlap: Mercedes AMG GT3 (NOT SLS) @ Barcelona GP

This Challenge is open immediately and will expire Midnight GMT on the 14th May

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rules and Requirements:

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)

full-19230-51130-full_19230_48487_ac_cha

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

full-19230-51131-full_19230_48488_ac_cha

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 midnight GMT on the 14th May

Something a little different for Barcelona :)

Time to release your inner Burnd and see what we can do with the Safety Car (or as close as we can get with AC).

Looks like we have run this combo before as quite a few times on the board already.  Let's see who can improve.  Good luck guys!!

We run in it October 2016. Taking out F1s and Caymans it was not further than 6 SYTYAFs ago.

Is AC short of content for fresh combinations? :neaner:

Had a little bimble about this morning. A bit daunting to see Archii already at the top, I would be happy to get a sub 1.50. I wonder how the tyre model changes would affect lap times compared too back then. Are they faster or slower or just different?

Don't let it daunt you, its my old time. Not sure whether its faster or slower, the old tire model. Just for the sake of the commuinty, I won't do SYTYF anymore after this edition

Edit; F1 hotlap challenge with a GT3? :P

Noone is suggesting you shouldn't participate Archii, it certainly won't help the community if people don't take part in events. I had to miss the last race series entirely due to work and study commitments, when I logged back in a couple of weeks ago I found that the series had been cancelled. Participation is everything that holds communities together.

Exactly. Just make a gentelmens agreement with rest of us that from now on you always do the hotlaps with:

a. full tank of fuel

b. hardest tyre available

Maybe this will gives us more hope to get within 1 second of your laptimes :neaner:

 

BTW - I lost my AC documents forlder so I am starting to do my my PBs from empty page again.
