Is it only me or does this track have something special that makes you fall in a... in a.. well let's say "driver's trance" after 30 minutes or so?
At the start everything works as usual, e.g. I concentrate on certain corners and locations, take care of the correct gears etc., but later I fall into mode where I can drive fully automatically without the slightest need to concentrate, I just flow down the track, not knowing what I do, it's an indescribable and awesome feeling. It's like flying over the road, only listening to the hypnotizing hum of the engine on different RPM's. Suddenly the next 5 kilometers have passed and I realize: Wow, I do not remember driving those kilometers and what's worse: I drive better than when I try to concentrate :shock: Posted Image

Btw, what is your favourite car/mod for this track? I am using the '65 Brabham BT7 right now and it is an excellent car for this track. But I wondered what the next bigger step in cars should be...

Yep, i get the same kind of sensation. No need to think or plan, it's like driving in automatic. Most of the steering is done with the accellerator pedal. Its a beauty of a track.
All i need is a co-pilot with track notes like in WRC to give me the heads up for the "tricky corners"

I am using the ferrari 65 because it has great gripp and appart from the straights towards the end of the lap most of my driving happens in first and second gear.I take this as an indication that the car is actually overpowered for this kind of track . Or maybe its simply that I am unable to controll the power of the 67's. Posted Image

thats is the "senna feeling at monaco", he drove the track like he was on a tunnel, i think Targa Florio generate that for many of us.... no chance to learn all turns, so make it flow :)

Is there a current link for the Targa Florio track?  I keep getting a "not on this server" error from the srmz link.

Thanks

5 years of driving here and yesterday was the first time I noticed Ginetto standing on the curb in Campofelice. :)  I got my first lap in the 34:00's too. It took a 7 liter Ferrari to do it.

You're looking for less than 1/1000 second per meter, little later on the brakes here tighter apex there and presto. You'd be amazed how much time can be gained at long tracks with tiny improvements. Just don't crash ;-)

If you learn to drive the 71 Can Am cars you'll easily do 34:00s too. It's going to take me a lot of work to match your Ferrari 330/P4 time, so anything I do in the Ferrari 712M you could do too with practice. I also found the 1971 McLaren M8F easily does 33:00s.

You make it seems so easy. :lol: But instead this is what often happens. :man-on-ice:

What is that? Ferrari 312 PB? It's funny I've never actually dreamed of driving one of those but I often dream of one day roaring around Sicily in a Ferrari 512, Alfa T33/3, and Porsche 908/03. It's a shame I don't love GTR2 like I love GPL otherwise I could use it's WSC70 mod to drive those cars at Targa Florio.

And thanks to the Targa Team for allowing/converting Targa Florio for GTR2 so more drivers have a chance to experience this masterpiece.

Ah, I'd assumed it was the GT mod. I've still to put the hours into the Can Am mods, I would imagine 712M is a real handful round the Targa! :)

The trick to going fast is to really learn the track and not push too hard, my fastest laps were set when I wasn't trying hard at all. I'm still a bit hazy in the middle section of the track between the first village and the quarry.

And if you want to really check if you've learnt the track, try driving it in reverse ;)

You mean that you don't already just sit on the sofa every now and then, close you eyes and play through a lap of the track in your mind? :P

Helmut Marko from 1972.

Copied/paste from Wikipedia :

Despite being concerned about poor safety at the Targa Florio, he drove the fastest laps around the 72 km Sicilian mountain circuit in the 1972 race, catching up over two minutes on the leader within two laps to finish second by a mere 17 seconds. His fastest lap in the Alfa Romeo 33 was 33 min 41 sec, at an average of 128.253 km/h.[2]

The Autodelta Team Alfa Romeo entries for 1972 were actually 33TT3 ("Telaio Tubolare" - for steel multi-tube space frame) with a 440 bhp 3 liter flat-12 V8 engine.  Previously the 33/3 had an aluminum monocoque chassis.  :)
