A Strictly Fun Gpl League
Posted Aug 08 2013 - 09:59 PM
During the 40 minute races, there are two or more Yellow Flag sessions where the cars are encouraged to swap places. The slow guys go ahead and the fast guys relish the challenge of regaining the lead. There are no points or tracking of placings.
The first interesting feature is that we usually use the Basic Trainer and Advanced Trainer of the 67 F2 mod. We’ve found that the Trainer cars are easier to drive, and on the very tight, short tracks that we often use, the skill level to go fast is very high, even without the high power and speed. The online racing with the Trainer cars can only be done at VROC and we’ll help you with the easy instructions to get racing.
The second thing which is great fun is that we chat on Teamspeak as we practice and during the race – sometimes seeing if we get others to laugh their way off the track.
Get all the information that you need about running with us at http://games.groups....p/LoPeN_Racers/ and contact Lou Magyar at ljmagyar_at_gmail.com for more information.
I’ve found that the low pressure racing in this league has helped to make GPL tremendous fun and allowed me to get better at online racing without the worry of ruining other serious racers’ races.

Bob, and another long time member Warren Hall Jr often (almost every race) provide very driveable setups for all to use. In many cases, no tweaking is ever needed to make the car work for your style.

In GEM, you can select the Basic Trainer just to the right of the season drop down.
Attached are the BT setups that I start with at each track. Just adjust the gearing for max power at around 8,000 rpm with the BTs.

It was a Scottie request so he could train virtually other than with his real formula vee.
I might try to train and see how I go with BTs

I hope the email I sent you cleared some things up. The LoPeN group that Bob linked in the first post is regularly updated with the track choice, a link to the track, and a calendar, with reminders. I strongly recommend joining the group, as there is a wealth of knowlege - and setups there.

We've been gaining a bit of momentum with new drivers joining and still happily welcome new-comers.
