I must say I needed to do that time, problem I am very close to the limit, almost impossible to go faster, even with splits for around 3:29.8
I had to use all the time the dust as part of track.

Tonight did some laps at the Ring, just for fun and set 8:17.33 with theLotus, far from my best time, but it was pretty fun. :thumbup:

probably... my time was mostly a drive through, I wanted to set only one lap and get a time
Gothica does not seem to be a very popular track too, IMHO

I drove a few more tracks this night:

New time: Birmingham Superprix Circuit 1989, Eagle time 1:37.571 session T
New time: El Pinar , Eagle time 1:12.977 session T
New time: Shutoko C1 , Eagle time 3:48.176 session T
New time: Rio , Eagle time 2:10.191 session T

Birmingham is a cool track. Nice flow and was really worthy to try some laps there. It is going to my favourite ones.
El Pinar is a nice track too, but it is not my style. In fact I don't like that much Vallelunga too, by the twisty section layout. Anyway, another good work from Sergio Loro. :thumbup:
Shutoko wasn't a track I could call fun. It was some time ago, when I was still learning the GPL. Today it becames great, looks like Spa with some walls around and a night Need For Speed scenary. The big surprise of night. What sucked, now rocks. :clap2:
Rio, although a brazilian track, is maybe the weirdest track I already driven in GPL, don't know why. Whoa, it looks a scrambled Rio de Janeiro!!!  :blink: and also, the chicanes are strange, specially at the end of beach.

I remember Rio as a clipping monster, but didin't looked at it for ages.





Atm I try to get under 3:20 at Spa .....

Should stop to plant the car into some hedges or walls :rolleyes:, splits says a 3:19 should be possible ....




13.02.2009
Update time: Spa Francorchamps 1967, Lotus time 3:20.461 session T improvement -1.412
New time: Gothica 1967, Ferrari time 23:38.136 session T

GPLRank score = 3.654 (no change)
Monster of GPLRank score = 250.609 (change of -1.412)
Not enough laptimes for a TotalRank




don't look at the Gothica time, that was the round for the screenshots in the release thread :P

Good luck at Spa Swen, get those exits right and your times will tumble ;)

Your trying some good tracks there Otavio, Birmingham is great isn't it? and Shutoko is a adrenaline track. I remember Rio fondly, it was quite advanced when it first came out if i remember right.

I had a breif race at Mosport last night and set a new PB, bonus! :)

Mosport Park 1967
  Brabham Race 1:21.114 (new)
    Practice 1:21.535 (new)

Nice one, Dark, good luck in Mosport :thumbup:

yeah, Birmingham and Shutoko were the best tracks of that night.

Gave another go in Shutoko last night and improved a few more seconds there.
It was a fun to chase a 3:43.56, while in the first time I raced there I was very lost, still used only with games like GP2, where the car all the time tends to follow the best line. Without AI driving fast there was a big challenge for me. A 4:15 would be an great achievement on my first go, a few time ago.

Gingerman looks a fun track, but it wasn't that great, I guess. I was spinning so much at the brakings, basically only doing small changes on default setup. 1:29.45 took me happy.

To close the night, a few attempts in JT Canyon. Stopped after reaching the sub 5 minutes: 4:53
Not the worse track after learning it.

Way to go Swen!  :thumbup:

Keep the new track times coming Otavio  :thumbup:

I started a new job today, back into the world of IT, gulp! :) With one thing or another i've been out of work and out of IT for a year and a half so my GPL time will suffer for a while until i get used to it all again and work out a routine i can fit everything into.

But thats no excuse for you lot to get lazy so keep those laptimes coming!! ;)

P.s. I don't know if you drop in here from time to time Burt but congrats on the 66 monster sir  :thumbup:

Thanks dark,

Yes all done at last. I would have been here earlier to blow my own trumpet very loud indeed but I have been a bit tied up smoothing over a bit of gpl based marital neglect (Mrs Burt threatened to flay me alive if I didn't spend more time with her around valentines day (that's also my birthday incidentally). So after a lot of wining and dining and flowers normal hostilities have been resumed...aah domestic bliss...well it's better than hitting yourself in the face with a mallet isn't it.

So, Gpl66 monster rank +357.678 which puts me 6th behind Kanzo.


aaaaand relax.

good luck with the new job.

all the best :blink:


Burt
