Hey all, there is a new weekly PnG race series starting up, called "Vintage Freaks"

races will be Thursday nights at 11pm EST ( GMT -5 hours ) with practice opening at 10pm

the first test race is going to be the fantastic new Virtua LM track: Rouen 1955-1974 version

track link:

http://forum.emacber...hp?f=184&t=6883


in multiplayer, look for:

[PnG2] VF VLM Rouen

in the lobby....server will be up for practice intermittantly until raceday....terrain patch is ON

depending on turnout we'll discuss race series ideas/tracks/car combinations....the aim will be to replicate the road racing experience of the '60's


cars allowed are Group 3 over 2 litre ( Cobra, Ferrari, GT350, Jaguar, etc )

races will be 45min in length with 1 mandatory pitstop for fuel


cheers

Definitely interested in this series. Sounds good.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to join the server. No error message, it just sat there half frozen for a few seconds and then that was it. Didn't have any problems joining other servers like SimJunkies. I have a clean PnG 2.1 install with no mods or skins added and latest VLM Rouen. Terrain patch is also on.


EDIT:  Nevermind, it seems to work now. I was able to join and run laps so it should be ok.

well as a test race it wasn't too bad...

had a couple people try to join just before the race that had problems, I'm guessing it's either the terrain patch, or maybe having extra cars in the PnG install? we can try to sort it out before next race

too bad because it was a fun race...I need to apologize to gazman as I rammed right into him, trying to brake for the hairpin at the start of the race!! sorry, it was unintentional

GTR2 seems more picky with having different cars in each users game dir....I would strongly suggest using a vanilla PnG install, with only the default cars,  for online races. if there are standalones mixed in I think it causes issues.

the server will be left up so people can test WELL BEFORE THE RACE....please try to fix any problems before race night, as there usually isn't much time last-minute & we can't hold everybody up trying to solve


anyway here's the results

I think we'll be moving to tuesday nights after next week

Should be great fun----that is a wicked track--very nice----Thanks VLM.

In the future maybe we can try different classes and cars. When V3 hits the variety will be most entertaining.

The PnG crew are doing a super job and MCLOWERY and DRAGON are like kids in a candy store. Our combined age is 132 which is about the topspeed of the TR4.  When we reach the topspeed of a big block GT40 down the Mulsanne straight Then we'll race together on a holodeck----lol :lol:

Holy Cow. Just added up the combined age of me and my good mate and it comes to 97. I hope we have as much fun as you guys when we reach that age, we both met through our involvement in motor racing but he has not discovered sim racing yet so I am the only one enjoying myself.

Well for the first real race, a dry run, we had a great turnout: 10 drivers started on the grid

unfortunately '55 Rouen is an unforgiving track & there were lots of casualties....plus a couple pit problems: ie: Roy couldn't get his pit crew to do anything to his car!!

myself I eventually wrecked trying to type while driving...urg...but the race was fun while it lasted!!


results are posted here:

http://vf.hostzi.com...uen_01_14_2010/


congratulations to everyone who finished the race ;)


podium finishers:

1. Tom Yeiser
2. David Kennard
3. Rob Burns

thx to everyone for coming out!!


let me know what you think about the car classes: I am considering limiting the corvettes to the Z06...that way we'll have a better mix: the L88's surely dominate & it'd be nice to get more jags, ferrrari's, cobra's etc into the mix. and maybe the GT350 scca's only


next week is VLM Mid-Ohio...we'll run a race Tuesday and Thursday nights & compare how scheds work out for everyone

can't find the link on the VLM site, but the GTR2 version is here:

sorry guys, extremely busy lately...lets run Mosport '67 next week though, I'll get it on the server asap

http://www.nogriprac...hp?filenr=22521


I also cut out all but the Z06 vettes because they were WAY faster than anything else in the O2L class....got rid of the 275 speciale too, that should level things out a bit

this weeks race report:

http://www.vf.hostzi...7_31march_2010/

watkins '67 has very unforgiving haybales if you spin off lol :laugh:

I hadn't done any laps in the daytona so my 289 brake distances were horribly insufficient :twisted: slid off a few times, then got it sorted out...had my sights set on 2nd ( thx to mclowry's engine blow up!! too bad! ) then 3 laps from the end I slid off again trying to prevent "lightning" robbie from lapping me...crashed into a haybale & had to pit for repairs, couldn't even limp the 3 laps home

congrats to robbie for the win!!
and brian for 2nd place!!

podium finishers:

1.Rob Burns
2.BKHGT
