Silverstone's okay I guess. I don't mind racing on it but I find it quite featureless. Of all the British tracks I rate it just above Snetterton (blegh) and I don't feel I'm particularly clicking with Silverstone that well. Seem to leave a bit of time in Stowe (need to sort out my braking point for that one still).

 

I'm on tonight again if anyone fancies a chat.

I'm going to try get on tonight, didn't get any practice in over the weekend so need to get going for this weeks race. I also really need to start practicing for the RCI races but the change between the Ferrari and Boat is massive, it's quite jarring.

Most of the time I'm able to suss the feel of a different car relatively quickly, but it took a bit longer with the M4 as well (also rather 'boat-ish') as it felt really sluggish compared to the Macca. Now I'm loving it!

eh, I dunno, I'm starting to get the hang of some of it. That took a lot of laps to do and I couldn't repeat it for the next few minutes afterwards. If I have time to put another 50-odd in then it could work!

How's the infection in your arm doing after a week of antibiotics, @davejm?

 

Not sure at the moment.  It's healed a fair bit, but there's still an unsightly looking area (although quite small now) that is a bit of an off bruised colour.  I've just finished the course (took my last pill this morning) but it's still not totally right.

 

Thinking of easing my way back to normal now though (sim racing, running); so I might join you guys tomorrow.  Although I'll be coming in very rough with no practice :D

That's good news! The antibiotics will stick around for about a week still so hopefully it will take care of the remainder. Nice to know you might join us!

@Valver That's awesome.  Any chance you could flip it to black on white etc so that I can use it on the website? :)

 

I went back and re-created it black on white...    that work OK?

This is amazing enough that I may have to retire the trophy at the end of this season.

Nooooo.  That trophy is our legacy!

 

Maybe @davejm can add a trophy page to the website with the previous season's trophy images

Just so we are aware. My change management skills have not transferred outside of work so the file has been overwritten every time. Therefore to get them all will need recovery from this thread. Also thanks to 2.02 2.03 group. I'm enjoying the company.

Blimey! I'll get a shovel then.

I have been stuck in the driest most dull video conference this afternoon - so I took one for the team and trawled through the 307 forum pages to collect a series of images.

 

I have to say it was a lot of fun.  Some really great posts and race incidents to remember!

 

We started with a simple "most Improved Driver" award at the end of Season 3 - which @Meers picked up:

Then Season 4 had a similar award that @milko won:

717725091_Season4mostimprovedawardimage.jpg.303ffbcd941cf9f2acf78e47dca3147d.jpg

and  @mrben09 stepped up to also create this absolutely amazing Season 4 award - but proceeded to title all the seasons wrongly 😄

I feel the need to point out that the design of the award was influenced by this image I created to celebrate @Meers's misheard budgie food "millet" eating:

Season 5's Most Improved award was won by @Erik, who showed up and blew us all into the weeds and won the season:

Season 6's most improved award was won by @SneakyNinja, and the engraver tried to make up for his earlier goof:

Season 7 Most Improved award was won by @davejm

And while I was in the thread - I grabbed all the Season standings tables - perhaps @davejm might want them on his page for posterity...

And (yes, it really was a boring video call!)

 

I wanted to see if there was a constant improvement in our GT3 times at Silverstone.  We've raced there several times:

 

Practice session in July 2020

Practice session in October 2020

2056824911_silverstonepracticeOct2020.png.3217f6cb8f07d68cc73d5a22824bb40a.png

 

Practice session in February 2021

415003452_silverstonepracticeFeb2021.png.45bfcd0c5be3b6c494c90742dd185866.png

 

 

The times for October 2020 were *much* faster for almost everyone.  I wonder what happened there?  Was it a server setting for Optimum grip, or an update to the physics that messed with something maybe?
