@davejm are you still paying for the rllmuk practice server?  if you are, can we set it to Suzuka for some early GT3 practice?

 

if it's now lapsed and we're just going with simracing.gp for everything, that's cool.

Yep still got the server.  I was meaning to get it going for Suzuka sometime this weekend, so now is as good a time as any.  It's live now :)

Not sure if any of you are seeing the emails I send out.  I've sent a couple about the Suzuka event, but @Valver noted that they were sent to his spam folder.

 

Anyway, I've changed the Suzuka event to GT3 only as we didn't have enough sign ups for a multi-class.   

 

Those that were in GT4s I've changed you into a GT3; but check your car and change if needed.

 

The event is an experimental sprint format featuring 1x15 minutes of qualifying and 2x30 minute races; with the qualifying result forming the grid for both races.  I'm not sure if the 2 shorter qualifying sessions has been well liked; so I'd like to go with this to see if its better (and perhaps vote on it after).

If anyone's around tonight for some racing, I've signed up to the simgrid 8pm and 9pm races.

 

I might not make the 8pm one as I'm out earlier in the evening (in which case I'll unregister closer to the start time), but my time on holiday this week has given me a craving so I want to get in some racing before I go away again tomorrow :D

EDIT: Change of plan, and can't make either race :(

@davejm For the race I will pick the tricky Snetterton during the day with dry and sunny weather (if possible) and low variability.

 

Nice one Daniel :)

 

Schedule is taking shape...

Allright! Imola, afternoon, clear-ish and very hot, medium variability. 🙃

 

Nice.  I was hoping you'd choose Imola :)

 

That's it folks... our Season 6 schedule is decided...

Nice one, @davejm.

 

I cancelled my registration for the race on the 26th, because it's the night before our wedding (opening dance one-last-rehearsal night). :D

 

I should be on track for season VI though!

Is anyone else trying a new car for next season?

I want to but I dont want to be another McLaren, which we will also drive next enduro season. I might go with the Porsche as I like how it drives, though this season has so many tracks where its going to be very tricky and I know I'll be slow. Still undecided, and might stay with the Bentley.

Dancing is hard, man! 😓

 

Yeah I'm going with the AMR for season 6. Still have to test drive it though.

Probably. I've used the McLaren, Porsche and Aston in previous seasons. Might try the Ferrari as everyone seems to be moving away from it now. Or maybe the 911 again.

 

Or maybe something else :)

Going to give the Ferrari a first test drive this evening on the practice server as I'm signed up to the Suzuka race in it.

 

I've no clue what car to choose for next season, I think I will go for something mid/rear engine.

I fancy a total change of car too.  Across the seasons Ive already done both Merc's, a Macca, the Ferrari, and a Lambo.  I'm tempted to try the Honda NSX Evo - which I don't think anyone has used yet?

I had the NSX Evo for the last two seasons, are you people blind or what 🧐

(Was I that far off the pace?)

 

I plan to change for change's sake, but having done some practice in the Macca I do miss the Honda already. The McLaren feels significantly safer to drive straight away but the Honda felt like it fit my technique well most of the time.

This appeared on the AC Facebook page.  I wonder if there's more content planned for ACC?  I hope so!

 

Maybe it's AC2 news (and a side order of AC mobile)?

 

 

A nice dose of Nordschleife or the Le Mans Circuit would be the dream but very unlikely given license restrictions. I know Circuit Magny-Cours was supposed to be added in a DLC at some point as well but COVID-19 didn't allow for the laser scanning anymore. 

 

My gut feeling does sense a big dose of AC mobile though, which does not excite me one bit...

It *could* be a new licensing deal with the SRO GT3 America series.  That would add a whole heap of new tracks:

 

https://www.gt-world-challenge-america.com/calendar

 

Sonoma, Circuit of Americas, Virginia, Road America, Watkins Glen, Sebring and Indianapolis.  :wub:

 

In looking at their series I spotted Brendan Iribe (one of the co-founders of Oculus) is driving a Mclaren 720S GT3

Oh that would be a nice selection of new tracks to add, I always liked Circuit of Americas in project cars 2.

 

Had my first experience around Suzuka and the Ferrari 488 Evo yesterday, it's a tricky car to drive, I spun a lot and it didn't like the curbs that much. When I finally hooked up a lap it felt great though, I guess I'll just need to adjust to the different style of car compared to the Aston.

Suzuka is a really fun track as well, really nice flow the whole way around expect for spoon, I have absolutely no idea what I'm supposed to doing in that corner.

I want Road Atlanta in ACC! *pipe dream*

 

I'd settle for Sebring though. Actually, all of them are great!

I have to pull out tonight. Got a project finishing this week and trying to finish this week for a break, meaning I will be working late tonight. Apologies.

 

There's nothing scheduled for this week.  The Suzuka pre-season race is next week.
