    Please sign me in to the GT3 class. You have announced a fantastic line-up of events @Daiman Patel, I will try to participate in some of them at least.

    It will definitely turn up this time. :roflmao: I think somebody might have left it on a trailer outside the circuit for the last race... :whistling:

    Sorry chaps, I won't be able to join you this evening - got to work late. :cry: I'll try my best to be back for next week's events, especially given that we'll be using the new car and track! :x3:
     
  10. I can run the race with the GT3?

    Great race till all my troubles: crashing, pitstops and finally a dead engine. I was wondering: do you need to manually shut off your engine during pitstop? Maybe overheating during the stops caused my engine failure.

    Yes, was fun, but I should have practised a bit more. Than I could have fine tuned my car and would have had a bit less spins in the 10th corner. :D

    I would suggest @red bullet to assign a button to shut down the engine. In endurance racing they always do that. If you are in race and the engine is getting hot. Try to short shift and don't let the engine Rev too much. Downshifting too fast is not good either. During practise watch all temperatures carefully and make sure they stay on the save side during a long run.:thumbsup:

    Thx for the tips and the setup.

    Even with a good setup, n° 10 is a difficult corner. Going over a crest while turning makes it hard to brake.

  16. Hello everyone!!. The truth that has been a nice race , shame that we were not more on track.
    Mention that on lap 13 we touched with Stefan Woudenberg at Turn 1 to 2 , and made to do a spin , leave the room so he could pull but when he stepped inside the curve caused him to lose traction , to better could have been avoided .
    I could set me say that the high temperatures in the qualifier and could open the conduit , otherwise I would have been the same .
    Also another thing I usually do is stop the engine box to prevent overheating .

    Congratulate the organization and participants . I hope to see us at upcoming events .

    Leave the video on board to mdavid54



    regards

    @Stefan, I just tried your tips on the server and with the smoother steering I now did 16 laps on one set of tyres and I still had 2 red bars left on the car status. (y)
