  2. Abarth time :love:. Was hoping Nordschleife would be released by now, but maybe in time for the next event.

    Anyway, short track, great little cars, should be fun. Sprint + Feature race, I was doing 40-something second laps, so that'll be about 10 and 25 minute long race.
    Was thinking about lowering the damage, to about 30%, thoughts?

    Regular starting procedure this time, the cars are slow, so I'm hoping there will be little drama.

    If you have skins you'd like to use, post them here, and I'll put them in the zip file.

    I've been practising a bit this weekend and this car/track is an amazing combination. Really good fun. Well done Senad!

    netKar is surely the best racing sim.
  7. It's a nice little track, we'll just have to see how it works with 10 cars tootling along :fwd:
    I hope blue flags are functioning properly, LOL.
  8. Ive never been a fan of the Abarth, just don't understand its handling ( lift oversteer -spin etc) it feels like the original 500 with a rear engine which is odd as its a modern F/F config. However, this awesome track and the little shoebox work together so well you can sign me up.
    There are a whole lot of extra skins available - the 2011 Motogp colours/riders that look pretty good too. I think I got them from RSR, as usual.
  9. Same here, but for the first time I will give a try.
  10. I've always loved it, but it was very rarely used here. I think 2 or 3 times since I joined the nKPro part of the forum.

    True, I'd also expect for it to behave differently, but just imagine it's RR, and have fun :tongue:
  11. Messed with setup for days and finally went back to default. Its better than anything I could come up with.
    There were some of us racing on the server and my car just quit and would not restart. Went back to box and no messages and plenty of fuel. It started fine in the box. Weird. But fun cars to drive!
  12. Motogp set sent to your email, Senad.
    I bags the Randy De Puniet Ducati car :wink:
  13. Cheers Daniel :thanks: I tried to find some skins last night, but there are none.

    Anyway, uploaded these on my Dropbox for the time being. There is no info in the archive, so I don't know who to credit.

    If anyone's interested, download, look them over, and if you want to use one of them, let me know, and I'll add it to the skin pack.

    I have to make it a maybe for tonight. My PC is making some trouble, and my portable is too slow for this event.

    See you :)
  15. Before 2 weeks i missed a race because a thunderbolt destroyed my router,a/c and motherboard of my pc.Today another one destroyed my hard disc...I feel cursed!
  16. Arrrhhh, I just discover this car makes me feel even older, everyone passes me, it seems like I'm an old lady going shopping, what a nightmare!

    Grats to Kevin and thanks to Senad!
  17. Ouch, bad luck :frown:

    Anyway, fun race. A bit of mayhem in race 1, I think Daniel O. forgot to turn on his car on the start :tongue:, so there was a mini pile-up involving him, Adam, and myself.
    Had to pit twice, unfortunately, so not a great race results-wise.

    Race 2 was brilliant! Ozan, Can, Adam and me running close together early on, Ozan and Can collided, and we all went off, LOL. After that, was just me and Ozan till the end.
    No other incidents for me, nice start too, kudos to everyone.

    Results here.

    Thanks to everyone who joined, especially Sergio for sticking around, even though the Abarth isn't his favourite car :tongue:
    See you all next week :fwd:
  18. I'm thinking in the drivers rank, any DNF ruins my position, lool!
  19. Looking at the results, congrats to David as well, not a single yellow flag, and most consistent laps in both races :eek:

    The race was so tiring that I've already forgotten what happened! But I remember having great fun.

    I spun in weird place in Race 1 and Daniel absolutely smashed me to pieces, I wish I'd saved the reply, it felt like I went 20 metres up in the air. Sorry Daniel for getting in the way!

    Race 2 was particularly good, especially my battle with Can, who I'd been watching battle with Senad until the Croatian got away!

    Great cars to race with and a really well suited track.

    The results thing is great - amazing stats.

    Thanks to all who raced, and well done to Kevin!
