    To promote this little fun league. Did some of the practice races and were quite fun and had good variation of skill levels. Thought some of you maybe wanna look into it.
     
  3. Thanks for sharing. Tried my hand at this car too - much fun but the setup sheets are a head buzzer - so good to see the fixed setups. ...unfortunately, too early PST for me to partake. Got to feed the family. Have fun and keep us posted on how it goes. Love the car. So fast my eyes bleed trying to keep up.

    I should mention its fixed setup racing using the High down force set, so very easy to drive. Just show up and go, thats it. Like it says, its meant to be a "fun" league for various skill levels, to learn the car and get to race it with no pressure.

    Yeah I know, figured I would throw it out there anyway. Will be tough for me as well, since I have to head to work right after and work the midnight shift :/
     
  7. Ack! You just reminded me there are different baseline setups! Kept wondering what I'm doing wrong in the practice sessions being so far off the pace. Like I'm missing a DRS zone or something.

    ...back to the garage...

  12. I am running the HPD in the Autobahn Motor Car series that is broadcast on the YT Global Sim Racing Channel. I'm a back of the pack guy but it is great fun.

    Its the best open wheel car in a Sim, hands down. I normally dont like F1 cars, but this car is so approachable and the way the power is delivered is quite unique.

    Its the best open wheel car and Ive had some great racing with it. There are two little leagues I race in, in various times and days if your interested. There both fixed setup leagues, so just show up and drive and newcomers are welcome.

    One is this one ISDC on Monday nights and the other is league of eternal F1 rookies on Tuesday afternoons. Each have there own race format and are simply fun leagues.
