    Track Notes
    These 2 tracks were chosen for testing as they contain all variations required for a balanced and accurate assessment and test of the League vehicles' characteristics.

    Dijon is obviously a very familiar track for all GTL drivers, and while we all know that it can show off power and top speed, it also has a couple of other technical areas that will help with the driver's knowledge about their chosen vehicle. T1L requires good brakes to slow as late as possible, and a good steup will allow stable transitions from heavy braking to initial feathered throttle turn-in, to on-the-power turn exit. There are 2 very steeply contoured turns (T5L & T6R) to severely test out the grip, balance and poise of all cars and their setups. The long final corner (T8R) also tests the under/oversteer tendencies and ability to accept power, as you need to be on the power very early in the turn for a good lap time, but there is also a varying radius, a dip and crest to contend with as well.

    Vallelunga is a less familiar track, but it contains several other car testing features. It has a long front "straight" where there is a couple of very high speed kinks to negotiate, requiring stable changes of direction. Followed by T1R & T2R, a banked double apex turn where your car's stability over kerbs will be at a premium. T3R & T4L is another test of direction change at speed, with the exit of T4L also needing braking stability as you will possibly still be steering out of the turn as you need to brake for T5R. T6L is an incredibly tight turn so grip into and acceleration out of there is crucial, and the slow speed chicane T7aL & T7bR that follows is another big stability test.

    All in all, these 2 tracks were the best compromise for all the cars, allowing the power cars some straights to stretch their legs, the handling cars some complexes to catch up, and the balanced allrounders to patrol that middle ground between power and handling at all times.

    OK - the WTM-ers have finished their race, so it's back up now :good:
     
  14. thx :D
     
  15. Stuart am I officially signed up for the league?

    The Formula Masters Race I had already signed up for may not take place 2nite. If that's the case I'd like to drop in for Race 1 and do the practice session for Race 2. Then I'd have to leave for work.

    I'm not showing in the league in GPCOS at the moment :).

    Just a last reminder for you all before tonight:-

    Just for tonight, you can only use default skins, skins that came with the mod, or skins already in the GTC-76 skinpack.

    Please do not use your League skin if it is a 3rd party skin, otherwise you will have issues getting on to the server.
     
  19. sorry no time for today :( it is very bad with Thursdays for me :(
