    Thank you so much, Patrick :) I find current Silverstone kinda boring, so racing a really fast version like that is a breath of fresh air! Great stuff, as usual.

    Hm, they actually raced F1 at a track like this ? :O_o:
    It's very simple. There's practically no challenge here. But it's got a nice flow and it's fine for some high speed fun.

    Maybe it is... :) I just find it hard to believe they'd race F1 on an easy layout like this.. It's a great high speed track, though, i agree.

    This article about Silverstone's changes through the years is worth checking out. I prefer this layout that Patrick uses - it's not as annoying as the current one, but it's not as simple as the initial ones.

    If you'd like to try the first versions of Silverstone, Test Drive Ferrari has a pretty good one, actually.

    The best way to see old layouts of tracks is racingcircuits.info. Here's Silverstone:
    http://racingcircuits.info/europe/united-kingdom/silverstone/

    My favorite Silverstone layout is 1991-1993 because that's when I started watching F1 and playing Crammond's F1GP. It has the modern Maggots-Becketts complex and fast Abbey, not the chicane.

    Thanks again, Patrick. Any chance of tackling Essington, Toban, Rouen or Le Mans? Or perhaps DRM Revival mod?

    I had so much fun yesterday with the FClassics. And also with the Extremes... 275kph average is a bit silly. Unless my math is wrong. Which is a distinct possibility.

    Exactly on this day 27 years ago Ayrton Senna won British GP in the wet.



    It's just a coincidental info for those who had no idea F1 raced there :p

    You could easily race V12 and Classics side by side here, or so it seems. :O_o: At least in my experience i can do practically the same lap time on default setup in both Fs. I wish Reiza would improve the Classics engine sound, though, if it's not against the realism. I feel it's so low noise and tame compared to V12 sound and doesn't give the best indication of the immense power the formula has.

    Try this : http://sim-racing-evolution.fr/downloads/root_hidden_private/F_Classic_New_Sounds.rar

    Put It in the root folder. Overwrite.

    Edit the .veh of the car you drive. Just add the bolted line and the //
    Delete this line and the // above if you dont like.

    DefaultLivery="Classic01.dds"

    HDVehicle=F_Classic.hdv
    Graphics=F_Classic.gen
    Spinner=F_Classic_Spinner.gen
    Upgrades="F_Classic_upgrades.ini"
    GenString=

    Thanks, Patrick. I find this one more exciting than default. :thumbsup: Default is a bit boring.
    I also need better headphones for sure. I'm currently using some very basic 5€ stuff. :D

    Well, Formula Classic simulates McLaren MP4/4 = V6 turbo engine (just like F1 since 2014 with some differences). Of course it produces much less noise than noisiest of them all - V12.
