SGP Group C @ Spa Francorchamps - Tuesday 16th March 2021

Guys,
I have configured a championship with two races to test the reverse grid/gentleman's agreement for coming Thursday. I've limited it to 10 participants. The total will take 1,5 hour. Please register if you are able to join.

EDIT: I suppose that after race 1, you have to wait in the online screen until the second events start and then join. I don't think that will go automatically. Be sure to refresh the page!

Nice! I've signed up but I'm not 100% sure I can make it.

I chickened out at the last minute. Both the Mazda and I are overmatched on that track, and with very rusty live-racing racecraft, I've decided discretion is the better part of valor. Of course that's what all we cowards say, lol... anyway good luck and have fun and I will see you at some point. Some track without Eau Rouge / Radillon perhaps...

Oh! Hope you can make it though. We need you as a benchmark. :alien::thumbsup:;)

To my luck, my wife's appointment has changed from our house to another location, so I race tonight.

On the other side I'm alone with the kids and my little one was a bit ill last days. So keep fingers crossed she'll sleep all the race. :sleep::p

Congrats Reik, you were the benchmark tonight mate! :thumbsup:

Should have gone with hard tires! I think I had a small in advantage using the 1st gear in the beginning, then it turned to the opposite when tires started wear off.

I was a little surprised by the first attack and didn't defend properly. When I was trying to take the position back I realized I didn't have Helicorsa turned on and decided to take it easy. Then I got to far away from slipstream and just couldn't get close enough for the rest of the race. Well done!

Thank you all for racing tonight :thumbsup: Great to have Group C back. Congrats to @Erik Axelsson , @Reik Major and all who survived ;)

Next Group C race will be in 3-4 weeks and I hope you'll be back for more action.

My race itself was uneventful. Can not say boring because the C9 never allows you to get bored but I was missing fights for position. Rear tires gave up after ~20mins which resulted in the guys behind me coming closer and closer. One more lap and P3 would be gone. Next time I have to go back to hards.

I tried to push a bit, to put more pressure on your tyres. Just a touch too hard through the bus stop and she went all weird and slippy. Think it bottomed out on the kerb.. Fine margins with these!

Thank you very much. Honestly I didn't expect me to be so close to you tonight. I think using 2nd gear all time out of the last chicane and turn 1 was a slight advantage. So it would've become interesting later on, if you'd defended my first pass successfuly. ;)

However it was one of the most intense 30 minutes races I've ever done. Driving on eggs every single corner with consistant pressure from @Erik Axelsson in P2 was enforcing me to give my best all time and do a very clean race.

Only in the beginning of the penultimate lap I made a mistake, touching the grass when turning into T1. It send my sideways close to a spin and brought Erik in a good position on the inside. Fortunately I had better traction in a straight line then, so today the luck was on my side. ;):whistling:

Very well done to everyone. Group C cars are a handfull. :thumbsup:

And huge thanks to @640er for hosting this one! :inlove: And congrats for bringing home the beast in P3! :confused::thumbsup:

...oh dear, I'm still so excited! So here's the link to the replay file recorded in full quality, my qualy and race setups attached and I couldn't resist in making a vid of the first 2 laps, using two different cam tool 2 sets. (I hope you enjoy it, even though I'm not able to record in full HD :(:poop::whistling:)

Did I forget soemthing? Oh yes! @Marko77 did very well, when Erik and I lapped him on the last lap. That was very close to become a decider but was very well handled by you Mark! :thumbsup:

@Reik Major congrats! I had to decide stay on the racing line or telegraph moving over. Glad it worked out well. :thumbsup: Wanted not to get lapped as a final goal. I made a last minute change to 2nd gear that cost me in rhythm and got slippery during 1st lap. Was turning 2:15s in practice but not race day. Had fun learning this car.

Not my finest 30 min, I knew I was really up against it, managed a 10.8 in practice for the race, but it takes so many laps to do it with softs, there was no reality in it at all. Especially as they only last 2 laps.
It has half the downforce of the ST, even the C9 has 10% more.
Must have had loads of off track limit calls, probably dozens of them . :roflmao: :roflmao:
it would spin the rears anywhere and in any gear, except in a straight line, even then it was only in 5th that did not. He He.
Managed to grind most down, it is a pity I got punted, would have loved to have a go at Andreas with his knackered tyres, that would have been interesting, probably not realistic though.
Well done podiums, and a thankyou @640er for all his efforts, sorry for completely missing some corners too. :D :D

It's always great to have you on the grid with the LT. During the race I didn't realize that you, at one point, were behind me. At this stage of the race my focus was 100% on keeping the car on track. It was not until I watched the replay that I saw how lucky I was avoiding you attacking me. Too bad that it was decided by a punt.

What program do you use to make videos? I tried several times but it always gets very choppy even though the game itself runs smooth while recording. Am I cranking up the settings to high you think?
