    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.

    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.
