Let's do this again! We had a good group last time.

 

Friday 2/24/17

 

Session name:

ChumpCar Daytona Practice

 

Practice:            7:00 PM (EST) 

Qual:                   9:00-9:10 

Race:                  9:10-10:00 

 

Race:

Rolling start

Unlimited fast repairs

2 cars, single class

 

Cars:

Global MX5 Cup -

Iracing baseline setup

Closest to 4 & 6 cyl chumpcars

(~2:12 laptimes)

 

Street stock -

500 lbs ballast added

Closest to 8cyl 'merican chumpcars

(~2:09 laptimes but harder to drive)

 

You don't have to run the entire practice session so feel free to jump in any time, but you do need to join by 9:00 if you'd like to qualify and race.

 

I'll look into a way of handicapping the street stock a bit more tonight and verify that the miata setup is correct since some people mentioned that it didn't feel normal in the last session. Even if you aren't racing Daytona please join us as the more people there are the better the racing is.

 

See ya there!

Sounds great. iRacing is working on my software. Getting error message but they are working on it today so I should be there....

I've had a few battles with it as well. If you're still having trouble let me know and I'll try to help. Usually uninstalling the "iracing helper service" solves most of my issues - when you go to join a race it will automatically redownload and install the service.

If anyone wants to do some forza instead of i-racing, let me know. 

Apparently the next iteration of Forza is coming to PC as well. Hopefully online play will be cross platform.  I like iracing but I miss racing Huracan's in a RWD, turbo, F20c swapped EG civic. I did manage to get GT4 for PS2 to run on an emulator the other day (I have no life).

Before starting lemons in 2009, I was top 100 in the world at Forza. First time I ran Lemons, I was like "Holy crap, this is like Froza but IRL". I have been racing like crazy since. 

 

Haha I had a similar first experience, though I mostly played the GT games with a controlder as a wee child. I moved on to iracing and typically float around in the top 50-100 in the mx5 cup (not nearly as impressive as top 100 amongst millions of Forza players).

 

My first time in a racecar (and first time ever on a racetrack at all) at NCM in 2014 I managed to get within 1s of my team mates who have been at it for several years. Interestingly I get faster on the sim after every real-life race and vice versa. The physics aren't quite 1:1 with reality but the traffic management certainly is close.

I don't have iRacing at all.  One of my friends who lives close to my FW house has it and we used it to practice on COTA.  It was helpful to learn the track.  When we get all moved into the new house I'll probably look into building a setup of some sort.

Great....another racer to kick my butt.

Results from the test session. I'd like to run one per week until the race, let me know what dates would work best for you!

Thanks to everyone who ran, hopefully we can get more to stay for the race session next time. I'll work on balancing the cars better.

If desired we can run a single car. This might be better for practicing "racing" in larger groups. Feedback appreciated!
 
See ya there!

AGGGGGHHHH. Completely forgot about it. Next time: Calendar reminder.

Hope you had a good turnout @gr1vlet!

 

I'm sure we'll set another one up for this week. We had a pretty good turnout - 39 drivers throughout the session and 15 started the race. I think RJ still needs to work on the BoP a little bit. The only way he could get close to the street stock time running the Miata was when I pushed him down both straights (which usually resulted in a giant NASCAR-style crash in the trioval).
