Another week where you could almost pick any car, and set a good time. The top 4 drivers used different cars, with minsons setting 2nd place times in both the Coronet, and the GTO :D

xAlea took first place yet again with minsons, and myself filling the podium places. Quite happy that PRKid didn't get a chance to run LOL. Rare chance for me a podium :D

The final leaderboard:




Congratulations to our podium drivers!

1st place: xAlea Jacta Est
2nd place: minsons
3rd place: HLR Moss

Thanks to everyone for joining in.

This week we are off to Prague to run some vintage sports cars. It is one of my favourite tracks, and I'm hoping I can beat my current time with a car from this division. I'll have fun trying!



Week 26
Prague Full
B Class Rivals
Cars restricted to the Vintage Sport GT division.
Event will close on Wednesday, 24th March at 9pm UK time (GMT).

We will track your times here - HLC Leaderboard .

The Vintage Sport GT Cars

1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
1970 Alfa Romeo Montreal
1968 Ferrari 365 GTB/4
1967 Lamborghini Miura P400

The Montreal and the Miura have been the cars to beat previously. They will probably be closely matched again on this track.

I managed to beat my previous Dodge Dart PB in the Miura.

Setup is shared for anyone that cares to give it a run. I only use 2 gears for the lap, which makes it a pleasure to drive!

I don't mind the short version of Prague, but the full version gets a little lot onrampish. I really wish there were more options in this Division. Pantera, for one. Probably a bunch more cool cars that'd fit.

Will be taking the Heckin' Chonker out for a spin, I think. The Miura's pretty enough, but have a strict No Lamborghini policy. The other two just don't click with me for whatever reason.

==

Edit to add:

First few runs were pretty rough, but I'm starting to get a feel for the track. There's a very fine line between "surfing the camber" on the inside of the corner and running wide and having the car push like a pig straight into the Armco. Doesn't help much the HC is kind of pushy to start with. I blame the fact that it looks like a Mustang.

Current best: 2:08.7xx

Prague may not be everyone's idea of fun, but I thoroughly enjoyed chasing Fifty Inch around the city. Despite leading by a good 3 tenths approaching the final chicane, my failing reactions let me down every time :D Congratulations Fifty on a well deserved win!

I modified my shared setup by adding a street chassis to reduce slide on the rears, but my new time registered as though I had used the shared setup. Has anyone else ever experienced this? It surely should not happen.

The Miura was the car of choice, but minsons unsurprisingly managed to push the Montreal into a podium position.

The final leaderboard:




Congratulations to our podium drivers!

1st place: Fifty Inch
2nd place: HLR Moss
3rd place: minsons

Thanks to everyone for suffering the pain of that final chicane LOL.

Hey Moss that was quite a battle and I agree the last chicane is a pain in the ***. lol.

Don’t know how I managed the time - upon trying again today I couldn’t even remotely come close.

Not many cars can live with the Lotus 340R around Hock Short, holding down the top 32 positions on the leaderboard. The Lancia 037 came closest, with the Lancia Delta S4 close behind.

xAlea won convincingly in the Lancia 037, with razzitGT, and minsons fighting for the remaining podium places. minsons and STIdarkside 88 both drove the Lancia Delta S4 to finish in excellent 3rd and 4th positions.

The final leaderboard:




Congratulations to our podium drivers!

1st place: xAlea Jacta Est
2nd place: razzitGT
3rd place: minsons

Thanks to everyone for competing.

Not going to be getting much seat time this week, either. Trying to get my garage lighting finished (I keep slacking off on it) and am working on an auto expense tracker spreadsheet. Speaking of which, time to run some wiring.

The 190E has been the dominant car around the Bernese Alps since the track was introduced from what I can remember. I've managed a 1:31.980 this week in it.

I found watching Wil Zoom's replay quite useful. He uses some lines in corners which I hadn't used in the past .

Coming down the mountain has always been the hardest part of the track if you get it wrong you lose loads of time.

This event was dominated by the Mercedes-Benz 190E, and almost turned into a single setup time trial due to the quality of V12 Pa **** ky's shared setup. Considering the almost 8000 runners, it is quite an achievement for us to end with the majority in the top 100, and 5 in the top 20.
OltanisOrbit, minsons, and razzitGT ran amazing times to finish in the top 10, with xAlea running his own setup to finish 4th. minsons tried hard to find an alternative car to compete, setting a very good time in the Alfa Romeo SZ Zagato, before switching to the 190E on the last day.

The final leaderboard:




Congratulations to our podium drivers!

1st place: OltanisOrbit
2nd place: minsons
3rd place: razzitGT

Thanks to everyone for competing.

Been waiting for a rain event. I know I can get mid to high 1:36's with some more laps but tomorrow is the last day I'll be able to run this one. Hoping to drop into the 1:36's with a few more attempts tonight.

Fun as always.

LOL, It is getting tough to find tracks that most of our regulars haven't run. In my defence I did give it a quick run to check there wasn't too much standing water. The cars are quite good too :D

Brands Hatch in the rain was a challenge, but at least 3 of the cars performed well. Fifty Inch, and STIdarkside chose the '00 Cobra Mustang to lead the pack for most of the week, whilst minsons experimented with a variety of cars, including the '07 Shelby Mustang before settling on the '02 Camaro.

The top 4 were separated by less than 3 tenths of a second, with razzitGT just missing out on a podium position.

The final leaderboard:




Congratulations to our podium drivers!

1st place: minsons
2nd place: Fifty Inch
3rd place: STIdarkside 88

The following event will be the final one in Season 4, so we decided to try something different. We have never run NASCAR, and we have never run an oval, so we are off to the brickyard to see if we can tame these beasts.

Many thanks to you all for accepting our challenges over the last 30 weeks. We'll let you know if we decide to start a season 5 before FM8 launches. It would be helpful if Turn 10 could update us on their progress!



Week 30 (Season 4 Finale)

Surprised my time was good enough to keep me on the podium. I know a mid 1:36 was possible if I would have been able to run it more.

Thanks Moss for another great season!
