How come we don’t have a server up for this yet?
I don’t want to turn up on the night and end up having issues trying to join.

Argh, I have to travel to Tauranga tomorrow for work - I should be back on time for the start, though I may miss qualifying. I'll just have to make sure I won't show up on the starting grid wearing my Formula Renault 3.5 Surely no one will notice right? :larf:

There are 3 versions of this modern track (0.80, 0.82 and 0.83), and both 0.80 and 0.83 do not work on server, and 0.82 does work, but has a track grip bug that makes the final chicane impossible to drive. Unfortunately I had done testing offline, and not on a server, so didn't pick up on the issue earlier.


Edit: The race will take place using the VLM version of Le Mans instead.

Or even as a really desperate change, run Spa tonight until we find a version of Le Mans we like. Most of us know the place on a high level so the learning curve isn't so bad.

I am hoping to be there, I'm having to do stuff and things at work tonight, but might be able to time it right :)

The race tonight will take place using the VLM Le Mans track. This is the 1991-1996 layout. I apologize to all who practiced with the modern layout.


The track can be downloaded here:

Big thanks to Riven for setting up the server with very short notice.

Can someone indicate how this layout differs from the other one? I will not have any time to practice tonight before qualifying and the actual race?

It's more or less the same, except after the Dunlop chicane (turn 1,2) there isn't the right hand kink. There are a few other differences by virtue of being made by different modders, kerbs and elevation and such.

Here's the 91 layout: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... 0-2001.png

And modern:
