1991 F1 Championship - Round 2 - Imola - 28th May

Round 2 of the KSR 1991 F1 Championship takes us up to Europe and Autódromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari aka Imola.

Imola is based in the town of Imola which is 40 k's east of Bologna and 80 k's east of Maranello.

The circuit is named after Enzo Ferarri and his son Dino.

The circuit hosted the San Marino grand Prix (the Italian Grand Prix was usually held at Monza) up until the 2016 season.

The most famous of these Grand Prix weekends was 1994 where 2 drivers (Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger) both had fatal accidents. Rubens Barrichello also had a horrific accident on the Friday practice session.

We're running the historic version of this track before this weekend, so Tamburello is flat out as is Villeneuve corner.

Download Link. Like last week, you'll need all the content from the main thread to be able to join the server.

Night schedule (21st May)
8:00pm - Official Practice
9:00pm - Qualifying (15 minute open session - do as many laps as you'd like)
9:15pm - Drivers briefing and warm up (practice your pit stops)
9:20pm - Race Start (35 Laps)

Compulsory Pit Stop
After testing, I have switched back the rule You must run both compounds of tyre. Apologies for the confusion (you still cannot pit on the last lap, and you cannot run qualifying tyres in the race). Also note that the 2nd place finisher from round 1 made 2 pit stops, so again the least amount of pit stops may not be the fastest way to finish the GP

Voice Communications
Everyone must be on the Discord sever at least in listen mode for the race.

Additional Information
This is a harder track than Interlagos, so if possible do some practice. However some really impressive driving in round I so hope that continues.

The fuel tanks actually have a capacity of well over the default of 110L, so fuel should not be an issue for anyone, however bear in mind, the less fuel you run, the faster you can be without being as hard on the tyres.

The engines do not last long after getting hot - make sure to run enough cooling and have boost adjustment buttons mapped. Same for the tyres (ask me how I know). If you slide\spin the tyres they get very hot and wear out quickly.

The brake disks also wear out - it's advisable to run the smallest disks you can without them exploding (larger disks = more rotating weight).

As mentioned in the main thread, Qualifying tyres are banned from the race (we see this from Live Timing and the Points Site), if you run qualy tyres you will be excluded from the race result.

Practice pit stops - the speeding penalties are extremely sensitive. We are looking at turning the speed limit off, I will post an update if this is successful. - Update - the speed limit will remain.

Thanks for the racing last night guys.

Was very last minute decision after a quick test drive 3 days after knee surgery so appreciate the help in getting things sorted and connected. Looking forward to magny cours next week!

Hopefully we might have some Mclaren's in the mix!

or I might be asking for an upgrade from the Jordan ;)

Once again abandoning poor old Bertrand, didn't he get done for bashing a taxi driver or something?

Hi Mark,

All things considered, I think you did extremely well - still gutted about the botched pit stop (21 seconds to repair damage that wasn't required) and then in my frustration banking a drive through penalty before blowing my engine trying to catch up with you again! :D

It was a great race though, very tough and there were plenty of casualties. Thankfully I managed to pass the threshold to still get points for my 5th place. Thanks to our team's number 1 driver (which sure as hell isn't me), Scuderia Ferrari is doing pretty well at the moment!

Interesting night, bad start, got a rhythm in the middle and pretty stoked to finish 3rd - with less than 4 brake rotors for the last couple of laps and one over the finish line :).
