NZrFL 59: KSR Grand Prix Championship - Round 1 - Instanbul

Round 1 of the KSR Grand Prix series and we're over in Turkey.

The track was opened in 2005 primarily to host F1 races. It's most famous for Turn 8 which is a multi-apex sweeping left hander. When the 2020 cars visit in real life later this year it will probably be flat without issue, but it's a different proposition in race cars from a by-gone era.

Race Night Schedule (NZT):
[20:00] - Official Practice
[21:00] - Qualifying (fully open session, everyone on track at once and unlimited laps)
[21:15] - Warmup & driver briefing
[21:20] - Race Start (50 minute timed race)

Race Settings
  • 1 x Fuel (as above - there is no refueling)
  • 1 x Tyres
  • 2 x Road Progression
  • CPS's - You must run both versions of the race tyre (Soft & Hard) and cannot change tyres on the last lap of the race. (this does not mean that a single stop strategy will be fastest)
  • The Qualifying tyre is banned for the race, but available for use during qualifying.
  • Auto Clutch & Auto Blip - I highly recommend turning auto clutch on due to the possibility of stalling.
  • Traction Control Allowed - Due to the difficulty to drive I'm allowing traction control
  • No Black flags
  • 75% damage
  • Mechanical Failures - Off
  • Type of start - Standing
Special Note
As we have turned off black flags, this has the impact of having no enforceable pit lane speed limit. So, you can speed as you see fit through pit-lane.

I'll have to miss this first race unfortunately but I'll definitely join the rest of the series.

Thanks for the racing last night everyone.

Next week we're onto NOLA, which will be an interesting prospect in these.

Yes, it was good last night, good to be back.

Had a few laps at nola. Will be interesting for sure. Not many places for overtakes, hopefully not too much divebombing.
