NZrFL 59: KSR Grand Prix Championship - Round 2 - NOLA

This is not the layout we are running

Round 2 of the KSR Grand Prix series and we're Stateside and NOLA Motorsports park

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 refuelling)
  • 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 noticed a few people did not have auto-clutch on when looking at the results. To confirm, in every other session you will be able to manually start these if you stall, however in the race you will not be able to.

I've added this in the car selection thread, but the McLaren has an issue, so we won't be able to use it on our race nights. This is a shame considering the Kiwi heritage of the team and the drivers included in the 91' edition, but not racing at all would be worse.

When I try to join the KSR F1 server, I get a "Data Transfer Timeout" error (in red) in and the join button in the rF2 launcher remains greyed out? Anyone else having this problem?

Hard work last night, the track certainly didn't give much time to breath over race distance.

Well done to everyone who finished.

I have adjusted the points slightly as Andrew did not take both compounds which means Yoda, Erik and Maniak all gain slightly.

Sorry my bad, im new to this >_<

How do you change tyre compound mid race?
In pits or do you need to return to garage?
When i pitted it went and changed tyres without asking what i wanted ha ha

Hi Andrew, have a look here for a quick view on how to do it.

https://simracing-gp.net/topic-117/how_ ... _procedure

you need to map a few extra buttons. Alternatively, racing in multiplayer something like crew chief app is invaluable and can do the pitstop settings for you automatically. Other than that, it provides great value in telling you things like there is traffic coming when you leave the pitlane as well as other information during the race.
