I will repeat what i wrote in the last thread:

The improved sonoma kart track is better in every way both curbs and height changes (although the sand/dried grass could be a bit more unforgiving), but someone has forgot to put the rubbered in racing line.

Not only does it provide visual contrast and braking references, i think i know that in rfactor games it provies 5% more grip (if it doesnt it should!) so it would add to the realism, in real life karting its very important to ride on the rubber.

It probably wont be done by tonight but hopefully for every other race.

 

But anyway looking forward to the races : )

I've forwarded this feedback, but for your information - these are just visual overlays. The potentially increased grip is related to the actual driving lines (AI, etc) and these are coded in properly.

 

Having said that, I hope we will get the rubber ones back on all of these new layouts  :)

Sonoma National Reverse is really nice to drive, much better than the original direction. The corners seem to flow better.

I feel for Ribeiro after this race, he had a super qualifying and start to the race but connection problems seem to let him down.

The Championship title is now wide open with Launger not in race 2 and Ribeiro's unfortunate technical issue.

If my calculations are correct iceman is currently leading after 2 consistent finishes. Good job man.

Jollys deleted post had a point, why does the hotlap always go up less than 24h before the live race if it says in the original post it should be up from wendseday? I see no reason why not to release it along with the evo/f3 and champ race hotlaps, its like you guys dont want big numbers in the race because you know the kart is not up to standards :) Also might just make the race

The table of the previous rounds you can see here: http://www.simracer.tk/kart/standings/, just click in the arrow on the left / right side of the table.

 

Was a well-disputed championship, sadly some problems not only with me, left the way free for other players, but the title is in good hands :)

Note: don't forget that it is unofficial

Hello Ribeiro, thank you for the great graphics.
I only see a small error.
It was not Season 7, it was Season 8!

Excellent graphics Ribeiro, thanks for spending time doing these.

 

That last race was very risky on fuel for me, I would normally go for 3L of fuel in all races but this one I decided to do 2L without testing the consumption. It got to about mid race and I realised I wasn't going to make it on my fuel load so I started lifting off the throttle before brake points, then being smoother on pressing the throttle but that wasn't saving enough so I turned on TC to stop any wheel spin. I was so nervous with 3 laps to go but managed to make it to the finish.

I feel for iceman after leading the championship before this round he deserved a better finish, also well done to D1amondback & jekyll on 3 consistent races.

elite speedway, I would like to congratulate you for your outstanding performance. ;)
I had no problems with 2L and at the end still fuel in the tank for a few rounds.
