Hi Guys! Sorry to interrupt but I would like to be part of this, but no spots for any ATS? Can we do ATS have two different teams, as team A and B?

 

Thanks

Hey, Agus,

 

no need to apologies!

We'll sure get you on the grid. I provisionally paired you guys (Agus and Dahrec) up. You can change your teams until 10. July and add one reserve driver, whenever you want.

 

This is the last free livery, before we start to use some twice. I hope you like it!

Thiriet livery is still not taken ;)

Count the different liveries and you get 10, while teams are 9 at the moment. :)

Frankly I think that livery would be better for the second ATS team instead of Enjalbert. :D

Nice observation, Tume!

 

 Hmm, if ART and ATS would swap liveries, that would make a lot of sense, indeed.

Then, ATS 1 and ATS 2 would race Catsburg's and Thiriet's liveries and ART would have either Enjalbert or Schothorst, which would leave us with one more livery for our tenth sign-up.

 

ART, ATS, what do you guys think about this change of colours?

It's actually only a pure beauty issue, but thinking of possible live streams... However, two weeks to go. We'll figure it out.

If ART is alright with the livery swap, I'm all for it. It'll make the two ATS teams really look like we're one double team :)

ART, what do you guys say??

   Well are main colours are red and yellow, and I think the Catsburg suits us best.

    But if you want it you can have it :-)

The public event of the Renault World Tour: Act 2 at Zandvoort will expire in 8 days, on 6th of July.

 

I suggest to have a Test Race on sunday, 5th of July at 5 pm GMT.

Schedule for this Test Race:

 

 

Mégane Trophy Tour - Test Race (no points)

 

Sunday, 5th of July

Start of Qualifying at 5 pm GMT

--------------Please like, if you like!---------------

Sessions:

20 minutes Qualifying

10 minutes Warm-Up

25 laps Race (+1 lap behind safety car, due to rolling start)

 

Time Line

Qualifying 5:00 - 5:20 pm GMT; Warm-Up 5:20 - 5:30 pm GMT, Race Start 5:30 pm GMT (25 laps)

 

Setting:

  • Track: Zandvoort (chicane layout)
  • Server: 445467 (rolling start)
  • tire wear x1
  • fuel usage x1
  • damage ON (no invulnerability allowed)
  • daylight from start to finish
  • start type: rolling start behind safety car
  • pit strategy: open, no restrictions to timing and number of pit stops
  • setup: open

 

 

My personal thoughts on pit and race strategy:

 

You really should find a date to race the whole challenge at least once, to find out, how you want to play it.

From my point of view, there are two ways to go.

Either you set the car up very stable and go careful on those tires to do one pit stop somewhere near half race distance. That one is needed to refuel and change tires. (The Mégane Trophy uses a bit more fuel, than the calculation in the pit says!)

Or you decide to go in more agressively and have two pit stops, instead of only one. This way, you can go on a few litres less and if you don't get stuck in traffic, might be able to make up for the time left in the pits.

Either way, you will have to drive carefully, as Zandvoort goes really mean on those tires. You will experience noticably slower corner speeds towards the end of a stint.

 

And one more thing: The Mégane Trophy is ultra sensitive against damage towards both its suspsension and its carbon fibre body parts. You'll notice, that racing isn't going to be as close to the door of your opponents, as you might think. PLEASE AVOID CONTACT AT ALL TIMES.

Funny anecdote: On a practice run, sierra played around with the safety car during the formation lap and damaged his steering at only 60 km/h, by bumping into the old british Blower. Bad start for a race, where only body parts will be fixed in the pits.

Guys I'm getting mad...

 

What is the conversion between GMT and CET during summer? Because some websites say it's +1 and other website say it's +2.. Being in summer i think that the conversion is from BST to CEST, but I find different answers in the websites... What I know is that normally is +1 but I'm getting confused now.

 

Could someone help?  Thanks

 

 

P.S. JII02 I told you it was +2 but now let's see what others say...

Exactly.

+1 h is the difference.

I've been confused by this, earlier, but to meet my british team mates succesfully, I have to come online one hour past GMT :D That should be proof.

Heh, well I hope that's the last of the updates ^^'

Also you may want to swap the positions between Gral and bil to clarify the order.

I'd like to have a survey on the raceday.

It might suit some guys, including myself, best, to race on sundays, instead of saturdays or fridays.

I had a conversation with Coss, who said, it wouldn't interfere with SRW champ schedules, at least in July. Not quite sure, yet, what will happen in August. Might be a midweek champ again, or sunday as usual. But we're talking about July here.

 

 

So, like this post, if you'd like to race on sundays, at least in July, please!

Schedules have been updated!

...but are still provisional.

 

In general will we have three race weekends per month. Every first week of the month is for free practice and/or event development, as we need to test each event and sometimes have Coss change some settings, to get it run smoothly.

 

Therefore the following monthly plan:

1st weekend - no races

2nd weekend - qualification/heat races

3rd weekend - sprint race

4th weekend of the month - long distance (finale)

 

 

And, please, don't forget to vote for sunday races in July here.

With this schedule I probably cannot do the long race. It was perfect (for me) before, with the pause after the qualifying, and the race at 6:30-7:30 pm BST, but now I think that I can race only the short one. Np, if this schedule is better for most of you it's ok, I will race the endurance races in the future! :)

 

P.S. As I said, only the long race is the problem, count me in for the short one! ;)

Please see this link and give us your feedback by voting

 

that way we can see what majority means, especially that is why i left an option on both day / time for those like me for example

that can make it on both so i do not influence the vote on a special day /time

 

Cheers ,
