BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

OK guys, I’ve been chatting with one of the key guys at Trout and there’s something I did for them a while back that never got used, but maybe WE can pioneer it:-

Basically, we all start off the season with our own “team” copy of each car and they are all identical (I might make these a teeny bit slower than our current one).

Then after every race, each team gets to pick one “upgrade” package per member that completed the race – so max 2 upgrades per team.

We’ll keep it simple, so the choices will be to upgrade –
1. Aero (Downforce)
2. Suspension (Traction/mechanical grip)
3. Engine Unit (Power)
4. Electrical (MGU-K efficiency)
5. Engine Efficiency (Fuel consumption)

They will be small increments and I will do my utmost to make them identical in terms of performance advantage on a “neutral-handling” track.

This will require some intelligent decision making by the teams or even their team manager if it gets serious in-between races.

Firstly, do you like this idea?

Secondly, is there anyone out there willing to take the admin job on ‘cos, as I’m often told, this is too much of a one man show? If so, let yourself be known to me.

The responsibilities would be:-

1. Getting the upgrade requests from each team.
2. Some file-swapping in the vehicle data which I will make very simple.
3. Recreating each upgraded car’s data.acd (very simple task).
4. Distributing the changes.
5. Updating the data.acds on the server.

That’s it, I do the rest with the help of my stewarding team. Come one, this is our last chance to do something great with this league

Our 2019 champion, Mixa Mortiferum – was seemingly down-and-out after Monza, then brushed himself down and went on to win the league! Started simracing with us last season with the 2018 car and was immediately one of the fastest, but never quite got to grips with our tyre degs. Far more at-home with the 2019 car though and has matured very quickly over his two seasons with us.

Runner-up Urmas Riis, OK, if he hadn’t become so busy in his normal life, he would have walked it and as the real Clarkson would say (and no doubt our own as well), he’s probably the fastest driver “in the World”! Hope he comes back in 2020 as he has so much to offer and raises our game for sure.

Third place, Storm Cloud – champion last season and had a so-so run in Troutracing then, but this season “by his standards” it was the other way round. Has the experience advantage over Mixa, but the new kid has had a great run. Will be an interesting rivalry next year.

Other noteworthy achievements –

  • Seymohre – stuck-out a gruelling one-stop at Road America to beat the lot of us (including Urmas) fair-and-square. Race of the season.
  • Ali Gocmen – finally got the upper-hand on me, I simply couldn’t live with his pace and consistency. No longer a midfielder at all.
  • Pietrekk – solid start and slotted in straight away, can be a top-midfielder next season, maybe higher.
  • Nate, Shmourda & Dmitry – finally got some guys who drive well at the other end of the grid. We need to bring them more into the fold next year.

Thanks to all who helped make this a great season and stay-tuned for more information from myself and Albano for the New Year.
