  1. We shoulda done this track yonks ago it’s a great mod and properly suited to F1. What a contrast to Zandvoort in terms of top speed – need to dig out the Forli Ring setup again.

    • Well I have been banging on this tracks for yonks. This is a great car for it though and the straights demand a slippery setup from what I’ve tried. Makes for some really cool corners.

    • My view is that this is the best car we’ve ever had and were it not for my move I could have fettled the tyres mid-season to make that 0-stop more of a threat and the softs a more useful option.

      Sadly our numbers suggest I’m wrong.

    • Yep, with your modifications it looks very promising, but mostly cause it gives less lag and better fps :) . Sad we’re leaving this super car :(

      Hope you don’t forget to remove some of the settings in setup this time, although wish you remove all of them :P

    • The setup issue is something I’l have to compromise on as this is a bit of a joint-venture with the Trout guys and they might be keen on keeping the options. I will force the debate though as it is annoying when folk spend hours tuning the damper heights to gain an extra 10th – or lowering ride height to capitalise on a glitch in the aero curves etc.

  2. So Monilith won by 1 point :D congrats!Also congrats to Elgurke for your first win.
    Whole seasson was ridden with overheated tyres,maybe thats why i didnt liked this car.Anyway was fun with all of you,and hope to see bigger grid next seasson.

  3. the qualification just before the race are very distructive for the start of the race, starting directly from quali to a full tank car and hard tyres makes it very difficult to keep the car on track on first corners. and that ruined my race which ended right in the second corner when I brake late and did go out and got damage, after that a f… lonely race. would been a good race as the pace was good.

  4. Really fun race. Dog slow in the first stint but I figured the car would come back to me and undercutting Monolith worked well as he was still bringing his tyres in when he ran wide and I slipped past.

    Then after Elgurke! It became apparent the following lap that he wasn’t stopping and I love these races with strategies converging. I enjoy both sides of that – when you’re leading you have to keep it smooth and you’re working out every lap if the gap is big enough. Chasing though, like today, is more fun because you’re putting the pressure on.

    Couldn’t catch him, so great win Elgurke. Was a bit off my pace today, so it was a shame we couldn’t get at least a couple of corners at it. Thanks to everyone for another good season in a tricky car – despite the lack of numbers there was always something going on but hopefully the RSS car will be more popular.

  5. Great race for me, but got outsmarted by the Germans again! Thought I was the one being clever starting out on the Softs for 11 laps. In retrospect, should have done both stints with softs but the money was definitely on Elgurke’s strategy, so big congrats to him for keeping such amazing pace on a single set of tyres. I said from the start that I wanted the car to be able to do no stops and finally got that wish, but I wasn’t the one smart enough to be doing it.

    Big congrats to zee other German too, great season and really got this car working well. A big surprise too – the SF71’s tyres clearly held back his true pace last season.

    Another congrat to Pensionisti, stuck it out and now has the pace – just need to find consistency in the race.

  6. Still feels pretty crazy to have won the championship. Storm Cloud has been amazing through the entire season and I have to say I’ve always felt like he’s the quicker driver and that I’ve simply got lucky to profit from a bad race he had in the beginning of the season. When you look at it I only ever won when there has been something going wrong on his end. When we were actually batteling on track he has always come out on top. So I really want to pay a great respect to him. I hope we can a fight like this season again in the upcoming one. It’s been a real challenge and just so much fun.

    I’ve taken the liberty of writing my highlights of the season or a season review. It’s a bit of a read, so I just hope anyone actually has the nerve to read it all :D

    My first highlight would have to be the season opener in Monza simply for taking my first pole and race win here in Flag-to-Flag.
    Magny Cours has been an incredibly track to drive and the race after a botched quali was a real thriller and I’m sure it’ll be one of those races I’ll never forget. It’s one of the few races I actually felt a bit quicker than StormCloud, but he didn’t make any mistakes and since he had more top speed I never saw a chance to overtake him. I must have spend the entire race between 0.5 to 1.5 seconds behind him. I still wish I could have somehow won this one, but then again StormCloud also very much deserved it.
    Then Suzuka is definitely in there too. It’s always been my favourite track so it’s meant quite a bit to me by default I guess. Winning the race was great, but it’s gone over with a bit of a foul taste. I spent the greatest part of the first stint behind StormCloud despite beeing faster than him until I could finally overtake him shortly before the pitstop. After the stop when I was in front he suddenly a more pace than me. It ended with us crashing badly and him as he put it “disqualifying himself from the race”. It still feels like he should have probably won this one.
    Brands Hatch was in my mind a very important race for the championship. I genuinely felt like I should have won this one. I took pole again and had been able to defend at the start aswell, unlike to the prior race in Jerez. I actually practiced the starts for Brands Hatch as I had realised I was giving away pole positions at the start habitually. I seemed to have the pace and had been able to build a small gap to StormCloud until that whole Oculus malfunction drama that dropped my so low in my car I could’nt look out of it anymore. After that I was still going to fight for the championship, but I had actually lost the hope to actually make it happen as I didn’t think the last three races would be particualary strong tracks for me.

    Road America. I had honestly written it off until I saw that somehow during the race I had better pace than StormCloud. I could scrape off a tenth each lap in the beginning and more and more as the race progressed. Slowly it clicked and I thought to myself, holy shit I might actually still have a shot at this. I think I overtook StormCloud on lap 10 and immediately built a small gap. He pitted a lap earlier than I did but my tyres still felt fine so I wasn’t too bothered by it. When I came in a lap later and had a long stop because it was repairing damage I got from a little scrap with KostChurch on the opening lap (I had forgotten about it during the race as I didn’t notice anything of it) I was surprised to still come out ahead. I actually couldn’t believe it. It was really getting in my head and I was frantically trying to check the gap to StormCloud and trying to understand why ELgurke was still ahead I missed a breaking point. StormCloud promptly caught up, I tried to defend the inside going into the long right-hander which only resulted in colliding with StormCloud who could carry on unaffected while I ended up in the gravel. Once again it was all over, StormCloud would take the champioship. Until I realised I had MUCH more pace than StormCloud and that I could actually still have a shot at it and that I might be able to close the about 15 second gap we had between us now. In the end I didn’t make it, I only closed the gap down to I think 1.7 seconds. It still felt amazing to close it down this far. And a few laps before the race ended I had realised ELgurke has the best chances of winning the race with some outstanding tyremanagement and a nostop strategy. I just didn’t know what it would do to the championship. So when we finished I didn’t know if I had won the championship or not. For the team and I believe for the season it has been the perfect finish. I guess StormCloud might disagree, but the way the race played out I think it has been an incredible show.

    Thanks to everyone who participated and made this so much fun. And of course a special thanks to StormCloud who made this season one of the best times I ever had since I’ve been simracing.

    • Some great races this season! Magny Cours stands out because it’s such a great track and we had a good battle there. Looking forward to more racing next year and hopefully a few more on the grid.
