** Pit Entry Speeding Rules:  Will be NOT enforced!!! We will only use it where there is a disadvantage for those in the earlier pit boxes. I have tested this at full pelt and it is a lot more stable auto-braking than it used to be.

Optional “Intelliboost” app >> http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/intelliboost.17896/

This app is essentially a macro which reads a table of start-end points and automatically presses the KERS button during each start-end interval. You have to assign the “b” button on your keyboard to KERS and tick the box that says “Combine with keyboard input” then update the empty file the app creates for each track/car you use. You edit the tables manually with Notepad/++, however the app aids you by telling you the values of the current points as you drive around the track. It only works in “Charging” mode, so what you are effectively doing is creating your own alternate boost map to the existing “Top Speed”, “Overtake” maps etc.

I have also modded this for my own use, here is the alternate .py file to replace in the main app Intelliboost.py - Bobby version (7 downloads). The main difference with my version is that it works the opposite way round ie: it works in every mode apart from “Charging”. With this version what you are effectively doing is using an existing mode and adding some KERS at strategic points in the lap. For me this is more useful, but it does soak up a lot of charge, so use sparingly!

  1. Well, I thought that my version of Intelliboost app had given me an advantage last week which I took gratefully, but it seems the “Captain” isn’t quite so “Slow” in this car as there is nothing to gain boosting at Silverstone.

    Soon be back in midfield, but enjoying it whilst I can.

  2. Well, I think we’ve got a great league car. Well done to Bobby, because his version is so much better than the Kunos version. There’s a bit of room for different strategies and at least at Silverstone we couldn’t max it out on the electric or the tyres.

    Had an absorbing race long fight with Jan. I was fine on the softs and pitted on 7 for hards. The undercut worked except after my stop I did a silly half spin but then Jan returned the favour a little later. He overtook soon after but I thought, “That’s fine, he’s on mediums I’ll just follow until his tyres give out.” Problem is that Jan is unbelievably quick, so I had to burn my tyres and electric just to keep close. His tyres did wear, but when I was launching an attack near the end a yellow flag came out so I let off in a bad place, had a snap and ran off track. Caught up through the last lap but not close enough.

    Should be a fun season. Nice pace from my team mate Bobby!

  3. What I really like about no refuelling and starting on the softest compound is it allows you to think on your feet.

    In practice I was burning up the front left tyre on the softs within a few laps, so decided I was going to 2-stop and get onto mediums very early on.

    In race I got held up a bit in traffic at the start and realised that the tyres were not bad at all, so once I got clear I tried backing off a fraction in Copse and Stowe and the tyre kept going. Came in finally on lap 11 for a 1-stop.

  4. It was much tougher than I expected. From Spain I knew that my tyres are wearing rapidly but i also thought that i solved that problem in testing.

    Anyway, great fun “battling” against Storm Cloud :) but I need some more testing in Spa to prevent it.
