    Steward's Comments:
    1960 was the first year a Corvette raced at Le Mans, and one of the entries won its class. Corvette of course has a long and storied racing legacy, and many 24 Hours of Le Mans victories. This week's race is a tribute to both the current race and the past heritage. Credit to MadMax86 for the combo idea. I never would have put these 2 together, but it fits like a glove.

    Viewing your Time Splits:



    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay Theater' option.
    • While Viewing Your Replay, Choose the "Live Timing Monitor" To View Your Sector Times
    • To post your T1 and T2 Splits, simply post the sector times that are shown in the live timing monitor.
    • The WRS Fetchbot has been updated and will now add your splits together!

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:




    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if all four tires would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • If track contact cannot be 100% determined, then consider it dirty.


    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track.
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Save your best lap/ghost replay



    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on MSN or via other private conversation methods
    ):




    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime



    The following information can be discussed in this thread
    :




    • T1 through T5 Times
    • Any settings discussion.


    Number of splits: 5

    This car's a handful, one of my least favorite in the stable! I need a week off anyway. :)

    The car is a bit notorious, but it works well on this combo.

    Try driving in cockpit view, I normally don't like it, but it's a thing of beauty in this car.

    I might try that just for kicks as I owned a 59 Vette back in the day.

    I can tell this is going to be a frustrating but very fun week! After about 5 minutes of attempting T1 I am annoyed already with the in-game penalty system, some rumbles you can run on fine, other its reds you... pick one or the other not both PD!

    But very fun car to drive :D

    ---------
    After several red laps finally managed a clean one, loads of time still out there

    Dammit Kevin... The first time we use the full La Sarthe and I'm injured. :ouch:

    The missus said I could have a short session today if I wore my knee brace. Its very restrictive with hinges set to only allow 15 degrees of movement but I can drive, just a bit clumsy on the brakes. Anyway I chose to run this instead of the HSV and managed 3 and a half laps before it started hurting too much just pressing the brake pedal. Luckily 2 of them were clean too. :p

    38.501
    41.742
    33.954
    27.978
    34.932

    Nowhere near the limit but its tricky on the brakes. Fun combo though... I can't see me managing many more laps than 3 or 4 here and there if I'm lucky.

    again, only a couple of clean laps so far. So hard not to be cautious in the last two sectors for fear of binning a good lap.
    Great fun though :tup:

    Tried to work around my braking handicap by adjusting the load cell and found a bit better consistency but I still can't manage more than few laps before I have to move to relax the muscles around my knee. A good step today though:

    38.298
    41.178
    33.779
    27.951
    34.521

    Lost time in the braking zone for Mulsanne and was a little slow to get back on the power. Other than that, not too bad at this point. I don't feel like I'm finding the limit yet though.... I'm banned from driving tomorrow after being allowed to run tonight so another bash on Thursday. :mischievous:

    After 8 laps with a few not red :yuck:. This is really a fun combo to drive. Get some time to relax and enjoy the scenery.

    Man, I shouldn't have tried this combo right after spending time on the current seasonal TT in the X2010 prototype (which I finally golded). I have the impression that the Corvette just won't turn!

    I'll wait a day or two before I get back to it...

    Damnit chris take it easy or something, give the rest of us a chance! :D nice work so far

    --

    on reflection, are you sure your T2 time wasn't a typo Chris? :lol: I could easily see a tenth or 2 on my time, but .572.... its 2 (3) corners and a straight, that's a mega time if it is genuine!

    some new splits from me, all I can manage tonight

    Can't run this TT anymore. On Sunday, I'm leaving and I'll be away from home until the following Friday. That also probably means I'll only have 3 days to run the next TT as well. :scared: Good luck guys. :cheers:
