Hello folks. I'm a bit in two minds about GTS, with its emphasis on racing motors with downforce. However, I thought I'd set up a little event, to see how it might go. The event will take place like this: The cars are, Mercedes AMG SLS GT3 '11 or Nissan GT-R Nismo Base model '13. Both stock, oil change allowed. The choice as to which car to use is up to each individual. **Spanner in works time. To bring a bit of variety, I've added the Camaro SS Touring Car '10, and Mazda RX7 Touring Car. The RX7 is slightly slower than the others, but it's lighter too, and should compensate with better tyre management. **Even more variety! The Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV EVO Vision, and Chevrolet Camaro LM Race Car have been added. The Camaro is giving me a real dilemma now over which car to use Still more motors available folks... The GT500 Base models of the Nissan GT-R and the Toyota Supra. Both come within the parameters, and I prefer them to the GT3 cars. But, variety is the spice of life (or at least that's what I tell the Mrs). The tyres will be, S/H for the twenty minutes of qualifying, and then S/H and S/M to be used through the race. Which tyre you start on will be your choice, but you must use both during the race. This will be achieved by the room settings being for quali, followed by a 1 lap race at first. The 'race' will be a parade for one lap, with everyone finishing in their qualifying positions. Then, the person who qualified last stays on 100% power, the person one step ahead sets their restrictor to 97%, the racer one step further ahead sets their restrictor to 94%, and so one, until we reach the person set to 82%. Everyone ahead of this person also sets their restrictor to 82%. Your qualifying position counts towards your final finishing place. Therefore, the person on 100% power will have the chance to climb up through the field, whilst the person who gets pole has to fight off those around who have more power, in defence of their leading position. The race will be over 23 laps. My testing indicates that, at full power, fuel will last for twelve laps only, and that S/M are about 2.5-3.0 seconds quicker than S/H. These factors bring all sorts of tactical questions into play. Stretch your fuel on the S/M and do one stop? Do two S/M legs? Which tyre to start on? I'm hoping that the tactical side of things, along with effective handicapping, will mean that the final result is in doubt until the lady who ate all the pies gives us the full benefit of her vocal training. The room settings will have fast depletion, weak penalties, light damage, real slipstream and track edge grip, ABS and driving line allowed. So, there you go, pretty plain OP, brilliant race (I hope) Cheers, Zo.
