View Full Version : Race 10 - Kyoto GP Long Rev

7th July 2008, 11:07
The final round of this season will be an interesting endurance race on KY GP Long Rev using LX6. It will also start 30min earlier due to its duration. Special rules:

Since the pit entry uses a noncontinuous line, it is only mandatory in case of cars next to or behind you (we recommend using turn signals to indicate intentions) - nevertheless this rule doesn't relieves you of the responsibility to use common sense and prudence.
Crossing the restricted area on the S/F straight for normal racing is not allowed unless you have to swerve for an accident or pass cars after the start (first lap only).

Track: KY3R
Car: LX6
Qualifying: 25min

I can't race this sunday because I'll have guests at home that evening.

So my lxo season is over, thanks for the very good organisation of this cup :thumb:

I got a nasty virus on my computer :(
I'll try my best to sort it out before the race & to get some laps in, but otherwise I'll have to miss it...I hope not though...

Its infected with some Worm that revoked my admin capabilities and filled my system with over 400 other nasties like hijackers & trojans. Not good.

13th July 2008, 13:37
i hope we see most of our racers for the last race of this LXO season :)

taylor: did you try to boot into safe mode and see if you can get rid of the problem there?

jwardy: the team standing isn't official, we received a notice from people who want to join it before the cup started, I guess PM forgot about that.
edit: sorry that was me wrong there, seems like antt dropped out of the championship so PM hasn't enough drivers to compete in the team standings.

taylor: did you try to boot into safe mode and see if you can get rid of the problem there?

Yeah I had to use Safe Mode to use the cmd prompt to begin to rectify the damage...
It's a mess at the moment so as it stands right now I doubt I'll make it this evening, as much as I want to.

But there's still a chance I guess, although its over 4 1/2 hours into scanning & nowhere near done...

Anyway I'll say thanks now to yourself, ussbeethoven and to the drivers for making the league what it was.
Thanks, I enjoyed the races I was in. You should do it again :thumb:

13th July 2008, 16:26
Yep, big thanks for organizing the league. Great, clean, friendly league. Loved the racing :)

Sorry but I won't be making it to this race because my cousin and aunt came from France friday and I gotta stay with them a lil ;S.

thanks for participating to all the drivers, i had lots of fun and learned a lot from the fast guys too. was a pleasure to race all of you, i do hope we see each other now and then in our Wednesday volvolandia events or for the next season :)

13th July 2008, 20:51
Great race, half in the way i thought i lost, but my mechanics have done excellent job and that put me ahead DeSouza and Jward. Really great finish after hour and half and also great finish of this league.
Very well organised, thanks Trio, just shame i missed first half of this season.
And also congrats to Troy. ;)
See you next time. :)

Thanks for the races everyone, really enjoyed! And thanks to Trio and troy for the top organization! And congrats to the winner, fully deserved. :)

Now to my race: I had a not so good start, and it took me too long to get in a decent pace. After J Myster passed me things start to work again. Had a scary moment when I dived in T1 and he was spinning there, but I could avoid it.

Jwardy was coming for me breaking his pb all the time, I thought it was better to let him pass so I didn't lose much time - I was chasing Kid, who was begining to appear in my sight by then. Hopefully they'd start fighting wich would help me get closer. Well I don't know if jwardy was so much faster or anything, but Kid didn't hold him for long as well.

After a few laps I caught Kid, and was able to pass on the right hander leaving the oval part, and then started to race as fast as I could because my pitstop was near. After the pit, I came back just behind Myster, but I was no match for him. I kept pushing hard to hopefully get ahead of Kid again when he stoped. But somehow his stop was really fast and he got back just in front of me.

So now we were 3 laps untill the finish line, Myster ~5s ahead, Kid ~1.5s ahead, and jwardy coming behind me again pretty fast. On lap 31 I was able to to get close to Kid, but made two mistakes on lap 32 and the gap went back to 1.6s. So, in a desperate last try, I could cut another second from the gap but obviously that was not enough to gain any positions.

So, after one hour and a half of racing I finished 3s behind Myster, 0.6s behind Kid, and 4s ahead of jwardy. Yes, that was intense.

I want next season now!! :D

Well what a season.

Start was a total washout. DC in quali and race. And I liked the combo. Then it was an OK first time racing the LX6. Blowing up my HD ruined the 3rd race. On the oval I did quite good as I actually wasn't even last. Work schedule ruined the RX race. Stupid pit people (butter fingers on the arrow keys) ruined the 6th race. Races 7, 8 and 9 were good. Got meself some points. The last race was on the slow side. But I'll put that on not practising enought.

Thanks for my first ever league. Hopefully I can take part in the second season too.

14th July 2008, 11:07
Perfect season, perfect league. I would like to thanks all drivers and organizers for great races and administration. It was nice time with you guys. I will definitelly take part in next season, if there'll be chance.

PS: Thanks for sharing setups, it helped a lot.
