It's very good to be back at GPL with a great mod in a great racetrack organized by such a great league! cool

There was no boring time in the race. Despite some spins and crashes, I managed to get the 2nd place after a great gentleman battle with Pedro.

Grats to Paul (happy to see Lancia 1-2) and finishers! Cu next! nacht

I thoroughly ebjoyed the challenge. freuen

Did 3 or 4 "halflaps" off-line just to come up with a sonsible gear-ratio and then it was already due time to go to the server.
I did well figuring out track/car combo and even time to improve the setup a Little bit.
With a 4-speed car I was sure about my fate cool
and so I was limping behind the rest but...
... I finished! Amazing. freuen

I think I learned a lot about "the nature of the beast" of the mod or at least the car - learning while driving the race, what a rush, driving on the edge.. and sometimes beyond... lachen
Interestingly enough I felt most insecure braking towards the hairpin. Instinctly even being easy on the Brakes, even though it wasn't an issue.
Eau Rouge was quite terrible. Car rarely stuck on the right hander and by the time I reached the top it felt like standstill and the gear or revolutions were in the basement.
Felt like I was losing 3 seconds there alone. lol. überrascht

A bit of a shame there was nobody in the same Chassis so I can compare how good/bad I did (like Eau Rouge)

So grats Podium and finishers. freuen

Spa67 suits the 55 mod perfectly. With not too much heavy braking it is possible to push hard for a whole lap.

I made a good clean lap in qualification which was good enough for pole just in front of Anders.

At the start I bogged down, and then ran wide at the first part of Eau Rouge almost clipping the barrier. These cars must be hard to get off the line because despite my mistakes I only dropped one place.
Anders was now in the lead so I set off after him.

At Blanchimont Anders went wide and dropped off the track into the scenery. Somehow he found a way back onto the track but was at the back at least a minute down, so now I am leading with Yannick behind.

Yannick made a mistake on lap 2 and was out leaving Pavel in 2nd and getting bigger in my mirrors.

The gap to Pavel was around a second. He was faster in some sections and me in others. Our overall pace was evenly matched but I made a mistake exiting Blanchimont and lost speed allowing Pavel to overtake.
Unfortunately Pavel was off line because of the overtake and he got a wheel on the grass approaching La Source hairpin. He lost the car and spun across the track in front of me and was out of the race.
Bad luck Pavel. That was a good fight until then.

From here on I had a big gap to Charles and Pedro who were having their own fight, so I saved the car and cruised home.



Zandvoort and Reims will be a different story. I will have to change my driving or run out of brakes at those tracks.


Thanks all for racing.
See you next.

Yesterday I had good chances to finish second. I didn't have pace to keep Paul behind, and Ferrari doesn't have power to run away from Lancia on long staraights. So second place could be enough for me. But...
Paul had bad exit from Blanchimont and I was able to make ap pass. But I stood on the left entering last tuleft turn before La Source. On exit car slide to the right and i hit grass and small pole. Those hit send car across the track into stone wall wütend
Anyway, grats to all finishers. Thanks Paul for nice race, again we were left alone infront.

See you next time.

Made a better start then Paul and was first into Eau Rouge. I saw Paul in my mirror close to the wall and loosing speed up the hill.
I got a small lead but Paul closed in quickly and was right behind me down the straight to Blanchimont.
There I made a mistake and went wide, down the banking and into the woods. I managed to find a way back on to the track, but I lost almost one minute doing it.
I also got an engine damage going off, according to GPLRA Mechanical report. So now I know why I couldn't get up to speed and gain on the guys in front of me.
Lonely race.

Congratulations to all the finishers.

Thx Clive for the info.
It wasn't the server.
I was downloading 50 GB on my race PC.
I guess that caused the glitches.
Sry guys! geschockt

I will install a little program on the new mini server that I have installed on my race PC and also on my old backup server that will optimize the network traffic.


I have installed the full version of this program on the new mini server:

cFosSpeed
Internet-Accelerator + Ping optimizer
cFosSpeed increases your throughput and reduces your Ping.

in the old days these accelerators would be very ineffective and sometimes even mess up connectivity but I'm sure that's a thing of the past. Hopefully... zwinkern
after some weeks, let me know about the (subjectiv) usefulness/effectivenes pls. gl.

They are 50 GB in size?! lachen zwinkern

@Fabian: I have bought cFosSpeed many years ago and use it since then on changing race PCs and server (for hosting GPL) and I have the impression it has a positive effect.
My GPLRACER6 servers (it where 2 PC systems over the years) had always cFosSpeed installed and running.
Even when I was downloading or uploading large files that needed a lot of bandwidth we had no lags when racing (of course not tested at a cup race - then I try to avoid big traffic zwinkern ).
Atm I am still optimizing the settings of cFosSpeed for GPL programs/port range on the new mini server.

Thanks for let me race.
The 55 cars are not my friends, but Spa fits very good.
I had much fun!

wow, these guardrails really are...soft. Yannick even driving straight through... geschockt

Modders forgive my criticism but on one car (sorry forgot which chassis), when you turn it the furthest, the arm of the driver is exactly horizontal and parallel to the screen - like a plank of wood. traurig
somehow I find it so irritating, I think it may be a reason not ever to drive that car .... someone pls fix it..! mit Augen rollen

*peace*
