I want to create this single event at Bridgehampton, as I think it´s a very fine and fun racetrack. Lately having much fun in the C7R and classics, but haven´t desided what car should be run at the event.
Aim is to have a full grid of cause, and run 2x15 min races, the usual sprint stuff.
The catch is, that I want to cater for our US friends, as I´ve been running with the author Lilski and a few other guys lately. So it has to be a weekend event, preferably Saturday, Sunday as backup. Racestart could be 19-21pm UTC.
The "Historic Champs" is just a label, could be a recurring event using only historic tracks or something.
I also hope the an ALOOG server could host this event.
ok I just realised utc is gmt looks like we could participate as well at that time. if you would rather host on a different server thats fine but your welcome to use 1 and hopefully our regulars will join. historics would have my vote, I dont really know that track but I imagine they would suit it
Any interest in doing this? I´ve been waiting to put something up till Riverside had an update, which didn´t happen until the holidays. Yesterday VIR was released, and although it´s not a closed track like Bridge and RIR, all 3 of them were build in 1957. So they´re all historic, besides being US tracks. I´m leaning towards this:
Thinking that we could use those 3 tracks, but we need some opinions on what cars should be running.
IER car pack is a great option, I also think it makes sense going full mod with this event.
Race format: 20min qual, 2 x 20min race (roughly 11-14 laps on these tracks). Keep it as a fun-event rather than point/ballast/penalty event.
your still welcome to host it on server 1 if you want to Tberg
I figure there´s so many aloog servers empty, that maybe I could just use aloog-2 as I´ve "used" before and is now running RIR. But yeah, since aloog-1 thread on AC forum is the one aloog-thread that doesn´t die, we might as well use it to get the most attention. Seems the regulars are there anyway, more than here.
Atm, I´ll wait for both VIR and RIR updates, soon coming. I´m not sure about the cars yet, there´s mixed feelings about the IER car pack, but it´s also being updated soon. A lot of the regular US guys likes the IER pack, and since it´s US tracks, it´ll suit the event somehow. On the other hand, as I talked to Andy about, historic events calls for both historic tracks and cars. I´m thinking about making singlemake events of all 3 races, different car/cars for each track. There´s no doubt the VIR+IER is popular too, so maybe with the updates, this is one of the comboes. For RIR, I am hoping the Porche pack soon releases and includes a classic racecar that fits. For Bridge, any classic is a handful and quite fun, it could go from L49 to RS1600. It would just be fun to use cars within the time era of the track no matter what.

TDS: very hot day and OC cpu went bananas and froze the pc :-( turned off oc for good) dont want a 747 turbine fan for it to not crash on hot days, and the fps gain overclocking is very very little something like 5 fps. not worth it
