Well...

Could have gone better and could have gone a lot worse...


Had a cautious start as I've only driven around 15 laps at most with the 956 (I don't enjoy driving cars that are far quicker than any other car) and found my way up the field.

With the last minute setup I threw on it (making use of my knowledge of the CK5 which I tried to help Dave with) I got the car to handle allright, the grip on power out of the turns were unreal...

Was looking at a top5 finish when Mike and Marc came together at the 2nd chicane, it looked like Mike would end up on the right side of the road so slowed and tried to sneak by to the left to find Mikes' car lag back onto the track and right in front of me leaving me nowhere to go and sadly I hit him.
Sorry Mike, I hope that your car wasn't damaged by that contact Sad

Drove back to the pits making an assesment of how the car was behaving and fixed the body only to get the front hood and clip put back onto the car.

The Joest crew did a good job and I put my head down.

I've not driven any GroupC car that hard before but the car took it with relative ease, had a couple of moments but nothing that was close to ending the race.

After a lot of work, I got up to 7th place, I'd consider that a good salvage and payback to the pitcrew for their hard work with the car Smile


Thank you to those I had battles with and sorry to anyone I held up unlapping myself or passing or lapping Embarassed

I hope to see you all later, apart from the crash the event was pretty enjoyable.

so yeah, we're f*cked in the rotary powered cars

Ah ok, that's the reason all the bad rotary cars were 10 Km/H faster than me lol!

At least it was not a complete lonely race for me, but in the end a was no match for anyone.
Only Jason did struggle a lot more.

Thanks for the TV Coverage, my friends enjoyed the race!!! :clap:

Well what can I say, I was the Slowest of the Slow cars.

As Dylan pointed out, these Rotaries have no business at this track, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the same for the next race at Avus as well. There is just no top speed to them, and my Top speed was a good 10 mph SLOWER than the rest of the Rotaries.

Here's hoping that a later track is better suited to this car.

On the flip side, I DID finish and I DID score some points, so Both Missions Accomplished for this race.

Kudos to everyone who lapped me, all went well for the most part. I will say that some of you need to wait about a heart beat or 3 longer before merger back in front of a lapped car, Jose?(I think, it was a Martini Lancia) cut across my nose in the Ost Kurve, and you may have actually touched me, I'm not sure. Just something to keep in mind for the future.

Congrats Yves and Richard on your Wins.

@ Simon Wattman: very sorry for our contact, i just didnt get it turned enough inside. my sincerest apologies.

@ David Jundt: really really really fun racing with you! thank you for the good time!

@ Dylan Canton: thanks for the help getting me up to speed, i still have some work to catch up, but you really helped out.

in the end turned out really fun in the mix with david and matthias, thanks for letting me run, really sorry for the incident with simon. hopefully it helped to fill up the grid, would be my pleasure to do the same next race.

Pas de problèmes Mike, je suis déçu, mais incident de course !
:doh:
J'ai été étonné de la qualité des réparations, ce fût long mais éfficace ,90 sec plus un moteur qui ne repart pas....au moins 30 sec de plus !
je repart 25 ième donc plus beaucoup d'ambition pour la course, mais je reviens sur des concurrents,
je pense que je suis 15 ième lorsque je prend tout seul le mur en béton de la chicane, moteur arrêté et plus moyen de repartir et out !

Mais je me suis bien amusé, bon chrono de qualif et bon set-up (merci Phil)

A la prochaine

Marcus

No apology owed to me! I was parked there because I hit Marc so it was my fault. I thought you had made it through but now I understand why all 4 sides were yellow lol!

Well, what can i say... I hate disconnections in warmup lap. All those hours of practice with that italian crapwagon are in vain again. On the other hand, thanks for excellent TV coverage and an exciting race to watch :top:

Une victoire ici  :first: , sur la Lancia, plutôt une bonne surprise !

Qualif conforme à mes attentes, proche de mon meilleur temps.

Au départ, José, sans doute en sous-régime, ralentit un peu la file de droite. La famille Plaçais, sur la file en gauche, en profite lâchement pour prendre la tête  :first:  :second:  !
Je tente l'aspi sur Jean-marie avant la 1ère chicane, mais je n'insiste pas au freinage.
José reprend son bien après la deuxième chicane. Je le laisse aller s'arsouiller avec Jean-Marie, de toute façon, je suis incapable de les suivre.

S'arsouiller... mais surtout s'éclater  :aie:  dans la 2ème chicane lors du 3ème tour.... je me faufile au milieu des épaves, capots, et autres ailerons pour prendre la tête.

Après, ce fut de la pure gestion de course, en maîtrisant la conso (il a fallu baisser la pression du turbo pendant une bonne dizaine de tours), gérer avec prudence les dépassements (merci à tous ! :top: ), et surtout la fantastique remontée d'un Gérard déchaîné (un tour de plus l'aurait vu vainqueur, je pense.) Bravo Gérard, quel début de saison !

Bref, j'ai réussi à tirer mon épingle du jeu en privilégiant, comme toujours, la régularité et une relative prudence pour éviter les fautes.

Ce sera autre chose à l'Avus où les 956 vont vraisemblablement reprendre leur bien !

@Philou: Un petit truc, quand tu prend un tour a quelqu'un, et que tu n'es pas en bagarre directe, il vaut mieux attendre une ligne droite pour dépasser quand tu n'es pas tout proche au moment du freinage. Surtout sur un freinage comme celui de la première chicance. La j'ai freiné comme d'habitude puisque je te voyais assez loin, sauf que tu es passé quand même et du coup j'ai perdu 2-3 secondes dans l'affaire alors que toi tu n'as rien gagné :smil20: Ce qui est dommage c'est que j'étais en bagarre directe pour la 1ere place en Junior avec Richard. Enfin bon c'est pas très grave, mais pour la prochaine fois essaye de t'en souvenir stp Wink

Martin: C'est mal tombé, si je ne te dépassais pas, je perdais du temps, si je te dépassais, tu perdais du temps... C'est difficile d'apprécier çà sur le moment au 19 ème tour où j'arrive sur des voitures plus lentes plusieurs fois par tour parfois. Je pense avoir pris la meilleure option en te laissant assez de place il me semble et sans te faire prendre trop de risque. Je ne voulais pas perdre trop de temps sur Gérard, j'étais moi-aussi en bagarre après tout...
Pour finir, il me semble que là où tu perds le plus de temps sur Richard, c'est à la sortie de la deuxième chicane, après mon dépassement, où tu sors dans le sable et en effet cela te pénalises beaucoup, mais je n'y suis pour rien...
Il faut toujours chercher à s'améliorer, je ferai encore plus attention les prochaine-fois Wink

@ David Jaques no problem, that's what teammates are for   Wink  

not sure if staff is gonna like me for this...

Wankel Cup

standings:

1.     David Jundt #16 Mazda 717C - 10 Points
2.     Dylan Canton #67 Lola-Mazda T616 - 8 Points
-3.   Jason Fitch #62 Harrier-Mazda RX83C - 2 points
-3.   Ivan Daniel #68 Lola-Mazda T616 - 2 Points

seeing as there are 4 cars, points go as followed: 6-4-2-1
not sure if i should add the one-of drivers (David Jaques in this case), or just leave it to the full-time drivers

@Matthias Weber, your car seems to have a BMW L4, and not a rotary engine. That is why i didn't include you

If you want to keep a check Dylan, you can, but it wont receive any ratification from HSO Wink

Matthias did well in the little Stehmo, I can see him doing well at the airport tracks. :top:

Yeah i know, i would have been glad to use a rotary engine in Hockenheim cheers

Cannot understand, why my naturally aspirated engine with the best sound in the field could generate that less horsepower scratch :aie:

I really thought you had a rotary, with the noise and the (lack of) speed

4th! Pretty good with this car. Highest top speed of all I think, but still felt so sluggish compared with the 956. The Zakspeed is just too soft and have too little downforce. But, it is kinda safe. Glad to be the best non-956, non-Lancia in the field.

Did not really enjoy battling with Claudio, but I respect his sincerety about his drive. Was disappointed that he crashed out, but not really surprised.

Gratz to the podium guys!

Jacob I hate it I had that ctd on lap 3-I think you and I were fairly even here and could have had a fun race....

Next time perhaps..... :drink:

Wankel cup, awesome. There was a race team called Wankel Team Racing at GPRO (online racing management game).



Great video again. Boy did I screw up when I hit Marc. I did not realize how far we were down the track and backed off too late. I also locked up due to crossing the dirt. Horrible driving by me. Took two others out. Uggh, makes me sick.

I recall passing the Two leader crash aftermath. Wow that was some high drama there in the replay.

Really enjoyed the footage of Richard and Martin nose to tail. Superb.

Video just missed my favorite moment when I caught David and two other class C cars in several bad spots and had to work through. They were passing each other while I was trying to get through but not slow them down as I could see it was all for position. I was trying like crazy to catch Dave Simmons in the other CK5. I almost caught you Dave!

Same thing as the fall 2015 event-run low graphics and you can't distinguish headlamps on or off easily at this venue...at least I caught it before lap five...

Ça effectivement c'est complètement de ma faute on est d'accord Smile

C'est juste que Richard et moi on était l'un derrière l'autre au contact et que sur ce genre de circuit si on perd l'aspi c'est très compliqué de revenir, surtout à voiture égale. Enfin bon de toute façon je suis revenu sur Richard, j'ai tenté de le doubler et je me suis loupé, donc ça n'a pas changé grand chose :D
