In total it was a great race for me finishing 3rd :champ:

This time, my quali performance was not so bad with 11th without a real quali set. I made some progress in the first two laps, but was hit in the last chicane which cracked my right rear suspension. Sometimes it feels like bumper car to drive in this series. These cars are too fragile to overshoot the braking point and lean on another car or divebomb into a corner. Hope we all (me too) can improve for Round 5.

From then on it was a difficult race with a loose rear end, but i could climb up to 3rd and was looking then on the laptimes behind (Jacob, Petr) and drove constantly same laptimes to be safe and not risk a spin. In the end David Sabre spun, so i was very close to 2nd. I made a move after the long backstraight, but i cut the track too much under braking so i hand back the place to David.

Well done all finishers:conduit:

Yeah, Rondeau feels like an elephant riding a unicycle. Horrible on brakes, tail heavy like Kardashians and it just won't turn. Richard was able to chase down 1,5s in the last sector and pull an incredible outside pass around the long right hander. Anyway, hats off to you. Maybe you found the sweetspot and set it up properly, maybe you're simply a better driver

Yep, bloody stupid......again..... Knowing I would not be able to see a brake marker, I did not have the presence of mind to keep my distance.....I had no intention of "making up places".

No worries, shit happens. But it's actually easier with these cars, as you can see brake lights of the guys ahead.

So I did finish this race.

Too bad I received a Stop&Go for avoiding Patrick Gibelin, even though I handed the position back Sad

Looks like I could have put my Harrier ahead of him and Konstantin.

Thanks David will look into that. :top: On the race side,i had a good qualy,then the problems started,as soon as i got on the grid the engine would stall and the engine starter button would not work,after a restart of race sorry for that,the same happened again soon as i went on grid engine stalled and could not restart it scratch grats to all the podiums :clap:

P6 is ok for me. I simply struggle to control my car under braking. Suspect
First Lap mistake again, because i had to avoid contact with Yves, then my URD just freaked out again.

Sorry for making your Battle for P1 in Class B more difficult @Yves+Richard :smil20:

But at least 1 Point on my 100th race here. :flag:

Amazing Grid with a funny first start Laughing
Thanks again to Pascal for covering this race.

Je me suis arrêté quelques tours après car la voiture ne tournait plus très bien, mais je n'avais pas anticipé de ne pas mettre d'essence et pas changer les pneus... Il y en avait pour 3 minutes aux stands, j'ai préféré abandonner...

A la prochaine  Wink

Well... That could have gone a bit better...

During Qualifying I took the fuel out of the car and made a few small tweaks, PB'd by almost 3 seconds...
Still got to start outside of the top 20 scratch

Oh well, was confident in my race setup, it had worked well during the few practice laps I did run...

The Race got underway and I took it very easy. After the backstraight I found my way up the inside of Michal after he ran into trouble in the following turns but then I felt like I was the reason he ended up on the grass coming out of Bomb Hole so I backed off and in the end took to straight lining the ending chicane to redress the position...

Came back on track in last position and after that I tried to make my way up the field without impeeding anyone elses race too much.

Overall succeeded in that but unfortunately the time lost redressing the position and getting back up the field those who got through the opening laps without too many issues was far up the road.

Did what I could and on the 3rd to last lap made my way up to Juha's gearbox after he had a moment in Turn2. I followed him for a full lap and came to the conclusion that The Esses was where I had my best shot at getting by and dove to the inside of the left under the bridge and somehow managed to stay to the left and then I hope I left enough room on the inside for the right hander and I was up in 11th.

Managed to stay ahead for the final lap and came home, a slightly dissapointing, 11th place Overall, not sure what that is in Class...


Thanks to those I had a battle with and thank you also to Ray who opened the inside nicely for me in Riches when I want to get by to get closer to Juha late in the race, not many drivers in any series I've race in, would do that even if they were having fuel and car issues :drink:

Another race down, on a circuit I don't enjoy (though the old Snetterton is miles and miles better than the new layout), and had some fun in battles but mainly a frustrating race as I could have been fighting for 4th had not the opening lap gone as it did...

Cheers and see you all at our next venue and this weekend for the 500 where I'll be in the comms booth yet again.

Please, need solution, after my PC upgrade al races and test after upgrade was technicaly OK, FPS 60 (Vertical synchro ON) on NVIDIA control panel set the adaptive option )

In quaLli was all OK FPS rock solid all the time, on first race start before reset OK but then in final race start something weird happened , FPS counter showed 64 but there was big stutter so driving was n so good , i waited for end of some opening laps if it will better after cars spread but no bettering here, so i went to pits , hit alt TAB , look in CPU , it was on 2% swithed back and all was OK now, game runs superbly , but when after some laps there was leader lapping me the situation repeated, stutters again, so on straight with o cars around quickly ALT TAB to WIN and back and all was OK againn but some laps later again,

what is wrong ? what to solve?

temperatures was OK

Silly question, maybe, but have you install the 4GB patch ?

rFactor is designed to only use 2gb, since it is an old game and specs were much less then.

It will enable rFactor to use more of your computing power.

So yeah, I'd give it a try.

Furthermore, it could help in the option menu to allowed the game to make only 15 to 20 cars appearing. With more than that, lagging could be a real problem specialy for the start or when everybody is in the same part of the track.

Indeed, the 32 bits app can adressed a maximum of 3Go in the RAM.
About your stutter problem, try to disable the vertical sync.

on one guide i read that it is good to set this this way so the comp dont waste time to calculate more screens and there is time for CPU to othe tasks and the display shows only the 60 FPS, Nvidia have option Adaptive sync when in situations where the system cannot calc 60 FPS it is working in lowered rate without stutters, in Assetto corsa it works OK and i night test for 1000km kyalami it worked well too, Snetterton was 1st case of this proble, the RAM is probably the cause

I plan to switch to 64 bits W7 but i am afraid of drivers for the red MOMO and other aplications (nostromo pad, DXtweak atc)

It's only my case, but I never had problem to run 32 bits app (software, drivers) on my win 7 64 bits.
It always managed well the app 32 bits. There's no problem to run 32 bits on a system 64 bits.
Altough there are 2 ways to install the softwares in windows 64 bits:
- c:/program files (x86)/ --> for the 32 bits app.
- c:/program/ --> for the 64 bits app.

It's also already included in the gtpc download. You just need to extract it.
