"Carburetion Day"


"Carburetion Day" - Indy 500 - [15th & 18th May] Round3

PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS UPDATE.
--> INDY UPDATE <--

"Carburetion Day" is the name of the last official practice before the Indy 500. The name originally came from the fact that it was the final session where teams could tune their carburetors in conditions similar to those that might be encountered on race day. The name has remained despite the fact that no qualified car has used a carburetor since 1963.

Our own official "Carburetion Day" will take place on Saturday, the 18th of may and will consist of driving in traffic, practicing the rolling start behind the pace car and a 40-lap practice race (a full stint of the Sunday race). Attendance is not required, but we strongly encourage everyone to attend - especially those who have never started a 500 mile race before. This will be an invaluable opportunity to prepare for Sunday's race and maybe get some mistakes out of the way before the real thing. Please be aware that the aerodynamic effects of driving with more cars around you are quite important, causing understeer when you follow another car as well as oversteer when there is another close behind you. This has to be taken into account both in the setup and the driving.

- The HSO Admin reserve the right to deny someone entry to the official race this Sunday if they are deemed too dangerous on track during these test race sessions.

There will also be an additional informal practice day on Wednesday with the same program, aimed at facilitating people more opportunities of practicing driving under real traffic conditions.


Schedule (all times given are Paris time):

Wednesday May 15th
20:00 - Free Practice
21:00 - Warmup
21:10 - Race - 40 Laps (Grid used will be the official one from the May 12th qualy)

Saturday May 18th
20:00 - Free Practice
21:00 - Warmup
21:10 - Race - 40 Laps (Grid used will be the official one from the May 12th qualy)

Do you need a pace-car driver like last year?

You can race and also pick a free car if you want. This is training in group, so the more people are around, the more realistic it will be Smile

Berry Lynn asked if there is going to be a broadcast of carburettion day, I told her we haven't planned one but if anyone wants to just stream from the cockpit (No need for comments) you are welcome.


This does not include the Buick brigade, as we want to see race action on screen and not pit repairs and refueling :hihi:

Really hope to make it Saturday.

Need to know if the dynamite at my back will detonate in a multi-car draft.

To finish, or be competitive, that is the question...
