Reminds me of this anecdote a friend told me recently. In the 1970s the Soviets were working on a translating computer. One of its best acheivement was to translate the biblical sentence "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak" from English to Russian. Result was something like "we have alcohol but the meat is rotten" \o/ ! Not much progress in the automatic translation business since then I reckon lol!

Ca me rappelle une anecdote qu'un pote m'a raconté l'autre jour. Dans les années 70 les russes essayaient de mettre au point un ordinateur-traducteur. Une de ses plus belles traductions, celle de la phrase biblique "l'esprit est résolu mais la chair est faible" de l'anglais au russe : "nous avons de l'alcool mais la viande est avariée" \o/ ! Il n'y a pas eu beaucoup de progrès depuis lors dans le domaine des traductions automatiques on dirait ^.^ .

I think it's obvious what this post will state ... Mad

My PC has still not arrived, I cannot participate tomorrow. REALLY frustrated now as I have driven the Procars a lot when they came out and they suit me very well, not to mention Donington is a very good track for me. Someone out there is just laughing at me, especially since I paid for Priority mail, which is 8-10 days, but which Polish Post have up where the sun doesn't shine. People are telling me not to expect it before a month's time has passed. My family shipped it 14 December so...

I really feel like a fool as I have signed up in November or so and still haven't even raced with you guys once! But I also didn't know how the international shipping process would be if you couldn't afford to use some high priority customer company like FedEx or DHL (where they were quoting me upwards of $500!)

Anyway, /rant.

Crying or Very sad

Yeh, even more as the ministry of health and the opticians' union give us money for each appearance of the car you know :D .

In fact I will as the race had some specifities

The race will be the longest one of the season. And that's have a great incidence. The M1 is very aggressive on the tyres. And 30 laps will be quite difficult for the poor rubbers.
Then appears the pitstops. We'll perhaps see some as tyres changing is quite fast (around 15s)..but it's nonetheless a great loose of time in that serie where laptime are quite equal.
So what scratch pitstop or not? and how many? one? two? with refuel or not? scratch scratch Tyres managind during the race will be the key factor to the victory. Be fast and burn them in 15 laps? or be slower and do the whole race saving a may be precious time?
That the dilemna the pilots will have to cope with.

Also it will be a bit difficult to overtake at Donnigton. They aren't so many spot to do that safely. Three corners are best for that; the esses (T9), Melbourne harpin (T10) and Goddarts (T11). Everywhere else will be at best hasardous (but if the guy in front of you made a big mistake). An attempt could be made at Redgate (T1) if you pull out better at Goddarts. But it will not be very easy with similar cars.

80L will be necessary to do the whole race.

contrairement à ce que j'ai dit je vais faire une tite nalyse car la course va avoir quelques specificitées:

Ce sera en effet la course la plus longue de la saison. Et cela va avoir une grande incidence. En effet la M1 est tres aggressive vis à vis des pneus. And 30 tours vont peser lourds sur la durée de vie des gommes.
Du coup vont apparaitre de possibles ravitaillements. Il est possible que nous en voyons car le changement de pneus est plutot rapide (environ 15 secondes). Neanmoins cela reste une grosse perte de temps (auquel il faut ajouter la decceleration et la reacceleration) dans une série où les temps semblent etre fort serrées.
Alors scratch ravitaillement ou pas? et combien? un? deux? juste pour les pneus ou l'essence aussi? scratch scratch . La gestion des pneus durant la course va devenir un facteur clé pour la victoire. Soit on attaque comme un fou et on crame les pneus en 15tours. Soit on les conserve en roulant un peu moins vite pour epargner le temps d'un ravitaillement qui pourrait etre precieux au final.
Tel sera le dilemne auquel seront confrontés les pilotes durant la course.

A noter qu'il ne sera pas très facile de dépasser à Donnington. Il n'y a pas tant que cela d'endroits sure pour cela. Sorti des esses (la chicane V9), de Melbourne harpin (V10) et de Goddarts (V11) partout ailleurs ce sera tres hasardeux (sauf bien sur si le pilote devant vous se loupe à un moment). On peut aussi tenter le coup à Redgate (V1). Mais pour cela il faut très bien sortir de Goddarts. Neanmoins, à voiture équivalente, cela restera soumis à une faute de pilotage de son adversaire.

Il faudra 80L pour terminer la course

pfiou, j'étais bien à la rue ce soir...
désolé de t'avoir tamponné Yves, malgré un freinage très appuyé qui limite à une touchette :smil20:
'faut dire que ça venait de cartonner à votre niveau, j'étais très prudent depuis le départ... mais là c'était pas encore assez
virage suivant on inverse les rôles, y'avait des voitures partout, choc arrière droit, promenade dans le gazon anglais...
je comprends que j'ai perdu mon aileron au freinage à la dernière épingle, et je rentre pour abandonner plutôt qu'être énervé et/ou dangereux
ça irait mieux pour la prochaine, pas faciles ces bagnoles :aie:
