either I'm doing way better or totally got the wrong line. My kuruma hasn't tried to tip over yet at T1.

With the likes of the Kuruma you pretty much have to treat the first corner as two corners.

 

Either slow into the first part and get the line spot on so the bumps won't matter on the second part

 

Or fast in and slow it down a lot mid corner so the bumps don't unsettle you quite as dramatically, which is quite tricky as it goes against everything you would normally be trying to do.

 

I think it's one of the first tracks I've pulled in for a while that actually does have multiple options.

 

Trophy Truck gains big time in corner 1 and the approach to 3. The run once you're out of turn 1 until you hit the approach to 3 is Kuruma territory and the rest of the lap is tailor made for stuff that has a high top end so gives a boost to the faster stuff out there.

 

No matter what car selection you take it involves a bit of compromise and trying to find which gains offset the downsides and suits how you play it.

 

Or you can be a coward and just go for a Trophy Truck if the bumps are too much for you too handle!

Trying to get a little ahead of things at the moment. So although you still have till midnight tonight for round 12 you can also start round 13 if you like as the details are now on the first page.

First time properly attempting a Time Trial here - did a few laps on Round 12 with Chubb, but I doubt it was competitive. Round 13 is going well, managed to shave off 6 seconds or so from my first practice session :D

OK results are here for Round 12.

 

Clydicality took his second win on the bounce, every season seems to just end up with one person winning every round at the moment so it would appear this time around it's his turn.

 

Rally Ally was a bit less rally than normal but still managed 2nd tied with Lann who rejoins us with a jump straight back into the podium spots. 

 

Full results are here

 

We now also have our first table for the Winter season with no real surprises up top as the usual suspects fill the front 3 places. I'd expect a rapid climb from Lann now that he is back though and hopefully when we move to the final round and the Stinger GT we can tempt Fido out of his Zelda inspired hiatus. 

 

Season Table Here.

 

I'll get Crew vs Crew updated asap.

Wow, thanks G.

I was averaging 57 second laps most of the time, but pulled out a 55.8 on one perfect lap. 
I think I have to thank my new controller I bought a couple of months ago, for my recent run of great results.

It's been a while since I updated the in depth detail, the names just go on the list and get copied onto the new sheets as I go.

4th place. I happily take that after forgetting that the deadline was last weekend instead of the next so I had to submit a practice lap. Congrats Cly!

 

Guess I'll get the Nero out for the next one.

I feel like I could do better if I bought a new super.

Challenging track!

We've had quite a few technical tracks on the bounce, so I thought it was a bout time we had a couple of faster / simpler ones to balance it out.

 

Results will be up sometime after about 8pm or 9pm tonight as I have some stuff to take care of today before I go to college, I lost internet from 9pm last night and only got it back this morning as well which has slowed me down with none GTA stuff as well.

Results are finally here.

 

Ally denied Clydicality a clean sweep by jumping back into top spot again over half a second ahead of Clyd. Lann took 3rd spot with another good result now that he is free of Clash of the Crews duties.

 

Clyd retains his Winter Championship lead and barring any major issues should retain that, the full tables are available on page 1, while in the overall table for the year Ally has pretty much all but won it even if he just phones it in for the rest of the year.

 

Trashbags sits in 3rd spot for the season with every chance of his best ever championship performance and a podium spot, although Verstappen is hot on his heels and with 2 points either way it could change very quickly.

 

Edit: It would help if I included the actual results table wouldn't it?

 

RESULTS HERE

In the crew championship for the Winter it's the usual story with a Domestic Battery, Van Society and GTAF All Stars top 3 which shows no sign of changing anytime soon.

 

It's the same story in the overall tables with Domestic Battery unassailable in top spot.

 

Full tables are on page one as usual.

Cheers G, liking your choice of the Turismo R, just wish it was faster so I would use it more.

Congrats to Ally for the win.

I'll be looking to get back on top in round 14.

Either sometime this afternoon before I go to college or if not it will be when I get back home this evening, so about 9pm UK time at the latest.

 

Depends how quickly I get the customer I have to phone now sorted out.

This round is for Schafter V12 only.

 

The track will seem familiar as it's the one I tweaked to make the Trophy Truck round. The track was originally built specifically for the Schafter and is based on an original DTM touring car track.

 

https://socialclub.r...w30WIpjsbW8qrpg

 

It's not actually the track I intended for the Schafter, but the other track wasn't quite ready to use so I've pulled this one off the shelf. The other track will feature next year.

Cool! V12 is nice as well as the track. Short laps are always good in a TT. I just hope I beat the faster cars this time. ;)
