Pre Season Test/ Car Selection Poll

Post by Gary Schilling » Tue Aug 18, 2020 8:59 pm

This is not set in stone.
I would like to have a 1 hour test session this coming Monday 8/24
We are following the VRS Sprint schedule . WK 1 is supposed to be Barcelona.
So that's where I would like to test . 
I propose we run fixed {baseline setups} for this one so no one has an advantage.
It would only be a 1 hour session during Monday's regular time slot.
I'm thinking 8-9 PM Eastern Time.
I could do another the Monday after.
Open to suggestions

Not sure what car I want to run as yet. The Merc is the ol' standby, but I've really liked running the Macca this season. The Ferrari is usually a good drive too, and the Audi is decent on some tracks for me. The BMW I've only run a few times but seemed ok as well...

Out of curiosity what would this test session be for in particular? Just to see who's quick/where you are in relation to other drivers? Or...?

Fuel load, opinions on the different cars.
That's why I put up the poll.
Trying to get a couple of each on the track together so we can see what the strengths & weakness are.
That's also why I think running baseline would be good for the 1st session.
If the interest is there, the next one would be open set.

I voted BMW, but I have the Audi and Ferrari as well, so not set in stone to the Bimmer.  I'll try and make the test session for sure.

would we be able to back out and jump in another car? I'm guessing we could if we get there early enough... sorry, still painfully new to iRacing and the sim racing thing in general.

I could contribute to the room if needed, to maybe make it a two-hour session.  Just let me know how to do it... through iRacing, paypal, etc...

Unfortunately iRacing does not allow that.
Once you click Join Session, you're stuck with that car even in practice session .
It would be a nice feature though.

I put myself down for the McLaren just to have one in the test. Not 100% sure I'll run it for the season but I am strongly considering it.

Thanks, I'm considering leaving the session open to anyone since it's only going to be a hour.
And if we have problems. I'll just boot them.

Thanks for opening that test session, Gary.  The BMW was using about 0.7-0.8 per lap as well (I don't have an app or anything to know for sure, just have to watch my fuel in the black box).  I wasn't as slow as I thought I would be and the BMW felt pretty easy to drive (kinda neutral) so I may end up going with it, not like I can see the outside of the car while racing anyway!!  :lol:  I do love the Ferrari and the Audi, though.
Definitely gonna try and get more practice in for this series, and besides, these cars are just more fun to drive.  Looking forward to next week already.

That 488 was mean looking goin' round the track, Julio!!  I jumped on board with you to see if I could duplicate your lines - you're just so much smoother than I am; braking, throttle, even steering inputs (especially steering...).  I have a lot to work on, but trying to get better.

I watched top speed on each car.
All were right around 161 mph before braking.
It's going to be tough choosing the right car as they all have their strengths and weakness on different tracks.
I'm waiting on a decision regarding that. Will post something if approved.

You were quick in the Bimmer, nice job!  Will be definitely testing it out as well.
