    Race Petrol Skid - Hotlap/Timetrial/competition thread

    In this thread we will keep track of the Hotlap/Timetrial times and any other sort of competition we might be able to come up with concerning any racing game of choice.

    We are running a weekly competition and a enduring competition. The weekly competition ends after a week or shorter(see due date), the enduring competition ends after a longer time, not set in stone at the start. This usually involves tracks that are considered classics and favourites of many.

    Current Weekly Competition: Hockenheim Ring, DTM
    Game: Simbin DTM Experience
    Due date: 27 October 2013, 2100 UTC

    Times:

    Participants Time car
    class
    Prolar bear 0:51.59 BMW DTM Experience Demo



    Current Enduring Competition: WTCC Extreme, Nordschleife

    SirWigglyBottom 6:58.152 Chevrolet Lacetti Extreme WTCC Extreme



    After the competition is over the times will be moved into the second post for archival purposes. Some competitions might involve prizes, this will be clearly stated above.

    Participants can register for the competition by posting in this thread and stating that they will join in. Times be will have to be submitted before the due date stated above. Any entry's after the given date will be disqualified.

    Closing of the competition will be clearly marked in a post in the thread and in this post. New competition will be started within 2 days if possible, any delay will be clearly communicated. Some competitions may run for a shorter time.

    There are no submission limits concerning the amount of times, only the fastest time will be entered in the competition.

    Note: These rules are bound to change eventually.

    Submission requirements(any of these is valid):
    1. Submit a screenshot of the round time
    2. Post a replay that can be replayed in Race07
    3. Post a link to a video website with a recording of the round.

    General discussion will continue in the 'Race Petrol Skid - A Steam group for RPS racing' thread here: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/foru...for-RPS-racing

    Not if I claim it last!

    Also, pepper, I'm pretty sure you mean "prize" instead of "price" in the original post. At least I hope so

    Assuming I can get my wheel and the game to co-operate (iRacing and RFactor are fine with 900 degrees, Race 07 and arcade racers get finnicky about it, switching between the two causes FFB to go mental unless I reboot) then I'm in. I shall of course be slow as hell, as one would expect.

    My first attempt in the WTCC 06 Peugot 407 on Brandshatch GP: 1:38.595



    I got stuck behind the guy in the screenshot, I tried to overtake him on the long straight after Surtees, but he stayed over so slightly ahead when turning into the corner. After 11 rounds my tires were gone. My best lap was pretty much stuck watching his rearview mirror

    EDIT: We can consider also using the WTCC 2008, it gives us the Volvo's and Lada's also. Although I dont know if everyone has that?

    Hold on a second - what mode should we use for this? Clearly time attack has an advantage over a race or practice session.
    Personally I'm fine with WTCC 08 even if I don't have them.

    My second attempt, time trialling against my self and a 1:34 time I downloaded, it sort of shows where im loosing speed. I also managed to smash the car into the barrier. I didnt manage to improve my time this session, even though I did drive 200ms faster on some sectors....

    1:38.742 WTCC 07 BMW 320i E90

    Prolar bear, any mode one would like, if you want to drive in Time Attack do so, if you want to do it in a session then by all means do as well. Some may find driving in the AI traffic easier to keep the pace then in a time attack.

    Two possibly silly questions:

    1) how do you get the track overlay? Is it a setting I somehow failed to see in all these months, or is it a mod?
    2) why are you doing this in a race? I was going to use practice mode...

    Faldrath, press the '4' key, it will show a track map, either in rotating, static or off mode. You can toggle multiple things with the 1-9 keys!

    that'll be the two of us.

    Uhh what the hell, I can't take a screenshot. Using Print Screen will take a shot of the desktop or browser instead of Race.
    I'll try to fix this, in the meanwhile 1:39:027 in the BMW E90.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I'll use Steam for screenshots.

    Prolar Bear, WTCC 06 or 07?

    Also, try F12, this will make a Steam screenshot that you can then upload and paste here with the img tags. The upload dialogue will appear after closing the game, and you get a URL similair to this: http://cloud-2.steampowered.com/ugc/...24F72E7643921/

    Ninja'd.
    In any case it was WTCC 07. Are the 06 and 07 cars different?

    I dont think there are any big differences, atleast my times are really close together in either class.

    So my track overlay key was unbound for some reason, but that's fixed now. Thanks!

    Only managed 4 laps today and I have to remember the layout... best time around 1:44, so not screenshot worthy yet. I keep messing up the final sector, especially Sheene - that's a tricky turn.

    And I remembered what I hate about Brands Hatch - if you glance up to see your time after crossing the finish line, you'll miss the braking point for the first turn...

    Agreed. I still can't get that first turn right, but it's exhilarating. Sheene is scary at first, unless you know it you'll never see it coming!
