Generic Christmas Hotlap Challenge #159 – A Christmas triple tipple

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Totall Wrytoff, Dec 21, 2019.

    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #159 – A Christmas triple tipple.

    First of all A HUGE THANK-YOU to F1415182235 and Lewisxbone for keeping the show rolling over the last few weeks!

    You will have noticed it is Christmas time again!
    WHC159 is a two week triple tipple - and let’s hope none of us will be able to say that by midday on the 25th! You have until next year to work your way through the card!

    Bucks Fizz:
    Car: McLaren 570S
    Track: Monza 1966 Road Course
    First up, we have an effervescent, Anglo-Italian, pre-prandial primo – the McLaren 570S around Monza Road course. Stiff as stiff carbon tub chassis, utterly compelling drive train and it just floats over the road, all the time hooked up like a cat on a velvet curtain. This is very, very fast. Fourth gear acceleration is eye-widening. The car is an absolute beaut. It is delicious! The 570 is the baby in the ranger and it is nearly as perfect as the baby in the manger. (Soz.)
    At the speeds generated around this track, turn in is ace - assured and confidence inspiring. Superbly flat, the mid corner stability allows you to think about early full throttle and the traction on the way out is big grin worthy!
    I love this car – first laps out, keep an eye on the speedo if poss. It’s wow!

    RSR top time is 1:32.713

    Tyre pressures:
    ....Semislick – Front 31psi Rear 33psi
    ....Street - Front 36psi Rear 40psi

    The Burgundy:
    Car: BMW M4 Akrapovic
    Track: Imola
    Onto the Burgundy and I’m afraid the tipple analogy falls a bit flat in this central European combination. Germany is Gewurztraminer and Imola is Barbera and Sangiovese, but I would stick to what is safe, so a Romanée Conti it is, or Chambertin if it’s a budget year. We’ve never used the BMW M4 in WHC, and obviously we have to have the Akrapovic version. Akrapovic is a Slovenian based manufacturer of aftermarket exhaust systems. Lighter and offering slight gains in power and torque, they are made of Titanium and in BMW’s case, try hard to make the engine sound good. Rather like the wine, in the M4 you are going faster than you think. Which means it’s very easy to out brake yourself…. The motor is smooth but brutally torquey and not at all turkey. But this is a good ride. Quiet (ish), smooth, satisfyingly powerful and with a well composed chassis, you are like a devil on horseback. You will enjoy getting better and better the more you go rounder and rounder.

    RSR top time is 2:01.280

    Tyre pressures:
    ....Semislick – 34psi all round
    ....Street - 40psi all round

    Port and cigars:
    Car: Lotus Type 49
    Track: Black Cat County Short
    ….Just at the time you should be retired to the drawing room, most probably to the sofa – head back, mouth open, eyes closed, cigar smouldering gently against the upholstery and the port stain growing across your lap – you are going to have to up your game.
    ….And Colin suggests we add lightness, just when we have gained many, many kilos….

    So this 2 litre Cosworth - with wheels, transmission and cockpit lightly bolted to it - will most certainly wake you up. In fact, this is very noisy indeed and will require an adjustment to your surround sound system! I’ve chosen a longer track for the 49 to try to mimic the long courses of the time and in fact, for my standard of driving, the tiny car on the wide road works well! The extra room gives enough time to manage a slide without the desperate panic and it does like to slide. On the way in to the apex, especially on the way through. And definitely on the way out. In 1967 the number 5 car (shown) was driven by Jim Clark, who finished 3rd in the driver’s championship, whilst Graham Hill drove the factory liveried number 6 and finished 6th.
    This is the first time an engine is used as a “stressed member.” ie: it forms part of the chassis – with transmission and suspension bolted on behind and the monocoque bolted to the front.

    I’m aware that Lewis doesn’t like port and cigars (Black Cats) which is why there are three challenges and he is excused this challenge!

    RSR top time is 2:47.119

    Tyre pressures
    1967 Vintage GP tyres 26psi all round

    WHC 159 will close on Sunday 5th January Twenty Twenty. There will be a leaderboard for those finishing all tipples. Who will be fastest over the Christmas triple?

    Please consume responsibly and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very happy new year, with stella results!
    Don’t be fats, be fast!

    The two laps indicated is deceptive. Flagging early. Not sure I can manage the Port and cigars...:oops::D

    I had to take advantage of the few hours of opportunity to participate today. Never sure when I'll have time! I spent the most time chasing the world record in the McLaren and then I realized there were 2 other challenges. I did not spend much time on the burgundy or port and cigars..very minimal laps on those attempts. The previous world record for port and cigars was not any indication of what times we will actually see. 2.47 was not difficult to surpass with only 4 laps around. Awesome fun @Totall Wrytoff , thank you!
