    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap #68: Mad, bad and dangerous to know.

    The Challenge.

    Car: Porsche 917K
    Track: Nordschleife Endurance AND Highlands

    That's right, both of them. :)

    Not everyone has the time to run multiple laps on the Nordschleife. It was always my intention to run another challenge alongside the Nords Endurance to accomodate those players. I was going to use the Nurburgring GP circuit, but why not use Highlands and then we have both sides of the vote covered.

    This is an iconic racing car. It was faster than the contempory F1 cars at the fearsome old Spa circuit in the early '70s. Pedro Rodriguez, Jo Siffert, Brian Redman, even Steve McQueen some of the illustrious names associated with it. It's a bit of a beast though, be careful with it. You'll be well over 200mph on the long straight at the Nordschleife; and hanging on for dear life on the fast sweepers of Highlands.

    The Rules.
    Mode: Hotlap
    Time of day: Free
    Ambient Temp: 26 Degrees
    Setup: Free
    Controller: Free
    Assists: Factory
    Stability: Free

    If it isn't mentioned here then assume the setting is free.

    These challenges are exclusive to one another. You can do both, or just do one of your choice, it doesn't matter. Post results from either track in this thread, I'll collate both leaderboards here.

    Please make sure you have the ambient temperature set correctly, and that you are in hotlap mode, I really don't like disallowing times!

    The Deadline.
    Sunday February 25th 2018 - 22:00 GMT.
    As ever, Nordschleife challenges are two weeks. The deadline is the same for the Highlands .

    How to take part!
    To enter simply head into the game select Drive > Hotlap and choose the Porsche 917K and head to Nordschleife Endurance or Highlands.Make sure you setup the session using the settings detailed in this thread and hit the track!

    You can run as many laps as you like and update your times as often as you like, its simple :) All Platforms are welcome, it is all about having fun and enjoying Assetto Corsa.

    To submit a time, pause the game and select 'session' from the menu and screenshot this page or take a photo of your screen and post it in this thread - Note all the information from the screen is required including temperature, mode heading and of course the car being used!

    Feel free to post video clips and share information in here as well, but without the session screen your time will not be included (placing the session screen in a video clip is acceptable).

    You also need to state the time and your platform in the body of your post, this should be the first thing you do, the image should then be placed below the text. It would also be helpful to mark updated times with Improvement. This makes collating the results much easier.

    A leader board will be collated from time to time, this will keep everyone up to date on where they currently stand...Unfortunately editing of posts gets locked on this forum so this post will not be updated.

    Feel free to use the unofficial leaderboard but remember you still need to include the session screen in this thread to be included in the results.

    Good luck and have fun ;)

    YES!!!! We ask one and Moody gives us two (1+1 for free). We like getting things for free. Typical Dutch that "GRATIS" ;)

    Hopefully I will find a couple of hours today/tomorrow in between the rebuilding of the bathroom....or otherwise Wednesday and the rest of the week.
    I already love both of these combo's

    Right when I got home from work, bang! Fire up the console, pop in the disc, set the hotlap up, drop the fuel to minimum and leave everything else as is, and then bang! 9:16.3 on my first lap (after one quick restart since I broke too late at the end of the start/finish straight) and... wait for it... BANG! 20 mins later after a handful of attempts. Looks like these will be an eventful two weeks @Laughing Gravy !

    But seriously, got a lot to decipher with this car's sketchy tendencies and where the understeer hits. Heck, on both valid laps I got sideways shooting out of the Karussell and lost who knows how many seconds.

    Really made my day earlier when I’d nearly finished the full lap getting to the end of the long straight and run out of fuel because I thought 20 would be enough DOH!!!

    Now it's time for the Nordschleife. This should be fun. I had a quick practice last night of about 8 laps. Most of the time I invalidated the lap on the Nurburgring section of the circuit.
