Generic Weekly Hotlap Challenge #121 – The Summer before love.

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Totall Wrytoff, Mar 24, 2019.

  1. Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #121 - The Summer before love.

    This is also the Final Round of the second mini-series “The Family Man,” featuring cars that would be good for ferrying your partner whilst putting a smile on your face.

    The Challenge:
    Car: Ford GT40
    Track: Silverstone 1967
    This week we go back in time, thoughts of a family have not yet occurred and so, obviously, our car only needs two seats.
    Ford produced 105 GT40s between 1964-1969. The car came in many forms and with many types of engine.
    Why does AC not denote the version of the GT40 we have in the game?

    After some detective work I reckon the car we have as standard in AC is a Mark 1, but built in 1968, because the five speed gearbox was introduced that year and it is fitted with the 302 cubic-inch Ford small block topped with Gurney-Weslake aluminium heads, also introduced in 1968. In normal language that translates to a 4.9 litre V8 with 4 Weber carburettors and twin overhead valves per cylinder. It produced around 425-horsepower.

    So why, if we had the Mark IV in 1967, why was the Mark 1 being produced again in 1968?
    By 1967, the Mark II and IV had dominated Le Mans for two consecutive years, using versions of the 7 litre Ford big-block engine. To reduce the high speeds, the ACO (race organisers) capped engine capacities in 1968. So Ford returned to the Mark I (which used the 289ci), but increased its engine capacity to 4,942 cc (301.6 cu in) to meet the new rules.
    By the way the car went on to win Le Mans in 1968 and 1969 too.

    We’re taking it for a spin around the Silverstone Airfield perimeter circuit. This configuration as we have it in AC, was first used in 1952, but for some reason it’s called Silverstone 1967. It’s a test of spotting your brake and turn in points and being smooth. Getting it wrong results in bad things happening very quickly!

    Paul Hawkins, an Australian privateer, raced his Ford GT40 AM GT-2 in the Player's Trophy 6hrs and the Martini Trophy Race at Silverstone in 1968. He got 3rd and 2nd places respectively. His GT40 AM GT, previously driven by Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart no less, used a standard '289' engine but with lightweight aluminium body panels and no sill covers to reduce weight. His best lap around Silverstone was a 1:31.600, which is not too shabby. His 289 had 400bhp and 450Nm compared to our 430bhp and 530Nm, but the car only weighed 840kgs against our 1025kg.
    You’ll need to shorten the gears, turn your engine limiter up to full and I hope you enjoy the noise this week!

    The recommended pressure for front and back vintage tyres is 37psi with a wide temp range of 40 to 80.

    Weekly Hotlap Challenge Championship League

    How it works:
    1. Enter the Weekly Hotlap Challenge as posted every Sunday evening and you will be automatically entered into the league table.
    2. Your ranking in the final standings, posted on Sunday evening, will earn you points, as follows:
    Place Points: 1st 14 2nd 13 3rd 12 4th 11 5th 10 6th 9 7th 8 8th 7 9th 6 10th 5
    3. Every player taking part in a WHC, but finishing outside the top 10 will get 4 points.
    4. Every player who is in the table, (ie has entered a previous WHC) but does not play that week will get three points each week.
    5. Players that join WHC after WHC#114 will be awarded 3 points retrospectively for every WHC missed. For example, if you enter WHC for the first time at WHC#124, your name will be added to the table, with 27 points, plus whatever you score in WHC#124.
    6. Specialist Challenges will also feature throughout the season. These will be as monthly mini-series, for example Formula 1 February or Muscle Car Month, or nominated car types, for example the best driver in road cars. These events will be announced in the WHC Thread.

    The updated Championship league table will be displayed in a new post in the Console Lounge each week.

    At the end of the year, the WHC before Xmas week, the winners will be declared -
    * Championship podium
    * Specialist Challenge Winners
    * 1st place Contributor (the most Bonus points)
    * 1st place Loyal Lapper (who has entered most regularly, most often, if there is a draw, Bonus points count, then Champ points)

    From AC
    From Wiki

    They switched back to something like an improved MkI when the regulations changed and the 427ci MkIV engine was no longer allowed.
  3. Haha, there you go. I wish I'd found those AC details, that would have saved some time! Thanks for confirming Andy-R.

    Not easy. Couldn't get a clean lap last night. I cheated by putting 20% stability to find my lines. Don't know the track. Promise I'll talk it out soon!

    Seems so long ago that I drove this track, I’m tempted to put the green line on until I get used to it.
    Also I think my steering column is broke coz this car does not wanna turn in for me.
    She sounds Lovely though.

    Oh my, love the car immensely but really hate the track. I actually prefer the modern version of Silverstone we have to this old one and I don’t really like that either :)

    Always making mistakes here, makes me feel better that you guys find it similar!

    But as it is the GT40 I will have a go..

    isn't she lovely...


    In addition to already having a skin, I had a setup for this track having raced here at some point, had to make a couple of minor adjustments but after a couple of initial offs just about managed to get it round a few times...
    although still 0.2 away from my own PB according to Sidekick.

    as you can see in exhibit C below, there is plenty more time in there...


    Now I have to leave it for today as there are more pressing matters to attend to...

  16. Improvement
    Managed to stabilise the car by upping the rear rebound dampers and dropping the braking force to 97%, otherwise it's stock.
    Now I just need to learn where to brake and turn in, get consistent with that and slowly improve:D

    Two fastest laps, back to back, only 0.017 apart.

    I managed to increase my pb by about two tenths, and if I can get the penultimate corner right I should be able to get a 1.33.8 but that didn't happen today.

    I modified Labbe's tune for zandvoort.
  18. That's a lovely vid!
    Watching it makes me I realise that I have massive wall fear problem to overcome, along with everything else.
    I reckon 2nd lap looks smoother, not sure if that was the faster. Thanks for sharing Pretend racer:)

    @Pretend racer - great lap and thank you for the setup. my first ideas are a little bit different. and - for sure - your ideas are much better ;)
    the video is planned for this evening after work :)

    This car does feel a bit reluctant to turn/understeery at times but it just means your asking too much of it. That said slowing the Ford consistently can be tricky as it suffers from a fair bit of brake fade, especially at the end of the back straight.

    How different we all are, I hate the vanilla GT40 sounds :D
