Generic Weekly Hotlap Challenge #148 – Hugo’s hot wheels

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Totall Wrytoff, Sep 29, 2019.

  1. Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #148 – Hugo’s hot wheels

    As we come up to the 150th Anniversary of the WHC, we are going to be celebrating the milestone with a series of challenges chosen in co-operation with those who have played a significant role in the WHC, The Legends of WHC!

    Quick reminder to all, please could you include your name and format as described below when posting your times.

    The Challenge: Hotlap
    Car: Ford GT40
    Track: Mugello
    The Ford GT40 needs no introduction. It is a legend and icon. Everyone also knows it’s Eric Broadly’s Lola Mark VI. It is also Pastmaster Hugo’s favourite car. We last used the GT40 one hundred and six WHCs ago, in a combi proposed by Hugo around Highlands Long.
    At the time Hugo said “Good brakes for a vintage car, lots of power, and easy to save if you spin the wheels after a slow turn because of the mid-engine.” I’m not actually sure I agree with much of that, especially having enjoyed slicks followed by go-kart for the last two weeks. It took a fair bit of getting to know around Mugello. I think it’s a tricky car to drive - it likes confident inputs but doesn’t like being pushed around. You are quite clearly a passenger and must guide it smoothly.
    Here a link to a very fascinating article, a contemporary view about the GT40 as a road car, written in 1966, by the legendary Denis “Jenks” Jenkinson for Motorsport magazine,
    Mugello, Mugello, molto bello! A good long straight, the car wanders a bit and you build good speed, but just under the bridge, you start to think about braking and “leave plenty of room” will be forefront on your mind for the rest of the lap! The nose is very responsive, provided you have slowed the car properly and allows you to carve good lines into the corners, but you have to feed the power in gently on the way out or be ready for opposite lock. I think you coax a lap time time out of this rather than try and belt it!

    Fastest time on RSR is 2:02.8, we can beat that this week surely!

    We’re on vintage tyres this week. Recommended pressure is 37psi front and back.

    @Totall Wrytoff - good combo. Great stuff! :cool:

    But we used him last at WHC 121 ;)
  4. F1415182235

    F1415182235 Hardcore Simmer

    Yay my favorite track! If only it was a GT3 car
  5. Absolutely right -and it was one of mine. I was sure we had used it since 42, but it was not entered on the master spreadsheet after 121 - so that's two errors cleared up, thank-you very much for spotting!:cool:

    Nice! Noted.
    What is your second favourite track @F1415182235 ?:)
  6. F1415182235

    F1415182235 Hardcore Simmer

    Not sure. It's a tie between Nurb GP, Laguna Seca, and Zandvoort.
    And Catalunya without the boring chicanes at the end.

  7. I have a feeling this would be a very interesting week!
  8. Totall Wrytoff
    Hands up who binned it at the end of the straight first time out.:)
    I would like to say this was a shakedown, it's not. It's the result of quite a long sesh.

    Not much time today so only a few laps to get on the board.
    I can tell it’s gonna be a tough one, missed most apex and braking was way off.

    ooooooh I love this car!


    should be doing league practice for tomorrow but need to take this beauty out first :)

    After the comment about overshooting T1 I decided to concentrate extra hard on first approach and really thought I was braking early but still only just kept it on :D

    Damn, just did 4 laps, hit a 2.04.9 after 2 laps then went in and corrected psi, then another two laps and got to 2.04.0 then clicked on restart session :(
    But on the bright side that meant I had to go out for another 4 laps, fortunately got again into the 04.0's after second lap but then managed to find another bit on the next lap before invalidating lap 4.



    Just had a quick look at RSR and we are already within 1s of the top time, if I had it running I would be 3rd but it stopped connecting recently so just turned it off. If you look down to the fastest pro time we have already beaten it lol

    Great combo! I'll be taking a leave of absence for the month of October but no worries, I am on a nice long vacation in a lovely place! I will return at the beginning of November and will be back to posting WHC podium times minus 2 seconds!!! :D Cheers mates! Carry on!
  14. NO WORRIES @Biner???:eek::eek::eek:

    You will be missing the 150th WHC!:(
    Don't want to spoil it, but you'll miss out on something....

    Hopefully you'll be let out early for good behaviour!;)

    Used the longest set of ratios, seems better suited to the first two sectors and last corner, it felt brutally unsympathetic towards the old dear's motor and trans. Dropped the rear ARB to 1.
    Probably just a psychological benefit:D
    What is everyone else using?
    Lewis, LeiF....?:)

    Sorry TW, I only changed fuel and limiter so whatever default is. Hopefully i’ll have more time on Wednesday to have a mess with setup.

    Had a great time last night. I remember that car and I remember not behind a fan when we used it the last time. That's why am happy. I see the difference in my driving. Couldn't control the car properly and now I understand that beauty.
    Haven't touch much of the settings but I remember 2 click up for bias and like you TW longest gear ratio for this time but the short one is not bad. As you say they both have pros and cons. Hope I'll have more time this week. Great combo
