    Here we go! It’s WHC 150!
    A very warm and excited welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap Challenge #150 – WHC One hundred and fifty.
    Are you ready for a big one? WHC150 is 5 Challenges over 2 weeks!
    upload_2019-10-13_18-37-18.png
    On Sunday 3rd October 2016, John Gordon, posted the very first Weekly Hot Lap Challenge thread in the Console Lounge called “The devil wears Praga.” The title was one of the best ever and by this time 3 years ago, the first six players had posted a time for the first WHC hot lap.
    I have tried and failed to get in touch with John Gordon – there’s a reward for anyone that can! I’m sure he would be very proud to see his idea still going strong three years later. I’d love him to see it!
    Nonetheless, here is the picture he used for the very first final standings and it also reflects what we think of his idea! Top bloke!
    upload_2019-10-13_18-38-38.png
    To celebrate 150 WHCs, the WHC150 is a multiple challenge event – five varied challenges to tackle, over two weeks. Here’s a summary of the Challenges on offer, you’ll find all of the details below:

    1. Qualify for the WHC150 Club - Achieve an average speed of 150mph around the Highlands Circuit!
    2. Classic Hotlap – 2 car choice - either with slicks and downforce, or without…
    3. Race – show off your overtaking skills!
    4. Concours d'Elegance – Just show off! It’s non-competitive, not very…

    The details for each event are as below.

    -----------
    Challenge 1. The WHC150 Club
    The Challenge: Beat the time of 2:01.500
    Car: Your choice

    upload_2019-10-13_18-39-22.png
    Challenge yourself, be the envy of your friends! Achieve an average speed of 150mph around the Highlands circuit to qualify for the WHC 150 Club. If you manage a lap time of 2:01.500 or less, which equates to an average speed of 150mph, you gain the honour and prestige of membership of the exclusive WHC 150 Club. Include this on your cv. You have a free choice of car, but your car choice determines your membership level as shown below:

    Membership Level………….…Car Choice…………………………….………Recommended car
    ***Platinum……………Mas MC12, Tatuus, Any not below……...Mas MC12 GT1, Ferrari LaFerrari
    **Gold……..….………...Group Cs, Can-Ams…………………………..Merc Sauber C9, Porsche 917/30
    *Silver…..………….…..Post 80’s F1, single seat prototypes
    …………………..………..LM hybrids…………………......………........…Ferrari F2004, any F1 car, Exos Step1

    Time guide – How fast do I need to be?
    Platinum: Only for the chosen few - Requires approx 5-10sec improvement on the RSR fastest time
    Gold: Will need an ace lap - Requires an RSR time of top 3 or better, in the case of the Sauber C9
    Silver: Manageable for all - An RSR top 20 time
    **Please only post your time once you have beaten the the 2 mins 1.5 secs time limit. Do not post times slower than this. Keep trying!
    Your membership level will be displayed in the weekly rankings.

    How to take part - The WHC150 Club :

    To enter, select Hotlap and choose any car in which you think you can beat the time of 2 minutes 1.5 seconds around The Highlands circuit.
    To enter you must beat the time of 2 minutes 1.5 seconds
    Please use Hotlap Mode, all other settings are Free
    Mode: Hotlap
    Time of day: Free Ambient Temp: Free Setup: Free -Assists: Free - Stability: Free

    -------

    Challenge 2.The Classic Hotlap
    Challenge: Hotlap – The Norsdchleifemeister
    Car - Either: Lotus 98T and/ or Nissan GT-R Nismo
    Track: Nurburgring Nordschleife
    upload_2019-10-13_18-41-50.png
    upload_2019-10-13_18-42-0.png
    The world’s most challenging race track, our favourite race track, with or without down force! AC enthusiasts are split fairly evenly between those who love downforce and those who don’t. So there is a choice of cars. Complete a hotlap in both for a combined time and be a Norsdchleifemeister! Both cars have plenty of power but otherwise are about as different as you can get.
    - The Lotus 98T, Ayrton Senna’s motor, with everything turned up to 11, is selected not only for its historical significance, but also for the way fifth gear is dismissed as easily and as fast as first! The acceleration is surreal and wild. All assists off…can you tame it?
    - The Nismo GT-R, - born from Gran Turismo, the gamer’s car turned into reality - heavy, very very rapid, thumps the road into submission, sounds epic, whilst feeling effortless. Crashes will be enormous. To focus your attention, in 2015 some plucky fellow drove a (heavily tweaked) GT-R Nismo around the Nordschleife in 7 mins 8.70 seconds.

    How to take part - Hot lap:

    To enter, select Hotlap, choose the Lotus 98T and/ or the Nissan GT-R Nismo and the Nordschleife circuit. You are are encouraged to run both! There will be a Norsdchleifemeister leaderboard for combined times.
    Please setup the session as shown below:
    Mode: Hotlap
    Time of day: Free
    Ambient Temp: 26 Degrees
    Setup: Free - Assists: Free - Stability: Free
    To qualify you must have the ambient temp set to 26 DegC.

    --------

    Challenge 3. The Race – A sting in the tail!
    The Challenge: 8 Lap Race
    Car: McLaren P1 GTR
    Track: Brands Hatch Indy Circuit
    upload_2019-10-13_18-43-12.png
    This Challenge is to set the fastest time, for a standing start, 8 laps, whilst having to pass slower opponents. Sound easy? It is a twitchy test of fast reactions, cool headedness and overtaking skills. The astonishing, eye-widening difference in power and speed between McLaren’s P1 GTR and the Abarth 595SS should make you laugh aloud! You should catch and lap the buzzing roadblocks at least 3 times in the 5-6 minutes it takes to cover the 8 laps. You will be hoping it is on the straight…

    You must pass them cleanly. In testing, anything less than the merest graze sent you flying off…

    Damage must be set to 100%, show respect and be courteous!
    Tyre and Fuel use also set to On for this Challenge.

    Complete the 8 lap race unscathed and post your total time.* (*How to get the total time explained below)

    Challenge 4. The W.H.C. Concours d'Elegance
    The Challenge: Show some real style
    Vehicle: Your choice
    Location: Zandvoort Park, thereabouts, or your choice
    The Prize: The Winner chooses the combi for WHC154
    upload_2019-10-13_18-48-23.png
    Zandvoort - WHC’s favourite circuit in your favourite car! Or if you have a better idea, choose your own circuit. Competition is not the goal - unless you want to challenge someone – it’s about letting rip, with your imagination, not the throttle. You can use a boat, bicycle, plane, car or multiple cars of your choice. Why not team up with another player? As before PC players are more than welcome to do laps with mod cars, boats or planes!
    This challenge is an exhibition, however entries will be judged to determine a winner. The forum will decide, @Lewisxbone and I have the final decision in case of an unclear result. The criteria for judgement are to impress, amuse and delight the members of the forum with your post – it can be by speed – eg: smash the existing RSR record - or an extraordinary vehicle, or by unusual style – eg: a drift lap of the Nordschleife using reverse gear or a selfie…?

    A leaderboard will be posted for controversy. The winner will be asked to suggest a combi for WHC#154.

    How to take part - Concours d'Elegance
    To enter do something at the Zandvoort circuit and post a pic or vid with explanation.
    Please setup the session as you wish!

    :):):)
    Many thanks to @Moodyryrder who came up with the Keke Rosberg inspired, genius idea of the WHC150 Club. Many thanks to @Lewisxbone for testing the race idea months ago!

    Having added a Heusinkveld Sequential Shifter to my rig this week, I've been playing around with cars with a sequential stick shift, and in particular the RSR GT car mods. This one is the GT-N Ferruccio 36 V8 an absolute beast to drive and IMO the best sounding car in AC - Driven around Road Atlanta at night

    That's big and hairy-chested! Great style. A frisson of menace too.
    Very nice indeed, you can really feel those shifts being banged home:)

    Since you can post a video instead of the usual screen for this part of the WHC 150 (looking at the two posts above mine) and it doesn't say it has to be recorded after the challenge is posted, I guess I can participate in the #150 after all. Not in a way I'd wish, but still. ;)

    Congratulations and thanks to all of you taking care of the WHC in the past years, making it an enjoyable experience for us.

    I really wanted to do the race challenge but I have a technical problem if anyone can help. I did setup the race but for some reason I have to do 2 other races to unlock mine? Any idea anyone? Maybe it's an Xbox issue. Thanks

    When you are setting the championship up, in the Track selection section, highlight the Brand Hatch race and it's either R1 or L1 to move the selected race upwards or downwards.:)
