    Weekly Hotlap Challenge 192 – Double Mint Twins… and a Psycho Pastel Falcon Stoops.

    Welcome to the Weekly Hotlap Challenge 192 – Double Mint Twins… and a Pyscho pastel falcon stoops.
    Featuring Assetto Corsa and Competizione challenges.

    Assetto Corsa Challenge: Hotlap
    Double Mint Twins
    Car: Porsche Cayman S 718 and/or Porsche Boxster S PDK
    Track: Imola


    Assetto Corsa: Double Mint Twins

    I figured we might as well get rid of two birds with one stone with this combo. The two Porsche's are identical and yet they have slightly different personalities. At the very least this combo will give you two chances to win!

    News from F1 continues to influence the WHC selection process!

    The Formula One 2020 calendar got an update on Friday, as Nurburgring, Portimao, and Imola were confirmed, taking the season’s tally to 13.
    It will officially be known as the Gran Premio dell’ Emilia Romagna.

    The Imola Circuit has iconic corners like the Acque Minerali and Piratella. Interestingly, AlphaTauri had tested at Imola in preparation of the 2020 season.

    Their drivers were mind-blown, with Pierre Gasly calling it his best experience in an F1 car. His teammate Danii Kvyat had this to say after the testing at the iconic track. “An F1 car through corners like Acque Minerali – the entrance is so fast, it’s cool. It really gives you a lot of adrenaline.”

    Well, we won't going as fast but the hopefully this combo will get your adrenaline pumping. Whether you choose to hotlap with the hard or soft top, I suspect the laptimes will be identical. Bonus for smallest laptime difference between the two cars.
    In testing my laptimes only differed by 0.016 seconds between the two cars which is what inspired this combo. Let's see what happens when its all official. Chances are slim I can repeat that feat...

    Assetto Corsa Competizione – A psycho pastel falcon stoops at the Ardennes Rollercoaster
    This week it is a shorter 10 MIN Hotstint challenge and a Hotlap Challenge.

    The challenge this week is to emulate qualifying performance of the Black Falcon Team last year in the GT3 Series 24hrs of Spa. Black Falcon entered two cars, Numbers 4 and 6. The pyscho pastel number 4 car was a Pro- Driver Class car, the number 6 car was a Silver-Driver Class.
    The qualifying was run on the Friday between 18:30 and 19:00, using the Super Pole format. We are asking for your time over ten minutes and your fastest lap. Both sets of times will be used to determine the fastest man at the end of the week.

    My first thought, having seen the “Black Falcon” Number 4 car, was “Psycho Pastel. How very soft Manga!”
    My first question having seen the No.6 Car, was what does that most superb combination of consonants and vowels, “AssenheimerMullfinger” mean????
    Turns out it is just German Mercedes Dealership, or Autohaus. But I must say, AssenheimerMullfinger is a name that rolls around the tongue in a very satisfying manner.
    Black Falcon Motorsports is a racing company that takes on and trains customers interested in getting into sports car racing. A quote from the “First Steps” section on their website -
    “Starting with the Porsche 981 Cayman, the choice of your vehicle can be stepped up with your driving skills until one day you might find yourself behind the wheel of a thoroughbred race car like the Porsche 991 GT3 CUP or the AMG GT3.”
    No mention of price…, so as the saying goes, “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it!”


    Seven kilometres of rollercoaster fun!
    For free!
    The very interesting comments from Sissydriver last week about the comparable performance between PC and console are played out here. It is very easy to lose the back end in places, and through the faster turns the lack of feel makes turn in steering angle pure guesswork. Luckily we all all familiar with Spa and that track experience helps hugely. We could do with a shorter ratio gearbox though.
    So, pick your target, take on the Pros in the No.4 car or the Silver-Class No.6 car…..

    Last year, the pole sitter was the No.4 car of the Black Falcon Team (see below and Tyres and Times) and the No.6 car qualified 47th out of 70. In the race, the No.4 car finished 3rd with 363 laps, behind a pair of 911 GT3 Rs and the No.6 car gained twenty three places, to finish 24th after 358 laps.

    - Pro-Class - 2:19.231
    - Silver-Class - 2:21.095

    Really happy to see that AC combo. Never really lapped Imola much since a bike game about a decade ago, great track for sure.

    Not having time to learn everything F1 and awaiting an update on ACC was painstaking this past week, but I have some new customization options now that I downloaded Ghub. (and got a minor education in computer stuff)

    At least I know what I'm doing tonight now. :)

    for ACC cloud and temperature are free selectable?
  4. ACC Challenge
    The psycho-pastel Falcon:
    Select CUSTOM and enable DYNAMIC at 100% VARIABLE
    (On console, that disables all the weather settings.)

    In testing, for me it was sunny all the way.

  5. I've gone out on a limb with this one!:rolleyes:

    @sissydriver - with the settings as above, are you able to set temp and cloud on PC?

    Ahhh, just wheel, pedals and shifter. Today I tried a 2nd session on the f1 and couldn't improve, I was feeling like a track version of Rick Wakeman with all those keys to press.

    On the Cayman, I used standard settings, changed only tire pressures to 24 front and 26 rear (cold) to reach recommended pressure on track. A lot yet to improve.

    Imola always makes me remember this Barrichello's crash in 1994:

    As usual, great intro. Thanks, TW.[​IMG]

    Quick go before British Gt kicks off, car feels like it is lacking in grip likes to over and understeer, sometimes at the same time, plus side is that its a H-pattern, oh I ****ing hate astro turf!!!

    Need to figure out how to install RSR I guess...

    After a small vacation I had to get used to AC for 30mins or so before being able to do any laptimes :D Driving is still the best practice... The difference between the Cayman and the Boxster is the top speed. I see you were doing great WHC competitions in the meantime :)
    So, my Simucube 2 Pro DD wheel base has arrived. The only thing missing now is my rig by Sim-lab :(

    AC Porsche Boxster S PDK
    2:00:529 (laptime is AC invalid, but RSR valid, so what does count?)

    First time in the rig for a couple of weeks, first time on AC for 3 weeks, that's my excuse anyway :D
  14. ***Stewards' Office***

    My feeling is that your lap in the Boxster is INVALID.
    Two reasons:
    1. Regulations - Technically you need a game screenshot/ vid frame to enter.
    2. Much more importantly, fairness. If a console player was to do that lap, it would not be allowed.

    Having looked at your vid, I think the lap was invalidated on the exit of the final chicane Turn 12. In console, if you take almost any kerb at all, it disqualifies.

    However, it is @Pretend racer 's event, so he's the boss and has final say!
  15. GoodGame.eXistenZ

    GoodGame.eXistenZ Hardcore Simmer

    Fair enough - I never understood why there are differences in the track limits with RSR / AC. So, here a valid lap (lost 2 tenths through the first chicane):

    AC Boxster S

    Thank you to @GoodGame.eXistenZ and @Totall Wrytoff for being able to discuss the issue of track limits like adults should and coming to a fair and reasonable resolution. We are, afterall, here just to have fun and learn about everything to do with AC. That's more important than where we end up on the WHC scoreboard. Internet points aren't worth anything IRL...

    I tip my hat to both of you, Sirs!

    RSR track limits seem to be tighter, is that right? I already want to punch the chaps lights out that keeps telling me my laps are invalid :mad: I really need to switch that off!!o_O

    need bamboo to soothe the panda :cool:

    Edit: Second attempt Wind 12km/h, now wanted try once more - wind 49 km/h - huh -
    the times are then not comparable. is that intended?

    GoodGame.eXistenZ Hardcore Simmer

    Not necessarily. For Imola I found the AC limits to be more strict. But that really depends on the track, sometimes it is the other way around.
