    Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione challenges.

    Time: 09:00 x 1
    Weather: Cloudy
    Please see competitor, weather and track conditions in How To Take Part below.

    Assetto Corsa Challenges:

    We’re running one of the last cars not yet run, the BMW Z4 E89 Step 1 around the oft overlooked Nurburgring GP circuit.
    But, since it is the week before a big one, let’s have a bonus; one of my favourite and one of the most exciting cars in WHC!
    The magnificent, 1200bhp for 523kg, Lotus 98T! You have the power of two and a half horses for each kilo.
    The 98T’s whopping grunt comes from a Renault Gordini developed, 1,492cc, V6 turbo. Traction is remarkable considering and I like the way it accelerates.

    Don’t forget Ambient Temp at 10C!

    Stats, Tyres and Times
    Recommended tyre pressures
    BMW Z4 E89 Step 1 - semislicks – 33 psi front 34 psi rear
    Lotus 98T – All compounds - 28 psi

    Fastest in the BMW is GoodGame with a red hot 2:22.348
    Fastest time for the Lotus 98T is a stunning 1:34.645, once again by Jacub Krcma

    I think the Warsteiner Kurve is the most important and most difficult corner on this technical track. Haug-Haken has the best name.

    Assetto Corsa Competizione Challenge: 10 mins Hotstint

    Reiter Engineering is a German racing team, named after founder Hans Reiter. He likes racing Lamborghinis, having cut his teeth on a Diablo GT, then a Murciélago R-GT, before Gallardo and Camaro GT3s for the FIA GT3 European Championship. Besides running the factory squads in their respective championships Reiter also builds and sells its cars to other teams for various uses. Here’s what he’s done to a KTM, for GT4 competition.

    Tyres and steering lock
    Recommended tyre pressure should be around 27 psi.
    Reiter Engineering R-EX GT3 – Steering Lock – 720°

    Had a quick go at this because you can't have pudding until you've had all of your greens.
    In fact, the BM Z4 Step 1 is a pleasing, if noisy, steer.
    I really wanted to get to pudding though.

    Did a few laps to get to the right tyre pressures and slightly adjust the gears (longer 1,2,3 and 4) just to enjoy more than a split second in each gear. My brain, hand and foot don't work that fast!
    Early days, but WHOOOSH!!!!
    Nowhere are you short of power. The lap felt mega, but it is over 10secs off WR.... :eek:

    I like this car...it's pretty much the slowest of the GT3's, but it is fun to drive. This challenge could be frustrating though, 6 laps has to be the target but I'm not good at Nürburgring and that might remain tantalisingly out of reach!

    Reasonable first attempt. Think 6 laps may be just out of my reach, I may be able to go fast enough to start lap 6 with the current fuel level, but there's only about 0.8L left after 5 laps. The extra 3L of fuel may negate the extra speed?? :confused:

    Made it to the 6th with a with a couple of tenths to spare (was so happy I messed up the 6th lap by missing the braking point into T1!)

    Still a lot to improve, but a few tenths behind TW's time and putting some pressure.

    At some point I will try the classic f1, but I feel it won't be a safe match with me as a driver.[​IMG]

    I set the progression at x48 although at the top of the page it says Time: 09:00 x 1. There's no way I shall be managing 6 laps on this challenge although I know on P Cars 2 that I can just scrape in under 2 mins a lap with GT3 cars but not on this game.

    Wiped a second off, in truth, quite a bit of effort involved!
    Someone is 10 seconds faster than this. That's huge, I can't understand it at all!:)

    10:12.078 - 5 laps

    I have set my goal to break 10:10. I have also depressed myself this week. Got to play ACC on a prototype rig running a 3080 card and DD wheel. All I can say is, my word! Not sure if it was the obscene frame rate or the more advanced version number PC version is at, but I averaged 3-4 seconds per lap quicker pretty much anywhere. It was a fab experience!

    @GoodGame.eXistenZ drives another blinder and shows us how it should be done. I think it was a case of "here's one I did earlier," and if I could be cheeky having studied the vid, I think there are a few tenths still on his table! @F1415182235 is also in the top echelon with a sub 1.24, a cracking time and the rest of us need to practice. Heavily!

    Only @Laughing Gravy and I have attempted the "real man's challenge." Respect to both of us!

    @mike reynolds has cracked the 6 lap barrier! His excitement at doing so and subsequent shocker lap made me smile in empathy. What a familiar experience! Good to see a human response! @Peggy11 is nearly there, but presumably Mike has time in hand.
