Generic Weekly Hotlap Challenge 220 - Bullish Maserati and a Stoney Merc

    Weekly Hotlap Challenge 220 - Bullish Maserati, and

    The Challenge:
    Car: Maserati MC12 GT1
    Track: Red Bull Ring GP



    After a couple of weeks of unruly street cars, I figured it was high time we had a proper race car on a legitimate race track. There’s nothing like the feeling of going around corners like your on rails. Thanks to the aero and stiff suspension the Maserati is a full blown race car. I’m surprised this car doesn’t get much love in AC as its an impressive track machine in its own right, especially given that its 15 years old now.

    This car has all the setup options a competent race car should have, and it can be daunting to try and dial in a setup that works the best for yourself. I use this crib sheet by Chris Hayes (he has a youtube channel). Check it out and let me know if it helped you out at all.


    I have a bit of love/hate relationship with the Red Bull Ring. Similar to Imola its a track where getting a proper exit out of the really low speed corners is crucial to setting a good laptime. I find that very difficult to do consistently. Also, its possible to cheat a fair bit at this track as the track limits are fairly generous especially in T1 and between t8 and t9. So if you follow F1 you’ll be tempted to keep two wheels inside the white lines, but since were on AC you can completely abuse that rule and Bernie won’t say a word about it!

    Top time on RSR is 1.27.099.

    I couldn't find any info on ideal tire psi's. I'll update once I am able to test this combo out.

    So I'll make a start : )

    PC 1:26:596

    The first sector is always super difficult to get right on this track. In fact 95% of my attemps "fail" here, as the braking for both corner in S1 is tricky especially in cars without ABS. Even in my attempt here the first sector was not ideal. In addition the MC12 is sensible on the brakes and rear will up easily. So I advice to go for a higher braking balance towards the front.

    Video will follow later.
  4. ACC


    I did three stints just to try, but I'm so far to being fast...
    the problem is that I always have little time to dedicate to it, and silverston without a good setup and a lot of feeling you don't take out the time.
    I won't be able to drive until next weekend ... good challenge to all!

    Trying to get on here later tonight. Sub 2min has been difficult for me in ACC with my beloved R8.

    Never driven the AMG before so should be an interesting challenge. I have heard its and understeering monster. Is this true?

    I do like my cars to rotate

    Firs run got me a decent time.

    New to the Merc, but its very stable and "easy" to drive fast. Need to tweak tire pressures sure sure. They were about 1 psi too high.

    Best lap was invalid, blehhhh.

    Got the tires in the right window. Front left gets super hot though, trying to keep that guy cool.

    Got the tweaks I needed to get her to rotate and it worked wonders.

    Wrecked on the 2nd attempt so i stopped.

    Well I was gonna post a vid here with my lap and setup but apparently I have reached my daily upload limit for the first time ever. Guess you'll have to wait till tomorrow...

    I upped the TC one click, adjust psi, fuel, gears, aero, and the brake balance. Everything else is basically stock.

    Seems like everyone has found their own pace in the Maserati this week. The leader board has a nice even distribution of lap times, they all are separated by about a second. I wonder if some setup tweaks would help. I didn't spend much time on the setup this week as the car handles really well out of the box, and truth be told, RBR doesn't require a lot in the way of setup. RBR is mostly a point and squirt track. How much are you willing to extend those track limits? I'm guessing some stretch a little more than others :)

    The three contestants in ACC have all managed to score themselves a podium finish so far! Top spot was earned this week by steady improvements to the setup, and a desire to go faster. Thanks for setting the example @SlowGrayAudi
