Generic Weekly Hotlap Christmas Challenge 207 – Christmas party – Insanitised, but socially distanced

Discussion in 'Console Lounge' started by Totall Wrytoff, Dec 19, 2020.

  1. Welcome to the end of the year WHC Party for 2020, Weekly Hotlap Challenge 207 - Christmas party - Insanitised, but socially distanced

    Mike Reynolds and I have cooked up a festive menu of Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione challenges to run over the next two weeks, but first, you’ve got to get to the party on time!
    upload_2020-12-19_17-48-28.png

    Get to Lunch on time!

    AC and ACC Race Challenges

    There are two intro Race challenges to complete before you get to Christmas lunch.

    In Assetto Corsa you’ve got the family on board, slow traffic and less than fifteen minutes to get to the party!
    In Assetto Corsa Competizione you got serious competition and only five minutes!
    All of the details are in “How to Play” below.


    Assetto Corsa:
    5 Lap Championship Race

    Car: Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio vs Abarth 595 SS
    Track: Highlands
    upload_2020-12-19_17-49-57.png
    Around the Highlands there is patchy congestion caused by slow drivers, they don’t use the rear view mirror and seem to drift around across the road. You’ll hit the traffic twice in the five laps, hopefully not literally. With damage set to 100%, even a glancing blow can be terminal. Not to mention the reaction you’d get from the front passenger seat!
    Ouch. Tricky party….

    Tyres and Fastest Lap
    Tyres: Hypercar Road at 37 psi all round (hot)
    Fastest Lap: 2:31.027 set by Jakub Krcma


    Assetto Corsa Competizione:
    5 Mins Single Make Quick Race

    Car: Porsche 991 II GT3 Cup
    Track: Silverstone
    upload_2020-12-19_17-50-39.png
    At a wet Silverstone, the traffic is moving considerably faster!
    This is a “last to 1st challenge” in the rain. Your placement is based on finishing position, number of laps (3 most likely) and overall time.
    You’ve only got five minutes to get from 10th to 1st and everyone is driving a Porsche. At least you’ll be alone in the car, provided you’ve switched “Bob” off.

    Tyres:
    Ideal GT3 operating pressures are around 27.5 psi

    -----------------
    Menu

    Starter
    Assetto Corsa:
    Hotlap

    Car: RUF RT12
    Track: Barcelona Moto
    upload_2020-12-19_17-52-28.png
    This should blow away any fogginess of festive over indulgence.
    We’ve only used the Ruf RT12 once before and we all like a Porsche with the wick turned right up! I’ve gone for Midnight Purple but may well try the Lime too. Circuit de Catalunya has a great flow but it’s quite tricky to put a hotlap together. You’ll have fun trying though!
    I predict a wide spread of times for this event!

    Tyres and Fastest Lap
    Tyres: Semislicks – Front: 32 psi Rear 33 psi (hot)
    Fastest Lap: 1:54.742, set by GoodGame.eXistenz in July this year

    -----------------

    Main Course
    Assetto Corsa:
    Hotlap - “The Turkey”

    Car: Maserati 250F 12C
    Track: Zandvoort
    upload_2020-12-19_17-53-46.png
    Fangio’s motor.
    With the full, twelve cylinders
    Therefore, it is one of, if not the most, classic racing car in the game.
    This is the Christmas main course! You’ll have to show a bit of restraint here. If you got at it too hard, you’ll regret it later!
    Zandvoort is a great track. Undulating and curvy, it feels epic in the Classic F1 car. Apply full throttle with extreme care and only occasionally. The tyres can’t take it. As you would expect of a main course, it is extremely satisfying, so take your time…

    Tyres and Fastest Lap
    Tyres: Vintage GP 57s - 40 psi all round
    Fastest Lap: 2:05.041 set by Esa Mikkola in 2018


    Assetto Corsa Competizione:
    10 mins Hotstint – “The Ham”

    Car: Audi R8 LMS GT4
    Track: Misano
    upload_2020-12-19_17-54-5.png
    Christmas Lights!
    You’ll need them! It’s such a long lunch, it has got dark. This is a night time challenge in the GT4 Audi R8. Its 5.2-litre V10 engine offers a healthy 488 bhp and is hooked up to a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission. Anyone can buy one, for just 198,000 Euros and it is eligible for 27 different racing competitions. The main one though, is ACC Hotstints!
    Can you keep it all together in the dark at Misano, for ten minutes?

    Tyres:
    Ideal GT4 operating pressures are between 26.3- 27.2 psi

    -----------------

    Christmas Pudding
    Assetto Corsa:
    Hotlap

    Car: Mercedes-Benz C9 1989 LM
    Track: Imola
    upload_2020-12-19_17-54-31.png
    It’s Christmas, so we have to have a Group C.
    The “Sauber” Merc, the 917 Porsches and the Mazda 787B are some of the most exciting cars in the game.
    Just to refresh and re-whet the appetite, the 905 kg Merc’s 800 bhp comes from a five litre, 90° V8 with Twin KKK Turbochargers, developed by a Swiss engine specialist called Heini Mader, (apparently, as cover for Mercedes Racing involvement.) Happy Christmas to Heini!
    Sweet! 800bhp and 905kg means Happy Christmas to us too!

    Tyres and Fastest Lap
    Tyres: Soft, Medium and Hard Slicks 90s - 30 psi (hot) all round, for all compounds
    Fastest Lap: 1:36.695 set by Alessandro Pino in 2017


    Assetto Corsa Competizione:
    Hotlap

    Car: FREE CHOICE
    Track: Spa
    upload_2020-12-19_17-54-52.png
    The final course is up to you. Christmas Pudding or Mince Pies? You choose! (I would try both!)
    Which is the fastest GT3 racer around Spa? How quickly can you get round? You can check Google, or pick your favourite ACC car on this classic track. It is a free choice and all in for the fastest lap.

    Tyres:
    Ideal GT3 operating pressures are around 27.5 psi

    Less than 15 minutes. :) Good enough.

    I'm receiving my WHL pension now. A sedate trip around Highlands with a manual gearbox will tempt me out though.

    Good luck to everyone for Christmas and for 2021. There's a storm coming, one way or another.

    @mike reynolds - AMG for pure speed? or (little more scary) Audi?

    Since update and new "yaw angle physics" most setups need some tweaks - they are much more "snappy".
    I lowered the rear 2-3mm for example and it was much better.

    again @mike reynolds - hope you like my christmas livery more than the lovely cow:

    Green - for our beloved Nordmann fir
    Red - for the oldschool Christmas baubles
    Silver - there used to be more tinsel (German inside joke by Loriot)

    I did another Porsche race but it was 0.9s slower. But i saved the replay on my PS4. How can i upload that here?

    Never mind, for some reason it only saved 3:52 of the whole thing. Lame

    Quite a bit of weaving required to avoid the traffic.
    Just like a real-life holiday drive!

    Considering the speed difference, this was quite a tight gap that required luck, due to lack of judgement!:)
