Generic WHL#61:Driving home for Christmas

    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap #61- Driving home for Christmas

    The Challenge.
    Car: Ferrari 250 GTO
    Track: Vallelunga Classic



    Christmas is all about family and going back to your roots. I'll be heading north to Alba to join the rest of the clan, so I thought it might be nice for Assetto Corsa to go home too.

    It had to be a Ferrari, and what better than the mythical 250 GTO.

    They only built 39, and you were supposed to have done 100 to get homologation for racing. How Enzo Ferrari tricked the authorities into believing that there were 100 is quite an amusing story, and a real insight into how things were back then.

    That lack of numbers has made the 250 GTO one of the most sought after (and therefore expensive) cars in the world. So don't be binning it!

    The Rules.
    Mode: Hotlap
    Time of day: Free
    Ambient Temp: 26 Degrees
    Setup: Free
    Controller: Free
    Assists: Factory
    Stability: Free

    If it isn't mentioned here then assume the setting is free.

    Please make sure you have the ambient temperature set correctly, and that you are in hotlap mode, I really don't like disallowing times!

    The Deadline.
    Monday January 1st 2018 - 22:00 GMT. Note the deadline is not Sunday night. I will be in no good state to do the results page on New Year's Eve.

    How to take part!
    To enter simply head into the game select Drive > Hotlap and choose the Ferrari 250 GTO and head to Vallelunga Classic . Make sure you setup the session using the settings detailed in this thread and hit the track!

    You can run as many laps as you like and update your times as often as you like, its simple :) All Platforms are welcome, it is all about having fun and enjoying Assetto Corsa.

    To submit a time, pause the game and select 'session' from the menu and screenshot this page or take a photo of your screen and post it in this thread - Note all the information from the screen is required including temperature, mode heading and of course the car being used!

    Feel free to post video clips and share information in here as well, but without the session screen your time will not be included (placing the session screen in a video clip is acceptable).

    You also need to state the time and your platform in the body of your post, this should be the first thing you do, the image should then be placed below the text. It would also be helpful to mark updated times with Improvement. This makes collating the results much easier.

    A leader board will be collated from time to time, this will keep everyone up to date on where they currently stand...Unfortunately editing of posts gets locked on this forum so this post will not be updated.

    Feel free to use the unofficial leader boardbut remember you still need to include the session screen in this thread to be included in the results.

    Good luck and have fun ;)

    To all of us happy hotlapping before the holidays begin!

    I spent Christmas & New Year there in 2008. Send the Mrs. off to the Fairmont and get myself over the top to the Larch Area. I'm no great skier but I loved it there. Happy days. Someday I hope to go back. You're lucky . :)

    haha after @Kembro shared above screenshot I found out I've set a time on the wrong Vallelunga track :eek:. Another confirmation I have to read the 'manual' better.

    We're staying home for the holidays. My wife has to work and take care of the elderly among us.

    Lake Louise still one of the beauties. About 15 years ago we spend a couple of weeks in Canada and travelled around in our rental motorhome. Begin of May we started our holiday with -5 celsius and ended with +15. Memory lane.

    @BrainsBush
    I'd say you're right on the money with this being the equivalent of Heaven and the other challenge Hell. I'll come by and visit (Heaven) in a bit after I'm done with the sights and sounds of the other place...

    Also, this is the one car I make guests/friends who come over drive at least once now. And yes, I tell them it's at least $30m USD and have a laugh at their reactions. Still can't believe a variant of the 250 traded hands for like $52m USD. But seriously, I do believe it's worth all that and even more just from the in-game theater experience that is AC's virtual recreation. Oh, and this challenge does bring back some fond memories of me struggling in the Porsche 935/78 Hotlap Challenge seemingly ages ago...

    I suppose this is closer to Heaven than the other challenge, but not by what I expected. That said, this is exactly why I got the Inverted pedals and the 350mm Oval wheel!

    Since I also have the Fanatec pedals (and wheel) it seems that I can set times with more consistency. Can be placebo effect or the pro experience of the driver himself, but I'm afraid it is becauseof the superior pedals.

    many people love this car. for me its it was not so entertaining.
    but it slowly begins. must understand what to do with this beauty. :)
    playing around with setup is so interesting. every change can be felt immediately (or i do think so ;) ).

    Awesome car, I feel sorry for console guys that you are missing on mods. Goodwood is a great quality mod and it's a very nice combo with this car (and other vintage cars).
