    Default Historics Fall Season Race 3 - Thruxton

    Join us on Sunday October 29th for the third event in the Historics 2017 Fall Season - Thruxton.

    Thruxton is a fast, sweeping circuit that should keep the Escort on the edge of adhesion for much of the lap.

    I drove right past this track on my way to Southampton last year- no time to stop on that trip, but if I get back there it looks like an adventure!



    This event will be standing start. AC now allows gear selection before the green, but be aware that it also allows (and penalizes) false starts! So don't go before the green!

    We will run 1x fuel, with a mandatory pit stop. The pit window is open for the entire race. You must take at least 1 liter of fuel during your stop, but tire changes are optional.

    The server is set for 2 minutes between the Qualifying session expiring and the start of the race. Be sure to check the remaining time when the session advances so as not to get caught out.



    The Orange Zone for this event will be through Chruch corner as shown here on the (clockwise) track map.

    Race Schedule
    Practice: 8-8:45 p.m. Central Time (US) - 45 min
    Qualify: 8:45-9:00 p.m. Central Time (US) – 15 min
    Warmup: 9:00-9:05 p.m. Central Time (US) - 5 min
    Race: 9:05 p.m. Central Time (US) - 60 min

    Note that AC (finally) supports timed races, so the lap count will not be pre-determined.

    Download the skin pack here.

    Ken was nice enough to customize the reserved skins with our driver names - thanks Ken! This is an optional download, but adds a nice touch, especially if you are one of our reserved drivers.

    Lap tracker is acting funky lately... my online laps are not showing in the live timing tabs (i suspect I'm not the only one!)
    Anyhow it's OK for the race as we'll use the raw output file for the official results.

    I'm getting to like this track the more I lap. Really a nice flow and barely never going in straight line!

    I noticed the same thing, no laps recorded for me either. No biggie.

    It's a good track for these cars, need to remain in control or ...

    Will the server be up during the day today? Before official practice starts?

    Yes, the server is up- are you having trouble connecting?

    I would love to join you guys tonight. But for some reason A/C is not working correctly. It launches OK. But whenever I click on an action (drive, replay, benchmark, etc.) it starts to load the action for a few seconds and then just stops doing it at the screen I started at. I don't understand what has changed since running fine at Fuji in the F312. I loaded the Thruxton track and updated to the name embedded car set and nothing A/C seems to execute. Doesn't matter what car or track I choose. It starts the action with the typical A/C loading screen for a few seconds, and then just stops

    All other race sims (including Steam based sims) are working OK. I am not sure what has changed that is causing the game to just abort any action. Any ideas what to look into? If not, I'm not sure I can fix this in time for tonight. Or ever, for that matter.

    Sounds terminal. Might as well just pull the plug. He he.

    Seriously, try doing a file integrity chk of your ass cor files. Not home right now, so can't tell where that is, in steam, but I think it is in the downloads section. Search around and that may fix your prob. Good luck.

    I'm not seeing anything at all with CMS.... Will check again now.

    Only just got free'd up for this evening at 4PM MST. Busy day.
