    Default Historics Spring Season Race 3 - Charade 8km

    Join us on Sunday June 17th for the final event in the Historics Spring Season - Charade 8km.

    This is a dramatic track! Modern Charade is one of my favorite all-time tracks, such a pretty layout in the hills of France. We raced the historic 8km layout once in rFactor, and I remember it being unbearably bumpy- this version in AC is infinitely better, and looks just fantastic. This will be a slower speed adventure than The Glen, but feels more in period for the Maserati. We should have a blast!



    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, and pits stops are not required.

    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.



    We will have a long Orange Zone for this event, through T8 as shown on the track map. The track is tight and hilly, pass with care!

    Thanks for putting this up so soon Mike! I have not run this track since running GPL in the early 2000s. Can't wait to try out the M250F on this A/C version! IIRC, there are some scenes filmed at it in the 1966 Grand Prix movie. But I don't think they include any on track footage... not sure.

    Likely I won't be there tonight. The kids schedules has them coming over for dad's day right at race time (7pm locally) and we are bowing when they get here. And it is about 90 in my office. Appreciate everyone's patience this season. Hopefully some time away will bring some renewed enthusiasm. Take Care.
