• Historics mid-summer fun race with Lola T70 MKII at Riverside July 16th

    Join us on Sunday July 16th for special fun race with the all new Lola T70 MKII Spyder at Riverside (Nascar layout) in Assetto Corsa. The race is open to all CMS members. This is an opportunity to keep our racing muscle in shape during the summer and have a good time with the all new T70 which is such a wonderful car.

    This will be a spec race featuring the Can-Am Lola T70, which requires download of the free mod car and Riverside track

    Track download link v1.1 Riverside.

    Car download link v0.9 Lola T70 MKII Spyder.

    The Lola T70 was the car to beat in the first Can-Am (group 7) championship in 1966. Dan Gurney won the Riverside race with the T70, of course!

    The T70 won the USSRC championship in both 1966 and 1967. Lola sold its cars to private teams which used drivers such as George Follmer, Dan Gurney, Mark Donohue, Roger Penske and Buck Fulp.
    T70s won the first two rounds of the Can-Am championship in 1966 which was eventually won by John Surtees who was also involved in development of the car.

    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!

    The server is now 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 Turn 6 as shown on here on the track map. Note we will use the “Nascar” layout which shortcuts T6 with the “Spike”.

      Cool. Is this requiring a signup, or do we just show up and drive?
