DriverSports OCD Raid | Saturday June 23 | R8 LMS | Spa-Francorchamps

Post  clacksman on Fri Jun 22, 2012 7:33 am

Welcome to the second online dealer raid event, this time using the Audi R8 LMS race cars. This week at Spa-Francorchamps, next week at Circuit de la Sarthe 2009. Assists (TCS/ABS) are set to 'off', but so is the weather.

i was the only one to make 2 pit stops (vs. 1), and still finished 30 seconds behind group. i'll take a guess that a pit stop is around 45 seconds. not too shabby.

clacks had an extended stop, but i find those unnecessary. thats what the pepsi bottle floating around the floorboards is for ... bounce

Pit stops here are nearly 20 seconds in slower cars, it's a real short pit lane. I think group pitted on lap 1.

In theory, yes, but then it gets under the pedals and Danica passes you ...

In to out may be 45 as you said, but the delta (what it costs you compared to running on track) is 20ish.

Sorry for botching finish order Rolling Eyes You two are correct.

Did have two make two pit stops, one on lap one for damage Evil or Very Mad, the second around lap 11 as the Audi really munches them RH tires. Had a blast reeling you in Agent, just wish you had better tires as that woulda been a fun battle. Just goes to show you can never quit digging. Was a bazillion seconds back after my forced pit on L1, but kept at it managed to bring her home on the top step What a Face Oh how I do love Spa.

I made 2 stops due to damage on lap two when I crashed right in front of you, and then on lap 11 for a routine stop. I count clacksman's extended stay on pit road as 2 stops as well, once to pit road, and once from pit road to the Spa Francorchamps "Care Center".

i guess i missed all those pitstops everyone was making .... lol! too focused on trying to stay with clacksman early, and then staying out of groups reach later on. by the time group and rooster caught me on lap 14, my tires were again trashed .... but i doubled my distance in the middle stint on that tire set, which made me happy. i did my fairshare of sliding around, but i never got any damage.

i will mention one spot that i'm sure had clacksman chuckling .... he was behind me coming down the front straight and as we started up the hill, i kicked the back end too much for the right mid-way, and what a slide I went on. i used all the runoff at the top of the hill, still sliding .... and pulled back on track right behind clacks. i was lmao at that one, but its what really toasted my tires. car didnt handle the same after that. Anyway, i found it really amusing .... Smile

good times fellas .....

It's easy to miss pitstops here, between how short they are and how close to the regular road the pit lane is (can't see easily on the map if your map is fullsize). I mostly know g pitted because I saw him die in the mirror exiting Blanchimond on lap 1.
