For the second season of Race Club I decided to switch cars to the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO. The test sessions we’d had before the start of season showed that I was roughly 2 seconds a lap quicker as well as being a lot more consistent and less error prone in it. Like Season 1, Season 2 would be a 12 round championship with a mix of weather, a 1 hour endurance half way through and a 2 hour season finale. The other rounds would be 2 30 minute sprints. All of the tracks had been voted on my the drivers and we started the season at Suzuka.Continue reading
Race Club was formed by a few members from different PS4 ACC leagues. The aim was to create a league of known clean drivers who were all of a similar level which would give us some fair and close racing. The world of ACC leagues is full of blindingly quick drivers and this can sometimes mean that the cars spread out very quickly after the first couple of laps and there’s nobody to race. This wouldn’t be a problem in Race Club. After the first couple of races we invited a few more drivers and would be happy to accept other drivers of a similar level in the future.Continue reading
The final round of the championship was an 80 minute endurance at Silverstone on a cold evening. Sitting in 4th in the table I needed a good result in order to keep it. with black306mi not taking part in the final race, I was only really worried about B_Rated.Continue reading
For some reason, Imola isn’t a circuit I do well at (even by my standards!) and no matter how much I enjoy driving it I always seem to get caught in other peoples accidents, hit or make a silly mistake and it’s all over. After a couple of practice races during the week against both the AI and some real opponents I knew I had some consistency and if I could hold it together I’d be able to finish in the top 10.Continue reading
The 9th round of the championship brought us to California and the legendary Laguna Seca circuit. Sadly, there wasn’t a lot of sunshine and the race would be run at dusk, finishing in the dark. It was also going to be a single 80 minute endurance rather than a pair of sprints.Continue reading
After a couple of good results as Suzuka last week I was keen to start a run of good results. With only 2pt seperating black306mi and I in the league I really needed to beat him. I didn’t get as much practice in as I would have liked and was averaging lap times in the mid 1:46 bracket by the time the race started. I’d done a race distance the previous night and concentrated on fuel, tire pressures and consistency.Continue reading
The good news is that my recordings for this race worked… and despite the wet I actually had a good couple of races too. Unlike the previous weeks long race, this week we’d be doing 2 30 minute sprints, each with its own practice and qualifying sessions.Continue reading
After taking a few weeks off from updating the site and my social media I don’t remember much about this one. It’s not helped by having a problem with the recording so I only have the last 25 minutes of the 80 minute race in the dark.Continue reading
Friday the 5th saw the delayed round 4 of the MRC league arrive at Zolder for 2 30 minute sprints. Although the track was dry it was very cloudy and cold and after a tough day at work it was going to be 2hrs hard work with all the practice and qualifying sessions.Continue reading
Round 5 of the ESR league took us to the short Belgian track of Zolder. The track has lots of long straights and hard braking points and, with plenty of laps under my belt I was feeling quite good about the race.
I’d done quite a lot of practice, initially concentrating on getting my tire pressures consistent and then making a few other smaller changes. I’d done some calculations on fuel and even tested them out in a full race length successfully.
