Good evening all,
Apologies bit later than usual but here are the results from the final week of the event.

Week 4 winner
This was a close run week this week, just 2 points in it but the award goes to dMr Smite, who I believe put in their best lap at the end of the week. Congrats to dMr Smite!

Overall it was a rather competitive week with racers having their best week yet!

Here is the overall breakdown of standings for the week

And here are the best S1, S2 and S3 times



Hopefully everyone enjoyed this and it was a good reason for me to get my wheel back out which is what I had hoped. So thanks to all that took part!

Going forward

There have been people wanting this to carry on in some form and as not everyone got to pick a track and car combo last time around, I suggest it carries on in the same format and people submit their requests.

Thanksfully the admin page for handling the server is really easy to do and everything can be scheduled in ahead of time so that it changes automatically reducing the manual task of managing it.

So going forwards, if people want to select a car and track please put your recommendations in the spreadsheet and an admin will setup the race and schedule it in on a first come first serve basis. It can run for 1 week before switching to the next one. Custom cars and tracks are allowed and can be found at Race Department here. If you decide to go for a custom car and track please include a link to them from a file sharing service alongside Race Department. Race Department has incredibly slow download times, we are talking 150kb/s and 50+ mins to download  400mb track.

Good afternoon all,
Week 3 has now wrapped here and we are now in to the final week. This week the car and track have been picked by pesteh aka rabble:
Car: Porsche 919 Hybrid 2016
Track: Bathurst, Australia

This is a custom/addon track and if you do not have it, link and instructions are in the spreadsheet

You have from today, 24/04/2023 up until 30/04/2023 to get some times submitted so go go go!

Good evening all,

We are now in to week 3 so yet another new track and car combo. This week you can all thank Chaos as his picks were:

Car: BMW M3 E92
Track: Barcelona

So from today the 17th April 2023 until 23rd April 2023 go and get some times recorded.

Week 2 Results
As per last week I have updated the spreadsheet with the results from week 2 and will copy here for ease.

Congrats to Rabble for winning week 2, yet again getting maximum points for the best lap time and also the best S1, S2 and S3 times. We had a new contender this week which means the maximum points was 12 for the week. That means Rabble scored 48 in total! Someone needs to remind him to go back to work at some point.

Yes mate, crack on! It's open to all of dmw, no need to ask permission, the more the merrier!

We are quite active in the racing section on Discord if you want to hang out there or have any questions, someone will respond. If you want to just put some laps in on your own, no don't feel pressured in to joining the voice chat either. Most are friendly, apart from that rabble, I'd suggest not engaging in conversation with that one.

Completed room, booked form
If you think £100 is to high and you are really just looking for someone to come and collect them, I'd just take them to a charity shop and be done with it. Otherwise pick a number between 1-99 and and try your luck :D
I can't edit my damn post again.

Anyway, even though there a lot of films here, if someone were to buy them in order to turn a profit at all that's a lot of work trying to get rid of them so they aren't going to want to pay a lot.
Easiest options would be post to Gumtree/Facebook market place/eBay with a finger in the air value of £100-£120 and hope someone local would want to pick them up. If you had to post them out, I imagine it would cost ~£20 and that's additional time and effort. There are some good movies in there but people are likely to already own them and they go on sale fairly frequently so can be had individually quite cheap.

The other option is to take them to a CEX/local pawn brokers and take whatever they will give you and you'd get them all gone in 1 go.

Or, if you aren't really attached to them or the ~£100 (minus any shipping if you had to), take them to a local charity shop and let them deal with selling them?

Depends how much you value your time and effort. Dealing with time wasters on market places is so frustrating that sometimes I just can't be bothered and will just donate items.

Apologies I should have attached screenshots and made it a bit clearer.

As pesteh mentions, the fastest sectors are not from the fastest lap segment. There's a separate section (see pesteh's screenshot) that contains the fastest sectors, I am using this. The reasoning is that I am hoping that it helps close the gap a little bit and makes the overall standings closer and more competitive.

Good morning all!

A new week means a new track and car and this week, courtesy of MikeP we have:
Track: Brands Hatch
Car: Praga R1

So you have from today, the 10th April until the 16th April to get some times recorded for the week. Go go go!

Last weeks results
I have updated the spreadsheet with details on the scoring system but will share it here for now.

There is 1 point to be earned for each position you finish up the leaderboard based on the number of participants. As an example, week 1 had 11 different participants so that would be 11 points for first.
In addition to the fastest lap, there are additional points to be earned for each of the 3 sectors. This will follow the same scoring system. That means at the end of week 1 there are:
11 points to be earned for fastest overall lap
Plus, 33 additional points for sectors 1, 2 and 3

The maximum score for week one would be 44

So getting to last weeks result. Congrats to Rabble who got maximum points last week scoring all 44.

Pos   Name                   Points
1   Rabble           44
2   Michael Orvis   40
3   Simagule           34
4   uni                   32
5   MikeP           28
6   -=.dMw.=-Sulky   23
7   Myopic Sniper   23
8   Tunarin           13
9   Milli                   12
10   Chaos           11
11   -=.dMw.=-A Twig   4

Additional info on sectors can be found in the spreadsheet under each week going forwards and also here on SimView. Be sure to select "Qualifying" on the left handside dropdown menu for the table.

On a side note, rabble also did 438 laps on Laguna Seca, with 335 of those being valid. Vastly more than anyone else :D

Just a heads up that tomorrow @6pm is the end of this weeks track and car so if you want to get a time in or improve your current time, you've still got a little while.

I can't edit last post but one last thing.

Rabble has set up some very handy feature that enables a live view of the server:

It will show current car, track, best time and by who, cheers rabs!

haha thanks for updating. I was doing it in a rush before heading away for a few days, that'll teach me.

Please see this Google sheet for information on the cars, tracks, links where necessary, instructions for installing custom content.

The server should record everyones times and we should be able to see them at the end of the week. But, as a precaution, if you are playing on the server and you finish a session for the day, grab a screenshot of your best time and save it. At the end of the week (or whenever you are done for the week) please post the image into the spreadsheet with your name clearly visible into the corresponding weeks sheet.

It is up to you to enter your best time!

The screenshot is just for proof as I don't want to have to go through everyones images on a Sunday evening and enter it myself.

All times to be entered by 6pm on the Sunday please to allow enough time.

The server will swap to the new car and track on the Monday after.

If I have missed you out of the list of participants, please add yourself to the overview and each week you are taking part in.

We are looking to start on the 3rd April and the schedule will be this:

* Week 1 - 03/04/2023 - 09/04/2023
* Week 2 - 10/04/2023 - 16/04/2023
* Week 3 - 17/04/2023 - 23/04/2023
* Week 4 - 24/04/2023 - 30/04/2023

Cars and tracks for 3 of the 4 weeks picked, waiting on the last person I asked to pick to provide me with their choice.

The first track and car will be a standard car and track. We have some custom cars and tracks picked for other weeks. I will contact Whitey to discuss getting them added to the server.

I will provide more details on the FIRST car and track Sunday as I am away tomorrow until late Saturday night.

For the custom cars, if people could download and install: it makes it much easier. I will provide full instructions and links for install the custom cars and tracks closer to the time.
