    Please make sure you installed the nkpro update just released, otherwise you can't join the server.

    Hi Andrea, do we need to send in the replay of our PB for the open wheel series?

    Hello netKar pro fans. I'm new here and I signed up for Laguna Seca race. But I can't figure out how Prequalification works and how it is with groups. There will be 2 servers one for group A and another for group B?
    Thanks for help.

    prequalification is based on laptimes of drivers throughout the week on the RSR server. simply join the radiators-champ server, put in a hotlap and youre done. laptimes can be viewed here:

    http://radiators-champ.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=93

    dont forget, these times are only to allocate the groups. there will be another qualification session at the event which will decide the starting grid

    good luck Very Happy

    There is no need to send any replay for this race. We think there is no way you can cut to get some advantages here. The sand will slow you down.

    Prequalification times will be used for the entry list.
    Please allocate to the race within 12:00 tomorrow, so we can look for the right amount of servers. Thanks for your help.

    Well I'm 16th on entry list.
    http://www.radiators-champ.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=70
    What that means for me? Am I supposed to race on server no 2? There will be just 3 drivers?

    we can have the race anyway if you guys want. We have a server available. Let's see once we are in chat what's the real amount of guys, and we will decide all together.

    What a nightmare the fuel !! I entered to the box with 0.3 left, then in second part of race i had to save fuel for few laps.
    A good second place, but always in Server B Embarassed

    download link group A replay:
    replay_group A

    Nice event, Orsetti and Steverink finished at just 0.2 sec. gap after 36 laps ! (close finish)
    Good qualy and second race stint for me, did a pb again in qualy like at donington as well,
    but then very bad luck for me + Clive after just the first 2 laps or so, (with a light damage at the car, because of a slight contact at the start) as I lost the car uphill to corkscrew on the brakes
    and another car (Clive) crashed into mine, he was not able too see me standing there as he was coming up the hill, since it happened 'behind' the hill. I thought of pushing maybe 2% more
    on the braking zone at that moment to maybe close up to the two cars in front and that was enough to lose the rear on slightly to hard braking for a moment.
    This place is a bit similar to turn 4 at Donigton (at the end of uphill), you need some more brake balance to the front with those cars at such palces to be more save on brakes regarding the rear.
    After ESC back to pits I was driving not so seriously anymore at the first stint of the race, since I thought I'm last anyway, so I pushed here and there and got off track sometimes, but at the second stint after
    the regular pit my car felt great in the first laps (I balanced it very well), just as the tires began to lose some grip, it was not possible to push anymore at certain corners -t2, t4 (left), t8 (left, after corkscrew))- (some aliens can do, but for me mostly it does not work with worn tires).
    Due to the fact that others did some mistakes too and crashed their cars, I gained some positions back anyway.

    My start was not perfect -but not totally bad anyway-, I got into a little bit too low RPM at 1st gear, because of some a little bit too much lifting of the clutch.

    ..see you next time.. ! Wink

    Ho scaricato il replay per rivedere la vostra gara ma anche con l'idea di fare un video, ma con mia grande sorpresa le auto girano in cielo tra le nuvole ! LOL
    Di solito (vedi altri simulatori) questo succede se manca la pista ma non credo possa essere il caso mio ... Qualcuno ha una spiegazione razionale !?

    I think I know why. You, or Marco, might not have the latest version of the track.
    You can download the latest on our download section on the website

    When I watch it every car looks normal, no differences.
    Only thing I saw, was a funny melt of two cars without contact happening (one car drives half through another) at the last laps before the first right corner and after that before the left on the short straight, due to Illiano rejoned
    the event in the last maybe ten laps and so his car was just visible as a wire-frame for the others (so he could drive through other cars without contact).

    The car visible in the pics is also Illiano, who left the event, because of frustration and rejonied later, so that might cause it, but for me his 'two cars' look normal (one standing at the pit exit where he exit the event in lap 1, the other on track again at the last laps).

    Che poi è quello che ho ipotizzato anche io, tipico inconveniente di quando manca la pista giusta. Io avevo effettivamente una versione precedente, ma anche mettendo l'ultima, appena scaricata, le auto del Replay sempre in cielo stanno ! LOL
