    European invasion of America - HLC ends 08/26/2010

    Post by Guest on Tue 07 Aug 2012, 6:18 am

    Ok, here we go again...

    after the response on the last HLC here's the next quest for you.

    R3 - Sebring Club
    and
    D - Road Atlanta Club

    How high can you push the European car of your choice on the lb's ranking on both tracks. Any car and tune is allowed as long as you use a European make. Times set with other cars than European doesn't count and won't be considered.
    Anyone who takes part in this competition should be able to improve his times easily. so only times set between today and 26th of August will be rated.

    Prizes as follows:

    top100 times are worth a car/ some cars of choice of 500.000 cr.
    top 1000 200.000 cr.
    top 2000 150.000 cr.
    top 5000 75.000 cr.
    on every single track.

    The overall winner by additional time of both tracks will receive a bonus of 300.000 cr.
    the 2nd a bonus of 200.000 cr.
    the 3rd a bonus of 100.000 cr.

    So enter those tracks and burn a European skidmark into the American tarmac.

    I love that quote.

    I'll be sure to give this one a go.

    Just so I'm clear, I can use any European car but it has to be R3 class for Sebring and D class for Road Atlanta?

    That's tomorrow sorted! Thanks for doing these, they're great fun!

    A car worth 100,000 cr. from me as to whoever sets a great time with a bizarre car!

    The Lotus Esprit Turbo (1980) is fairly quick around Rd Atlanta - I know this as I noted this car held my previous fastest lap on this circuit for D class - and its just taken me several attempts to beat it (using a variety of different cars). After much frustration, I finally set a time of 1:09.9 in the E-Type Jag. Checking the leaderboard, I discover that this places me well outside the top 4,000. Hopefully I can shave off a few more tenths with further practise... or failing that, perhaps find a quicker vehicle/set-up.

    Just finished my first session with the time attack I can't believe I got a 1:07:956 for Atlanta Club that put me at 564 that little lotus is a marvel, with a really good set up I bet it will do a little bit more, for the record I don't do tuning I just download what is available or Blue kindly gives me one of his super tunes.

    Back to Sebring .

    Thats quick! I am not far off you though with a 1:08.066. If I can get the corner after the long straight right I think I can take 0.2 seconds off. I either cut the corner and get a dirty lap, or break too late and lose all my speed Smile

    Good luck, good fun.

    My lovely little race carrot, the Peugeot 107, isn't the best choice for D- Class at this track. Rolling Eyes It is 3 seconds off the pace and normally I am 1 sec behind Jim, so I have to find another car...

    I used a car I won in a side comp when it was M3rockets turn at the bounty hunter a few months ago on the forza forums, so I don't have the tune.

    Anyway, I beat my time slighty. I used an Alfa 1986 Spider and the tune was by GSR DonPella78. You can really throw the car through the corners and its slightly quicker than the Elan

    The tune I used for R3 around Sebring Club was by ATM estremo in the Lotus 2-eleven by the way.

    Thank you, it's very good of you to share this so we can keep pushing those times down, it's great fun, I will give the spider a try soon.

    Oh! I should mention back to Sebring jim, I just slightly lowered the time, I'm sure you have plenty of reserve though Smile

    Good Racing.

    And I have to say I can keep up with you soul, even in my untuned Ferrari 312 P which has killed the speakers of my Samsung 42" flatscreen with his screaming sound.
