PostSubject: Race Night with Pace Cars   23/5/2012, 12:12

Hello,

Trying to setup this race with SSD PBPro SH base unit

This Thursday we are looking at running a race night for our LeMans class, This runs with LMP and GT cars
The LMP cars doing longer on a tank of fuel to simulate the faster speed they would have on track
As I can't see how to make them faster than the GT cars in the software

Now we are only expecting 5 of us this week so I would like to run each heat with 3 drivers and 3 pace cars,
as this will leave 2 people to marshall each race

The format we run for this class is 15 mins heats with a point for each lap completed and 5 points for the fastest lap plus normal race win points for 1,2 3rd etc.

SO how do I set this up so I get 3 pace cars in each heat and also fixed lanes I would like to run them as ID 1,2 and 6

Any help apreciated

Michael

The heat editor can't generate this kind of race but with the export/import feature of the heat editor you can do it:
- in the heat editor generate the heats for drivers only (no ghost) by using lanes 3,4,5 and when it 's ok click on the "Export" Button and specify the file name
- in notepad or Excel edit the file and add the Ghost on lanes 1,2,6
- in the heat editor click on the "Import" button and that's it

I made a little video with a simple example:

That worked really well

Thanks for that

2 more questions

Is there anyway to stop the pace cars counting laps as they won the race

We only want them for traffic

and why when you move tot he next heat does the lap count carry over ?

So on the next heat we want to see who won that heat but some drivers already start with more laps

Because driver is still present in the next heat, lap count of the current segment/heat is displayed in the column "S.Lap"

Hi Again,

One more thing I am struggerling getting my head around is how are the laps counted ?

We run our championship nights with each driver racing on each lane

So I set it up and get all the heats and the 1st heat / segment runs ok then onto the next one and the cars go back on the grid but the guys who were in the last race get a lap counted as soon as they cross the start line but the new guy in the race has to do a full lap before he starts counting ????

Why is each segment not run as a new race ?

new drivers in the race have to start BEFORE the S/F line and drivers who already race have to start where they was on the track.
