    Links not working. IndyCars look ace.
  5. Jonatan Åcerclinth Licensed Driver

    Thank you for getting me aware of this :)

    Updated the track download, uploading the Mod to DropBox and should be up by 7 o'clock BST.
  6. Chris Shepherd Licensed Driver

    How many minutes is the race Jonatan ? I don't know the lap time. Thanks.
  7. Rob Hermans SRP Manager

    Fixed. :)
    Pocono is a 2.5 mile track, RL indycars complete a lap in 41-42 secs. A 50 lap race would last about 35mins...but I've no idea how close a virtual car/track would be to those times!
  8. Jonatan Åcerclinth Licensed Driver

    It is about the same lap time as Rob says :)

    I think that I completed a lap with the default car in 43 seconds so it would be about 30-40 minutes.
  9. Andy Reed Licensed Driver

    Sign me up as a maybe please, Still working to strengthen wrist. :)
  10. Ethan Bass Licensed Driver

    This does sound like amazing fun. Proper Oval cars on a proper Oval (but I do want to see these on a road course at some point). :D
  11. Chris Shepherd Licensed Driver

    Yer would very much prefer a race trAck :)
  12. Ethan Bass Licensed Driver

    Erm Pocono is freezing my rFactor and no other track does this (default tracks anyway) and this is a fresh full install.
  13. Rob Hermans SRP Manager

    I haven't tested it myself, as I'm not a fan of oval racing, but I'm sure Jonatan has. Have you tried rebuilding the HAT file, Ethan?

    ...rFactor/userdata/LOG/HAT → delete <track name>.HAT

    failing that, maybe an alternative download? www.mediafire.com/download/8989e8889cbs87t/Pennsylvania.7z
  14. Jonatan Åcerclinth Licensed Driver

    I've tried it and I had no problems with it...... :confused:

    Try what Rob said or try the alternate download as he also says.

    Will give it another look to see if there is anything wrong with the track I uploaded as it could be that I made a small misstake even though I double checked what I was doing :oops:

    Regarding a Road Course, we will head to Infinion/Sears Point Raceway next week or the week after that :)
  15. Ethan Bass Licensed Driver

    Might I suggest an mid 90's long Beach Layout for a road course that isn't normally run.

    I deleted the .HAT file then ran on Pocono again and once again after a few laps it freezes completely.

    Do you need an account for MediaFire cause I haven't been able to download from them all week.
  16. Jonatan Åcerclinth Licensed Driver

    Will keep that in mind, thanks for the suggestion :)

    As for the track, I can't think of any reason for it to not work as I did a racerun earlier this evening without any problems :confused:

    Regarding MediaFire, no, I don't think so. I've downloaded a lot of tracks from MediaFire downloads and never had a problem.
  17. Andy Reed Licensed Driver

    I did some rtrainer runs round Brianza Oval and was struggling with my left hand on gearing and turning at the same time,
    But with a few more days on the weights I hope to be ok to drive, not sure if I will have the pace though. but will keep pushing and training.
  18. Andy Reed Licensed Driver

    After some intense strengthening my wrist I have had to have a few days rest, as it was in a huge amount of pain, but I am going to hit RF again 2day, and see how it goes, will post an update l8r, or edit this post
  19. Andy Reed Licensed Driver

    Took the Nscr out @ rf400 for around 30 laps. was consistent and hand was aching around the last few laps.

    so I need to install the mod and do a few runs with that mod, and see how it goes
    if not I wud like to join the race as a spectator if poss though, as this does look fun
  20. Andy Reed Licensed Driver

    Thanx for a great race, and the setup :) really enjoyed getting back behind my wheel. and these were the right car for me to start with,
    It was great fun getting undercut passing and passing on the outside, and we still managed to finish with .0023 @ the finish line after 50 laps.

    Looking forward to the next track and really hope more will join in the fun, as these cars and the mod are great to drive :)
