TTFRL GPL Season 5 preparations

OK, here is the current situation with regard to TTFRL GPL Season 5.

We're looking at a start time of the middle of April and proposing a 12 round calendar, which is yet to be decided.

The time scale is such because I'm off on hols in just over 3 weeks for just over 3 weeks, so there isn't much point in starting before then. This also gives me chance to develop and launch a new website, which will allow for a far more structured way in dealing with league administration.

Because of the different things which have been going on recently with GPL we have some choices to make on what class(es) we would like to run. Therefore I'm posting a poll to gauge what sort of races peeps would like to participate in.

Also in the next few weeks I'm hopefully acquiring a spare machine to be used as a dedicated server. I won't be able to operate it 24/7, but some evenings and weekends will allow people to have some practice and/or GPL get-togethers. I don't know the exact timescale yet though. Watch this space.

Last but not least there is a prize for this season's championship. More on that later.

I voted '69 cars because its the ones I feel quickets in, tried 65's and didn't get on well with them, likewise the stock 67 vehicles.

I find the 69's the most stable so i'm less likley to bin them and ruin mine, and possibly someone elses race.

I voted for a mix.

At the end of the day though, I don't really mind what we drive.

Hehe! Thanks Pete. Quicker might be a more accurate appraisal though!

I would say that I don't have either 65 mod or 69 installed yet. I could do but would rather not. I only really have enough time to put into one type of car and that's 67's. I would probably end up missing 65's or 69's in all honesty.

I thought it was time for a little bit of an update.

So far we have a tie on the poll for 1967 all the way of a mixture of the 3 classes. If anyone who is interested in competing and hasn't voted yet, get voting!

I have obtained another PC for hosting races. It will still be running from my home connection on my home network, but it keeps it separate from hosting on my own machine which I also drive on. It also means that we can have a dedicated server running more often to meet up and practice on such as at weekends and some evenings.

The website development is coming along well. I'm making the most of the free time I have whilst on holiday! Gone are the days of just a stactic page. These are some of the features which the website will have at launch:
  • Driver login where drivers can create and amend profiles
  • Administration to be carried direct to the site via admin login (results upload, posting news items etc.)
  • Interactive gallery where drivers can upload their own screenshots.

There are other things of course, but those are the main three I would like to have at launch. I'm always open to suggestions of what people would like to see on the site so let me know. If they are good ideas and are feasable I'll be happy to include them.

I might be able to enter a couple of races this season if I have the time and you don't mind being taken out 20 times per race when lapping me. However, I will need some basic instructions for simple people as to how to set up online racing etc. In the poll, I voted 67 because I'm used to those cars and will be even more of a mobile chicane if I try racing anything else

No problem Joe, all are welcome.

They'll be some server testing before the season starts so there will be some fun races and the server will hopefully be up at weekends for practice.

As for instructions for setting up online races, I'll get something posted on how to set it all up.

UPDATE:

Since I've got back from holiday, things have been a little crazy around here so I haven't been able to get as much done as I would have liked. However we have another bank holiday this weekend which this time I don't have to go anywhere! I'm planning to use the time to make some good progress.

Well, I drove about 6 laps of GPL yesterday. I think that's the first time for well over a year. And it showed - seriously. I had to make a few adjustments like dropping my favourite OpenGL as I've dumped my recalcitrant nVidia in favour of a much more stable ATI card. Runs very sweet, I have to say. The game that is - not my driving. I can also use Pribluda now which is great. If I say I was struggling to get under 1:30 in a Ferrari at Monza, you'll realise just how bad its become - I just don't seem to be able to brake properly any more.....

I can't guarantee being around too much, life has become too hectic, but it would be nice to participate a few times. I'm only really interested in 67s though.

Excellent. I've been just starting up with GPL again as well, and since I'm off for the summer, I'll be able to make some races. If we're using other carsets than the 1967 one, someone's going to have to show me how to install them.

I started getting back into GPL in the last month, and my ranks are looking a bit more respectable, ie. going from -14 to -26, and getting a -ve Monster.

Depending on how the schedule works out, NASCAR leagues permitting, and not to forget exams and various other bits n bobs, I may do a few races.

BTW Pirenzo, I'm racing against Mark Harrison in my NASCAR league nowadays! What goes around comes around eh!
