Race 3 - Hockenheimring National

Post  OneFastRedneck on Wed Nov 16, 2011 6:08 pm

Welcome to Hockenheimring National



One of Germany’s premiere racing venues and alternating host to the German Grand Prix, this historic track is located in the scenic Rhine valley in southwestern Germany. As there is virtually no elevation change throughout the flat track, drivers must contend with five long, high-speed straights and several sections with very tight corners.

Very high speeds can be reached on the Parabolika before braking into the famed 1st gear hairpin ("spitzkehre" in German), one of the most exciting passing spots on any circuit.

A few turns later, drivers reach the modern and graceful Mercedes grandstands, which loom above a technical, sharp left-hander roughly halfway around the course—another good place for overtaking rivals. Rounding the final Elfkurve and Sudkurve turns through the immense grandstands, nearly every seat has a view of the final straight and the finish line.

Today we will be racing on the shorter Hockenheimring National Circuit.

I scored tickets to the Alabama vs Georgia Southern game tommorrow in Tuscaloosa. Game starts at 2 pm est, and should end around 6:00. 2 hours drive from Tuscaloosa back home puts me home about an hour before race time. Should be a non issue, but you never know! Roll Tide!

Really fun race. I don't think I have ever raced that aggresive. Great battle with everyone, especially my teammate Mopar. A lot of bumping and banging, and a lot of trash talk. Cool

Thanks Mike. Really frustrating, first time using cockpit view, and the first time the game has ever locked up on me in the middle of a race. Can't figure if the two are related, but I have never had either of those things in the past. I was having a great time up until that point.

I've been using only cockpit view since FM4 came out.

That was a fun race. After getting around some folks, I had a big stretch in front of me and gradually reeled in Roca. We then proceeded to battle lap after lap as I tried to pressure him and get around. He eventually pitted but a few laps later after my pit I was still behind so we picked up where we left off. Unfortunately all our jousting gave Axe the opportunity to reel us in and pass. We then chased AXE for the last few laps (somewhere in there I managed several 34's including a 34.1 which was nice). I made an exit error in the last lap and lost contact but Rocca nearly got Axe at the line. All in all it was an excellent challenge.

Congrats to r1ngm4ster and Trooper on their victories this week. Congrats to Axe as well after recovering from a spin out to snag 4th place. Way to stay after it Axe. I'm loving the bigger lobbies too boys.... Makes for exciting racing for all involved. Looking forward to Road Atlanta. One of my favorite tracks. Wishing you and all of your families a happy Thanksgiving.

I had a fun race. I literally was pitted into the pit, lol. Despite early practice runs, the car did not seem to run well in the actual race. Thought I was starting to turn decent laps when i caught up to Gashi then he lagged out right in front of me, lol. It was like dangling a box of candy in front of a fat kid only for the fat kid to realize the box is empty, lol. I had a good run with Rik Dogski for most of the race till about lap 20 and went too wide and gave him the position. Spent the last 5 laps trying to get it back but just could not find the speed.

The car was a little unpredictable on some laps. I'd have some really good laps and be in the 32-33s range only to have the car sliding all over the place on the following lap. I even saw Bullet and Mopar lose it a couple of times and spin out. There was a big difference between running clean laps and being in the groove vs running laps battling for position.

Posted some pics on the photo page.

Sorry for any issue I caused after my wheel went all wacky. For some reason it kept turning to the left, and giving no response in short bursts.

Then finally it turned to the left, gave me a loud beep in my headsets, and stopped working compeletly. Odd thing is, the car stopped on a dime in the middle of the track. It didnt keep going, just stopped. Never seen that before. Someone shouted in chat to "Tell people when you stopped in the middle of the track" and I appologize because my mic is hooked up to my wheel, and I couldnt say anything.

Again sorry for any issues.

My wheel has "died" in every race in this series and I'm starting to suspect that it's an XBL issue. I can and have practiced online in lobbies and ran literally 100/200 laps in a week with no issues. But as soon as it's race night.... BAM!! Evil or Very Mad Our practice lobbies tend to run two to six people and we usually run five to seven lap races. My wheel only "died" a few times in forza 3 so I'm at odds right now. I've looked online to see if anyone else is having these issues but have found nothing. I'll be ordering the new CSR wheel in the next week or two to eliminate the possibility of a faulty Fanatec wheel. We shall see.

Hey Strum, just so you are not surprised the CSR wheel is subject to the same wheel glitch. I was racing with AAR GtDon last week and he has one, it shut down on him in the middle of the race. Sad

Thanks Midnite.... good info. I've gotten feedback that it may be wireless interference as well. IE... cell phones, ipods, and remotes and what not. But it NEVER "dies" when I'm practicing or running career mode. Only on race night. GRRRR!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
