Clio Cup

I'll be hosting a Clio Cup night if enough people are interested.

It will be a single build car with basic tuning adjustments allowed.

The build only allows the following to be tuned:

Tyre pressures
Final Drive
Aero
Braking
Differential

No tuning of the Springs, Dampers, Anti-Roll Bars or Ride height is allowed.

Hopefully this will make the racing more about driver skill than tuning ability.

The Car will be the Renault Clio 197

The Build will be as follows:



The final car should be as follows

StatValue
PIA505
Power197hp
Torque158lb-ft
Weight2,332lbs
Front58%
Disp2.0l

There will be three tracks used are

Infineon IRL
Road Atlanta Club
Suzuka East

Each race will last approx 15 minutes and will have a random grid with no pit stops.

DAMAGE IS ON


The lobby settings will be as follows:

Qualifying - 5 laps



Race 1 -
15 minutes - no mandatory pits



Race 2
15 minutes - no mandatory pits



Week 1 9pm (Sunday 6th May 2012) - Infineon IRL
Week 2 9pm (Sunday 13th May 2012) - Road Atlanta Club
Week 3 9pm (Sunday 20th May 2012) - Suzuka East

It's probably a given, but is the start time 2100 on those days?

Yes it is. I'd forgotten about that!

No worries. It's only a casual race series. Turn up when you can.

There's likely to be more Clios in the future.

Nope. The build is fixed :P

Otherwise I'd end up making it a full race set-up.

In the next series maybe.

The idea is to have a mini series where not much time is required to learn/tune the car. Everyone's in the same boat.

If this goes well then I'll organise a full series with a semi-fixed build and open tuning.

I'm having fun with this car in practise, feels more like a rally car

I'm getting 1:45-46 at the moment, but I'm happy with that. Still using full aero so possible to get some more time with less.

So far using only 4 gears as I just can't seem to find a good final gear that allows me 5-6 without having to up shift mid corner. Bit of a pain if I'm using my h shifter.

The Clio has a nice flat power curve anyway. So it doesn't really matter how many gears you run. Glad you're enjoying it.

Can you take me off the list as it looks like I can't make them, the first one and third one I am racing with another forum. Then the second one I signed up for a championship on Forza.net
