Online Aussie V8, GPL and Nascar players wanted

Gday All

My friend has put up his site for his new online racing league

www.superooracing.com

Basically it is structured online racing, using Nascar 2003 with patches for Bathurst, Phillip Island etc installed, Grand Prix Legends with tracks patches as well as the Australian V8 Supercar physics for the AV8S series.

Races are run every 4 weeks or so, and are true racing conditions. ie. 2 hours in most cases. Bathrust ran for 6hrs 41mins on similar racing league a few weeks ago.

You will require a steering wheel, a few gig of HD space (dosnt need to be more than a 1.5ghz processor) and all patches files etc are available from the website.

You will need patience, and to read the Nascar manuals to learn how to set a car up for a track. Please note, these are SIMULATORS, not arcade games, so you will learn about bounce, rebound, camber, sway bars, aeros, fuel loads, tyre management, and in the case of GPL how many clutches to use, angle of drive, driveline ratios etc etc etc. Setups for each track will take a bit of work, and you will need plenty of practice time to learn the tracks, and get your times down.

You will also require a broadband internet connection, as said a bit of time, and some dedication.

However what you will get from it is a excellent real model experience, with great gaming against great people. These simulators offer a sensational feel, and the competition is red hot. Great stuff if you genuinely enjoy driving!

LANS are held near Dandenong Vic for practice/beer/fun and racing will be conducted via a Linux server utilising Nascars multiplayer modules.

So check out the site, sign up, have a look around, and if your game, join the league!

Cheers

Bump
OK can see a few of you have joined up (G'day Fordy) and a few hardcore enthusiasts from older racing leagues have boosted the numbers to around 10 members.
The maximum racing grid is around 16, so anyone who likes racing simulators and wants a genuine Aussie V8 physics and car model patch for use within Nascar, get to the website, and start practicing!
The racing season will commence early next year, so start practicing, and if you can attend the familiarisation LAN bbq later in the year tis all good.

Also just released are the patches for Sandown, new car physics, and some excellent links.

See you on the track!

Re: Online Aussie V8, GPL and Nascar players wanted

Cool XWGT. I forgot about this thread. I play a lot of GPL, Nascar Racing (Big Sim Racing fanatic also playing Netkar a lot at the moment). However recently I have been very busy and havent had much time for Sim Racing.

I will check the website out and probably sign up sometime on the weekend. Time to get my lap times back down and fire up my ADSL connection :s6:

Good man
I havnt even started practicing PI or Sandown yet and the boys have already ripped 14 seconds off their lap times. Might require some serious tweaking lol

Re: Online Aussie V8, GPL and Nascar players wanted

hehe sounds like it will be quite a challenge. Can't wait :)

Just signed up btw. Hopefully Friday I will be able to turn some laps. Been a few months since I last played Nascar 2003 so I might be a bit rusty. :)

Re: Online Aussie V8, GPL and Nascar players wanted

I don't have broadband yet, but I will be in once I get it all connected. I haven't played NR2003 for a while either. I have signed up as well.

Has the physics for N2003 been cracked?

And just a note to everyone else, you need to rgister to download the patches.

Gday Aaron
Papyrus actually stopped developing Nascar, and basically gave the code away
Since then its been open slather
My mate who owns the website and the racing league actually wrote the aussie v8 physics, and car designs for it just for our close friends, and some american leagues.
On top of that, enthusiasts all over the world have converted tracks like bathurst, sandown, phillip island with correct physics for Aussie V8s, so the options are now endless

Oh and Jas says go to the sections area (left hand tool bar), and check out the HOW TO INSTALL area to install Nascar with the Trans-Am physics pack as well

Cheers

Re: Online Aussie V8, GPL and Nascar players wanted

Mate I'd love to go racing, but unfortunately my race engineer headed of to 888 and whilst I can drive, I cannot set up a race car for $hit.

Web site looks great. I'll grab the bits n pieces, have a practice and will get involved soon.
