What I would like to see is the same attempt, but with last year's 919 Hybrid as per the regulations at the time.
I wonder what that difference would be and also what kind of time it would produce. It's a bit like, bring out the
917/30, dial the boost to close to max and see what time that results in.
And here I was kinda thinking that Toyota might have a realistic change at taking the laurels home this year
The Rebellions sure are strong considering they ran in a class of their own last year. Also worth noting that
some of the LMP2s are running laptimes in the slower LMP1 bracket - just ~10 seconds shy of the fastest
The predicted weather is giving me a slight fit though. Of the 7 or so years I've been there since 2009, this
year looks a tad wet and coldish (at this time anyway). I'm hoping for another scorcher as I want to do some
sightseeing along the way. Maybe drop by the oldtimer GP at the Nurburgring the same weekend (kinda on
the way - a friend is among the organizers) and maybe stop by either Rouen or Reims. Reims would be en
route if I'm going via the 'ring....
That's the good stuff. I have recorded last year's Goodwood festival and that was poo. It was just cars doing
demo runs along the circuit while I was hoping for these race type things. Man was I disappointed after 3 days
of recording to have mostly boring stuff on disk. I deleted everything. Now I'll try this, currently racing 30's Alfas
and Bugattis and whatnot.
Thank you for the note and the link! Currently the 250 "Breadvan" is chasing an E-Type brilliant to see these
cars actually being driven as intended.
Of all the programming languages I have learned (and forgotten) assembler ranks #1 in terms of potential
speed but also #1 in terms of difficulty, especially for logic. So absolute kudos to you, Lee, for doing the
patches in assembler.
Back in the day when I was still involved in the (computer) demo scene on PC (mid to late 1990s) we used
to do the logic with C or some other high level language and the actual pixel output via assembler inserts
within routines... Mode 13h, ah memories from a long distant part of my um youth I suppose
