its been a while since i joined the awesomatix team, but i would like to be more active in this forum from now
First of all: My name is Oliver Franke i am 21 years old and i come from germany (~90km westside from hannover). I joined the Awesomatix team last december and i am really happy with that
As you might have heard last weekend was held the ETS Pilot race (a test race, to maybe host an ETS reace next season, with high quality drivers)
We´ve been racing the same reglement as we do at the ETS Races (Ride tires, MuchMore 13.5T Motor, 5,0 Gear ratio) Only diffrence is that we could use any speedo with 0-Boost Blinky mode.
Here´s a short report:
Beside the ADAC GT 1000 we had our ETS Pilotrace at the very famous Nürburgring Boulevard. It was only a two day event so we arrived at the track Saturday morning. The first practice was to get used to the track. But already in P2 we had good traction and could start working on our set up. But our car worked really really well right from the beginning. So we only had to do small changes. After re-seating from the fastest 3 consecutive laps I was leading and we had Max in P4. So we were very confident to get the best possible result for the qualification which was also on Saturday.
In Q1 I was leading but unfortunately hit a curb onto the straight which meant traction roll. In Q2 the car worked really well and I TQ´d that one by over 2.5 sec lead. Also in Q3 our car worked perfect again which meant I could take the second TQ run and snatch up the first position in the ranking list.
Unluckily my spur gear broke in Q4. I made some tiny changes which seemed to be very good. But anyway after qualification I was TQ and the Team had a really good set up to get the best possible results for the finals.
Unfortunatly Max had some really really bad luck with traffic and losts a lot of time which costs him the A-Main
In A1 I pulled away and won by a comfortable lead.
It was much closer in A2. But without making any mistake it was nearly impossible to overtake on that track. So I won A1+A2 and also the race already at that point
Before A3 we had a closer look to our car and thought about what we could improve. And we found something to get the car more rolling and also still easier to drive. So i simply put 0.5mm under the hubs all around the car.
So I wanted to try it. And it was amazing fast. Great improvement!
All in all for me it was a really good weekend. Big thanks to the team for the great support! And we are perfectly prepared for the ETS in early December this year
Looking forward to it!
I will attach the set up as soon as petitrc has uploaded it.
