im loving the park idea, i hope tristan doesnt get injured
yea theres a park right near the track, maybe i can try to remember where it is. theres also a park in abbington, which is quite a trek, but its quality, its got swings and slides and a wooden train and everything!!!
i doubt many people would be able to find abbington park, due to northamptons crap traffic arrangements, so maybe we could meet at GP and drive in a convoy/race to the park.
EDIT : Idea, i can draw or find a map for everyone to have, taking GP karting as the starting point, then everyone will know how to get to the park. im sure anyone on the train could hitch a lift or get a taxi there.
Theres a pub right near the park called 'The Abbington' which is a big pub and maybe we can all grab a bite to eat.
theres also a lovely spoons called 'The Moon on the Square' in the town centre, litterally 2 mins walk from the Ibis Hotel, maybe we could buy a few beverages from there after the race.
hey guys, please dont ignore this post. im serious lol
would u rather have 1 big trophy to share between team mates and receive the standard trophies from GP, or would u rather have 2 smaller trophies and the standard prizes from GP? This is the winners trophy btw.
the big one looks very nice, but the smaller ones can be kept by both people as a little memento (but dont look quite so good)
Seriously, if we DO have a kickabout, or some other park activity, then it's probably best if we ALL agree to go easy on the drivers a bit, because injuring them (or me) would mean a massively wasted day for that person.
Just a thought. I'm crap at football (and I mean REALLY crap), so injuring me will provide no extra scoring opportunities :P
a few weeks ago i made the track we are visiting on autocorss editor. The track is a bit too narrow...
here it is
also, i was looking through the karting photos today and i notice that me and tristan have been 'infected' by LFS somehow? I was told that these names were following us for the whole event. Its a mystery!
Ah thanks for the track Will, will give the MRT5 a go around there later, get a feel for it.
Edit: Ah bloody hell, those turns are tight! I tried the LX4 first and had to make three point turns. Even in the MRT5 I had to put the steering lock up from normal. Now a question - what way am I supposed to go, blue or green? (see attached image)
The chicaney bit on the straight is further away from T1. I know, cos I hit it, and it was a big long slide before I made contact.
T2 (the long sweeper) is a longer corner I think. You could get the karts really sideways scrubbing off speed for the apex of 3.
The whole track should be a touch wider, based on the MRT's extra dimensions over a kart.
Not a BAD effort, but not quite accurate enough.
Having said that, as a tool to learn the track I guess it's okay. I haven't actually driven it yet (at the time of writing), so I have no idea how quick I'll be. I've only looked at it in Shift-U mode. When I drive it, I'll report back...
