Mark Barresi won Borovaya Minsk “Semi-Reversed Grid race” race of Festival Events | Dec 18, 2014

This track is instant fun. Our last race in 2014. Don't miss it :)

Track Type : Public road course
Track Lenght : 4.03 kms. - 2.504 mil.
Track Num. Turns : 9
Track Period : 1966-1979
SEMI-REVERSED GRID – If we would have a constant number of drivers it could be a simple reversed grid, but nowadays we see only 6-9 cars on the grid. So to avoid the problem of 12-14 empty slots on the top of the grid we use this semi-reversed method.
Grid position swappings for Semi-Reversed Grid Events:
1 -> 4, 2 -> 3, 3 -> 2, 4 -> 1
5 -> 8, 6 -> 7, 7 -> 6, 8 -> 5
9 -> 12, 10 -> 11, 11 -> 10, 12 -> 9
13 -> 16, 14 -> 15, 15 -> 14, 16 -> 13
17 -> 20, 18 -> 19, 19 -> 18, 20 -> 17
This works automatically, you don't have to leave and rejoin the server in specific order.
I will drive my Adelaide hotlap car - Brabham BT19.
i will drive a 2L, not sure which but maybe Lotus to add a different name to the field as it stands right now ;)
This track causes FPS drops here, especially at 60FPS. Made a light version of this track but still got them somehow...
We'll see what happens...
Please have Cognac Airfield installed. I plan to host a short test after Borovaya.

Robert, I can't recall if we had any problems with Borovaya.
Might have been my videocard, but since I lost my previous drivers (which were best for GPL, but not other games), I have lost some performance somehow...we'll see, and I'll try to finish ;)
Will install Cognac, and maybe some Vodka as well. :P
I don't get any issues but I don't have the fps counter running to tell you what rates I get.
Don't have probs offline at all, but online I had severe drops at the points where the track converges with many other cars on track...especially at T1 and T5 ;)
Update: also offline, with my light version, no matter what resolution or graphic detail (!), the FPS drops especially towards T5/6, and at the straight at the same point where it converges with T5/6, to about 45FPS...I'm afraid online it will be way worse...
Anyway have overclocked the videocard once gain, and optimized my memory timings, which seems to help slightly...
Looks like my trusty Brabham BT11 2.5 should match up well with the current cars :)
Some of us, like Roo and me can only join through 60fps v1...hopefully restart...we had the same probs at Montjuich...
I couldn't join either.. maybe the Barresis too? I did see Tris on server for a bit in practice though :)
Three mistakes for me in this race, two of which caused by a little frame drop at T1 and T3.
I like this track, simple but hard to interpret, with many chance for each class of cars.
Good finish of the season for Barresi's family, that are not sure to be both here next year.
About patch, we ever use v2 except with GT, as in Jani recommendations.
Happy new year at all Groundhog friends.
Pedro van den Berg
Sorry to hear you could not join Robert and Iestyn :(
Great fun race and track!
To many mistakes but surprised the most get well.
Thanks for taking the slower cars, made it all more fun.
Nope Alex, 66s needs to be v1 for everyone to join...known issue...
Sorry again guys. I just was not aware of this problem.
It was an eventful race for me. A bit of chaos in lap 1, but suddenly I felt I had a chance for victory. Somehow I could match Mark's pace. Unfortunately I blew the engine in lap 5... Later I had another reset but it was still good fun. This track is fantastic, and T1 is a real challenge each lap :)
Congrats Mark! Faultless drive. Thanks all for coming.
Robert, can you explain how i and Mark run yesterday, then ?
We used 60fpsv2newmod.
This is a strange one. A list here on SRMZ [url]http://srmz.net/index.php?showtopic=9967&hl=+stratos%20+60fps#entry100117[/url] (see the list in post #4) gives which version of the patch 'works' for each mod but for some it doesn't stand 100% correct.
My machine has an issue with 66mod. It will only run with 60 fps v1 patch. My 66's also don't like the 66mod v2 update.
Maybe it is the gpl v1.3 that it doesn't like. No idea why really but it is how it is :(
We experienced this 60 fps ver problem when we did the one lap quali at Monjuich with 66's not long back.
No, I can't explain why some can join with v2 and some can't...
All I know is there are quite a few drivers who can't join with v2 (GPL crashes or nothing happens choosing the green buttun right below) with 66 mod.
We had this issue at this year's 66 Montjuich event, as Roo stated. Jani restarted with v1 back then, and then everyone could join (everyone choosing v1 in GEM+)...that's why I said it's a known issue...
Jani forgot about it, so that's why he started with v2. No worries Jani, I was a bit bummed though...
I had tested well for this event, was looking forward to it, and looking at the times I think I could have given Mark a run for his money.
Anyway congrats Mark and podium, and have a nice Christmas and a healthy 2015! :)
