ADC Silverstone Offline training files

Details

A smaller zip file with:
silvertraining.mp3 => My voice over
DefaultBased.ea1 => The eagle setup used which should be copied to the GPL players\player name\setups\silver folder
Silvertraining.rpy => The GPL replay file which should be copied to the GPL replay folder
Silver.chm => Track guide

A bigger zip file with:
silvertraining.wav => My voice over
DefaultBased.ea1 => The eagle setup used which should be copied to the GPL players\player name\setups\silver folder
Silvertraining.rpy => The GPL replay file which should be copied to the GPL replay folder

1. Download the file and extract it somewhere.
2. copy the DefaultBased.ea1 file to the player silverstone setup folder in GPL

You could have changed the camber settings Bernd. I use asymmetrical camber settings because I like to see even tire temps. It hardly effects lap times though, so anybody using any of my setups can even up the camber settings. It will make the braking a little easier

Bump. (Important stuff)

Guys, seriously; this thing that Bernd put together is really nice. It's a .wav file with his commentary, and he has a way (verbally) of synchronizing it with the replay. It's really very, very good.

He'll post it sometime soon - I think he's still tweaking, plus we're exploring hosting options for the file.

Yeah, thanks too from me Bernd for all your hard work. :clap:

I'm really looking forward to seeing the first lesson and to the first Training Division session. I'm still hard at work at Silverstone attempting to destroy all seven of my Momo Racing 65 car PBs - 4 down, 3 to go. I'll make sure I get back into the 67s in good time. Will be interesting to see what effect all this trail braking practice will have on my 67 times...

John.

I'm having no luck downloading it. I choose free, pick a server, hit the download button, and it takes me to a screen that looks like it wants me to upload someting.

Pete, there´s a clock ticking down in the middle...This has to be down to zero, and after that the screen will change...You´ll see a combination of Numbers and Letters you have to fill in the box, and off you go...Hope this helps...

Bernd, fantastic stuff, amazing how calm your voice is while driving at the limit :D ...You must have a level of fitness like Schumi  :P

Seriously, anybody new to GPL should get this asap, and even experienced drivers can learn from it...
Only problem I´ve got now is this mantra I have in my head telling me to release or apply throttle  :blink:  

Well done, Bernd...Thanks a lot :clap:  :beerchug:  :thumbup:

Very nice Bernd. You always wonder what people sound like, and you're just like I thought. Kind of like Arnold.. :D

Were you actually talking while you drove, or did you dub it in? For a first lesson, I think it was great. It shows how you can do good times with a smooth driving style and proper lines. Most new drivers don't use all the track. Smooth throttle, braking, and proper lines will get you much faster times than you think. Hopefully newer drivers will see that you don't need to be sliding all over the track sawing at the wheel.

in later lessons you can go on to explain your footwork better. Meaning the use of throttle and braking together. Smooth shifting should be touched on too.

I'm impressed Bernd. Great job.. :beerchug:

I needed 4 hours to make the 8 minutes commentary as I didn't wanted to use wavelab or any sound editing tool. And like in my time as musician I took the one which was the best I could do :D

As for this lesson. A good title would be Silverstone and how to learn to brake without loosing control

There will be more like braking into turns or downhill/uphill difference in the next lessons.

And we will have a life session for silverstone on the 22th of april.

Ask everything even if it may seem to sound stupid

Thanks, Bernd.  Just downloaded and took a look at the help file you wrote, and it looks like it will be quite useful.

I appreciate you talking about specific braking points at each corner.  That's some I need to get much more disciplined with -- most times it seems I just pick any ol' random spot to hit the brakes as I'm barreling up to a corner.  No wonder I can't keep consistent times lap after lap!!

Can't wait to check out the replay when I get home tonight.

Thanks again.

Great job Bernd. I think this and any future lessons should be added to ADC website. That way it'll always be easy to find it for anyone.

I have massive trouble with Rapidshare, due to my ISP being silly with their IP addresses.  The site always thinks I've downloaded too much and it won't let me download.

Could somebody possibly email me the mp3 file?  I am happy to host it on my website and post the link here for anybody else having difficult with Rapidshare.

Bernd

I have just finished watching the Driving School clip......that is extremely well done mon ami , congratulations  :D  I reckon a lot of us will benefit greatly from this school.

What I would like to bring to the attention of those viewing the lessons is this:-

Please make and take note of just how SMOOTH Bernd is driving, irrespective of whatever speed he is doing.....yes, he uses all the track  but he NOT zigagging all over the ship.....nice clean lines...smooth throttle and brake applications...and only as much steering as is required at the time.

Watching from any camera angle shows a car being driven extremely well, very smoothly  and very fast.   Any driver following Bernd would know exactly what to expect in the straights AND in the corners.....and if you are good enpough driver yourself it would be clear as to when any passing manouvres could be made with success and without undue drama.

Again Bernd...VERY WELL DONE   :thumbup:

You have a dedicated pupil here that`s for sure  :bowdown:
