In Topic: Targa Participant Lineup

Yesterday, 10:34 AM

Not much to say about my effort here. I've done better laps in the past.

On the first lap I had two spins, one of which left me stuck, so I had to use a reset. Then I blew my engine for my second reset. I tried a second lap but after some errors, I gave up.

As grim as that sounds, I really enjoy Targa and constantly marvel at the effort that the track makers put into it. Someday I'll hopefully learn most of it before Alzheimer's set in.

just know, NO STOPPING IN PITS at completion of 1st lap, unless you are finished running.

I don't understand the reasoning of this, although it's pretty inconsequential.

It seems to me that the way to run this is, you put in enough fuel for the laps you want to do, do one lap trying to not have any major crashes, then do another with a bit more wild abandon to see if you can improve it - or not.

Since you are allowing 3 resets, refueling can be done anywhere on the track. Now, if we were running Pro Damage (which would be very difficult here), the only way to run another lap if you had major damage or got stuck off the road, would be to quit and come back in the pits.

So the only question that remains is why did the server assign numbers 25 and 91 for Saturday's race?

As for the missing mips, I'll create them and offer them to the community.


Wow, great researching Michael. I know very little (nothing) about number assigning, but I'd bet that the mod creators will be happy that you found this bug and that you can offer a fix. Maybe someone there can shed some light on the extra number assigning.

Same here - No numbers on those cars.

I searched for an update that would be related to online numbers, but couldn't see anything. Reinstalling the mod also didn't change anything. I guess it must be an oversight. You might post your files in the CA66 mod forum at

Zowie! I forgot that the race was Pro Damage mode. I would have been more careful otherwise.

Yes, the start was a disaster but Michael and I were very lucky. I also cashed in on Yannick spinning, then crashing as well as Michael having engine or low fuel trouble to come home in 1st place.

We need more of these season-break races to re-appreciate the dangers out on the track.
