What's the purpose of driving an open cockpit car? I'd argue the cockpit is open because a roof adds weight high up and weight is something you dont need in a racecar.

Maybe purpose was the wrong word, more like tradition. Open wheels and cockpit are bad for aerodynamics but it's how F1 was and always has been. Covering up those parts make it less F1 in my opinion. Same for Indy.

I know it's not gonna happen but I would love see the halo and aeroscreen disappear sooner rather than later.
Totally defeats the purpose of driving with an open cockpit. They might as well just put a roof on all the cars already.

Erik.. not sure if it was a patch to correct or just an update.

Thanks, I did not have that update installed.

But neither did Robert as I understood correctly, so I'm not sure wether that has something to do with the freezes. I also had the 1.0 version installed without anything else, so I guess it's just bad luck whenever it happens.

Anyway thanks for racing all! I was having a great time untill the final lap of the race. The Cooper wasn't very competitive but it also was really easy to drive near the limit, which made the race enjoyable despite the lack of some fights.

Freeze on the second to last lap, what a huge dissapointment!!! :arge:

I was doing well in 5th place and had very conservative gearing to not put too much stress on the engine. Just drove at a steady pace to make sure I would score points for Pist'n Broke in the Cooper.
Can't believe bad luck struck again.

That being said, my very first race with GPLRACER was also on this track (with the Thundercars) and that also ended with a freeze. Maybe worth taking a closer look at it for future calenders?

@Bo, you mentoined a patch in the chat? Could you link to that patch because I can't find anything.
