The 1994 Auriga platform was adapted into a surprisingly competitive touring car for 1994 - although the engine maintained its humble SOHC roots, the unmistakable 4-cylinder Kimura shriek could be heard from far and wide out on the track. The iconic blue, white, and grey triangular livery was sponsored primarily by Fujisaki, SCH, and Clockwise wheels. The driver, Luka Kuelsonne, was a fresh young face to the sport and hoped to prove himself in the cutthroat racing field.
Final Deadline in 23 hours
The deadline is approaching! I’m happy that I got a few more race cars by now! I am still missing:
I have not yet received:
This is your last chance
Deadline has passed
The submission deadline has passed and it seems like I got a car from all or almost all participants. Good work there in the end! Now it’s time to check the cars for any violations of the rules, balance checks and preparing the race streams.
The first cars have arrived in Thruxton already and are doing the installation laps. I’ll keep you updated!
Got worried that I couldn’t see my car…then noticed 3 cars labelled “00”.
Not complaining but could you have a watermark, or disclaimer, saying “Stock photo”.
I think those are cars that did not register a number, which you could do in the main post.
I see our number 11 on track, on the fastest straight of the track, I finetuned the transmission with that in mind.
The technical check has been completed!
- Good news: many cars are built according to the rules
- Bad news: a few cars aren’t
Dodos Daimond Racing - @Deska - Reason: VVT
Brantan Roundhead 2000 Super Touring - @Fletchyboy100 - Reason: Aero Quality
Armor Valencia Touring Car - @GassTiresandOil - Reason: Aero Quality
Baltazar Andromeda BRC - @Leonardo9613 - Reason: VVT
FM Horizon Race - @Jaimz - Reason: Rev Limiter
Hirochi Exatima TC1 - @nicholasrams774 - Reason: Weight
Iramitsu Koi Shōri VSR - @ZoomZoomer32 - Reason: Engine Capacity
I am a bit sad, but I have to disqualify these cars. Please double-check your entry for the next BRC to avoid this.
Another note about Engine Cooling
I failed to communicate the effects of the Engine Cooling slider and have received a few entries with settings < 0.5. In order to avoid unwanted sudden engine disassembly (), I will set all affected sliders to 0.5. This will cost the cars 1-2 tenths of a second, but at least nobody gets hurt.
Well, that was a clusterfuck and a half!
That’s a shame. One tiny click back that would take 5 seconds would’ve been enough to get my car back in and in contention for the middle of the pack.
Yes, I know it hurts, but it’s the same in every forum challenge. It is not the host’s responsibility to fix the entries. I don’t want to guess how much time you spent on building your car, but doing a last check would only have taken 1-2 minutes for you - I think that’s not too much to ask for.
I am not keen on checking cars and disqualifying them. I would really like to just download the cars and trust that they are built according to the rules. It is a huge effort to run these challenges and I somewhat feel that the participants should show more respect for that by spending 2 minutes of their time to check their entries. I don’t want discuss necessary fixes with each participant (or almost 25%, as in this challenge) - the more time you spend on the quality check, the less work I have.
@Leonardo9613 - I’d like to say that “I feel your pain”…but you had illegal tech!
I got binned for 100rpm and 2kg which is 5 seconds on an engine reprogrammer and a bag of sugar!
