Published video of the upcoming tire temperature and wear model in action
Today I have published a video featuring the upcoming tire temperature and wear model, you can watch it here. At the beginning you can see my car set up and controller settings, if you are curious.
The goal was the verification of the distance to wear down 2 tires completely, and to observe the progression of handling, temperature, wear and laptimes. My goal was to have these tires to last around 200-250km, it was a point landing with a covered distance of 199km (55 laps and a few hundred meters).
The best lap was lap 24 with a laptime of 1:12:37, in pro mode, as a little challenge you can post videos of your best pro mode lap there;-)Enjoy, Bernhard

Championship 2016 results
The TORCS Endurance World Championship 2016 is done, the winner is this time the USRobotics Team owned by Andrew Sumner. Its his second championship win in a row, last year he won with a different team. Congratulations. And again Andrew took a championship virgin car to the crown, he is the first to win a championship with a car2-trb1 car.
I congratulate all other competitors too, thank you for taking part and pushing the limits, including the limits of the simulation. Especially to mention here is Wolf-Dieter, one of his teams, the wdbee racing Team, passed this season the mark of 100 official races.
Andrew published very cool race reviews, don't miss these:
We are looking for additional competitors, if you would like to take part don't hesitate to contact us, e.g. on the championship forum. You can start from the entries of the past season, you can download them from the 2016 championship page (bottom of the page). Hope to see you next season on the track, good luck on your way to the Hall of Fame.

TORCS version 1.3.7 "documented" released
TORCS version 1.3.7 "documented" is available for download. First I would like to thank the contributors which helped with patches, bug reports and feedback, especially Wolf-Dieter Beelitz for our lengthy suspension discussion.
The most important changes in version 1.3.7 are the much improved api documentation (available as separate tarball), improved handling of configuration files, improvements in the racing rules, blacklisting of input device buttons, improvements in the suspension code and as usual bugfixes and code cleanups.
Changes since 1.3.6

Championship 2015 results
I wish you all and your families a happy new year.
The TORCS Endurance World Championship 2015 is done, the winner is this time the Hymie Tech Team owned by Andrew Sumner, good to have you back, Andrew. This is his second title after 2007, congratulations. Especially remarkable is the fact that he is the first to win a championship with a car4-trb1 car. Another premiere was the first race ever on the reworked dirt-2 track. A certain track section got a name from Andrew, the "Meat Grinder", could not be better;-)
There is another record to mention, my Berniw Racing Team passed this season the mark of 100 official races and covered almost 100000 km racing distance. What a ride, started back in 2004!
I would like to share a quote from Andrews review of race 2: "This was an enthralling and fascinating race to watch, as good as any real-life event and one of the best TRB races I can ever remember.". Andrew published very cool race reviews, don't miss these:
