I saw the first 8 laps and the last 5 so I didn't see how you got in front?
But I did see Calvin give the place back after a push on last lap:)yeah I was actually surprised at that because I feel like most people wouldn't give the place back after something like that. Our lap times were identical most of the race. Shame because I felt like my final lap of qualifying was good enough for pole too since I was up 3 tenths on my time going into the final sector when time expired and it didn't allow me to finish the lap like it should have done and what I expected it to do. I noticed there were some bizarre glitches going on during the race. The drivers behind us were having issues with glitches and then I had a random under steer bug at the top of the hill on lap 5 which cost me a full second. I think it was lap 18 when I saw him off track ahead of me, not sure how that happened but I was suddenly right on his bumper and eventually made the pass later on the lap right before the final corner since I had lower downforce I was faster in the straights but a little slower than him in the slower corners. It was a nail biter but I was able to hold him behind the final 5-6 laps.

Hello Linny, thanks for signing up!
Will add you to the list right away :)
We will be going without teams for the first Sunday season. Maybe its easier to form teams after the drivers got to know each other for a month :rolleyes:
And no, your english is fine, no worries :)

Good morning to all. I have a question: in your august championship, you have a special event in Nordschleife, correct? I saw in the “ Duration of the events” bulletin that the qualifying time is 15 minutes, thatīs right? But 15 minutes maybe is not enough to do a warm up lap and a flying lap. In that case, what happens?

There it will be 30 minutes of course :)
So the drivers should be able to do a max of 2 - 3 flying laps.
And 10 laps. So approximately 100 minutes for that event :rolleyes:

I predict now that I will not manage to put in a clean lap and will start at the back of the grid without registering a time haha :).

Is there any chance that we could start that week's race at 6:30pm UK time instead of 7pm? Monday 31st is a public holiday in the UK so hopefully some drivers will be free to start earlier (maybe people in other countries wouldn't though? Not sure) and the length of the race means I'm going to be dangerously close to running out of time to complete the race as I have plans that night.

Hmm... As it is a Special Event, why not make it on Sunday? :)

If there's enough people interested from September Sunday league. Why not run 2 lobbies with same amount of laps, screen shot finish then stitch all times together to have a possible 32 entry table. 10 laps round the Hell. It would be interesting to see how close you are to the nearest time in the other lobby?

Haha very good :).

Could you perhaps make it so that the Finnish flag cloud overlaps the snail (so that the cloud is the same size as the word 'Snails' and sits directly underneath the team name?).

It would help with me re-sizing it for the website because making it smaller as it is would mean the writing would be too small to read. Thanks ;)

EDIT: oh and without the background? Because we're going to run into the white background problem again :/

That overtake was 'robust' to say the least. Naughty boy :)

I'm sorry I ruined your race on Monaco Pink. :( First by not returning to pit fast enough during qualifying wrecking your lap and second by coming into the chicane too fast and thereby hitting you off forcing you to cut and getting a time penalty. :( If you feel I deserve loss of points or some other punishment I wouldn't disagree and would respect that. They weren't on purpose but I deserve it I think.

Other than my big mistakes it was good racing everyone, with some really good battles I had with Drushan and SuperBvB specifically. You both drove well and very fair. :)

2 awful races for me. Forgot to change my fuel from the 8 lap race we did at Monaco the other day. 2nd race, had a bad launch, was 2nd to last at the 1st corner then on lap 2, Sproket ran wide at the hairpin, I was already committed, we touched as he came back on unsettling my car to go off track and get a penalty. I lost focus and pretty much mentally gave up

Just watched a replay of the Monaco race (on fast forward - those Ginettas are so slow).

WOW! I'm definitely uploading a video of my battle with Leipzig as soon as possible - it was like Senna vs Mansell in 1992! (Apart from the overtake on the last corner like I said :(. I think maybe I deserve that position back but I'll leave it up to Pink :))

He actually told me that you made a mistake and there was a gap? l dont know, he just told me for no reason ;D
l bet you have the replay to show us, Chig :rolleyes: What happened?

Sproket kind of messed it up at the hairpin numerous times in the beginning laps :(
Also touched me, forced me to go a bit wide and then Pidgey pushed me into a cut track penalty. Not blaming him though, as l was coming from the outside. Would still like to hear his thoughts, also Sproket's.

I ran wide at rascasse & he definitely had the right to go for the overtake, but we ended up side-by-side going into the last corner (Leipzig on the inside) & I wasn't left any space to get round the corner - had knowhere to go but into the barrier!

In first race at Monaco I ruined my chances for podium on the 4th lap, don't know what happened there, hit the inside wall of the last corner :rolleyes: Anyway had some good battles throughout the race.
In second race I really enjoyed very close racing going on everywhere but then I thought these tyres will not last until the finish and went to pits. After pitting my speed was limited to 47 kph. What is this penalty, does it supposed to be like that? :confused: But it was very good racing until it lasted :)

No, I wasn't, only speed was limited. I thought my pedal isn't working but it worked fine until that speed and I could change the gears freely. Even the pit limiter speed was higher :(

Video and l'll decide :)
l think our rules say, that the one on the outside line should give in at some point.
And as it was at the very last corner of the last lap, l would say it was race accident in the heat of the moment :) We shouldnt blame each other.

That definitely was a glitch. :( That's happened to me a few times before upon exiting pit lane it barely accelerated and my top speed was extremely limited. A bad glitch that even returning to pit lane won't fix sometimes. :(

God dammit this game! -.-
Wiewiurka reported the same 47 kmh problem!

Seriously getting mad here right now. People are practicing 1 week to finally have fun with the group on Mondays and then this!
He had such a great speed and the game screws him over, OF COURSE!
To be honest, if this had happened to, l would've stopped doing this.
Its frustrating and underwhelming. Not healthy at all.

Sorry Linnuke for what happened to you and for ranting like this :(
Its good you had fun until this s*it happened...

Not blaming anybody - just reporting an incident like we're supposed to.

No ideal I know (I'll hopefully be able to upload the replay tomorrow if I get chance), but here are phone shots of the last corner.

Chig - orange & black
Leipzig - white & black

Still think I was 'squeezed' :p

Not sure what you expected him to do. But you are on the outside.
In the first shot it looks like you almost went into the barrier yourself.
Actually, l dont want to decide. Because either way, one is going to be pissed.
So please, discuss it among yourselves :)

Okay, no problem. But being 'well off the racing line' doesnt give you the right to just ram someone off :P
Not blaming you for what happened, just saying you are never allowed to ram people.

To me (and obviously I'm just going by these screenshots and this is just my opinion for what it's worth) it looks like you're both equally to blame for that wreck. Orange car probably should have at some point given that place up but at the same time the green car is giving orange nowhere to go although it looks like you wouldn't have made that corner anyway. but it's clear green car wasn't going to make it either. In fact the only way he did make the corner was to use you (or if orange wasn't there, it would have been the barrier).

In my eyes for whatever that's worth, it's a racing incident and you should both be given a slap on the wrist. :p

chig88
17-08-2015, 21:08
Not sure what you expected him to do.

Use the large amount of track to his right :/


In the first shot it looks like you almost went into the barrier yourself.

Yes, because I was trying to avoid cutting across him.


Actually, l dont want to decide. Because either way, one is going to be pissed.

I wouldn't be pissed at all. The difference between 2nd & 3rd is one point - hardly massive. The only reason I brought it up is because it says in post #1 (and in the rules I wrote) that we should report incidents if we feel someone was wrong. I won't bother again if it's a problem.

Firstly sorry for being late. Dinner.
Race 1 kept my fat ol Ginetta arse as big as poss. Went off and hid.
Race 2 braked too late into hair pin and took out Drushan waited and got in Pinks way then interferred with Robs race so sorry for that( but numerous is a slight exaggeration unless your combining practice with tonight Pink)?
I'll show ya tomorrow.

Monaco, everyone kinda has to brake in the same place.
But Rumpy Pumpy has different lines in many corners so has different braking points.
For me T1 I could brake much later. Into the hairpin most were applying the brakes before the neon marker where as I could after and as it was early in the race so I was unaware of other people's lines.
When I upload you will hear me back off early but I really don't expect much more than that I become accustomed to.

You say its hardly massive, yet you report it.
l think you should've accepted the 3rd place, you made a mistake after all. And if we continue reporting such things it will soon get awkward and there will be tensions between drivers. l dont want that.

l hit Leipzig very hard on the last lap at Ruapuna. l told him what happened and he accepted it.
Also, l pushed Drushan into a cut track penalty, waited for him and done it was.
Maybe next time you and Leipzig are in a similar situation, you will squeeze him and go for 2nd. l dont think he would complain.
It was very hard to overtake in Monaco and it was the last lap. l would've gone for the overtake as well, l guess.



il also be looking at monaco as i got spun around by someone

That was SuperBVB, l saw it :p



But Rumpy Pumpy has different lines in many corners so has different braking points.
For me T1 I could brake much later. Into the hairpin most were applying the brakes before the neon marker where as I could after and as it was early in the race so I was unaware of other people's lines.
When I upload you will hear me back off early but I really don't expect much more than that I become accustomed to.
:)

You already said that last week.
As the one behind, you have to adjust to the one in front and their braking points.
Being able to brake later is not an excuse for pushing someone off.

Now for my race summary. :) In Monaco I wasn't able to put together a good lap during qualifying unfortunately, I think I was just too nervous and it hurt my consistency so I made mistakes I normally wouldn't make. I also incidentally wrecked a lap of my teammate. :( Fortunately I at least ended up in a higher spot on the grid than I thought I would get based on my time. I got off to a decent start in the race but while I was trying to affix Pink's exact position beside me I used the brakes too late on the chicane upon exiting the tunnel, which gave her nowhere to go and the time penalty as mentioned before. :( Sorry again, I really should've waited for you. The rest of the race for me was a three way race between Pink Drushan and I, with us switching positions throughout. Pink would pass me a few times but each time she did she ended up spinning out somehow at that same chicane exiting the tunnel, and I would pass her. That chicane is tricky for sure. Ultimately finished 5th one spot behind Drushan. :) Despite my incident my overall consistency in Monaco was very good and improved from how I've raced previously. :)

In Ruapuna my qualifying lap was better but my spot on the grid wasn't. I got off to a decent start and due to some incidents ahead of me I made it all the way up to third position. Eventually after some battling Drushan and Sprocket passed me, and I also had a time penalty on the second to last corner which allowed more to pass me. The rest of the race was a battle with SuperBvb. :) It was a great battle and he raced fairly. :) Unfortunately I did bump him once on the hairpin and let him pass me again, sorry for that. Eventually I passed him and finished 6th. :)

Overall this was probably my best performance in the championship to date. All the practice really helped my consistency and pace . :) Thank you to everyone again for the two great races. :)

Well done to the winners tonight...for me race 1 didnt go well at all as i couldn't put a decent qualy lap in so starting from 7th was poor i was then spun around by superbvb as pink informed me and that ruined my race as i had to wait for everyone to pass me out.

2nd race was a bit better started 4th and was up to 2nd by the end of lap 1 and then passed leipzig_f into turn 1..we raced for 6laps pulling away from the rest until i made a mistake getting a 5sec penalty leipzig_f to be fair stayed behind but we lost all our time to pink...we then went 3wide into the last corner and unfortunately leipzig_f braked too late pushing me out into the gravel...mistakes on my behalf after that cost me at least a podium but 4th was all i got...finally big shout out to drushan_87 on getting the win for the 420petrolheads great racing

Ok I forgot to ask this earlier, but I just remembered. During qualifying at willow springs last Sunday I was 3 tenths up on my time going into the final sector when time expired and it didn't allow me to finish my flying lap. I felt like I was robbed of a potential pole. Does that always happen? I was under the impression you could finish your flying lap like in single player.

But then again it'd be really unfair with tracks like Le Mans and Nurburgring where each lap is over 5 mins long depending on what car you're using. I guess I watch too much F1 qualifying lol

Understeer? Hmm, I've had a lot of oversteer at first. Especially turning into corners, but also accelerating out of the corkscrew. Ended up adjusting tire pressure, tilted the brake balance more towards the front, and there was something else I did too but I don't remember off the top of my head but yeah now it's more balanced. If you got under steer, do the opposite I did I guess lol

That corkscrews a tough corner man. I have a great setup for an Aston Martin around that track though! You could try not worrying too much about the corkscrew and just make your car quicker through the rest of the track.

Just make it driveable through there and quicker elsewhere, it's a tough corner to set your car up for because it drops so suddenly and you're trying to get your car to brake, turn, change direction and then accelerate out most of which is done while the track is dropping so it unsettles the car.

Go Karts? lol just kidding. Lmp1&2, formula A, B, or C or any of the classic Lotus's. As far as tracks go, any of the F1 tracks, Monza, sunny silverstone, catalunya, SPA, hockenheim, Nurburgring, hell Imola used to be F1 too and I love that track so add that, and even throw in that Suzuka wanna-be Sakitto. Suzuka is one of the best technical tracks on the planet and it's not in this game...just wow. Anyways those are my wishes :)

So basically, anything thats in the game. ;)

I'd like to race on circuits that are not used as much and not on tv asmuch. So none of the f1 tracks, road america, or Watkins glen for instance.

Other than that, I don't care what car/tracks we race on so long as it's fun!

TEAM SLOWSKI (that's What I want the name of my team to be! Haha) FOR THE WIN!!

Ok Guys here it is in English and short list format (All credit to Sebstinator for the images)

First you want to navigate to Options > Controls > (R1) Configuration

Steering Deadzone (0)
Steering Sensitivity (50)
Throttle Deadzone (0)
Throttle Sensitity (50)
Brake Deadzone (0)
Brake Sensitity (35)
Clutch Deadzone (0)
Clutch Sensititvy (35)

Speed Snesitivity (0)

Damper Saturation (0)

Force Feedback (100)
RPM/Gear Display (No)

Controller Input Mode (3)
Advanced (On)
Sot Steering Dampening (On)
Visual Wheel Filtering (On)
Opposite Lock Help (Off)

Next you need to navigate to Options > Controls > (R2) Calibrate Force Feedback

Tire Force (115)
Per Wheel Movement (0)
Per Wheel Movement Squared (0)
Wheel Position Smoothing (0.04)

Deadzone Removal Range (0.30)
Deadzone Removal Falloff (0.01)

Linkage Scale (0.10)
Linkage Stiffness (1.00)
Linkage Damping (1.00)
Relative Adjust Gain (0.95)
Relative Adjust Bleed (0.15)
Relative Adjust Clamp (1.00)

Scoop Knee (0.60)
Scoop Reduction (0.15)

Soft Clipping Half Input (0)
Soft Clipping Full Output (0)

That’s all the settings you need for the wheel, the rest of the settings below are in car tuning setup. The best place to test your tuning is in Free Practice mode as you can edit the tune and quickly reset the session allowing you to tweak the tuning again. Use the below settings in tuning setup as a base line default but you will likely want to tweak them to suit your own driving style.

Launch Practice Session then select edit tuning then (r1) for force feedback page

Spindle

Master Scale (50)
FX Scale (100)
FY Scale (100)
FZ Scale (130)
Mz Scale (150)

Turn all the smoothing settings to (0)

Arm Angle to (1500)

Next you want to press (R2) to get to Body & SOP setup

Body Scale (2.00)
Body Longitudinal Scale (2.00)
Body Stiffness (100)
Body Dampening (100)

SOP Scale (20)
SOP Lateral Scale (50)
SOP Differential Scale (50)
SOP Dampening (0)

Personally I found this setup a bit heavy so I altered a few things, go and watch this video it has another setup and explains what some of the setting mean which will help you learn and tweak it yourself. I personally used a mix of settings for from Seb and the video to get the right feel for me.

Make sure you start the game from the PS menu with a DS4 controller. Then when PCars boots up and asks you to press X to start, hit the X on your wheel. That should register it with the game and then once you're in the main menu go to settings and your wheel should be there, just calibrate it.

After about 5 laps there's too much heat and deg. I think my right front is up to 1.7 bar. :(

What tyre pressures, camber angle etc are you running with?

I think the longest stint I've done on race fuel is about 6/7 laps, but I've done stints of about 10 laps on lower fuel. Haven't had any overheating problems in either run. Plenty of deg & I'll have to be careful in the last few laps, but the temps have been okay.

Having said that, the way this game seems to be it'll probably be completely different tonight. And at this point I'm completely guessing on fuel - the estimated laps it gives you in the setup is so far off it's not even funny. Ended up with about 20 litres left in the tank in the GT3 race on Friday, so I think I'm going to go back to calculating fuel for myself if I have the same problem tonight.

Sproket

Whoever that progressivism guy is - why the hell are you racing like a lunatic when you're being lapped? Nearly had both me and Linnuke off in the 2nd race :(.

Good racing guys (especially you Pink - that race at Brands Hatch was epic :)).

Pissed off with myself and the game for Laguna Seca. Myself for making so many stupid mistakes in the first half of the race, and the game for giving me a 10 second time penalty for absolutely no reason whatsoever.

Was comfortably ahead of Linnuke in 4th, went through the corkscrew as normal (without leaving the track) and just got a completely random 10 second penalty which gave him 4th place :mad:. Pushed like crazy to catch up & had an overtake attempt at the last corner but out-braked myself, he kept cool (good driving Linnuke) and cut back underneath me & took the flag.

1st race, I did ok without practice. Never driven the car and hate the track, was very inconsistent but 6th? was a good finish. Laguna, I had the pace to finish in the top 5 I think but had a bad start. Me and Linnuke got stuck together at turn 1 then got a cut track at the left hander before the corkscrew. Probably would have got 6th if not for a spin at the 2nd to last corner costing me at least 10 seconds

Just done a quick practice for next week. Heads up to everyone - I know the square root of f**k all about this track because I've not raced on it in a game since early PS3 days (and even then not very much), so if you're behind me then expect me to be braking in random places because I have no idea where I'm going :p.

Anyway - first time I managed was 7:32.0 - is that really slow? Think I'll forget about setup this week & just focus on learning the track!

Also, heads up to anyone planning to use the Ginetta G55:

Estimated Distance with Full Tank - 8.5 laps
Race Length - 10 laps

C'mon SuperBVB, why you push my outside rear wheel when I am turning into corner?:mad: We both went straight into a wall on Brands Hatch 1st lap. No big problems there, looked like a racing incident.

On Laguna Seca it was very interesting race. Everyone had trouble with that car so I was looking good for podium finish. But when the fuel burnt off and the rear of the car got lighter my troubles began too. And this new Progressivism guy needs introduction to the blue flag. And Pidgey , crazy pace, 1 sec faster than others :confused::eek:

Are you signing up or...? :confused:

What do you mean 'basic'? :p
The Sundays will just be as competitive as Mondays.



i noticed pink exiting the pit and i made a few mistakes but i really dont see why you was sticking to my bumper and gave me a little hit into turn 4 when i was after lapping her???

You said it yourself, you made a few mistakes, so it was only my right to pass you on fresh tires. And please dont start nitpicking. l bumped you, yes, but then l let a little gap between us.



That reminds me, I saw Pink pit and someone pitted lap 1? Forgot fuel? Can't be tyres, I had about 60% wear left

Yep, went to the pits after 13 laps only for the hell of it. Was very disappointed with my race until then and the front right tyre only made that feeling worse. So l went for new tires to try to set the fastest lap at least :)



Anyway - first time I managed was 7:32.0 - is that really slow? Think I'll forget about setup this week & just focus on learning the track!

P.S. - is the Bentley allowed or banned?

Yep, thats actually 40 seconds off the pace :rolleyes:
Its allowed.

Good racing everyone. :) Everything I saw was very fair and competitive, as is to be expected. Quality stuff. :)

In the first race I didn't get off to a good start and found myself in last place on the first lap. Eventually I was able to make it up to 9th place or so but fell back to 12th. I stayed there for most of the race until about 5 laps to go I passed Funkyfox after he spun out and then after battling some he ran out of fuel. So I finished 11th. :) Next race again I didn't get off to a great start and didn't change positions much the whole race. My pace wasn't good sadly but I was happy with my consistency and focus. :) I finished 9th.

Thanks for the racing tonight everyone it was real fun although i didn't do too well, bear with me, i will pick the pace up as i get used to it :D i'd also like to say a big thanks to Pink for organizing it, and inviting me some of you probably know me from other games, some won't. i was new to it tonight so if i held you up i apologize i pulled over as soon as i could without getting penalties. i also ran out of fuel just past pits 1st race and retired lol, my bad i didn't know i'd get kicked. Anyway great tracks and races good choice, i'd like to sign up for the September races too if you'll have me? Thanks again (:

Good racing! Thanks for joining :)

Is anyone actually feeling tyre wear? At brands, I barely had any front tyres left but it didn't feel any different and the Audi felt like it was getting better every lap. All mistakes were my fault, not the cars

I did feel it a lot in Sproket's GT3 championship on Friday - the tyres just fell to bits & it was really tough 5/6 laps from the end. But once the fuel burnt down it was actually really manageable & I set one of my fastest laps on the last lap with very worn tyres.

Didn't feel it in either race tonight though.

I didn't notice anything at Brands Hatch but at Leguna Seca I didn't feel as much grip on the tyres the last few laps, I noticed a difference. With September and 2x tyre wear the difference will be more pronounced. ;)

Very close battle on both leaderboards!
Especially tight for the 3rd place in the drivers championship :)
Also, l think 6 teams can still win the constructors title.
Double points at the Nordschleife :rolleyes:

Tyre wear at Brands was minimal but Laguna I was suffering really bad according to hud but in reality my times were not that bad so imo try not to look at wear but feel it.
Epic pole and race Pidgey I had no answer.
It was me Rob we got stuck at T1 Laguna.
Progressive did get out the way at Brands after I flashed ALOT but we've all got our own race.

Sorry for leaving early but also in old Merc touring round Le Bugatti 16laps. The same thing with front left this time but my last lap was only 0.4 slower and it was red and only 5%left.

Didnt have tires left on my Aston Martin either and got major understeer in the fast corners.
Same with the Audi, just wouldnt steer into left-hand corners.

Double points last race a?
Wasn't that scrapped because it made a mockery of F1. If you do a little bit of maths then double points is definitely favourable only for one person to win the championship on a home track.
I've just remembered I've got to bath my dog next week so I hope you all have a great race.

Yep. No incidents apart from me and Sproket getting glued to each other turn 1 at Laguna, everything else involved no contact apart Chig tapping me at turn 2 at Laguna when I outbraked myself. Everyone else seemed to have problems though, especially at Brands. Probably would have finished 9th if not for people crashing or spinning

What do you mean, jeez?
1 Race of the length of 2 races = double points.

So instead of 16 points for finishing 1st, you get 32.
Thats the same amount as if you won both races on a race day.

Clam down, l couldnt care less about winning the championship.
l care about fun.


1. 32
2. 30
3. 28
4. 26
5. 24
6. 22
7. 20
8. 18

10. 14
11. 12
12. 10
13. 8
14. 6
15. 4
16. 2

So, if you do your maths, then you would know that this doesnt favor anyone, because l would have to win and you would have to finish no higher than 12th for me to win the championship. So its highly uinlikely. Not sure whats with ruckus.

I'm assuming its because its 1 race rather than 2 and it will take a good hour to finish

Very sorry about what happened, you looked very fast, but again the game decides to do random stuff :(




Who are you again? ;)
Are you signing up or...? :confused:




What do you mean 'basic'? :p
The Sundays will just be as competitive as Mondays.




You said it yourself, you made a few mistakes, so it was only my right to pass you on fresh tires. And please dont start nitpicking. l bumped you, yes, but then l let a little gap between us.




Yep, went to the pits after 13 laps only for the hell of it. Was very disappointed with my race until then and the front right tyre only made that feeling worse. So l went for new tires to try to set the fastest lap at least :)




Yep, thats actually 40 seconds off the pace :rolleyes:
Its allowed.




It would be really nice if you guys cut a beginner some slack.




Thanks, you too :)
Very intense!

If you remember correctly pink the touch happened at the start before my mistakes happen..iv no problem with someone trying to un lap themselves but 1 you have to be quicker and 2 with more care so if you had any sense you would have stayed well back after you pit in the 1st place since you where only going for fast laps

Just remembered. Guys, especially Chig who can brake super late, just a reminder that I'm an early braker. It's safer for me and I feel its faster for mid-corner and exit speeds. Chig has scared the living daylights out of me 2 weeks running. Last week at the Hairpin at Ruapuna and Turn 2 at Laguna. He'd be about half a second to a second back, I'll turn in and Chig is filling my mirrors. At Laguna, I passed someone Turn 1, so was outside for Turn 2. Completed the pass before turn in, get to the Apex and Chig is suddenly there.

It's not a problem, just be careful when braking behind me :)

Hey everyone had to watch the Liverpool match after the race only posting up now. Really wasn't my night last night too many mistakes in both races joys of a long day Monday. Did ok qualifying at brands first race was on the second row but after about 3 laps it all fell apart loads of little mistakes. Great win for sproket really in a league of your own on that track great pole lap too.

2nd race just went worse not a big fan of the car and the track ended up packing it up after 5 laps after about 20 spins just wasn't happening yesterday. Same again pidgey serious pole lap and win for the 420 team probably could have won the team championship but for the week off. Great racing with ye again roll on next month to start fresh.

Yeah I'd be interested to know as well.

I've only done 2 laps so far - best one was 7:10.0, but I'd expect to improve a fair bit from that once I practice properly. If I can be going sub-7 minutes I'll be fairly happy I think.

Managed to improve to 6:58.0. Not sure how much quicker I can manage though TBH.

Still haven't got a bloody clue where I'm going half the time so I'm lifting off & tapping the brakes when I shouldn't be :mad:
