That was hands down the most fun challenge so far.
Great car/track combo:)

Conversely, I hope I never drive that combo again whilst I have breath in my body :o. For me, it was simply the circuit, one I have never enjoyed driving (great as a spectator track though :) ) - it's all stop/go/stop/go/stop/go, with barely any real flow to it, from corner to corner.

I will agree that it was a challenge though and, for that, it was an excellent combo to put people to the test :).

For what it's worth, this was my 8th-placed lap in the PC division

Both S1 and S2 were just over 0.1s down on my best so, IF I had managed to hook those up with a decent 3rd sector, I would have been in the 1m51.2 (possibly high 1m51) times. As it was, I just couldn't string all 3 together on the same lap :(.


EDIT : Really looking forward to the last 2 rounds. Snetterton is just 25 minutes up the road from me so it's about as local a circuit as it's possible to get. Oddly, I've only done one real-life trackday there though and that was on the old layout. The season finale at Bathurst is the one I'm most looking forward to :).

...technically he has only 2 wheels off track in that image...Indeed :)

The rules state that at least 2 wheels must be in contact with the track at all times. The white line, at the edge of the track, is also considered to be part of the track - anything past that white line is 'off track'.

EDIT : To clarify, I don't believe any of the rules have changed. I was just referring to the track limits in my paragraph above.

I'm not going to try and explain why some laptimes are deemed invalid, I am not one of the organisers. If you have a legitimate concern about a lap being disallowed then send a message to the Project CARS Esports (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/member.php?137229-Project-CARS-Esports) team :yes:.

As explained in each driver briefing:

If SMS staff decide that a ghost is marginal on track limits, as both of those images are, then we contact the team or driver to ask for video footage of the actual lap.

If the team or driver does not provide video footage when requested, then their time is not included in the official results.

Only video footage which clearly shows the driver's correct lap time can be accepted.

Oh Sh1t only realised now I never used the DRS I know it would not have effected any of the top 20 but geez what an error on my part, My times were in the 1.55's now I will try and remember and see what a difference this will make on my time. Slap me with a plank........... oh not to bother already done by myself
