    Formula C career at Sugo in heavy rain - undriveable?

    So, last race of my short season in Formula C, at Sugo. Quali in light rain, no problem (on wets). Race starts dry, then heavy rain. I'm on wets. First laps, I can hardly keep the tyres from overheating. Then the rain comes, and I have no grip at all. Spinning in 40 kmh, barely turning, barely touching the throttle. It's like ice. I plummet from first to last position, and can't keep the car on track. AI (21 cars) slows down a bit, but does not have the grip problem I have.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    I then tried private testing in rain at Sugo, and had no trouble at all driving. Completely different from the race.

    Have you tried it with the Traction Control on to see if it improves things?

    Ok, thanks, looking forward to improvements.
    Just to clarify: the wet tyres are first burning up (before the rain) then when rain starts they have no grip. Quali in light rain and private testing in rain are no problem.

    I'll check if TC can save this race for me. Great little track, Sugo! So fun with career, it puts me in cars and tracks I never tried before.

    Couldn't agree more, I've not actually spent a huge amount of time there as i try to vary track usage(so many to choose from!!!) but I've really enjoyed Sugo.

    hay I was just looking for the exact problem which is gonna make me crazy. I spent lots of time in this race too. I thought what if maybe it's the game's plan. I changed suspension and downforce and other settings many time, but apparently it's not gonna happen! what did you do with this race finally pal?

    Don't really remember actually I probably drove like a proper grannie in the rain, blocking the AI for all I had, and got a good enough result. I must add that my knowledge about tyre management, setups in general, and in rain in particular, is very limited now. Back then I knew even less
