    Time Trial track temps vary track to track

    I was under the impression that Ambient & Track temps for TT where set at a constant that was replicated on all track/car combos?

    I have been running Ginetta Junior TT and noticed the Ambient/Track temps vary from track to track

    Brands Hatch GP - Ambient 18 Track 28
    Donnington National Ambient 28 Track 46
    Knockhill National Ambient 15 Track 22
    Silverstone International Ambient 25 Track 42
    Silverstone National Ambient 25 Track 42
    Snetterton 200 Ambient 26 Track 42

    Is it right that track temps vary from track to track ?

    I don't see that it matters all that much, it only matters that the temperature or cloud type does not change during the TT and is consistent for everybody. I'd certainly expect Knockhill to be colder than the other circuits, given that it's located a long way North in the UK.

    The only odd one out in that list, to me, is Brands Hatch, given that it's the southern-most of the UK tracks in the game but maybe there's a plausible explanation (I'll go and check if the in-game date is the same at Brands as it is at the other circuits)


    EDIT : I've just had a look and, yep, the in-game dates are different for each circuit. Brands time-trial has the in-game date as April whilst, for example, Cadwell Park is August and Donington is July. That would explain the difference. Again, the only important thing is that they are consistent for each player.

    Your right it doesn't matter although I hadn't spotted that or thought it would change and was confused when tyres didn't react as I thought , which is explained by different temps

    Back to revisit those I struggled with now I know why

    TT mode always runs with identical weather conditions and time of day but at the default date which varies from track to track.
