Special Notes: The grid procedure for Race 07 events is slightly different from GTL/GTR2. Upon joining the grid, you won't be able to rev your engine until all drivers are present on the grid. Do not attempt to esc back to garage or you will be DQ'd.

Did qualifying and felt ok with the car/track. Can't say I'm a fan of Silverstone and that version of it is pretty low quality. Anyway, I think I qualified 6th or something and was comfortable with controlling the car after some setup changes.

Started the race and the car felt completely and utterly different. I pressed the brake pedal at the end of the back straight and it literally went back to front on a dime and sent me into the gravel. What was that all about?! I carried on anyway but the car was ridiculously loose everywhere, so much so I simply couldn't keep it on the track. Had to quit in the end because I literally could not drive the car.

If someone can explain how the same car with the same setup from qually with just additional fuel can feel like someone added ice to the tyres and massive amounts of weight to the arse end then I'd like to hear it.

At least I didn't hit anyone else, so hope the rest of you had a more normal race.

Not just me then. I love Race07, but I struggle big time with the brake bias/handling.
What works in prac is horrible in a Race. race one I spun several times with a loose bum
and the usual weird braking, 1st the front locks up, then the rear grabs and I spin
had same issue with the Caterhams.

had some great dicing with Purds and Jamera in both races. had set the bias forward
a bit to 54% front, and could brake a bit better, or at least fall off less in race2
