Sneaked some laps in earlier, 1:03 (race fuel)for me so far. Car hustles along quickly but you just don't get the sense of it being a proper powerful beast, prob due to the slightly weak Kunos engine sound for it. Understeers like a barge at fast T1. Just hope we can race close enough in them in this shortened version of the track.

Not a big fan of the foggy setting, the track is almost black with a white sky. Very hard to see.

Think race needs to be a bit more than 25 laps to get 30 minutes.

I thought the default setup was quite tricky. Normally they are very safe and understeery, but it kicks quite a bit. Braking for the half of Maggots and Beckets is very tricky (read annoying).

If anybody has a proper setup  Grin

If it looks different to the pic at the top (the fog) you might try turning post processing on and see if that helps, i think there might of been an issue with fog some time ago but i thought it was sorted.

The car is a challenge to drive at 98% you actually have to put some time into the car and practise, also, just go slower, you will find the car becomes much better.

I cant add my setup here because im on my phone but try lowering the rear arb and make the back softer. Also, try about 28psi all round.

Thanks, will try that setup.

Shouldn't the race be 29 laps for half an hour race, or do you expect us to fall off so often  Grin

I struggled to enjoy that sadly  :-( just don't like ill handling understeery cars on tight corner layouts. Plus I was really tired.
Q'fied well in 4th but that only lasted 1 or 2 laps before braking at beckets sent me spinning off to the back of the class.
Fought my way back up and enjoyed some chases with Frex but some mid race warping ruined things and I lost race pace as I wondered what the heck was happening to cars around me. Finished up 7th but had been sorely tempted to quit for last 5 laps.
Well done the front guys and congrats to JR on the win.

That was a lot of hard work. Imagine 24 hours in this  Shocked.

Lost a place to Chris at the start, as I just can't start in AC without the gear selection as an option. Luckily, this time I was able to stay close to him, and at the halfway point, he went a bit wide at T1, and we did the rest of the lap side by side, and I could just keep it infront at the last corner.

Tried desperatly to increase the gap after that, as these cars are a handful alone, but fighting in the meantime, makes it really hard.

Saw something about Mickey Mouse track, and at first I was worried as well when I saw it was the national version. However, the corners in this version, is what these cars saw back in the days, fast corners. The full track was demolished with the stupid hairpins and removal of good sections.

Only thing I didn't like about this track layout, was turn 2/3 halfway through Maggot.

The fog looked atmospheric, but it was so hard to see. If people had a dark car and no lights on...  blink

Saw something about Mickey Mouse track ...

It was me.

Rant mode on (click)

For example, slow defensive line through Copse and no chance to overtake untill maybe Brooklands (easy to defend) and lap is finished.
Even if he make a mistake by going too deep at Maggotts, it is likely that he will out accelerate you ...

My point is no matter how many laps, there is not enough corners to make mistake or exploit someones.
These kind of tracks are good for slow cars but not for anything over 300bhp and less than ton of weight.

Rant mode off (click)

My race?
Not worth to remember any part of it as it started with, for me unexplainable, ping issues forcing me to skip qualifying (again)...

See you next race ...
