Fun to drive the Skyline again and an interesting experiment, but not one I will likely want to repeat. The 26.2 laptime is bogus because I think I got a big cut on my fastest lap, but mid 26 legal times are well within reach which was miles quicker than the other cars - and this at a track that doesn't favour the Skyline, as GT says. But that tyre wear was brutal, and after getting behind Geoff I was just trying to survive. Predicted RF puncture happened after 23 minutes..

Needs more ballast to reduce the laptime (probably more than 100Kg), but that will likely hurt the tyre wear even further, so not really much fun to drive it with other cars atm. Hopefully the scheduled physics update for these cars will resolve these issues, but until then I'll go back to my beloved Audi!

Congrats Geoff and podium.

I dont know what happened i just could not do the times from practice earlier in the week and the more i fiddled the worse it got!
Well done Geoff on the win another 10 second lead over the line, might have to go back to the mustang  Grin
Looks like i will have to spend a little time on the BM or bin it
well done Pete on 3rd and the fastest lap (apart from Frex one which was quicker)  Embarrassed

till the next one!

No practice, and being late to the server, made my think it was going to be a lonely race but it wasn't too bad. Had a good battle with JP for half the 1st lap and settled in to following him. Dieter quickly caught up and a small mistake allowed him a run. Was never going to keep the position if I survived that battle so let him go. Sadly a few laps later another couple of small errors meant I dropped back a bit further, however a clean lap keep my in sight of John so that gave me hope and something to concentrate on. After that puncture I caught John, but another mistake and I was 2 secs behind again. I guess the heavier Beamer might have had more tyre wear and I got close again at the end but never with enough pace to mount an attack.

My front right hand tyre was yellow after 20 mins but survived to the end without going orange or flashing at me, although I reckon it must have been close.

The small errors I keep making are my own doing but I do enjoy these so much more than the modern GT3's etc with all their aero. After not really liking GTL I never expected to be saying that!

Same here Pete, I find these probably the most enjoyable cars to drive in RRE, they go where you want them to & have a decent amount of power & grip. I always seem to be fighting understeer in the modern stuff, guess GTL setup methods don't really work with cars that don't slide.

Didn't get any practice for this except for a few laps before joining the server. Initially could not get the Omega below mid 1.28, but a couple of setup tweaks & moving braking a couple of notches to the rear helped the car turn better & I got into the 1.27s.

Finally got a half decent start & took the lead, gradually opened a bit of a gap to John, but then Frex got into 2nd place & started to close in. Gap came down to under 2s & then hovered between 2 &4s for several laps until suddenly I was 8s ahead of John. Thought Frex had made a mistake, didn't realise he had blown a tyre  Shocked. So finished 9s to the good at the flag.

Like to think I am getting the hang of these cars, but it's really the car that is making the difference!

Congrats to John & Pete  clap clap, bad luck to those that didn't make the finish.
