@GIXXERosg your race pace is much better than mine. I'm currently in the high 33's or low 34's. And my tire wear is a little high too.

Need more practice in quali. I'll try some laps tonight before the practice race

I found the reason for my fast times, thanks to @Stephan

See in the announcement where it says Donington Park? I read that as Brands Hatch, and I've been practicing the Brands circuit.

So I did the practice race, after 3 laps to learn the circuit. In that race I did some 30's in the dry and 36's in the wet.I was quite inconsistent and need much more practice. I was using my Brands setup, I need to work on it.

A prayer to the gods of racing to get me through without the Mclaren deciding to give up all traction and send me on a safari through the British countryside.

My VR setup is completely unplayable because of juddering and screen freezes so will try a monitor. Will be really slow because not used to it. Nothing seems to help and I have tried EVERY solution I could find online.

well, this is one of my all time fav tracks to drive on, so did not spend time doing any practice before today.

did a race sim and had a REALLY consistent run with the times being low 29's for the first 10-15 laps, then the tires got worse and the rain started, but managed to keep it in the 30's consistently on ruined tires and a little water on the track.

but as soon as the track was wet enough to put on the wets, my times just dropped SO much more than I thought...

dunno if it's me, or if its just the difference this track, but only able to drive 35'ish on wet track and tires. whats your guys times in the wet? :/

I suck soooo badly in the wet!
Was so surprised by qualifying 2nd - and if it would have stayed dry, quite sure I could have fought for a podium, despite some minor early mistakes.

Once the track started getting wet, I was utterly useless, especially in the last 2 turns, the hairpin and the (in VR Blind!) turn unto start/finish.
In laps I didn't spin there, lost about 3 seconds each lap, when I spun there, much much more time.

I always had that problem in those 2 turns in the rain, offline, online, everytime.

Had a few hairy moments in those 2 last turns with drivers pushing to pass me, hope it was all ok for you guys!

Gutted I lost so many positions, but that's racing. Now, off to Brno in the dry.
Gotta learn the track, but it should be favorable for the Ginetta, so gotta aim for top 5 there!


Edit: Forgot to save the replay :(
Can anyone share their file? Would like to snap some shots from it :)

I am quite happy with my result, since I had 20 minutes to setup the cars and do some laps. Started 11th on the grid, which was not that bad. Unfotunatelly I could not avoid @kevin bolland when he got collected by @VoodooChild . Had to pit at the end of lap 2 to repair the damage. Was 20th with a 15 second gap to P19.

In the end finished 7th with and made 2 pitstops. Had hoped to run at the front to be able to have a shot at the championship, but I guess that is unlickely now.

@Seamas111 Congrats with an other conving win!
