I have never driven here but looks like a simple track with few corners. First hairpin propably the only passing place. Let's see how the weather will be like...

From early testing my quali pace is 1:16 flat, feel like there's still half a second somewhere to find though.

Edit: Managed to get it down to 1:15.5.

Also have to remember that drafting is massive on this track, feel like if you come out of the pits behind someone quick in quali, then chances are you'll earn around half a second to a second just through the draft :unsure:

Welcome to Texas Roadway!

Once considered one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR circuit, overtaking should not be a problem for our GT3's! Under the lights at night, it should be a fine looking one as well.

Along with this, there should be no rain to be seen as both the race and qualifying will be under medium cloud conditions.

Good luck all!

Managed about a 1:16.2 in my first ever practice at this track not with race fuel though.

I was stupid enough to race the Clios yesterday. It was great, but today I realized how terrible this M6 is to drive. Also proved how terrible I am at driving different cars between races. On Thursday, in my first practice on this track I did 1:16,5, but today I couldn't get below 1:17,9 and it felt like drifting a school bus. :)

On the positive side, I got a new 2080 as a replacement for the faulty one. In yesterday's Clio race the frame rate was basically flawless (except when someone left, then it still dropped a few frames), but we didn't have many cars on track, so...

Clio's are great fun once you get the hang of them. Shame I had to drop.

I have done a few 1:16s with qualy fuel and a mixture of 1:17s and 1:18s in race trim. My PCars says that Blunboi holds the world record here. Blunboi and the aliens are doing 1:15/14s.

I did try the Lambo, but after 30 minutes of doing a basic setup on it I only managed to match my Audi time. The tricky part with the Audi is you have to set the downforce, practically to 0 and drive turn 1 at full speed with your fingertips. Still have test if this will be possible after 48 laps and worn tyres.

Not expecting to do well here and I have no idea about how well I will do at Laguna, so I think the championship fight will come down to Libo, Poisike and Slow.

Well.. i hate this track. i know hate is a strong word, but this is by far the least fun track in this game. i had to set my TC to insane levels. Loads of interference and managed to stay stable from low 16´s to high 16´s. i guess i could get a top 15 if i stay on the track.

I don't know. My lap board looks in practice race looked like a random number generator tonight. 16.2 with help of a tow, but mostly 17s and 18s with worn tyres a few 24s for good measure and some sight seeing across the infield backwards. It's not faster but it has less corners. Grass needs watering though. :)

Sneezing in VR in the banked turn one is ... amusing. Not recommended.

For some reason I just can't take this race seriously. My bets are on Slow, then Voodoo, then Poisike with Blunboi landing in there amongst them no doubt. If I get top 10 I'll feel lucky.

I have nothing. Haven't done much practice, don't even know if my setup works the whole race. Got a weird pain in neck when I turn my head, started yesterday evening and is still there. No idea whats up with that and if I can even drive like this. But I will give it a try, if it gets bad I will park my car and @Captain Slow receives his well deserved championship title tonight.

Great race tonight, surprised the Audi actually had the legs to go to the end and win... Sorry again to @VoodooChild for the tap, I did let you go and I'm hoping I didn't give you any damage, sorry again :(
