Before you take to the track in the league race, make sure you are fully aware of the rules and regulations of the leagues. As a driver in our leagues, you are required to do your very best to ensure clean and fair racing at all times.
● No-shows: If you are unable to attend the race, please inform the League Coordinator and leave a post in this thread BEFORE the race takes place. Note the rules of participation here.

all drivers please note - once qualifying has started, if you dc, you may attempt to rejoin the lobby once only - multiple rejoins can cause framerate drops for drivers on track and possibly lobby instability, so if you dc again, please do not attempt further rejoins - thank you

Any lap times references for this track?

On my side, I was stuck in the mid 1.45 (soft tyres) for the Time Trial after multiple tries before the season opening. But I've tested yesterday with tyre wear and fuel depletion and I was in the mid 1.44 :unsure: in the 1st attempt. Dunno why I suddenly won a full second so easily...
I've also tested with Hards tyres for the first time ever on this car and I was also in the mid 1.44... The car just slides a bit more but stil pretty stable.

Knowing some of you have Tier 1 skills, I guess 1.43 is good, or even 1.42 maybe?

hard tires, race fuel, high 1.45 to start off. This race is interesting though because of the rain pace also

just a note from our practice sessions - it seems some drivers have been able to get away with cutting the last chicanes - i would remind you all that aor rules are two wheels inside the white lines at all times, and repeated breaches may see you in front of the stewards
also please be careful about weaving to break the tow on the main straight

Congrats to podium finishers and everyone else.
It was just a nightmare race for me. Rain is definitely out of my skills. Dunno when to brake, dunno when to turn, dunno when to push the throttle etc.
Or maybe I have to work on a setup...

My setup was not great felt better in the wet.
Then got DSC when kovy hit the tyres coming out of last corner. See you all at Le Mans.
