Definitely an enjoyable track to race on. I am so happy that I am using the wheel now :D

Although the tire wear might be an issue, got to have some practice and tests.

Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this race due to work :-(. I still hope I have some time to setup the car and help my team to get a good result.
I also just got my dutyplan for August: maybe I'll miss Round 6 (have standby that evening, so crossing my thumbs).
And unfortunately I definetely will miss Round 7 & 8, as I'm in a different city and cannot carry around my PC ;-)

Never heard of this track or raced around it.

Only positive I can draw is the walls are not as close to you as Monaco :D

Tire wear seems to be a big issue for me. Here are my tires after 10 laps:

Sorry for the screenshot quality, forgot to save uncompressed copy. Also I've got a lot of work to do setup-wise, and I will fiddle around with FFB on my wheel. Any tips? :D

Maybe for your ffb. What kind of wheel do you have? If a g27, take a look at 2x tire wear discussion. There's a good video from @Mazy CZ

I've got a DFGT. To be honest this was my first run, I changed some things in my setup, my times dropped around 1.5s and my left front is lasting around 14 laps, although I still think it is not the best wear I've ever had.

The way I understand it @p n k is as follows, a tyre with a high pressure will heat up quicker but not retain that heat. A tyre with a lower pressure will take longer to heat up, but will retain the heat better. You want a mix between the two, sometimes its not just the tyre pressure thats cooking the tyre, you must look at downfoce, camber and all that.

Since its overcast, I would suggest starting with a lower pressure.

Was on for a few laps with @p n k & @Paradyski and concluded that this track is going to shred tyres :(
We were doing laps a little more time then, and from what I've observed it shreds tires on qualifying "full speed mode", but if you settle down for a safer strategy during the race I think it is able to stay around 12-14 laps. Although you may lose some seconds a lap.

Also I hope to hit top 5, or maybe top 8 in this race :D
