I reckon low/mid 1:25s is reasonable? No doubt someone will produce a 1:24
Touching some high 1:25's and low 1:26's. Some corners I'm still having to work on, just to get the braking zone down to a Tee

we start on the 24,5s to touch the 25s ... after 3-4 laps the rubber wear becomes fundamental :)

It's been good , shame touring cars is not raced more often as it's such a fun series, can drive really close when you race with others that have full control of car and have similar pace .
Honestly, I started with more enthusiasm when I entered the tournament because I came from some race with BMW and I remember a great driving pleasure but since I have been with Renault, this front-wheel drive turns off every emotion in driving it. I hope there will be other tournaments in the future, but single-brand at BMW :p

Not had much experience with the Beemer so not sure but the times I have had it's harder to drive on most tracks and could you get as close drive wheel to wheel with the Beemer?
For sure I would try though a Beemer mini series

First of all, many congratulations to my friend @Jarryd Vermeulen , teammate and now TC AOR champion. It was an honor to share AOR's box and chat in these months and it will probably still be for a long time probably haha

As far as I'm concerned .... well, moral in pieces, in many, very small pieces: I had trained well, I had the pace to win (or sure to fight for the victory), I had taken pole at the last second ( I couldn't make a decent tour until that moment ...) and then at the start ... the game throws me out of the room. Race 2 I wanted to try to win it but unfortunately I could not avoid the BMW and with 16 of damage the hopes of going to get those in front have vanished at that moment (but 24.9 despite that damage makes me happy).

I awaited this final battle with anxiety and excitement but the game and destiny deprived me of all this. You will therefore understand that yes, I am super happy for Jarryd and our team, but personally I am really sad.

Thanks to all the guys in this fun tournament and thanks especially to our fantastic admin who, as always, have allowed us all this, always with maximum efficiency and organization. So if you do not have to participate in tournaments in the future, thank you very much to everyone, from the heart, for everything! Bye all
