Due to the American and Mexican races on the next two weekends. Round 4 is in 3 weeks time which means there is plenty of time for practice!! ;)

I might see if I can set some kind of social up for this race at some point. I am away for 5 days next week but that shouldn't be an issue.

Count me in - Ill be up for some practice - quick question. I seem to be at least 3 to 4 seconds off the pace from most of you guys and I am sure their is an element of ability!!! but I seem to have the wrong setup each time. Would appreciate some suggestions on the G920 wheel. I think Im having trouble having to turn too much into a corner and seem to have massive under steer at times.

Not sure about the rest of the field but I usually run Limitless' or fin's setups and they're always pretty solid for me. I can't speak to the wheel settings though so I'll let somebody else chime in there

I'm guessing it is car setup rather than wheel setup?

Not sure if anybody has been practicing yet but the best time I seem to be able to put down is around a 1:35... the problem is the corner cutting/track extending is real tough here. Gotta put together a really clean lap and I was running about 1/3 penalty free at that pace.

I did a little last week. Can get mid 1:35's penalty free, with a bit more time in the bag. Seem to struggle at the final sector. Your right tho, it's soooo easy to exceed track limits and ruin your lap here but It feels so good when you do get it right aha

Still stuck in 1:35 land. I'm getting more consistent on track in terms of corner cutting though

Hmm same. Takes a while tho. Managed a 1:35.1 right off the bat and smashed my PB earlier. That was in time trial tho

Maybe. What baffles me is the times that the guys at the top doo. They're like 2 seconds + ahead
