Had a quick drive round last night for first time. Looks like a track where you can gain so much from cutting just enough of a corner without getting a penalty.

Even in T-cam turn 1 is pish, tried your set up last night and it seemed quite good, @danio time is rapid though!

Notice to all drivers!

For the upcoming race in France, the time of day will be set to "Midday" rather than 'Official.' Directive from the AOR higher-ups. Reason being the 'Official' time of day looks more like sunset rather than real-life conditions. Also, the lighting makes the track very difficult to see and shiny, which murders spectating and the streams.

Tagging @Limaro Fipama and @danio as they are our hosts.

I'll also post on the PSN chat. Thanks!

My time is not the best. I did only a couple of laps there and I did not expect being there so quick. I did not cut any corner as far as I remember but you can have a look it by setting my time as ghost. I will probably run faster there but if this will be consistent enough for race?! Hmm will see. I did not expect dnf in Canadain such a foolish mistake so hopefully France brings me some points but reality may be different again for me.

I’m beginning to like this track, once you get into a rhythm it’s good fun. The pit entry is a bit dodgy though.

Agreed, I'm pleasantly suprised at my pace though, first time on the game in a few weeks plus on a completely new track and already on the pace. I'll take that ;)

Yeah it's pretty good once you get focused, can properly throw the car through the corners. I just need to be careful not to drop it engine braking in the final sector.

Quali P4 ruined by invalidations on both SS runs and the end starting on ultras and up on the terrible 2 stop strategy.

Race P8 was a mixture of bad strategy, getting mixed up in tangles and all round bad driving. Just a terrible day, this should’ve been a race win. Congrats to @JimiRäikkönen on your first win (y)
