AOR iRacing GTE League - Season 4
Round 8:
Autódromo José Carlos Pace


Let's try our first foray into Europe again shall we?! Thanks iRacing. Ruining our Belgian relaxation spa time. Take the servers down on race time why don't you? Seriously though, that was uncool. For now though, we continue on with our championship. This track is amazing. High speed, low speed technical bits, hilarious elevation change. It's a really fun track.

Hopefully the maintenance has fixed the bug that stopped drivers from recreating the great expedition of 2012 when a certain Kimi Räikkönen got very lost.

I've done well in the past here, cheating aside, so let's see how this one goes. Hopefully I don't explode out of the pits this time. With all the slow speed stuff, and a decently long straight, the Ferrari's should have a good time here, just depends on whether the tyres can be kept alive enough.

The twisty middle sector should suit well for the Ferrari. Short wheelbase makes the car very agile.

One of my favourite tracks on this seasons calendar. Hopefully I can actually finish. One of my only official wins came here in week 1 of the ILMS as well, looking forward to this one!

Did my first laps after a long time not racing. Either I did get very slow or I picked the wrong car (Porsche). What lap times are you guys doing?

VRS reference is a 1:29.6 at 25.5C air temp and 40C track temp.
That would be the fight for the podium I guess :)

I'll be aiming at 1:32, but haven't done practice yet.

Ouch that means that I'm currently 4 sec of the pace for podium - will have to get used to the mirrors to watch for lapping cars ;-)

Welcome to my world! ;)

Make sure to match track and air temp, it has quite a big impact on lap times.

This will be brutal for the tires. Did an official race, track temp was 33C and the front tires quit after 15laps or so and caused horrific understeer. After 45min fronts were down to 60% or so. Might have to take tires here, especially if hot. The Porsche’s seemed strong here!


Oh, and I hate turn 4, 8 offtracks there

Lapping might not be easy here. Pro drivers, please be patient
