I will be entering once again in the GT3 championship this weekend.
Our hopes will be to score as many points as possible. Catching WWR is a bit difficult in this stage of the season.

Don't know what laptimes you guys are running, but so far my best is only a 1:25.412. I'm not sure I will be able to improve much or at all sadly! I still need a bit more time to get used to the wheel and pedals but who knows what will happen.

at the moment Dan, with very minor tweeks to the tune i used at Bugatti, i put down a 1:24.825 and saw green for a 24.60x. im still tweeking, as im off the throttle alot in the corners, and im not comfortable with that. i got the rest of today and tomorrow. Wink

edit: ok. i guess it didnt take me too long. Razz i just managed to run a clean 1:24.597! what i'll be able to run consistently? probably the 24.8's-25.0's. Laughing there are still a couple corners though that have a little oversteer issue (if you put the throttle down too early of course) on corner-exit. the exit of Turn 1's double-apex, the exit of the corkscrew and the exit of the final-hairpin corner. the left hander the leads onto Rahal Straight is probably my weak point at this track, to try and hit that the same way lap after lap...
Dan, i will shoot you over this tune, as i will also send it over to Y22

It isn't so much the tune Switch thats worrying me. Its the fact I need to speed up a little quicker with the wheel and pedals. I know I keep saying it but you'd be surprised after playing racing games with the controller and then jumping straight to the wheel.
If I'm not quick anymore, I can accept that and just race to what I can do.

I've reduced my laptime down to a 1:25.073 but thats as far as I can do probably. But I'll keep trying. Wink

yeah, i have always heard there is a learning curve in the transition from the controller and the wheel-pedals. i would switch over as well, and can afford a wheel-pedal set, but i lack the space to store it when not in use.

After 30 minutes of solid driving, I can do no better than a 1:24.895 but I only got into the 1:24's once sadly. Crying or Very sad

But I have been consistently lapping between 1:25.1xx and 1:25.6xx

Well done guys!
Absolutely fantastic team performance tonight and I was really pleased to get our first victory of the season in race 2. I really didn't expect that but it was a shame we couldn't get all three cars in the top four. But I know you've had some back luck in race 2 as well. cheers cheers
Well done Chris as well on your finishes in B lobby! Wink

yeah, the carnage was unavoidable in the 2nd race. im sure if the outside wall on Rahal Straight stayed away from my vette, i would've been able to track down Y22 and General to regain a 4th place spot. oh well. on to Road America. and speaking of which, this tune ive been currently working on for there, has reached a 2:05.910 for now, and i feel real comfortable with it. this week i will change gears a little and focus on my BMW M3 E30 for the CER at Road Atlanta. if anything is a precursor from the Nurburg GP race, my E30 wont need much change.

i was happy with a solid 7th in race 1
then in the 2nd race i was a bit dissappointed not to stay with you Dan as i might have got a podium, but 4th is still a good finish.
It just about kept me in 4th place overall so its going good this season
