    Hmmm, I'm still mightily slow with the wheel (slower than normal even!!) but this looks like quite a friendly combo to get used to it and not embarass myself completely! I'll have a go and see how I compare, then I'll decide whether to submit :lol:

    Nice and easy to drive combo. Only problems I have is getting the right line through the long right hairpin, and of course, getting a consistent lap!

    Question: does the split-fetcher need a new post to register new splits or is edititing and old post sufficient?
    Thanks for feedback!
    This new leaderboard is really really nice! :tup: Respect for the creators!

    Heiko, it's perfectly ok to edit your splits posted like you're used to. Best thing is to use strike-throughs to make sure WRSFetchBot handles the edited splits well.

    A small request from my side is to please make all remarks or put all questions about the WRS Leaderboard in its own thread here.

    Pffft, don't know about the very last corner. Usually I start drifting (slippering) half way till just before hitting the curves again.
    Someone a 'plan of attack'?

    I use quite a wide entrance, the straight is quite wide, so you can go through it quite quickly. Don't go too wide, as there isn't much grip out very wide.

    The last corner is a make or break corner. Don't attack it to much or you will find yourself sliding to the outside. I keep it far right then bring it in allowing me to get on the gas early and avoid the runoff area. Use 3rd gear :tup:

    Your format is perfect.

    The system should recognize this, but i've seen a bug with editing before.... i'll look into this.

    I was wrong, apparently WLB does not handle edited splits well. I'll confer with Marijn about the required format for correctly handling edited splits.

    For now I made a manual update of your edited splits.

    Problem should be fixed now.

    (The system sometimes didn't import edited posts because it thought it already existed)
