I've just done a Custom Race with x6 fuel in the Subaru WRX. Without any fuel saving I was on target for 10.5 laps. No idea what the time loss per lap on hards is compared to fuel saving. Plus of course the longer you run it the less time you lose refueling in the pits.For those in GT2 and below, what are your thoughts on pitting off hards to softs after lap one and running fuel map 3 or 4 to the end?
I could certainly see me being tempted to come in early if I started on hards and was stuck at the back of traffic. If I start on softs then I could well try short shifting plus lift and coast when in traffic to eek out an extra lap or two.
Overall I think I'm going to be hoping to qualify nearish the front and start on softs, then play it by ear from there.
