    Finally beat this event with the Viper. Judging by everyone else's times, I'm guessing I shouldn't have won this, heh. But winning this did involve the Huayra getting into a bit of a... unfortunate accident.

    Drove very cautiously on the last lap to avoid unnecessary screw ups, plus I think I feel the SS tyres fading on me. Not to mention... y'know, it's a Viper.

    Used the NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo for this one, the hybrid system really helps in the uphill sections and no problems with overheating tires thanks to the AWD.

    image.jpg This is a good challenge, need 2:05-2:08 laps depending on the rabbit. I had a nice win with an Enzo. Lots of rubbin' and racin' in this one just like the recent V8 Supercup race at this track last month. By the way, 2:08 with race car 600PP and RH tires was considered a Gold a Time in TT.

    Only managed to.p beat this once with a ZZII. Been struggling with anything else against the Huayra. Must stop getting penalties.

    That is the key no penalties. You can do it for sure. Also any kind of side swiping of wall and other cars will slow you down.

    Thanks a lot @Yeahnego for using my Audi R8 4.2 FSI R Tronic '07 for this event. It's a real pleasure to read your comments and your satisfaction. Thanks again my friend @Yeahnego :cheers:

    With the nissan concept I overtook the Huayra on lap 3 and won by 20 seconds, the final time was 10:38 and I had multiple 2:03 laps. You should try it for an easy win.

    Can confirm the Nissan Concept 2020 was a breeze.

    Amazing how bad you can get without playing for nearly a month! Felt like I never raced before! I took the Boss 302 (598 PP...Forgot to check PP before race!:dunce:) out for a spin and got a win against a wimpy field. Crappy time and crappy driving, but I do believe this is the first time I have ever got a win in a Mustang in an expert level seasonal? They usually aren't very competitive because they are so heavy...

    Special shoutout to @OdeFinn and his special contribution to Mad Finn Tuners brand of tuned cars for getting me through this event with the RUF CTR2 '96. This also got me through a tough Cote d'Azur event about a year or so ago as well.

    Hi,

    Can some one explain this to me please?

    I look at Cory's time (10.27) with a win. 2nd place 38 seconds behind.

    I am running this event in a variety of cars. Finishing the event in around 10.45. Best I can manage so far is 5th place.

    Am I missing something please?

    Regards as always.

    Ian.

    It tends to be that if you don't gap them immediately, they'll race you and go faster than they normally would by outbraking and slipstreaming. So if you pass them, go as fast as possible. Same happens when you run into them, they will pull away from you.

    Yep, and ramming them on purpose then drafting them is a good thing on those two long straights. But a bad thing everywhere else. Strategic Ramming™. :D

    Just did five 2:00.xxx laps doing that.

    Couldn't get the last lap in the picture. :dunce:

    How can you ram them without getting a penalty?
    Or are you able to catch them after the penalty?

    Ram them straight in the back and not too hard. The superfast driving lasts for about 30 seconds, so you can catch them.

    No penalty. Nice little tap on the back bumper. Maybe even a couple more. Bump drafting. Kicks them into launch mode.

    AH HA!
    I have noticed light taps don't incur dreaded penalties
    Never thought of using it to my advantage that way, thanks for the tip,

    Hmmmmm!

    Strategic Ramming? I would call it Expert Ramming!

    Thats not something you would want to Google in front of your mother or father :-)

    Thanks for the tip though. I will try that next time out.

    Best regards.

    Ian.

    It is not called ramming, it's called a love tap :tup:.

    I enjoyed doing that just for kicks in all of these seasonal races. Going in front and blocking them too just to watch them get frustrated. haha. Was too funny.

    :cheers:, the one thing I like at this event at Bathurst is to catch the leader on lap 3 and just give him a love every now and then :tup:.
