    Took @praiano63's suspension tune. Made the car a lot more driveable through Tetre Rouge and Arnage.

    Caught the lead car at Maison Blanche on the 2nd lap. That 905B gave me a lot of grief, as did his buddy the 787B which I collided with on the 2nd chicane down Hunaudières.

    Ran 7:28:472 in the C60 Hybrid and placed 3rd. Gonna give it another go!

    Went back and ran dual 3:22:xxx on a 7:21:xxx time and got gold in the same car. Had to run it pretty hard to get the win.Till next time!

    image.jpeg Only two laps? That makes it a little bit tougher. Fun race.

    That AI is crazy here. On my first attempt I tought: Nope this is not a good lap, But that AI crashed so hard in a turn In lap 1. I was on the first place on the end of lap 1.

    Made one attempt with the LM55 and ended up 5th (after several punts and offs, with resulting penalities). Must try harder.

    Like @MoparGTS mentioned, with only 2 laps, it really is a proper, hang-your-tail-out race.

    Tried some cars but the Pescarola is the best shot so far for the gold.

    I can safely report that the Tajima e-Runner is absolutely hopeless for this event. I ran it for a laugh. Only saw the guy in 11th until the beginning of the Mulsanne Straight, then never again. Ended up over 1:20:000 behind the leaders. It's also a long way to drive an almost silent car...

    The BMW V12 LM was my gold winner. I had to have three goes, but eventually got there. First time round my gearbox was set a little low, so I was topping out on the straights if I got a tow, and missed out on first by about 2 secs in the end. Second time around, I tweaked the gearbox so I had more top end under a tow, snuck into first in the second half of the second lap, only to be side-swiped by the Toyota Minolta at the final chicane and gain a 5-sec ramming penalty!!! Fuming!!! So I had a third attempt, same settings on the gearbox, but softened the suspension a little for those bouncy straights, and snuck into first at the end of the straights on the second lap. From there on it was just a case of holding my position and keeping that ramming Minolta well off my rear quarters. Job done, with a 3 second win. :)

    I usually don't enjoy Circuit de la Sarthe, but really enjoyed this event. Might have to have a few more attempts in all the competitive cars!

    With the 2X VGT it was an easy win, although i had a terrible first lap, with a 360° spin.

    This was a great race for an A spec event... I usually only ever gold them and move on, but this one is worth a few visits :cool::tup:

    Used the Judd to gold it but will try another on my next visit :cheers:

    Edit: changed toe settings differential settings (7,35,15 front & rear) and 6th gear got 2nd. 9 seconds behind leader. can't figure out what else I need to change

    Not a lot of room for errors in this seasonal. This race was so close, found it pretty exciting.

    Only won by this much because the Pescarolo's couldn't stay on the track.

    First one in a while that has actually given me some trouble. Ended up doing it in the Sauber Mercedes C9.

    Need 3:22 - 3:25 type laps, start 37 seconds behind. 2X can do but spins out easily, Good test!

    Ah OK. And... Hopefully the fact that I did an oil change won't mess with it

    Won with the Sauber Mercedes C9. I just love the sound of this racecar.
