    How did the practice lobby go? What sort of times were people pulling? I haven't been able to break out of the 1:31s with the Gr4 Aston, so I'm guessing the Astons in the Gr4 catagory will be doing 1:26's.

    I was running consistent mid 25's in the Gr.3 Jag. @Michelin Man was running fairly consistent low 25s, with the odd high 24 in the Gr.3 Aston.

    Sounds like I won't be lapped as many times by my own class as I thought :lol: ! Now I just have to hope I don't miss the race.... the time here in Oz changes that morning :crazy:.

    31 laps is the maximum I can last on a full tank, so will be aiming for a two-stop strategy once again (how many laps per stint I'm not entirely sure yet).

    That would be nice ... I'll only be a couple of seconds off the pace for a change. I should only get lapped once.. maybe twice :lol:.

    Just opened up a practice lobby to get into the groove for tonight. Will run it for approx. 1 h. It's friends only.

    Edit: Lobby closed again. The Gr.4 Jaguar is nice to drive, but tire wear definetly has to be handled in the later parts of a stint. Timeswise, the occassional 1:29 and a lot of 1:30s seems about right for me atm, hope to get some more consistency in. I think for the fastest drivers in our group 1:28s will definelty be achieved at least.

    lol been there done that. Whether it's multi class or single class, I usually end up as a back marker. If ghosting is on, people tend to just drive through the ghost (Mad Max is famous for it :lol:). If ghosting is off then if I don't stick to my line, I end up in the sand :crazy:. Trying to be a gentleman and moving aside just isn't worth it. Sure, if faster drivers get held up by me, the people behind them can catch up, but that's racing :p. If they are already beside me approaching a corner I may brake a bit earlier to let them through and tuck in behind them, but that only works if there enough gap between them and the car behind them, otherwise the car behind them usually forces their way through and I end pounding sand or doing a rally cross impression :crazy:. .

    Should be a good race, just hope I don’t stack it like I usually do at brands. I managed 10 laps of practice last night in TT without a crash so fingers crossed.

    TEAM ASTON!!!

    Being a gentleman and moving over can cause more issues for faster classes than it solves.

    Only for the Aston Martins :D

    Ok cool, that’s the ballpark I’m in right now too. Maybe I’m not off the pace as much as I thought I was, that’s good. :)
