    Thanks. That would help. I did a couple of 30 laps sessions where I had the car consistently doing 1:03 with plenty of fun counter steering. I could see how I could get a 1:02.5 but not 2 seconds less. I need to try a bit more trail braking.

    I had too much time on my hands last night/this morning as I couldn't sleep last night after being woken up by the kids. I'm not ranting just trying to be fair to everyone Rhino :)

    I know some of you guys have raced a lot around the track together. If anyone is around between 10am and 1pm this morning maybe I could follow someone round?

    Also to add, for the next race, as a suggestion. How about the 8 that race are all decoded by a time trial on the track and car they choose. It will gove everyone somthing to do
    And also we will garrentee our fastest 8 will be in.

    At the moment @ty2 , @DropBuckets and @Nick 4 P1 are the fastest 2 CRAPpers to go through to the race next Saturday the 19th! :) @Spooky Wooky has already confirmed he won't take part, and @Carnby7 is still an unknown quantity, we need to race him, and visa virsa, for him to becoma a full time CRAPper! If he races with us regulally from now on, he can qualify for Aprils's race, no problem!

    Are you saying i'm not a fast CRAPper @ty2 ??..........................:mad::mischievous::rolleyes:

    Haha just kidding, good idea, if that's what people want to do, a free for all so all 8 drivers have to qualify for each months race, no problem!

    But yes guys, just had a thought, this is what i hate about modern racing circuits, in that these "run off" areas are created in the first place for no appearent reason, even on older tracks like Oulton Park.........20 years ago and all tracks had grass/gravel on the other side of the kerbs. These run offs cause so many grey areas, in real life and in video games, if they weren't there, there would be no doubts...Just a thought.

    I think that's a very good idea. I've managed a 1:02.678

    Getting better. Thanks for the tips to my secret coach.

    Yes that's true. But we can't blame the tracks putting them in for safety reasons. In theory the extra "chequered" brick and grass areas give some grip in areas where it was just grass before. With walls close to the track they should reduce the chance of a bad accident. I think maybe I overreacted as regards the lap as there were so many offs. Using the game to decide is good. It is quite difficult for a game to get penalties spot on. Most tracks the game gets time trial invalidations right. It's certainly keen when cutting the track but programming going wide Penalties is more difficult as most tracks and corners going wide does mean the lap takes longer. With those areas, going wide can give quicker times. I wasn't pointing the finger Hammy but you do probably need to come to an agreement with NXTGEN over what's the right way to do it.

    A little bit faster, but after recalabrating my wheel (Haven't done it for months lol) I can no now do laps much more consistantly in the 1:01s...... Feeling more confident now for the race.:tup:

    It's not an error. SMS were given a limit of a certain amount of data tables in the game based on the huge amount of track and car combinations. They debated it for ages and that was the best way they could cut it for consoles. On PC only they have best times per car per track. Blame Sony.

    However if you want to keep your own personal best times make sure you always use pCARS Dash when the game is on. It records ALL best times per car, per track. You can then expert that data to the clipboard and paste it into a spreadsheet. Be aware though that it is all driving modes so would include in races and practice modes where you have the potential of extra speed from getting a draft and less invalidated laps than in time trial mode. It's great though. I've got a spreadsheet going since CJ implemented that feature. I'll see if I can post a link.

    I'm not sure if this will work. You might need a Google drive account or I might need to share it from my PC. Try opening it in a browser.

    @HammyMansell You're going to have to send me a friend request for me to see you. I'm afraid you might have not sent one thinking you did or sent it to the wrong person. Make sure you spell it as I have it viewed on my profile. (All my Profiles on the internet {Except Steam and Skype} use the same ID tag, so you'll know who it is when you see it)

    Sorry I thought you were using the time trial results results. I was a 1:02.678 in the end. It's a few posts up. It's not important as I can't race and didnt qualify anyway :). However, it puts me slightly higher up. I thoroughly enjoyed the time trial though. Thanks Hammy. Good luck to everyone in the race.

    For me, it's great fun just having a bit of fun competition between us when I can't regularly get on at the same time as some of you.

    For this month JSB i am still using the system of having the times posted here in this thread to count, but from next month i'll use the TT times screen for reference as for sure it's easier.

    Yes it's been great, we should be very competitive and sharp for this race with all the practice that's been done, we should do well again!!

    Let's go CRAPpers!! :gtpflag::gtpflag::gtpflag:

    Edit: @JohnScoonsBeard lol sorry mate i didn't update your time, now done so! ;)

    I enjoyed participating in this time trial, and whilst I wouldn't have qualified, I did manage a 1.02.118 I think! Good luck for the race.

    1:22:215 is my first offering.

    One of my favourite cars and favourite tracks. Don't think I'm going to be quick enough though.

    CRAP Stig just had a quick go on controller. He is much slower just so no-one feels intimidated ;)

    1:25.xxx

    Won't be busting the wheel out until the decorating is done :(
