    Yes! The last section through Indianapolis, Arnage all the way through Porsche curves (What's in the name), Corvette curves and the Ford chicanes, I need to nail them perfectly. I know the 911 has the upper hand through that section. If I can get towed along on the Mulsanne straights that would be very nice.

    I like them loose and wild, like I like my women! :p

    Daily race A with the 356 Carrera?

    I remember driving it on St. Croix C for a secret project. That little bugger is tricky to drive, but at the same time, it is so much fun to drive. I can't wait to set some times with it and for the other races later today. :D

    Yes the maclaren F1 got nerfed (which is good) and lost a bit less than 10km/h in solo top speed in the first part of the hunaudières.

    I don't know in which update though, I had not driven the car for a while, I just tried it again last week after I said it would be an OP car for Le Mans.
    After a bit of testing, it seems the BoP is a bit better than before.

    The BoP topspeed numbers do not seem to fit so well the fastest car on le Mans outside of the top 3. I hope this week will be clean because it's my hometown and favorite track

    nice overtake under yellow flag...

    Got the Porsche down to a 59.1, I don’t have the patience to push this car any farther right now. BB was at +2 even though logic should dictate it to be at -2/-3 with this car to keep the tail in check. The only way to drive this car with any pace is to constantly balance it during braking/cornering with the throttle and brake at the same time, let off to much and she oversteers, but to much throttle though and it understeers, gotta fund that happy medium to keep it pointing the right direction. Off to Race B now. :)

    Aren't the 2 cars really similar in terms of performance ?

    The 356 was fun. Lightning start got me up the front and staying in 3rd gear at T3 gave me the acceleration to grab 2nd.

    You guys can have A, I'll try B, but gimme C. Havin fun so far, a lot of quitters, but I can finally keep it on track for most of the 13 laps. Was up to 2nd for a stint before finishing 4th. I let anyone close go, I know I brake wrong and hold fast people up. Stupid rain means race day, at least until golf league later.

    Race B was a jam on the first two races on the day. Its a pity i won't be competitive on the NSX or the 4C. I prefer handling cars, but I decided to finally try the F1 and its an okay car. super stable and accels above 200Km/h like its nothing. so far only the Pegeuot Vision raced side by side the whole stright after mulsanne until Indianapolis. But the Pug is harder to control on the lower speed corners, since its spins the wheels pretty easily.

    Other than that, its R8's and Mustangs, specially the mustangs that had an advantage.

    Gonna try the GT-R after work

    Hmm I want to drive lots of different cars on Sarthe, means I have to make lots of liveries thanks to @Invisigoth. It will be a while until I'm on the track. SR.B is waiting for me though lol. At least the SF19 is fun to drive to regain SR on race C. Slow corners, fast car, wonder how that's going to go.

    I could not find the F-Type, turns out both the GR.3 and GR.4 version are gone. I wonder what happened as I'm sure I had them. Bought them again.

    AMG has awesome acceleration. I glanced when I was behind the F1 and it was still acceleration from 286km/h. Trying the Aston next. Still like the M6 though. Big limo of a car.

    Yup, limits at La Sarthe have been tightened, this should make for some interesting races this week. :)

    Can confirm it. Can still put some wheels on the green spot in t1 or last but going all 4 will get you .500 penalty.
    Also right before the end, even going slightly off line will get you penalty

    PD do a great disservice to vintage cars like the 356 when they force you onto the same Sports Hard tyres that are used for mid-2000s sports car races. Way too much grip.

    For comparison, 1950s sports cars with less than half of the weight of the 356 were recorded with slower lap times on a faster layout of Brands Hatch Indy than what you can achieve on race A.

    Disappointing.

    I’ve got La Sarthe down to a 3:57.9 so far, TCS 2 and BB 0 in the McLaren GTR. This car is a friggen rocket ship!! If only it had a little more downforce it would be unbeatable. :)



    Time to turn off the TCS now and see what this thing can really do! :D

    Race B and C look great this week. I think I’m going to get warmed up on my eu account before racing on my main account so I don’t destroy my ratings lol.

    This is going to be my favourite week in a really long time. I'm not even too bothered about making places here. I just love the tour around Le Mans. Probably in the Aston for nostalgia purposes.

    Anyone been/still go down? We used to camp at Mulsanne back in the day. Haven't been there for about 10 years though. Need to change that. The heart longs for what the heart longs, right?!

    PD nice consistency on track limit penalty ? LeMans get a penalty at the end of a 3min lap before those last chicanes just going little wide lolll at RBR they go 30ft off track and no penalty ? :confused:

    you bet! i'll be setting off exactly 1 month today... Thursday drive down to Rouen for a night on the town then Friday morning pitch up at Le Mans and set the tent up and get involved. Can't wait!
    Last year Toyota had a full VR cockpit set up with GT Sport and you could do a lap of NBR GP in a Gr4 car, but they wouldn't let you change any settings or anything - would have been great to do a lap of Sarthe in a Gr1 but then i suppose the queue would have been a mile long while you wait for the bloke with 10 pints inside him try to get round the track :cheers:

    Here's a few pics from my seat in the stand to whet your appetite :lol:

    I used to live in the city so I was going there by bike with my dad every year to look at the cars in the parking. It was easier on the ears, way cheaper and less crowded than going to the race. Brits always come in mass, and they are funny. I remember riding though the camp of the catheram club in the main parking (between the plane field and the track), these guy had brought inflatable swimming pools and were sitting in their pool drinking beers and listening to the race on the radio :)
    all these Brits were always nice and they let me sit in their cars, my dad has pictures of me pretending to drive probably hundreds different sport cars.

    Can't wait to do this race B

    Not a bad first race, got spun out once and ended with a white S. I had two more places at the end but I took to much chicane and got a penalty in the final turn. Oh well, Good race by @Voodoovaj up front though, well done! :)

    I haven't gone through most of the recent replies (I'm still amazed how active this thread is) but the Race A Porsche is tricky to drive optimally since she's very prone to oversteer. Without CSA (which I'm glad of, for the record), it's definitely a bit more challenging.

    I've been adjusting BB from +1 to +3. I think I like +2 more. My time is down to 0:59.3 although I don't know if I can squeeze any more out of it unless the stars align and I somehow hit 58s.

    Is the SLS quicker than the AMG GT3 around here?

    Race B seems to be a bit of an SR killer...I may have to roll around at the back of race C for awhile :)
