Being successful at YouTube, at least at the start, is due mostly to pure luck. For the average channel, it usually requires something to go viral. For a channel based on GT7, the market is saturated, so there's almost zero chance of getting a decent following.

Regarding your replay, here's some thoughts. And here's a map to help with turn numbers:

View attachment 1365057

T1: On approach, your right tires should be on the curb (left tires off the track). After the turn, you should aim again to have your right tires on the curb, and left tires off the track. Use all the track (which you will hear me say a lot).
T7: On approach, keep your right tires on the curb (in this case, you probably don't want your left tires off the track), and don't start turing until the curb ends. Then turn your wheels either before, or right as you start to brake. If that causes you to turn too quickly, then brake a little later.
T9: On approach, your right tires should be on the curb and your left tires off the track.
T10: After T9, try to get your right tires should be on the curb. It's a little tricky to get them there after T9, but that's the goal.

That should get you started. Remember, generally speaking, the wider you can make the turn, the better. In other words, outside to inside to outside.
This is a great example of what this forum is about and everything Grumpy says is true.

Sorry @GrumpyOldMan i missed this earlier in the thread!

First have control of your car then start to position it how you need to.

We can talk about as forum, braking and accelerating but first you need to put your car where you want or it needs to be
 
@newmedia_dev had to try out using CSA strong, up to now I've been using just TC2, added the CSA and it helped alot, didn't reach the 1.28s but close.

Re DR, I stopped worrying about it long ago. PD gets a lot wrong - the penalty system for one - but DR works as intended by matching drivers of relatively equal pace in lobbies.

I am now a mid-B driver, sometimes higher, sometimes lower, depending on the track and week. On the occasions when I’ve dropped down to C, I have come back up to B in a few races. I am now close to A after a good week at RBR. Should I get there, I am sure I will soon be back in B until I can consistently race at the pace of A drivers.

Bottom line, just race and enjoy it. Oh, and if you’re going to worry about a rating, make sure you are SR S! It’s hell in lower SR lobbies!

That is fast! Faster than my US time.

I was the same just using TC 2 and out pacing the ghost in the first 2 hairpins but the 3rd sector I just can't go quick there :(

Amazing time, I'll beat it tomorrow at 9:50pm when I can't bloody use it 🤣

Edit: I won't that's a joke, I'm a spent force now!

And thank @Vule for the CSA tip, early in the week I didn't get on with it. Once I got my lines sorted it was the silver bullet (relative to my ambitions/capability)

Turns 6,7,8 are my nemesis, only get them correct 1 in 5 attempts. That's probably it for me, not even had any 1.28s as optimal.

Thank you @Vule for CSA strong tip.
 
So I've been racing sporadically this week at RBR. After my previous race, my SR dropped down to B.

So when I saw I was starting P9 in this last race, I decided to move to the back of the pack and just try to get a clean race.

I ended up finishing P10 because of other people's mistakes, and I got a CRB. Go figure.

Oddly enough, I only gained 27 SR points. Earlier this week I gained 40 SR points in one race. I wonder what the difference was?

This is my SR journey this week:

Pretty colors, anyway!
I'm feeling down and depressed about this situation.

LOL - sounds so simple.
 
I probably had the best race I have ever had in this game yesterday. I had such a close fight with another driver for the whole race C. We were fighting for sixth place and I lost on the last lap, but it was amazing. We had such close racing I'm amazed I got the clean race bonus after. They were faster than me but changed tyres which I didn't. I did think they would get penalty as they left the track two times on the last lap but no such luck.

Not playing this weekend as I'm watching Le Mans instead. It's a bit interesting reading the complaints here about dirty racing seeing what happens in real racing... Ridiculous punt from Kubica. Is he blind?
 
I thought Race B at the Red Bull Ring would have settled down by the weekend. It did not. I should have quit while I was ahead. I did not.

I did 10 races in the NSX Gr.3. I shaved my QT down from a 1:30.977 to a 1:30.789. My rating went from a B/S, down to a C/S, and back up to a B/S. My best start was one very rare P1, only my 7th in 201 races (worst was one P14). My best finish was one P1, only my 8th in 201 races (worst was one P16, last). I finished P10 or better 7 times, with two podiums (P1 and P2).

It seems like I had a better day than I'm letting on. I did not. I'm glad I stuck it out to finish my afternoon high note, even though the day as a whole was a chaotic wreckfest nightmare.

Yea, this is where having an alt account comes in handy. My 2nd account is almost SR B due to the getting smashed into. And, I've smashed into others but when there's a complete pileup at T3 it's impossible to avoid. So yea, SR nightmare. It's a madhouse out there!

I'm too lazy to start an alt, and I was too stubborn to quit. 😅

Thanks for the reminder. I just turned it on. Pretty cool to be racing there in the C race also.

Wow, I've never visited there before. It looks like Greece to me.

@TechnoIsLove
It's Malta 😜

Yep, that tiny spec on the map 😂😂

Improved a bit, no TC but have the CSA on weak...

Was a few tenths ahead of current PB but teeny mistakes keep me from improving.. Gonna keep trying, need to beat these meta-driving losers 😜🤪🫨

I got in to the .3s with the RCZ and got close to a high .1XX several times. Often .3 up in the first sector but then tiny little errors in the middle sector. Very annoying. I'm on TC0 and strong CSA in the RCZ.
Off to work now.. but hopefully get a chance to improve later.

Whats's your PSN? Edit/ request sent...

Have I added you yet on my friends list? I don't recall doing it. I don't see your name on my list so apparently I did not.

I had 7 rocky races at RBR this morning. I was in a mixed lobby of A, B and C drivers everytime which made it hard for me to get top 5 finishes everytime. I recorded some of them.

I don't think so - PSN is barney_da_dog
 
Yeah, I sent my father Jeff a $500 gift card for Walmart so he can buy his groceries, supplies and medicine there. He only lives 20 minutes away from one.
Well I've got limited time to grind the daily A and B races.

I decided to skip the C ones because the Le Mans course is long and complex.
 
Right 2 more races and that's me done for the weekend.

Father's Day BBQ to go to for the rest of the day

Have fun and good luck. See you all tomorrow!

Office day tomorrow so many of you will get the jump on me :)


@Talon16 i didn't realise that was you 🤣
Yep, decided to put in a qual time for the 2 account to try and build SR back up from almost B. Two races, and almost back to S! lol
