    Any stewards available to qualify me? I'm looking to qualify the LMP car, and I should be available for the next five hours.

    Aside from qualifying, here's a few of my strategies for the race, assuming I end up in the LMP class:

    1. My gearbox is set to a maximum speed of 251 mph (404 km/h). I tested in a one-make race to ensure that I do not hit the limiter when drafting.
    2. TCS and ABS will be set to 1. I've practised quite a bit with TCS off, but the car is much too unstable for endurance driving.
    3. I plan to stop three times. While stopping just twice might be possible, the risk of running out of fuel is too great, plus the tyres would be in very bad shape at the end of each stint.

    Everyone is. PSN is still under maintenance for 3 more hours. Sony decided to tackle the entire network with various software/hardware upgrades all at once.

    Assuming it's possible with the maintenance, is anyone else around for a Q run tonight? (Inside the next two hours)

    EDIT: Guess not. I'll be on tomorrow. Sleep time!

    Changed my primary racecraft to GT class. I haven't driven one mile in the LMP and won't get a chance to until tomorrow at the earliest so best to go with the GT.

    Dropped out of LMP class as secondary. Can't really stay in control for more than a couple of laps in a row, can't imagine what 2.4 hours would be like!

    I am going to be on-line practising tonight! The full practice race will be way to late for me. I will be in the lounge in about 1.5 hours from now!

    Cool. I'd like to quickly quali for LMP today (not expecting much, just want it done). Can't get the TV yet, though.

    We had a small croweded but splendid race (in my case). Apart from occasionally going a little bit wide, I did not make any mistakes and was very consistant. My pitstop strategy worked out fine, just like calculated afther last full practise negative and disasterous outcome. Very happy now with my pace, strategy. Bring it on, I would say.

    But just for now, :) would there be a steward that has 15min to watch my quali ? I am already in the lounge, just hop on in.
