    Ok, these are my times (without wall/grass contact) - how far off am I from the rest of the group? 5 seconds? 10 seconds? more?

    Round 1 –Circuit de Saint-Croix A
    Best time is 2:48.004

    Round 2 – Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit
    Best time is 1:52.990

    Round 3 –Alsace Village II
    Best time is 1:45.150

    Round 4 –Sardegna Road Track A
    Best time is 1:33.803

    Round 5 –Circuit de Saint-Croix C II
    Best time is 3:09.561

    I know there is time to practice for improvement (especially since FIA events don't take up much of my practice time lately). I was just curious how far off I am (or to put it in the words of a A+ driver's comments last week - how much in the way I am of my fellow drivers).

    Thanks - have fun racing.

    You won't experience this kind of comment here Timm. I'm certainly looking forward to the close racing a reverse grid will throw up, as I'm sure everyone else who has signed up is too :tup:

    Your times look good at a quick glance, I'll post my "circuit selection practice laps" later on for reference but I plan to run a few lobbies throughout the month. Feel free to organize your own too (settings in the OP) :cheers:.

    The last endurance set of races I ran with you all was awesome, never experienced anything negative. I think the guy was having a bad series of races and I happened to be the last one who "screwed up" his race (I didn't honor the blue flag quick enough for him). Water off a ducks back to me,

    If you miss the turn as you come down off the mountain at Mount Panorama and make it into the field (before the sand) is a nice grouping of yellow flowers. I almost ran them over a few times.

    I would try some laps but can't get out the pitlane in a unpainted car. How does it feel coming down the mountain at Mt Panorama (the back was quite sensitive at Laguna Seca)? That A+ driver obviously isn't very good if he/she is worrying about the pace of somebody with 50K less DR...

    @Kermit_2142 @Chillgamer190 I'm not sure if you've looked at this since last season ended, would it be better to have the safety car wait close to pit exit for the leader to close the pack up quicker, last season there were a few times where we restarted with cars not back on the pack (these cars are so much faster it's probably a none-issue tbh).
