    Drivers Pre-Race
    Post

    Good evening Drivers,
    Race Night for Event #4 at Lago Maggiore GP is almost here. Hope everyone is looking forward to racing. This track has always afforded some great racing and I expect tomorrow night to be no different.

    As of this post, we have 16 drivers confirmed and planning to attend...a great turn out is expected. Any additional drivers that have not confirmed your availability to race tomorrow night if needed or reported your absence, please do so before 5pm est to establish your priority and/or maintain active status. Drivers are tagged below in order of grid priority. Any additional drivers confirmed to be available must wait until 9:15pm est for a chance to race if a spot opens up. Overfill drivers must be online (psn/ingame), and will be invited to the raceroom with the number of spots open via psn message at 9:15pm. First drivers to enter the room and fill the vacant spots secure their grid status.

    Grid list- (confirmed and guaranteed a spot up to 9:15pm est)

    While Lago Maggiore GP does present some great racing, it's combination of tight flat corners, banked and off camber corners, and high speed S's presents plenty of challenges, especially with these Raging Bulls. Get those tunes set and the gearing right, and get some practice laps in. I found it took quite a build up in laps to get to the pace.
    As a reminder for all drivers, these Lamborghinis do not like to be overdriven, and at this track that mental note of smooth will be necessary.

    Good luck to everyone, and see you all on the grid.

    My fastest in PRO was a 1:54.2 and was on track for a hi 53 until I over did it. I expect with draft help mid 1:53's will be all of it for PRO Class, and I'd expect hi 1:54's-1:56 should be good pace for PRO AM.

    @Moby45 same here. Probably wont be able to run any laps before race time either. Will use qualifying to get familiar and race 1 to lock in pace. Race 2 I can go then.

    Nova has me down as ‘pro’ (air quotes) and the very best I could do was 1:56.2 after many laps.
    I have some advice for those who have trouble with this beast: Make sure your tune doesn’t wear the rear tires quicker than the fronts. I had this problem and it gets really ugly in just 5 laps (after new tires).

    As much as I have a commitment to run in the series, I unfortunately have to withdraw my entry from the series from incircumstanced reasons.

    Brake early and straight. Best advice I can give you. The lambo does not like trail braking here

    Are we still going off time, or are we going by lap count for race length?
