    Finally had some spare time to give this a crack tonight. So fun.

    Only had about 6 runs. Best time so far

    Would be good to see what everyone else is doing. Bit of competitiveness never hurt anyone!!

    I was a bit safe on some of the turns, but otherwise, I'm happy with my time.

    5:40.384 ...took me a few sessions/days to finally beat the diamond time by just a couple tenths (on gamepad).

    My fastest run so far 5:34.038. Think i could find about 1-2 seconds on a perfect run but this was quite good. I was always a fan of driving Group 1 and faster cars around the Nordschleife since the old times of GT4. So this challenge fits me very well and I only needed about 5 restarts to get Hamiltons time. :)

    You can watch the whole run at 18:41 min in my video! :cheers:

    Currently at a 5:51.xxx time but hopeful I’ll get the gold time eventually

    So far only had one run where I actually got to the finish (only did about 3 attempts), but with 3 spins. 6:09.
    I'm sure I can do a 5:40 if I can get through a lap without mistakes, but that might take a few (hundred) more attempts.

    I love this combo. Lap time was a 5:32,198. I did a few mistakes (around Schwalbenschwanz) but I'm very happy.

    5:38 something - less than perfect but I feel that with all of these as soon as you beat it you move on.

    5:39,xxx on my 1st and only lap (3 restarts). I find it to be by far the easiest diamond in this challenge. Lewis is really slow on Nordschleife (unlike Nürburgring GP, that bastard :lol::mad:). But I seriously doubt that this is the best he can do. He probably just couldn't be bothered to do more than 2 or 3 laps.

    EDIT:

    Also, I noticed a weird thing during the run. In the middle of the straight, I suddenly started gaining on him again quite significantly (maybe even 0.3s). His car must have had a different setup to what we have. It's the only explanation. But it kind of makes the challenge invalid in my opinion.

    Bronze here, after 3-4 tries, all with leaving the road/crashes. So if I play it more safe I will get the silver.

    I plan to get platinum on the rest tracks and leave this as the final. Sweet taste of victory it will be.

    I'll give you all a clue..... Lewis is saying to me "Nah, more practice" :lol: Some of you may not have ever heard that particular phrase.
    I love this track but just cannot get the hang of it. I've spent time golding some sections in Circuit Experience, the balance are silver, but the final lap bronze.... in the much slower car in Circuit Experience.
    In this Sauber.... I need more practice!:)

    I am close to gold time in Nordschleife until that whole rollercoaster sector after carussel with all those blind corners. My favorite sector of the whole track but also the one I need most practice on.

    Just beat Hamilton's time tonight by 0.016 after 2 hours of restarts. Took about 2 hours to get gold a few days ago aswell.

    I think I managed a 5:40.408. I was actually behind Hamilton on the last corner but I got an exceptional exit to beat the time.
