    No idea mate, but I expect so. I'm fronting up cold turkey. Qualy will be my first blush at this combo at these specs. Since I rarely run the Beetle for race Cs I don't have any idea what the fuel economy is like or tyre wear, and at 100% instead of BoP no idea what sort of speed I'll be getting. I could be banging off the rev limiter on the back strait for all I know :lol:. I just felt like running the bug cause no one else does :dopey:.

    It's a pretty quick car from what I remember. Fuel efficiency isn't great. Tyre model/physics have changed since I last drove it, so I have no idea what they tyre wear will be like.

    Just a suggestion. After the auto-drive failures (twice in a row) on the Blue moon bay 150 mile event, would it be safer to do a standing start? Or at least for the second attempt at a race start if the rolling start fails the first time?

    This is what happened at Blue moon bay and that's the second attempt at starting the race.

    Jesus, that's bad.

    Yeah, we'll try a rolling start. If it glitches, we'll restart with a grid start.

    I picked one up a few months ago, usually to berate someone who shoved me off track. :lol:

    I have gotten to SR S only a couple of times. They ride you like a bronco & in one race, banished to SR A.

    I didn't save any replays, but I can attest to his comment.

    Going to have a practice lobby open this evening, if anybody wants in. Either at 20:00, or 21:00GMT. I know that may be a little early for some of the US/Canadian guys if they're working. But, I'll hold one at the weekend, too.

    Going to open a practice room at 20:30GMT. So, an hour and half. I won't be running as El_Beardo_Grande, as I'm getting some track time on my R4M account.

    I'll put the room number up in here, once it's open.

    So, the LMP1 missiles are about 10s a lap faster than the GT3 machines. It's going to be an interesting race, guys.

    We can definitely hold them up through the final sector. As soon as they get round that right hander, though . . The speed difference is incredible.

    Yep :D . Brutal. The acceleration of the LMP1 cars is out of this world.
    My best was (RM tires, almost empty tank) 1:48.506. I'm slower than the last time, almost half a second :( .

    I don't really like Spa, mate. So nah, not changing.

    That said, keep your eyes open for a one make series with a twist, in a few weeks. That'll contain a meeting at Spa.

    Unfortunately.

    And Snetterton, Knockhill, Thruxton.

    Thruxton is a little too similar to Goodwood to warrant a place, though. Trac Môn would be perfect. But, I'm biased. I live on the same island.

    Kyalami would be nice, too.

    Ewww. Nah. I had a pair of Union Jack Doc Martens once. Worst boots I've ever wasted money on. Crap leather, no shape, terrible quality :lol:

    I just love BSB circuits. I've never actually seen car races at those circuits (apart from Snetterton.)

    Considering a sheep themed livery for this race.

    As I drive with bumper view, I won't get too distracted by a car plastered with sexy sheep :lol:
