Thanks to @PTLobo2 and @Raptor013 for the great race and hosting. Awesome time, my hands are killing me and I think my knees have seized up.
That was a wild fun time, loads of fun. And a real test of endurance and focus. Now to fix the bizarre track limit penalties there.
Have fun at the Nord in 3 weeks. I cant make 3 laps of it in the daytime, not even attempting 19 at night.
Great fun, good racing
Yeah I got disconnected, but it didn't matter because my race was nothing to write home about.
I could only stretch the fuel for 7 laps so I had no hope of catching up with the guys in front, and early in my third stint I spun and hit the wall which messed up my front aero and suspension so I was losing 10 seconds per lap but if I had pitted not even halfway through the stint that would've been the end of the race. So I did my best to limp my way through the stint and save as much fuel as possible hoping to shorten my next pitstop.
Pitted after lap 21 as planned, this was my first time changing tyres too. I could have stretched them another stint but I was planning on pushing harder now to make up time so I wanted fresh ones. Managed to fumble my wheel during refuelling which cancelled the refuelling so I only had enough for one more lap... Pit again after lap 22 to refuel! Only managed half a lap after that before disconnecting.
I hope Nurb is going to be better for fuel!
I did this same thing on my first stop! I bumped my controller while picking up my coffee and clicked the do not refuel button. Luckily had enough to go the full lap all out, but not what I wanted to do to set the tone.Managed to fumble my wheel during refuelling which cancelled the refuelling so I only had enough for one more lap...
I dont know how you did all that. I did the Le Mans lobby. About 10 laps practice for Tsukuba and the race. You are crazy for all that. Hope FIA went well.@Kuraudo Thanks for the comments on the pics. Those are just from the opening 8 laps. I would have gone through the whole race, but for some reason when I wanted to skip ahead the game would crash. And there was no way I was going to re-watch the entire 2 hours 48 minutes for picture taking.
@Redneckchef just an update on that distance driven. Just completed tonights FIA race and have now clocked up 805km for the day. Needless to say, from a driving point of view, I'm shattered.
Thank you .That is correct. I may change the fuel to x1 in the meantime though.
Thank you for the advice . Sometimes I'm trying too hard and... crash. I have to be more relaxed.@Kuraudo you were fine at Le Mans. The best advise when in the slower class is to hold your line and be predictable when the faster guys catch up to put a lap on you. It's up to the overtaking car to make the pass cleanly and the faster class should be patient when lapping the slower class in the more technical areas.

I switched to bumber cam - for the mirror. It's strange after x months of hood cam (we need mirror there too ), but maybe will help to let go the GR.3 cars easier .
