31.6 with the Peugeot.

31.6 for me too Leo but 32s are normal.

Silverstone is the home race of 7 drivers so I'm expecting big things from them in front of their home crowd!

I think I'm in tonight, though if my spot gets taken by someone 100% sure then that is fine. I should know a few hours before race time....and I'll let everyone know a minimum of 1 hr before race. In the meantime, if anyone has a tune for the Puegot they'd want to share with someone who drives a bit like James May, let me know ;-)

EDIT - @reefer I am good to go for tonight. The race starts in approximately 1 hr and 20 mins? I think I have my math right

Good fun tonight (or this morning for some of you). I'm not fast but I enjoyed it. A couple accidents in the first race put me firmly in last(my own accidents involving just me). For me the second race was more enjoyable since I enjoy that track. 1/100th of a second between dave and I, and two seconds ahead of us were @fadmad and @tooma with only 6/100ths between them if I'm reading it correctly. I may have performed better but around the midpoint I caught a tire on the sweeper right before the tight hairpin and went completely off, losing 2-3 places and in dead last again by about 4-6 seconds. Anyway, thanks @reefer for letting me race. Hoping to do it again soon!

Well, I found some consistency and hung on. I was worried you lot were going to trounce me! Joe @reefer, you're just too darn quick in that RS2. I geared first for emergency track work and hence it bogged off the line and I got swallowed. Luckily for me there was some contact and 'good gentlemanly driving' which I sneaked through the middle of. I made a big suite of errors through Becketts etc one lap, but generally kept my nose clean the rest of the race, with the occasional 'too much apex' going on. From the replay, CrazyJohn and Colin had a proper ding-dong most of the way. :D

I like the 205 and SSR5, so once I was safely around Joe and realised no-one was really catching, I felt pretty comfortable.

My settings for the 205, bearing in mind I'm on DS3:

80/77
4.50/6.00
10/10//10/10
5/7
0.0/0.0
0.00/0.00
Brakes 8/6

Trans fully set:
3.000/2.000/1.500/1.200/0.986 on a 3.556 FDR

Diffs
10/20
5/10
20/60
Stock Centre Diff

Power 284hp/42.2kgfm from Sport Computer, Race exhaust, Intake tuning and mid-range turbo. Possibly an oil change, I dunno.
Change at 7,000rpm (no point going higher.)

Fully lightened, 45kg ballast at -50 for 1094kg & 48:52 split.

Another good fun tonight. I was able to get a couple of spots on R1 at the start, but they were slowly getting back on me after each lap, at least i had fun trying to keep it in place with SM. On R2 i had a quick run to 4th place , but then @buybon355 and @richroo gave me such a hard time to find some space and make the pass, great driving guys!

Looks like it's SM for me again with the MR2 (i think). I like both cars and tracks, but i think i will not be very fast with the Civic.

Also, was having this one after the race:

_____________________________________________________

Man of the Meet: Venari takes the honours this week. For a while I'd almost thought you'd lost it but 2 solid races today puts you firmly back on the map where you belong. Some great battles out there boys, good to see you all trying so hard giving it 110%. For me race 1 went to plan although I was off my practice pace. In practice after 10 laps I could still do a 2:10xx but fell into the 11s about lap 7 or so. At the start I was concerned with building a 2 second gap early, especially to Al and John, as I knew if they got a sniff of taking me into a corner they'd jump at it. But as luck would have it I got away. Race 2 and it was my turn to go on the SM tyres as I was leading the 'ship. It was always going to be tricky for me on SMs as I wasn't even comfortable on SS. (I have only been on SSR5 a couple of times.) I knew I couldn't squabble with the fast guys so let them go to fight it out for themselves. I had no idea who was in the lead or who had won until the end as my screen didn't show the top 2 places. I actually thought Leo had won so was a bit surprised to see it was Venari. Back to your old self I see V! I had a great ding-dong with Suts which was good fun. I really thought you'd have pulled away Suts but remembered you saying it was a throw-a-way tune you were using. So I got on it and tried to keep you keen. I wouldn't have got by you though if you hadn't made a mistake. Good fun as usual. My, aren't we blasting through the 80s:lol:

Tom Ascar, apologies for the lyrics in the soundtrack of the video. I like the song but the lyrics aren't suitable as a racing soundtrack.

On Silverstone I crashed 3 times damm Ford one in Q in race at first corner and lap 2 hopefully I was able to get back a bit and had good fun with @Sutsagrd with the RS200 practice and race is two different things
Race in the Peugeot was better
As usual fun weekend on track thank you all :cheers::cheers:

Hi fiends. Strange weekend. I did a very good start in Silverstone but I couldn´t found my rhythm. On the week I was regulary doing 2.11.5xx and my best was 2.10.895 but I couldn´t repeat my times on Saturday race. However I enjoyed during the first race and I had lots of good battles with buybon255, rich and Fad .Nice.
In the second I had a very bad start. I forget change my 1st gear. On the first lap I forget Joe was wearing sm tyres and I couldn´t evoid him and then crashed with Fadmad, sorry mate.Then I had to make a big comeback but it was too late to take the leaders.
Good week mates.:gtpflag:

I wonder if Jammy will get into the 27s at AH this coming weekend? I'm at 28.3. What kinda times are you getting in the sm tyres Leo? And out of curiosity, what are you doing in the ss tyres? Anyone else with a time to chase at either track?

Got 1:17.3 at mid (after everyone left lol) still need to look at setup think i've used this car for something else so ran with that !
Hope i can find another sec to keep joe on his toes .....

Richy, I need you to have a good race at AH. Al too.

Leo, richy, Al (and myself): please practice on the sports mediums in the Mugen Motul at Midfield. Everyone else is safe from that tyre change for race 2:cheers:

Leo on sports mediums for race 1 at AH so please take that into consideration when around him.

For the very last race at Fuji – week 5 in the calendar, which is a 30 min race – I'm thinking of an all sports-softs shootout and tyre wear Fast or Very Fast, TBC.

I LOVE the idea of tire wear set high. It adds the whole extra dimension of when to pit, how fast you can go with tires worn, etc. Strategy is fun:cool::gtpflag:
Oh, @reefer, I won't be around tomorrow for sure. Unless, of course, my vehicle breaks down or something like that:eek:

This morning I bought the Logitech G29 steering wheel and in the afternoon I went to return it to the store. Sucks!!! Makes a lot of noise and I do not know if my unit would be in poor condition, because it was almost impossible to keep the car straight on the straights. Nor can roulettes be programmed. It was also necessary to make a lot of force to turn the steering wheel.The brake pedal is very hard and the pedal clutch is too close to the brake pedal. So since I was not convinced I returned it to the store. It costs too much money for what it's worth.Tomorrow I will go to a friend's house to try out your steering wheel, Thruthmaster T150 and if I like it I'll buy it´.
