To be honest, I haven't had the time to do this combo justice. And won't have till tomorrow night or monday.

Action packed weekend! (yeah I wish! :sly: )

My hands hurt. Been on this a couple of hours today, and STILL haven't broken 50 seconds on the first split! On the other hand, I'm in the 1:16's at the second, so that section is coming along. I'm having trouble finding reference points on this track, so I'm not consistent at all. And to be honest, in some of the series races I've played, Valencia is the last track, and I had already clinched the points lead, so I'd skip it. :grumpy: Haven't spent much time on this track.

Edit: Couple hours later, 30 minutes of practice. My ghost lap is now at 49.8 and 1:15.9, and the final sector is good enough that the several times I've been ahead of the splits, I've lost at the line to the ghost. I must have really nailed the right-hand turn before the long sweeper! I've had a 1:15.4-something at the second split and lost to the ghost by 2 or 3 lengths!

Tomorrow is the US GP, the British MotoGP, and in the US we have both MotoGP and 250s on tomorrow, unlike many weekends where we have to wait till tuesday to see the "minor" races. Don't know how much practice time I'll get.

Thanks! That was my first 1:13 in that sector, all others right at the low 1:14's, i was shocked when I saw that sector time myself :)

Hey Ice, just a general question about the weekly race. Would it be able to post replays of the top times after each qualifier/race? (with consent of the owner of course). After looking at the times people are posting I see now that I've still got a lot to learn.

After each race a results thread is posted where replays of the race can be uploaded. The replays for the qualifier have to be withheld but all races from now on will allow replay posting (provided the race results are posted of course).

I feel your pain, it looked so similar I thought we just carried over the same bike from qualifying, they look really close.
