    Thanks man, I hope you’re able to make it out at least a few times. There are no week to week standings or ranking with these races, we will just be racing for fun(pride? :lol: ) so never feel as though you can jump in, I’m sure you will adjust very quickly, just remember to wave as you go by! :D

    I also run races on Friday nights that mimic the Sport Mode Daily races were we also just race for fun, it’s always very clean and friendly racing, you’re more than welcome to join us any time, it would be a great way to get aquatinted with online racing, just like these races will be. There’s nothing to lose by having an off night or a bad combo, only fun can be lost by not coming out! :cheers:

    WooHoo! Welcome aboard man! :cheers:

    The main strategy for this race will be to pit on the end of laps 8 and 16, that’s about as long as the fuel lasts going full bore. Tires might need one change at some point depending on how hard you are on them. :)

    Done and Done! :D

    Not liking the daily races this week I did a test run against the AI. The SRT Tomahawk is pretty fast against the R18 '11.

    I went flat out first, emptied the tank in lap 7, went a bit easier to pit again in lap 15, then fuel saved to make the 24 laps and pass the Tomahawk in the last lap. Braking points are slightly earlier than in Gr.3 last week. My best lap was 2:03 which was in the last stint while stretching fuel out. An even 8-8-8 should get better lap times. The AI was in the way in the first full power stint and I was still fine tuning the braking points.

    Car ready, gonna be fun.

    Nice livery Sir! :cheers:

    This car is fastest when shifted at around 50% of the shift bar or slightly less, so you should be able to get 8 laps going flat out if your shifting at 50% or less. I’ll be curious to see what kind of strategies people use for the race, multiple strategies are definitely in play. :)

    Here's your race :D and I'm confident I can actually stay on the circuit in a Gr.1 car with these settings, just did about half an hour. :cheers:

    As long as you can make it before race start you’re all good, Q will take 3 laps to complete so that’s gives you almost a 10 minute window past 9pm to make it! :D

    Or shift all the clocks in your house ahead by 15 min! :lol:

    @Sven Jurgens That was an incredible race man!! We were within 1.5s or less for 3/4 of the race!! It doesn’t get any better than that, I’d gain on you in places and then you’d pull away in others, had we both been on the same tire strategy I think it would have been a very close finish. Great race man, that was an absolute blast!! :cheers: :D

    @Pigems Great race! I think we both were on the same tire strategy. I changed tires in lap 8, then didn't in lap 16. It's just controller vs wheel with tire wear, 9 out of 10 times controller loses. My lap times were dropping off dramatically already so after penalizing myself for going wide at Raidillon I couldn't catch up anymore, the gap was growing steadily. I stopped for new tires only in lap 20 or 21 then made up some time while you were struggling with your tires I think but that was far too late.

    Lesson learned for next time, always change tires for me! Fun race!

    Btw why did my car say (Le mans) in the description. Did I have the wrong one or some special livery I painted over :lol:

    The (Le Mans) version is identical except for the livery as far as I can tell, performance specs are the same but I didn't check gearing and suspension. It was probably a prize on the wheel of (mis)fortune, I have one from there. I bought a "standard" one to do a livery on. Only the standard one is available in brand central I think.

    Edit: Checked car settings, identical suspension and gearing too. It looks like you painted over a limited edition livery :crazy: :lol:

    I had a blast despite losing more than two seconds a lap to the next slowest place for most of the race. Managed the full 24 laps with no spins and only a few minor track limit excursions, that's an extraordinary performance for me in Gr.1 cars. That Audi is so easy to drive compared to most of that class.
