    thats is when practice "officially" begins. YOu should work off the 'Qualification time" for when we go into real race mode as the server is usually open hours before the event actually kicks off.

    so that would be 6:00 PM for you......

    Here is an update of DATA from a tire test at Sebring tonight.

    at 2x wear rate the following DATA was retrieved.

    all rates are per lap based on a 2:11.4xx lap time at race speed and fuel load of 50L.

    LF = -4.75% RF = 3.6%


    LR = 2.9% RR = 2.77%

    expected race distance will be 12 laps maximum based on lap time above without a pit stop or a slower first lap from a standing start.

    so your wear table will look like this if you pit on Lap 6 and take front tires only. remaining tire % after completing 12 laps of the race. 6 laps on the front and 12 laps on the rear.

    LF = 71.5% RF = 78.4%


    LR = 65.5% RR = 66.75%

    think about what you want to do on your pitstop...............
