    To keep things ticking over while we wait for the start of the season here’s a little competition to get the ol’ juices flowing and add a bit of fun that all can take part in regardless of platform.

    Week 1 – Sunday, 20th February, 00:00 until Sunday, 26th February 23:59 (UK time)
    Car – Haas (this will change for each week)
    [​IMG]
    Track – Red Bull Ring Austria
    [​IMG]
    No Assists
    Points – Everyone scores here with 2 points for the bottom driver and increasing by 2 for each position above. Something for everyone to play for with competition throughout the field regardless of pace.
    Submit your time in the following format - Username\Time and include a screenshot of the screen when you exit the session to validate the time.


    You can post your progress, thoughts, replays, etc. here and post as many updates of your lap time as you want but I will only take your last entry as your final time.

    I will update the tables each Monday where possible.

    This is just for some fun so please feel free to make suggestions as to how we could improve it.

    I'd love to do this, but so much else is going on. If the trials match the season races we run, I'll certainly take a second look.

    They will once the season starts.. I'll be posting a time here starting Monday. That's a good benchmark from Mitch in this car though.

    You are the man so far Mitch.

    I got a 1:10.925 by driving this thing way too long. Potential was a 1:10.6, but that was not happening. The key for me was the exit off the first corner.

    Love the fact that we are all close. I expect Peter and Eric to come is as good or slightly better. This will make some good racing.

    I am struggling for time at the moment but will try to get something down over the next couple of days and start thinking about the next one as well.

    It's a shame there is no take-up from outside our little group, I hoped it might drag in a few others on other formats to spice it up further.

    That's a big jump. I don't know if I coukd find half a second. If I can it'll have to be in the final sector I think....I feel like I haven't got it right once.

    Mine was all in the last sector, I was a couple of tenths down the rest of the lap so there's definitely more there. But that's a perfect lap for me, so I'll never get those extra tenths lol
