    Practice:
    19:00 GMT

    Race 1: 19:30 GMT (2 Laps) Fast Rolling Start

    Qualifying: 20:05 GMT

    You do not need to go around the entire track on an outlap. At the pit entry, instead of going left onto the Nordschleife, stay right.

    You must stay within the cones, much like the white line when you exit the pits. Begin your fast lap and have a clean pair of undies ready. Don't do this when you are on a timed lap or you will be DQd; return to the pits and go round again.

    I've done a few laps on this combo yesterday and it's bloody amazing, once you manage to get out of the box. Which can be a bit of a hassle as the car bottoms out and can get stranded like a whale in front of the pay-gates. Increasing ride height is a must, picking the left lane through the gates seemed to work best.

    I'd love to be there but it's league night for us with a Bathurst Enduro that should be equally thrilling, hopefully :).

    Sorry if you guys had issues at the start - it was set to fast rolling, so you wouldn't have needed to do a whole lap - it would have just rolled you down the start straight for a few seconds then race was on. Either way, sorry if it didn't work as it should have.

    I hope you guys managed to have a good race. I was going to take part, but due to maybe the update or just some fine tuning on the options and settings on my part I'm having real problems with the steering begin overly sensitive. The car is spinning on entry into the corners a lot of the time.

    After about my 30th pirouette (I got a 5.9 for the last one :O_o:) I decided that enough was enough and saved my sanity. :roflmao:

    Hi @Yuri

    Yeah I tried increasing it from the default (up to 24 degrees, which is what I noticed on a shared setup once) but it seemed to make things worse, but I admit by that point my patience had run out! haha. Thanks, I will try later on :thumbsup:

    24 is quite high if you're on 540 degrees. If you have that set to a value too high the car reacts really quick to small wheel movements. I normally use around 20 but it's personal preference

    Many thanks for your suggestions everyone. All really helpful :)

    Well the wheel rotation is 240 degrees. I think it's a case of getting that "feeling" right with the steering and at the moment I'm treading on tippy toes all the time. I can't attack the corner at all, which makes overtaking pretty tough.

    By way of contrast in AC I can really attack the apex and it feels great.

    Just need to experiment I think and see what works :thumbsup:
