    Where the information to take?
    Start race in Div2 will be from a place, or for safety car?

    Division 2 will most likely have a rolling start again. considering what T1 is like I think this will be wise.

    Sorry for my absence guys, these are very busy times (it's the time for all financial papers to be handed in to the government).

    As there have only been dry races at Istanbul so far (I think) in combination with my absence we'll do a certain dry race this time, just normal default stuff.

    As for the safety car start vs. normal start, I was first thinking we should go for normal, but the fact that several have said that they wish to do this at Istanbul as well, in combination with the bumpy t1 I am not quite sure atm.

    Could somebody help me out and post a thread with a poll a la the one I did last time where all participants can discuss this, and then we try to reach a decition by the end of the weekend?

    I'm not expecting any rain, but personally I think T1 more than makes up for that. :)

    rain will be falling in 5 minutes. No, 15 minutes. No wait, 8 minutes. Okay scratch that, we have a 100% likelyhood of clouds.

    People - What mark do you look for when you start braking in to T1?
    Is there a distance marker somewhere in the neighbourhood?

    Call me weird :D. I had that problem also last year when we drove for there for the first time.
    You know what i did. I enabled the ingame corners markers. I braked 1 second later then i showed up. Worked fine for me. :)

    thats exactly what i do too, i wait till the marker comes up, and a split second later i brake, i coast in and power on early, you can keep the car quite stable this way.

    Thanks:)
    I didn’t know that I could enable corner markers, always thought they came with the track. You learn as long as you live, but my learning curve is just gently sloping.

    First I must get my five senses to work, before I'm considering developing a sixth:wink:
