  3. Hmm ... at least I can make it round a full lap with out crashing now, though my times have a lot of room for improvement. Lapping 18 seconds off the pace by RSR Live Timing standards :cry:

    I shall be partaking in the event. However, can't say I'll be racing, more a leisurely cruise around the track soaking in the atmosphere :cool:

    18 seonds off WR is not half bad on this track though :)

  5. Hoping to go sub 10:40.000 [consistently] by race time ... just need to find a few seconds through the second and third splits. Will be very happy if I can achieve a 10:38.000 lap :cool:

    From the first two races, I'm expecting the front runners be lapping at near WR times. With the majority of the mid pack not far behind. If true to form, I'll be with the rearguard :ninja:

    Oh, even the longest version with the Nurb. Ring GP included we'll use.. .
    First two sectors are ok, but in the third sector in some passages and corner combinations between the Hohe Acht and the long straight Döttinger Höhe I still always lose time. Almost a miracle how some can go ~10 seconds faster there in the third sector.

    If you guys are interested, we can blast around Nords tomorrow after the GT3 race for a bit. I can probably help you guys with the approach to a few corners.

    AWESOME! Thanks Tobias :D I'm probably going to be struggling for some time behind the wheel prior to the race so a decent setup is perfect! Thank you man :)

    I have a checksum in the server, maybe because Assetto just release an update today?

    Oh and i just used your setup tobias he is awesome, I don't win time but it's very very more safe than the baseline so i will be able to push more and beat my time :)

    Oh, so the update screwed with either the car or track. Will fix by the end of the day.

    Nords is probably the track I hate the most :)
    Managed to go as low as 11:10.281 and was pretty pleased with my performance until I saw the time. I'm going to have a bad time on Sunday...
    It's all about getting too cautious on too many corners (most of them tbh) since I don't know the track well enough to be able to push.
    So it sounds like I'll have a hotlap style race where everyone will disappear quickly on the first lap and may reappear later on with blue flags towards the end of the race. Hope that won't be the case :)

    Think positive. You get your least favourite track out of the way in the first race :p But in all seriousness, after putting in some practice on Nords, you'll be surprised how rewarding it is to just be able to lap it like any other circuit.

    Aye, it can only get better after this race :)

    Agree with the practice. I'm still discovering where I can go flat out so I'm definitely losing plenty of time on that alone. Sub 11 minutes is definitely within reach, by shaving 0.2 seconds per corner alone reduces overall laptime by some serious seconds on Nords. I doubt I'll be competitive, but I'll do my best :)

    I'm not giving up :)
