    Turns 16 & 17 (Casino Triangle)
    This section is easy to cut as the SuperV8 rides the curbs very smoothly. Please ensure that you are not attacking the curbs to the point that you cut the track. Below is an example of acceptable car placement.

    @Chris Stacey just a heads up. The GMT times are likely to confuse some people as in the UK and probably some other parts of Europe we got to daylight saving tomorrow. Meaning all times in the UK are an hour forward of GMT.

    Might be worth people checking their own DST dates and times to get ahead of it and warning that the DST times will affect what time people expect to be turning up in the opening post.

    Ah thanks for the heads up mate, I'm not aware of the European DST stuff, so I'll get that sorted :)

    This track will be massive on tire wear, the car goes light at some inopportune moments :*(

    I'm scared with this track.

    We can't go flat out on the 130R. This will be different.

    Man, i hate those modern tracks with those large curbs and runoff arreas. Dont cut here, dont cut there... last race in montreal i was more concerned of not cutting the track accidentally than of making an actual mistake.

    Totaly agree, I was going so slow through the last cicain at Montreal because I was worried about penalties.

    Thats why I like tracks like Montreal historic, massive high curbs that require some respect, feels great when you get it right. Must be the risk vs reward factor...

    At one point when the championship was being rescheduled there was mention of a day/night cycle, I haven't heard anything else though, so am I correct in assuming that the race will be a regular daytime race?

    No the 24h simulation idea has been scrapped. This will happen at the same virtual time as the previous two rounds :)

    The server in game race time is set to 4PM with normal time acceleration. We wanted to do a full day/night simulation as it looks absolutely smashing on Suzuka but we fear as people haven't tested this some will run into performance issues so we'll keep it like it was ;)
