    I'm behind in practice for this, and it's a circuit i need a lot of time on because of the blind corners and tough turns. I've been playing Assetto Corsa instead.

    Yeah I only had a 30 wet practice and the quali in the online test last week as my race ended after about 50 metres :/

    Based on that I think the track this year seems a bit more forgiving in terms of those blind corners as I didn't have the same kind of difficulty I used to have, especially turns 6 and 14.

    Turn 11 and 14 are the ones that give me the most grief. Oh, and Turn 9.... ugh.

    As with the others I don't think T11 is as difficult this year... the extra grip of these cars helping out there I guess but it also seems easier to spot your braking and turn-in points. Of course I am basing this on 30 minutes of rain practice and two runs on quali :cautious:

    The difficulty with T11 is when the bollard is taken out, as it always is, and likely in the first lap lol
    I used to use the advertisements on the sides of the circuit for braking points there, but i'm not sure there are any this year.....

    Feels good to be back on a proper race track after singabore.
    Some tough corners with difficult breaking points as mentioned above but also some fantastic high speed sections too :)

    It was another Max-induced, FIA-approved racing incident. :thumbsup:
