    I have not started a race yet.. just did the quali for a 100% race which I will start tonight. I am further from pole here than any other track this season. I am really struggling to find a comfort zone here, i'm not great with the chicanes at this track so it's proving tough to get comfortable.

    I've had a couple sessions already this week to try to sort out a setup, but have had little success. The back end is a nightmare out of T2, T7, and T10.
    Best quali lap so far of 1:14.1
    Haven't made it past lap 20 in 2 race starts yet though.

    I'm finding that last chicance is difficult to find a good line through without either getting a corner cut warning or being thrown into the wall of champions. If I make it through unscathed I then get oversteer on exit just for good measure. Getting the right turn-in to corners 3-4 is tricky as well if I don't want to clout the wall on exit. Come to think of it most of the track is tricky.

    I agree they are both tricky parts of the track. I just haven't been able to spot my turn-in for them consistently yet. I am hoping 70 laps of a practice race will imprint it better in my muscle memory.

    We haven't had a league race here since the 2014 season... I raced 2 at PES that I'm sure were wet.

    the last one we ran here was dry thanx to the weather in the 2014 game being inconstant, and we had to divulge a way to set it ourselves instead of relying on the game. If we left it up to the game that year we would have had a wet session almost 70% of the time, which in real life doesn't happen. This game seems to be more in line with real life though.
