    So, is everyone ok with the start time of this race? It will be 100% distance so could take 2 hours to complete.

    Time is perfectly fine for me, if it has to be brought forward and hour I'm also fine with that.

    Start Time is good with me too. But if moved forward and hour, that's no biggie either.

    Time is fine, I hate China with a passion though i imagine but race will mirror Mclaren's endlessly overtaken on the straight before ending in a barrier :laugh:

    I'll probably join you in the barrier since the final corner is 50/50 on letting me actually survive it :rolleyes:

    The hardest turn on the track is the entry to the double left hander in sector 2. You have to perform a Scandinavian flick to get it just right. :confused:

    I'd agree actually that corner is a tricky one to get consistently right and when the tyres are losing grip it becomes even more so.

    The last corner is also quite difficult to get consistently right and it's so important because if you get it wrong you lose speed on the long run down to turn 1. Same with the loop before the back straight really.

    This track is an exercise in controlled oversteer. Except for the slow corners, the big loops and even several others will have your hands very busy. That's what makes it a decent designer.

    OK guys you may have to find a new host for tomorrow. One of the daughters birthdays tomorrow and an afternoon visit we were going to make has just changed to a family BBQ... starting around 4ish :rolleyes::unsure:. I'm hoping I can be back in time but can't guarantee it, depends how quickly things get going on the cooking front. I'll be prompting them if things are dragging you can bet on that.

    I'll post here tomorrow evening as soon as I know the score, fingers crossed it will all be done and dusted in time for me to race.

    Still not left yet and it's a bit of a journey to get home... just remembered too that it's an early kick-off so that jusy abit Zeals the deal.. disappointed as I always enjoy Shanghai and would it have been good to race it after today's great GP. But had a great sunny afternoon with family so can't complain too much.

    Good luck and hoping you all have a clean and trouble free race :thumbsup:

    Afternoon fellas. It's been a while, hope your all doing well! It's great to see the Xbox championship is still going strong

    After the GP today I felt the need to break out the wheel and do a few laps so if any of you are after some practice before the race let me know and we will blast around China :)
