S3 | [R3 / R4] - Brno

Discussion in 'TNGTC GT3 - GT3 Pro' started by Andrew Holmes, Jul 16, 2016.

    THIS WEEK

    This week the Thursday Night GT Championship comes to an old favourite, the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic. This circuit has been on the calendar for all three seasons and has always delivered good racing. With only four different car manufacturers on the grid, the pack will be very close on tracks like this. As the majority of the grid is made up of Aston Martins and BMWs, the field will be very, very close.

    THE CIRCUIT
    The circuit is predominantly a motorbike racing circuit, but has since taken on other forms of racing. It was constructed in 1987 and has taken on the World Touring Car Championship, Formula Three, DTM, Moto GP and many more championships, including the TNGTC. The circuit is all about carrying speed through the long, fast corners, which favours the BMW M3 GT. However, the long straights will favour the Aston Martin.

    So, no project cars for me until I can get my mustang running again. Damn thing doesn't want to start. I thinks it's simething with the fuel pump. So I gotta look at the relay, inertia switch, and the pump itself. Hopefully I can get it all done tomorrow.

  10. Q: What positives and negatives can you take from the first two races?

    I tried real hard to prepare for the race, I wasn't that far off the pace but when I came to race day I was nowhere.....

    Err..... I still have my health

    Q: Will you change your approach for this event?

    Nope, but I have less time to practice here

    Q: How do you prepare for these races?

    I find a setup, I learn the track, find another setup, then try and find the 5 secs I'm behind .....



    Q: Would you like to return to this venue for Season Four?

    Won't know till after the race....
     
  11. Dude don't worry, I haven't practiced at all for this week. I might be able to make it back for the Sprint if I'm lucky so I'll be going in blind on a setup I've never run before in a random grid event on a circuit I haven't practiced on all week:roflmao:

  16. Im hearing race time has been changed again....when was i supposed to find out?? At race time?? As far as i was aware race times was 11am and midday...now im hearing 5pm?? One day before the race? Been practicing what the calender says only ro be told otherwise

    Can someone clarify this plz....ot am i barking up the wrong tree
     
  17. Trust me mate anytime other than 11 is good, unless you want your tyres to melt off the rim after two laps lol
     
  18. The time is not the issue....its the lack of notice..the times on the calender is what ive been practicing....and setting car up. everyone in the same boat when it comes to tyres but i do hear u about them melting the lol but We all having tyre issues. I just dont agree with time changes being agreed in private and not making it public until race day!

    1.Its A Late Call On This Matter As I Didn't Decide On This Till Last Night Due To The Conditions Not Bothering Myself At All But In The Interest Of Most Who Where Finding Issues Due To The Conditions (Tyre Overheating Ect) I Tested The Conditions For Hour And A Half And They Are Better All Around For Everyone , Plus Unless Ive Posted Stating The Time Change Which I Havent Up Until Now Then Its Not Official So Just Wait For Confirmation As You Will get It.

    2.The Time Change is To 5am Not 5pm Just So Your Not On The Wrong Time I Do Apoligise To Everyone For The Short Notice But I Can Assure Everyone The Conditions Are Better Than Previous As Im Still Doing The Same Lap Times Without Changes To The Setup, Myself And Everyone eles Have Been Testing The Previous Time Up Until Now So Your Not The Only 1 Nor Are You The Only 1 To Be Finding Out Short Notice But I Did A 1.56.989 Last Night So Lap Times Are Same

    3.If You Need Me Message Me And Save The Post Unless Ive Confirmed Whatever's Been Said Please :), If I Dont Get Back To You Straight Away Dont Worry As I will ASAP.

    Apologies
    To Everyone (Again) And
    Thanks For The Cooperation See You All Tonight
