    THIS WEEK
    Rounds six and seven in the TNGTC come from the Road America circuit this week; with its long straights, fast corners and very warm American temperature, the circuit is a classic on the calendar. We return to this circuit for the first time since Season One. This week we visit the States of the first time this season, but it will not be the last. So, how will you do around this circuit? Let’s find out in the next event of the TNGTC.

    THE CIRCUIT
    The Road America circuit is a purpose built racetrack comprised of fourteen turns, ten right and four right. The circuit stretches over 4.048 miles and has a very high average speed; cars are best set up to rely on efficient aerodynamics, but mechanical grip is needed also.

    Q: How do you feel Monza went?
    A: awesome lucky with my strategy because I planned to 1 stop but f'ed my fuel up and Miss calculated but I've had some bad luck in the first races so I guess I was due that lol fun race

    Q:
    In practice, how strong is your Road America pace?
    A: I'm there or thereabouts should be ok others are faster but then they normally are in qualifying trim. Didn't race here in season 1 hoping that's not a disadvantage

    Q:
    How do you feel about returning to this circuit?
    A: fine I like it, nice flow to it

    Q:
    Do you feel the new One-Shot Qualifying will benefit you?
    A: it maybe won't and sometimes will. It's pressure qualifying and you have to be fast and accurate.....god help us all

  6. Well it looks like I'll be lucky to score points here looking at my pace. I'm baffled as to how I'm losing 1.5 seconds in the middle sector to everyone. Don't know if it's even worth turning up on Thursday and wasting an hour and a half for like 4 points max tbh
     
  7. Q: How do you feel Monza went?
    A: It was a little bit dissapointed but at least i finish the race

    Q: In practice, how strong is your Road America pace?
    A: I Had never race here so i have nothing to compare but i like the truck. I may be slow but i'm getting better with the whole set up thing as i knew nothing

    Q: How do you feel about returning to this circuit?
    A: It's my first time here and i feel excited

    Q: Do you feel the new One-Shot Qualifying will benefit you?
    A: Random start was my only chance to start in a good place, so no it won't benefit
     
  8. guys i had never race here before so can anyone tell me what is a good time here?
     
  9. Best I've seen is low 2.04s mate
     
  10. Like everytime i'm more than 2 sec behind the firsts. I didn't practice a lot and i want to work with the set up a little more but my best was 2 06 5
     
  11. Don't worry you'll get there buddy. I knew nothing about setups when I joined.

    What's the track limits on turn 5 and turn 11? I know most people are probably using the exit curb on 5 and 11 is grass after the curb.
     
  15. 2:06.5, 2 seconds off

  16. From my small experience, you lose time if you run wide though them two corners anyway.
    But I'll say at least two wheels have to be on the Tarmac.
    What do you think @Adam Morris
