    Hello guys.

    Another season, and hopefully better weather than ever :). We're continuing on the same format we used for the last races of the last season, with a percentage of rain during one session. The first forecast will also contain info on what kind of rain to expect when it's raining.

    The first forecast for Nürburgring:

    The chance of rain during a session is 35 %. It's most common with long lasting rain, with somewere around light to medium* intensity.

    I will post the second forecast in this thread, aswell as updating this post, on the tuesday before the race (the 21:st) at 19:00 UTC, which is 20:00 CET.

    *I'm testing to borrow the rain intensity ranges from Reiks awesome pic this time. Should I continue to do that?

    --------------------------

    Sorry for not replying to your post Nico, but I was away from friday to sunday. It's a good idea, but since we haven't discussed anything about it I'll do it like I've planned. But maybe changeing it for the following races.


    The second forecast for Nürburgring:

    Practice: No rain forecasted.

    Qualifying: There should be no rain in this session.

    Warmup: A rain front move over the circuit at around this time. Medium intensity.

    Race: There may be some rain or moisture left from the front if it haven't dried up. Otherwise cloudy.

    Anything above 90% for more than couple of minutes is red flag....Depends on the track wetgrip values. AFAIK.

    Thanks Daniel :)

    One thing, will the second forecast reviel what the weather will be like on race day? Or will it still be 35% chance of rain up until the race starts? I think the latter (35% up until race start) would be an advantage in terms of not having to practice wet the last 24 hours.

    Do what you think is best :) If you are unsure of anything, just ask us in the forum.

    Nice weather Daniel. :cool:

    A wet warm up session and foreboding dark clouds during the race. I fully expected it to rain during the race, which it didn't. I added a couple of extra clicks to the rear wing in anticipation.

    Thank you.

    Nice one Dan

    I also had one eye on the clouds and put a bit more fuel in to start the race in case I needed to go longer first stint, I t didn't rain in the end but it kept us awake:)

    The extra fuel made my two stops quicker and got me ahead of Valter and Bob so all good:)
