    Sakitto Circuit Image.png
    The Sakitto Circuit is the home of many Japanese motor sport events; and now it is the home of the Friday Night GT Series’ opening round. With all the drivers clearing the Young Drivers’ Evaluation Test, it was now time to go racing in Japan. The track is a technical one with some very demanding twists and turns like the two Degner corners and the high speed 130R. So which car will thrive in the tricky nature of the circuit? Will the Mercedes win through with its high power engine, or will the Audi or McLaren’s cornering ability help their drivers to the win? Can BMW show their hand in the opening race? All will be revealed as Qualifying begins in Japan!

    It's a decent cornering car. Not great in a straight

    As the moron I am, a while. Although a bit of it was getting used to the game again after F1 15.

    Q:
    How much practice have you done for this first event?

    Quite a bit. Most of it in the wrong car though :p Don't think there is much improvement coming from me in this circuit though.

    Q: Which characteristic of your car will set you up well for this circuit?

    Has good turn in but the mid corner understeer kills it a bit for S1 so doesnt make it much special on this track. Might be setup though. Hope I find something during the week.

    Q: Where do you aim to finish this week?
    Was going to say P3 behind Adam and Ben. Now with their change of car I don't know. Hope it slows them down :D

    Q: How long on average does it take to create a set-up for a circuit?

    About an hour and then when I put it in a hedge for the sixth time I reset it to stock. Seriously though I just change some things until I don't crash as much.

    Q: How much practice have you done for this first event?

    Does rocket league count as practice?

    Q: Which characteristic of your car will set you up well for this circuit?

    It has a steering wheel to deal with the twisty bits. I'm not a big fan of this track though.

    Q: Where do you aim to finish this week?

    I'll be doing my up most to keep it on the asphalt and with a bit of luck I wont come last.
