    Looking forward to these events!

    Did a few post race tests at Birmingham to check out some of the cars.

    20 minutes per car. 35 laps of fuel.

    So far tested:

    Alfa 75 - easy to get into the corners, easy to get out of the corners. Light and nimble, I found this car easy to recover from mistakes but hard to be precise. I was consistently putting down fast sector times but not fast laps. Overall I like this car but racing against the AI at 115% created interest in seeing what some of the heavier higher horsepower cars would be like.

    Nissan Skyline - this car had a super smooth power band, good power that was easy to get down on the ground. It didn't seem to have the best braking distance, felt uncomfortable over the curbing, didn't seem to like the long corners. This car feels like it has a lot of potential, but with only 20 minutes of testing, it was obvious I wasn't going to set down a series of fast laps that the car seemed capable of doing.

    Holden Commodore - I wanted to see what a big horsepower car was like. The Commodore has a lot to like and saw me post the fast time relatively quickly. The car seems easy to drive up to 9/10 but not so easy to ride on the limit. It certainly is a lot of fun to drive but not so sure it would be too fun to race. With a little bit of work, and certainly depending on the track schedule, this car could be a winner. With me driving in the test, fast laps were easy but consistent ones were not.

    Ford Sierra 500 - this car also has ample power. Certainly not the grunt of the Holden, but it it is no weakling! To be honest I just selected this car so I can cross it off my list. I didn't really fancy myself driving a Ford. The car is kind of like the Volvo. It doesn't do anything particularly well but it doesn't do anything really bad. It has a good punchy motor and get on with the business. No blazing lap times but it seemed like it might be good on tires and easy to keep on the tarmac over race distance.

    Just some talking points before the WTM season 3. There really is a lot to like about this mod.


    Looking to test next: Toyota Supra, Rover (second visit), BMW 635
     
  13. Anyone got any time? i did a 1:57.006 and just want to know how far off the pace i am.. cheers
     
  14. what car are you driving Dave? I think fuel is also important to note...I was doing low 1:55 seconds with only 12 laps of fuel.

    Anyone else want to share race pace notes? I will update times after a run with race fuel...
     
  15. i'm in.
