    Special notes for the race:
    This Race will be a standing start, Please take care and stick to your line, any driver who deviates from he's line and causes a accident will be deemed at fault (if this happens in the red zone)
    the red zone will be reviewed by the admins automatically, we have introduced this so that every single driver takes care when the race starts, penalties will be severe!

    "2.2 In order to place some control over the possibility of first lap incidents we will consider the area between the “Start Line”, (including the your starting grid possition), until the end of the designated RZ area marked on the trackmap included in each driver briefing to be “The Red Zone” where passing is to be conducted with extreme care. Should an incident occur because a driver chooses to pass in this “Red Zone” the driver making the pass will be held responsible for the incident.

    Same lap times for me , my best was 1m 53.962
    But i think a lap time arround 1m52.6 would be a competitive lap.

    I am having a real hard time at this track. Last week I practiced with the AI at 110% and I usually finished at the top, P3 or even P1 at times. In fact, my fastest lap was often faster than the best AI.

    Jacarepagua it's a tougher proposition. With the AI at 100% I am still a second or two behind. Even at 95% they still have a second on me. I can't figure it out because if I let the AI drive my car it seems to actually go slower in many places.

    My best lap here has been 1:51.5 or so, but I can only string a lap like that once or twice in a practice session. No more. My normal laps with 70 liter or so in the tank are more around 1:53 with 1:52.5 the best I can do consistently.

    I know I can be faster. T2/T3 is still a bit of a puzzle as is the turn after the main straight. I am losing a lifetime there.

    It's a fun track though, and very technical if raced properly with all those turns that narrow at the exit.

    If anyone has a fast lap they can post it would be helpful to a lot of us. I doubt we would be able to gain much but at least we would see where we are going wrong.

    Ran a 53.1 on the default setup with 80L in the car. Plenty of time to find though.
