    @Justin Swan , I can't discuss lap times but my records show laps are about equal to 45 minutes.
    You want longer, that's why we have Mini Friday!

    @Arunas Linkevicius , my eyes, my eyes!

    This endurance layout allows a quick outlap for qualifying. Pitting is a bit more difficult but hey, it's another track.

    When qualifying, leave the pit and go to where the entrance to the Nord's is but then go around the last turn of the GP track, being very careful of the barriers, and run to the start line which is a bit further down the track.

    To pit, drive past the pit as you leave the Nord's and go around the "infield", after the chicane stay to the far right to enter the pit.

  17. Hi. I have been away but home now and can do this one please.
     
  18. Fiddled with the Chevvy for way too long - making it progressively worse with every little tweak.
    Changed to Seat with 5 mins to Q.
    Rear puncture in Q. Omen.

    Lap 1, after the first long acceleration on the Nords, over a left crest and into a braking zone for a downhill right hander.
    Chevvy changed direction very handily there. Seat did not.
    Skimmed along into the far barriers and popped my engine.
    Magnificent.

    Need to pick a WTCC and stick with it. :cool:

    Just wasn't working for me today, I geared the car wrong which caught me out a few times. I was a minute behind, on my own, and there's no fun in that. I did get a good 2 hours practice on the track though, so not a complete loss in my books.

    :confused: I got a minidump as soon as I crossed the line, hope it didn't change the results :(

    Suffered a bit with the car during practice and Q but got it straight for the race. Again, a fantastic car to drive! Shadowed Justin and his very loose car for the first alp, too close though and lost time at the end of L1. Chased Arunas until he had too many offs and glided pat the pit that was full of cars. I couldn't close enough on Justin in the end but the outcome was better than anticipated at the end of L1 :)
