    Thank you - I really appreciate the warm welcome and help.

    I've got Team Speak all set up - but do I need to select a specific channel on race day to be able to communicate?

    Also - does anyone have a vague idea of how to set up fuel / pit stints for this race? Just run full tank and then come in when it's running low? Sorry about all the Q's - I'm very much a newbie!

    When you open TS it'll put you in 'Chit Chat' by default (as you were when I took this screen shot!), so double click on Assetto Corsa and you'll be talking in the event natter channel - example below where my name is;)

    For your race fuel/tyres you might find it easier to select your Pitstop Strategy before the race, otherwise you'll need to use your 'D Pad' to add fuel, select tyres etc, and on this track I'd guess it's hard to do (no long straights).

    If you watch the vid I posted at about 47secs in, you can see he's showing you how to select strategies in your setup window, the 3 potential strategies you might want to set - please remember, if you leave your tyre choice as 'NO CHANGE', it means 'don't change my tyres', not, 'keep the same compound'... don't ask how I know that:whistling:

    The clever guys (aka, not me) often work out they can, for example, do 3/4 of the race on mediums and fuel to that distance, then at their stop might go onto softs.... and other variations:O_o: I have the brain of an abacus so tend to go half and half and set an option to not change tyres if I think I can get to the end without, but always with an option to change tyres of course.

    So, in your 3 potential pitstop strategies you might have 1) as half fuel again, new medium tyres, 2) as half fuel, no tyre change-they're-doing-great-thanks, and 3) half fuel and softs or hards, to choose once you see how the tyres are holding up, or not:p

    Now you're in the race, you're happy to stop half way and you want the same as you started with, so you'll be on option 1 anyway. If you want to select a different strategy, use your D Pad to select it before you stop (you can do it in the pits I believe, but you'll lose time).

    Hope that helps - and to others, please steam in if I've f***ed up:roflmao:

    Damn I really dont get how to have any type of consistency over Corkscrew, its like the car is behaving differently every time I go over it. Im at +-0.100 second at every other section, but corkscrew is messing my consistency by +-1s, and thats if I dont spin out :D Definitely the hardest corner Ive encountered in my simracing career so far.

    It is an iconic corner for sure*. The few GT3 races I've done here, I've either gone off on my own at the corkscrew, or taken out here - seems to have two very distinct lines; late in seems quicker but gives an easy overtake for anyone following, then the whole sequence is out of kilt for both of you.

    If only I could take it like this every lap:inlove:


    *I do apologise for saying 'for sure' I didn't mean to sound like a racing driver:p:roflmao:

    That’s pretty much my line and entry, turning point too, the only difference is that driver is in control, with me It is a more of a luck of the draw, with the car bashing and crashing at all sort of weird angles, luckily I made it sort of experience.:confused:
    Maybe I should drive with my head sticking out of the sun roof.:roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:
    Good video John, will keep studying it, the penny may drop eventually.:rolleyes:
