I'll be bringing the big old Bentley to this one. If I haven't got the pace then it's up to you to find a way around it :D

This might help you out. I found over 2 seconds around Zolder with the tips he gave on setup. Much less prone to snap oversteer on the brakes.


I know the McLaren is strong here, Bentley and Aston are handy too.

Great to have you join us Sascha :thumbsup: I still get nervous every race start even though these are just friendly races! If you pressure @Mbeet2000 enough you can make his leg wobble :D

Thanks for that mate. I really should look at other cars to be honest. But I picked the Porsche right at the beginning and never looked back... I'm still crap in it though.

Don't be at all. If it's any consolation I haven't done any laps in any car on this track..... I'm off work Thursday so might spend a bit of time practising.

:laugh:

Well, my legs will probably be a bit wobbly right from the start so this might prove to be an interesting experience :D
Thanks for the warm welcome !

I've done some laps at Silverstone, but for one reason or another it's one of those tracks which are hard for me to really memorize. ...weird :O_o:
But like you, I'm off work on Thursday so I'll get some practice in before the race as well.

Yeah nice. It takes me longer to memorise now than it used to that's for sure. But for me I don't care where I finish, just want a good battle with a couple of people. Number of entries is promising with 3 days still to go

Same for me Shaun. I love a good battle especially on ACC where the radar makes life so much easier. @Sascha Reynders if you haven't got the radar on already I highly recommend finding it in the settings menu.

If you do get time it would be good to have a practice, that way you know the track well enough to just concentrate on the racing around you.

Have you done much online racing in ACC Sascha ? Or just single player ?

In ACC, I've done some online races on public servers (and survived them all so far ;) ) and 1 race on Simracing.gp. Would have been 2 if I hadn't been disconnected at the start of my 2nd race.... (I suspect this was due to an IP address sharing issue on behalf of my IPS, which I've since then corrected). But most of my ACC racing so far has been single player, yes. I used to do a bit of online racing in R3E, and now I'm getting back into it after taking a break from sim racing for about a year.
I do tend to approach sim racing (be it against AI or real people) like I would be racing in the real world though, within the limits of my capabilities of course.
