    I've driven this circuit once about a year ago when I first downloaded it. Have no specific setup either, its just generic.

    Everyone should just join in the fun, don't get hung up on specifically learning or being fast or setting up for it, most of the fun battles are mid pack, or at the back anyways :D - A 20 min practice is enough to get an idea of the track.

    Hi Joel, Can you sign me in as a maybe too with the 911? I don't know if I can make it on time. If there aren't any slots available anymore, you can give mine to someone else. Or you can put me on the reservelist right away.

    I'm no great shakes with setups, though if anyone wants a couple for the 650S - I've two that give fairly decent times... for me anyway:p Just shout if you want them.

    @Medilloni thanks for the mention. This is an awesome circuit that I love to drive. I would love to join you and @Chris Down with team 650S, but I'm still a little under the weather. I'm definitely on the other side of this last issue. I loved your comment about sharing a setup if Chris did:laugh::laugh:. Good to see you guys promoting and joking in the race threads. Now, if we were allowed to share lap times, I'd post some of mine to really get you boys laughing :D Watch that fast 4th / 5th gear right handed corner after the left handed hotel hairpin turn. She can be a bitty through there if your suspension/ down force / brake bias aren't in harmony. Have fun and keep the shiny side up:thumbsup:

    Saturday and Sundays are all taken up for me now, not able to get home in time Sunday, at least for the time being.
    Thank you for the mention though.:thumbsup:

    I would have really liked a bash at this circuit, finding a lot of enjoyment of late in learning new circuits.

    I went on this track yesterday night to learn it and it scared me :confused::confused: the braking zone downhill on the back straight is just nuts ... you don't see anything and you have to also remember to brake, instead of saying: BRACE YOURSELF. YOU'RE GONNA FALL.

    It's mega, coming down the hill and staying flat into the left hander. Love watching Chris Harris abusing cars around there.

    I had a quick go last night, literally 5 laps is all i could manage, its like 29degrees in that room and using VR I am melting!

    Don't know where you are from, but 29 degrees Celsius is acceptable in the summer in the city :)) ... didn't test with VR, thou ... funny how different cities and countries have different measures for how hot it is :))

    I'm from Shropshire? England. 29 degrees is the temp in the house. No AC, for me its so hot, and im 68kg wannabe race driver build haha.

    VR adds alot of heat, last year i had a puddle of sweat in the headset and had to retire from the race lol.

    I'm in the same boat. If the temperature doesn't drop I'm going to struggle to last the full 75 minutes - I'll probably turn up @ the end of qualifying and see how I go from there.

    @jayk and @pattikins I feel for you guys. Here in the southern part of the US, I've had my AC go out upstairs where I have my pc and the temps in my room were between 88 - 94 F° or 31 - 34C° not to mention that our humidity is generally between 60 - 85% during the summer. I couldn't help but think of a video I came across from Jimmy B and it's only 6 laps at Brands:confused::confused: Anyway, watch a little of it and jump to the end if you want. Pretty funny imo:D

    now, that looks hot, with AC turned on :confused:. We usually have this outside in the hot summer days. It's not ideal, but it manageable in the shadow. The occasionally 5-10 days with 36-38 C tend to be pretty hot thou ... The problem is that this summer we got lots of rainy days ... which doesn't really happen for so long in a raw.

    Forecast is much cooler for Sunday, but if one's exudation is prolific, one might try this race attire for extra cooling:

    Hope it helps, works for me;):p:p
