After discussions with Warren over a few ideas our GTL event for next week is something rather tasty!
Lets head over to the small nation of San Marino for an Italian feature race with the Ferrari 275GTB at Imola.
With a one make field and a track that throws up most corner types and various length straights this should be a fantastic event.

Who can resist the chance to drive (or at least try to drive) a classic Ferrari around Imola.

I'm in, it will be nice to try to learn a new car. Haven't tried this one hardly at all.

I've only had one very brief try with the Ferrari and found the same thing. It is very sensitive re when to downshift and how hard to brake. I found I had to brake a little easier and downshift at much lower revs or the tail let go frequently.

Pitstops...I don't think we can do without them because you can't load enough full for the whole race,beside of that the tires want hold it,

It might be interesting to see some strategy here then, it looked to me that it might be possible to not do one but you would need to drive very carefully.

I think it is good when it is left to strategy and not compulsory.

This car on this track is tough. I am barely able to turn a 2:20.4, and I am spinning a lot. The Ferrari is very sensitive to down shifts, and somewhat sensitive to braking. I won't have any time to do a real setup since I just started practicing now, and the race is in less than 24 hrs.

It is a shame that there is not more participation in GTL. The cars are tough, but the events are fun, and I have really enjoyed them. In particular, this crowd seems a bit more polite than even the FD Series crowd in Race07, which I really appreciate. Perhaps there might be a way to get this message out to those who have been a bit disappointed with the aggressive driving elsewhere?!
