@Sean: shouldn't the throttle map always be set to 'Fast' for the fastest lap times? I only recently discovered you can change this and in time trial it has a huge effect on acceleration, I noticed this right after I switched it and could suddenly easily keep up and overtake my own ghost car..

Anyway, thanx a million for sharing these, I'll give them a go next time I play and see if I can improve my 1:16:8xx time ;)

Hi yeah my set up was for an actual race change it to fast if you want. I had it on cruise because when I had it on fast I kept spinning out but when I changed it to cruise I managed to beat my old time by 2 whole seconds.

in first sector almost all the time use throttle, except turn one when u need brake a little and throttle again, then after "long straight" are 2 fast corners one left one right, almost on full throttle, then u got curve 360 degree, u slow a bit then bridge and slow chicane (brake when ur car is on downhill) after that is fast left corner fast chicane m after it full brake and try to get fast from last chicane, then relax 2 slow corners to finish line :) hope it helps

I was using a pad up until a few days ago,then I bought a logitech wheel,on some tracks now im nearly 4-5 seconds quicker,its so much better and I really didnt think it would make that much difference!

it really comes down to preference, I know a guy who posted the 7th time on the Spa leaderboard yesterday, and he's using a (PS3) pad... I'm using a wheel and cannot get even close although I know the track.

If only the ghost car download didn't fail on me every time I would be able to see where I'm missing time arggghhh
