    Nice combo! Had a go offline as no server up tonight, got the feeling a good setup could make all the difference here! Can't wait to see some times....

    Ok. Waiting for a server i tested in a single event. Of course my PB (53:335) is from Qualy.

    For everyone interessted, here's the lap and the setup.

    I think my cutting in the chicane was ok(?). As long as there are 2 wheels inside the track it's ok, and in my lap it's been half the car.

    C U soon on the server... :pirate:

    In this track there's the matter of cutting in the outlap.. technically it's not cutting because the actual timed lap is still legal ie. no cutting DURING the timed lap. It gives about 10 km/h more straight line speed. And is somebody going to check all the replays of all the laps? Didn't think so i think that because you can't be sure it is allowed. It is legally on the "grey" area but technically it is allowed. And the markers on that chicane are specially good, they really react if you cheat. Maybe the best in the whole game, nothing like the Monza T1 markers..

    For fairness I dont mind checking all the hotlaps if I could get hold of them. But I would emphasize all participants to please avoid cutting the last chicane in your outlap.

    This weeks challenge will run until next Friday 00:00GMT.

    I agree with Abdul.

    No doubt we are all gentleman driver! Logicaly sometimes you'll cut the chicane a bit too much not really wanting to do it, but this doesn't automaticaly mean the following lap becomes your best lap.

    I don't see a problem there! :glasses-cool:

    The best thing to do is avoid that bump if you can. Brake into 4th on entering the fast chicane, then making sure to avoid the kerbing, brake slightly into 3rd as you take the left. Control the throttle through the second right-hander and you're through. :)

    Is the server set to qualy now like mentioned in the first post?

    When i joined it yesterday it was on practice before qualy.

    What could happen then ist, that there are some people on the server for hours beeing into practice and maybe it then switches to qualy. So other guys joining would have better grip. I had this on the A1Ring MMG F1 test server.

    I think it's more transparent if it's ever set on qualy!

    I'll do my hot laps on monday morning...

    I made my lap during practice, but i think the server should be lock in practice or quali, in order that everyone turn with the same grip condition.

    No wonder I'm always so slow!
    I always thought it was the car or worse yet, me!

    that's what i meant!

    So i think all the times now were driven in practice. So in order to keep it fair, is it possible to lock the server in practice from now on?

    it pretty much is... there is a 900mins practice session and a 1lap race.... there is no way to set a better lap time after a standing start on a race:)
