    Has there been anybody else tried this track in VR? besides myself. As I'm thinking that last left hander is got2b the steepest and shortest bank curve I've ever seen. A bit overdone. Well anyway I was wondering if we can have a three minute break between races? As I'll be needing to empty my bucket for a further 15 minutes of vomiting.:roflmao:.

    There will be a 5 minute warmup before race two, as is the norm for multiple races now. :thumbsup:

    Cheers for the tip Rupe :thumbsup:

    Sounds awesome but it's ages since I booted up R3E and unfortunately I won't get chance to set it up properly before the event. If any OSW users though have any FFB setup tips, it would be much appreciated as I'd like to give this game another shot :)

    Ahh yes thanks. I saw that some time ago but I still couldn't get it feeling quite right. I'll try again anyway and do some more fiddling with the various settings.

    It's free!

    OK, but you have to buy Knutstorp and the Tatuus, those are not part of the free package. Still, you're looking at spending less than 6 euro for the track and the car with one livery, which is all you need to participate in this race.

    I've run a bunch of laps in the past few days and I think it's the most technical track I have ever driven. . I've attached the setup I'll be using. Couple of things I've noticed:

    1) there's a LOT of coasting involved so resist the urge to tap the brake in many corners, especially for turns 6, 11 and 13;
    2) I've tested several wing values and I've done my best laptimes with 5/11 (I didn't seem to achieve much more grip with higher settings);
    3) don't max out camber and toe, the track shreds tires.

    Let me know if I'm way off and if you have anything else to add :D

    In, but as a spectator. I need to test some overlays for RDGT if possible?

    Sadly I'm also have to pull out of the race. I'm really as sick as a dog :(. Have just tried a couple of laps, but it's a no go for me. My head is one big fog, filled with snot and a massive sore throat. When I'm better I call for duty for a next event! :inlove::thumbsup:

    What you got there mate is a serious case of man flu which we all know, well men do, that it can be deadly. So what you'll be needing to do is plenty of gargling with antiseptic mouthwash, plenty of vitamin C get yourself some oranges make sure you eat the white pith just beneath the orange peel and on the Orange itself that's where most of the vitamin C is. Try snorting, yes snorting a little warm salted water from a teaspoon revolting yes but it does help the throat and sinuses. If you're a smoker try to refrain from doing so it will counteract any vitamin C that you put in your body. There is an old saying, feed a cold, starve a fever. So if you just got a cold eat like a horse but if you've got a bit of a fever eat nothing but drink a lot, orange juice, Lucozade and water. There are some good monster Energy drinks that has some extra vitamins in them as well as some extra energy that you are probably lacking at present I suspect.
    Anyway good luck and get well soon.

    PS @BBKing212 I've just noticed you're not well as well. Well I recommend the same if you like to get well. Saying well so many times I don't really think it's going to help. Oh well. Get "better" soon. Nearly went with the well.:roflmao:
