    My mini's in the Euro Skinpack. Until I make another one of course. Might do a US special.

    Well I decided to lap this litle kart track in the MINI kart and managed to run hi 38's. its gonna be a fun drive on Wednesday let me tell you!

    The mini genrally doesn't give me big graphics problems neither so I am stoked for a decent drive a ton of fun!

    finally got my setup to transfer online so its there if you wanna try it out.

    Have we determined the lap coiunt yet? at a comfy 39-40 race pace in traffic we can easily spin 25 times no?

    BTW here's my skin choice. Repsol sexy!!!!:smile:

    I was thinking 30 laps in both the minis and the WTCC's

    The mini race would be slightly longer, but also starts 1 hour earlier. At 35seconds a lap in WTCC it means about 17 minute race length. This means the mini race would be close to 20 minutes per race.

    Im extremely excited for racing this week.

    30 laps!? PERFECT!

    is there a way to make it a timed race? just curious about that since I haven't been to the Emerald City yet.

    what car is lapping in the 35's for TCC models? I am thinking the tiniest wheel base would be perfect for this little circuit.

    I made it 25 laps for the Mini guys. The idea of the Wed event is that it doesnt take too much time in the middle of the week:)

    It will be 30laps for the STCC.

    To answer the question it was in a C30 totally defualt setup.

    I expect times to get down to 33's when geared right and such, but we will discuss that in the other thread, and the group :)


    As for the Minis, I have been given 1 hour tonite to practice by my GF. I was thinking around 8:30pm EST? If anyone wants to practice with TS on I should be on around then.

    Id also like to point people to the Mini Skin Pack compiled by the one and only Andrew Evans for the Mini Friday events for the EU timezones. It is linked here, and has some INCREDIBLE mini skins in it.

    http://forum.racedepartment.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=898

    I highly suggest if anyone wants a mini skin that they get this. It is no required but highly recommended

    Did some practice there last night, and it is gonna be one hell of a race. The strategy will be interesting too because I think you will go a lap down when you pit, just like in the Friday race.

    Would be ideal to see 20+ for this mini race. Cmon ppl.

    Chris, given the track i think that 39-40 will be race pace.

    And don't forget the uindestructible mini gearbox.

    yah its going to be about line and passing more than outright lap speed in the race for most of us.

    tight racing should be expected here for sure.
