WTCC 2006 - Monza 06

Guest

Set in a park, 10 miles north of the city of Milan, Monza is Europe's oldest permanent circuit still in use. It is 3.585 Miles / 5.793 km in length and even though chicanes now infiltrate on three fast sections, the sweeping corners and long straights make this the fastest circuit on the Formula 1 as well as the WTCC calendar.

It is one of the most historic motor racing circuits in the world.



The circuit is flat, with little variation in elevation, and regarded as a track which tests horsepower rather than driver skills. This is not the case when it comes to WTCC racing. Here the relatively equal cars put all focus on the drivers ability to get the most out of the available potential. A cool head and a talent for clean lines is a must here... as is the ability and the nerve to go extremely deep into the braking zones.

On slower and more narrow tracks drivers can make their cars wide and make overtaking virtually impossible for long stretches of the track, but at Monza there are no such breathing rooms. It's all nailbiting head to head action. This could be the track where you will feel the heat of the incredible AI drivers the most, they will do their best to rattle you from start to finish.

My best is exactly ...

1.59.800

using unmodified SimBin setups I got from somewhere but can't remember where.

I also think that time is beatable, not all corners were perfect in that time !

Suvv.

yeah right :) unmodified in my vocab means a default car and no way you drive a 1.59 with a default car !!

No you've got me wrong Stig. I did not use the default. I found dozens of setups made by SimBin ( 3 for each car - advanced, beginner and wet ). They were posted on a forum ( maybe rscnet but I can't remember ) and I have been using those.

2:00.165 with Honda, pro level no aids.

In the next lap i started with 0,5 sec faster after the first sector, then i focked it up..... :lol: Thats it so far, improvement will come! lol


I tried for couple of laps the cars and the Honda seems to be the most stable one, maybe other cars are faster, i do not have enough experience yet.
