The Silverstone Circuit is a motor racing circuit in England located next to the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury.
Silverstone is the current home of the British Grand Prix, which it first hosted in 1948. The 1950 British Grand Prix at Silverstone was the first race in the newly created World Championship of Drivers. The race rotated between Silverstone, Aintree and Brands Hatch from 1955 to 1986, but relocated permanently to Silverstone in 1987. The circuit also hosts the British round of the MotoGP series.

Original post updated with correct time acceleration (was 1x now 2x) to match server settings.

(Change wont make any real difference with the race being in mid-day and there not being any weather randomness, so the forecast length doesn't matter)

The settings on the hivemind server are nowhere near 'Medium Rain'.
I'm 4 seconds slower than with medium rain settings in single player, nice 1,5h of practice wasted :cautious:

Were you in the server alone @D. Goelz? And did you test single player with cars on the track?

In a populated server I'm 3 or 4 seconds faster than I am in an empty server, so if you had cars in SP but none in Hivemind then it should balance out.

I was on the Hivemind server with 3 guys or so and did 2.12 whereas in SP practice session with medium rain and no other cars I was doing 2.08. The rain is definitely more intense on the servers as visibility is worse than in single player, there are more puddles on track and the kerbs are more slippery.

But we will see, seems like if cars are on track that you can reach SP medium rain times, so my practice session wasn't wasted :)

God, you have no idea how many times I slapped myself yesterday.

Had a good start and some really close driving in the opening laps with @Jardier and @M. Nobel , before everything settled a bit and we were driving the whole first stints with 1sec gaps to each other. My tires had a little bit to much pressure and I could close the gap to @Jardier in the last laps of the first stint so I decided to go for an early pitstop to get pressures right and maybe do an undercut. So adjusted pressures and went to the pits, everything looked good for me at that point, what could go wrong? Pitstop was alright, went out again and almost crashed into the pit exit because the car did not want to turn a bit. First I thought the pressures are too low before I recognized that I switched to dry tires during the pit stop :sneaky::sneaky::cautious::cautious:
Somehow completed the lap, went in again, switched to wet tires this time, but was dead last at this point... Next lap I was a tad too aggressive out of T1 and spun out into the barries on the right side, giving me a brokes front suspension and I called it a day after that...

What a disaster for a race which was really really good fun to this point. Would love to do more races in that kind of conditions, as the competition was super close. Top 7 were still in between 10s after 30mins (y)

Congrats to the podium finishers!

Cheers,
Dom
