Just a reminder please have your headlights on and a key mapped in case they don't turn on by default. You can check it by looking at your cars dashboard.

In the tradition of previous seasons.... where are people's times falling in your practices? I'm hovering around low 32's for qual and 33/34's for race. Hopefully with some more fine tuning and practice I get the times down.

I haven't really done much Quali running yet as I'm still trying to get my tire temps under control.

So far my race pace is high 33's but I can't do it for long as my tire temps go crazy. In a quick race I had last night, I was in the 38's for quite a while before I gave up :(

I have some work to do to get my times in a range where I will be acceptable.

Are you using hards for the race? It's the only way to go and once they heat up and build pressure they are good. I am going softs for Qual tho.

What car are You using this season? I tested with M6 and softs work for me for a hour without a problem.

I have left the M6 world and joined the dark side of Audi!! I have more testing to do but pretty sure it's hards for me.

I am able to run high 33's consistently. The only problem is the back of the car, which is not as planted as I want it to be. Ah well, I'll probably recreate Tokyo Drift then

Yes Hards only, soft's don't last a lap for me.

The rear get hot and then starts to slide, once it slides the temps go sky high. I think I just need to manage my driving style in the first few laps.

Glad I'm not in that Aston, to get 33's in that you must be a superman.

we have that practice tonight, correct! We usually have all tiers in one lobby, unless we get so many sign ups that we need to split it.
In that case, we'll group by tier :)

I'm still a bit lost on this track as never driven it before yesterday, not very consistent. Managed to do 1:30,4 in quali but times vary by a couple of seconds per lap. Need to work on the setup still.

A 1:30 is a really fast time! I'm still learning the track myself, and also had a bit of issues with the car, so not sure where I will end up. probably not in front. practice tonight is important...

Interesting.....I didn't sign up 'cos I thought I'd be waaaay off the pace, then I saw you doing 32's(while I was doing 35's) so thought that confirmed it. If your 32 was qual pace, my 35 was race pace with full fuel on Hards that's not so bad (plus my race pace has improved to 33/34 for the laps where I don't have an accident)

i'm on high 1:31s on quali and low 1:33s on race pace, 1:30.4 is a laptime worth of Tier 2 people (i ran few practice lobbies where aliens posted 1:29s or low 1:30s)
Very well done mr Slowly!

Trouble is that I'm still learning the car and tracks. Started playing the game only a month ago. Also the Sakitto time trial time has gone down from 1:45s to 1:42:s but after the sign up time ended. I'm going to struggle on races anyway I think, too many mistakes.

we'll see. consistency is always key! but those are fast times.
If you really would be outpacing the entire tier, we may move you mid-season too, so everyone has a competitive environment. but we'll see how it goes. certainly you have a misleading name :p

Are there drivers in this tier who stream their PoV? I believe @Stephan streams most of his races, but don’t know of anyone else. A friend of mine would like to see the races I am in, but I highly doubt we get an AOR-commentator in this tier. Do the more people that are streaming, the better picture he get’s of this race/league =D

Well I'm racing in F1 with guys like ACR Timp, Mr. Ankka and G2Töpä and I'm very slow compared to them ?

I'll be streaming, as always :)

If we find a commentator, we can have that too! But it's more likely the commentary will be on the top tiers.
