This is going to be fun!
I love longer races, the longer the better!

Reverse grids are always fun and produce surprises :)
It's important that the fast guys are patient getting by (nobody has to get out of the way, everyone can defend their position) and it's a great test for the guys in midfield and behind to gain more experience fighting for position.

@GIXXERosg will confirm the starting order in the coming days.

I'm looking forward to strategy here too, as we'll have to take on fuel.

How much downforce are you guys running here?
What laptimes are you aiming for?

It be interesting to see what People do with fuel. Do they go short first, do half and half or go long.

The Aston has only rear wing that is adjustable. But I probably run -/0 wing, unless that gives me too much overstear. No idea at laptimes. Never driven around this track in PCars. Think this could be a track that more or less suits the Aston. Anyway, once I have done some practice I will post the laptimes here.

Done some testing last night and I can do 1:26 for reference, need to play about with downforce and flaps still and do some longer runs to work out fuel strategy...

I have a rough draft of the starting order in the results and standings sheet R3 Qualifying. Captain Slow & Hagster are informed no shows so far and Veasna is no longer in the league. Please plan on getting into discord a little earlier so we can finalize and confirm the order before the race.

Round 3 grid will be determined as follows:
1. Reverse grid of drivers who completed (finished) Round 1 and Round 2
2. Reverse grid of drivers who completed (finished) one of the two previous rounds
3. All other drivers

I take it we can't use the kerb at the last 90 degree right hander? Since we then exceed track limits? And so far I am running 1:27,9 with loads of oversteer -_-'

Yep, keep 2 wheels inside the white lines at all times :)

managed to run 3 1:27.060 in a row, with a full tank and hard tires.
Was really interesting to have 3x the exact same time, with varying sector times and different mistakes :p
Still struggling with the tires a bit, the left ones go up to 110C and the car starts slipping a bit. Feels weirdly better on cold tires...

Did minor setup tweaks, I think I'll be horrible on the straights, the ginetta is generally not the fastest in top speed and I had to slap on a bit of downforce to keep it pointing forward in the corners.
Some of the turns are a b*tch on exit or mid corner weight transfer, car is somewhat twitchy there.

I think my race pace is currently 27s to 28s.

Gotta check my fuel consumption a bit, I think I might be able to just top off with 5-10L on my stop. Full distance run to come, against the AI.


Edit: here are the 3 consistent inconsistent laps, 3x the exact same lap time, 3x totally different mistakes, even dealing with a slow down when overcooking the 3rd lap
