Welcome to Barcelona, Spain!

When visiting, make sure to extend your stay by a few days and enjoy Spains most visited city.
Don't forget to stop at the Sagrada Familia and admire the breathtaking architecture before heading for more sights, food, beaches, drinks, night life, sports, sightseeing, a day in the aquarium - whatever you're up to, Barcelona has something for you.

This world famous track, in this amazingly beautiful city will host our 2nd special event of the calendar, a test of endurance and consistency in our 2nd 90 min race.
Can you make you way through traffic in this reverse championship grid race while racing into the morning sun?

The weather will be favourable, starting with Medium Clouds that will transition into Light Clouds.

Round 7 grid will be determined as follows:
1. Reverse grid of drivers who completed (finished) at least 5 out of the 6 previous rounds
2. Reverse grid of drivers who completed (finished) at least 3 out of the 6 previous rounds
3. All other drivers in reverse order

I'll double check it before the race but lineups are on the R7 page of results

What laptimes you boys doing, as I can get some good quali times but as soon as I add race fuel the handling goes to pot, to much oversteer and the rear feels saggy lol

I managed 1:46.5 with full tank. But was averaging 1:47s but haven't done many laps and I spin now and again at the left handed after the hairpin

Haven’t practiced yet but 46/47 race pace sounds about right!

@Gav88888 Well, I get those temps with hard tires, so I do not dare to touch the softs xD If it would be 105-110, it would manageble, but 130 is just undrivable. Maybe I need to switch to the Bentley or Caddy...

Tire pressures are 1.76 Bar hot. Running full open brake ducts to cool the brakes and tires as much as possible on the straights. Reduced the front camber and increased caster angle. That seems to make the temp (semi-)stable at 105-110 degrees. Laptimes are 1:47,4-ish. I am so much faster in the Bentley at this track (1:45,2-ish)...

Check also ABS (go high) and toe in to keep temps in check. Join me in the Ginetta :p
