has anyone done any laps in the wet round here, im currently doing 1:28.3 in the wet and low 1:21 in the dry
The wet is trickysince we have the Live Track 3.0. The first lap you do in the wet will most likely be the fastest as the rain will start to gather on track. 1:27.6 is my best wet lap in free practise and 1:28.5 in an online lobby with only me in it.

qualy lap I did was in the 19's didn't really test for race pace. Wet is hard to say with this game because the conditions change everytime. Best I did was 1:25, but mostly in 26 and 27.

Sounds like a plan (y)

Big problems with temps in the wet. Tyres are around 40C for most of the stint. Didn't notice to much difference in grip except for the first 2 laps. After that there is more rain and colder tyres but the feeling of the car stayed roughly the same.

Just a little heads up about the weather tomorrow:
Since Pcars2 have Live Track 3.0 the weather will be different between sessions. With that I mean that I can have 2 different sessions with the same weather settings, rain and overcast, but the transition can be at different times. I just had a test on my own where the rain didn't stop until lap 34 and the track was very wet for the rest of the race. I was alone and ~15 more cars will of course help drying the track up. Just want to warn you that you might need to pit for more wets so don't take for granted that the pitting for dry tyres will come before the end of lap 38 (last lap to pit for mandatory pitstop). Don't want anyone to only have a strategy to go for dry and then realize that they need wets (y)

@YabbaTheHutt
I witnessed that in tonights practice race.
Past 2 practice sessions I solo'd, my tyres were depleting rapidly. But in tonights race, they took a little longer so I thought i'd see if I could ride out the whole race on 1 set of tyres.
Noticed a big difference from old to new tyres as @abr_8082 and I were beside each other at one point, and acceleration + speed was all in new tyre favour. Practice was benficial for me :D

Looking forward to tomorrow, good luck lads!

Well I'll risk for the chocolate biscuit tonight and keep to my ambitious strategy I have practised ? my quali pace is low 19s high 18s in online mode. So hope that is top 3 pace.

Want to be at the front for race in these tough conditions

First lap in the wet I got 1:27.7 and then after 2-3 laps, I'm down to 1:29.0 for about 15 laps. Then I get slower and slower...

For me, I noticed when the track became overcast, and water was being thrown off the track. Lap times would improve. It'll just depend on what kind of weather the game wants to give us tonight.
