Welcome to the legendary, Spa-Francorchamps!

Designed in 1920, this track has seen all forms of racing imaginable. A favourite for many, we are sure we'll see excellent battling out of Eau Rouge and down the Kemmel Straight especially. Plus, this race is of course the second 90 minute race of season - meaning the championship leaders will have to navigate the field.

No fear on the weather front as, with a 99.9% accuracy, we can predict a dry race; beginning heavy cloud before a transition to overcast.

Good luck everyone!

As I'm moving this weekend and on Monday / Tuesday I had to start training early to get at least some mileage under my belt. Race pace with full load around 2:20. Light load in 18s. No idea about the tyre wear or fuel load as of yet, hopefully will have the time to figure it out for the Lambo.

No idea, I have only tied the hards. Considering rears go up to 98C, I don't think I could make the softs work.

Hi @poisike78 , as I mentioned at the start of the season I'll not be able to make the race at spa as I'm working Wednesday night. I'll be able to race the last 2 rounds though.

Yes, I have that written down. Thanks for the reminder, I forgot to check my notes and update the first post.

I tried to changed quite a lot of things on the setup, but there is still the same outcome, with my race pace I cannot get under 2:22s... I am afraid this will be long and lonely race for me.

well, it doesn't need to be a lonely race... for example, you could keep @venquessa , @Captain Slow and @poisike78 behind you for the whole race....


... just sayin' ....


:p

Much like @LiboCZ I cannot seem to get my lap times under 2.21 on qualy pace!! Set up of the car feels ok. Best I can. Losing time I think in Eau Rouge and Radion, car is so unbalanced through there its unreal. Lose so much speed by the time I come out at the top. Final corner, bus stop not able to get power on quick enough but can probably get round that with just sheer practice. Car feels ok everywhere else. Just simply not good enough I don't think to get the times down.

One other point I want to make is that a F*&%£%£ hate the track limit rules & penalties on this game. The final left kink in the back straight. If you run wide there it invalidates your current lap that you are on (which is fair enough as you can prob gain an advantage by running wide), but it invalidates the next lap. How can you have gained an advantage for the coming lap when you still have the bus stop chicane to go!? It is so dumb.

Not to mention during a race, when you have to slow up to avoid a time penalty. I cant remember which track it was, but I made a minor error and ran wide onto the gravel. It was horrendously bumpy and you have to get out of the throttle, wait for the car to settle before setting off again. So you have already lost out. Then the game made me lift from the throttle for about 3 - 5 seconds on top of that to avoid a time penalty at the end of the race. The penalty imposed is just stupid.

I don't know why they dont use a system similar to iRacing uses, where I think its cumulative. If you run wide, you get a penalty point, get enough of them then you start getting penalties. Penalty points will be awarded from small to high depending on the degree of corner cutting etc...

Haven't had time to practice, first few laps on and I'm in the 21s and apparently rather good at defending. Lets hope this sticks for the race :p (spoiler alert, it won't)

Sry for my lags :/ Since multiple people complained it was probably for the best that I left the lobby.
Really dont know what was the problem, checked connection immediately after I left - everything perfectly fine. Also was I lagging from the start or just at lap 7/8?
