Going by the pattern, that's formation lap crash, turn one lap one crash. So here it'll be lap two where I'm taken out lol

Done some early running and the kerbs are wicked. Didn't do serious laptimes, was just cruising around the track learning stuff. Should be a good race hopefully. It can't get much worse for me this season lol

Welcome to Road America!

The first of the two 90 minute races this season. The current championship contenders might have shown that they have some very good raw pace, this time however, they also need to show that they have the race craft and overtaking skills to work their way up through the field. Luckily for them Road America is very suited for overtaking as it consists out of some long straights with heavy braking zones. The race will start in hazy conditions in the early morning after which the sky will slowly get covered with some medium clouds.

Hazy -> Medium Clouds

I'm enjoying the French snow next week for some skiing. Back for round 5 and hopefully the rest of the season.

Looking forward to the first of the longer races. i already feel like an hour here is quite a bit longer than in the other games i've done leagues in, but Road America does feel safer than some of the tracks we've raced already.
Can we all agree to leave @Archie619 alone this time around? I feel so horrible for him by now. Best of luck mate.

I’ve been both looking forward to and slightly worrying about this one as I’d never driven an inch of it before now, in any car - I really enjoy this circuit though, some of the aggressive turns in the final sector are awesome to chuck the Huracan into :p

Guys, just a quick question. Is this a race with reverse grid. How to proceed it? During formation lap? And you will post the grid order before the race? @Mhill @jwvdg ?

Normally @Mhill will post the grid positions on the psn chat as well as on here.

As the lights go out you safely move to the side of the track and allow the cars to use the middle of the track. You then move away in the order of the reverse championship standings. Just keep a mental note of who you should be behind and when you see them go, just follow.

Usually everyone is in position before the end of the first sector. Once everyone's in the right position it's just the standard aor start procedure.

@Mhill can probably explain it better but that is the basic version lol

Ok, I would practice but definitely not 95mins and then race. So I will make some quick test by myself - maximum 30mins. Thanks anyway.
nothing to say you have to stay for the whole session - up to you, mate
