Welcome to the Redbull Ring!

A track that will favour the turbocharged cars due to it's high altitude, roughly 700 meters above sea level, and located in the Styrian mountains. This makes for some great scenery and big elevation changes. Additionally the track features some long straights and heavy braking zones, so overtaking is definitely possible. During the race we will have nice summer weather with just a few light clouds to block to sun. Qualifying will be even better with no clouds whatsoever.

Race: Light Clouds
Qualifying: Clear

Anyone willing to share race pace or know what a decent race pace is? I've already been practicing a little but I'm feeling quite slow.

I had an hour lastnight and got down to a low 1:30 on 100ltr, for myself im aiming for 29s race pace, I’m sure some of you guys will be around the same as their is not much difference between the tiers

Same here. Managed a 1:30.0 after an hour's practice with race fuel. Probably won't get any quicker though. Usually the more I play with setup the slower it goes. Am in the Lambo by the way (non-turbo).

Yeah mate best not to mess with it, did a 29.9 in 1 lobby with some guys then a 30.1 in another with @danjbirch so on par with you, had 1 quail run so far just with my race setup and managed a 29.6 but that should come down with tweaking to maybe a Low 29 or should I dream of a 28o_O As for the race I expect the times to drop a little maybe? Mid to high 30s low 31s with other cars in close proximity.

Seems I lied. Actually managed a 1.32.0 (not 1.30.0)!! :(. Gone a little quicker today (31.6) but still not quick enough. Much work to do.

It’s still a beast down the straights like the amg but I stay with it at RBR

I cant get my big bmw round the first corner without spinning so you may have to look out for the boat facing backwards

I’m going for consistency over quali pace here in the Lambo, managed a low 1:30 on light fuel but haven’t bothered with a quali setup as any changes I made from my race setup just made me slower. Actually love this car here even though it struggles with the altitude, just goes nicely, you have have to drive it like you hate it, awesome combo :p

I have one goal for this race... To make I past lap 5 with no incidents involving other cars, killer kerbs or the wall.

@Traels I had to laugh at your stream of road America... "oh nooooo archies in the wall" lol

Idk about this race I'll try and do it. I will inform you if I won't be able to, I have a sinus infection from allergies and a cold, it feels miserable.

I Am not looking forward to this race. Even with my hard tyres up to temp I still have no grip at all, I think I have got to used to the softs this season
