Welcome to Zolder!

A short and narrow track in the Flemish part of Belgium. It's a challenging track that doesn't really provide easy overtaking opportunities. Last time we ran this track we had rain during the race, which resulted in a brilliantly executed strategy for the race win in tier 1. This time the weather doesn't give the opportunity for those kind of strategy calls, as we will only see some heavy clouds but not a single rain drop. However, the mandatory pitstop can still be a crucial factor in this race due to the few overtaking opportunities.

The driver briefing will be posted as soon as possible.

Race: Heavy cloud
Qualifying: Heavy cloud

Not one of my more favourite tracks but at least I know it well from project cars 1. Weather will be interesting though.

The big question though.... Who is coming second this week? We all know @jornzoet has it won already lol

Created an online lobby simulating race conditions. Anyone is welcome to join, I'll be online for about another hour.

Update: Lobby closed but hopefully reopen in a couple hours as real life has decided to get in the way lol

:ROFLMAO: Exactly. P2 it's like a win.

I'll practice tomorrow. I'm not sure if I tested this track in other games or it's my first time. Maybe I'm thinking in Zandvort, not Zolder :ROFLMAO:o_O

One thing I've noticed around here is overtaking is tricky. Going to really put an emphasis on pit strategy.

My default setup pace was good I think so once I tweak it a bit I think I could be on for a good one as long as I don't spin or mess up in the the pits.

Anyone willing to share what race and quali times they are getting?

After about 20 minutes practice i can do 34s for race pace but that can definitely be improved
I was similar. 34s area without really pushing the limit of the car, I actually set 3 totslly identical laptimes in a row which I don't think I've ever done or seen before lol

I'm expecting the times around here to be tight.

This track is super fun! Only thing I don't like is the kerb in the chicane. It's weird to catch it and start to flying :confused:

Qualy runs on 1.32.5 Soft tyres. I think it's a good time, but it's not enough yet.

I’m doing 1:34’s mostly on race pace and haven’t done too much quali but best so far is a 1:33.2, car still feels too bouncy in places but just right most of the lap, so still tweaking for now.

Like dethomas I won’t be on for 7 but definitely can be before ten - was trying to practice on my own online last night and it kept kicking me out, and again was two seconds slower than my offline pace, so I’ll try and join tonight and see if I can sort it. If I can’t though, I’ll sadly be done with it I think. It’s just so much work for no reward now, it’s stopping me enjoying racing at all and I can’t be having that.

Just heard that my upgrade to fibre broadband is going live on Wednesday, so I have no idea if it’ll all be good by then, won’t have happened yet or will happen in the middle of the race, as it could be any time it switches....! :LOL:
