Heavy Clouds to rain will be interesting, especially turn one as the camber to the inside usually causes puddles to form if I remember correctly. The corner at the end of the second straight is tricky and the final corner is an absolute ba****d, annoyed its dry as I feel in dry would have had good pace....now where is that Nurburgring set up?

on my testing, the main tricky area in wet is at Brundle - Nelson; car can get loose depending on your approach/braking in the wet. turn 1 (riches), is an issue only if one is too aggressive on throttle (in rain).

What puddles? Seriously I had no problem at all.
We races on worse tracks witch rain this season.
I know the weather can change quick in real life but this bs, practiced for nothing.
Should wets overheat during practice race, then we should also call conditions undrivable

@Leck3000 that is what I took from @Michel--NL message and I am fine with that, done some practice last night, consistency will be the killer here with a number of tricky corners. Managed 48/49 in dry and 54/55 in wet but keeping it there is the harder part.

I haven't had a chance to practice this at all yet and a track i am very unfamiliar with. It will be a panic practice session after work.

Most people don't like the track, I do like the track, but somehow I can't get an normal stable setup and sliding in most placed.
Just going on cruise control tonight :)

I feel i will be the same, gentle pace just to keep it clean and make it to the end. I had such a bad race at Daytona, 4 pit stops due to 4 crashes and not very good pace i need to redeem myself and regain some confidence.

Anyone for a practice session starting around 6pm GMT?

I won't be able to make the race tonight.. Got a meeting at work that collides with the race - hope you all have a good race! A bit of good news from me: after transplanting the wiring from my old G27 pedals, the G29's are running problem-free again!
