Congrats. I'm usually a second slower with cockpit cam than bonnet cam. You got all my respect ahah
I'm also slower with cockpit cam. But I like it to have it as near as real racing possible and I have never driven an car when I was sitting on the roof :p
When I just started racing I was using the bonnet cam. I tried it again this season with the endurance, but 2 hours racing is getting very bored with the bonnet cam. In the cockpit you have something to look at ;)

So true, you think the same as @Slicker . I don't mind to use the cockpit view sometimes. But I'm just not competitive enough with this view. And there are pretty fast guys in Tier 2, so I use the bonnet cam, just to not be last lol.

It is allowed to use it...so no problem with that (y) You need to use what you like the most and where you get the most satisfaction from :)

Just a quick note about Tuesday - I am not treating this as a race. I haven't got much time to practice for this race so I will not be fighting for positions with anyone, so it's purely a test session for me.

We are hoping it is more of a practice race anyway and more importantly a test of the lagging issues seen the last few races pal

Been doing a few more laps round Barcelona and got time down to 2.3 sec off my tt time which I'm happy with because I'm using pad and also changed my view to cockpit cam
The change from bonnet to helmetcam is what made me faster.
When you set the camera to look to the apex when turning it's much easier to find the apex.
Also change the FOV with a calculater and in my experience your going a lot faster. Try it.
When you got used to the cockpit or helmetcam.....you never go back!

If it were possible I would do the whole race. I need to practise with the rain

Thanks for tonight guys. I just wanted to get as far as the transition to wet.

Would like a bit more pace, but we’ll see what happens tomorrow.
