This time Algarve and 2 rainy sessions...

In dry, Audi rules in Timetrial leaderboards, but in rain Ferrari is strong.
It looks to me I will be struggling on this track and Valerio, Achey, Dalingo or Kazer will fight for a win.
I also want to join a fight for a win, but I have to see what my Lambo is capable of on this track in wet conditions.
Valerio, will you post your time in wet when you practice? I don't know when I will find time to practice, I see many occupied evenings in upcoming days :/

Yeah, I know Audis and Ferraris are OP in wet. So watch your mirrors mate :p Yellow divebomb's coming! :p

PS. So how much you like wet? Like 1:52, 1:51 or 1:50? :p

Difficult to say. Every time I restart grip is different. We can plan a free practice session if you like.

But what's your best ever from all your sessions?
My sessions are spontanious, so can't plan exact time to synchronize with you. Maybe Sunday 23:00 cet, but not sure yet

1.50.742 - but I am not sure what happened there... 1st of 120 AI was lapping at 1.46.xxx on that session. Then after restarting, AI laps at 1.54, sometimes 1.50.

Wow... And was that all during first 2-3 laps? I also see that sometimes there are no puddles at the beginning, sometimes this first puddle is on the whole width already.
Anyway, below 1:51 is very nice! This is only in my potential :)

Anyone tested during a weekend? I thought I would be able yesterday, but finally didn't have enough power and I chose going to bed :)

Maybe today, but I won't be free earlier than 23:30, so it won't be long session

It seems that there will be a lake, just outside the pit exit. What's the rule for cutting the pit lane white lane? Do we have to go through the puddle, or can we safely ignore the game warnings for crossing the pit lane exit?

I read in other forums that Stewards want to disable pit lane exit warnings

It was ok. Most likely there will be a tyres change so pitting too early / too late could definitely affect the race this time.
There's an unavoidable lake on pit lane exit which will make you spin no matter what. Same goes for the puddle at T3 towards the end of the race.
