Pit-Entry
For Sakitto we decided that the driver can use the second pit entry (blocked by the cones). The game will not penalize you for taking this entry.
We ask every driver who is going to pit to flash their lights on the straight just before the left hander to warn the driver behind him.

Haven't done any laps yet. Will try tonight.
If I'm not mistaken, this track was the TT track for AOR some seasons ago... If that's de case, then is a awesome track ;)

I just made a full race simulation. There are some dangerous puddles in the worst possible places, even in wet or dry. Because after the rain ends, in the dry racing line we will have the same puddles in almost the same size during the whole session. And the temperature of the air and the track are sooo tricky, as well :)
But Sakitto is one of my favourite track (even if we call this Suzuka :) ), so I'm really waiting for it. Start from the middle of the field won't be easy, but we'll see :D

What times are you guys doing in the wet?
I think, not the best :unsure: Atm my best is about 1:51:7-1:52:3. Depends on the amount of fuel and the condition of the track. However, you have less and less fuel, but the track is getting more wet and puddles are "borned" in the first 5 laps, so the times not really can improve. And the AMG has terrible understeer in rainy conditions...

How are you guys looking for fuel?
I think with a full tank in the audi I can do just over 40 laps

I think you get 42 laps to a full tank in the lambo you need to add fuel in your pit stop.
How are peoples wet tyres lasting for them.

Front tyres are soooo used after 15 laps, maybe last 23-24 laps, but that's the maximum. The rear ones are better, but in the puddles, which was mentioned by @ToM625 and me, they can be dangerous. In the esses the puddle is terrible...

The puddle at the end of sector 1 gets really bad like you are saying I can see that causing some problems throughout the race

Hi @willyblackhamer I won’t be able to participate in tonight’s race.
Sorry for the late reply. I think I’m getting the man flue. Hopefully I’ll be ready for next weeks race.

Have a nice race guys

Yeah, seems like the rain stuck with us for 2/3 of the race.. For me it's okay with some unpredictable weather.. Seems to be like that in real life as well.. What was more annoying was the big puddles.. It felt like someone was hiding in the puddle and decided our destiny tonight.. In the lead with 4 laps to go and a gap of more than 40seconds to P2 I was out of the blue thrown into the barrier..
Completely damaged aero, cooler, suspension.. Could hardly manage to get the car back to the pits. When I rejoined the track from the pits my hard tires was gone.. It was like racing slicks in the rain and my pace dropped below what I was able to do in the rain :p

It was an epic race up to the point where the puddles started acting like deamons. I wonder, if the race would have been red flagged in real life.. There was a few puddles covering the entire track and they were deep! At some point I started wondering if it would be safer to go through the grass :p
