First time driving the car right now, I'm in the 57s but am really not getting on well with the car at all. I don't know what it is, maybe my driving style, but I can never seem to get the GT cars to work for me in iRacing, forever understeering and just have zero confidence the car will do what I want. Maybe I just need a while to get used to it after driving the beautiful Porsche for a whole season :love:...

From what I did in testing yesterday, I managed a 58 something... I think.

A lot of it depends on track temp. It is surprising how much time you can gain on a slightly cooler track.

Did a lap with the Ford while testing and thought why not upload it and show it here :)
It´s with 100 Usage and Default Morning weather

Laptime: 1,54,919 on 48 L IMSA Race Fuel

I just don´t know why I´m faster with 100% Usage than 20% Usage

(I hope it´s okay that I post a link here)

Yes remember that, was quite bad for me that session, had a optimal of 53,2 but for some reason my tires were dead after the first lap every time

That practice session was very useful.

I think overtaking is going to be quite difficult here. I had a faster @Milligan behind me and without defending, I kept him behind for a good numbers of laps and it was only when I made a mistake did he get past. Likewise when I repassed him.

Really... REALLY looking forward to Wednesday now.

Thanks for hosting! I don't think I've ever had a practice session like that before. These cars are a blast to race in and Wednesday couldn't come soon enough.

Overtaking will be a challenge here so I hope with the reverse grid every keeps their cool and stays patient. Quick question: if there are multiple drivers who fail to record a lap for qually, where do they start and in what order?

They're doubly screwed, because they'll be at the back for race 1, in which case they'll be put in whatever order iRacing chooses (I think it goes off iRacing), and they don't get reversed for race 2. So they will again be at the back. Failing to get a lap in will hardcore suck.

Going to miss Round 2, 3, 4 and maybe 5 since my parents planned a trip without telling me, *sigh* :(
I will report my absence in the thread for those races too, and wish you guys have a great opening round.

I'm sat in the AOR Discord, iRacing channel doing some practice if anybody wants to chat.
