S3 is, but S1 and S2 are fast, narrow and bumpy.. I find it quite tricky. Unfortunately I won't be at home whole weekend, so no practise any time soon :(

In theory this is the closest track in terms of car performance we go to all season. Z4 should be quickest in S1, The Aston in S2 and the RUF in S3. Looking likely that whoever leads into T1 will have an advantage all race as it's very hard to overtake cleanly. Going by leaderboards, pole time is likely to be in the low 26's or possible 25's depending on how much we lose through track conditions.
Even if it's half as good a race as Hockenheim was I'll be more than happy.

All round the circuit! It's a jack of all trades car.

Last corner is an absolute bitch to time right in iRacing. Not tested it in PC yet. A medium to high downforce circuit I think..

I really like Donington and I'm pretty familiar with it. There should be some nice, close battles, as no car is OVERPOWERED on this track. Looking forward to have a great race, as on Hockenheim!

This time, I'm aiming for the top! :sneaky:

Once I bag a setup from someone (cough cough @Yorkie065), I should be able to join.

I guess this time I won't be racing at the front this time. Did some quick practise and seeing the TT times, I never gonna achieve that sadly. But I'll try my best. Also welcome to @Yorkie065 (long time fan of yours on youtube) and @F1-Masa

If only this was possible for longer than a five lap race... @Browneskiii

Lapping in the medium to low 1.28's around here on race fuel. Not tweaked the setup yet, quite happy with the default aero balance, think 2nd, 5th and 6th gear need a little tweaking. Apart from that I've not had any issues with overheating of the tyres etc. I've got quite a good flow around here, not sure how fast I'll be come race day, but I like this track.

Btw, I'm not the only one who doesn't know where to turn in for the final corner, am I? Every lap I just turn the wheel and hope I don't end up cutting the corner.. :D

Yep the last one is a gamble. If Im not understeering too deep in turn in I usually understeer on far exit. T1 is also hard to take it right

The only way I've found decent speed going through the final corner is to run wide on entry, then power out down the main straight.

Also for T1, come over onto the left as far as you can and hit the apex really late. It's a horrible corner because it looks like you can take a lot more speed than you actually can, fun track nonetheless.

I hate the bump just at the braking point there. But you can also get good line and lap time with different lines there. Also good ovetaking spot if you go all to the left and the car behind will go yolo there in turn in. As the circuit os quite bumpy it will be about consistency and trying not to bin it somewhere and spin out.
