Just had a quick look at Zhuhai.. No laps, don't get excited! I would just like to congratulate anyone using driving line on their win or podium!! it may as well not be night if you use it. Get real guys c'mon. I tried with and without, it's laughable by comparison. It's silly enough using it at all at this level imo (no offence) but at night..!? I didn't even have fog turned on...Moan over.

I have to agree. Having the driving line on in this particular race with these day and weather settings is a huge advantage.

Yeah...this is awful. I can't set one clean lap...and track is so damn bumpy.
Maybe if it was a day time + fog...kinda ok but night and fog on this track...nope..

I don't disagree, but it's allowed for this season and thereby Your choice if You wanna use it or not. I've allready given my view on the general thing. So really, stop moaning and go driving. I'm sure that You'll be as fast as You've been in all the previous races come Wednesday.

Yeah Yeah Yeah. I'm getting a bit tired of hearing the same song over and over. I'm all for banning driving Line in Pro and Elite, but the rules for this season are what they are and You knew that from the start. You also knew that there was going to be night driving, so can We please stop this discussion now. I'm sure there will be some sort of afterrace evaluation and I'll support Your suggestion on banning it for the future. I should probably have been in the Semi-Pro and will likely be there for next season, But I'll still race next season without driving line and NOT moan about the others using it.

I won't use driving line. It's a sin as far as sim racing is concerned. At Zhuhai you can barely see the corner coming compared to using a line, and sometimes not even see around it to the exit! With the line on you see exactly where to go. I appreciate that it's a choice of course. But I don't see the enjoyment of following a line.

Jan, you've escalated this. I haven't suggested banning it. I just pointed out its advantage in this situation! Having never used it, I was surprised to see it had so much impact.

@RGT hayc it's not manatory to practise before the race, it just helps with your consistency during the race. I only did around 45 mins practise for Spa and I drove quite well. If it wasn't for the crash start I'd have finished around 40 secs further up the road.

If you can't make the races then that's different.

Have managed 1:36,1 but there is no real consistency yet. Think I can get down a bit in time with some more practise...or maybe that's just wishful thinking.
