I'm really loving this track. I've done a 1:27.8 which I'm quite proud of. I think the front runners (or runner if it's just Drastics) will be a high 25-low 26

Overtaking will be difficult around here. You have to hope someone will make a mistake which I'm sure they will around the hairpins at the end of the lap.

#600th Post ;)

I adore Donington, not expecting a high finish, I just want a consistent race. Last week was a real eye opener at how difficult this is. The Aston was a dream until the lights went out, no idea what happened but I hope I can be more comfortable this time around!

Pretty sure setups are important in all cars on this game tbh. I'm not sure it's AS important in the GT3 cars as in the Formula cars though. But some members have posted setups for their GT3 cars in the setup forum, so maybe you can find a good starting point there.

Quick Last-Minute Donington Briefing, For Some Reason:

Alright guys, I hope you're all ready for the race tonight!

As you have probably realised by now, Donington is a pretty tricky circuit in these cars, with narrow roads and quite a few high-speed bends. Due to this there are several sections of the track where it's difficult to go side by side, and where single-file is preferred, so patience will be an important factor in the race tonight. Don't try to rush your way past people just because you think you're faster - take your time, set up a pass if at all possible, and perform it cleanly. Or put the pressure on and wait for the driver ahead to make a mistake, which is very easy to do around here!

While qualifying will obviously be all about one-lap pace as always, this race will be a test of endurance and consistency as much as (if not even more than) flat-out speed. The race will not get won at the first corner, that's for sure. Whoever is able to keep up a reasonable pace most consistently throughout the race, and make the least mistakes, is likely to come away with a good result. So the track and the car is a challenge in itself, as much as the competitors around you!

So with those extremely wise (but probably pointless) words, I hope you all have an enjoyable race tonight, and good luck!

Pace was there tonight just the consistency killed me and the car letting go after a pit stop with the tires on melt down, Not sure what happened at the last corner lofty you went wide and took me with you ??? Then you disappeared.
