did some running here last night - best times: sprint race fuel 1:54, qualy probably 1:52/3
very dangerous track - even with only three cars in a 20 minute race, we had several incidents, all of which resulted in major damage - and please note, the hay bales do not disappear off the track for some time, so don't be surprised if you come round a corner to find one sitting on the racing line ;)

Tested feature race conditions. Hitting high 55s no idea if that's good or bad. Apart from the hairpin turn I'm actually liking the flow of the track. Can see some incidents happening though as the kerbs are lethal.

How do you get out the pits without damaging the front? I can't get out of the pits with less than 5 front damage lol

The season track conditions did get tested didn't they? So far it's been in between softs and hards and now softs that don't even get to temperature lol

No idea on fuel loads for each race either. This one's going to be interesting.

Can we make it a 3 lap race please. That's the amount of laps I manage before I'm in the wall or going backwards waiting on the wall coming lol

Wasn't even pushing either I was just cruising and I'm still spinning every other lap. Tyres weren't heating up, grip was a bit like catalunya where I'd have the grip one lap and have none the next.

Going to be a loooooooooong night sitting retired in the pits lol

I know what you mean, but retiring/quiting is not allowed.

did a bit more practice late last night. Managed to do a sprint race distance without dropping it. It comes to you eventually.

I just done a practice with my teammate. Used his setup which was far more driveable than what I had. Lowered my laptime a second but still making a few errors. The track is slowly coming to me. Only a couple corners are now killing me.
