I haven't ever driven this track, just went for a 1-hour practice session today with Stable setup. Anyone practiced with the track, wanna chime in on how much I need to up my pace to be competetive come Wednessday?

I have limited practice time until next race, so any advice is welcome...

What are your laptimes currently?
I didn't tried with race fuel yet but I guess we should aim for high 1:43.
Pole should be around high 1:42, low 1:43.

Time trial is a good way to learn a track quickly without much time but you'll need practice in quali and race conditions too.
Especially race conditions.

I'm landing just under 45, after an hour of getting to know the track. I reckon the rest I need to find in setup

Well you are quite optimistic with the pole but with racefuel I think 44´s are quite ok

Yeah, I made my estimations based on my laps in Time Trial.
I've just tested in a race session with Quali and Race (18 laps, full tank) and I still believe the pole should be a high 1:42 / low 1:43.
My race pace is higher than what I was expecting though : My rear left tyre is melting haha.
Anyway, I still think that high 1:43 / low 1:44 as race pace is what we should aim for in Pro (fastest lap).

I bet the pole in Elite will be a low 1:42 and race pace around low 1:43.

That's just my opinion though :D

That's not bad at all if you can do that consistently :)
I'm more talking about race fastest lap rather than doing high 1:43 consistently.

My front left is looking good, around 110/115°.
My rear left is melting. I'm getting 127°C just after the last corner and it then fall down to around 117-120°C during the rest of the track.

It's propably because you understeer a bit in right corners, steering too much IMO.

I'm just in the 1:43's with the Audi, sat #13 in leaderboards- with a significant amount to improve, from my potential being a 1:42:322... I guess we'll just have to see on the day :rofl:

It seems @DANGEROUS GIANETTA made a great laptime in TT... :jawdrop:
I think I could reach 1:42,6xx / 7xx in TT but I reckon, I'm faster when following a ghost.
Doing it in 15 minutes qualification with traffic will be tough, for me at least.:hurting:

Wow, Andreas Hader did an even more insane TT laptime...
I thought I was fast enough for this race hahaha : :blackeye:
EDIT : Nevermind, is in Elite... Dumb me. :eggface:
