Never been quick here, always been confident though.

Also who else here actually permanently uses a controller? Or is it just me?

First go ever round this track practicing tonight and liking it, set up feels good and just need to fine tune now to get few more tenths.
Hopefully should be right up there this time.

Nice, I am 1:37's at the moment so getting there. Keeping control of tyre temps for the full race will be crucial....
Not done a full race run yet but it seems ok on the hard tyres on 15 laps.

Just checked YouTube, the quick times are 34,'s and high 33 but in pc elite league so a bit to find yet.

You guys had me worried here. I did full race distance last night and was only managing 2:01:s but just realised it's the international and not the GP circuit

Ha:rofl: I can remember the days I used an ironing board, use to put my weights on the legs to stop it moving:p surprisingly sturdy. Use to have a play seat challenge to great value for money (y)(y)

Ha thats it, dumbbells on the legs.
The play seat is ideal for me with limited room.
