I haven't done racing round here in gt3 but i predict 2 05
I don’t think you are to much off by that...
I’m looking forward to get some laps in.
Will you share when you know the pace - or keeping that a surprise for the race?

I did my first practice Sat. Night
Qualifying time: 2:05:337

The race is a hole different story. Track starts off cold and starts warming up mid race. I don't know yet but might have to change tires or compromise your lap times in the beginning or end of race depending on whichever tire you choose to start with soft or hard. That's kinda my opinion right now.

I'm awful around here. My quickest time so far is a measly 2:08, but maybe if I learn where to break I'll be better.

Dont know if a setup, car or skills issue but I’m like half a second of to that time.
I’m not sure if the track doesn’t suit the Audi or the Audi doesn’t suit me - but I struggle a bit
Guess I’ll hope for my pace on the long run makes up a bit for it.
Think your team will have a strong race there.

Best I've managed so far is 2:05.20 in Qualy and 2:06 something early in race. Hoping to improve the Qualy a bit but this track is so difficult to go fast round.

I'm a bit bemused. Just watched a couple of hot laps and used them to know what I am doing now. So after half an hour of practice, my time is down to a 2:03.1 in tt. Surely something is wrong.

Times in TT aren't indicative of a lobby i think. I practice ina private lobby rather than offline at all, that might be it

I've practised offline but in the right conditions and have got a similar q time. I'm doing the practice race tomorrow so we'll see if it is a problem. My car felt like a stock car in RBR quali so perhaps you're right.

Hi all due to illness and spending the last few days in hospital I'm not going to be free to race. Hope you all have a good race and hopefully see you next week.
