"Round 7 - Zhuhai GP

Welcome to Chinas southern coast and the city that translates literally to "Pearl Sea".

The Zhuhai circuit, designed by the same team that brought us the circuit in Adelaide, promises exciting racing.

We are expecting clear conditions for the qualifying and haze for the race."

Maybe it's just me but I don't find 'the world's most boring track' that bad to drive on. The car feels nice on heavy and light fuel but it's much slower on heavy fuel - I struggle to get 36s yet in time trial mid 34s are a breeze.

Yeah, practice race is on when the champions league is so i won't be there. The Audi is gonna struggle here against renault ferrari and lambo. If the update comes before next race will be interesting to see how the maclaren improves. This track is ok to drive, some nice mid speed corners but lots of heavy braking zones. It's also a track that punished you if you run off / go wide. That last corner is hairy :)

have been getting mid 34s no problem in my initial test in TT also.

I went again and was suddenly getting mid 35s in the lobby on 60l of fuel. Feel comfortable with the car but I struggle to find consistency with this track - I don't really know where to break to be honest.

The turbo cars really dont have any advantage at this track with it been low altitude. Did some testing in the N/T cars and was quicker in the r8 and lamdo.but then when we go to Bathurst with it been at altitude the likes of them will be down on power by 10/15 hp and will struggle it's the one thing the game does good.

The people that live in America won't be able to join the race room, because the patch deference. For me that sucks I'm going to loose precious points. That's no fault of mine, so far I have not missed a race.
