Massively dislike this track. Car set-up feels horrible for mine but that just seems to be the track! Managed a 48.4 at the end which isn't too bad considering everything, but very inconsistent. Cannot get any traction at Bus Stop or La Source, the downhill right hander is a disgusting corner and I seem to be 10 - 15 mph slower through Pouhon. Rest of the track is pretty much a boring full throttle.

Yep I am also not a fan of this track. Did a social today and confirmed that I have no pace at all. Change of setup to come but don't think it will help. Looking for rain!

Qualifying pace seems really bad for me with a lousy 46.9 after taking the fuel out for my first quali attempt but I can't see me finding a full second, maybe half or just over. Been working hard on my setup for the last couple of nights and I think my race pace shouldn't too bad but only tomorrow will tell. Kinda frustrated with finding time on the setup as very little seemed to work for me and I feel Iam pushing hell for leather taking the corners perfectly but to no avail in terms of lap time. Setup does feel good now tho so hopefully it will prove me wrong in the race.

High 46's for me but 47.4 primes. Pete, Ali and myself are about the same. Going to be mighty close midfield. I wouldn't mind rain!

Expecting to be 2 seconds a lap off the midfield here. Don't know why mind! Is manual gears a huge advantage here?
I don't think so I use manual and I am way off the pace and have tried lots of different setups but just can't get the car to do what others seem to. Hey at least we can race each other at the back maybe lol.
