best track on the game for me by a wide margin. quali pace right now is usually 38.0-38.3. pb is a 37.9 but theoretically i could knock it down to a 37.5 if i had a perfect lap offline. i expect to be at least a couple tenths quicker once i go online. the 3rd sector is just awful here though, i find a way to throw a pb away nearly everytime. the amount of times i've gone into S3 having done a 1:07.5 only to come out and do a 38 is ridiculously cruel. this track is pretty awful for overtaking i found out with neil this afternoon. the only overtakes we had in 2 races was at the end of the 2nd DRS straight and the blind left hander in S3.

Not sure why we need so many breaks...... this is such an enjoyable track, pity about the cutting and extending opportunities

the first 2 sectors must be really nice on the wheel, it doesnt feel like there's many traction zones with a lot of high speed corners. obviously the 3rd sector benefits the pad quite a lot though

Thursday was the first time that I had driven this track without it being a dodgy sprint race. It's very easy to avoid cutting the corners so as I see it, there's no excuses for those who cut.

are people willing to do a 50% practice race thursday? im not online at all today as im living in the library until i finish an essay, then tomorrow is the greatest excuse of all for college kids to drink, followed by a full day of class on wednesday so my practice is rather limited until thursday

edit: scratch that idea, apparently my house has gone over the limit for internet usage. looks like i wont be able to practice online until the weekend

Please, but preferably for Saturday night if that's possible. My internet resets on the 20th so I won't be online until Saturday and I'm planning on being out most of Sunday afternoon. Worst case is I get some practice Tuesday before the race as March is just a hectic time for me
