I will be trying this out for the first time later this evening! The RUF may well be ruined by the end of it!

This one's gonna be fun... :lol:

Just one question... Pit stops...
What's the deal with exiting here?
If we wait til the end of the solid line, it cuts the first corner, gonna get penalties a lot lol

That first corner is going to catch so many out! It took me about 5 laps to realise why I was getting a corner cut penalty!

Yes, the pit exit seems to be a big bug. Will test it under race condition to see if there is a penalty. In quick race mode I got a penalty every time I went out from the pit, no matter how much I tried to stay inside the yellow line.
Anyone else noticed this apart from me and @Slacker_1980 ?

I think will be a mess, my goal for monaco is finish race without damage, in this track the worst opponents are barriers and walls :banghead:

Well I have had to change camera view for this track to bonnet which made it easy to drive and also changed my DOR to 500.

I got also track penalty when I leaved the pit. So we need to arrange a new strategy when the driver is leaving the pits.

I've tried several times to exit the pit without 5 seconds penalty for Speed Limit. The slowest I went was under 50kph and it wasn't enough!!! Will take this with the other coordinators to come up with a guideline as @Joost suggested.

When comes to lap times I'm down to 1:39,8 with about 40L of fuel, could possibly get it down a little. But there is also the factor on how big risk you want to take since this is such a punishing track...

Didnt get on last night, I was too busy with Twilight Princess!

Plan on giving it a go tonight, though I dont hold much hope for doing well after the first two weeks.

How are people finding tyre wear?

Tyre wear looks really good. This is in the night with cool temperature so my problem has been getting enough heat into the tyres... That is easier to fix than tyre wear ;)

Well I'm definitely not going to be anywhere near winning this one. Cant string two laps together before totalling the car and on top of that my times are slow and tyres are overheating lol

Just did a short session round here and I have to say that this track is a bitch. When You exit the You have to go straight out into the traffic, which is not good and that first corner is rather tricky. I did get a 37.9 and 38/39's pretty easy but it was always with a big risk of hitting something.

Pit exit I can see being an issue in race condition. Going to require a bit of common sense if you spot someones in the pits and be prepared in case they swing out in front of you. Also those coming out the pits should be aware of fast cars approaching and attempt to avoid collisions.

Ill just stick to bouncing round the track like a pinball lol
