Hey everyone.

Just done a few TT laps, just trying to gauge my pace relevant to everyone else, did a 1:21.9 but at least another 2 or 3 tenths to be found in that. Of course TT times aren't representative when it comes to Grand Prix mode pace but it's nice to know.

Hi soggy my best TT is a 1.21.5 I can do consistent 1.21.7/8 but you are right means nothing for race pace.

Hey guys my best is a 21.6 but I seem to average around 22.0. Agreed that it doesn't mean that much! I find that I lack consistency in turn 1 and the last turn.

Also turn 12 can be a handful, probably need a better setup!

Hoping there is less car-to-car contact in this league than there was in my tier last season.

Qualifying (11th): Thought my lap was fairly quick so was disappointed to find it was only good enough for 11th place, guess we have some quick drivers in this season!

Race (12th): That was frustrating. Lost my front wing on the run down to turn 3 due to lag, which forced me away from my planned one-stop strategy onto a two stop. Then lost it again on lap 11, again due to lag during the host migration (cheers @SoggyCabbages' sister LOL), forcing me onto a three stop. On a more positive note I felt I drove really consistently and didn't really put a foot wrong in that race, plus it wasn't bad pace as shown by my fastest lap. Just a shame I was taken right out of any chance of points due to lag.

Hope the race was more exciting for everyone else lol.

Poor qualifying, crashed out. Poor start, I was too tentative thought everyone would turn into balling balls so I held back. About lap 10 is when my aforementioned sister decided it would be funny to take the ethernet cable out the router, luckily I was invited back and resumed control of my car, the following lap I then got a puncture (lap 12 ish) and had to pit for Super softs, then a mediocre drive home to 11th.

Qualifying (6th): Binned it on my flying lap unfortunately, 4/10ths up on my time in the second sector but struggled keeping it stuck on the track going through turn 11. Banker lap was good enough for 6th.


Race (2nd): Tried to be patient overtaking, sadly someone left the lobby and slipstream bugged out which made overtaking a bit harder. Had a few good battles with FrPhenixFr, tried waiting till the end to overtake as I had fresher tyres but managed to damage my wing with 4 laps to go which was disappointing. Great win by FrPhenixFr & grats on the podium Xterm1n8or
