Normally a track I'm good at just need the game to actualy work properly this time and not give me the brakes from an F2 car.

Any hope I had of Catching @Maxxwil or winning the championship has gone now so just need to concentrate on keeping 3rd place and hopefully impressing the special guest commentator. :p

One of my favorite tracks. Love the flow and speed. Feels so good when you nail it!
I used to have a decent pace around here. Really excited about this one.

For some reason, my FFB is incredibly tough on this track. Just did a couple of laps in TT and my arms are done o_O

I think you impress him by turning up. Meanwhile, any pace I have is greeted with derision :)

Don't feel very fast round here after my first practice laps its a bit of a weird one because the track is so narrow so you feel like your right on the edge all the time then you cross the line and it says 1.28.0 and you think what I was right on the limit that lap I'm still not even in the 27s. :p

I can't always get in the 28s so you think that's bad?

My fastest was 1:28.0 but now my best are always around 1:28.2 or 1:28.3. I did like a couple hundred laps though, and became very consistent in race conditions. The tyres don't die too quickly but they remain around 100° all the time. Thankfully though, I don't slide around everywhere like Singapore or Monaco as the temperature vary between sectors

Unfortunately, I will not be in the race because I am coming back to school from the winter break and I have a lot to learn

Last week I put in about 250 laps in practice. Most were race runs, but I did some quali runs as well. Managed decent times. Was set to do a 27.0 but I cut the last corner somehow...
Love this track. I just hate the bump in the last corner, always puts me off. Very easy to bin it there..

I usually don't do that many laps. I just really enjoy this track, and i felt like my pace was pretty good here, so i wanted to make the best of it :D
That's the first time I do that many laps as well, but I was tired of struggling like crazy on thie awesome track. For the last corner, I hug the left side to avoid the bump, otherwise you need softer suspensions, but it unsettles your car for the esses
