AOR iRacing GTE League - Season 5
Brands Hatch Circuit: GP

Welcome to the UK! Another place with narrow, bumpy tracks. Just here, everyone drives on the wrong side of the road.
For better visibility, this post is aligned with the British seating position. Weird, isn't it?
Anyway, here we are in AORs home country, a place were fries are chips and chips are crisps and stuff is eaten with vinegar.
Enjoy the actually really awesome British answer to the cork screw, the most modestly named Paddock Hill Bend.

I'd need a ton of practice for this one, as the circuit never suited me. But there's Daytona on the weekend. So practice will be less than needed.
Hope to not fall off track and expect to cross the line even further back than normal.
Still, looking forward to this, as at some point I just have to learn this track

Also never raced here before on iracing. And with focus being on daytona 24 this week, this race will certainly be very unpredictable.

Out of curiosity what times are you doing? Some of the guys today were doing mid 19s.

So far my BLs are 19.8 in practice and 20.6 in race (half tank/damaged car). Can't remember track temp though

haven't done any laps yet. spent last night taking my wheel apart to change the shifter module which lost a spring, but was fighting a screw that decided to screw me by not unscrewing.
Will report the slowest lap times tomorrow :)

Does anyone also get front aero damage when going over the t1 exit curbs? i consistently get like 30 secs of optionals. Laptimes should be low 19's for me

take a wide entry and avoid the inside kerb at turn 1

down to mid 21s with fuel, but average laptime is higher. consistency is nowhere to be found. to many opportunities to bin it. also, track feels really slippery despite modest temperatures around 32C track.
This will not go well.

Unrelated to brands but good luck to everyone who managed to survive lap 1 of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona sponsored by Rolex, especially the VEC guys who're in the same split as
we are

Thanks ;) Went well until H+3 for my car when a GT3 forgot he had a spotter :mad:. I noticed your name when you connected but what's your team?
