Have absolutely no idea on what to expect from this track. Haven't driven it since Grand Turismo 6 on PS3 and I haven't played that since I bought my PS4 in May of 2015...

Really enjoy the final sector of this track due to the high speed corners but I cannot do the first two to save my life, needless to say I will be doing a LOT of practice over the weekend..

nice little practice session with hayc to night, we will need at least one pit stop heavy wear rate and overheating tyres.
1:01:s for me until the tyres overheat then it's not so easy...

I think this will be a very fun race, tyre wear is gonna be key.... I can't wait. I can get a low 1:01 lap but it's extremely tough on the tyres.

Haven't heard from the other coordinators. I did a test race on my own and had no problems with weather or time. Yes, the tyres overheats but I didn't loose any time because of that. Most likely the race settings will stay at 59 laps and race start at 15:00.

After about 10 laps my rear left is 130C and my left front is 125C. I haven't noticed any big difference in grip or time drop. The temp gradually get lower the more wear you get but it won't go under 120C in the back. Think this is the same for everyone ;)

I'm running about the same temps too, the only time I have a hard time is at the top of the hill sometimes the car wants to come around when I'm pushing it but all and all it's not to bad. I don't know if anyone will be able to go with out stopping.

If you are a daredevil you'll take a chance on no stop...think that will be very hard to pull off.

@YabbaTheHutt I'm very sorry for how late this is but my friend has broken her leg, so I'm taking her to the hospital right now and I'll be staying there (at Uni so she has no family here to stay with her) so I won't be able to make tonight's race. Hope you all have a good race and I'll see you next week.
