Apart from being hit from behind twice during opening laps, this was a nice practice run. Thanks to everybody involved :top:

Well, some stuff to keep the brain busy 'til sunday. Fuel use is tight, tire wear is high and I struggle keeping up in traffic. Thanks for organising this educational session!

Interesting to see so different setups. Some guys ran really low wings, and rocketed on the straights but came to a halt on the turns, especially towards end of the stint. Good strategy to block people behind, but hard one to hang on to the leaders.

Fuel is tight, this session and saturday will serve as reminder for everybody :D Those expecting to run away from the pack on pure speed are in for a nasty surprise after 27 laps :antoine:

To be honest i did not solve too much the fuel before yesterday practise so you are right i was a bit surprised. :smil20: Till the sunday i have to be more clever. The main goal is to make only 6 pit stops. study

Yep, it seems like it will be rather excellent handling of the car throughout the whole stint than straightline speed that will be crucial. I guess we'll see a lot of driving in a pack during the first half of the race, as nobody will want to lead the group and waste his precious fuel.

Thank you Timo. Grant will be taking care of it on sunday, not sure if he will be there today to practice it also. If not, I count with you :top:

I am unable to apply update at this time.

Anyone ever lost the ability to open File Explorer, Control Panel, Task Manager, or any folders at all in Windows 10?
Had a brief power outage on Thursday. Unable to fix thus far

Nice practice. My steering wheel feedback was oscillating during the whole race. (%$$# Fanatec!...) Hard to keep clean after 2/3 of stint, so I crashed. Smile

Watching the replay, apologizes to Dana and David on T1, suffered some lag and when I turned in, Dana didn't seem to be there - but she was Embarassed

Actually I just looked at the replay and it was Raul that pushed and unsettled me Mad

I got the bit of lag at the push (contact likely causes slight lag) and mistook it with normal lag when turning in.

only thing i learned from that test is that if people drive like that in the race there will not be many finishers,Dave have you got any mirrors on your car ?.

i have set 33 visible cars but many cars in front after start was disapering or going straight into wall at turns, bit hard to decide if it is OK or crash actualy in front, how to splve this problem?

(noticed something like this in past in some races - cart 88 i hav elast in memory)

Tonights session was certainly a good reminder for me about the right level of aggression. Rolling Eyes Else, my setup seems to be set now and I'm ready to rumble! Smile

Fun little test. Crazy ass start! Once we all got separation a bit the car just felt great. I hope on race day there isn't people blocking all the way down to the grass. If you have to block cars on the first stint of the race your gonna have a hard time for 200 laps it's not very smart driving. It's better to just let them by and save your tires its a 200 LAP RACE. I understand it was a practice race so hope everyone has they're head screwed on tight tomorrow. Good luck guys hope to see y'all on the track.
:drink: :cowboy:
