As for my race, I never felt comfortable with the slow corners, probably after buggering around with my setup too much, and qualified 2nd last. At one point about a third of the way into the race, I overtook a bunch of cars with the boost, but then I lost the rear trying to negotiate the upcoming slow corner, and had a slow spin that left me at right angles to the track, where I collected a few cars. Sorry about that! That left my steering bent, so I pitted for suspension repairs and came out as the last of the LMP1s, lapped by the leaders :(

The rest of the race was largely uneventful, except for trying to finish within 10 seconds of Bacchulum, who I knew had a track cut penalty. I was just within the 10 seconds, but in the closing laps I caught up to a couple of GT3s which saw my gap stretch out over 10 seconds. Once I passed them, I was able to close the gap up again, and managed to finish 6.7 seconds behind Bacchulum.

Managed to grab third in qualifying with a pb for me.  Got the jump at the start and was able to power past Killa before the first turn and slot in behind DC.   But that's pretty much the last I saw of him as he just started extending the gap from there.  Spent the first half with Killa right on my tail.  This track was all about hitting the braking point and getting the power back down again on exit which i was able to do pretty consistently.
Pitted at lap 15 but over shot the pit entry and grabbed a bit of sand.  This slight delay no doubt allowed Killa to jump back in front.  For much of the second stint I had Russ behind and was deploying my same consistency tactic until Killa had an off.  Got a tap from Russ toward the end which I think was a missed brake marker but kept going and shortly after Joe suddenly appeared.  He was pretty quick and eventually got me at the 2nd last turn.  (yes, I did leave you room as I thought you were diving in pretty late).
From there it was just keep it together to come home 3rd.
LMP1's were good for me, they get held up a bit in the tight stuff but no issues.

Didn't do as much practice as I would normally, with Battlefront being released and all. Learning the track and getting a set-up was done during the practice session hence the reason I made a bad move on a GT3 and sent us off. Just used the default set-up with minor changes to aero and gears. In the race I lost my groove particularly around lap 10 or so and made a few mistakes giving me cuts and a penalty. Close racing to begin with but as usual I ended up lapping alone and trying to pass GT3's safely. While out of the grove I started to kill the tyres so pitted early and seemed to help me get back into it a bit. It was good lapping with diehard when he caught up after the disco, but that didn't last long. Nearing the end I realised I didn't put enough fuel to begin with and had to make a second stop costing plenty of time, couldn't find my notes from previous rounds I was short about 10L. Excellent racing and good fun as always, I'm headed back to work today so will miss the next one. Hopefully there's a bit more racing before Christmas...

Yep, I'll see how the timing works out holiday/Christmas wise before the next season proper starts, but there will always be at least some fun runs.

. I was getting loads of stuttering which was distracting me and I couldn't see why. My memory CPU and GPU usage seemed normal, but it is a pretty hot evening here so it could be time to update the cooling in my PC. I was also running Z1Dash for the first time with the AC app which provides it additional data so I did think maybe it was that, though I had no issue during the entire practice when it was running.


That's the fall creator update, its crap, causes sssssstuttering, wont really notice it on practice server with only a few cars , lots of posts about it, Only way I can alleviate it is by using NVidia driver 388.00, but its still not the best, not even vsync or fast sync totally fixes it  would think I have a 960 not a 1080ti since that update :(

All I can say id roll back if you can,  I unfortunately cant because I did a clean install with FCU included :(
I Reinstalled 387.92? (last of the 387's) after a DDU, the 388's weren't nice to me either. Also I've blocked the fall update so still on regular creators atm.

Car was decent didn't really get a clean lap in qual. Got a good start and took the lead and managed to pull a gap to diehard until I reached traffic in all the wrong spots again lol and somehow managed to get rear ended under brakes going up the inside of a car damaging my rear wing so the car was pretty tailey after that and by then kcender was in p2 and all over me but I was able to hold him off by using my kerrs down the straight, was a good battle and was interested to see how it would work after the pit stops but as soon as I entered the pits it killed my game lol so ahh well shit happens :)
do you even motorsports?

https://www.geforce.com/drivers do the manual driver search.
DDU first http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
Do a custom install, and only install the driver, physx, and audio if you need it for your monitor speakers.

You may have trouble finding Nvidea Control Panel after the driver upgrade Phil, but do not panic there is work around.

Mine did that too. Even if you relaunched it, it would crash and disappear from the right-click menu. It's fixed itself now though so I guess due to a driver update.

Freezer was coming closer to DC and me before the 'Go' from DC. I was going 126 and Freezer 132 at this point in time. There was a tiny delay in reaction time on my side, but Freezer didn't seem to have that. The result is just logical, he was passing me way before turn 1. Seems like I've made the mistake going exactly as fast as DC.
We've discussed that extensively, if the field is stretched and guys go at different speeds before the 'go' the few meters you gain as a result of your qualy time don't mean much.
Anyway I was able to go faster than him, but paranoid about about getting him involved in an accident after me turning him around at Paul Ricard. He was very fast on the straights, but I was a bit better on the brakes and in some turns. However, I didn't get an opportunity for a clean and safe pass.
Going into the pits one lap after him and coming out in front I was able to build up a gap, but later I messed it up twice, went off track and Freezer, Joe and RussG slipped through.
I managed to close the gap again and overtook RussG...so I had Freezer in front of me again.
Well, we were on the very last laps and then RussG made an attempt to pass me on the inside of that tight right hander before that very fast sweeping left hand turn.
I was going race line a tad more than a car length behind Freezer when he hit me behind the rear wheel and turned me around.
It's disappointing being taken out like that, as I'm obviously trying to win the series.
RussG, you've asked me  whether I watch car races, yes mate, I've done that extensively...and I'm very confident that the race line was mine. You were too far behind to have a serious chance of a clean pass there. If I remember correctly I've had you only once sort of close behind me before. That was in the Escorts at Nurburgring...and you were running into me twice in two consecutive laps at the same spot. I was able to stay on track so I haven't said anything...anyway, you may understand that this worries me.
It was fun racing with Freezer so closely...just a bad outcome.
