Great way to celebrate my 200th i suppose lol toyota was great around here it loves the turns! Did more work on the soft tyre and the car has improved but still sketchy as the tyres got a few laps on them, decided to start on the meds since the pace was good enough on them and i knew the car was safe and flexible on the meds no need to take risks. First stint was trouble free i managed to get a gap on the field that i was happy with while negotiating the traffic allowing me not to take risks, i noticed meal start to close in on the soft tyre towards the end of my stint and thought about pitting when he did but wasnt confident enough on the softs so waited until the 20min to go mark and put the softs on and lucky i did because my cars tyres were shot towards the end of the race as it were and there wasnt much more pace to be had from it by the end, which was a bit of a worry as i kept catching the lapped cars in the worst spots making my 6 sec gap to mael disappear with a few laps to go and the the effect on the tyres going offline and slowing down was horrible it kinda made the car feel like it was on ice as the pressures would drop so there were a few challenges by the end of the race but it was all good

Yeah thats what i felt, it just snapped badly but in the previous races i never got that, back to the drawing board lol i did add a click of rear sway bar so that probably is the problem

This was never going to be a strong showing for the toyboatas lol with all the long straights there wasnt much we could do, so it was a matter of circulating and staying out of trouble waiting for a result. Car was a bit average all race and i was hoping once i put the softs on in the final 20mins the car would come alive but it was the exact opposite being a absolute handful lol it was probably the worst car i have driven so unpredictable, on the softs i had a couple moments, 1 on my outlap at highspeed turn in and another on the 2nd last lap again through a high speed turn, the car would just snap like it had no wing was really weird so obviously something was wrong with my set for the race which is odd as it felt okish in prac, not sure how the other toyota boys found the car especially on the softs?. Anyway 4th was ok considering so we shall look forward to some of the up coming twisty tracks

I figured out why my top speed was low, i didnt realise i could control the kers myself so i was just toggling the modes before lol so i enjoyed the extra 20kph this week!
I couldnt really find space in qual to get a decent lap in until my very last lap, so i managed to just get on to the front row with an okish lap.
Got off to a good start and settled into a rhythm straight away on the med tyres, i knew i wouldnt keep up with grat in the porsche on softs but that was fine as i felt strategy may bring me back at the end. The whole first stint was going to plan until my in lap where i got caught up with a lapped car at the 2 fast left handers, i saw the z4 sticking to the race line so i waited till the exit to get a clean run on his inside but he must of lost where i was and turned hard left just clipping my rear quarter as i passed and sending me into the wall, so that cost me 20secs in repairs which was a shame as i felt with the shorter pit stop in the toyota and fresh softs i may have challenged grat in the last 20mins or at least made it a closer finish but ah well had to make do with charging back to 3rd having a nice little toyota battle with meal at the very end

Check your PMsTo my Toyota bros I attached the setup Ill be running it feels pretty good I haven't done a huge amount of work to it but its something lol, you may need to pump the tyre pressures up for the track temps I found 34 hot worked nice and 7th gear may need to be longer.Stracker shows your top speed is "only" 299kph (I can hit 325), but your aero doesn't look overly aggressive in your setup. And you got a 1:59. What's going on there?

Somehow missed this Wally lol yeah I'm not too sure seems like the other toyotas arnt as bad either, I really struggled at silverstone on the straights. Maybe it's my gearing? I haven't tested much and the few things I tried last tues didn't really do anything.

Was quite a interesting race with the strengths and weaknesses of the cars putting on a good race, the Toyota wasn't that strong here with its lack of power so wasn't expecting much of a result lol, but after I managed to pull away from the battle with diehard in the early laps of the race I was able to just keep out of trouble and bang out consistent laps on the med tyres while the leaders were on softs which I thought was odd until I saw them pit twice which wasn't needed with the Toyota as its quite good on fuel and all of a sudden I was right with the leaders for the race win. Was pretty cool to see us all come together in different ways at the race end and surprisingly I was able to grab grat for what I knew was the effective lead after kcenders penalties lol so was pretty happy with all that
Lapped traffic was fine, the LMP cars have so much more grip you can pretty much put it anywhere and it sticks so the gt cars shouldn't worry much and just stick to there normal racing lines and pace, also just because a car is by itself on the track doesn't mean it isn't trying to do some solid laps to make a strategy work so don't be fooled lol
