I am happy to test that track on a Thursday in the f40, porche and old lambos, but cannot get the link to work, I would test this week if you think it would suit the cars I am running, or I can change it around this week and will run the old cars and this track if someone can post a link that workshttp://www.mediafire.com/file/1fjsb807o9hj0k4/oesterreichring1979.rar
Race 12: Austria ÖsterreichringI'd really prefer this version over the Red Bull Ring.
The layout is more realistic (even if the graphics are bit down) and the cars feel so much better in their natural environment.
We have time to test it properly before that round, too.

On a Tuesday, yeah.Is that official?Bah. All the quicker guys should be lumbered with the Williams. That'll teach you for so damn quick.I'm not one of the quick guys so I'll go with that.
I normally qualify in the mid to low teens.
Race results are better but that's due to consistency, not speed.
So I'll keep my Brabham.

What's ruling out heel-toe would rule that out as well.I used stick with right foot braking, heel-toe downshifts.I think the timings are too tight for clutchless shifting?
If there's any lateral force at all (Aqua Minerali & the kink before Rivazza mainly), the car gets very unstable when I lift off the throttle to apply the brake.
I usually overlap the throttle/brake under lateral load to avoid this.
What I did Tuesday was to either brake earlier of lift and coast before the lateral force came in.
The other technique I used was 'hybrid', left foot brake initially and swap feet half way through the braking zone, when I needed to shift.
But I still had to brake early to give me room to swap feet on the brake so I could use the clutch, resulting in reduced retardation during the "foot dance".
Hence, any use of the clutch on downshifts requires right foot braking and extended braking distances.

Oh, and blue flags were waved every time a faster car approached you, not just for lap down cars.
And in the 50's & 60's drivers would often wave others through even if they were on the same lap!
The thought being they would damage their engine, gearbox & tyres and you would pass them later.
