Think I mentioned to you before Bruce, but to be sure, I'll miss this one as I'm going on holiday next Wednesday. Lucky for me the following week is the bye as I'll still be away  ;D

Meh, was sitting quite nicely in 10th or so catching the pack in front and pulling away a bit from those behind when my daughter started screaming for me. Had to pull over (resisting making a joke about penises and vaginas), and came back a lap down  >:(

Just did a few laps here. Pretty fun track. Think I'm getting the hang of this car a bit more. Seems it's more about throwing it into the corners a bit quicker than I was in the last race then throttle control.

I had been attempting to drive smoothly and imitate the faster drivers, but on my last lap, threw it around and dropped 1 sec + on my PB, so we should see some controlled sldes, and drifts!

For sure, that's what I did in the last race; slow and controlled. Did that for a few laps yesterday, then started drifting it a bit more and managed to get into the 1:50s

Never done a pitstop before, better try them out

Awesome fun guys. My first poll in qually. Shame I spun out on the first lap  :o
   

Grats on the pole :)

Are you really congratulating me or making fun of my typo  ;D

Here's a screengrab of me squeezing between Krahl and Grubbert, unfortunately a bit late in the straight, and as it seems the Ferrari needs to brake earlier into the corner they got me again. A couple of laps later I'm pretty sure I had enough speed and time to go through again but decided against it through fear of taking us all out in the corner  ::)

Just been practicing on this Paul Ricard track. It may have taken me 77 laps but I got a 1:53.4 in the Ferrari putting me 2nd on RSR so I'm taking it  ;D

Sounds good. AC has officially taken over my life doing the Tuesday and Thursday races because I never know the tracks and spend a few nights before hand learning them  :o

what about the extreme sun glare?  Last fun race at monza 66 was particularly annoying.It was strange how during practice was ok and then in the race was againg very bright i could not see where i was going,especially corner 1.
I now know to reduce the brightness by pressing page down but thats not the point.Do you guys have this problem?

I had the issue there too but it was because of the time of day set in that first race. That's why practice the second race were okay.

Had a go at Silverstone last night. Took me quite a while to get a complete lap, but managed to get my times down after a while. Not like Guy who popped in for 5 laps, beat the WR in the Ferrari and left....

A load of people joined the server and ended up doing a couple of races... races with random people compared to league races suck huh! Qualified 2nd in both races I did but got taken out on the first corner both times.

Also banned one guy. I was behind him and whenever I got close he'd brake and swerve around then when I got past would tap me from behind. I think he did this 6 times in one race, so once it was over so was he.

Hey Dick, reckon you can do an all black skin with this on the bonnet?  :)

Something like this?



Nice one dude! Didn't take you long. Feels like it needs something on the boot. Maybe this?  :)

I don't know how you guys can drive with those huge FOV's.  How can you feel what the car is doing, visually?

I'm not using the FOV in that screenshot. Took me a second to realise what corner it was as it looks so different.

I used a FOV calculator which suggested 18 degrees or something which just seemed stupid, so I adjusted it until it seemed right for where I was sat which is 40 degrees. Seems FOV only affects cockpit view and I've only been using cockpit view for the last couple of weeks but was instantly faster as like you mention it seemed like I could feel what the car was doing more.
