Lap 1 Penalties

Race 1
Joe ran into the back of Guybrush, and while Guybrush wasn’t impacted too much, I caused a pile up of cars behind Joe, so that’s a 30kg penalty.
Tricky one: Seanus just passed Brad, but then braked when very close to Brad who did move a little towards Seanus. Wheels touched and Seanus went off, but I’ll judge that to be a racing incident because Brad probably didn’t have time to react when Seanus braked so soon after passing.Update: 30kg penalty for Brad.

Race 2
Bird ran into the back of AGK – 30kg penalty.

In the same place as Bird, Bueller ran into the back of Killa – 30kg penalty.

Brad ran into the rear wheel of Bird under brakes. Although Bird was starting to turn in, Brad wasn’t far up enough – 30 kg penalty.

Race 3
Simone ran into the back of Brad – 30kg penalty.

Turned a few laps last night.  This will be a far more technical challenge than Hockenheim which was mostly a drag race!!
Some practice time will be well worth it :)

Shyte, you're not wrong, it's technical all right - and bumpy!  Flying in the last corner at those speeds...farkennel.
There'll be lots of tears here I think.

Big thanks to Bueller for the setup - it has made all the difference, gave me the confidence to push, thanks mate!  I've changed the gearing a bit, the preload to 10nm and the brakes (man I can't imagine how can you stop with such a forwards brake bias!) but nothing else.

I'm wondering what kind of setup you guys are driving...if you don't mind to share, please upload it on the test server.   For example, I remember, Guybrush, you've made a few really good sets! ;)

Well I did say it was a wip lol, that last corner is scary I'm getting wheels off the ground there. I think I'll change to the Fezza though

I haven't really had any time on the track and will only be home Sunday night and then away until race night so I'll see if I can run a few laps Sunday, make some tweaks and then post a setup then.

No truer words has been spoken  ;D

After some practice I managed a half decent lap. Hitting apexes, smooth out of corners thinking "This is a great lap"......only to see I'm 5 seconds off the pace  :o

There's your problem Mael, I've found the quickest way is:

"SHIT! I've missed my braking point!"
"How the f@#k did I hit the apex?"
"Ooohhh, I just caught that oversteer"
(repeat)
 ;) :P

That last corner is a doozy, that rewards courage, bravery and a little bit of craziness.

I've posted a Fez setup on ptracker.  I think I did it right. Haven't ran any laps really but will try to get on later tonight.
