Ah, guys, I reckon the server laps has the 2nd and 3rd split reversed for a few people:
http://52.62.71.102:50041/lapstat?currservers=acserver

The most obvious example is Stan

Btw, blistering 1st split there, mate :)
I'd love to see how it's done!

What, only 1.2 secs up on GB in one sector alone!!
Seems perfectly legit!!
I don't recall finding any shortcuts... *shrugs

You had an good extra percent of grip....
I think you have simply found the optimal line & method through the first fiew corners very well - and that's what I'd like to see.
Unless the whole lap is mis-reported - seeing the other 2 sectors being topsy-turvy .

Stracker splits have always been a bit dodgy IMO.

I've just checked the practice server. It had the wrong fuel rate, 1.5x. It should be 2.5x, which I've fixed now.

If you've done any fuel calcs based on the prac server, multiply your fuel by 1.7. E.g. if you thought a stint needed 80l, make it 80 * 1.7 = 136.

Tyre rate was too low as well.
Noooooooooooooo! :(

The wrong tyre rate is a bigger Noooooooooooooooo - you can calculate fuel after a few laps, but you can't do tyres w/o running the whole stint again. :(

I don't know how bad the tyre multipler was, but I'd really prefer leaving it at the "wrong" setting, otherwise all my testing is out on the window :(

Sorry, my mistake in setting up the server. I don't know who's practised on what settings. The race length is the same as Mugello (although it's not as hot this round), so a similar strategy should work at Barcelona. For what it's worth, I'm able to run the whole race on mediums in the Nissan, just able to manage 15 laps in the first stint with some care.

OK, softs are a no go for qual now with the correct tyre wear.  Just a heads up.

:) I'll have to practice again. Thanks for letting us know Wally and how to calc the fuel.  I like this track it's quite a challenge. Got a bit of everything.  Spa is still probably a fav.

Not sure if it's just me but the new setup with the tyre wear is like shredding the tyres as you drive changing the handling of the car really quickly. I can prob only manage 9 laps at the most with Audi on meds. Tried soft and was down to 91 at the end of the lap and couldn't power on in the final corner. Will sure be an interesting race as may need more than 3 pits.

The softs are pretty much useless. At Mugello, which was the same length and format, people used a mixture of medium and hard tyres. I think everyone pitted twice at Mugello (unless they miscalculated their fuel).

Remember the pit window is between the end of lap 6 and the end of lap 23, to do the two CPS. You can do extra pit stops outside of that as well, if you need to.

If you look at the Mugello results here http://xgnassettocorsa.blogspot.com.au/2016/02/s10r4-gt3-at-mugello.html and click on a racer's name, you can see the tyres they used. Bacchulum in his Audi, for example, did the entire race on hards.

Looks like I'll miss this round as well Wally, between lawn bowls finals and a kitchen reno not enough time in the day.
Should have more time by next season  :) Cheers Dave O.

So having not done any laps probably hasnt hurt me as much. I was surprised anyone could do a hotlap on softs at the race wear rate.
