Looks like I'll be out for a little while. My graphics card as called it a day and my backup (HD6850) just doesn't cut it even at low res and low settings. Can only manage 45 FPS with drops to below 15. Just my luck when we finally have an open wheel season. Guess I'll be stuck on GranTourismo 5, KRP, or maybe GT Legends/Race07 for a little while.

I guess it's an opportunity to get my ClubSport wheel and pedals ready too.

Bad night for me. Feels like something wrong with the car I just have no grip and am being lapped by people I usually race closely with. Didn't do much practice and am using default setup but I didn't expect to be that far off the pace. PLP said I had 15 cuts after just a few laps then stayed at 15 so not sure what happened there.

Bacchulum , how many litres did you need to make fuel as quick as tyers in the pit stop,   I just tested 45l of fuel pit stop and it still took twice as long as the tyers, its probably same for everyone, I just want to be sure so next week I don't lose so much time in the pits

Much the same for me as well Joe... I had 17 cuts and stayed on 17 ???? :o
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

That's bad news. Now is not the time to be shopping for a new graphics card, with prices as they are.

10 secs for tyres and 0.6 secs per litre works out to 16.666` litres.

Yeah, there's something a bit screwy there - nobody cut at all in the race, so it certainly shouldn't be reporting any cuts. I'll investigate.

Hoooooo noooo  its hard!!!  My idea was only one stop,starting with soft tyres and 60 lt of fuel,it was all good until i pitted but after that i could not reason anymore.I spent 45 sec in the pits refuelling (75 lt)and changing tyres(hard).
Then i ended in the middle of blue flags guys and letting wally go through i lost it and ended up on the grass...try to fight.back back my bones...hands...wrists...arms..shoulder and.brain had enough.
TOUGH sport!!!   Thing is i had fun and i would like to try again maybe this time i will last more than half!!!
....off too work!!!!     See ya crazy ppl!!!
Yes...using the clutch was really good fun!!!  Hhaahhaaa

My race graph is fantastic!... :(

At the start of the race I thought "right! I have read that repairs were somewhat fast, so maybe I just click repairs in the pitstop app and forget about it". Bad idea: I actually had no body damage at all and only a missed a gear change two times or so, plus two or three times hitting the limiter. No actual need for repairs. But then I entered my pits and it was like 2 or 3 minutes.... Even more ironically, I forgot to click on the tyres (or maybe I just clicked it again by mistake). So when I got out I had to reverse and get back in just for tyres (another 30 seconds the whole operation)... but then I also got an extra unneeded 30 litres... :(

Oh, well... I guess that's what happens when you have no time at all to prepare for the race ;)

That's a bad experience, Grat. Yes, it certainly pays to test these things first to know what you're up for.


My race was pretty uneventful. I spent a lot of it with either Russ or Keith lurking somewhere in my mirrors. I went for two hard stints, made no mistakes. Let the lead trio of Kcender, Matt and Jeremy past under blue flags a few times.
