[TRACK]

A track for the Merc to stretch its legs!

This is (at least) a two-stopper race. Fuel multiplier is 2.3x. There is no pit window, and no restrictions on what you can do in a pitstop.

Change for Daytona: So that the Short Tails don't have to stop 3 times at this high speed track, the fuel multiplier will be 1.8x, and everybody has to pit twice (as some cars will be able to do it in 1 stop). You have to do something in the stop - add some fuel, change tyres, or both.

Qualifying is at 8:45pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

I think I might be missing this one. I'm going to Sydney for a spot of Hurling and won't be getting back into Brisbane AP until 8 EDST.
I'll see how I go.

Hahahahaha Wally.

Nah, Hurling with the hurley and the sliotar and a bunch of madmen running around at 1 million miles an hour. There's a match for the Irish Festival on Sunday.

Yeah...no.
All part of the strategic choice. This circuit is surely the one where the C9 has the greatest advantage. There will be other circuits where the Short Tail has the advantage.

There's something wrong with the practice server time sheet, when you click on on Kcenders name it says "human driver"

The Mazda is way down on top end speed here. Not sure there is any way it could keep up with a C9 or longtail

Lol that damn bus stop is a serious issue - firstly, the braking point arrives very quickly and I can barely see in the shadows in the rift, then the C9 has no front end downforce so you have to stop the thing turn in then go again :P then 800 horsepower comes and fixes everything - doing that for an hour will be interesting - and protecting the rear tyres....
