well, this is one deadly track that I've never driven before...fair warning; it's not a half an hour to learn this one in :)

From my experiences at this track, the high speeds often bite you!

Well, that's good because there are barely any low speed sections :D

But to illustrate it; my first full lap was a 4:30.  Then slowly I've worked myself down to the current 3:30.8 (which did not register in ptracker!), still some 4s off kcender, and he had friggen 4 laps!!! Mate you must be driving with your right pedal glued to the floor.  Incredible.

It's a really great track when you get it right.   I'd call it a mini Nordschleife. 
But those houses and stuff right next to the track...geezusss...these guys had balls of kryptonium to drive these cars at 300+ speeds here, back in the day.

My time was maybe handicapped by about gin seconds, but I don't think I have a lot left

Wait until you add some drafting into that scenario . . .  :o :o

You know you can do practice offline as well  ;)
I've done 2 laps on the server last night, but don't think my time is a result of just that...tried maybe ten times doing a full lap offline before...and managed to get 3 or 4 done. Btw the forces I apply to my steering wheel must be insane :-)

And sTracker only counts timed laps.
My 20 is closer to 40 with in/outlaps and incomplete laps. ;)

This will be a race of who can keep it straight, clean, out of trouble for others and on the black top. :)
From our outing here in the Porsche's, Les Combes will be a S1#t fight with cars going all directions.  ;)
That's if we can get passed eau rouge. :o
I think I posted this last time we were here, great watch, love the VW going wide then almost loosing it.

Yeah, at these speeds a crash is pretty much the end of the race...Wally, what about 4 x 4 lap sprint races...to reduce waiting time for the next race ;-)
Kidding, that would probably just increase carnage...haha
Btw penalties could be increased on this one as well. That's just because risky moves will likely have a different impact than on a normal race track...just an idea...may suffer from that myself...
Wally, you may have tried it before, but for me as a bit of a noob it would make sense to have penalties, which really have a significant impact on the receiver.
I mean the consequences of a risky move in real racing can be very significant of course...there's life at risk, shitloads of money, time and effort. There's all this effort and money going into trying to make sim racing as real as possible. It would be interesting to know what happens behind the scenes when one of these young drivers in whatever real racing series does something stupid. I believe team managers have very serious discussions with race drivers in general and especially in case things went wrong. We're getting away with stupid moves rather lightly...a voluntary 'sorry' and 30kg :-) Again, I'm not criticising the system...just a spontaneous thought...not too much experience here with me as said before.

Imagine if it had a sixth gear  . . .  8) 8)
p.s. I want to know how you are getting through S3 2.5 seconds quicker than me in the same car :) :)
