I can't really see how this is going to be good for Tuesday night. I remember this track from one time we did it on a Thursday and it was fun but it had its quirks.

We've had some pretty tough and 'easy to wreck' tracks this season, and while I've enjoyed that challenge this one is the most challenging yet I'd say.

In maybe the last 30 mins of practice I've done the suspension about 8 times just from clipping a curb. I've flipped the car on it's roof twice and back to the pits, again just from clipping a curb. Though the park bit there is a big pond with no surface, and twice I got loose hit a curb and fell through the pond, then back to the pits. Also twice had some really weird damage; I hit a hay bale pretty lightly and tried to reverse, had no power and next thing my engine was gone, then had the same thing happened again but my rear left was gone completely and I couldn't move.

I'm not even pushing it at the moment either, and with this much carnage just on my own I can't really imagine what will happen with other cars around  :o

Let's crank the damage down to 10%
The Kunos damage system, our expectations and mod quality are too inconsistent to allow damage to ruin our night.

Yes, it's going to be a difficult round. I like to have one challenging track in the season, where you'll have to be more cautious than normal. It's all part of mixing things up and it's a chance to reward drivers for other skills rather than speed. Someone's going to win each of the three races!

But I did turn damage down to 10% for this one, as like Joe said, there are some weird impacts with hay bales that suddenly destroy your engine.

It's not an easy track (caution, turn the sound down first, lest your brain be fried by the soundtrack).

But here's how it should be done (in the wet, no less):

I've done a setup for the Fez.  Not perfect, but see attached.

Definitely a track to do some practice laps on. Bravery can bring good lap times but usually ends in tears  ;D

This just happened to me with the 10% damage after a slow 360 spin onto the grass through that left right section. I just let the car come to a stop, then tried to pull back onto the track and it just went into a crazy spin until the right rear went.

Understandable for the missed races. Apologies but work keeps getting in the way. Looking forward to the next round

This seemed to happen to some peeps at Imola too. I haven't had it happen to me and I can't think of what is causing it. You're in the Ferrari Joe? Has it only happened to members in this car?

Are you able to race this round Jamie? If so, I can drop someone else who can't make it.

The hay bales are sticky like the walls in Imola, maybe that has something to do with it?
