Reckon I can improve about 1 sec, but not 3. :(
It's a different driving style... gotta be smoother, don't upset the aero platform with abrupt pedal inputs, use small steering inputs. A struggling CPU won't help with the smoothness. I found it easier once I upgraded my CPU. I just used the aggressive preset setup, but made the hot pressures around 27 PSI. The ROOZ boys are about 2 to 3 seconds faster than me.

Thanks for the pressure tip. ;)
I had 'guessed' 26, so watch those laptimes tumble! :P 8)

Is the tyres pressure a standard on any given track?   Wally,,,you think around 27 psi on the aggressive setup?

If you use the tyre app you'll see the three lines for each tyre, middle line displays pressure, shorter line = under-inflated. Ideal is about 27/27.5, it becomes a pita when ambient is changing on longer races with day/night, morning/midday fluctuations. Wets are about 30 psi, I think.

Is your PC performance bad in ACC? I found it got easier after my hardware upgrade. You have to be more precise and smooth, and I think a low framerate makes that harder. Although having said that, Freezer did really well and Simone was pretty fast too.

Perhaps you wrecked your tyres. The tyres are more sensitive to excessive steering inputs, they get graining if you put in too much slip angle.

Yeah, I signed up there as well. I think there were about 45 cars (mixed GT3 & GT4) on the grid on Monday...was great fun. I like AC UI more, but ACC seems to be more realistic.

I have a gtx970 from memory. I started on low video settings then moved up to medium which had 40 something fps. I do prefer planted cars like GT3 so that's probably where my speed came from.
But better graphics would help. Picking brake markers, especially in the dark was hard.

Planted? I find they just have understeer everywhere. Have to drive like a granny otherwise the fronts feel sad and gives up.

That just means you're coming into the corner too hot. I've read comments from real GT3 drivers that it's often a case of scream into the corner, almost stop, turn, then scream out of the corner again.

Ummmm yeah that must have been why I sucked... but no it didn't drop below 70fps with high settings. The three fun runs we've had are the only 3 times I've loaded the game so that may have something to do with it

When I say planted I mean not tail happy.  And no I didn't notice much understeer . . a bit . . but not much!
