    It’s a shame, I found one of the updates a while back borked the Ferrari and Lambo. I found the same, to stop the rear sliding I had to turn the TC down which was weird. Haven’t put much time in to Circuit Experience because I’d never use that car.

    I don’t think I’ve got a hope in hell on Tuesday based on the seriously impressive circuit experience times @marsh and @Batmobile have set in a dog of a car on hard tyres!

    I don’t think what we’ve got is that far off, not sure how @McSpeed did it . On another night Mexos could have won with the one stop, it was close. I think it would be quite hard to get it any closer, changing a variable will probably just tip it to everyone having to go one stop soft, medium. I think we should definitely keep fuel and tyre wear though otherwise it becomes a bit of a time trial.

    Ha, works both ways I thought you might. I suspect you might be quite good at this track too . It must be close for top 3 positions so I’m expecting @McSpeed @Beezer @marsh to be in amongst it. Should be fun. I do like Catalunya but it’s easy to make mistakes so who knows. Haven’t tried it yet in GTS so will need to do a bit of practice.

    @mexos cheers, that always felt like a very close race even though at times we were seconds apart due to different strategies. As usual I got a poor start, I’m going to need to practice those. I got a bump going into the first corner and ran wide which put me down to 3rd I think behind @marsh and then I went wide turn 3/4 and @Batmobile swooped past both of us. I couldn’t get past @marsh for a few laps and only did so when he had a bit of a bump with @Batmobile? which gave me the opportunity, not sure if it was then or a bit later that I got past @Batmobileinto 2nd. Managed to close up a bit on @mexosand then went for the pitstop, filled the tank and put on softs, I was sure that @mexoswould do the same the following lap, we were neck and neck into the 1st corner but I got out ahead. As I pulled a gap I realised that @mexosmust be on mediums and therefore probably going to the end. I think I got the lead up to about 5.75 secs but the lap before I pitted for the 2nd time the gap dropped by about 1.5secs and at that point I thought I’ve lost this. Not sure if I had a bad lap, tyres were going off fast or if @mexosincreased his fuel use. After the pitstop I was about 10 secs behind with 5 to go and was then surprised to see that I could bring the lead down by 2 secs plus per lap which I didn’t expect after losing 1.5 before going in to pits. I had better grip out of the final corner on the penultimate lap and we were side by side going into the first corner, I braked early hoping to go up the inside with better drive, we then went side by side for a few corners until I got slightly ahead but we touched going into 5, I went wide but came back on ahead. Better tyres were then enough to bring it home , phew. First race with the wheel/drivehub felt great .

    I’d vote for the longer route, partly because I thought we normally went with that and also it looks as though Blancpain GT3 Asia use that layout.

    In that case you’re probably quicker than me

    the time trial leaderboards are solo only though aren’t they so I won’t be able to see your time?

    Drivehub arrived and so far I’m seriously impressed, I should have ordered one ages ago but I was a little doubtful how good it would be. I have a Fanatec CSR and Elite pedals and have only tried it with GT Sport so far. Initially the fps took a big hit and it was lagging all of the place in Fanatec mode but was fine in Fanalogic (Logitech) mode. A quick google and update of the Drivehub to the latest beta firmware sorted that. Navigation of menus via the wheel is fine, took me a while to figure out what the Playstaion button map was, it was the XBOX button, which I’d forgotten was there .

    I much prefer it over the sticks as It feels much smoother and more natural. I was instantly faster and more consistent within a few laps when I started using it vs normal pad.

    On a pad using the motion control. Hopefully I’ll have my DriveHub soon and be wheeled up by Catalunya.

    It is, still though Fuji I think. Then Catalunya which I still haven’t tried in GT Sport.

    Least enjoyable race of the season so far for me, nothing seemed to go right. Bogged down at the start which ruined stint on softs so pitted early after 3 laps, might have been ok if I hadn’t driven off track a couple of times. That put me on a 3(S), 7(M), 7(M) strategy. To top it all off I hit the wall at the end as I was trying too hard not to hit the wall, doh, which let @Beezer through. Stupid fantasy tracks, they have no place in our Championship .

    Exactly but that’s easier said than done

    Dragon Trail is going to be an interesting race on Tuesday, it’s tough on tyres, consistency will be key, especially through the chicane.
