    Gran Turismo Sport -Tuesday nights forum races

    Great to get back racing again. I thought the 350z was a very well balanced car, and a fun drive, although it probably would have been better suited to the indy track at Brands. Gr3 mini endurance race was fun as usual, although I ruined any chance of a victory after throwing the car off the track on the first lap, whilst tailgating @McSpeed (did the same in the Brands Hatch race too!) Was a decision ever made on what series of cars we would be running for the next championship?

    I hope it goes as well as it looks. It would be nice to see Mclaren back as a front running team again, and give Lando Norris a chance to show what he is capable off. I can see him producing the odd Podium or two this season, if the car is at least on par with the Red Bull.

    Monday is fine with me. Will tonight be the first Monday trial?

    I have had the same problem, the standard of driving in SR class S is not what you would expect it to be! The daily race at Fuji last night had some crazy stuff going on, people cutting corners and ramming people off the track like if it was a demolition derby. I gave up in the end and stuck to the TVR race at the Red bull ring, as that seemed to be a bit more civilized. Hopefully we can get everyone back to the Tuesday night forum races soon, as I am missing the clean, close racing.

    Tempted to buy Assetto Corsa for £12.99, especially now I have a wheel. Nearly bought it it on PC in the Steam sale, but having it on the PS4 would probably mean I play it more.

    Not going to be able to make it tonight i'm afraid. Still suffering from a nasty bug that has gone through the family over the weekend! All being well, I will join you next week.

    The Group C cars were a lot more manageable than I was expecting, even got away with having Traction Control turned off! I think they could make a good replacement for the GR3 cars, in the next championship. The support race idea is good too, just have to make sure everyone has the cars required beforehand. Maybe decide on what cars are going to be used in advance, to give people time to stock up. Its a shame you can't gift people cars from your garage, as I have lots of duplicates, thanks to the daily mileage roulette.

    I have a Logitech G29, with its default pedals. They do seem overly sensitive, I will try unplugging everything and see if it makes any difference. In the pre championship races, I was racing with no Traction Control, and I spent most of my time trying not to spin as I was accelerating out of the corners, that is when I released that I was only having to push the pedal half way to get full throttle. Hope I have not got a duff set of pedals!

    I was hoping that would be one of the biggest advantages of using a wheel, smoother inputs and so less tyre wear, but either the Toyota eats its tyres around Catalunya, or i wasn't being smooth enough! Can you change the sensitivity of the pedals, as I seem to get full throttle and braking at about half depression of the Brake/accelerator?

    That was an exciting end to the Championship! Probably wasn't the best idea to use my wheel setup last night, as I was still getting used to it. Had a moment in the middle of the race when the wheel came loose from the stand and so I pitted early to give myself a chance to refit it. That sort of ruined my strategy as I had to make the soft tyres last longer than I was anticipating on my final stint, and sure enough the last lap was a nightmare trying to stay on the track, never mind try and keep @Beezer behind me. Thanks to you all for the close racing, and to @McSpeed for setting up the Championship, it has been great fun. I will have to use these next few weeks to get used to the wheel and pedals, and up my game before the next championship starts up, as without @mexos and @scoobysi missing rounds, I would not have won. Need to sort myself a headset so I can join in with the party chat too.

    That wobble on the last corner Looking forward to the race tonight, as even though it is a difficult track to master, I enjoy racing on it.

    Got the Playseat Challenge (Geeky Deck Chair, as my wife called it) set up and put in a few laps last night, struggled to get below 1.50! I'm hoping its down to a lack of practice with a wheel, and that I can soon get back up to speed and match, or even improve on my pad times.

    Should show friends times automatically on the right hand side of the screen, when you go on the circuit experience.

    I think an F1500 Championship, would be best run on Super Soft with no tyre wear, as they are twitchy cars as it is, without throwing tyre degradation into the mix. Maybe keep the fuel consumption, so there is still a bit of strategy involved in the race.
