    well that was fun!

    Had a great battle with @Knuckles & @Mustafur
    Tapped mustafur slightly and redressed and was catching knuckles towards the end as his tyres went off but was 1.6 behind at the flag so my early mistake probably cost me the win lol

    But good racing and good chatter in the party too

    Was good fun. Really glad i ditched the lexus. Was just as quick but chewed tyres. I vote for rolling starts to make a return. Lol

    I should have saved my quali lap, to get that tank to 4th on the grid, must have been one of the best laps I’ve ever done.

    I knew the Veyron would be bad here, but I had no idea it would be this bad. 3 seconds a lap slower with faster wear on a harder compound tyre, I felt like Mercedes in early 2013 with their comical tyre wear issues.

    Do you think we do a manual rolling start?

    I thought i sore rnd one was a rolling start is all. Did you not see how bad the tt was off the line. 1st to 7th in 50m.

    will cause more issues I think. takes more time to setup and how do you make sure nobody jumps too early?

    No, even with TCS, the FWD cars can’t overcome their inherent traction disadvantage. BoP does not take this into account, which is why Sport Mode races employ rolling starts.

    We all had the same dramas. My last laps were close to 4sec off my optimal and they were the best laps I've ever driven being hunted down by @Mustafur on fresher rubber.

    The wear rate for that race was perfect as it made 1 and 2 stops very comparable strategies. Reduce wear and it's just another train for 20 odd laps.

    @Hatfield @VARDZ you could make the races one lap longer and treat the first lap as a safety car restart. Let the leader choose when to bolt. Safer turn one and less gaps between on start.

    Yeah another lap or 2 and I'd have been right on your bumper. Had a great battle with @JonoStan96 which probably let you get away a bit.
