    So in the pit stop you need to basically know or plan what lap you are going to pit on so you can add the correct amout of fuel. If you want to pit on lap 12 and you know it will take 28ltrs to do the final stint you need to add 28ltrs. It only fills to the amount you say to add. Correct me if I'm wrong please

    If you need 28 litres to finish you won't add 28 ltrs you need to fill to 28 litres in your pit strat. That might only be adding 9 ltrs if you still have 19ltrs left out of your starting 40ltrs.

    Yes but you need to put in (when you do your pit strategy) the figure/amount you want to come out of the pits with not tell it to add 9ltrs.

    @dj2ca , maybe this is the first post to go into the PSN chat before i do the driver briefing tomorrow.

    PLEASE READ !
    IMPORTANT ...... REGS ADJUSTMENT AND R1 INFO !


    With the tire regs the way we have them (and the way the game works), there is NO WAY of stopping drivers from mixing tyres IE, at the pit stop running hards on the front and soft on the rear. SO, we are allowing drivers to mix and match their tyres to suit their own pit strategy. A few drivers are pretty hard on the softs, so running a mix of HARD FRONT and SOFT REAR works ok for a few drivers... It is up to you, REMEMBER YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE THIS SET IN YOUR PIT STRATEGY BEFORE YOU ENTER THE PROPER RACE ROOM ON SUNDAY NIGHT. Personally, i didn't gain any advantage mixing tyres, running just .3 off my race PB on the last lap.

    TYRE STRAT :

    If you are chewing through your soft tyres (dead after about 6 - 8 laps) you will have to take hards OR A MIX for your stop so you can get to the end without having to stop twice. (hard front - soft rear). Remember the earlier you pit, the less time you take for fuel.

    FUEL STRATS :
    OK, so i did a race run last night and we were right on with the predicted 1.8L of fuel per lap. (i was 1.75 Av). We worked out the following. (remember fuel in pit is "fill tank up to" NOT add to what you have !)

    ALL BASED ON 1.8L per lap...
    PIT END LAP 6 - Fuel up to 35L
    PIT END LAP 10 - Fuel up to 28L
    PIT END LAP 13 - fuel up to 24L

    If you have any questions regarding the regs fire them at us..... I think this covers pretty much all strategy options, if you dont have a chance to test any of them i would go with the safest option which would be the following

    Pit end lap 8, fuel in pit strat to 32L and change to HARD tyre. (
    SET IN STRAT BEFORE YOU ENTER RACE ROOM)

    FINALLY, remember to have JUST 1 pit strategy in your list.....delete all others INCLUDING default so the game doesnt confuse itself.

    Cheers stu
