Excuse me!  “I consider it a lucky result, especially as my engine was missing for about the last 4 laps.”

Drivers' comments

Cheers Jani.

I spent a lot of time trying to achieve Yannick's predicted 2:35 but in the end I just went with what I'd got!

Clive Loynes 06/25/2018 10:59:13

Grats Clive!

I drove in a different class (again), but I enjoyed it so who cares :D

Though I'm not sure how many seconds were lost due to my car choice.

Jani Posta 06/25/2018 10:15:09

ah new challenges. still bad in time so i hope to set a time in the evening...

Bastian Grupp 06/24/2018 13:41:55

A bit less but I think that's it.
Thank you for that.

Andy Clegg 06/23/2018 14:57:33

I'm telling myself that the Lap Record times probably came from a race and there is plenty of scope for slipstreaming. ;-)

Clive Loynes 06/22/2018 19:50:47

I can do 2.43 all day long but tried all sorts to get below.
I've never driven Long Beach so how about the 69 extra at Long Beach?
I must be out of practice. Not driven GPL for months.

Andy Clegg 06/22/2018 15:31:53

Think there is still some space if I see that Urban set a 2:34 in a Mercedes! With the 625, maybe a few tenths lower is possible.
I might be able to hit 2:35 with the Lancia...

Yannick Verheijen 06/22/2018 13:46:48

Andy, I'm opened to any hotlap ideas. Just tell the preferred track/mod combo :)

Jani Posta 06/22/2018 11:38:26

I'm enjoying this challenge. Is there another after this? I can't see another under events.
I keep changing my setup but can't seem to get any quicker. I suppose that maybe I should just drive than keep changing everything.

Andy Clegg 06/22/2018 10:10:05

Yes, the third corner is where you find out that you used too much brake application at T2!

T1 isn't a “given“ either as you start off with so much room but then the thing goes sideways and you have to thread it down the left of those straw bales!

Not such a problem when just hot lapping but a race would be interesting. ;-)

I could probably host one after the challenge is finished on Sunday.

Clive Loynes 06/21/2018 13:52:20

Yes, I found that lamp post there. Also third corner is a bit tight.

Andy Clegg 06/20/2018 08:54:03

It's a new one on me.

I would like to move that lamp post that is bang on my line when I come through the last corner!

Clive Loynes 06/19/2018 20:56:15

I've not been on here for a long time. Thought I'd see if I was any quicker!!.

Andy Clegg 06/19/2018 08:55:57

I'm slow as hell at the moment, but I throroughly enjoy this challenge :D
