Urgh I hate this game but I love it. I think I made a GREAT lap, I cross the finish line.. 1:10:000. Every time I try to push a little harder I end up eating grass or spinning around ....

At least it was a round time this time, haha.

Interlagos: 71.047
Estoril: 70.000
Total: 141.047

At least I'm back to the qualifying positions.

Sorry Janci, the battle continues..
Surprised to go sub 1:09 because a lot of corners where over/under cooked.
I'll share the setup when the round is over

Nice. Tough competition. The key is to brake late and accelerate early.

Goddamn it I go to sleep, I wake up and I'm already out of the qualifying positions again?Grrr.

I blame my engineers, the team gave the best engineers to my teammate, his car is obviously better than mine.

Reluctantly I thought I'd give it a go this evening and predictably I haven't done very well, but at least playing in this format is more accessible than a full-blown race we had previously. I may very well try again however - I did have all the aids on which probably doesn't help me speed-wise.

The good news is we've now got enough entrants to form the group stage after this round, meaning at least 12 will qualify rather than 8 and we'll play all five games in this tournament as advertised.

The bad news is that even with Capehorn's 100,000 'bonus' for only completing one track so far, he's still not far behind me...

Heheh thanks mate, your Estoril record looks safe from me at least, I'm nowhere near it yet

Very very good news there's at least 14 players now, tough qualifier this year overall

Absolutely insane how competitive these times are. Unless a lot of new people who are not as good at this game suddenly submit scores, I haven't got a prayer of qualifying.
