    Any extra points for clearing the cones at the side of the track? I am getting rather handy at that. :rolleyes:

    But you have to come get them at my house:

    Count yourself lucky I'm averaging high 1:22's.
    I think there's no problem with using the softs. Did a 40 minute run and only the front left had gone in yellow so personally I think they should last the distance but of course I was running slower lap times. The big question is will I last the distance? :)

    These things are like Rollercoasters.....

    I am strapped in, hanging on, screaming at every corner, and have zero control of what is happening.

    Great fun :D

    As promised above here is my current setup.
    My fastest lap is a 1:20.5 and I'm probably averaging high 1:20's low 1:21's with it. It seems stable enough and I can now take T1 and T2 flat in 6th. Downforce is set slightly higher to give bit more stability and the rear anti roll slightly stiffer. I like the back to slide a little on corner turn in, helps cut down on understeer. Front left tyre temperature still spikes but on a 40 minute run it was in the yellow with good tread, rest of the tyres still green. I think it will last the hour. Only done high fuel runs so far with a starting fuel of 90 litres. I haven't worked out the race fuel load yet.
    Hope this helps but I'm no expert here. I go with the trial and error approach to setup as I only have a little understanding of what everything does.

    There are 6 red lights for this event. It would be great to have a full grid, so please unregister in time if you know you can't make it, so a few red lights get a chance to race.

    Once I'm in practise, I don't go back. I can't Alt-Tab or the game crashes.
    I suggest to do your practice and then watch the signup list for the last 30 minutes before qual.
    Would be sad if a few would no-show without unregistering. But they go straight out of the series. All the other events are with 30 signups.

    Is the server password the usual practice one as I dont seem to be able to join
    LOL to the crash though:)

    No, the password has changed to race server password. Red lights can't see it. You can see it when you're green.

    I downloaded the skin pack for this mod. Can I use one of the M23 Shadow skins?

    The shadow is not available for this series, sorry :). Those skins don't go together esthetically.
