For the Nurburgring round, are we doing the nordschlife, or combined? The nordschlife doesn’t have a pit lane.

The Nissan is in the Japanese Car Pack and the Audi is only available with season pass. The other three cars come with the game.

Also, this will be my first series with the wheel.
Looking forward to seeing how it goes

Ending up with this series as AMATEUR series - at least to me - is hilarious! Did anyone of you already try let's say the Ford Sierra at let's say Bathurst? It awesome and frightening at the same time! Not really a rookie/amateur experience, though...
Don't get me wrong: I love it like this, but when actual 'rookies' enter the stage this thing will likely be a carnage.
@We1ty: hopefully the wheel slows you down a bit... ;-)

What time and dates will the races be held? As in ingame dates and time.

These cars are definitely a handful. Between the cars and some of the tracks this should be pretty good. I can’t decide which car to run yet though. I’m leaning towards the Benz at the moment.

Also, along with Chatty’s questions about start times, how long are these races going to be? And again, which Nurburgring layout are we using? Last time I tried to run a race weekend on the Nordschlife proper I couldn’t include a practice or qualifying due to lack of pits. I’m not too sure if that’s been changed or not though.

I’ll be in the Mercedes most likely

Races will be 45 minutes and begin at 15:00 IGST.

The combined circuit will most likely have to be used at the Nurburgring, unless the issue is fixed before then.

Please add me to XCiTE Racing team. It won't let me join my team mate.

It looks like if you set the date in game to the actual race date you get stuck racing in the snow.
Wed 03 Jan 2018, 19:45
Yep, saw that too. Also noticed the Ford Sierra's engine will slowly die, no matter what radiator opening one uses or turbo pressure is applied. You can only slow the deterioration down but it seems not possible to stop it. Any clues?
Wed 03 Jan 2018, 20:25
Have you tried air pressure?
Wed 03 Jan 2018, 22:28
Turbo pressure == air pressure, no?

Edit: Limiting air by lowering the air restrictor has only a limited effect. In real life lowering the turbo pressure and limiting the air intake would help, I assume. Here it seemingly doesn't do much. Temperatures remain around 80 degrees: nothing to worry about.
I even keep the engine revs well below the red zone but to no avail.

I really don’t know

What’s a decent time for this weekend? In only a few laps I’m at 1:38. I’m assuming that’s at least a second or 3 off the pace
