    For what it's worth, here's what sometimes works for me: I try not to dislike any track...if I feel weaker on a particular circuit, it's worth making extra effort to get better, and that usually means more practice. Granted, on a track which is as simple as Norisring, that task becomes a bit mind-numbing and you fall into a pattern of going slower instead of improving lap times!
    My approach is to find one challenging aspect to conquer at a time; the braking on this track would be first on the list. Maybe try a couple of different steering/braking settings (both in-game and on the controller settings) with a default setup to find some confidence before starting with the car setup development?
    In short, finding a way to overcome any weakness becomes a goal in itself and can counteract whatever feelings you might have about a particular track. Then, if (hopefully when!) you start to close the gap on the fastest drivers, it will be all the more satisfying.
    Can someone get me down off this high horse, please? :D

    Why people hate this track so much LMAO. 2 Hairpins and a chicane. Not much to hate tbh.

  9. Chris Shepherd Licensed Driver

    Roll on Sunday. Hopefully getting the night off work too, so I don't have to rush about straight after race. ;)
  10. Kyle Kaiser Licensed Driver

    Whats the lap times on this track? 45s?
  11. Kyle Kaiser Licensed Driver

    I'd like to seriously suggest emergency replacing this track with 400 laps of the Abu Dhabi pit lane.

    Andy in the topic standings, the link rattlesnake point gives a error when used, I now we can see the results below in topic but I would be nice if we had the same like the Algarve when used only these results, much cooler for me to post on the Awol website.:D
    I seem not to be able to find the qualif results for rattlesnake?
    by the way I'm impressed with your video editing skills Andy, very nice work.:cool:
    keep it up we will make sure you've got plenty to choose from :D

  19. Jonas Orfelt Licensed Driver

    cant realy explain how angry i was race 2 speend 37 3/4 laps beeing pissed off
  20. Kyle Kaiser Licensed Driver

    Well I can't say that wasn't eventful.

    Qualy went ok, though I beat my qualy time in both races so I don't know what to think about that.

    Race 1 I can barely remember.. traffic at the chicane on lap 1, a wild Aaron Channer appearing sideways from behind Andy Breedon's car on the exit of the chicane, Tony Mathews facing up instead of forwards :D and an Iceberg on the last turn :eek: somewhere in the middle and the checkered flag at the end.

    Race 2 was more interesting than race 1, was able to slink my way up to 6th and do some attacking, around the middle I ran into Chris Dark on the last hairpin, apologies dude, happened so quick I couldn't really do anything to avoid it :(. After that had a great fight with Gaetano and managed to get p3. Going to go stick my head in some cold water now to get me out of this daze that track has put me in.
