  • Magny-Cours GP Lap Times

    So what kind of times are you guys getting on the track?

    I started getting a few good run around 2:09 with a Falcon and a Mustang w/ 22 laps of fuel but most of my laps seem to be around around 2:11.

    With the Mini I've flirted with 2:09, but mostly I've been cozy around 2:11 - 2:12. I'm still tweaking and practicing. I hope to lower the average a couple seconds.

    Definitely feeling more confident this time around. I guess the Mini is just more my cup of whee!

        I noticed that the Cortina was doing 2:08 on Semi-Pro. I think most of the cars will be pretty even on this track.

          Yeah, I think that any one strength of a given car will counter the weakness of another. And each car really does have a single strength and a single weakness on this track. the Mini and the Mustang are the most extreme examples of this... nimble handling/low power vs. brute force/clumsy control. the Cortina, Alfa, and to a lesser extent Jaguar (forget the Abarth) are fairly well balanced, without extreme strengths/weaknesses.

          I don't think any one car will specifically come out on top. It'll come down to comfort with a particular car's traits.

          It'll be interesting.

            I did a few full laps in the Cortina and my best was 2:08. Lots and lots of room for improvement with timing though. I don't think the big dogs are going to use all their muscle, but it's hard to tell at this point for sure. When's the next open practice? ;)

                            So any new updated time lately. Hopefully tonight I can go in and figure out the best car to use.

                              I did a 20 lap practice today. I've been able to consistantly lapping in the mid 2:07's with a few mid 2:06's using the GTA. ;) Thats what I will be using for the race.
