    Sign up is still open ;)
    If it closed for you someone else needs to do the sign up. But they can enter you as team manager so you can do the changes afterwards.

    Still struggling with tire issues. getting random spikes in tire temps, can go through the same corner on multiple laps and randomly tire temps will go 200+ degrees and lose all grip. not sure if its car issue or track problem as the teams has spend ages trying to figure it out...:(

    I´ve tested a few days ago some laps with the Porsche. After 2/3 of an stint (around 30l fuel rest) i´ve got a tire wear from about 20+ on front right, but with very decent lap times from about 1:54, 1:55. I think you have to save tires in the multiple left with opening steering, or setting up with oversteering.
    I believe, if tires got too hot for too long time (deep yellow), it doesn´t matter if you have little tire wear, he´s dead and would not generate grip anymore. And if so it should be realistic, because with too much temperature tires lost their softener, get hard and the tire can´t mill anymore. Lay wintertires in summer into the sun and compare it in autumn with an winter tire you have protect of sun. So for me it´s most important not to stress the tires and became temp over 130° celsius to alive over an stint. But it costs laptime, sure.

    This is one of those tracks that it has certain important corners and the car needs to be set specifically for those corners.

    For T6 & T8 make sure the RT/F camber is set properly. All 3 temp readings across tire surface is even for best grip but also to prevent excessive heating. Make sure the chassis has enough neutral oversteer thru T8 so the tire scrub is minimal.
    Even a slight tire scrub will yield high tire temps in long sweeping corners like T8.

    Uppsi daisy, swapped your name with @Joern Dette :D Still, I do not believe 1:54/55 will be a decent race pace^^

    I tried a few laps in the Ferrari after reading this and had between 0.7% to 0.9% wear per lap on the front right tyre, it seems fine.

    Are you going to launch any skinpack? I think I'm using Atlanta's car, but one of my team mates is selecting another car with the same skin, I guess. I'm a little bit confused.

    Thanks.

    If you created a livery and submitted it, it should be on the servers shortly.

    Hallo,

    Ihr habt im Race-Thread noch Bathurst als Weather-Underground-Station verlinkt! Könnt Ihr das vielleicht noch anpassen und dafür Sorge tragen, dass der Rennserver tatsächlich von Bathurst auf Istanbul umgebogen wurde!? ;)

    This evening will i prepare the server.

    Link geändert. Steht schon auf Istanbul, sonst wäre es ~30° kühler auf dem Server ;)

    Skins are on the server.

    Track update will follow tomorrow.

    For #658 from @Adam Karkuszewski and #82 from @Csaba Kiss was not skin there in time and also no backup skin available.
    This means for those two car no skin and therefor no race.
