    Welcome to the thread for the Weekly Hotlap #79 : Orange is the new Cat County
    The Challenge.
    Car: Toyota GT86
    Track: Black Cat County

    Assetto Corsa.jpg
    Carro_1.jpg
    The Toyota GT86 is the car that we all would like to have in our garage.Relativley easy to buy and maintain,fast enough to be the fastest car on the block but still slow enough to doesn't scare anyone that walks in for a ride.And it's extremly good looks makes the GT86 a sweet car to behold and possess.
    Like any Toyota worth of the name (or i might say any japanse car!),this week's vehicle is very gente in terms of handling and overall is a very balanced car.Solid suspension that allows to follow nicely the racing line,but mess around with the setup and you have earned yourself a car that can go a little bit wild in the turns. It's a car that fits many personal tastes!

    Pista_1.jpg
    Black Cat County,the underdog of tracks,the infamous circuit!My personal talke on why this track is not really appreciated is that a somewhat texan desert doesn't exactly sound like the best racing environment.I can only find that explanation because the track itself,once you get some laps in,it's a very exciting one,allowing multiple racing lines and driving styles.Since the Toyota is a very versatile car,i think it's matches nicely with BCC.Plus,we can«t ignore this track forever,right?Gotta have some diversity! :)

    The Rules.
    Mode: Hotlap
    Time of day: Free
    Ambient Temp: 26 Degrees
    Setup: Free
    Controller: Free
    Assists: Factory
    Stability: Free

    If it isn't mentioned here then assume the setting is free.

    Please make sure you have the ambient temperature set correctly, and that you are in hotlap mode, I really don't like disallowing times!

    The Deadline.
    Sunday May 13h 2018 - 22:00 GMT.

    How to take part!
    To enter simply head into the game select Drive > Hotlap and choose the Toyota GT86 and head to Black Cat County. Make sure you setup the session using the settings detailed in this thread and hit the track!

    You can run as many laps as you like and update your times as often as you like, its simple :) All Platforms are welcome, it is all about having fun and enjoying Assetto Corsa.

    To submit a time, pause the game and select 'session' from the menu and screenshot this page or take a photo of your screen and post it in this thread - Note all the information from the screen is required including temperature, mode heading and of course the car being used!

    Feel free to post video clips and share information in here as well, but without the session screen your time will not be included (placing the session screen in a video clip is acceptable).

    You also need to state the time and your platform in the body of your post, this should be the first thing you do, the image should then be placed below the text. It would also be helpful to mark updated times with Improvement. This makes collating the results much easier.Also,to avoid mistakes on laptimes,please enter them with the format x.xx.xxx. This format makes it easier to work with Excell.
    A leader board will be collated from time to time, this will keep everyone up to date on where they currently stand...Unfortunately editing of posts gets locked on this forum so this post will not be updated.

    Feel free to use the unofficial leaderboard but remember you still need to include the session screen in this thread to be included in the results.

    Good luck and have fun ;)

    We had a couple of requests for the Toyota TS040 at Spa.Given the recent victory of Toyota at the Spa 6h i too thought about it and it's a perfect combo in a perfect timing.Thing is...i still don't own the Ready to Race pack :D (yeah yeah i know,i should kill myself,how can i?Well none of the cars in the pack excite me that much,the LMP1 and the Celica are probably fun but still not enough to make me spend my money on that).But tell you what guys,i'm finally going to stop to be a cheap *** dude and i'm finally gonna get the pack,and the #80 will be Toyota at Spa,so you can jump between Toyotas :p

    Boooh shame on you Hugo for not owning the full package ;) tip: If you create a Paypal donation button I'm sure a couple of us will sponsor you. All the time and energy you* invest in this WHC to keep us coming back to these WHC's. And not to mention the good battles and laughs we have. Priceless!

    I'll save the Spa WEC pics for #80 (but don't expect too much, it are just regular pitbox and on track pics).
    If I knew we would race in a GT86 I should have taken a picture of the car next to our tent. He drove a GT86....Well for now you have to do it with this one. That was our neighbor on the left side. I think he had a couple of beers too much the night before. Or he was so obsessed with the tire warmers he kept his own right front warm without having the proper gear.

    * besides you also the great guys maintaining the WHC's before you jumped on that train.

    I'll be first to jump. There are times when I am reminded how much fun Assetto Corsa is to simply drive.

    Street tyres, jump in and go. Shame I clanged the barrier on my out lap but for 45 minutes this was a very pleasant place to be.

    Had a quick go, anyone got any videos of a 2.55 or quicker? I don’t know the track at all and struggling with gear selection and turn in points. There is a great section where I fly over the Creast but then am way too hot into the left handed. Having real issues at the end hairpins as well. Best so far is 3.09 ( not officiall as no pic)

    Tricky one this. I'm not sure about the best way to take the fast corners - carry more speed through or sacrifice entry speed to get to full throttle earlier. I'm OK in sector 1. My fastest lap was about 4 tenths down on the fastest time on RSR. So I'm losing about 2.5 seconds in sectors 2 and 3.

    I almost missed the lap. When I crossed the line I thought my current fastest was 2:50.120 not 2:51.120 so I didn't grab a screenshot. It was only when I crossed the line at the end of lap 2 that I realised I was a numpty. You can just about make out that the temperature is 26C.

    Here's the video.
