Has anyone ever run identical laptimes ?

    I ran 14 laps at Vallelunga classic in the 911R. I don't typically run this track but I wanted something simple, short with decent speeds. On lap 6 I ran a 125.072, nothing to brag about but my fastest lap in this car at this track. On lap 14 I ran the exact time, 125.072.

    After watching the videos Aris posted, I started paying closer attention to my brake reference points. Also after lap 12 I adjusted the cold PSI in an attempt to balance the hot PSI temps. PSI was about prefect this time on all four tires, after 2 laps I exactly matched my best time. Trippy !

    Big thanx to Aris for helping us all understand the basics and to see it actually make a such a dramatic difference on track in such a short period of time is without question a testament to his teaching skills

    Thank you !

    At least 2 times I had the situation that I qualified second with exactly the same time as the first.

    In one of these cases, it was actually 0.001s on the second-to-last quali lap and I managed to gain exactly that 0.001s resulting in identical lap times after quali. :cool:
    But identical times myself in a single session? Maybe, don't know.

    I manage to do steady lap times. Always within a (couple) hundreds of second. Of course with tire degradation the lap times wil drop, but always manage to keep them steady. With qualifying I sometimes can do the same lap time twice.

    I'm also very steady a driver, I can repeat my mistakes lap after lap, almost like doing it intentionally:p
  5. Once 3 laps in a row, lol.
  6. Yes of course. Several times after nearly 1000 hours of playing AC :p

    I think it happened to be identical sector times once too haha

    However I'm such a random driver, hardly any lap is the same...

    I'm trying to convert myself into setting braking points everywhere, after the very first "How To" by Aris. But I'm continuing to do it by feel at most turns, also experimenting frequantly: "what if I just lift", "what if I brake into apex, instead of in straight line and then turning into apex", "what if I'll take middle here this time" and so on.....

    It is just maths...

    There might be someone looking exactly like you somewhere in other side of the world lol

    Not often, my laps times are often wildly different, I'm happy if it's within a hundredths of a second.

    Does being one of two drivers with the same lap time in a race count too?

    (I have set ptracker to only show two digits, but it were identical lap times down to the 1/1000 s)

    Even an inconsistent driver will stand a *very* good chance of running an identical laptime at some point in their sim racing experiences, assuming they're not a beginner and have been doing it at least a couple of years.

    Race with a dead heat finish in the 2017 Rsr. :)

    Depends more on the car and how it runs with tyres and fuel load dropping but my times dont vary too much usually, quite often I have run Identical times here is just one league race recently. No identical laptimes here closest for consecutive laps was .001 ;) but not a lot between most of them. A few slower laps lapping traffic as it was a pretty short lap.

    Race 1

    I've hotlapped identical times several times. Also during open server qually 2 times in a week of which both times I've set it first and ended up 2nd on the grid. That should be the other way around IMO.

    btw, at @anything-but. After seeing the result screen it shows there was a difference of 36 thousands if I saw that correctly. Still nice finish though.

    I did it once 2 laps in a row with the same time while the rest of the 25 laps were within 0.1sec max with a gamepad on another title. That's was like 10 years ago.

    Some series, i.e. MotoGP, use the 2nd fastest lap to determine who is placed at the better grid spot if two drivers set identical fastest lap times.

    Don't know if AC is random here or how it works.

    I don't know if the rule still applies today in F1. Here is a 3-way tie during the F1 European GP qually from '97. First Villeneuve, Schumacher and Frentzen set identical times respectively. They mention it at around 2:20 in the video. IMO I think it's fair to give the benefit to the person who set the time first. Not only because he set it first but also because generally the track improves.
