  4. I tried all weather conditions on dry tyres, and as expected the difficultly ramps up accordingly with each weather step, though the step from Heavy Rain to Storm goes from 'satisfyingly difficult' to 'forget it, you're in the wall' :p

    Do you even get traction? Even with wet tyres, there's some parts in storm conditions, where you just aquaplane, when you hit the river patches. :)

    With dry tyres?
  8. whoops..... i didnt read that part wow that was with wet tyres im gonna try with dry now. sorry

    yeah i tried and i wont even bother... i keep crashing ^^

    I would post a lap time if I wouldn't spin with 5th gear doing 20km/h :D

    Hi Chakko,
    its just for fun.
    But maybe we face this conditions later? You have to survive one lap on dry tyres in thunderstorm?
    If it is totally crap, please ignore it. Close thread and bond me with... duck tape?? :eek:
    But i hit my wall at hotlap and after one beer *cough*cough* (or two?) - i discovered this challenge....:p

    Question is, do they really allow the race to continue under heavy rain/storm conditions? I feel medium rain might be most realistic as far as training goes.

    Edit: Also, I don't think a storm can come out *that* quickly so you're probably going to be on wet tyres already too. Still, good job on finishing the lap, I can't :D

    No worries. :D Seemed a bit fast with dry tyres, that's all. :)

    I think my best was a 2:17 something, with wet tyres. I only drove in light rain with dry tyres, and that was no problem. Wasn't exactly fast, but, still quite a lot of grip.

    Patience. All bout patience (think the beer helps a little^^). "I am singing in the rain" *kabOOM* :)

    More serious: In reality with this amount of water they stop the race. Its not realistic i think.

    Aris wrote in another thread that it's "conditions short before the race is stopped". Or similar. So, should still be driveable (and it is, with wet tyres), but, there'll be some standing water which causes aquaplaning in some spots.

    EPIC :) First three laps: 3'03'8

    Then tried to do some smart setup changes, but didn't really work, car felt more confident, but pace didn't come :D I did 3 laps with one setup tacting then 3 laps with other tactic. It was 3'02'02 both times :D

    I think under 3'00 is doable, aliens should be able.

    So slow, yet feels so fast :D 140 is probably top speed, I don't think i drove more than 145 kmh.

    Haven’t you seen 2016 24h of Nürburgring? Full wet conditions right after passing Schwedenkreuz. It developed into a hailstorm fast. :D

    I haven't :rolleyes: But I feel that "Storm" is a bit too much to keep a race going, or at least that's how it feels to an average racer like me. But maybe I watch too much F1, those Blancpain races are pretty hardcore.
