    Interesting challenge! I'm having a hard time figuring out which lines are quickest. I'm more or less just driving the normal line (which itself is generally tricky for me at Brands, lol) but not convinced it's the best one, even on a green track. I am still improving (this was my second attempt) but not sure how many more goes I'll be able to give it.
    I did very little to the default setup it offered me: maybe 0.7 psi lower on the left side, a bit less TC, about 26 litres of fuel, and a bit less brake duct on the rear. I think that was it. Anybody do anything more dramatic?

    I tried a few things as I find the base setup way too stable. You just can't make it spin, the rear is really planted, so I tried making it more agile or more prone to oversteer. E.g. reduced rear wing, reduced front arb and increased rear arb, reduced front bump and more agressive toe. Lap times did not really improve, although I did not do in depth testing.

    Everything I tried setup wise with the Aston seemed to make it worse! Moving the brake balance all the way to the rear helped a bit.

    Normal racing line on a wet green track is the way to go, no rubber to make it slippery, just be wary of the curbs sometimes they bite!

    I got horribly distracted following the purchase of AC on PC! Mods and the ability to change the colour of the GT3 RS are mainly to blame... Livery creation in GT is so much easier though!

    BTW British GT is back and racing at Oulton Park today, I’d usually have been there, but for the state of the world. It’s one of my most favourite places to be.

    Livestream on YouTube, from around midday BST for those that want a taster of the track that is coming soon to ACC ;)

    Not said it for a while, so here it is nice and loud:
    World record holder @Pretend racer deservedly takes the crown this week, the only man in the “eights.” And thanks to his vid, it is fair to say, his car control on the brakes and delightful, balanced entry into the corners, played a good part in this week’s challenge success. Congrats Pr!
    2nd Place: @Neilski set the challenge and he is not far off top spot. With the practice he must have had in advance....? As he gamefully observes, his sector times look very similar to Pretend racer’s. :D But they are in fact slower. Big laughs aside, his 2.09.2 is a cracking drive and only 3/10ths off Pretend racer. Great drive and great challenge @Neilski, this week, you’ve nailed it!:)
    Third place man @F1415182235 is world fastest consoler this week. Great lap time! Let’s hope technical issues are quickly sorted and there are many more to come!

    Honourable mention goes to @Rod100 who put in some big time to get his great time. Congrats and is that your highest placed finish? Great job.
    Quick mentions to @Tony212, welcome to AC! I believe this is your first… if not apologies and welcome back.
    And to @moodyryder , who swapped a most generous amount of beer for a 2nd hand G29 and, despite his online presence, is a very, very decent chap in person!:D And @sissydriver great to see you venturing back, hope we see more.

    Of course we couldn’t maintain the excitement, stroke kerfuffle, as was at the beginning of the week. Having said that @GoodGame.eXistenZ must be beside himself with excitement at what is in the post. Or, large lorry. I wouldn’t be able to sleep. The financial concern will be short lived.:) In addition, I think an 18 month forecast is in order, anticipating the return on investment by prize money generated, with a sideline on bets offered, erm, positions taken, by WHCers…. I'm in.
    I digress! Great drive this week @GoodGame.eXistenZ . Serious speed, consistently.:cool:

    2nd Place: @Graveltrap, who kindly, or sadistically set the challenge is now on the dark side. Or is that the right side? Always one of the fastest on console, and in a solid second place this week. Difficult to assess if PC has allowed better times or not and surely the familiarisation process is still going on, but based on this week's performance, he's looking good to have a place reserved with his name, on the podium.

    @sissydriver takes the third step this week. He has built up a wealth of experience in ACC and he generously shares it with large helpings of enthusiasm. Great for WHC and for us getting to know the game. He is also getting used to regular podiums, congrats!

    Honourable mention goes to @mike reynolds , who most modestly tried to deflect the attention drawn to his whopping insight. As he rightly says, sharing is what the WHC is all about, but to let the field come steaming past you?:D
    Joking aside, that is exactly what the WHC is about, but is is great to see such a fine and generous example and let's not forget, the WHC wasn't always like this.:) Thanks to him for giving us all a warm feeling inside.

    Big thanks to @Neilski and @Graveltrap for setting the challenges and thanks to everyone for playing and contributing this week, it has been great to see.

    I think the 10 minute hotstint is my favorite, but I hope we do some more 15 minute hotstints in the future as well.

    Thanks to MikeReynolds for the green track tip, cleaning up the debris proved to be worth a solid 2 seconds a lap, at least.

    It was fun and I would have liked more time with it, for both ACC and AC.

    @Totall Wrytoff , that's correct, it's my best place in WHC ever.

    It was an eye opening trip to a wet Brands Hatch, I have to say the evolving track was just so cool to discover and drive on, fantastic stuff there from the dev team. :cool::cool::cool: Amazing the difference the green track made! I was kinda enjoying myself more when it was going fast to green though.

    I think the 15 minute run really showed what the game is capable of doing! I like the 15 minute run tbh, in fact I enjoy hotstint more than hotlaps, fuel, tyres and weather on this occasion all come to play! Hour long test of endurance for Spa 24H week? ;)

    Congrats to the winners!
