thats crazy pace!In terms of outright pace, expect a 1m14 for quali with race pace hovering around the mid-1m15s mark in clear air (I just started a race in race conditions and did a 1m15.5 on my 2nd flying lap, after the parade lap, starting from 100L). That's with the Macca, which is an absolute joy to drive.
EDIT : Whoopsie, I just did a 1m14.45 lap in TT
well i can manage a high 1:17 on race fuel if i get a clean lap. Im going to try and improve my setup. Im loosing atleast half a second in sector 2, mostly at corkscrewAdmittedly, a mid-1m15 lap on a near-full tank wasn't far off being an ideal lap but, if you're consistent, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to do that lap after lap after lap (it wasn't exactly a 'balls to the wall' style lap, like the TT lap above). Realistically, I suspect the average times will be high 15s rather than mid-15s.
Tyre temps looked OK for the few laps I did and fuel certainly isn't a concern (90L should comfortably finish the race, with fuel left over). This race is going to come down to consistency and consistency alone.
I won't go into the full detail of the setup but the wings are maxxed out, gearing is default, as are the damper settings (all that slow and fast bump stuff that I can never get my head around)
