Welcome @Members to the fourth round of our Hotlap Championship. The goal is simple, set your fastest time using the in-game time-trial mode, with the car and track combo posted. If you're like Cluck and not a setup wizard then you can opt to use one of the default presets (loose, stable or OEM - where available) as we'll be running separate divisions for open and default setups.

Date: 1st December 2018 - 31st December 2018
Car: Renault Sport R.S. 01
Track: Long Beach Street Circuit

Some basic stuff
If you've previously set a time on this combo and you are unable to beat it, please take a screenshot before leaving the session or your time will be excluded. If you are taking part in the Default Setup division and are unable to beat a time you have previously set on a Custom Setup, then you must record video evidence to prove your time was set on default or your time will NOT be included for the round. You can only set a time in one division, custom OR default, per round - your time will be taken from the leaderboards at the end of the month, so please do not try and beat your own default setup time with a custom setup (or vice versa), until the month has ended and the results have been posted.

If you are taking part in the 'default' division, you must select an in-built default preset, do NOT match a custom setup to the in-game defaults. We will be using the SMS leaderboards to verify the times and setups used.

The track limits will be defined by the in-game limits, not "Two wheels within the white lines". If those limits seem too loose or too tight, drive your lap accordingly. We will not be reviewing laps unless they are suspiciously fast.

Please be aware that the car for this round is NOT the GT3 variant, so please make sure you only use the standard Renault Sport R.S. 01.

I love the track, but I didn't have a go with the car yet. Sounds exciting.
Fingers crossed I'll have some time to have a go at this.

^^^ It's really good fun :) . As with the Audi last month, the car is quite tame when you're pootling along but has some real character and bite when you're pushing it hard, making it rewarding, challenging and exciting to push to the limit. To give you an idea of how much fun it is, I actually found myself enjoying the Spa circuit when I had to TT this car around it for the Renault eSport competition a few months back ;)

The current #1 time is VERY beatable on default setup so I'm expecting a lovely RSR top 10 on the leaderboard by the end of the month ;)

Trying a new driving position to have a better view on the apex

Did a 1:16 within 3 laps, including hitting the wall... so the top 10 will soon be RSR's :cool:

Indeed.

Drove around yesterday evening for about 30 minutes. Realised I've never driven Long Beach. The scenery is very busy, I find spotting turn in points very difficult. Especially with the run off.

And what a funny car. Understeer, understeer, understeeeeeer, oversteer dead.

You're over-driving it in that case :) (Captain Obvious reporting for duty :D)

This car is VERY quick and I suspect that will catch a few people out, with approach speeds to corners higher than they are possibly expecting. This car will happily lap Bathurst in under 2 minutes in default setup (I was the 1st person to do so in pCARS1 time-trial as it happens), it's certainly no slouch :) . Get on the brakes earlier than you would in a GT3 car, for example, then feed the power in rather than mash it and you'll take corners with ease.

Thanks for the advice! One of the skills I still need to develop is understanding how to drive different cars. Towards the end of the evening I was actually doing better times by doing exactly that, but couldn't get a clean lap.

This is again a great learning experience. :bookworm:

Things are getting serious in the top 10 :)
I think a realistic first goal for me is a (low) 1:14, I'll give it a try this evening.

I found corner entry speed is not as important as trying to get a good exit from the corner to carry as much speed down the straights

Dammit @steveg200 that is one hell of a lap. I've closed the gap a little, but I feel I'd need my perfect lap to match that. Also, this car really isn't too bad on defaults...

Short moment of fame... got myself inside the top 10 :) ... before more aliens enter the competition.
Expected to do a 1:14, but probably not in my best shape after a day of hard work...should be possible though.
Still getting better and getting to a point where I more and more know what I do wrong and where I can improve.

That's always the main goal, learning from what works and what doesn't :). Going back to something @kobusnell wrote, too, the other important thing is that you are getting to learn how different cars behave, something that is very useful for later getting to grips with new cars - the more experience we have of different car behaviour, the quicker we can adapt to a car we haven't driven before.

For what it's worth, I have no idea what a fast lap is with this combo. The lap from @steveg200 looks pretty decent though :).

Unfortunately @Cluck isn't competing, see previous Audi R8 Imola challenge, but it might be something close to the world record on this track.

Edit: overall best list seems to be incorrect, lot of cars missing. A Dallara ir-12 Honda does a 1:03
