Consedering yesterday's discussions about track limits, would it be possible to have a statement early? My opinion is that we don't need extension for this track, white lines are enough to follow a natural racing line

I remember with the Clio Cup the chicane exit being abused a bit, other than that the track is pretty much self policing with gravel isn't it?

Not even worth it, you lose time from the car instability/not getting the traction down so no need to extend.

The exit of the chicane on the back straight, it is quicker to take the grass on the inside of the exit but you still have two wheels inside of white lines so no rules being broken there.

The exit of the very final corner I can see people wondering out past the white lines, but again not sure it is even worth any lap time and can easily stay with 2 wheels inside the white lines.

It might be worth including the mandatory pitstop with 4 tyre change rule for the feature race in every race thread. Some drivers weren't aware of this last night.

You will end up out there with tyre wear/ understeer but it doesn't help you get a better exit/ gain you any time going on to the main straight.. the chicane may end up messy if fighting/defending but the rest of the track is fine. Again this is just my humble opinion, take from it what you will :cat:

She bought me a new gadget to stay cool in Barcelona :cool:
Connected to a USB port so hopefully it won't kill my PC. It actually does do its job, glasses in VR glasses no longer fogging up :D

I’ve tried a dog cooling mat, usb fan and I also have a fish tank pump putting cool air into the headset. The best solution so far is shirt off, towel on the seat driving in my boxers....no video allowed!

We want a live stream! :D actually a simple thing like an open window actually helps a lot preventing lens fog
