    So, a tricky one last time out with fast sweepers and a car with lots of aero and good brakes, bit of a change this month!

    My choice is the BMW M1 Procar at one of my fave circuits - Donington National Circuit.


    Guidelines:
    1. At the start of each month a track and car are chosen by the driver with the fastest time from the previous month. If the same driver is fastest two months in a row then the track/car choice falls to the next fastest driver. The car & track should be chosen within a few days of the start of the month.
    2. Keep to short tracks (<2.5 miles) so that it doesn't take too long to try and set a good time.
    3. DLC cars not allowed.
    4. Times must be set in time trial mode, not free practice or any other mode.
    5. Entries should include what platform, controller (wheel or pad) and options were used - i.e. ABS, traction control and stability control.
    6. Entries to be backed up by leaderboard link, screenshot or video.

    Excellent time that. I'm struggling to get clean laps with that chicane at the end of the lap

    Took a bit of work tweaking the diff (it was far too aggressive), but 1:06.363 is my best so far. Same settings as before - ABS only.
    I'm taking 2nd for the chicane entry, then short-shifting just before the 2nd apex to 3rd to settle the car for that nasty bump on the exit.

    Been really dissapointed with my times on this. Just noticed I was using the 1 series m coupe, which is not what everyone else is using. I'll start again...

    This is so hard to be fair... the car is just way to loose under braking to do anything with it I managed a 1.07.9 it was proper messy but I was pushing for the 1.03.0 to win the game
    I'm using a thrust master wheel for this

    Very nice! Bloody good with a pad, can't believe how much you can abuse it with the TC etc turned on.

    It's pretty tricky with the car as-is, I found it needed quite a few tweaks including suspension etc to get it anywhere near. Biggest effects were the dampers and the diff - otherwise it was a total handful under braking = mega laptime killer.

    Bit more effort from me, 1:05.829
