The second Green Turismo event is happening this Wednesday the 20th of August
at the Red Bull Ring
. The lobby will open at 7:30 with either myself or Scott as the host. Please make sure you have both of us added on PSN before then (DanThorn, wilkesy88). Qualifying practice will take place from 7:30 to 8:00, at which point the races will begin.
After last week, please remember that if you exit the practice session back to the menu you will lose any qualifying times you have done up to that point.
A qualifying reminder - we're going to have to rely on each other to not take the piss with track limits. Anyone found to be gaining an advantage and setting good qualifying times as a result of this will be flat out disqualified from the event, so everyone, please be vigilant. If you accidentally gain time by going off track, slow down significantly and completely abandon the lap.
There's less track to take advantage of here, but please be reminded not to utilise run off areas or cut corners in order to gain time. Two wheels over the white line is fine, four is not. Kerbing does not count as part of the track.
Finally, please be aware that these race will be wet, so make sure you have a full compliment of wet and intermediate tyres. The 20 minute race will be completely wet throughout, but the 40 minute race will be run to changeable conditions. Weather update
: Race 1 will have 0% standing water at the start. Weather will be set to 50% and changeability set to 10. This should mean that the track will be dry at the start but raining - what happens after that is up to what the game engine decides to do with the weather! You can simulate the starting conditions in an online lobby if you wish.
Race 2 will be 100% standing water, 100% weather! and should be completely wet throughout.
I think that's everything - so, who's in? In
