right this time we're not going to do a hotlap. nobody said it's strictly a hotlap challenge right?
Bracket Racing & Tire Management Practice
before you went on. yes i know it's a field usually only for drag racing. but it is also a practice done by almost all if not all racing drivers, if my source of info is correct.
for those of you who don't know. what am i actually talking about?
here's the short one.
Instead of going as fast as possible to make the fastest lap time. you're going to aim to make your laptime to be as close as possible to a set target time
this means you don't go all out at all. this practice is usually for learning better control of your car, and your car's behaviour.
so here's the circumstances. i'm going to make the field as equal as possible, to eliminate other factors aside from skill, with exception to wheel users.
with your requests. the track used will the the Bathurst track mod.

Driving Realism :
Stability control for non wheel users allowed up to 50%
Tyre Blankets are allowed, although they won't change much since the tyres won't be warm enough unless you push it, which is not the goal of this challenge.
Car Tuning : stock setting only. no Tuning allowed except for Tyre pressure and fuel (i did say equal field)
Tyre Type : Street 90s
(i'm using it for a reason which is, it wears out like a bitch in heat when pushed, they make no screeching sound, so it's hard to tell when it's sliding or not until it's a somewhat big slide. both make a good practice limitation. we have yet to race on worn tires have we?)
Target time : 2:58.000 +- 2 secs over 3 laps minimum
so that means that you have to make your lap time within up to 2 secs faster OR slower than 2:58 for 3 consecutive lap minimum, the longer the better.
btw since this is the first round using mods. please say something if the mod doesn't work for you
