Hard to say, but I think if you can get into the 30s with race pace you will be doing ok. Fast guys will be in the 28s. There should be a couple of sets available soon in the iracing forums.

I am new to this track as well and ran maybe 30 laps a few days ago with a set for Brands Hatch and my my optimal is low 29's. With an optimized set and more laps, I think I can get into 28's for sure. This was with full fuel mid 90's temp track.

Hmmm ok... I got the feeling the set im using isnt working out that well. I'm pushing like crazy, did over 100 laps and its hard to get under 1:32. And im not the worse driver.
U maybe want to share your setup, or can i get a decent one somewhere?

Look in the forum for sets posted by Suellio, maybe from Brands Hatch last season. That's a good place to start. He may post a new set for this track this weekend.

Practice will start at 9am sim time but the race will be at noon sim so likely it will be a hot track.

Pre-Race Interview is up!

Also, please note we will have a drivers meeting 5 minutes or so before qualifying starts with some important notes for the upcoming season. In order to hear Owens seductive voice, please be prepared to park your car and listen in!

Thanks for the reminder, now I got to get the scented candles out, a glass of red, and lean back to the subtle nuances of OOOOOOWEN!
Yes I am a sick and deranged man.

I won't be able to make for a while, I work for the Quebec Public health and it's absolute madness, if needed I can leave my spot to someone else. Have fun !

Well that was a learning experience last night. :shock: Kidding aside thanks to PRL admins for the event and series looks like its going to be a good one. For me I was a bit taken by surprise when I came into Q session. I expected it to be private Q session ala IRacing. Some 38 cars on that small circuit thru me for a loop.  :roll: Just never was able to get a solid run in so parked it and decided to try and pick my way thru the pack.
Well that actually worked with help from that big shlmazzel on lap 1. Made my way up to P-25 I think from dead last but I think I clipped someones debris making my way thru that early wreck because car was really pulling left and I was fighting it all the way from there. I pitted for fuel early thinking it may balance the car more but it only got worse and I suddenly was spinning the back around and really slowing too much so decided to park it and call it a night before I caused an issue.  
Great stuff though and look forward to a hard fought season. 
On a side note I noticed a few cars in front of me flashing and disappearing and returning as well as bouncing around. Not sure what was causing it. On my end i have highest speed service they will give me and my rig is pretty high end. My ping last night looked good. So not sure. Just noting it.

1- Welcome to another season in the F3! Sure to be another action packed season, we have many returning drivers as well as some new faces. Can any of the "young guns" take it to the returning vets? Where do you think you will stack up this season?
I should be a back-runner this season due to trying a new community and will be trying to find my speed in the action-packed as i am a new face to the league...

2- We are starting the season off at Zandvoort. How do you like this car & track combo?
I have a nice set-up but the track is hard to overtake in the F3 car as it very little turns and will cause to crash out if you overtake on the wrong turn..

3- How important do you feel your qualifying effort will be here? Will it make or break your finish?
A lot? Due to it hard to overtake.

The commentators said I 'didn't show up for the post race interview' but I had no idea where I was supposed to 'turn up' to? Can anyone enlighten me in the vain hope I get the opportunity again??
