So I haven't been messing with tech a lot lately, but I have been playing some Gran Turismo 7 and it's been a lot of fun. I need to record race information and thought others might benefit. My internet connectivity isn't great, so going up against other players has some difficulties associated with it. Playing the game though is all good.
This was a race I really enjoyed, even though I came third initially - probably because I screwed up the race tactics a bit.
The World Touring Car 700 races are great fun, and I'm still working out the car to take them on with. In this race, I took the very lovely Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992) '22 for a spin. It's unmodified and on RH tyres. Lap times were low 1:40:00's (I think the best was a 1:40:xx), but the fuel usage was my problem! I had to stop twice, even with the fuel mapping turned significantly down. It just didn't have the legs to get me through the race on a one stop strategy. The GR Supra Race Car beat me, and even with two stops I still placed third. I'll try it again in the Supra and see if I get a better outcome. Also of note, I just ran the WTC800 on this same track (different variant) and took the DBR9 GT around. It was a one stop race for me, in lap 8 with a squirt of juice to get over the line. I had taken one of my favourite cars - the GT by Citroen Race Car, but the fuel usage was an issue. I potentially could have driven better in this car, however, the Aston Martin seems to suit my style a bit better (FR vs MR) and I had better lap times.
OK so on with the run - this time the Supra Race Car on medium race tyres at Dragon Trail!
*** Update ***
OK that did the trick - the Supra was the winner with one fuel stop, and only a half fill to boot. The other thing to note - should have gone with Racing Hard tyres - the mediums were no good for the last lap, particularly the last half of that lap - it was all sliding and very gentle power. Time for a break.
