Donington Lap Times

Post  Todd Black on Mon Mar 16, 2015 10:30 pm

hey hey! just  a quick question! ive been running some practice laps at donnington, just wondering what a benchmark time would be? then on the other side of the coin, whats ballpark times? i find it difficult to practice with no goal to achieve lap speed wise, unless im doing setup stuff haha

cheers boys Very Happy

You could always go on the main page and link to the server timing part.

Last I saw, someone had set a fastest time of about 1:10.something.

Not sure where that lies in terms of race pace though.

You can get previous results & times from Liveracers here http://worldseriesracing.liveracers.info/Live go to the Active Server you are interested in, click on Results and enter 'Donington National' into the Track search bar.

A quick lap last season was 1:10.3

Yup flat 1:10 was good, in free practice with higher temp on the tarmac and in quali 1:09 is possible.

Try my best to be there, everyone here at WSVR knows that Donnington is always my favorite

Don't stress it to make the race.

For every one person that doesn`t show up, it's one place up the board for me! Smile

dayum, aliens haha im mind boggled how you guys could go that quick, mind you im struggling with the whole FWD thing, everyone down here just wants to race v8's, so at least its something new to drive! how much setup tuning do these things need? ive played with just about every setting so far, and got a car that will consistently do 1:10.9 until the cows come home, im just looking for that alien one lap pace!

They take a little while to get used to, setup not a huge difference as long as you have good balance. Donington is perhaps not the easiest track to learn these on, lots of unique corners. The final chicane holds a big difference in lap time, many including me brake too late and hard whereas you need to be smoother and carry speed through. Cut the kerb too much though and there will be penalties in the races

i think im finally getting the hang of them, bit of a challenge which is good! agree with the setup as well, i just went back to default setup for last few laps in the last session and knocked out a decent lap! like your saying there's at least 3-4 tenths in my case through the final chicane, and turn 1 does my head in haha it sets the tone for the rest of the lap for me, if i can nail it its usually a good lap from then on, but run wide of too deep or something silly and the laps buggered after that! its gotta be one of the oddest corners on any tracks ive driven haha

Default setup is pretty good, can be used at most tracks with minor tweaks for gearing. Once your comfortable there are a few guys that use the same base setup all season.

Turn one is one I can never quite get right and I've lost count of how many laps I've done round Donny

Always great action at Donni, with the fast corners that allow different lines you can see so much action each corner, each lap. bounce
