    Who'a idea was it to start voting for Losail? oh yes it was me :( . After 1/2 an hour TT'ing this track I can see this week is going to be difficult!. On average every week I'm about 6 seconds behind the worlds best, I can't see me getting within 10 seconds of the record this week!.

    I must admit i'm not too keen on this track either. I haven't started tt'ing yet but i know there are a sequence of corners that are a b*tch to get right on this one.

    Haven't taken part for a few weeks as I haven't had the time to practice.
    Had a go for about 45 mins tonight, so to set the ball rolling

    1.36.90 still a bit to come off that yet.

    Has anyone got a gun and the name and address of the track designer of losail as i may have some use for it:D

    Here is my first and probably only time as this track really annoys me but may have another go at some point.

    I actually voted for this track because I've had some good races on it, I guess there is a difference between racing and TT'ing, i.e TT'ing makes you ride agressively and pushing too hard to try to take every corner as fast as you can....a recipe for disaster and many, many lap restarts!.

    Ive been setting up a Ranked match the last few days and doing the current track we have on here. More fun racing someone than just your ghost. Its helped drop my seed by 2 points so far aswell and given me some better times :smashin:

    Thanks,

    I've really nailed the braking/turning points on this track but I'm struggling with the bike setup as I lack speed in some sections and accelaration in others...:rolleyes:

    My best time so far is 1:31.62. I agree this is a tricky track to master.

    The three consecutive right hand corners towards the end of the lap are where you can lose and gain a lot of time.

    Thanks for the compliments nutter45 and C225. I managed to get down to a 1:30.82 last night which got me into the top 100 for the track. :clap:

    I'm temped to try for the 1:20's but I think I'd have to experiment with hard tyres so screw that! :D
