Well, I only consider Bonzai Joe as a better no-RH than myself (well, when I drink, Zak can also beat me, and I know that CTG also improved much), and even he can't give me that much time difference... that turned out on WSMs. My first completed lap was 2:03, and 1:52 was my sixth one, and I felt that a very good one. It would have been much less prominent, and I might have believed your time, if you had sent 1:55 for first lap...

I think it's all just a question of racing session management:

  • Unless it's a live race or if I'm really short of time, I tend not to bother with completing "survival mode" or otherwise obviously weak laps. With a different approach I would probably have had a larger number completed laps before the current one.
  • It took me about half an hour to drive that lap. When racing not-live NoRH I usually take my time, spending a few minutes with stupid crashes and unnecessary risks before settling into a rhythym and picking my driving lines. (And conversely, I often have problems when live racing due to lack of concentration and/or taking too long to find said rhythym.)
  • Finally, 0.75s of the gap between our laps is merely due to cutting the final loop - something I only managed to do right after ~4 failed attempts.

In any case, I have just had a second session, to validate the explanations above (though by now the circumstances have changed in that I know the track rather well). The final lap took seven consecutive attempts. The six failures were as follows:

  • Crash at first bridge corner;
  • Crash at the pipe;
  • Crash at the second l/r cork (the one before the final sector);
  • Crash at first bridge corner again;
  • Crash at the first tunnel;
  • Completed 1:51.55 lap, missing the loopcut at the end and then going into grass to avoid a crash.

BTW, here is a video: http://youtu.be/tc0fTPtFWvs

If just no Rh, I'll do one more lap now.

Yup - just NoRH, all cuts OK as usual.

Update (and probably a new lap) in the evening.

1:50.45, nth try, lucky-lucky loops. To go further, I need manual gears.

n is somewhere between 1 and 20. A lot closer to the latter one.

Duplode's time is not as hard as it seemed to be - even without a loopcut. (And after 30 mins of trying... ::))

Any opportunist RH drivers to take the lead? Dreadnaut? AbuRaf?

I crashed at the last tunnel on my 1:49.75 lap... Main improvement: sharp corner after the corkscrew.
