Could manage to go into the low 49' qualy pace and mid to high 50' race pace. Tire wear wise I had 37% wear after half a tank which is roughly 2,3% wear per lap (front right). Getting into the right direction
I might be around for some practice (although I am not participating in the race). Depends on whether the Skyrim-affinity (started the game for the 5th time now, and finally want to finish it) takes over, or the racing-mood is stronger.
