Farewell Zandvoort, and on to Mid Ohio

I would have posted video of a 1.10.7 from Zandvoort Club. I would have, but somehow iRacing "lost" the lap.

I know for sure I drove it, it's down as my overall best time, but it just didn't appear in the session, or under my lap times for the session, and the lap wasn't exported.

It's a little frustrating, but it's not the end of the world, although for one reason or another I couldn't replicate the time before the end of the week.

I just wish this layout would be used again next season. The GP layout is just too long for it. But there's so much clamour for the longer layouts. What people actually mean is they like the long layouts, not necessarily the Skip Barber on the longer layouts. VIR is another example. We've driven the full, excruciating, layout in the Skippy a lot more frequently than the short layouts, which are much more fun.

We now move on to Mid Ohio.

For some reason I feel a bit flat there. I was done after an hours practise - still about a second short of my target time. Perhaps I'll feel more motivated tomorrow.

I did have to turn the force feedback down from 24 to 18. Turning in at turn one it has always felt like there's a "ridge" I have to jerk the wheel over. Which makes the corner much more treacherous. I have no idea what that is, but it does seem to occur with a late braking point. Reducing the force feedback and pulling my braking point back slightly seems to fix it.
