    Just wondering if anyone else here is playing around with this?
    The list is quite long, and while I recognize a lot of names there, I haven't ran across any from here (on a glance)

    I've found I'm becoming quite addicted to besting my own best times, trying to find that one run that defines perfection.
    It's tricky, and initially I arrogantly thought I'd go in, do a time a few seconds off the top 50 or so, and improve from there. Boy was I wrong!
    Initial laps were horrible, somewhere in the 1:37s. Two days trying to figure out where I was losing so much pace. Finally found something (sort of)..but still far off the top times

    Sitting mid 300s on the list right now (1:33.2xx), hoping to improve another second or two, at the least.
    How I could gain 4 SECONDS (an eternity) is beyond me. Feels like I'll run out of skills in the 32s, but perhaps I'm wrong, thought the same thing when I worked it into the 35s.

    Very interested in the next competition, M23 at Zandvoort.
    The car is a bit more my style, and I'll be interested to see how some of those that sit higher on the charts here fare in a very different machine from the past. Maybe a bit more chance to climb further up the list in that one as I tend to lap in a bit higher tier in such cars.

    So, is anyone else doing this?
    Be interested to see some times, if so. Please share if you wish!

    Also, here is a setup I've been messing around with a bit, for those that may wish to test this competition out a bit but don't want to vest effort in the setup (default isn't all that bad and some were actually lapping faster with mostly default than I'm lapping, even now, so take it with a grain of salt )
