Finally got around to getting back into my GT rank attack.
Originally I'd planned to do the 'Ring in the Mk2 GT40, however it proved to be an utterly horrible car here and after an hour of setup work I simply got fed up having beaten it down to an 8:42 laptime.
I dare say it would have dropped more time if I'd continued working but setups for the Ring are so time consuming I'd lost the will to live by that point!

Given my planned vehicles for the remaining circuits it was between the Mk1 GT40 and the Lola for here so I chose the Lola as it has the higher topspeed (which is of course irrelevant at the Ring meaning I'm more disadvantaged should I run the GT40 somewhere like Monza or Sebring).
In contrast to the Mk2 the T70 was a joy to drive, still heavy and with questionable brakes but nice handling and a tendancy to go where I pointed it instead of following the course camber like the GT....

As you'll see this isn't an 'ideal' lap. It was about attempt number 5 so I was getting a tad bored by then and it was 6 seconds under par (Target time 8:31.9) so I went with it.
It's a generally tidy lap but has numerous saves, the best/worse of which being at Planzgarten where the car attempted to be trying to cartwheel down the hill due to my getting the throttle wrong - Ironic really as I'd managed a perfect controlled jump at flugplatz!

Laptime was an 8:25.15
