Over it seems. leader improved of another 0.1 seconds

At least I'm glad I made it in the top 100.

I hope we'll have some stats on this event that could be fun, if not maybe for next event.

Congrats @veilsidebr, extremely good performance.

The gaps are so big, that's unusual for a 1000+ player competition.

Congratulations to veilsidebr indeed.

As for the gap. Thankfully we don't have guys like Greger Huttu or Hugo Luis on this competition. Then we would see an even bigger gap, I am afraid. :a43:

Respect veilsidebr and congrats ! I hope we see us in future in multiplayer to drive some rounds. I've been very happy to see so much fast guys here and if i have some more time to train and pCars feels some better for me i would be delighted to race with you too. Wish you much fun and best regards to the SMS team and do a good job for us if you create some great track ;)

So close, so close, there's still a 0.513s gap :p

Not that I'm anyway near your times.

More like 3s away (and 2.5s of the second).

I'd like a poll, yes or no to aliens :a06:

Hey guys!

I really want to thank everyone for the supporting messages, i read and appreciated all of them quite alot!!! Thanks! ;)

Also one BIG thank you for the SMS team on giving us the chance to closely know the Studio headquarters and meet with the dev team. I am trully convinced this will be an amazing opportunity for me to learn many things, including those that go "underground the scenes" during all the development phase of a game. I will be very pleased to be able to!

Not forgetting to mention this will be my VERY FIRST time abroad Brazil, so i can't tell how much anxious i am to finally know a different place, with different people where i can practice my english and learn a world of different things! :cool:

Taking part on this competition was fairly awesome, as before starting it i really didn't think i'd figure out in the top 5 so many people have tried. Luckly i was able to set a good lap and survive! :cool:

As requested i am posting my car setup screens right here. They are exactly what i used yesterday in my 1'12.533 lap which i also believe to be possible a 1'12,430 somehow (maybe even lower for some):

I must admit to be pretty much curious on seeing whether people will improve their time or not with this set, because most of times i end up sitting on a default setup to spend most of the time trying to nail whatever the car is able to and very offtenly i achieving any setup results. So, i'll be happy to know that someone improved his own time meaning my setup work was at least acceptable! :o

Be sure and load up on some MP3 and movies and such. It's nearly a 12 hour flight, and you will be jet lagged like crazy when you arrive. When I've gone to London from the US, I end up arriving in the AM of the next day and so end up just staying awake for the day. It can be difficult.

Hope you get a chance to show the devs how you managed to crush everyone else!

Hehe i appreciate the tips, some people already told me about this jet lag thing but i don't damn have an idea! My farthest trip in a plane was about 3 hours long, so i believe i might have plenty of time for some movie watching. :P

Yeah will be hell fun to play with the dev crew!

Rob Prange

I wouldn't worry about jet lag too much, not everyone is affected by it. Ive been to various trips to Brazil & Southeast Asia and Ive never suffered from it. Just try to sleep a much as possible on the plane :)

Well done, veilsidebr!! Thanks for posting the setup! I don't blame you a bit for not sharing until now!!! Hehe.

Please help design Suzuka!!! Maybe you can talk them into flying you to Japan!!

It was a fantastic lap time and glad you enjoyed the competition! We'll be seeing you soon then! Get thinking of that track design! (and it can't be Interlagos) ;)

I don't find the info, the first price is really huge, then I hope that the 2nd and 3rd player will win something good.;)

Thanks a lot for sharing your setup!
I'll have a go with it later on, I'm curios what I can do with it. Looks very different from mine.

Have fun in London! Oh, and if you find any hippos in their studios, please let us know. :D

If you mean just in regular Time Trial mode, if you close the game and start it again your times should appear.

Congratulations mate, well deserved.

On a related note, were the leaderboards reset or something? When I click find me, it shows me as a 1:18.150, which is an old, old time. My best ended up at around a 1:15.40, but that ones seems to have disappeared?
