Practice definitely helps.... a lot. I've found that whereas in Forza I can get on the pace within 4 or 5 laps with pretty much any car/track combination, in PCars I end up building speed through a session. Last night we ran tracks which, although run by me for the first time in PCars, I had run in Forza. Equally, I'd run the Ginetta before and had a rough and ready tune to use. The result was that I was able to put in good lap times for a change and even get comfortably mid-pack. I think it's definitely one of those games where you have to put the work in, but once you do the satisfaction is very high.

Tonight I've spent the last 3 hours tuning and running at Laguna Seca and I've finally got into the mid 1.24's. A whole 2s quicker then last night and up there with @smokinmasta times from last night , so I'm well pleased with that.

This game is going to take me a long time to get up to speed because I'm shite at tuning and I've turned off the magical pixie line, so I have to learn all the tracks again

Nice one only got a 25.5 in practice. Jamesey banged in a mid 24. Eventually got a 1.24.5xx on lap 5 or 6. Tyre wear and real fuel used last night BTW as we will in series
This isnt hotlapping its racing

That is why I really like the longer races because you have to think about fuel loads and tyre wear, and when pit stops are included it will really add a new element that was missing from Forza

That's it, make it even harder for me to get consistent laptimes

Lol might even try a race with 5x tyre wear to enforce a pit stop. Got to be worth giving these options a go
