With the two braking-whilst-turning sections, this is going to be mistake-tastic.

Anyone set any times? I'm guessing it will be around the 2 minute mark like the others

I have done a 2:08 in my first time out with the Lotus.  I will try the Rookie a little later.

I'm also in the 2:08 bracket. Gone for a different suspension geometry here.

Found some time to have a go. 2:04s in the lotus and 2:02s in the rookie. Definitely harder in the rookie because of the two ddodgy braking zones and spent more setup time on that than the lotus. Rooke seems to be a trade off of turning ability vs stability. Both by no means perfect lap style yet though. Could probably reduce those by 1s maybe.

I'm trying to get a good balance for braking and cornering. Coasting into the final corner really helps with the stability but doesn't attack the laptime much.

Well done Jac.

Iíve not really driven this car much at all and donít like Snetterton. I expected to be towards the back, So I was a little surprised in Q.

I was thinking the race would be a bit dull tootling around in 3rd or hoping the guys behind just had a bad Q and would mix it up. How wrong was I.

Good fun with Matt both he and Jac had the pace on me tbh but we had a good battle.
