Would anyone be interested in a lap time competition of sorts? We used to have quite a few of these years ago, but I can't seem to locate anything that is terribly organized on here for an F1 game. Why F1 2012? Well, because it's probably the most accessible F1 game these days and most people have something that can run the game.

We wouldn't have to have anything too serious or ultra competitive and anyone would obviously be welcome to submit times. Heck, I don't even have F1 2012 at the moment though I do have the 2010 on my PC and 2011 on my PS3. It doesn't take long to get up to speed in Codemasters' games though, so I wouldn't be too worried about not playing F1 2012 yet.

There could be very agreeable deadlines for each "event" such as having a full week or two to post what is you feel is your best time since, after all, most of us are adults with schedules. So, is there any interest for this? If so, what do you folks would be the best way to go about it? Fixed car setups or leave it up to the individual? Does F1 2012 even allow thorough car setups?

Anyway, input! Fire away!

Well, that's one person! I honestly expected a little more reception than this considering we've had these in the past, but ah well. Wait and see. :)

Sorry it's my first post, I joined to make a comment on the Honda thread but it wouldn't let me?

Anyway. Good times there Sin. Mine are all set on Xbox live and from memory are similar or slightly slower. I will post them up over the weekend.

I just recently recorded a video of my lap for my friend, but I don't mind sharing it here.
Unfortunately I use driving assists, but it's really hard with keyboard and very oversteery setup, so please forgive me :)

Red Bull at Brazil 1.11.162

Only been playing F1 2012 a little since yesterday after I noticed it was dirt cheap on Steam. Don't have a wheel and use a gamepad that's really rough on my poor thumbs. Did a little bit of Canada and ended with 1:15.871.

That best lap was exceptionally squirrelly, so I know I can do much better. Must play more and improve!
