    Unfortunately I have to say that the AI in the rain is an absolute disaster.
    Please fix that.

    Which AI? GT3? mods? GTE? Tatuus? The newly announced work around for racing in the rain is the save the track surface while it is raining. Like during practice or Qualifying. Then load that for the race itself. I haven't tried it yet so I can't verify it works.

    Thought so. But I don't think this is so much a track issue as problems with the GT3 cars themselves. There seems to be a fundamental handling flaw with the GT3 carset. While the AIW file may not be perfect, it is most likely not the main culprit, The GT3 cars themselves, especially the Merc are at fault. Now this is a SHAME since GT3 is the 24hr core series at Spa. You would think, that with Nords & Spa that depend upon GT3 cars for a large portion of their 24hr fields, S397 would hopefully have discovered the cause and issued a cure.(and if Bathust, Rolex24 or Road Atlanta someday joins the Laserscanned package of tracks, there too you would want picture perfect GT3 AI behaivior.)

    Great track but is the AI is very slow here?
    With the Ferrari GTE , AI at 110% I’m one second faster and I didn’t do even a perfect lap.

    Raced a 3-hour WEC style multi-class race, LMP2, LMP3, and GTE. LMP2 ai cars sliding off track at numerous corners. Also noticed ai cars not passing back markers on the pit in lap, I thought this was fixed.

    The AI following a pitting car HAS NOT BEEN FIXED. None of the yellow flag issues, none of the rain/dry tire issues have been fixed. (although there is a work-around for the rain tire) Almost all development has been targeted at the UI, Online Comp system, and graphics. Very very VERY little has been pointed directly to benefit offline racing. Some AIW fixes for tracks like Monaco.

    Bought it thanks
    Needs less detail for “track detail “ graphic settings med & even less for “ low “ to help fps

    I’ll shelve it for now

    ( same as new monza )

    I understand your reasoning, requiring fps improvements, but the general trend for S397 has been to add graphic features that unfortunately also impact framerates. Getting them to reverse course, even as an option might be as difficult as getting the Titanic to turn.

    I think that this track has some performance issues. I understand that this game needs better quality tracks but
    it's strange to do 90 fps in the first lap and in the second lap only 30/50 without reasons.
    Currently the rfactor's biggest problem is optimization, but I think they will fix all the problems with the time ( I hope...)

    Let's hope it's not another MICKY MOUSE chicane, the one at the end of the lap is bad enough, I still enjoy the track though. Too many tracks have been spoilt with Micky Mouse chicanes and really tight hairpins.

    Huh? What chicane?

    There's no chicane being added. In fact, I believe no corners are being changed at all - it's purely about the runoff areas.

    It was meant as a more general comment of what has been happening to a lot of tracks over the past few years.

    I saw some photos with changes to eau rouge potentially. But it is supposed to be just gravel traps and new grandstands.

    FIM Endurance World Championship is running 24 hours at Spa in 2022, run off is a bit of an issue on a motorcycle in certain areas at Spa given the speed you can carry (I didn't, rolling seemed more sensible) into areas like Eau Rouge / Kemmel.
