    When you find a track and date that results in an interesting day out, record it here!
    I'll start with Oulton Park and Porsche Cup:
    11/01/2020 ( winter )
    P - 8am
    Q-12pm
    R-3pm
    Morning session almost dark, cold with steady rain and wet track, sun coming up. Hard work.
    Qualifying -light cloud but wet track. Dare to try slicks for pole later in session.
    Race - Raining again with a bit of sun breaking through. Slippery.
    Hard work but great fun.

    What a great idea. Could get some brilliant situational settings.

    This from a earlier thread seems appropriate here , thanks @ozcanuck.
    7AM Real weather , Real Time, Norschliefer 24hr , GTE BMW
    Light intermittent rain with mist & fog in the Valley sections and Sun rise Shining over the Mountains. In VR is something else. Lost for words.............
    P.S.
    It was the prac session of a customer championship with the race setting set at todays/current date, so I think prac session and qual is 2 day before race . and you can only set the current date for race session then it calculates prac and Qual dates. Hope that makes sense.

    Yes the Cherry blossom , must be spring time irl?

    I've been holding off on Nords for AMS2 as I have it in RRE and AC, but the weather and night racing are making that a must have!

    Jan 1st, 2020 (start of best year ever), 14:00 h, Nordschleife. Stick on the wet tyres, enjoy the winter wonderland of a wet track on a beautiful sunny winter day. :)

    If you want a hot summer day at the Nurburgring - may I suggest 9th June 2015.
    Track temp = 39 degrees C. Air temp = 28 degrees C.

    I figured I'd try out this feature, so I looked up a history of track temperatures and found this page:
    (I'm focusing on June as it's a good German summer month).

    June Climate History for Nurburgring Circuit | Motorsport | Germany

    Then we have the temperature history graph from that page, which made me choose 9 June 2015.
    Nurburgring Circuit Track Temperature Chart

    ..add in some light clouds, set time to 1 pm & put the track rubber to whatever you fancy.
    Great feature. I wasn't sure if it would appeal, but I can see real value in it.

    I _fully_ agree in general, but apparently in the town of Nurburg - it is. At least over the last few years.
    Just to clarify for Australians (I'm 1/4 btw) - the track's not in Darwin, or the outback, so temperatures will be a little more mild.

    It's all relative, it was 12 here today and that is bitterly cold by our standards.

    Hmmm.....need to setup the Adelaide Clipsal 500 from a few years ago, before cool suits, when they had a poor driver stop on track with heat exhaustion, 40+. See how the V8 copes with that!
    Edit: that would be March 25 and 26, 2006. Steve Owens passes out and hit a wall in Race 1 on Sat.. 35+, 60 in the car. Race usually starts late in the day...3pm. Practice and Qualy mid-morning.
    Update: Tried that and the ambient for Race 1 was a bit lower than expected ( 30C) but track temp listed as 55C, so its still pretty hot!

    47 or 48 for me, back when I was younger and cope with it better. Still every summer now we still get a couple of days around 44-45 each year.
