    I must admit it was a very lucky run, as you see on the screenshot it's a 0.3 second difference with my previous best time.

    The most important things are:

    > Don't swerve all over the place, and try to take corners sharply. Any speed up located at the outside of a bend should be approached from the centre of the road. (This applies especially to the one at the crest of the first hill, which I'm convinced they put there to make you drift to the outside and lose time)

    > Critical section 1: cutting the 90 left hander at the bottom of the hill. Pull up immediately after going over the crest and fly across the terrain. The straight section after the turn is long and slow, so you absolutely have to skip some of it or you'll die of old age before you reach the tunnel. Unlike on Talon's Reach, this doesn't involve flying through buildings and violating stick2trax, so feel free to ignore the official track layout.

    But don't get greedy and attempt to skip half of the track. The Feisar isn't a Piranha, all you'd achieve is a hard landing followed by an uncontrolled dive into the tunnel. Also, do not attempt to break the long distance flight record. Taking a shortcut is fine, but get back onto the track without delay. The Feisar will stay afloat for about a second without losing speed, but then it stalls and falls down like a brick, killing your lap time. This is very important.

    > Critical section 2: take the long wide left hander as tightly as possible, then as soon as the right wall drops away, turn hard right and use your second turbo! By using your turbo here, you can stay under turbo power until you're almost at the line. Don't wait too long to activate the turbo, or you'll crash at the upcoming bend.

    The final bend can be a bit tricky because you're going very fast and are likely to hit the outside wall, the pitlane divider, or end up swerving all over the place. The bend itself is short and sharp, so a short tap of the button will suffice. Just be sure to do so very early; and hope you come out on the left side of the track. Oversteering here causes you to swerve and lose all of your turbo speed.

    ...

    If you do both right, you get a lap time between 18.5 and 19.0 seconds. From there, work on nibbling off a few tenths of a second here and there until you can consistently do 18.3 laps. At that point, it's just a matter of doing so a few dozen times until you get lucky and everything happens to go your way...

    Ok that sounds good. I will try the things you mentioned.
    I already did many of them and I constantly do 19.0 at least. But 17.x wohooo, that's good. I don't think I can beat it.

    Cool

    Yeah I'm 100% sure I won't beat it either (aren't I humble??).

    When I started this challenge I thought for sure Talon's Reach or Exostra would take it. Now I am wondering, will Klies Bridge have any real competition???

    Heads up everyone, I will do a standings post on January 31 (if all goes well!) just using everyone's best times so far. Look for me, I'll be at the bottom!

    Cool Standings as of January 31st

    So we have had about a week to get this challenge going, and these are the standings for fastest FEISAR single race lap time:

    1. Brother Laz - WO64 (emulated) - Klies Bridge - 00:18:20
    2. Asayyeah - WO 2097 - Talon's Reach - 00:19:50
    3. iL Nik - WO Pure - Exostra Run - 00:19:76
    4. alterego - WO Pure - Staten Park - 00:20:78
    5. insertcoin - WO64 (emulated) - Klies Bridge - 00:22:70
    6. Medusa - WO XL - Talon's Reach - 00:22:70

    Regards to those who posted some great Time Trial laps but the challenge is for Single Race lap, so those laps are left out. Looking forward to seeing more times and perhaps seeing Klies Bridge lose its first place???

    Next standings post will be February 28th and standings on each game along with overall fastest lap will be posted.
