There is a little feature that could be useful.

1) Open gpbikes.ini and add the following lines

[edit]
groove=1

2) Ride several laps in testing mode on a track to create the groove ( it's possible to use groove_multiplier to generate it faster )
3) Press left ctrl + g: a file named temp.grv will be saved in the GP Bikes installation folder ( a message should be displayed on screen )
4) Rename temp.grv to track_id.grv ( for example: victoria.grv ) and move it to the proper track folder, with the matching TRP file
5) GP Bikes should automatically read this grv file at track load time

Question about the groove build up....

Is there a saturation point? by this i mean i can drive 1000 laps, 2000, 9000 etc etc.
Does it keep building or is there a X amount of laps at which it doesn't work anymore?

Im asking because it would be a bummer if i did it al for nothing.

thank you

Yes, there is a saturation point.

It doesn't depend on the number of laps.
It depends on the tyre used and the riding style, and the number of times the bike passes on the same point on the track.
With qualify tyres groove is generated much faster, for example.
You can check visually: when a point on the track is very dark, it will not get any more groove.

oke ty, i noticed quicker build up with qualifying tires indeed.

I changed gpbikes.ini file, used multiplier groove but
Why doesn't work?
After 30 laps at silverstone no temp.grv file created
