Apr 10: New Jersey Motorsports Park (2 x 25 laps)

This is the final round of the season, which will make a few people happy  :o . Matthew has a healthy 102 point lead over Grat, with Grat and Phil.8 still a mathematical chance to cause an upset.

This is a really great track and flows very well. I love the witches hats cause it makes it easier to learn. I wish more tracks had them.

I know what you mean - I'm a fan of witches hats too. One mod track (I can't remember which) actually had a practice layout which added more witches hats for apexes and corner entry/exit points, which was a nice touch.

Yeah I wish more had it, for example in practice mode they should have the witches hats out.

A bit tricky here... as is often the case here, getting some wheels on the grass can spin you off the track nicely, and the rear left takes a pounding with that long final corner. I tried hards here, which keeps the temps in an optimal range, but it still doesn't gain any lap time advantage.

I can't race probably for a week or two.

I hurt my back again recently and I thought I was OK till I further tweaked it on Friday. I then nearly overdosed on painkillers (no joke), not exactly my fault but I did end up throwing up 10 times and then I tore my esophagus which resulted in more throwing up.
ATM I can't sit down on a seat without pain.
I really wanted to put in a good effort for the last round!!!


SideNote: I now know the guy who runs the Formula Vee's in QLD and I now have access to tickets to Queensland raceway, Lakeside raceway and warrick (not sure on spelling).  It's only for the days where the HQ's race, hyundai, mx5's and Formula Vee's race. At QR they have more classes and I think pro class as well.
Yesterday was Lakeside and it was pretty good fun.

Next race is at Warrick in June (first weekend) if you're interested tell me and I can get you in for free.

 it is very tricky, mediums get very warm on the lefts and after a few laps start losing lap time,  I tried hards, but found the rights stayed a bit too cool, but only did about 5 laps on them, they might warm more during a full race

Good one Phil. All those painkillers must have helped... or are you so high you're going to float over the track?

I am on some meds but I am fairly sure I can still drive but I'll probably just be at the back.
