Can I do the first half hour? Serious request.  I couldn't do 2 hours, but I noted Corvette :)

The vette's unpopular. I haven't really tested its tyre/fuel endurance - maybe it chews through them faster than the other two cars.

I think tyres are going to suffer here, but as I am planning on only running for a short period just to hear the sounds, I'll won't be afflicted by it.

Wally, could you put me down as a reserve please. If I can make it I will keep Bruce company in the Vette.

not that fond of the oval section of this track, it's definitely too small width wise, I can see some bad accidents because of it.
I think it's a good mix of oval and road circuit.

I don't mind the mix, it's the unrealistically skinny banked corners I don't like. It's not even 2 lanes wide from what I can see.

Eleven metres wide versus twelve in real life. But you're best not to go hard up against the wall as AC's collision don't work at such angles and weird things happen up there.

Hey. I have never driven this track and I had no time to try it during the week. I'll see if I can manage to get a decent idea of it today (Sunday) and let you know. If I feel I am at least not dangerous, I'll ask you for a spot on Tuesday.

Looks like I should be able not to crash into all of you at the first turn (though reference points are fewer than on official tracks, I would say). I can take a Ferrari. Thank you.
