so close! Gambled on the SS strat which was 5 - 10 seconds slower than that H S strat by numbers but gave better open track position in the first stint - Phil came out ater his late stop only 7 seconds in front and I started to gain for a few laps but then his newer tyres came good and he pulled a few seconds on me
also - did anyone else need 170+ litres to make the race or the DFV in the Lotus rather thirsty ?

well that all went terribly wrong
some windows update rendered the soundcard for the shakers unknown to the system which made the car feel weird (first world problems i know) - then the shifter's hall sensor for 2nd gear went a bit off meaning the 1st to 2nd shift at 3 points on track was a lottery at best (muich yellow gearbox and missed shifts were seen
finally i miscalculated how far the hards would run and committed to a HH strat when H S would have been viable with less top up fuel, faster finish and less time in the pits
also the wind was blowing the wrong direction, sun was in my eyes and didnt wear lucky socks + any other excuses

lol - all good I take a really narrow entry there (if im thinking of the right pass) that would probably usually be considered off line so i reckon you were in the right place - no harm done

Enjoyed the race, not quite as lonely as the Ferrari test. And it certainly paid to be accurate and deliberate with the gear changes, no flat shifting!
Nah all good - i thought that was my fault - after missing out on the Lotus I rushed a blind guess of a set on the Mclaren and ran too soft and heavy so I was laying chassis under braking so I had no control at that point
Car was odd - was evil laps 1 - 5 then came good on mid fuel then became evil again toward the end - seems like it has rubbish geometry that is super sensitive to travel and ride height requiring over stiff suspension to control it which isnt the way to go on the old things - saved by a long no stop strategy
Dead keen on these over the v10s though

Thought it was a good race including distance and wear / fuel
My math suggested a one stop Hard Hard was possible and assuming no errors could be up to 2.1 seconds faster over the entire race than a Med Med Med 2 stop but the Med Med Med gave a lighter car on average and was more competitive in traffic or groups. Given Marty's party mode of a qualli lap I decided the med med med was best to make sure i could fight at the start.
Def multiple strategy possible for the race - was good - these races will be won on strategy as much as outright pace i reckon

I'm losing a fair bit of time down the bottom of the esses somehow, compared to the leaders. I'll have to watch Phil's line on the night
that massive ripple strip on the exit of the esses is totally part of the track - as is the end of the access road after it

best racing for a long time there with matt - i had ... erm...brake fade .... at the end of race one and had a light coming together at turn one but race two was magic with 2 mistakes resulting in 2 swapped places then ruined tyres for me defending a rather fast matt behind - not sure what happened under the bridge on the last lap though :S
good season - see yall in the v10s
