I've had some great close racing with lots of side by side action...enjoyed it.
ab156, I think you were running into me in r2 again, hmm.  If your comment reg r3 refers to our collision it might be worth watching the replay. I've done it.
However, all in all it was great racing...I think we were once going through 3 or 4 turns side by side.
Cheers

I've watched the replay also. Agree we had some great side by side racing earlier. It's all good, different styles and approaches is what makes it fun.

Yeah, and these 25kg didn't make it easier. I think I may have blamed you by mistake for running into me at the hairpin...was a yellow one, but looking at Wally's statistics and graphs it seems you weren't near me...anyway, sorry if I did.

The season so far has frequently gone two good races and a dud so the aim tonight was consistency.
Managed to crack a pb in qual to start 6th.  The guys in front were a bit to quick and the there was a gap to the pack behind so
a reasonably quiet race to grab 5th.
Race 2 - Got away well gaining a few spots but on lap 5 I glanced killa and spun losing 5 spots.  Surprisingly though I had them
back within 2 laps thanks in part to others battling, getting home 3rd with Jeremy a huge 0.1 sec behind me on the line.
Race 3 - Managed to find myself in front of phil who proceeded to keep around 0.5 gap for basically the whole race.  His ballast
meant he didn't quite have it on the straights so I fought very hard to keep it tidy for 11 laps and was able to come home 2nd.
Best results for the season . . and some time actually! so pretty happy.

@Wally, I was watching you close in on me in my mirrors and was trying not to give any easy drafting pass! I had touched the wall in R1 so knew how cafeful you have to be. Sorry/Glad our little excurtion to the top of the track had the desired result. ::)
I wondered if that move up to the wall was deliberate. If so, it was a good move.

I had lots of fun, except in the first race. The first lap was awesome until I got a whack in the arse which seemed to make the car even slower in straights, and I eventually lost it into turn one and totally furphed the car. I spent 4 minutes in the pits and that race was a dud.

In races 2 and 3 I had some really good racing with a couple of people who pulled some fantastic passing moves into turn one, and into the fast chicane. Plenty of room was given and there was some really good side by side racing. I can't remember who they were but it was gooooood.
Unfortunately for Matthew I lost the rear a little and turned into him when he pulled his. I'm glad you continued, and I hope the car was alright.
Apart from that little misadventure the rest of the racing was clean and lots of fun for me.

LOL, pretty sure recovery time scales with damage

"A Veiw from the back of the Grid"

Thanks Wally!
Another well executed race night.
And in honor of the Daytona...





Well my aim for this week was to not get another 25kg penalty, and keep it clean.
R1, major side ways slide into turn 1 and I got in the way of Able, we kept on but he returned the favour later on the last banked turn and I was not sure which way to go, we both wrecked, escape to pits 300 sec wait race over lol
R1 was ended in with a touch of the wall which spat me into the infield. Nice thing about racing in VR is to be able to spin your head around and watch that car thats is bee lineing straight at you. Remember you go where you look and @Bueller was looking straight at me. No problem Bueller.
Wally why the 300 sec delay, does it scale with the amount of damage?

Sorry cant help it....


R2 I started in stone motherly last! Then nice thing was that up front people were spearing off in all directions. The only thing I needed to do was too keep it smooth and clean. @Seanus was behind me giving me the hurry up (see gif #2), but was able to fend him off.

I was draughting AbleArcher when I got too close to the wall on the banked section and hit it, which damaged my aero, broke my suspension and ruined my top speed.

So on to the Queenland, let the sun shine.

Hi Wally,
No mention that I was only on the ripple strip because Jeremy hit me up the arse in the middle of the previous turn which let Kcender breeze through into 2nd place???
Sorry, you're right. I missed the earlier hit of Jeremy into your rear which let Kcender past. So that's a penalty to Jeremy for that impact.
