I used the default during practice, that I could afford to do yesterday, being off work and put in a PB, for some reason I thought it best to use a past setup... wrong. Race 1 was not that good for me, my lovely Cobra was bottoming out and axle hoping!

Race 2 used a near default setup, has some great breaks early with peeps slipping off and finding myself weaving successfully through problems to leading the field for a few laps!  Sure was nice to see Guybrush and Phil.8 in the mirrors!  Drove defensively and was hoping to keep up the pace until I out braked myself on the second last left hander... but didn't take the smile off my face.

Great night's racing,  beat me over the head if I ever think to use a not AC track again with the Cobra!  :o

Now to think out next week's event.... maybe Cobra versus GT40 alternating between race one and two?? hmmm

I actually enjoyed practicing on MAM before we switch it over to Imola, my gap to Phil was certainly a lot less at MAM  ;D

R1 for me was awful, think I spun off 3 times in the first lap. Eventually caught up with to Bruce with a lap to go them spun off a again. A race worth forgetting.

R2 was much better, think I came 4th. Some of you guys were definitely braking a lot later than me, but I can't see how! I have to brake early and light, gradually increasing pressure to keep the thing in a straight line.

i think I brake hard and gradually decrease pressure untill I hopefully have it right and have no brake by the apex and start slowly gently accelerating
