I haven't run a single lap of Gentrack and he Cobra and won't be back from work until around 8 so I may miss it.  I also don't know how Ill fair without ABS with this new and much worse brake I'm using so if I can't get the hang of it in practice I might pull out anyway as I don't want to ruin someone's race.

I don't even have Gentrack installed! I don't even know what it looks like! And you can be sure, I'll be out there, ruining peoples race...

you don't break anyway.

will miss you Bird and Guy... Dick, it is "very slow in" for most corners, 1st and 2nds, so just practice that and you will be okay...

Hijacking Bird's thread..

I am having doubts about making it home on time this Thursday for round... umm 5?
Of cause I'll be speeding in RL to get home in time.. Just to slide off track every second corner.

Round 6, Longford_67, hope you make it Dick, race 1 will be a short race on the long track, and race 2 will longer on Longford long track!
Just brake early, really early at Longford and and then boot it, progressively out of the turn :)

I take it that you are already on your way home? Even with your version of "speeding" I think you should be able to make it home, from anywhere in the country by thursday nite.  ;D

Sorry Bruce I'm going to miss Thursday night.  Away for work and things are taking a bit longer than expected.

Hope everyone has fun.

haha, I should have had a few drinks, the night started badly after putting plenty of prac, with my pedals/clutch crapping out and causing all sort of problems.
And with that, I didn't get to restart the server for the second race and had thought the logs would have had all races, but only one!  I will update this,
could someone list the other results? or at least individuals there placings... I didn't save any replays with dramas at my end.
Thanks.
