I had a bizarre night.
First race I hit Simone after he'd disappeared on the main straight and reappeared in front of me.....apparently. I must have hit a ghost because after I rejoined the track I saw he was still in 14th so I must have smacked a phantom car after a connection glitch.
That screwed race one.
Race two I had a car perform the most magical stunt car trick I've seen in some time by hitting a little rise in the road and continuing on like the end of Grease. I was distracted and crashed. My windscreen was shattered but the car seemed okay so I kept going, spinning a few times and thoroughly hating this car. I didn't like the other one we were considering either so I think it might be a long season.

That was not much fun.
Race 1: Tried to avoid someone else's accident and didn't.
Race 2: Tried to avoid someone else's accident and didn't.
Race 3: Avoided all others accidents by spinning off the track at least three times myself. I don't know what happened but the car was awful so it's possible I forgot to load my setup.
Good season though, thanks blokes.

Well that was exciting, and disappointing.
All through practice and qualifying I struggled to get close to my early week practice time, and qualified poorly.
Race 1 was a mix of finding a little bit of pace and taking advantage of others misfortune to be racing in 6th and watching Rob and Wally getting closer as the laps went by. Rob had a couple of goes to get past and couldn't quite manage it and must have a made a little mistake that Wally took advantage of.
Then Wally hassled me for the last few laps, but I didn't make an error big enough to allow him to pass. It was great racing.
Race 2: Not so good. I spun while smiling at the others spinning in front of me and ended up last. I got a couple of positions back through them making errors, but it was not a good race.
Race3: It got worse. I was going okay but lost sight of my brake marker and missed it by a metre or two. It was all I needed to smack poor old Dave O in the arse spinning us both, and I finished where I deserved, in last. Sorry Dave.
After race 1 and a 6th I thought I'd finally turned things around, but I soon put that to bed.
I thought it was a good night overall and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially Race 1.

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.

Mixed night for me. I had periods of good racing interspersed with being tagged in other people accidents, or getting tagged avoiding someone getting out of shape, and had at least one off of my own volition. I had a great deal of fun racing on this track though, it is very nice. Nice chase Wally, and it was refreshing for you to make the big mistake and not me for a change.

Hi all,That sucks.
TWO DAYS!!!!!! It could be worse, but I'm a little pissed off because I've managed to do some practice. Pity I don't have that much data with my phone, the 4G looks as fast as some NBN plans. lol, ping is 14ms though. There could be a miracle and it might get fixed, but I doubt it. Have a good race fellows.

Sorry I don't think I can make it tonight. Telstra have screwed me with an outage they expect to have resolved within the next two days. Apparently it's a NBN outage..... I'm not on the fricken NBN. Grrrrrrrrr

I didn't get an opportunity to practice at all and only downloaded the track with 15 minutes of practice left. Lucky there were only about four corners to learn.
Race 1 was okay but the first chicken was a little tough with the bump and rebound I had from the practice race, but made a few spots and learnt the track and had a pretty good race with Dave O who loved, it seemed, to drive off the track whenever he started pulling away.
Race 2 was okay but had a huge off when I tried to stick on the outside of Bacchulum on the fast corner after the back straight. Stuck half a tyre on the grass and caused major damage with a lap to go.
Race 3 was much better after I changed bump and rebound for the better (for a change), made a few spots on the start, and got lucky at the first chicken and avoided any damage. The car seemed to be a little faster on the straight and getting a tow without it.
Was having fun mainly getting chased by faster blokes who'd driven off the circuit earlier in the race. Wally got past me with a couple to go and I thought I had a chance to hold off Keith but Wally was a bit slow on the corner before the back straight and I got baulked a little. It was enough for Keith to cruise by on the straight and that's where I finished.
I'm glad I made it, it was a fun track with those cars.
