Unfortunately I'll miss this race.

Great nights racing! Enjoyed the track also as it was a real challenge, quite tricky to get the power down over the bumps and slippery ripple strips but rewarding. Still loving these cars can't believe there is only a few rounds left.

 Congatulations to all the winners not an easy thing on this track. I also had a great night of racing with I think , all the other drivers behind me at some stage, as I had lots of different coloured cars in my rearview mirror, if only briefly :(. One of the highlights was being passed by Bacchulum in the dipper, I would not have thought it possible :o . I really believe these cars grow on you with more time driving them.

With the longer track next week a big rollup would be good,  with that in mind this is my setup for the Lola Ford which makes it very driveable just adjust the gear ratios.

I would have liked, actually needed, more practice at this track. I was trying out the gt cars at daytona before I realised the time and only just made it for the qualifying round. Enjoyed the racing with you guys and the car/track combo is great. Not sure why the ripple strips on the exits are like quick sand, it caught me out quite often, getting sucked into it and then even worse dragging myself out of it and coming back across the track toward other cars. Still a lot of fun thanks guys

Like bueller I downloaded the track just in time for qually so qually and race 1 was my practice. By race 2 I'd found that groove Mael and Bacc were referring too. Was looking good to win race 3 too but coming down the corkscrew on lap 6 I got a little over confident; I had a good line so have it a little gas through the steep right and spun off onto the gravel. Great fun.
