Nobody puts Mael in the corner.Lotus 49?Go and stand in the corner!
Now armco's That's a different matter!
If we going to do multi-class races how about requiring teams to be split into the two classes? It may help to balance the class numbers.

All I can say is that if double moves to block in braking zones and not being able to drive in a straight line are the new order of business.... next week is going to be a crashfest
Well we are following the example set by the professional F1 boys!

Thought I share this poem created Krunch from RACEONOZ after a Monday race at the Ring.

I think I stuffed up Mael's second race too , I guess you were not expecting me to be going so slow in that part of the track.
That was telstra's fault. From my view you took a very narrow line through to corner staying leaving enough space for me to go around the outside. Just as I came alongside you, your car suddenly jumped onto my bonnet
I've been having a lot of these mini-lags lately. The town where I live is suppose to receive NBN during October which should help a LOT, but am skeptical if it would reach my house.

Im just surprised mael lasted not 1, but 2 races without crashing.
You and me both Joe. But luckily everybody gave me a wide berth, must be scared or something? At least the next race has some good tight corners made for rubbing doors
Yay its a badge of honor, although I suspect by the last race of the season I will not be able to keep the lead losing 10 or more points a around
Problem is once anybody gets close to you on the points table they will also have close to 100% restrictor. And keeping up with you on equal footing is near impossible

Two solid races. In race one got handed a substantial lead during the opening first few corners. A easy win was on the cards if I managed to keep it clean.
Race two was a race long effort to put pressure on Buellers, it would have required a mistake from him to give me a chance to overtake. In total he ran slightly wide twice, touched a sausage curb once but no mistake big enough to even give me a chance to get close. Well driven!
Together with Freezer's solid results Team Maki Engineering championship bid is still alive, sadly Freezer may feel a bit overweight next week
Three cheers for high mounted UNSPRUNG wings.
Might have to explain the unsprung statement

Better to watch Phil and Bacchulum, they the ones who tutor us how to drive properly
I suspect the Mclaren is also a bit easier and quicker than the Lotus around Bridgehampton.

I didn't enjoy failing to manage that much at all. No practice, default setup and incorrect tyre pressures probably didn't help much.
The car does seem extra-ordinary sensitive to tire pressures. I thought i heard somewhere that 28 was the target hot pressure so tried to set the car up for that. No matter what lines I drove, what camber or damper settings were used I could not average better than 1:44 to 1:43.
Then just before quali I had a look at Kunos's tire app which suggested 38 as the target pressure. Adjusting pressures brought me immediately into the 1:39's
For the race, I had a fun time. Some arguments with Phil, a wall and the fuel calculator lead to a solid 3rd place finish (BTW The wall won the argument)

I hate myself for saying this, but should we consider damage off for Tuesday? Fun run nights are usually reduced numbers anyway, and with it being so easy to wreck the car here it would be a shame to loose anyone who does turn up due to a crash.
I want to ask if you too scared to take on the mountain with 100% damage but since I cannot do 3 laps without destroying my car I'll keep quit
