I reckon the slowest cars on the shortest tracks possible, give everyone a chance to brush up on race craft

So you saying the FIAT 595 or Peugeot 504?  Should be fun  ;D

Rather satisfied with the result, wins do not often come around  :)

After the previous races I made an effort to try and stay out of trouble, going so far as to give up a number of places on the first few laps laps of every race. That together with a LOT of luck meant I avoided the race 2 pile up. That meant an easy a race 3 as could be but I was relieved when the finish line came up. Strangely my race 3 laptimes was a bit slower than expected, maybe a wind change?

(As for restrictor, the rules are known before the race so has to be factored into the level of aggression used during the race, I suffered in the previous races from it but was mostly my own fault. And on most race tracks the penalty is not that severe unless you have a 50kg penalty. The 50 kg penalty is drastic and from experience I can say that it is extremely difficult not to finish at the back with it, but is that not the idea?)

These Phil quotes seems to be spreading!

Not so sure that would have qualified as "fun run", sweat was running at the end of the race. The cobra plus bumpy track makes for hard work, so may areas that require a light tough on the throttle.

Finally got some pace in the last few laps, as if something just clicked and the car started flowing around the corners, should have hanged in there Viper  ;D  But Wally had this one easily in the bag, faultless and quick, nice driving.

(ps, your result links are busted Phil)

Wally's watching a different replay to the one I see.

lol Its very rare to disagree with Wally  but I'll go Russ. Its all very slight touches, nothing on purpose but majority of error still belongs to Godzilla.

And apologies to Dadio, I made a bad error taking him out into the first chicane during race 2, 100% my fault  :'(

I know we suppose to keep two wheels inside the white line but what if there are no white line, only a yellow one? Can we then use all of the curb  ???

Watched the replay a heap of times now, was hard and at times very close racing, unfortunate it ended the way it did as would have been an epic battle

yeah it was not a "burn at the stake" event, and admittedly on that track almost very overtake were always going to have some risk. Going to be fun watching you managing risks as the season goes on since you right up there with a chance to win the season... cannot afford not to finish Godzilla  ;D

Looked like the orange car had enough overlap that the white one should have left some room

Disagree, contact was made behind the white cars rear wheel, thus orange was not far enough alongside to have a right to the apex in my opinion,

Really struggled with getting the setup right. The uneven track played havoc with whatever setup I tried, the fact that other cars did not appear to struggle so much was extremely frustrating.Was so bad that trying to follow other drivers in race would see me go offroading.

Race two was probably my best Thursday drive yet, no mistakes and good consistency in a evil car to finish just in front of a fast gaining Bueller.  Even managed to break into the 25's and then on the final lap the 24's!

Try to remember, Godzilla, everyone has different braking points (hence why some people are faster than others).
Just because you don't brake there, doesn't mean no-one does. ;)

Different braking points I get, but braking where there’s no braking is dangerous.

Just shows how bad my setup was  ;D Had to brake to avoid going straight on!

Hi Wally: my parents in law are visiting and we'll be taking a trip to NZ, so I'll miss this race and the next one. Sorry.

Ah finally I'll finish the race without contact  ;D

In seriousness, enjoy NZ, always wanted to visit the land of the long white cloud.

Lesson learned, do not earn Wally's wrath. The bag of cement loaded in my BMW killed any chance of a good result  :'(   
You're saying it wrong. It should be "Lesson learned, do not run into the back of anyone on the opening lap" :)

No no no  ;D  the lesson is; DON'T GET CAUGHT!

Lesson learned, do not earn Wally's wrath. The bag of cement loaded in my BMW killed any chance of a good result  :'(   Overall had some good battles, had some great passes put on me (Grat & Jamie).

And thanks Seanus for waiting on me after our contact, an unfortunate incident which I blame on Wally for being so slow ahead of me  :)  But it is always good to see a driver redress if they cause an accident.
