Is this tonight? Been away just got back

Yes pls

Will miss this one. School holidays and am down in Canberra.

Now we're talking!!

It's definitely time for a new car. :-*

Hear hear. I've never disliked a car so much that I've pretty much abandoned a season, but with some illness mixed in I just couldn't get motivated to join in this season. Roll on the next.

After all my moaning about being off the pace in practice, I managed my best result in race 2 - a 5th.

Race 1 was pretty intense, defensively. I managed to put an opening lap pass on Mael in the esses, but after that I couldn't really challenge Russ and Keith in front of me, who slowly pulled out an unassailable lead, but I had ab156 on my hammer the whole race, keeping the pressure on me. I eventually had an oversteer moment which let AB past, but a couple of laps later he made a mistake of his own and I could get my spot back. I hung on despite a couple of enthusiastic "hurry up" taps from AB that gave me more tankslapper practice ;)

Race 2 I was pretty much sandwiched between Keith in front (who was battling hard with Jeremy), and Shayne then Matthew behind me. Less than a second gap front and back, which was pretty intense, and some good tight racing, with zero contacts for me.

You have improved a lot wally!  Nice!!!

Or did you just get a lot worse Simone  ;D

Will miss tonight too unfortunately. Been unwell for 4 days with severe bouts pain in my right side with nausea and just generally feeling shite. I've used Dr Google to diagnose myself with gallstones or a gallbladder infection so I'm heading to the real doctor tomorrow.

Also going to miss it as crook as mate. How's my aussie lingo coming along? Actually feel terrible going to curl into a ball and pass out...

Don't think I'll make tonight despite doing a little practice and trying to not completely hate the car... I have a job interview tomorrow after doing very little for the last 6 months so I need to do some reading and get my head back into work mode!

I had been watching videos of the beta and it looked pretty fun. Always so many games I want to play, but don't have the time.

On a side note PUBG is now on mobile, with Fortnite coming to mobile soon too. Could be some fun.

Just watched the qually. For anyone needing a stream download Ace Stream player which is a modified VLC:

Then go here:

Grab one of the IDs and in Ace select open by ID and paste in the ID.

Last season all but one race worked in 1080p and when that happened someone posted an alternative ID in the chat box on the left.

I'm sure it'll be fun.  But yeah, track days take a toll on the car.  Lots of heat to get rid of, lots of brake pads & tyres to replace :D

My track toy is a Toyota 86.  It needed a bit of attention before tracking, too, even though it was only a year old at the start.

You go to eastern creek Bird? My mate Matt is there quite a lot. Have attached a pic of his track car it's quite noticeable. I think he bought it from someone he met at the track as before he was just in his road WRX.

I don't think I've disliked a car as much as this one. I did no practice because I hate driving it, but then that means I can't drive it at all for the race. Usually a car I don't really like I can still have fun with in a race but not this one.

I didn't enjoy last night much. Not sure why. Maybe no practice, maybe too tired due to annoying kids. Car just didn't feel right to me on the track and half way through race 2 I was thinking to myself I'd rather be doing something else which has never happened when racing before. I spun on my own with a few laps to go, so I did just go and do something else :)

Sorry for the no show. Selling my house in the UK and had a tonne of paperwork to get sorted  :o
