It's time to come to grips with the F1800 in a trial race.

Track: Newbury 2006 (one of the netKar tracks)
3 x 10 laps, with ballast.
Reverse top 4.

Here are the Rank Times.

Thanks for the nites racing again gents. Great fun with you lot as always. Looking forward to the season, really enjoy the open wheelers with no aero.

Not that I'm overly concerned but your Race 3 graph is messed up Wally. I think its from a different race.

I was getting some good times here. The way my car was set up, I'd sort of get some turn in while braking, braking pretty early, then coast mid-corner, accelerating smoothly out, steering a bit with the throttle if needed. I also noticed I was faster through that sweeping left/right sequence at the back of the track, where I'd brake a little before the left hander, and start left, straightening out the direction change as much as possible. I noticed a few people going too wide into the left hander.
