Thanks for the racing tonight I had another slow start but came good in the last race. Wally was having a look at the season stats and the consistency points do not seem to add up... Looks like a round is possibly missing. Yeah anal I know but at least u know I'm looking at em

Its always good to know someone's looking at them :) I'll check it out. Consistency is the most important stat, really.

Apologies to Dave for the hit in Race one.  He caught me out braking earlier than I expected and I couldn't stop before tagging the  back of him.
Pretty average night for me.  The car felt on edge the whole time.  The race one incident put me at the back for race two and I think due to others spinning etc I found myself in 2nd toward the end but a small slip saw me drop back to finish 3rd.  R3, a wild moment down the hill saw me miles behind everyone so I just putted around until the finish.  Need to work out the setup, and maybe practice a bit more>>>

A couple of shout outs in race 2:

Dion, was there contact on lap 1?
My replay doesn't show it, I didn't feel it on the night, but it looks bloody close in the replay (and the timing is eeerie).
Sorry if there was but I was hanging on for dear life at that point.

Glen, it looks as if you spun trying to aviod me.
I didn't think I broke early there but the rear was all over the place at that point, making that corner particularly tricky, so I may have.
(my intention was to brake late and block the inside (I do that on last laps ;) ))
Thank you for not hitting me. :-*

I fixed the consistency. Yes, a round was missing.

My races: It was hard work with all that ballast. I constantly had someone behind me, just biding their time for the pass that had to come. I tried to defend a little, but not too hard, just to make it a fair contest ;)
Race 3 was definitely hard work in the little bit of rain. I had to really watch the rear end.

Dave was that near the blue bird ?   on that slight left hander ?  No you didn't hit me , squeezed me a little onto the ripple strip as i got a bad run on the down hill section and that shot me off the track, Racing incident only

I sucking at these for some reason
 R1 leading and probably should have won but i threw it of at the chicane at the GP section
 R2 look above
 R3 should have went to bed
