Too late (for me at least), Roberto already showed up. :(

ups.. sorry :(

A little, I guess already known, trick for Laguna: every kerb has a red part that marks the turn apex, I try to use them all the time as reference and it seems to work. I guess you will make 1:28, there is room to improve my time as you will see in the replay.
Have fun!

Sorry for the late notice, but my shoulder has been aching all day, so better give it a miss tonight.

Not real good races from me, except for a few moments of close racing near the start of the races. I just couldn't get the car feeling very balanced here.

Sorry about the clip in race 3, Glenn. I was avoiding Rob re-entering the track and my rear wheel clipped your front. I didn't see you.

Better night for me R1 & R3 wins
R3 Had a real good fight with Dave G, got him cheekily into  T1
R2 disaster at that little left hand kink going up the hill, just clipped that outer kerb and got shot sideways
Unfortuntly took Glen out  Sorry about that again

You were pretty slow off the line... are you shortening your 1st gear to cope with the ballast?

Yet another average round for me....
Qualy wasn't perfect but managed 3rd with low ballast.
R1 - talent left me and I spun myself off track.
R2 - collected a spinning Dion and flew over the fence
R3 - moment of excitment when I shot from rear of grid and was looking at 2nd/3rd coming out of the 1st corner when Wally accidently clipped me which put me backward in the dirt.
On a positive, thanks to Foyal whos posted setup I tried and found it pretty balanced which was good.

I don't know what I'm doing with the setup Wally  :)

Once you've got a bit of ballast, send your 1st gear 2 or 3 clicks to the right in the setup so you don't bog down off the line.
