What an eventful night! Started off with an extremely poor qualifying performance which saw me starting from 8th which wasn't ideal.

Got a semi decent launch with the car which by turn 1 saw me up to 5th. Fighting with bacculem again for the first few laps was fun, I clearly had a lot more down force which prevented me having any sort of run down the back straight but I was able to get a really good run out of the slower corners and on the last turn I was able to bolt out of the corner and get him into T1. From then on I passed kcender who was having a few problems and set my focus on Matthew and grat who were having a great time fighting. Eventually due to lapped traffic and setting some decent times I was able to tag onto the back. Grat made a mistake and let me through as he was lapped and not to later I was able to tag onto the back of Matthews car. Not for to long as he pitted, I considered pitting but my car had hit it's sweet spot and thought traffic would affect Matthew. I went on until lap 26 and pitted but on my in lap I was slowed by traffic and lost 8tenths. Bolted on some fresh rubber and some fuel I was glued to the timing monitor as I could sense Matthew would be in or around me as I came out. Low and behold he flew past me as I left pit lane and had a healthy 1.5sec advantage. On fresher tyres I soon caught up but couldn't get him. For 2 laps we were pretty much nose to tail but on the final lap I got an extremely good run coming onto the straight and got a toe. We went side by side through the next few corners which was sketchy as I was on the outside. I ran out of room and grip and Matthew held on. Great race all round really enjoying the strategy element. If anyone has a reply could they send it my way or post the last lap up.

Struggle street racing will have a crack, I will let Matt know tomorrow and we will decide cars later in the week. See you all on track!

Wasn't the night I was hoping for. Got caught up in the first lap incident, there was an lmp1 car rolling across the track and tried to avoid it to no avail. Engine was gone so had to quit and sit in the pits with the rest of them that got caught up. I came out the pits and decided to plot along pace was pretty good I ended up catching Shayne and Killagorilla had fun trying to unlaped myself against them which I did end up doing but made a small mistake letting Matthew pass and they once again got past. With 20min to go I decided just to sit behind them and let them battle it out for the win.

In regards to the passing of lmp1 cars on gt3s I found myself giving them to much room and got a few cuts from that. In saying that I just watched out for blue flags and made clear early calls on where I was going to position the car and thus never had a drama. Of course there will be spots on some tracks where it's single file but that's the nature of the game.

Lambo for me please

GT3 for me I will let you know what car in the coming days

Hi all won't be able to make this race unfortunately so my spot can be given to someone else. Good luck to everyone, should be a good round.

Good racing bud!

Very clean

Matthew and myself are in

count me in :) will have to try all the cars before I post my 3 choices

What a night it was!

Qual 1. Did a decent lap on my 4th lap to go to the top of the list but i was 8thenths up on 2nd and thought I might have gone to hard and was going to get a huge weight penalty for the 2nd race so I decided not to go back out even though the track was improving. Stan ended up getting pole by 3tenths and I stared on the front row so my plan kinda worked out.

Race 1. Got a really good start and was side by side going into t1 with stan, i braked early and gave heaps of room but it was to no avail as I was tagged (all good stan after reading the posts you too were just a victim!) Even with the contact on the first corner and after stan readdressed I found myself in 2nd, trying to chase will was almost near impossible with damage both in the front and the back. Stan quickly caught me and passed easily down the straight. I was settling in for a solid 3rd until I saw will run wide on the last corner and allowed me through with 2 laps ago i pushed hard and to my surprise I was catching stan at a rapid rate! I was right on his rear wing coming into the last corner of the last lap but knew due to my wait I was never going to out drag him and settled for 2nd.

Qual 2. Extra 30kgs wasnt Ideal but I pushed on and got 8th, on my last flyer I was 3tenths up but made a small mistake and there goes a possible top 4...

Race 2. Got another decent start and was extremely careful going into turn1 like everyone around me did which was good to see! With the extra weight I couldnt be as consistant as I would have liked and soon simone was on me I made a slight mistake out of the final turn and he flew past me. The Next chaser was wally and he was catching quick but like simone he past me down the straight with ease! I thought I would try an undercut since wally was holding me up through the slower turns and would bolt down the straight. Plan almost worked two laps later wally came out of the pits as i was in full flights coming down the front straight but it wasnt to be he held his line and I settled in behind after that I tried to pressure him but with the turbulent air plus a heavy car it was hard to keep with him. I decided to save my tyres and wait until I had a lighter car. With two laps to go I pushed hard and caught back up but still couldnt get past him came home in 5th which wasnt to bad!

Its a close championship but with almost 150kg its going to be interesting to see how I can match it with stan and bach! See you next week!

Interesting weekend

Qual1: set a new pb which got me 2nd last pretty chuffed with that as I was thinking last for sure with 174kg on the car.
RCE1: Got a really good start and made a few positions but then everyone settled in and I was a sitting duck i couldnt cover my lines or attack just had to sit tight not helping was the grainning I was getting on the rear which was a tad odd. Kept it on the road and finished 15th which isnt bad considering where I started and the extra weight.

Qual2: omg 90kg less and the car felt like a rocket compared to the previous race trying to tweak the car and find new brake markers was a challenge settled for 13th with a semi decent lap.
RCE2: got a ripper start and made a few key early moves to be well inside the top 10 chasing matthew and frezzer who were having a good scrap I decided to join in. Unfortunately got a tap from freezer which spun me around and lost valuable time to the leaders, kept my head down and chased again finding myself behind wally and freezer which ended up being a pretty good battle I passed both and headed into the pits for some fresh rubber but some how came out behind the pair of them again! Eventually after some bold passing I got them both and started to chase grat. Pushing hard the whole way on the last lap I spun and lost positions to wally and marty to finish 8th I think.

Wasn't really expecting much from this week considering the weight I had but still had some good battled in the 2nd race which was fun.

congrats joe on the little one!

This will be interesting... I just hope I don't get lapped

Got a pretty good jump from the 2nd row and was side by side with matthew going into T1 being the first corner I backed off a little and was going to settle in behind him before I knew it I was facing the wrong way. Was right at the back and had some good battles along the way, Car had a little damage but was still able to drive it with some pace ended up making my way to 7th which wasnt a bad result in the end..

Got another good launch and came into T1 third, forgot who was 2nd but the spun right in front and i managed to dodge them. The chase for p1 was on skaife had a pretty nice lead by the first lap, the ballast killed my straight line speed so it felt like i was making no in roads into the gap. We caught back markers a few laps before we pitted but he still held onto the lead when he went into the pits. I took a gamble and stayed out another lap, It almost paid off as he just snuck past me with the extra speed down the straight as I was exiting pit lane. I pushed hard trying to force a mistake and on lap 17 it happened going through the first "S" he got a little to eager on the gas and was able to pass him, being slightly slower he hounded me the rest of the lap and I locked the front left going down the hill into 2nd to last corner. We were side by side through the last corner and he got me on exit, but with the tow I soon caught him and went around the outside into T1 made the move stick he had a big moment ontop of the hill and gave me a massive gap which i managed all the way to the flag in P1.

Great racing all see you next week!

I probably should submit my application to become an AC developer... I thought my glitch finding days were over but oh how I was wrong! I will try and keep them to a minimum but no promises. I am now going to publicly apologise in advance to anyone who runs into my name... It wasnt my fault it was given to me many moons ago and it has stuck... now that it has made its way to the sim racing world it has a mind of its own... For this I am truly sorry.
