Did a season in these at ROOZ, strategy choices were fun. We did a couple full gp distances and 2 and 3 stops were both options. A 1 stop would be too slow as running heavy loses heaps of time and a fuel an tyres stop was usually about 20 secomds lost but could be 2 secs per lap faster.
Thus after a season with the F2004 Marty can confirm my view that the 1975 cars are a better choice

Yep, really enjoyed this season. Always like close bumper to bumper racing.
Agree, was a good season.
Well done with the championship Seanus, it was a good effort taking into account you missed the first round. I will waiting for a delivery of beer as thanks for taking Bacchulum out in race 1
Alfa at KS Brands Hatch GP could be tempting Phil.
Brands Hatch Indy would be even better!!!!!

were fun races, tactics would really have been interesting if we had 10 more drivers. As it was I got lucky race 2 with Kcender and Phil keeping each other busy.

Did a few races with Raceonoz with the F2004 and have to say it was not my favorite. Could never get the front working as it should.
So my vote is for the old school, even if its a mod.

Agree with it for the first race, too cold for hards. But for the last race the 2nd last lap were a bit of an outlier compared to the neighboring laps. I decree it was talent over grip.My experience was that on mediums I set my best times in the 2nd last lap of both races . . . so no drop off!Bit surprised no-one joined me on the hard tires for the second race, it was the faster tire in my opinion. Unlike the first race the front tires got warm enough to be sticky, I could see how my laptimes were dropping lap by lap compared to the drivers in front of me. Sadly had to disconnect due to poor internet.Interesting to hear that the hard tyres came good in the latter stages of the race. I was tempted to try them, but chickened out when I saw my slower initial lap times.

Race one was fun, got stuck behind Dadio and Simone and had a good battle to pass them. Again the harder tire helped during the second half of the race but the cold temperatures of race one gave a lot of understeer, even more than usual for the "POS".

Great racing with you guys, thanks Phil for putting this track up on a week that I'm home and thanks to G0D for the track mod. Good close racing with a couple of minor bumps and grinds, these cars are fun drive.
Race one was one of the closes finishes I've had, Bueller got me by 0.002 seconds, good defending Unfortunately race two was not so close. Ran wide into the blind right hand corner onto the grass, got onto the gas too early while returning to the track and spun into the middle of the track with a angry pack approaching. It was like Moses parting the seas with cars going both side somehow avoiding crashing into me, except Joe did not follow the script Sorry mate but at least we had a good battle after it.
