I had a quick look. It didnt have any damage repair settings so wonder how that would work. On Tuesday i was able to click the aero button as I approached my box.It does, at the bottom, doesn't it?

@Wally: plenty of very interesting stuff towards the end of the log!!!The pit config stuff sounds nice. Goodbye PitConfig! Nice race over fix too. The rest of it, we'll see how it works in practice. The pit window stuff looks confusing because it depends on where your pit box is.

You nailed it! No, it's a tech expo and visiting friends and family.Is it the flower show?No, it's after the GP.I will be away in Melbourne next Tuesday, and there will be a bye in the season races. Would someone like to organise a fun run while I'm away?

I qualified 10th, mid-pack, but just when the red lights went out in the race, my PC froze up or did a 1 FPS slideshow for a couple of seconds. I had no idea where my car was or what it was doing, and how there wasn't a pileup is beyond me. Someone said on TS that everyone just went through me, but when my PC woke up, I was without damage, just behind the pack. Miraculous.
From there I set out on the chase, and got back to P14 by the end of the 4th lap, being able to pass a few people on cold tyres. There I caught up with Bacchulum. We had a great nose to tail race for 3 laps, but I felt he was holding me up so I thought bugger it, I'll come in for an early stop on lap 6 to get clear track, without really knowing if the tyres would last the distance. They sort of did - by about lap 23, my rear left was pretty worn, and by the end of the race the rest of the tyres were wearing as well. Although the lap times slowed, the handling didn't get diabolical.
I got clear track after my stop, which meant the middle section of the race was fairly lonely, but I knew I'd be back in the action as the stops happened and positions normalised. After Freezer came out from his stop on lap 19, I chased him for the final 13 laps, with there often being a gap of less than 1 second between us. In the final laps, Freezer was visibly starting to make a few mistakes on worn tyres, as well as one concentration lapse that saw him clip the dirt, but my tyres were even more worn and I wasn't able to make anything stick.
Enjoyable race. No accidents, no mistakes, some strategic choices and good, close racing.
