Good nights racing for me. R1 was a nose to tail battle between Wally, myself and Bacchulum which saw me as the hunter, hunted and busiest!
I ran softs and was consistent across the race but I note I was 30 seconds behind winner Mael at the end even though I was 5th.
R2 was time to try the super softs. I hadn't even noticed these in practice!! I silly spin on lap 3 saw me drop 4 spots, but it was a good chase back
to 8th, battling most of the second half with Bueller. Supersofts proved to be around a second a lap quicker for me and I set my quickest lap on L17.
Won't be here next week as going away, so see you at Watkins Glen.
p.s. Well done Mael . . . killed it!

Holden VF skins for Mael and myself.

Well I liked them! They have to be driven like a supercar . . . brake hard, turn, wait . . wait, then ease on the power. I reduced the rear camber aiming for more power down traction, stiffened the front dampers, took off a small bit of front roll bar. It helped for me but could still find some more turn in!

The cars are fun to drive, not so easy. The rear spool axle makes the cars prone to snap oversteer, but you can control them nicely with the throttle. Should be challenging fun.Call me keen, but I have almost finished my skin. Homage to the Skaife Golden Child of 2001/02 era....

it felt right out of the box - you know, compared against my long experience of not having driven a V8 supercarI felt the same . . .
Good mod . . let's do it!

Good nights racing. I had cash for the Merc and it was quick but I found it understeery, and couldn't resolve that so went with the BMW which I felt far more comfortable in.
I was able to put the BMW start advantage to good use in each race getting a 1-2 sec gap each time into the lead however races 1 and 2 saw AbleArcher catch and pass. I was focusing
on keeping it consistent (and on track) so didn't quite have the top speed to hold him off.
Race 3 however I decided to push harder and it payed off. We had a few side by side battles and both of us had a few slips and slides but in the end I was able to hang on this time
to bring home the win. With only 4 points between us in the final championship score, it probably proved the difference!!
Also a first team win (if memory serves me) for Team Maki Engineering with Mael and myself.....

Despite being reasonably quick for a Nissan in practice, I couldn't get it together in qually.
Race 1 wasn't much better with two spins and not much confidence. This saw me finish last I think.
Race 2 took the chance to make a suspension tweak and the car was much better. Was chased hard by AGK but was able to keep it together and get home 5 spots up.
Race 3 grabbed a bunch of spots on lap 1, but gradually a few of the faster cars hunted me down. This was once again a pressure race with someone close behind pretty
much all race. Thankfully I kept it clean and didn't lose to many spots.
Wasn't the fastest, by a fair bit, so plenty of cash for next weeks final round. Team Maki looking strong in the teams championship.

I had cash for the Merc, but the felt much better in the BMW. Just missed pole in qualy to AB but new the great launch of the BM
would sort that out!!
Each race was a case of getting the good jump and pulling a gap. From there I focused on keeping it, although it got a bit small at times.
Had solid pressure from AGK and also AB with whom we shared a number of corners side by side, but just managed to prevail.
Formation finish in R1 for Maki Engineering with team mate Mael, but his pc drop out in R2 dropped him back unfortunately.
Now to Croft in the Nissan!
