Hilariously, I'm so discombobulated I put this in last week's.Yeah, I noticed that. Your brain must really be overworked at the moment
Wally, I suffer at the best of times. Too much shit going on. I really want to do next week, so here's hoping I remember to do some practice and what day it is come Tuesday.

I haven't had any time to practice and I while I couldn't believe that I could be any worse than normal, I was.
I didn't qualify well, and unfortunately Wally caught me during a hot lap and I couldn't let him by because it was going to be my best lap. It wasn't, I screwed up the last corner and killed both of our laps.
Lap 1, I nearly cleaned up three people because I missed my brake marker and luckily made it through a gap and ran wide instead. That was a relief.
Sometime later I almost did the same thing to Rob or Dave O, but once again managed to get off the brakes at the right time, swerve and run wide rather than hit them.
About half way through the race, lack of sleep hit me and I started nodding off with my eyes open. A couple of times I lifted my foot off the accelerator by about ten percent. That was a tough 8 laps. I came to about 3 laps out from the finish and made it to the end.

Race 1: I was having fun till I spun coming off a slow corner, then did it again for a few laps and had a stinker.
Race2: I was having fun till I spun coming off a slow corner, then did it again for a few laps....and on the way collected poor Rob after losing it, and had a stinker. I'm very sorry Rob. Then I quit after a few more spins. Hopefully I be able to get some more practice before the next round, and can keep it on the track.

First time back after a pretty long break. I didn't do more than 15 laps practice and rocked up pretty late but I really enjoyed driving these cars, which is a surprise for me because I've generally hated V8 mods (in everything). I had a few spins due to hitting kerbs in the wrong way, and being a little too heavy with my right foot, and once on the left braking, but at no point did I feel like putting it in the sand trap in frustration, and doing donuts till the car broke.
The last race was hilarious. I got off the line like a rocket, headed into turn one in the lead and was so overjoyed that I forgot how to drive, found myself in the wrong gear, went wide into turn two and panic braked into three trying to recover, spun and ended up being where I belong. It was a bit annoying because even though I was a second off a decent pace I reckon it might have been a fun little sprint.
Thanks for a fun night blokes.

That's a paddlin'. I reckon the red car moved over and caused the incident. It may have been because the rears spun up on a bump, but still moved over and mad contact with the other car.

This track is really good to drive, but not good to hit fences apparently. It's certainly more interesting than a bunch of other tracks that don't have issues.
I didn't enjoy anything about last night, and think I've lost interest in racing. I generally can't be arsed practising and feel like I'm wasting my time when I do.
I like these cars and the only thing I'd prefer is wings on a low tech open wheeler so it's not the cars.

Blame the car/ setup Doobs
Ha, actually I probably should. I'd been practising in the Honda but forgot to change to it in car dealer so had to drive the Cooper, which felt like fighting my lane assist in the Subaru.
Still, it was a lack of talent that was the issue.

I seem to be incapable of driving, and smashed into the same building about five times. Sorry to anyone that couldn't avoid my incompetence.
I reckon I did about three hours practice and only completed about 5 timed laps. Woeful.
