The night started good with a solid 8th place qualifying. But a innocuous little touch with my team mate followed by a vicious attack by Joe on my poor Honda meant the first race was a disaster, finished many laps behind the aliens. (Absolutely nothing do do with the terrible driving on my part )
The next two race were much better, just tried to stay out of trouble. Ended up getting the most consistent lap times for the two races which makes me wonder what everyone else was doing!

It's been interesting watching the fastest lap times on the practice server. First Joe, then Guybrush, then Phil.
Seems to have a good correlation between laptimes and laps done as well, well until you get to my time

Yes, it's going to be a difficult round. I like to have one challenging track in the season, where you'll have to be more cautious than normal. It's all part of mixing things up and it's a chance to reward drivers for other skills rather than speed. Someone's going to win each of the three races!
Definitely a track to do some practice laps on. Bravery can bring good lap times but usually ends in tears
I'll list all know problems with the mod here, I'll strike out the text when fixed.
The BMW is missing its turbo
Well done AB, some serious pace!
Had an interesting night. Kept on losing the car on the entry into the right hander after the pit straight. Only to realize on the final few laps that I was triggering the pit lane speed limit by going to wide on entry
Also well done to some of the newer drivers, some hard but clean battles.

Apologies for whoever I took out in race 3. Was a bit disorientated after connecting the pit wall entry barrier and did not realize I was still on the race track and not within the pit lane. Too many 360's

Race 1 bad shit happened.
Caught the same disease

haven't had a lot of time with the track but a 2.09 in the Fez should be manageable. Quicker if I have more time to practice.

The car was good fun, if not a little slow which made passing hard.
I did not find it that slow

Last - 6th - 2nd = comeback!
Seems I spend the night finishing behind you Freezer! First race really Last (4 laps Down, did I get points for this Wally?) ->7th ->3rd = comeback +1
Found I had very little motivation after a long day at work and non-existence pace found myself quitting the race after the second start. But thinking of Wally & Seanus work organizing the race I decided to give it a second go. So switched off all apps except Heliocorsa to try and improve the stutters and rejoined 4 laps down.
So spend race 1 keeping Russ's evil handling car company.
Race 2 a bit better, nice battle with Doobs for a whole just keeping outa trouble. Found some rhythm and with it a bit of pace.
Race 3 even better, tried to stay out of trouble the firs few laps, battled to get by Russ and then somehow ended up in 3rd. Blacked KCender for a couple of corners, apologies without apps I did not know that the pass was not for position. But it did give me a bit of exercise on blocking which was put to good use against Phil

Advice from Seanus, do not lower the rear of this car too much, it will interfere with correct working of the rear suspension, Kunos limitation.
How about locked setups?

Touch the any of the walls and you are ......
In my opinion the sticky walls makes this track unsuitable for a Tuesday race.

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.
Blame the car/ setup Doobs
However this race show why old tracks like these are not used anymore. It does not generally produce good close racing and leaves half the drivers in hospital/morgue. Was fun driving it though!
