Lap 1 Penalties
This round kept the race stewards busy!

Race 1
Turn 1 – Joe drifted a little wide and tagged the front right corner of Bird, sending him slightly to the left. Bird was slowly turning the corner, when ab156 re-entered the track from running a bit wide on the left to the side of Bird, and Bird just tagged the right rear corner of ab156, turning him around and causing a chain reaction. It was a fairly slow sequence of events and I can’t really put definitive blame on anyone, so I’m calling that a racing incident.

Race 2
The front row had 2 Abarths on it, and the second row had two Nissans on it. The Nissans both took off faster than the Abarths, and both decided to pass on the middle, colliding with each other. Killagorilla was a little further back then Bueller, and should have seen him occupying the gap first and backed off - $300 penalty.

RussG drove into the back of Killagorilla in T1 and spun him - $300 penalty.

Rob missed the apex and drove into the side of Killagorilla spinning him - $300 penalty.

Race 3
Ab156 ran into the rear left of Bird mid-corner and spun him - $300 penalty.

Phil hit the rear right of Bird in the final turn, spinning him - $300 penalty.

Season Standings
1. Joe, 143
2. Wally, 140
3. Phil.8, 137



The next round is at Modena (fast layout), a tighter, twistier track.Track: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/autodromo-di-modena.5346 (note there has been a version 3.2 released; a lot of us probably still have version 3.1).

19 lap races.


The weather will be 11, 15 and 16 degrees.

ok I'll start the conjecture on how any passing would occur on this go-cart track. Dive-bomb into T1?  :P

We raced here before in the Japanese cars, and if I remember correctly, the final turn was a happy hunting ground.

That's going to be the car to beat around here. The Nissan is 1.5 secs behind the Abarth here.

Don't forget to rent a car before tomorrow night. There are still a lot of Nissans in the entrant list, and I can't believe that nearly everyone wants to drive one :)

After trying my other two options (Mustang & BMW) I’ve got to stick with what I know even though I’m many seconds slower than a Fiat....

The Beemer's doing OK(ish) here, in Mael's hands. But yes, I tried the BMW too and it feels very different to the Nissan. Much more sensitive steering, I find.

Last night he said he'd just stick with the Mustang as it would make no difference to his end result  ;D

I'll laugh if there's one Mustang up the front with a whole line of cars queued up behind it, unable to pass.
