I drive my real car so infrequent it does just feel weird. The steering wheel is way to big for a start!  ;D

A real pity I missed most of this season, sounds like it was pretty good fun. Have tried a couple of times to do a few laps but doesn't work too well - foot is still too sore - seems I have archilles tendinitis.  Hope I'm able to do more races next season. Trialling right foot braking but having trouble in close racing due to missing braking points or locking up too easily under pressure.

Yes sorry to see you exit early last night, hope that heel heals quickly for next season.

Best of luck Gratulin and don't ignore it like I did. Took me almost 1.5 years to overcome chronic Achilles tendinitis, can now jog about 3km without discomfort after 2 years. Getting it healed in the acute phase is a lot better.

Thanks Phil it was a great season as evidenced by the popularity of all the races.
I, like Imperious, only felt comfortable with the car for the last few races. Congratulations to all the podium people , to win a race against this bunch of racers is no mean feat  !! I have really had some of the best racing this season, regardless of where I may have finished an individual race, with always someone to catch or be caught by. I think people also really enjoy the challenge of mastering this car, something to keep in mind for the next season.
Hope you recover soon Gratulin.

Did anyone else notice the disappearing ambulance? ???
At Pilgrims Drop, on the left behind the bridge there was an ambulance next to the marshals.
In the mirror, though, there was no ambulance, just marshals! :o
Once I noticed I couldn't ignore it, I checked every mirror in the car, every lap.
(almost missed Hawthorns a few times doing it :-[ )
This track's not up to standard :P :P

Thanks Phil for the season. 8)
All the different 'ballast' solutions made it unpredictable and more fun. ;D ;D

Lol your doing it wrong then, try keep your eye on the black stuff. I heard you will normally end up where you are looking so looking for an Ambulance you will most likely end up in one.  ;D
