Thanks guys. This particular track has 36 pits, so plenty of room for everyone.

I'm out too Wally, my clutch pedal has been progressively losing calibration on a regular basis and is now completely unreliable.

I've tried short calibration but it is way more serious than that. I have the pedals out of my cockpit and will pull them apart and see what's up.

Good racing to all tonight.

Good luck getting it fixed. Really, when you buy a pedal set, it should come with a set of replacement pots.

Lol, wouldn't help much Wally, they are Fanatec CSP's, which don't have pots but work by magnet sensors. I think the term is "Hall effect". For once I wish they had pots, much easier to fix.

Sounds like time for a pedal upgrade Rob!  8)

Thought I share this poem created Krunch from RACEONOZ after a Monday race at the Ring.   :)

Quote
The Green Hell
by Krunch

Come to Nords and bring a friend
With countless thrills round every bend
There's people with games and stories to tell
You'll even find a carousel

But truth be told it's no kids park
Like childhood nightmares in the dark
There's evil over every crest
The scary never takes a rest

The guardrails have a siren's song
Don't listen or it won't be long
Before you meet with your disaster
This is a place you'll never master

As we all lined up on the grid
About to start our foolish bid
I'm sure I heard an evil cack
A taunt from deep within the track

Cazily we went ahead
Howling off the start we sped
Down the hill to meet our doom
May I have some racing room?

Racing on for over an hour
Trying to stop things turning sour
We battled with walls and curbs and brakes
And melted tyres and pains and aches

So did you resist the Siren's call
Attracting you to every wall?
Or did you fly into the air
Off curbs made out of pure despair?

Did you bump and grind around
All fourteen miles of hallowed ground
Nine times to make it to the line
Sweating blood three quarters blind?

Well if you did congratulations
You deserve the adulations
You did well to come this far
You get to keep the mental scar

And you can say that you survived
A place where others weren't revived
Cos Nordschleife casts an evil spell
At the place they call... The Green Hell
[/i]

Thats very good
That boy needs therapy, Psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy, Purely psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy
Lie down on the couch, what does that mean?

Ha, I wish Joe, but that is pretty much out of the question right now. Still hopeful that I can get it sorted by Thursday.
