Final race of the season!

The season podium currently stands at:1. Kcender87, 204
2. Phil.8, 200
3. Matthew, 176
There's nothing in it between Kcender and Phil. Both of them are fighting for their 2nd championship title.

The layout should be the boot with chicane. ;)
Fuel and tyres should be:

Fuel rate is 1.5x, tyre rate is 1.7x

Did you mean without chicane?

The very first race that used the chicane was the 1975 GP.
If we've been able to be accurate, we have so far, so that's why I said 'with'.

The Scheckter (esses) chicane was in use in '75, the bus stop wasn't built until '92!  :P
Let's just back up a year and pretend this race is in 1974.  ;D

You know what? I'm sorely tempted to because I hate chicanes as much as anyone.

Do it Wally, G0D's correct. :-[
The chicane in use, which I forgot about so assumed was the bust stop, was a pathetic, dicky thing in the left-hander of the esses.



The boot without chicane would be more representative. ;)
