So which Monza is the race on?
Tuesday night it was set to Testing Monza which didn’t have the first chicane and that was terrific. If we ar using a different layout then I may need to change my car selection

Getting a bit late I know, but can I have a BMW m1 please?

I finally sorted the track issue, I had another folder called Monza, so just renamed that Monza2 then this one won't have any problems.

I think Bacchulum now has this Championship sewn up  :). It may have been helped by the fact that he had the knack to pick the a good car for each circuit, his knowledge of Monza and why he chose a Ferrari for this circuit was very interesting  8). I still had a fun night, but I am finding getting these cars to Turn In a bit annoying ( some peoples main complaint about AC physics). I do feel the Porsche should have been more competitive on some of these tracks :'( maybe at Oesterreichring it may show some promise). Anyway, on to find the best car for Sebring  :).

Boy that was a tough night of racing...I had thought the long straights of Monza would have been best suited to the BWM M1, however its legs were simply too short to keep pace with Bacchulum and his Ferrari, I think he's done enough to take the championship now, so well done! It was really interesting how difficult I found it was to stop the M1. It's lack of a 5th gear required caution during down shifting it was easy to lose concentration and cause compression lock ups, resulting in spinning off into the weeds. For the bulk of the lap I felt comfortable however the Ascari curves proved to be my achilles. I struggled all night to stop and rotate the car here without riding the curbs or dipping a front right into the spoon drain like curbing and exit all crossed up and out of control. Stopping any later than the 200m board meant it was John Derre season.

That said, the racing around here was awesome! In all three races I had some fantastic duels with a lot of different drivers and that 30 minute race was mentally tiring. After the first two sprints I was getting comfortable running around in the high 41's, low 42's, yet in the feature race, 43's were extremely difficult to achieve. The additional fuel really made the task a lot harder. I spent a lot of the race chasing Phil and I felt it was easy to get close, but in the same car it was extremely difficult to get enough to be in a position to pass. We had a couple of battles towards the end of the race however I made (yet another) a mistake in Ascari and decided to give up the fight as I was concerned about running out of fuel. As it turned out the race ended up at the right time for me as I doubt I would have finished another lap with what fuel I had.

Choosing cars for the next two rounds is going to be interesting as I really don't want to touch any of the Beetles as they seem woefully slow compared to the other makes. Perhaps some BOP intervention might save them, but thankfully we're not racing at LeMans so that won't happen  ;D
