Wrong car - this is in the 1974 Porsche RSR 3.0 - but as James May would say, doesn't this give you the fizz? You can hear in his voice how hard he has to work.

The corner I struggle with is the last one before the long final straight. I keep taking too much kerb on either entry or exit.

I struggle with every corner, never had so much of a hard time trying to learn a track,  I might even go as far to say as I hate the track

Aren't you glad you missed Thursday then :)

I like the track - always have. I think it's got a really good variety of corners and some nice fast flowing sections.

Yet on race day you'll likely win. Pretty sure the "I hate this track", "I hate this car" is just a ploy to give the rest of us a false sense of security  ;D

Hi all,
Sorry I don't think I can make it tonight. Telstra have screwed me with an outage they expect to have resolved within the next two days. Apparently it's a NBN outage..... I'm not on the fricken NBN. Grrrrrrrrr

TWO DAYS!!!!!!   It could be worse, but I'm a little pissed off because I've managed to do some practice. Pity I don't have that much data with my phone, the 4G looks as fast as some NBN plans.  lol, ping is 14ms though. There could be a miracle and it might get fixed, but I doubt it. Have a good race fellows.
