Congratulations to Matthew on pole, and all 3 race wins to Kcender.

Penalties

Race 1
At the exit of turn 2, Jeremy veered towards the left suddenly into the side of ab156, sending him off the track. Because it was turn 2, you’re expected to stick to your side of the track more carefully. 25 kg penalty.

Race 2
Turn 2, Russ rubbed the side of Kcender, who had the inside line, unsettling Russ a little, who then continued to veer into Matthew at the corner exit. I’m calling that a sequence of racing incidents.
Turn 4, Killagorilla ran into the back of ab156. 25 kg penalty.

Race 3
Turn 6, Matthew veered right on exit, making Russ veer right on exit, into Jeremy. Racing incident.


Season Podium
1. Matthew.111, 346
2. Kcender87, 334
3. Jeremy, 325

After turning a few laps of the this curicut (paper clip) I forsee a bit of mayhem in turn 1 and 2 with the bumps at both apex's. From my typical view from the back of the grid it should be interesting! I personally almost put the Dick Simth advertising sign between T1 and T2in to orbit, after a little excursion into the in field.

For a deceptively simple layout, it's got some tricky corners.

The joys of moving house.
We just got a contract on our house subject to finance so I will be doing the same soon if they get the finance

Only due to the bumps, so skimping on construction costs was actually a good thing. :o

We move next Tuesday. Been a long 10 week settlement but now feels like I need more time! Been trying to pack a little every day and am not too far off! Looking forward to setting the rig up in my new gaming room  8)

Long settlement, ours if accepted is 30 days,  but I had a clause put in the contract allowing us to rent it back for 90 days at a good price as we have not found a house to buy yet with this crazy market and all you mainlanders coming and taking the good stuff :) I hope spring comes with some new listings

I wasn't feeling good about this track in the early practice. I spun a lot, and it just felt slippery. And sure enough, on the opening lap of race 1, I had a self inflicted spin out onto the grass on cold tyres. But then for most of the remainder of the race, I was having fun chasing Rob, after whimping out and going for TC on setting 1 to try to avoid any more spins. We both eventually caught up to Doobs and had a nice little three way train going for a while, until Rob ran a tiny bit wide at turn 2 allowing me to pass. I couldn't pass Doobs though, who refused to make a mistake, and I finished just 0.2 behind him. Somehow I managed to put in the most consistent lap times in race 1.

Race 2 I was actually in 2nd place for most of the race courtesy of avoiding some early incidents. Phil had me under immense pressure. I knew he had the pace, but he couldn't find a pass. The best spot for him was sticking it inside at turn 4, where he could outbrake me. Lap after lap, there was Phil, trying the pass. Unfortunately Phil ran me wide (at turn 3, I think it was), and Russ and Matthew were there ready to pounce. But that was some good pressure racing. Matthew and Russ had a bit of a coming together in the dying stages of the final lap, giving me some hope of regaining some places, but I finished 0.3 behind Matthew.

Race 3 was much of the same. Bloody turn 4, with bloody Phil up my arse :) The combination of Phil + turn 4 was proving to be a real headache, lap after lap. Unfortunately, Phil didn't pull up in time on one attempt, and knocked me off the track, losing me a few spots. But again, enjoyable pressure racing.
