Congratulations to Kcender87 on taking out pole and the two race wins, in a clean sweep.

Penalties
Race 2The opening corner incident was as a result of Bacchulum, Joe and Bradc being 3 cars wide. No one was really at fault, but the slightest side touch set up a pinballing collision which sent several cars off track.
Simone gets a 15 kg penalty however for an unsafe track re-entry, driving back onto the track from a stationary position into the path of Joe.

Season Standings
1. Kcender87, 235
2. Joe, 217
3. Freezer, 181

Seein' as we did this track in these cars pre-season, I thought this might have been the perfect opportunity to use the wet version. :-X
A sudden storm, perhaps? ???

Hmmm yes we could have one race on each. I've never tried the wet version - but I know Bacchulum likes it.

OK, I've made race 1 a "wet" race, and switched the practice server over.

I'm not sure about such a late decision to add a wet race. Some people won't get time to practice with it. I just did about 30 mins on the practice server and didn't do more than 2 laps without spinning off.

From the author:

"Fake Wet layout is included for wet track placebo, don't be surprised that it is so slippery, 1"50 is a fast laptime at Goodwood when it is wet. Use alternative lines to get more grip, optimum lines has less grip."

See how you can adjust to the conditions. We did try low grip "wet" races in an earlier season. The second race will be a dry race.

Would have been better to leave these funny things for the fun races instead of telling us a day before about this. No probs for the guys having thousands of hours on these sims, but for less experienced guys like me jumping on the server an hour before qualy it's maybe a bit frustrating. I guess you have to change your car set up as well.

I appreciate some people's frustration at the late change, sorry about that. But what appeals to me too is the test of people's adaptability. I see that as part of racing, adapting to what can be dramatically changed conditions. Accept it as a challenge. Remember, everyone's in the same boat.

Don't forget, race 2 will be dry.

PS, re the setup, typically I would soften it all up a bit. You don't want a tight, snappy car, but a soft, compliant one.

Will the practice session before the race tonight be on the wet track?
