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.

You mean everyone is in the same car, don't you? How wet is it gonna be? Now I'm getting really concerned...what apps are you guys running? ;-)
Well, at least I've got someone to blame if I don't win this series...haha

I was going to say something about the late incusion, but then I thought if come race day and the heavens open and you haven't turn a wet lap up till now. "Tough"! get on with it. :)
That's pretty much how racing works, 'practice' and 'setup' are luxuries, not mandatory.
Good to see someone else gets it. ;)

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

I've heard you're the wet race master from back in the day Bacchulum so what sort of time are you doing here wet?  ::)

Am I not allowed to have my own opinion on this without being degraded as someone who doesn't get it?  ;)
Good luck for the race mate!

I didn't even know you commented killa, until now that is, so I don't know how I specifically degraded you. ???
Loosen up.

I first saw the wet track last night and WOW, it was extreamly hard, but bloody awesome, can’t wait to have a crack under race conditions. The challenge for me is going to be the dry race as I’ve never done a lap I this car on tonight track in the dry, so it’s certainly going to be interesting. By the way, how long is the race?

Well that's my drop round which is a shame after 3rd in the first race.

R1 started really well. No way I was going to try my qually pace as I wouldn't have lasted, so just tried to keep kcender is sight in case he fell off. About two thirds in I spun trying to get past a back marker which then had Bacchulum right behind me. Hit the wall in that final chicane and he was by. Started putting in some faster laps to try and close the gap but that resulted in me spinning off all my own but I had enough gap over brad to keep 3rd.

R2 not sure what happened at the start there. Three wide in turn 1. To me it seemed whoever was to the left of me came across and hit me, but hard to tell (will check the replay). After that I rejoined the track and got back up to speed but Simone pulled back into the track in front me of and I t-boned him wrecking the car. I went back to the pits and had a 50 second penalty and was just going to try and unlap myself but after being close up behind a few people I didn't want to ruin their race being a lap down so decided to call it a night.

EDIT: Had a quick look at the replay. I'll wait for the race stewards decision but I'd put that on Bacchulum  ::)

As for my races - the wet race was more fun than I thought it would be - sort of as intense as I remember wet races were in netKar. But on the opening lap I got a tap from behind from someone which sent me sailing across the wet grass, and by the time I was facing the right direction again, I was 2nd last and way back.

Race 2 was a really good chase of AbleArcher for the latter stages of the race. I could quite catch him, and he didn't make a mistake, so we were close together for a good number of laps.

I tried the team Maki setup tonight. I hadn't practiced in it, and it felt a bit understeery in the high speed corners, which nealry caught me out a few times early on when Freezer was chasing. But once I "learned" the setup, I actually managed a PB and came 7th which is my equal best result for the season (although that might be with a few front runners not having such a good result).

Race One:  The wet race sucked big time (that's an understatement).  Did not enjoy this one bit, the way the random puddles would grab the car and flick it one direction or the other saw me off track, steering damage, last and having no fun.  Threw away a pile of points in what has to date been my best season.
Race Two:  Now we are talking!  Started last and with a combination of people spinning and some good passes I managed to get home 3rd.  Chased team mate Mael for the final few laps but didn't have enough to make any moves.  Team Maki 2nd and 3rd on the podium.
