3. Freezer, 229



Oct 30: Spa 1966 (Enduro) [DOWNLOAD]

Like Feldberg, this is a single single, 50 minute (plus 1 lap) race. There are no pit restrictions.

Damage will be 50%.

This is the final round of the season, with the race worth double points (1 = 56, 2 = 48,40,36,32,30,28...). Kcender is just 18 pts in front of Joe in the standings. So if Joe wins and Kcender finishes 4th or worse, it will be very close. Bonus points for pole and fastest race laps could become important.

It's one of those deceptive tracks where you can carry a lot of speed through corners, until you carry too much speed and crash. It seems harder to find the limit on very fast corners.

Sure is. Going to need to back it off a little to last the race I think. My fastest laps are going all out where a slight mistake means very broken car.

There will likely also be some good slipstream opportunities on this one... :)

That's quite an original excuse for a racing driver, never heard one of the F1 drivers use it  ;D

Can't you put a potty on your lap and leave him sitting there?

This is Simone and me looking for some track in the sky.

Great nights racing.  I started in 3rd, three wide on the front row and about 100m after we jumped I brushed the yellow pit lane line which was like hitting the handbrake!!
Didn't know what had happened at first, but having lost about 5 spots I was on it.  Had a good battle with BradC where we swapped spots for a number of laps.  The drafting was good for passing
but if you didn't create a gap then you get re passed!  I eventually got away and set about chasing Keith.  He was now 15 seconds ahead and unfortunately he wasn't slowing down or making mistakes so that gap pretty much stayed until the end.
Well done to Joe, and bad luck to Kcender who was freaky fast this season!
Loved the porsche and I pretty sure 3rd overall was my best season yet!  Not to mention Maki Engineering for Mael and I coming first in the teams . . :) :) :)

Not to play down Kcender's appearance at the pointy end of the standings, but extra well done to Joe and Freezer for such a strong result.
Another pretty shitty race for me. The 1st lap and a half were entertaining, dicing around with Bacchulum, Simone and Russ, changing a few positions already. I had managed to pass the ballasted Simone on one of the long sections, but then he moved a little off line and clipped the rear corner of my car at probably over 250 kph, sending us both airborne down the hillside. It did look kind of funny in the replay, seeing the two of us suddenly disappear, airborme, off the side of the track. My steering wheel ended up at 90 degrees, which was the worst broken but driveable suspension damage I'd ever seen. It meant a lengthy stop to repair the car, but then I saw virtually no one for the rest of the race. I was hoping to be lapped so at least I'd see another car  ::)
I enjoyed the car, but didn't have good pace and had lots of rubbish races, so overall not a great season for me, racing wise.
