Congratulations to Matthew on taking out pole position, the race win and fastest race lap.

Penalties - 15 second post race time penalty next race
I’m going to have to ping Freezer for the start straight collision with Brad, as he moved sideways across the track to get around a slower car in front, but ended up colliding with Brad who was driving in a straight line beside him, in breach of the “stay on your side of the track in the opening 2 corners” rule – penalty.

At turn 1, Russ drifted wide across the track on corner exit and bumped Phil off the track, causing him to lose positions – penalty.

Bacchulum collided with the rear of killagorilla, sending him off track – penalty.

Jeremy had a big warp into Joe.

To boost the Short Tails a bit, I've swapped the 50% restrictor for 30kg ballast on the practice server. This gives them a little bit of a leg up in terms of lap times for better parity, and the ballast slows them down in corners but doesn't make the top speed suffer as much as the restrictor (thanks Seanus for the suggestion).
In only a few laps each on default setup and a full tank, I did a 1:20.1 in the long tail, and a 1:20.8 in the short tail.

As a consequence, I'll also make the fuel multiplier 1.35x.

I've only just reset the practice server to 1.35 x fuel, so if you've done fuel calcs based on laps prior to now, please re-check.(you'll be able to do 1.11x more laps on a tank compared to before).

will be interesting if the mazdas stand a chance now. russ was so much faster through the corners last week and the only way I could keep ahead was accelerating out of them

Yeah, the Mazdas look a bit slow on the practice times. But then they also have a much quicker pit stop.

I just did a few laps and was doing comparable times to the short tails. This track is a shit load of fun in this car though pushing hard I only manage a few laps before I write the car off  ;D :o

Whatever was in the initial setup you gave me. I think I messed with the diff a little bit before R1, but other than that nothing else changed.

In the laps I did I found pace in a few places. T1 you can take a lot faster than I originally thought. I brake just before the cones and not for too long then swing in what feels early to hit the apex. Getting a good exit on the tight right onto the back straight can easily make 0.5 sec. Also on my fastest laps I was completely flat through the last two corners which can be risky!

Thanks Joe. I think the best I can hope for is that the faster guys crash and burn, and slow but steady wins the race.

There are a lot of places to make mistakes here, and if you do you tend to find a wall!
