It's a tricky one. Guess I'd do better in a race with the Mustang because the higher top-speed would make it harder for others to pass me, but it is just not really fun to drive...hmm

the mustang is pretty hard around here I think, there is defiantly a bit more time to be had but it's difficult to be consistent and get every braking mark exact on 1 lap to get that time
Driving by on my way to somewhere else

Sorry Mael...lost it and was a bit of a passenger when getting in your way.
Thanks Russ for turning me around in race 3...you could/should have redressed...you know that, don't you?
Otherwise some good close action.

Had a good night overall. I wasn't fast but was more consistent so a bit of progress is nice. Sorry to DaveO for race one. My cooler cut out and took the LCD with it for a few seconds.

Had some close battles and was clean racing so pretty happy. Anyone know where I can buy some lapspeed???

Hi killa,
Just watched the replay and I'll put my hand up for that.
My only excuse is that I was in a really hot battle with Joe and wasn't expecting your lunge up the inside (which was fine), but I guess I wasn't expecting you to be as slow out of the turn ....
As for redressing, I normally do it, but maybe I was a bit jaded after race 1 where I was pushed out twice with no redressing.
All I can say now is ... sorry mate.
Some days you're the pigeon,
Some days you're the statue ...

Good racing tonight. In the first race, I couldn't pass Joe. I could slipstream down hangar straight and pass, but then Joe had the inside line for the next corner and could re-pass. And then Phil reeled me in, and I finished 3rd.

Races 2 and 3 were clones of each other - I got a good start, got past Joe and built up a gap, then Phil slowly gained on me as his tyres came good and passed me on Hangar straight.
