Well, it was good fun but I got a bit tired by the end.

I don't know who turned me around in the last race, but blaming me for it I feel is a bit rich; I was in the corner, I was ahead, I cannot see you; you need to take care. 
Anyway,  no big deal.

Hope you guys had good races, too, although there were a lot of accidents.

I think I turned you around at one point Bird, but I take full blame for that

Sorry for everyone I hit tonight, Never really got to like the BMW and was caught out a few times

Tough nights racing.  Qualified in P1 which was a rarity.
Race 1 I got tagged by Killa I think which half spun me into Joe but we got going only dropping a few spots.  From there Joe and i battled
our way back to the lead and whilst I could hang on to the back of him I couldn't get close enough to pass.
Race 2 and 3 were more of me chasing Joe who seemed to get a bit quicker each race but it was still close.
Happy with three seconds .  . . although I was secretly hoping for three firsts tonight. :)

Good night for me. First few laps of race 1 were intense trying to find a way past Wally and also trying to hold freezer off. Think freezer got by then I was able to thread my way past them both in the last turn. I then caught up with killa and bueller and got my them then held freezer off till the end.

Race 2 and  3 were very similar getting away well and holding freezer off but was good pressure and I had to concentrate hard not to make a mistake.

Were you running any rear wing freezer? It seemed you were a bit quicker in the corners but I pulled away a bit on the straights.

Just default wing (whatever that was).  I was trying to get on the gas early out of the turns though!

Default was 1 I was on 0. I was just making sure I placed it on the apex and focused on exits. Was definitely faster in the last race.

That was a tough round. I got banged into from behind mid-corner more often than I would have liked. Maybe I had slow mid-corner speed, but I was turned around quite a few times. The Nissan was feeling very understeery in the last few laps of each race. I managed to get side by side with a few of the Abarths from time to time, but it was ultimately futile as they could just power around the corner. I didn't think I put a pass on anyone all night, apart from the starts. One of the race starts looks very impressive, with a bunch of Nissans all weaving around the slower Abarths and streaming past.

The best and worst of sim racing.  I respectfully disagree with the judgements but won't dwell on it.

I obviously need to go and reconsider my starts, sorry to all I impacted in T1, R1.

Thanks to DaveO for some great racing in every race, side by side, position swapping and no contact.

Rob missed the apex and drove into the side of Killagorilla spinning him - $300 penalty.

Sorry Killa, I miss judged the corner and missed the apex, and couldn't hold a tight enough line. Apologies mate.

Just one question, Wally, do I get the penalty money as consolation prize for R3 or the institution pockets it?  :)

Interesting suggestion. But I don't want to introduce a financial incentive to cause incidents ;)
