Here my Ferrari setup.

May be a little loose.  Try lowering rear ride height by 10 or so.

Great season, Wally and good last race.  This track is very nice.

It was a bit frustrating for me; last week I kept gaining positions, this week I kept losing them - I just could not keep it consistent. 
Still, a good night's racing.

Good round for me after a couple of rounds getting caught up in others misfortunes. Some great racing with Freezer and Bird and some good pressure in race 3 from AB.

Congrats GB and thanks for another season Wally the effort is much appreciated.

Unexpected good result for me. It really does seem the less practice the better for me in these cars.  A cas of not overthinking it.

Three good races mainly watching for Freezer and Joe in all 3. Was fairly happy with 2 passes on the outside in race 1 to set up the night. Had a few fun laps with Joe in R3 before the slippery last turn caught me out.

Finally sorted my start issues so got to spend a few minutes in the lofty heights of being able to see the leaders in the last race before deciding not to try and destroy my race by trying to do the impossible ‘32s!

Thanks for another well run season - here’s hoping numbers stay high for S29.

Thanks for the thanks  :)

That was my best round. I finally got a nice stable setup that wasn't too oversteery. I stiffened my load cell brake which gave me more confidence and control in braking. I also focussed on corner exits (slow in, fast out), and looked further down the track when cornering rather than focussing on the apex. All in all, I felt I drove much better.

Race 2 was oddly lonely, even though I was mid field. Race 3 was excellent, sandwiched between Bird and Freezer. I was really expecting Bird to pass at some stage. Race 1 was also good - I actually passed Mael and Bacchulum without them making a mistake.

It was good to see some stiff competition up front between Guybrush, Kcender and Phil.
