That's a bummer, hope it gets fixed promptly.

Was looking forward to the Supercup after this week's poor performance, but it's the overall standings that count and not the previous result  :(
Wally, you mind changing that in order to make it more...err...interesting?

Server's up.  I've been having NBN dropout dramas, so I'll see how I go tonight.

Race 1 was a good race with Joe. He was chasing me when I had a big oversteer moment over the hill at turn 2 and relinquished 3rd, but then I caught up to Joe to put pressure on him until he bounced just a little off a kerb and I could pounce and take the spot back. Then it was a tense chase over the last lap.

Early in race 2 I felt was being a bit held up by AGK, so I pitted fairly early just to get some clean track. After my stop it was fairly lonely racing, which I had hoped for with the early stop. I chased Joe to the end but he kept a comfortable gap.

It was great fun...and I'm pretty happy with the result considering how badly prepared I was.
Some very close racing with Phil in race 1. I went off track and got him an easy pass early in the race and then I was pretty much following him sort of closely.
In race 2 I was racing by myself most of the time. Pitted very late and then had a bit of a battle for P4, but no chance to defend my position on cold tires.
Well, kept this thing on the tarmac a lot more than I thought it would be possible...great track for these cars  :)
