Yeah, I'm not sure what cars that may suit. I tried the Mustang, but was no quicker than the Ginetta.

Yeah I had a feeling the Mustang would be to car to beat here. I found before laptime wise it was similar or slower than the Ginetta, but if you get behind it on a track with long straights there is no passing it. I also tried the Mustang last night and it felt blurgh.

R1 - Managed to get down the inside of Matthews mustang into turn 1 which was pretty critical and AGK ran wide a bit later.  From there I chased Joe and Wally
but I lost focus a bit around laps 7-10 dropping back a bit . . . not that I was likely to catch them anyway.
R2 - This time Joe got stuck behind the mustang at the start so I was away chasing Wally. We pitted together at lap 12.  Wally started to inch away from there, but then
I had a battle with AGK who had apparently pitted early.  We traded spots a few times before he finally held it.  Unfortunately a few to many small cuts got me a
10sec penalty which dropped me down the final results.  All up a good night and a good track for the Ginetta.

haha fair enough too :) i thought it may have been a little too close. I must admit i did look right to see if i could make it back on and well - i did.... but may have called it a little too fine :)

Everyone wants to get back on track as quickly as possible, but you would have been better off either waiting a moment longer, or sticking more to the left edge of the track.
