Tough night . . . ran medium in first race but didn't get comfortable with them.  A small tap with Wally saw me around early and it was pretty sketchy after that.
Race 2 I swapped to hard and a small suspension change which felt better with a more consistent race.  Race 3 was looking good as I chased down a 4 sec gap
to Wally who was fighting with AGK but to no avail as I spun as soon as I caught them.
Do like the track just didn't put it together.

I hear ya , was tempted to do the same , but I was to stubborn and didn't want to let the track win. Track won 3 - 0.

Sorry dave it was my bad hitting you on one of those tight corners the car does turn enough I was just going to fast for it to turn.

Race 1 was a bit lonely after getting airborne.
Race 2 was a good chase of Phil and AGK.
Race 3 was a loooong chase of AGK, every lap less than a second behind him, until I finally got close enough for a tow and managed to just stick a pass on the last lap.

I had a good first race with AB taking the lead and making me work hard for the pass. The other two races I got a better start and was able to stay ahead.

I think I'm suited to formula cars for some reason. My first ever pole was in a formula car as was my first ever Tuesday win. Maybe it's my 37 year young reaction times compared to some of you  ;D ;D

I'm nearly 56 now, and I was probably in my early 40s when I started sim racing. I'm sure my reaction times have got worse. Hmmmm... maybe ballast according to age? Ballast = 120 - age*2.

About to crack 55 so I second that motion for Ballast!  :)

I hit 70 this year  ::) those last couple of posts basically sum up why I don't race much anymore  ;) ???
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

Well, expected to see myself at the bottom end of the grid, but somehow I figured out how to get around this track.
Once you get a bit of a feel for where to brake and what line to take this track is actually fun.
In race one I gave Wally an easy pass. I was distracted by I don't even know what, forgot where I was and slowed down at a spot where it wasn't necessary...haha...getting old too ;)
Otherwise quite a bit of good, close racing with Phil.
Lost a few positions in race 2 due to the incident with ab156, but luckily enough damage was probably just minor...guess the front wing may have suffered a bit.
So I went for a chase for Wally and got him at the end of the race, but no chances to pass.
Yeah, age ballast, good idea...would get my vote as well  ;)
Cheers

I think this track stinks ( I don't mean the visuals either I just don't like the layout), I was about 5 secs off mid pack in practice so didn't bother racing.
Sorry, but this is going to happen a lot because I'm finding the older I get, the less patience I have.
