Can't wait to get back into racing after dealing with a customers crypto virus the last 2 weeks. Might have to drive the car before round 1 which will be a nice change.

I'm hoping it was zandvoort that made passing hard and not the cars. You seem to be able to have good close racing but making a pass was near impossible. If you fell back a bit too seemed very hard to catch up.

I think that was very much Zandvoort, where it's always hard to pass. Mind you, I did swap positions with Phil and Mael a bit in the last race. Slovakiaring should be easier to pass, especially at the sweeping corners either end of the layout.

I suspect qualifying is going to be important in this series, and Milli-seconds will be important at Slovakiaring. Any time lost while battling will never be made up  :)

There's a long straight, will drafting come into it?

As long as Mr "I don't need traction control" is there at least there will be someone to pass as he spins off

LOL Joe.

I reckon people will have different exit speeds from that very long last sweeping corner onto the straight, and there will be moves at turn 1, perhaps with the aid of a tow.

Sorry for the bump wally. Misjudged your exit speed.

I was feeling good until near the end of race 2. Not sure what changed but I was getting slower then race 3 was a shit show spinning off twice.
