There had been a track update. I've updated the track on the server to match the RD download.

Ok, all good now...it's working. Thanks. Done some laps in the BMW and thought that thing is really fun to drive, but challenging. Then the Volvo...yeah, a lot easier to drive and faster as well. The Toyota Supra is very fast too...gotta try the Jaguar (best looking) next...hmm, if the Volvo wasn't so ugly...

So we're doing 15/31 laps, not 20min/40min races, right?!

Yep. The races will be roughly 20 & 40 mins, but they will always be a set number of laps.

Whilst the Jag wasn’t very quick it was very enjoyable. Apart from having two left mirrors the car was a lot of fun to drive/slide around the track. Sure there were quicker cars which I could drive but the Jag was a lot of fun, I had thought about using the VK but I could get the tyres to last......

In the short race I ran out of tyres around lap 13 so I decided on a mixed strategy for the longer race. I tried running long on the hards then switching to the mediums for the last ten laps but it didn’t make much of a difference. Whilst the results show I finished 9th, the reality was I only managed to pass people when they ran out of fuel on the last lap, so I guess it’s rather hallow...

Hmm, Wally has shown that you can move this Volvo around this track quite a bit faster, but I'm still pretty happy with how the races went. My starts weren't too bad. There was plenty of close racing...well, and I managed to keep the car on the track. Early in race 2 my crew chief told me I can do 17 laps. The problem was that I was under the assumption that I had fuel for 2 or 3 more laps on board for the first stint. So I started short shifting...more and more during the race...crossed the line with 0.5 litres left...phew...more luck than brains. Luckily enough I didn't lose too many positions. Wally made a daring pass, but resisting wouldn't have made too much sense...the 3 of us made it through this tight turn alright. Another Nissan passed me, but that was it...Phil came close towards the very end of the race.
There was a bit of a situation and a possible contact with a Nissan before the left hand turn at the inside. He was trying to pass on the outside, but then went off. I was aware of that and thought I left enough space there, but maybe I misjudged this situation. Sorry if it really was my fault (haven't watched the replay). Cheers
