This formula of mixing cars(totally different from each other) and forcing  the ute race to determine the grid position for the main race is brilliant!!
I can see finally you got rid off those horrible ballasts system and at the same time you are mixing the races giving the chance to everybody to have fun!!
And yes.......no more 3 starts!!  noice!!

Wally........Christmas is fast approaching and a donation too!!!       AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Thanks Simone. Yes, I'm looking forward to the races. The fun run had lots of bumper to bumper and side by side racing. In both series it's easy to make small mistakes which let's others catch up.

Lessons learnt:
I wont be starting up the front in Supercars!
Don't lock the tyres in supercars, its downhill from there.
Suspension breaks easily against the fence!

Don't use 56% brake bias.
Avoid following anyone closely as hard braking causes immediate U-turn

After a few very drunken laps I have decided the sedan isn't even a little bit of fun to drive around here
Help,

Not having done any laps in these cars before last week's fun runs I've done a number of laps at Watkins Glen the day after, on Wednesday. FFB is very strong in the utes so I reduced it 4 or 5 times in steps...and it's still too high. So I developed early stages of a tennis arm...awesome. I had to do some practice for Monza in the GT3, then yesterday's 90min race...yeah, havent done a single lap at Road America. I've got the pain under control it seems, but racing 3 cars a week and doing practice as well is too much atm.
GT3's are priority as they are just the most fun to drive. So my thinking is doing a few laps in the ute there at Road America and then do only the 20min race tonight...see how we go with that. It takes time to work out setup and braking points in the v8's and I don't like working that out during qualy...leads to crappy results and possibly accidents as well.

Server's up for combined utes & supercar practice, with the usual server password. Skins will just be random during practice. Then I'll restart the server for Q1 & R1 in the utes with correct skins etc.

Wow! That went a lot better than expected. Forgot to turn on crew chief so the start was difficult with I think Wally next to me, but it was great close racing. Thanks for not shooting me off, Wally...keeping these guys under control with cold tyres is not easy  :).
Qualy could have been better...bad luck with traffic. Well, lucky Joe made a little mistake then...passing him would otherwise most likely not have worked.
A very rare win...whoohoo!!!  :)
