Penalties
Race 1
Joe ran wide exiting T2 and squeezed Killagorilla into the wall. There wasn't a great deal in it, but because it was a T2 breach of the “moving across to the other side” of the track rule, this is a 50 kg penalty.

Wally braked too late into the wide final turn and hit AbleArcher – 50 kg penalty.

Following that there was side-to-side contact between AbleArcher and Bacchulum – racing incident.

Race 2
Phil ran into the back of Joe while braking into a corner, spinning him – 50 kg penalty.

Is anyone else finding this track looking very dark?
I'm seeing the dark walls looking almost solid black and hard to distinguish detail, especially defining the last turn
from the pit entry.

Yes, I found this one dark. I had to turn up the exposure here.

The last corner has the tyre wall on the inside and outside, that just blurs into one. It will take some time to get good muscle memory for that one.
The first lap I turned I entered the pits as I could not see the corner. :P

You'lll be in trouble once I can drive without looking on the track-map Phil. After 12 laps I still do not know where the start/finish line is!

What a crazy track that is. Good fun though. Could be some race carnage with all those walls! Can't see many passing places apart from the final turn.

Sorry to Freezer for the nudges...and to Brad for this silly thing. I was just too aggressive after Joe's glorious move...you're a hero...it was better to quit. I'm done...have fun.

Thanks. I try my best.

In seriousness though I knew you were there, but I wasn't sure what Wally was planning on doing with letting us past. I was on the inside with full lock on but the car just wouldn't turn in and it drifted out and into you. If you read my race 2 review below you'll probably feel better. EDIT: Did you even watch the replay? I didn't touch you, you hit the wall on your own and bounced off me.

Started 1st but got a slight tag from Phil on the 1st lap and ended up back in last with pretty bad body damage which was slowing me down. Fought my way back to 4th then spent a while behind Freezer. With his ballast and my damage we seemed evenly matched. We came into the pits at the same time with me behind, and somehow I came out just ahead. Pulled out a small gap after a few laps; Phil and AGK way too far ahead at that point. On the second half of the last lap I blew the engine and didn't finish. Nil points.

Results are up. Congratulations to Joe and AGK for the race wins

The way I saw it, you did run wide and squeeze killa into the wall. See the results section.

After last weeks starting failures i was extra careful off the line and managed to keep it clean for both races.
Qualified in my usual 8th spot for the utes and thanks to a few spinners found myself in 5th, only to let Wally by in the dying laps.
In Race 2 I  had a good battle with Ablearcher in the early laps before getting by which along with some more spinners found myself alone
for quite a few laps just trying to keep it clean.  Joe caught me mid race and the tyres were starting to go a bit so pitted on lap 18 and Joe followed me in.
Unfortunately I was a bit slow out of the box which gave Joe the overlap out of the pits.  From there I again focused on keeping it clean sitting in 4th for many laps.
I could keep Joe in sight but not do much about him and then suddenly on the last lap he is out and a slid through for a podium.
Pretty surprised to be 3rd on the supercars leaderboard given my slow pace in the utes which then sets the supercars grid . . . must be a few people sliding off!!
