The tumbleweeds are rolling through. Not too many lap times set by the fast boys!

I thought about maybe doing a lap or two tonight but I'm not sure I want to move the 2 feet from my sofa to my rig.

No idea what others do, but I usually do some laps offline on Wednesday after the race. That's when I still have a good feel for the car, which makes it easier making setup tweaks.
No more practice after that. Then on Tuesday I try to at least match last week's laptime. Done 20 laps at Donington...awesome track, but tyres are suffering a lot.

Yes, the left side wears a lot quicker than the right.

Put too much time in preparation for rooz acc, I've done a few laps offline and managed 37's, tried a few laps in the other cars and could only manage 38's. I'll try to get on early tonight maybe. Also spent some time fiddling with csp and what not because I've started to notice some infrequent mini freezes, I think it's sorted.

Pushed a bit too hard in qualifying also running out of fuel at the line on a hot one. Good battling in R1 don't think I would have made a pass without the guys mistakes. R2 I was a bit sketchy on the cold tyres, hope that didn't put anyone off. After Killa went off just tried to keep it consistent and not cook the tyres too much. Good night's racing, thanks guys.

fun close racing with wally. Most races I find myself in the same situation close behind an alfa and no real way to get past.

A shame to throw 2 places away at the end of the 2nd race but knew I wasn't going to make that apex so let off the brakes to avoid contact.

Wally I put my python log on discord it had a few plp errors

Qualified in 8th which is about normal for this season.  Managed to get two spots in the opening laps but then had AB on my tail from lap 5 . . . and he didn't leave until lap 16!  We had a great battle with numerous side by side clean moments, and in the end I hung on for 6th.
In race two I got away from 8th again but managed to find myself in 5th with Wally and Joe not far ahead so things looked promising.  However at the start of lap three entering turn 1 Wally and Joe floated away and I hit Wally spinning off.  It was then that I realised that my internet had decided to drop out. :(   I jumped out and then it restarted to I got back in . . obviously last.
I headed out and let the pack go by jumping on the rear.  From there I spent around 13 laps battling with DaveO.  I could catch him, make numerous attempts to pass, then slip back and repeat.  I don't think any paint was swapped in some very close and excellent racing.

Power died at about 19:20. :'(
Came back on 5 seconds later but I wasn't turning anything back on until after the storm.
