sorry for bailing out , but after flipping the car damage was to severe to try and continue , tried pitting to see if that would help but it didnt

Cheers

Race day lads.

Hope to see and hear a full grid of V8s tonight! :-) 

 

To the new guys you can join any series part way through. Just turn up in a car on race day and you will be supported!

Could I please have a definition of the word "supported", I would hate being accused of supporting a new driver in the wrong way.

Yes fitzy. I'm sure a few guys here could give some very interesting support :-)

Support could also include allowing someone to lean on you.

since i feel a little fragile today, and if Fitzy is offering his support, I'd be very grateful if I could lean on him in turn1 of sunset. Say at about 150 mph ;)

I watched Fitzy just nick one of the barriers. Game over. Then 2 laps after I did precisely the same thing in the same place. 30% damage front and back and had to watch KC disappear. Like i would have caught him ;)

Sunset is a very tricky track and I'm not surprised at the retirements. It has so many traps that will get you if you even blink. Its a personal favourite.

I enjoyed it though. 2nd.

These cars are very fragile. Too fast and too fragile to not use a mic when needed.

Hello,

wow, I love those cars. Hard to drive - especially without tcs -, but fast. Driving with my Holden improves my skills enormously. The track? Great, challenging and I think since yesterday one of my favourites. I stayed away from trouble, tried to avoid any damage, made 2 pitstops and survived. I was the slowest driver in the field, but I managed to get the 4th place. Hooray!!!!!

@Grim: Sorry for the tap, which turned you around at an early stage in this race. It wasn't intentionally. I was a little moment disorientated, because of the other car, which lagged in that corner. Sorry.

Glad, that you all could hear my voice the first time. :-) Since I had to concentrate so much, I didn't talk much.

Well done JD for the 4th place.

It was a good race overall. 34 laps seemed to go pretty quick.

After about 10 laps or so i start to settle in and enjoy the car and put some good laps times in.

JD. It happens. No worries. It was fun to push church 1/2 a lap, literally! I waited until I got my lap back though. :-]

Watched the replay until lap 10 last night.

Have to say that it was pretty fantastic racing until lap 10. Was looking forward to a protracted battle with Fitzy.

JD - your defensive driving is getting better.

Hate Hockenheim!

Damn work. Am working tomorrow evening now. Bahhhh!

I've loved these V8`s.

Won't be racing anymore series for a little bit as work is going to be mental over the next month.

:(

Hello,

@Poisdly: yeah, most of us, I think, have to work for money. We will be back, if you are on the tracks again. Keep your head up and don't get stressed too much.
