Sorry for the delay in replying to everyone I've been really busy at work (as ever)
The standings from the last round should also be updated by Saturday as my lack of IT skills has struck again.
See you all Saturday

I'll be there.
I haven't raced here before so was on track tonight for a couple hours. The AI are pretty poor. By lap 20 6 of the 9 AI i was racing with crashed out completely. By lap 30 there was only 3 cars on circuit. Then a couple laps later i crashed out as well. Gonna be a tough one on Saturday i think.

Is this on the full circuit as they actually run the shorter National circuit in the real series. 

I'll have to run this one blind I think as I've just got back from holiday so had no practice time here.

Either way, this circuit is taxing. There is no where you can let your concentration lapse for a second.
I had another practice last night and once again crashed out around the 30 lap mark.....but I was the only car left at that point. The AI have a bad habit of stopping on track, and if you are behind one when they do you can end up running right into them.

Well, another practice race for me and another DNF. Added some aero and it didn't seem to hurt my pace. Felt a little better all around but still room for improvement.

To be fair it's not a track that really pushes the cars top speed it's all handling and the camber/elevation changes.

Shame as its a fun flowing track although quite tight too so passes will need some careful and smart driving.

BTW im sure Rob (Octoberdusk)  will be racing so thats one more to add.

I've only done one practice session so not totally sure but looks like just one stop required however,  im also sure there will be plenty of spins at this track that can easily lead to suspension damage so more may be needed for that.

You started the lobby so quickly I couldn't load my tune , so it was better to quit because the car was not driving good enough to be safe in the race.
PCars should have done this and done that.... but it did NOT!

Really enjoyed that again tonight and delighted with third after limited practice. Qualifying definitely was a surprise,  I certainly didn't expect to get into the 1:14's. 

First part of the race was a bit dodgy,  lost the backend several times at the first or second uphill right hander and dropped to 6th but gradually found some rythm and confidence and made my way back up the field. Enjoyed some fun dicing with Leemarrr,  Hurt and Rob at times and the track itself was a great challenge throughout,  never quite in toal control and always a chance of a mistake. 

Enjoyed the chat after and would love a series extension of any sort,  its been great fun.
