I won't have a room up on Tuesday cuz it's the wifes B-day. clacks might though so look for it sometime after 7 pm eastern.

Ran around 10 laps this afternoon and was able to break into 2:34's. I'd say 2+ seconds still able to be gotten...maybe more if yer an alien. Couple turns I know I can do better on.

well, good to be back Very Happy

after replacing some high mileage Alfas in my garage I went right to Grand Valley for some practice.
I banked a 2'32.893 q-time but wouldn't be surprised to see aliens and alike with 2'31s later the week.
Turn 1 will be interesting with increased speed through draft affraid

Some of us out tonight. Banked a Q run while Agent was eating, 2'31.186. That was with 1/0 brakes, 0/0 felt better but I never ran a low 31 in short races afterwards.

best time for me in short race or free run was mid-32's. following clacksman around showed me where i was slow, but I couldnt seem to do anything about it. lol

best part of night was when group hit some sand right in front of me. he slowed down like hitting quicksand. my fast maneuver to avoid him sent me spinning. complete loss of car control. so unexpected that it had me lol'ing in a smokey haze. thanks for waiting-up on that lap clacksman. clap

In the mirror I saw the side of your car approaching very rapidly, I braked to let you slide by in front of me but that didn't happen. Replay looked hilarious.

thanks Thumbs Up!

I lose time evenly over all 3 sectors. I had a hard time getting back into the 2.32s but now I can do it half way consistently. So far I have a 2.32.4; I won't give up but right now I don't see me getting into the 2.31s.

Very impressive time, clacksman clap

I finally got into the 2'31s (once) and banked a 2'31.985 cheers

I'm losing 0.5s in the last sector and that sector has only 2 turns! jocolor

Reminder to myself: slow in, fast out, stupid Mad

awesome, many thanks Thumbs Up!

the very surpising result is that it is not the corner exit speed that sets us apart, but the breaking-point into those 2 turns.
I break before the 50m mark in both turns and you break after them. How you still manage to keep it nice and tight is beyond me but I will certainly try this out when I get back to it.

did a quick check on the championship and if my math isn't wrong the situation is this:

if clacksman wins, he wins the championship.
if clacksman finishes 2nd, Rack has to finish 4th to tie with him
if clacksman finishes 3rd, Rack has to finish 6th to take the championship.

So good luck gentlemen wave
