Estimated lap time (before anyone asks *cough*vk*cough*) 1'03, test lap for lap count was a bit slower due to less than full break-in.

won't be able to attend tonight but managed a 1'03.7 last night. This is slightly more challenging than the March series last Month. affraid But lots of fun.

Still lots of room for improvement but key will be consistency over the whole race.

Just for clarification, we don't pre-qualify anymore we just register for the race, right?

Who did the 1'03.6 that was in your room when I arrived, then? I know I did one at 1'03.6 after a few laps, 1'03.0 would be tough.

Just register is correct.

Decent practice in a tough car. 1'03.562 new PB. A couple quicker laps than that, but in races with 'wind assist'. 2/0 brakes best for me. Might be the first tuning-prohib race with pitstops for tires.

No idea why my time went in like that. I tried to enter without it first and it wouldn't let me (figured I'd try lol), but I put 9:99.999 in the box and it shows what you see. Hope that'll be okay, Wall

Cause 99s minus 60s (one minute) = 39 seconds, and the minute carries over.

Complaining about 60 seconds per minute? Evil or Very Mad

What about miles, yards, inches, gallons and alike. For someone who grew up with the metric system this is living hell. affraid

It's rounding 39 of your 99 minutes up to another hour. HWKs is the weird one.
