I cannot, my "baby" sister is turning 21, I want to be there to both be responsible for getting her drunk, and also be responsible for keeping her safe! Wink

I'll let you know this afternoon if I can run. I'd like to. I'm wondering if anyone else does though. I'll need to get some practice & pre-Q time to see if I can still drive this thing, around this track. I haven't tested for this at all though, so I might be 'a bit' off pace.

2'10.7 Q run ready, car's fun even though it's handling just okay but not great.

Got decently-balanced tire wear, but not quite enough speed. Then I bent it under the bridge with 4 to go. Fun little bomb to drive.

Indeed. Was able to keep the gap to Rooster for about the first half distance, and was starting to believe I might have something for him when the gap began to shrink. Of course I proceeded to drop a wheel under the crossover, gathered it up, then decided I better throw in a lazy spin the next corner just for good measure. Evil or Very Mad P2 soon became P3. Then to my surprise I was suddenly back in P2. With clacksman hiding in the shadows of the bridge, I didn't even realize I went by him til several corners later Razz Forgetful reeled me in towards the end and put the pressure on, under which I started to crack. Pushing hard he had a slight bobble and gave me the gap I needed to bring it home in P2. cheers Voting to make this a points series please.

I I love you this car and track combo. I made two big mistakes, one on lap one exiting Degner 1, and later in the race in Degner 2, both of which were mistakes made while applying pressure to other drivers and driving under their draft, two things you don't get to practice if you just drive alone.

Feels good to be on pace at least, now just gotta get back to minimizing the mistakes.
