    Golden Rule
    • Be 100% sure it's not his fault and just carry on like nothing happened and take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
    • Play on the safe side and wait for the affected drivers, knowing 100% sure you will not get a ban.

    Another cracking night in the Cats on Thursday night
    Great combo with this version of the track,
    super racing and the lap times are getting closer,
    Once again its all about how you drive these cars,
    And as i have heard a few times now ...

    Its not how late you get on the brakes but how early you can get on the gas with these cars

    and its so true in theses cars. I was a second a drift but after 2 laps watching Stuart i knew where i could make up ground. it really pays to look at other drivers lapping especially when in the same car.. look at the lines the gears and the corner speed, and these cars asked to be thrashed in a straight line, just be gentle in the corners at lower speeds, there you have to as smooth as possible.. (harder said than done).

    Cant wait for this next instalment, as i do look forward to them.
