    Just so everyone is aware, the three circuits this week are all just progressions of the same layout getting slightly longer each time, each layout omitting the tighter chicanes to keep the slipstreamy flow a little better.

    Tonight is the 2.6km layout, Thur is 3.8km Island, Sun is 4.43km International, and those slipstreaming opportunities get better and better and better....

    Yes im looking forward to this one, hopefully i can get on the server before practice to have a little drive,
    all 3 tracks are on the server at present, but i may drop the other 2 before race time so i don't have a mix up again. i can adjust it later on again.. :)

    Unfortunately I have a garage appointment for my truck which I had hoped that my wife could do for me but she had other business to attend too at the same time so I'm leaving now for the garage...:(

    Tell you what, for relatively modest numbers, that was a belter of a night :thumbsup:

    I had some properly great racing last night - real nose-to-tail stuff with pretty much everyone at some point.

    Welcome to @Bidule hope you enjoyed it :thumbsup:

    Apart from my wheel coming loose from the base on my t500 in the first race so had to slow to correct this,
    but had some great fun battles whilst i was at full speed..
    Race 2 the same..had super fun racing with a pack, im glad i slowed and joined the pack for some fun again. i was no quicker just got a gap, so slowing and having fun was a much better idea.. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    the lap times were all real close and with a good slipsteam you got a nice boost of speed...

    the position i finish is irrelevant when i have this much fun driving wheel to wheel :)

    Cats are always good

    The automobilista racing club does cats on a Monday night too. I’ve been racing there occasionally. Good fun.
