    For once, it seems :p Though I haven't driven it for some time, but it shouldn't take too much time to re-brief myself (just did 2 laps on Nords on Presto's server and I was actually surprised that I still knew most of the track from the last events, so a short one should be possible as well ;))

    Yeah, after much banging my head against the wall, I suddenly remembered it. There are few corners I sometimes struggle alot with. T1 (chicane thingy) and T2. Sometimes T3 as well. But what the hell, I so in for this.

    I foresee extreme death in these things. I'm in.
     
  12. Anyone willing to share a setup? I have been away so far this week and have had no chance to practice. :ninja:

    @Nelson Ullinskey Sorry, haven't driven these things here yet.
    Check your Zolder folder, those were the last we drove.

    Also Estoril for the 200hp versions, IIRC - though I don't know how much of a good idea it is to convert these to the big one :D

    In other news, I'm afraid I'll have to withdraw from this, I'll be busy tomorrow afternoon and it's rather unlikely I'll make it until 19GMT - last-minute-into-quals might be possible (and dangerous :D) but yeah, unlikely - sorry about that!

    As I wrote in the Mini event, I'm afraid it also applies to this event. I am gonna have to pull out. A friend of mine just started his vacation, and he is going to pick me, and my computer up later today, and then we going to have lan party as his place.
    So I wont be able to race for a week or two.

    Great combo for some! I hope everyone enjoyed the event.

    Q: It came too soon, If I could have made changes to the car during the race I would have been very happy. There were things I didn't get done, even after posting a time.

    R: After everything cooled down on L2 I thought for a moment I might be able to hang on but by L3 I could see that was not going to happen. Concentrate, concentrate, avoid bad mistakes. Luckily in the end I didn't make any really bad ones or at least I didn't make any at the wrong time. So happy to finish :O_o:

  18. No comment here :p

    Needed more practice and my old enemies Mr. and Mrs. inconsistency decided to pay me a visit. I started last for fear of causing mayhem at the front :laugh:. After murdering my suspension, I finished fifth out of seven. Not my best result, but good track time for the Minis tomorrow :thumbsup:

    I liked this combination, the fact I seem to be good at it is a bonus.

    Spent pretty much the entire race with @Mark Hellsten. I thought I was clear after he made a couple of mistakes, but I spun into a wall on the penultimate lap. The damaged suspension from this crash and now heavily worn tyres made my car almost impossible to drive quickly. Staggered round the last lap trying to keep Mark behind, but to no avail.

    Still got a podium though, so I'm not exactly unhappy.
