    I am going to try. Not sure if I can make it in time, and I have OnCall duties this week, so am really unreliable.

  12. You should have moved this race up a few hours for the F1 race.

    It was worth it. You're right though, I was glued to F1 when Lewis started leading from the undercut. What a great race 3 world champions in the first 3 positions when I left.

    We had a good race. If you want to know anything about the pits at mid ohio, ask me, I was almost resident and had a good look around. The two fast boys did well coping with the rain and it was fun
  14. This was an intresting experience , the physics have been cleverly worked out .
    In heavy rain you have very poor visibility the track and the edges just blend together making it hard to distinguish track from grass , all my braking points had to be something high and off to the side of the track so i could see them , late and hard braking was definately out .
    Grip levels varied as the storm moved around the track or a dry line appeared and disappeard , you had to be very aware that braking and turn in points would keep changing or you would be off and visiting the scenery, my eyes were out on stalks the whole race through , you could not afford to relax.

    OK the big question would this make for good racing ?
    For me the answer is no , in heavy rain i had to concentrate that hard on seeing the track and keeping the car on it i didnt have the time or the mental capacity to watch what other racers were doing , for me it was an exercise in survival not a race , it was just sooo easy to go off ,

    if we had a full grid i would be very surprised if 50% made lap 2 .Once you lost the car you were a passenger , if you lost it in a pack of cars you would probably take them with you , i think a wet race with that level of rain/grip would just turn into a prosession of cars trying not to hit the guy in front .

    Well driven Peter and Craig we all did well not to wreck or knock each other off .

    I wondered why you were in the pits so much Peter!

    Totally agreed with Dave, it was a question of surviving on track than racing and my brain did become numb towards the end of the race. Once someone is in front as Dave was with me behind, I did try and push to keep/catch up with him, but was never going to end well in the rain :(

    Nice driving though Dave!
