    Long time ago since I raced rF2. Not since the release.
    Tried the Spark tonight and got the thing rolling okay I think. It is slightly slower than the Eve for me, but this baby is a bit more stable.
    My initial qual lap was the best for me in the whole session.
    During race start it was busy in T1 and I think I got a small nudge, had to use the escape road and joined at the same spot. In the beginning it was difficult to hold on the leaders, especially on the straights I was losing ground.
    After some laps I could get closer and was finally in Bram's slipstream to gain some extra speed. From that moment Bram was driving faster too and I could only follow. We did stunning laptimes, I think I drove mid 27s or so. Far better than qualify :)
    In the last laps I was pushing too much and lost a bit of time. Settled for 3rd which I am pleased with considered how much I drive nowadays.... almost none.

    Thanks for racing everyone.

    Yet another fun event in the F3s!

    Started from the back as I have yet to learn how the startlights work in rF. Got past a few cars in the start and found myself in 5th behind Dave. The rest of the race was incredibly close between me and Dave. Unfortunately not any close racing, but very similar pace. I pushed all I could and managed to slowly but steadily reel him in and at the finish line I was right at his tail. It was hard work but so much fun.

    Thanks Marco for organizing and thanks to all that showed up.
  17. That was great fun , i couldnt keep pace with the top 3 and was on my own most of the race untill Knut reeled me in with 2 laps to go , then he was all over me , fortunately we run out of laps before he could pull the pass on me .
    That was quality racing , thanx for setting it up Marco .
  18. Mark T and I had a few laps of dicing, which were very entertaining. :) After that it was a bit lonely for me, though I managed to break into the 29s. That's right: 2 seconds off the 27s. Still very fun cars to drive. Nice turn out. How about a return to Mid-Ohio or Sears with the F3s? Thanks for all the work to get this going, Marco. I know it's been significantly more than we've heard about. But, then, this isn't an R-rated forum; so we aren't privvy to all the colorful descriptions. ;)

    This was good fun (again!)

    Joined fairly late as i was watching the champions league match and totally forgot about this event. Did some track recon first as this circuit was new for me.

    Race was awesome. Axel, me and Ramon with a second of each other until the end of the race. Stunning.

    Thanks Marco for these awesome events. Hardcode me on the future signup list please :thumbsup;
