    Geez, I'm having no luck with these lately.
    Sorry guys, I have a real life Mini run Sunday, and have to leave early.

    You should have fun tho, this is a top track / car combi.

  15. arargh can't believe I just hit a tyre wall because I was looking at the time gap instead of the road :( :(

    Was running in 2nd with Sam slowly drawing out the gap, and a relatively large gap behind, but my only mistake proved fatal. only on the 10th lap as well

    Cadwell does have some good TV cameras though
     
  16. Damn little cortina doesnt have much lee-way on the little engine hey?

    Managed to turn it into a BBQ on about lap 22/23.... Ah well

    Not sure where my pace went, I ran a 1:39 in quali on race fuel, then come race time I couldnt dip under mid 1:40's... Cost me a chance to have a good old fashioned multinational stoush with Avi and possibly Kevin.

    Ah well, next week, AND BEYOND!

    Thanks Stu, you're pulling out some good tracks of late. Thumbs up all round!

    Yeah - that can happen - Quali is generally about 0.5 - 1 sec quicker than prac & race. I think Simbin gave quali a little tweak - slightly better grip , perfect temps etc.

    Race tonight was a bit lonely after 6 or 7 laps, but at Cadwell, it doesn't really matter too much :D

    Quallied p3, finished P2.

    Probably would have only got P3 in the race if Croucher hadn't gone exploring inside a wall - he & Sam were a cut above tonight. :good:

    It don't happens often,that I don't fines a race bud this time it happen in lap 12-13 I think hit the tire wall on the top of the hill,engine dead no restart so walking back to pit to watch the race from there, nice fights and flip offs, Glen on two wheels trough the slow chicane :laugh2:
    And what to say about Sam he was a league on his own ,great racing Sam, it is a joy to watch you driving that car,:skywalker:

    My race was short ,bud it was the first time I had the Cortina in my grip,go almost full throttle on the hill and down and up again in 4t gear,for me it was flying (well you have seen me doing that!)my problem, the last few corners before the strait gives me leg so you don't feel what the car is doing (strange) so i think I lost there a lot of time? Big surprise to see the time Sam did (6 sec diff.!) 1.36.xx to 1.42.xx ,I think I go ask Sam for a private training :wink2:

    Even the race was short,I never had a bad feeling , only short Fun

    See you next time guys, thanks

  20. Had a great race last night early on with Matt, who was only a few hundredths behind in Quali, I was having to rag the wee thing to bits just to eek out a couple of tenths until Matt binned it, settled into a decent rhythm ater that happened, changed all 4 tyres at stop this time because the track eats fronts and just kept rattling off metronomic laps to win by a fair margin in the end.

    TBH, it is a track I like a lot but it can knock the hell out of me personally because there is nowhere I can rest and drop my shoulders to get my breathing steadied, but it did seem a bit easier last night, car I like and decent company you can trust not to throw an unrealistic move at you helped a whole lot I recon, thanks for the race guys.
