    Im glad im with sky, no cap what so ever. As soon as there is like, im off. But, seeing as part of a Sky package is catch up tv, which means dl episodes, I can't see them doing any kind of cap.
  6. In SA, uncapped is wayyyy too expensive. And it's ridiculous when renting anyway to get lines de-activated/moved. The company who has the monopoly on all ADSL lines are a mess. I guess that's what we get for becoming a democracy.

  13. That was awesome :)

    Race 1: Got a great start off the line,but ran wide at the first corner, went back to last. First 5 or so laps were a blur to be honest, but I know I went from 5th to 2nd multiple times :) A few bumps between us, but this track makes that unavoidable, and normal race incidents.

    So as the dust settled, me and Valerio were I think like 10 seconds behind Paul, who drove magnificently up to that point to stay out of the incidents. So on about lap 6 me and Valerio had some clear air and started catching up slowly, took about 5 laps to catch up.

    Then I got a good tow out of the 5th to last corner, and Paul held the racing line, so it was all up to my braking at the chicane. Luckily I nailed it, and Valerio was stuck behind him for a lap or so.

    Once he got past, he caught me like a man on FIRE. Defending was the order of the day as with Mexico. His tyre management was clearly better than mine, and he kept on my tail, not letting go.

    He got very close to me at the last corner every lap til the end, as I kept drifting wide on my worn tyres.

    Last corner of last lap. I go very wide, deciding to floor it thereafter and hope for the best, as Valerio was virtually past me. I win! 0.272s, and this is becoming a habit between me and Valerio :) But a good habit!

    Race 2: I get a good start yet again, but at the 5th corner I run wide, and return to the track, accidentally bumping Paul. I waive him past - as I felt it was unfair to him, and Walter also seizes the opportunity, so I am 3rd now, with Valerio again on my gearbox. They have a scuffle, and I pass Walter, who was unlucky yet again.

    I am on Paul's gearbox, with Valerio following close by. I get close via the chicane, and at the hairpin I pass, to lead. I build a bit of a lead, with Valerio soon passing for 2nd. I look in the Mirror and I see smoke, and Val apologising - an incident perhaps?

    I see my lead build, and except for an off or 2, my race is very uneventful til the end, and I win by 12 laps - although I run out of fuel over the finish line - wow that was close!

    Thanks again to Paul, Walter, Valerio and Christian for another awesome night of racing :)

    only 4 guys but great fun
    Race 1 big battles with Walter that fly around track in T7 Mc Lean's, Paul is front me and Dewald with a big advantage of sec.but this evening me and Dewald decided for hard fights:) so push hard until catch Paul overtake him and we continue the battle until race end .Race finished with Dewald front me think 1sec. max
    Race2 only 0.046sec.:mad: :Dbetween me and Dewald poleman.At start and in first laps lost many time running wide and lost brake point so Dewald take 9 or 10 sec of advantage and Im in last position push for recover the gap now front me Walter that close all the doors but in output of Melbourne hairpin lost car and easy pass for me now Paul is front me but in T7 running a bit wide on curbs so I can gain just 10km/h of speed for overtake him but guys Dewald is too ahead about 16sec push for catch him but in penultimate lap I lost car in T9 The Esses lost again precious time; recover 18sec is too in only one lap.
    Congrats Dewald for Victory:thumbsup:

    Thanks James nad RD for Event
