    Qualification = 10 minutes = essentially superpole @3:3x/lap I'm thinking. No chance of a second timed lap.

    True, but it is a track for endurance racing. Our race won't be an endurance race but we'll have to endure it before we can win it.

    The darkness does seem to present a problem for some. On my screen it's just not that dark and easy to discern all the detail. I know my brightness isn't set that high is this just a due to some monitors?

    Well, I had a fantastic car in the garage, untill everyone picked the viper over the vette, lol. I would hurt my performance more by tapping the wall than there was a difference between cars! Crashed into the fence at the chicane, no lap, see!

    R1: Tapped the wall at the entrance to the Mulsanne, down 4 mph already[see]. Eric E passed right by me after a small off but on L3 I got back on his mistake. Quite a few times during the race I tried to straighten the bodywork on the front left corner by hitting the same bit of Armco I nailed on L1 but the car never got any better, who'd have thought that? On the last lap Marcelo lost too much time at Arnage and I slipped by.

    I really do like the chatter on TS, I think it makes me a better driver. But I have to hear my tires, I wan't mad, just had to raise my voice to be heard above the voices. Thanks for responding!

    R2: Bad start but I cleared the esses and the mess on the straight. After traffic at Mulsanne it seemed I lost some stability. Sorry for the multiple contacts there Marcelo, my read on what was happening didn't match with reality I guess. Once recovered I couldn't believe I was seeing people in front of me, life is good! Sam bounced off a wall and I watched the race in front of me, Marcelo was having a very good time on this track. After a while I did catch up with Eric E and on L6 Marcelo stuck at Arnage again.

    While the straight can be, tough, it's a fun track to race on. Thanks to all for the races!

    Like Dennis said, I crashed at Arnage on both races in the last lap! ¬¬

    I hate that corner.... lol.

    But I had a great time during the practice and race.. thanks for the tips!
