  11. 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.
  13. Back from Texas and looking to RACE! wondering if I can even finish this event.......

    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!
  20. 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!
