    I always enjoy this track. :) Found the Martin and Jag a little difficult to master but never the less, fun to drive. I accidentally loaded the wrong setup for the Martin when experimenting during warm up ... :( Had a good battle with a couple racers for a bit ( @Bengt Lundgren race 1 and @Victor Jimenez race 2 ) but I was alone for most of the time in both events. Thanks to @Rupe Wilson for the event and cheers to all drivers.

    Had a new set up for new wheel , made by Rupe and me on TW, to try. First race was very new feeling and i could,nt go below 1,54 and did some mistake with the Ferrari. But i had no good set so driving in default. Race 2 in the Jag i did a 360 on the first lap but then it was better and got some big help from Denis Betty to learn how he placed the car, i couldn t follow his track every corner but better and better every lap so the last 5-6 lap,s i had a real good fight with Jimenez struggling with the Aston, but again a big mistake on last lap hitting the barrier And Denis :cry: But it was a great race for me for the first time with my new TR500RS. So big big thx to Rupe and Denis for helping me out, as admins you should learn others to be like you :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Sorry for departing early, I did have some driving lessons booked..:roflmao::roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:
    I was sitting in on the Driver academy, getting some good pointers, i might know how to get round a race track. I do it, but don't know how, ( im not saying im good fast ect.) but i cant explain the things needed to help others do what we do .. So now i have a idea of what to say at said moment,
    why how we brake..
    track position..
    throttle control
    breaking
    i have just gone through the basics of sim racing...
    guess what,, we have things to learn tricks and tips of car control..things i maybe did but did not know why i did it and the results it can lead to...
    in 90 mins i shaved 1.5 sec off stock car default set up normal track
    Somme guys in one evening took off 6 seconds,
    but the closer you are to max the harder it is to take more time off..

    I would love for us all to be able to pass on tips and work together to get us all racing at a constant speed. We don't have to be aliens speed, just get round the track in a big pack...:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I would say sign up to a driving academy for sure guys :)
    I will of course be passing on info i have to help when i can get some sort of plan together.
