    This week we are racing open class again. Not all cars in the class are perfectly matched around this track :confused:, so as an experiment, I would ask that the quicker drivers avoid the very quickest cars in class. This (if it worked) would encourage close racing throughout the field and would hopefully increase the fun levels. It'll only really work if we all buy into the idea, but if it does work, it should help keep everybody interested and build the spirit of camaraderie (thanks Jarek) that we here at HistorX RC pride ourselves upon.
    Once again guys, please take a different car for each race this week.
    I'm copying Thomo and taking the Escort and the 2002ii.

    server is up!

    Escort & 2002tii for me.

    Well that was a complete nightmare. Both races I couldn't see the lights at the start. First race I went to follow cam, messed my start up, couldn't get back to cockpit (driving cams was not mapped) and took @Allan Ramsbottom out. Sorry Allan. Race 2 as I went to grid my throttle was buried until I blipped it, I couldn't see the lights, decided to go on the beeps, couldn't hear the beaps, stalled my engine and caused more people problems.
    I just had some work come in for Thursday so I'm gonna miss that. See you all on Sunday, when I WONT be taking the Escort. :mad:

    Another comfortable combo for me....just had a extremely poor :(start in race 1 which landed me in last place and I unfortunately got caught up in the Denis Allan show..... but luckily no major damage was caused. My practice pace in the Capri was good so I felt that I had a good chance to have lots of fun trying to catch up and working my way back up the latter..... and fun it was.

    In Race 2 I started poorly again but not nearly as bad as in race 1 but Roland edged by me. Later I passed Roland and ended up battling Jarek for most of the race...who was giving a me chance to hold the lead. After having a little trouble in the chicane Roland passed us both and we three had a great battle to the end with all three of us crossing the finish line together.

    If I wasn't retired I think that I would quit my job and take up virtual racing for a living.:D:D

    Thanks to Denis for the event, grats to podiums and Cheers to all drivers.

    If you think i was going easy on you, think again :). That was a proper good fight with no holding back, you were holding the lead (despite me racing my behind off) just fine :thumbsup:.

    Pure fun this event, thanks Denis & clubbers!

    Forgot to write a report on this, but I just dropped in for race one and had a great time getting on top of the 2800. In the race I had an awesome battle with @Jarek Kostowski and @Roland until me and Jarek's squabbling gave Roland a decent gap to get the win. I even forgot how many laps were left as I was having so much fun! It was quite interesting as Jarek's Porsche was a bit more planted in the corners while the beemer had the oomph on the straights. A few dabs of oppo prevented disaster on more than one occasion, but I think we avoided contact completely!

    Hopefully i'll be around for some more races again. Cheers all!
