    Sorry guys. I gave this car a try and we did not get along very well. I cannot drive this car so I have to withdraw tonight. :-(

    What an awesome challenge! Challenge being the operative word here, as the GTO is a very impressive car and blast to drive, but (in my hands at least) surely a handful to navigate over this bumpy track.
    I think we all had our share of mistakes and hairy moments, and I think in the end the guys with the least mistakes won (not trying to diminish the winners in any way!!:cautious:) Anyway, in both races that would definitely not be me.:D

    In Race 1 I was pretty careful, slid off track a few times but it was a lot of fun, and overall I I felt I did pretty good actually. :)

    Race 2 however my performance was laughable at best, pathetic at worst. Somehow I managed to get Pole in Q2, thanks to someone's cat.;) So far, so good!
    Downside was, once on the starting grid I found that on first row you can't see the starting lights :confused:, so I had to switch to Swingman cam, but then ofc I had no revcounter (I I know... I know... get GID..:D). Anyways, after a nightmare of a start I started to push too hard to make up for it.
    That way I quickly took the lead on the most-times-off-the-track leaderboard, leading me to push even harder, and thus going off even more often.. well you get the picture.:whistling:
    I did some super-fast laps in the process, never stopped smiling all race long, but overall my performance was not that great.

    Due to the nature of both track and car, I felt this event was more of a really great driving event than a pure door-to-door racing event, and IMO it's great to have one of those every now and then.:thumbsup:.

    So Thanks Denis for the event, and thanks all who raced. Bring on that Capri..!

    Looks like the Capri will be quicker and a LOT easier to get around this lovely circuit. :)
