    Great racing guys. First race was a fantastic duel between Jack and myself. The Alfa had me on the corners but the cortina had the grunt on the straights. I wasnt fast enough to make a pass so I did my usual technique of hoping the other guy would make a mistake before me. Finally it came right near the end of the race. Jack went wide on the final corner so I jumped up the inside and took the spot. Great clean racing.
    The track was just perfect for these cars. Sitting behind Rupe in the second race watching the cortina drift out the rear and lift the front right on the tight right handers was a joy to watch. Thanks for the race gents. Let's hope the historix racing never ends.

    I had to get my nut down last night after the race, but I'll throw the results for these 2 races up tonight (even if Race 1 will read "DNF:Engine" for 50% of the field) :thumbsup:

    Raced most of the first race with virtually no engine health, my mistake at start line spinning the wheels.
    tried to make a overtake and spun and blew the engine with 3 turn to go :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:

    I guess it helps that i actually had no idea what my engine health was then. Didnt know it was actually a thing. Maybe the Cortina and Mini are bullet proof?

    They are not bulletproof these 2 but close :thumbsup: also depends on auto clutch , if you go fully manual which a lot do here then its more easy to get it wrong -( blow the engine ) and its a good thing you cant see the health, so you don't have to worry about it :)
