    @Denis Betty - OK, so I'm reluctantly having to sign out of tonight as they're moving the mandatory training (that was causing my R1 doubt) back an hour so it now starts at 18.30. Considering I'm in the office @06:45 each morning, my reaction = :mad:

    Sorry all, see you Sunday.

    Very good night, right up until I stuck a near priceless classic headfirst into a wall and banjoed the engine in R2. The nature of this week means that there are a lot of cars to practice on a long high speed circuit, which mean most mistakes end up a fair old way from the track...ie where the walls are. :rolleyes:

    I'm not usually a huge enjoyer of the American V8's, but on RSP they are pretty good fun. My Stingray ('74 hardtop) was a lovely, wallowy barge of a thing, albeit a barge with an old Saturn 5 booster attached. A few minor (for RSP) offs meant I was at the back, but managed to keep things together to the end, with the rate of attrition meaning that was a podium. Without that, there was no way I was catching the rest of you herberts. I did feel for @Hans Sneep who was mustard in the Capri, but a small brush of the wall took him out of the running with (I think) a double puncture.

    The theme of chat on TS for R2 was about jumping into cars cold with no practice on RSP, so I decided to join and lucked out by choosing the Daytona, where a couple of very basic setup clicks got it feeling lovely. Was thoroughly enjoying it, until I pushed beyond it's limits (that I hadn't previously explored, of course), and went headfirst into one of the closer walls, thereby knackering the Fezza. I quietly withdrew from the server so as not to disturb the others, feeling pretty gutted, but knowing that the Ferrari is a pretty well sorted (if mid-pack in pace) car.

    Looking forward to Sunday.:thumbsup:

    Thanks Denis & RD

    Very good race night again indeed... And with all the usual Big Guns being away either to Le Mans or to Euro2016, I was there to pick up the scraps..:laugh:

    Like Stu said this track really works with the big lumpy V8's, and my R1 weapon of choice was the open-top '68 Vette. With its enormous power and Pantera-like brakes that won't start fading until halfway lap 3...:D.. I managed to take the R1 pole.
    First few laps Hans was giving me quite a run for my money.. I was enjoying the battle but unable to pull away from him until his unfortunate brush.. With the pressure now gone I slightly lost focus, played around a bit too much an eventually lost the victory to Peter in his RSR just 2 corners before the end:roflmao::laugh:

    For Race 2 I slightly hesitated to jump into that Porsche RSR cold, as I've seen a few folks struggle with it, but decided to go ahead anyways..
    This worked wonderfully with a setup I found here on the forum thread (I think it's @Yves Larose's :thumbsup: ). Again I got the pole, and in R2 I comfortly sat in the lead for a while. That is until @Denis Betty, RD's biggest BMW lover:D, figured out how to enforce his will onto the Schnitzer he was in and closed the gap in no time... He then made me work really, really hard to stay ahead, I had a few hairy moments in the Porsche, but in the end succeeded this time..
    What a fight that was..:thumbsup: really awesome fun!

    I really like this car class, or maybe more the car/track combo! Thanks Denis for the event, and all for racing.

    And last but not least:

    Best of luck to @Allan Ramsbottom , @Stig Bidstrup , @Denis Betty , @Jarek Kostowski , @Yves Larose and @Ross McGregor (Sorry if I forget anyone) racing the 24H Le Mans Classic Event this weekend! Enjoy your time in France guys!
