    As we explained in World Sprint Tour (WST) week 1, WST is about close racing throughout the field. It features small, driveable cars, on short tracks. The aim is to produce action packed, 25 minute races, where everybody is involved in a dust up with a close rival.

    Gents - after some great racing at Vayline, we now move to Canada for Mission Raceway. For this event we're driving the eminently chuckable Fiat 850, which arguably provided some of the closest racing of the first sprint week.

    There is only really one quirk to mention about Mission Park - if you go straight on through T4L, through the cones and out the other side rejoining at T6L (ie avoiding the Cascades), you will receive a cut and lose a lap. So, if you balls it up going into T4 and end up not quite making the corner, DO NOT just carry on straight, take your medicine, recover safely and get back to T5R. I don't really think anyone could complain if they lost a lap for missing 3 corners (ie 33% of the turns on a lap).

    Try this set from @Quas.
    Some people find this car tricky. TBH I just couldn't get it for ages. This set transformed the car for me.

    Well, there are some classic tracks that we all know and love. I said I'd be scheduling some, but I've got carried away with suggested tracks and being busy etc.etc. So next week we're at Topeka. We raced there in the early days of HX and you are gonna love it mate. After that, a classic that we all know and love.
    Stick a list of suggestions for tracks on the suggestions thread. You could start with Mid Ohio. If anyone wants to add to it, just reply and edit the text to include your track(s).

    EDIT: If you wanna suggest a track/car(s) combo, feel free and I will do my best to take a look. :)

    :( I will not make it tonight..:(

    I've tried every trick I knew :sick:, other than faking a heart-attack, to wriggle out of attending some $H!T-4$$ family meeting at my in-laws' tonight that my wife insisted required my presence..

    ...but...


    ... I failed :cry:

    So have fun gents ! CY on sunday

    Thanks all, that was great fun! Very nice racing from all of you. Loving this series and especially this car:inlove:

    Thank you Denis for organizing and Stu for the great skins!

    BTW was thinking maybe we should have a thread where we can post and discuss setups for the sprint series?
