    Is it wrong to prefer FWD racecars?

    Welcome to RD's Race 07 club @Oscar Gustafsson ! I hope you enjoy the race.

    This is a 40 minute race and will require a pitstop for at least two tires during the middle laps. If you aren't familiar with pit stops read this.

    Quali: Pulled a time from... somewhere... to line up 4th :)
    Race: These cars are not easy to get off the line, but only lost one position. Stuck my nose inside someone(?) into Keyhole; guess he wasn't expecting it, as he turned into me. Oh well; neither of us lost a significant amount of time. Then on lap 7, I tried to pass @Joe Cannarozzo at the end of the back straight, way too late, and nerfed the tyre wall, damaging my suspension (really?). Thankfully it was within the pit window. Spent most of the rest of the race just hotlapping, until I found Joe chasing me down at the end after the pitstops put me back in 4th, which I held onto.

    Makes up for last night, at least :D

    The more you race the better your cars get! Mine was fun to drive today.

    I put one lap in on race fuel to quali and I liked the time so I took it.

    Other than a nervous moment with Oscar at the chicane on L1 it was just lapping at race speed. Fr a while I thought that Joe had pitted and it looked from the time lost that he only took two tires so I had to stay on the ball until I went in. But then, I saw him in the pit with me and knew he had been tooling around in the grass somewhere.

    Thanks to all for showing up and grat's to Nelson and Peter for showing us real speed! This was a good show as we only lost one driver through the whole race!

    It was a good race !

    Didn't practise and I hadn't set up for the race, strangely I think I did well in race, trying not to make a big gap from Nelson Ullinskey which was a bit faster.
    In 2nd place, I had no fights for my position and none to push me. Unfortunately this was the only bad in the race, the good thing was that I had to hunt Nelson, trying to decrease the distance between me and him!

    You all did a good job, guys !
    Nelson it was nice running with you, see you next time.

    P.S.;
    1) As long as I drive in RD races the more I realize how enjoyable and intresting is the RD Race 07 club.
    2) Mid-ohio (chicane) it's not just a good track, it's a DREAM track, thanks Dennis !

    :)

    Didn't quite make it to a last-minute-qualy-join, I think I was home at about mid-warmup ;) Indeed, there's nothing planned for next friday, yet - with your recent speed in mind, I'm not exactly sure whether I'll get to see you that much :p
