    The second time I'll do a practice race before the main event. I hope it won't turn out the same way like it did, when I participated in a practice race the first time before the Silverstone race. Practice race was perfect - main event was a disaster. But I can't hide from racing in such a great place. :)

    How many laps will we do each stint? 24 (= 30 min devided with 1:15:000)?

    I'd like to add a little side note. Last saturday I had a great 5 lap sprint race with Gaetano and Nicholai. I was chasing Nico very close the whole 5 laps and I noticed that breaking after the tunnel in slip stream is extremely difficult. The decreased downforce and the tricky crest make the wheels lock very easily. And this effect will increase with race fuel and harder compounds. Outbraking on the inside will make it even harder, because the crest is bigger there which increases the risk of locked wheels again. I allready pray now, that it's not me, who pushes someone there. :rolleyes:

    btw Nico, you asked me if you've been "too wide" there. Definitely not!!! I can only ask everyone to be as wide as possible (in a fair way of course) even if you know the following car can drive quicker. This is Monaco! I'd never call it blocking, even if you defend the inside line of each corner.
    Of course it's up to everyone himself to let a quicker car pass easily to lower the own risk and to stay in the rhythm. But please dare a little battle sometimes. :wink: :tongue:

    I hope I am allowed to participate although I never had the time to race this season. (FPES was crashing with an other league I race in)
    What is the usual time?

    Yes you can join, no problem.

    Usual time is qual @ 8pm if you are in the UK, 9pm if you are in Sweden :) The day of the week is Wednesday.

    2x24 laps sounds good Reik, and it was very enjoyable to race 5 laps with you on my tail from start to finish :)

    PS: What does it take to get your brother to join us next season?

    Good question!

    I think money won't be the major reason, lol. :tongue: (Of course you can buy everyone but I'm afraid you won't have enough for him :rolleyes:)

    Ok, serious now. I talked about it with him some month ago. He told me that wednesday evening most likely is the one and only evening without any work related or social life related duties. So at this time he seemed to need this day for some relaxing (if I didn't get him wrong). Which I understand very well.
    Hopefully things changed a little in the meantime and I can persuade him to join us the following season. He is definitely a very solid racer with a great attitude to match us easily and he knows the car. So I still hope I can get him interested again... :D

    Thx for the race guys.
    I smashed my front suspension in the first corner, lol.
    I was in the way for people racing more than usual, sorry.
    I hope for better luck next time.
