    Adjusted starting time to 20:00 GMT due to winter time changes.

    No rain in this one, just cold weather:)

    But my experience is that you need higher camber settings in rain. Though there are some people around who know more about setups than I do:) Anyways, it might be a good idea to practice rainy sessions as they'll come eventually, even if not in this one. ;)

    Well, that was interesting :)

    My first to the track and with the Mossler. I loved this track. I like any track that has the undulations and quirks as this track does.

    The first hilly, bump corner I never did learn to take with any consistancy. Each time over it was a hope and a prayer. I lost it once here during the race. I had 4 other offs and each and every time because I looked to the numbers.

    Worse still was having to use the mini map to see what corner is coming up next? Even after a total of 30 laps I'm still ahving to use it.

    Good fun.

    What was up with your car, Peter? Lucky for me I never suffered any car damage during my 'offs'.

    Thanks guys for coming, I hope you had fun!

    I just tried the wets in race too:D But I realized soon they're only good for 3 laps. And probably due to heavier fuel load they went over 130C and it wasn't really nice driving on them so I went to the pits for a new set of slicks. They worked well in quali though, slicks too cold, wets too hot, but I managed to get my best quali time on wets at the end:)

    But why wets?? The Simbin session info said it was dry with a dry track.

    Yes it was dry, it was just a quick idea to adress cold weather. Slicks were too cold, and during official practice it popped to my mind like this: "Ahaa, wets heat up quicker, let's try them". The funny thing is that they worked for 2-3 laps:) But didn't in race obviously so it wasn't that great idea, but at least I've tried something I never did before!
