    Nice cars which are fun to drive, which is just as well as I had two lonely races this time. I spent most of my time in the mid-field but around 7-10sec away from both the car in front and behind.

    Quick question: What tweak do I need to make in order to retain control of my car after the race has finished? I see you guys stopping wherever or doing doughnuts, but mine usually crashes into a wall or another car after crossing the line...

    Nice cars indeed, great fun to drive and very forgiving at the limit; well, at my limit at least.. And the only setup for it posted here felt quite good so I put in a decent Q1 lap, but at quite a margin to the leaders..:confused:

    So in Race 1 I managed to hang on to 3rd place from right after the start while watching Stuart and Knut slowly drive off into the sunset at over a sec. per lap. But with Bob in my mirror almost the entire race as a reminder that any mistake would not go unpunished, I could do consistent laps and finished 3rd.

    The 6-cylinder Porsche felt quite similar, so with minor setup changes I felt good to go. Managed 4th in Q2, and at R2 start I could even sneak to to lead.
    With Stuart very close behind for over half the race, I feared he was just waiting til he got bored to pass me.
    And while Knut was busy making a great comeback after an off, I managed to stay ahead and won!! YES!! :)

    But before I had the chance to get my head too high up in the clouds, I noticed that a Knut in hot-pursuit-mode could go round this track about 2 secs faster than my best time.. Wow!!:eek:

    Grats to Stuart and Knut, and thank you to everyone for another fun race night, all very clean and careful but some friendly TS namecalling :D

    Had a great time in these cars last night. I'd driven it before but it felt better than I could remember. Really loved the handling and especially the crisp steering feel. Would love to see more of this car. And I am actually becoming a fan of this track now.

    Race 1 was a great battle with Stuart. Was able to keep the racing quite close and switched positions a few times. The 904 was really well composed and controllable.

    It seemed like Race 2 would be a replay of Race 1 with me, Stuart and Roland. However in the first lap I didn't pay attention to the braking points of Stuart and Roland and I ended up on the lawn and at the back of the field. For the rest of the race I gunned it and had some great clean racing along the way. Was able to catch up with Stu at the end and had another close finish.

    BTW I just remembered this video I watched last week with Walter Röhrl and the 904:
