    As Russell said, a very fun event.

    Qualifying: 3rd. I couldn't match Jesper's pace, but I was only a tenth or so off Steve.

    Race 1: I started well, and flip-flopped between 2nd, 3rd and 4th all race long - I had a couple of slip-ups, but had gotten back to 3rd by the last lap and was pressuring Chris for 2nd. Unfortunately I took him off in the last chicane... I did the polite thing and waited, but lost two positions in the process. So a 4th place finish - not bad considering.

    Race 2: I started well again, and managed to make my way up to 2nd again. I was pressuring Chris for the lead, and eventually got by him after the hairpin. I stayed in the lead for the rest of the race, taking another PMSC win. :D

    These events really need bigger grids... if you're reading this and aren't driving in these races, you're missing out on something special. Thanks Stefan and Eric for setting the event up as usual, and thanks to all the competitors... it was a Sunday morning well-spent.

    Such a long time since i fired Evo up and raced the Porsches,i thought track knowledge would come in handy but found a layout of Barca ive never been on,a sketchy off the pace race one ending in 2nd after stuff happening ahead.
    Race 2 i clicked some more things around in setup and was getting along a bit better now,still lost out too much at the new final turns sector,managed to get a slightly more worthy 2nd place which involved some racing for it.

    Thank You Stefan & RD

    Gary elected to stay out of the ranking fray some time ago and Admins have not removed the ranking tag in his profile block

    This event was a real struggle for me. I've never struggled this much with any other mod. Is there a trick to setting up these cars lol? All I messed around with was the camber, tire pressure, wing, steering lock, and fuel. Just couldn't get the car balanced, it was extremely twitchy.

    Fun event nonetheless! Thanks everyone.

    I seem to be good in the porsches for a couple of laps but can't seem to manage the tyres at all.
    I think it may be due to stepping out of the F1 & straight into these 'Hairdresser Specials' and braking far too late. The poor car ends up sliding into corners and overheating the rear tyres.
    Anyway, after 4 hours sleep after my gig on Saturday night and then 4 hours straight at the PC behind the wheel for my FPPS race I jumped into the Porsche server but it probably wasn't a good idea. I put a few good laps in but ran out of time getting the setup sorted.

    Qualified 2nd, not bad.
    Race 1 had a good start & was doing well to stay with the leader for the 1st half of the race. Small mistakes as described abover saw me lose too much time & I ended up spinning at some point to let Chris & Rhys through. Finished 4th.

    Decided I'd had enough sim racing at that point & left to spend some quality time with the Lawn Mower.

    Thanks for the race...
