    I'm in.
     
  15. Excellent fun tonight - I thought I was quite fast around here but you guys just blow me away. Come to think of it, that seems to happen to me every time I race.
    Again, so sorry Michael.... you were having a good fight 'till I tried to join in.....
    Pretty good turn out tonight in the end. Great to see Bjorn on track again, many thanks to him and RD for another crazy night in the Radicals.

    Yup, I got in but never really got the car right, just couldn't trust it. How's that for an excuse? It also took me a while to remember the track but I could seldom place the car where I really wanted it.

    Quaili: Yup I did that too!

    R1: I got out of sorts in T1 and lost ground. I thought I tapped someone and waited but I can't remember seeing it in the replay. Way back and no hope to find the pack. I can't catch Wesley but Marco seems to have a car problem thats giving him greif and eventually he is behind me. I can maintain 9th to the finish!

    R2: Better start, maybe this is where I tapped someone, I'll check replay later. Agaion, no speed as I just wasn't prepared for this race. I didn't even download the track until after I signed up[another excuse ;)]. This race I had trouble keeping Marco a safe distance behind but never made a bad enough misteke for him to catch me. Again 9th.

    Thanks for the fun guys! Hope to cach more Euro races this winter.
     

  17. ..I'm going to sleep with your car in my eyes still :)
    I'm slow driver, but always funny drive with you rocket men...

    Always love to race the Radicals they are good fun. Short race report

    Quali Got pole with a 129.9 so was very happy

    Race1 Got a good start and was away tryin to get a bit of a gap on the field and in T1 on lap 2 i run wide onto the grass and managed to save it and only lost 1 position. I was about 2 secs of the leader and was able to reel him in. He run wide in T1 and i put a pass on him, but in T2 he outbraked and hit me side ways and didnt wait, Got goin and was still in P2 but Suspension damage and 4 seconds behind the leader. I got the gap down to under a second but run outa laps and tyres so i finished P2

    Race 2 Starting 7th on the grid this time and of we go down to T1 everybody was goin for it. Few people had made mistakes and i gained a couple of positions but the tight chincane at the back of the track on lap 1 there was 2 people had a comin together, i run over the kurbing to try and miss them and spun. Nightmare dead last so i get my head down and i have to say it was the madest race i have been in for a long time. Managed to get P2 again and was right on Karls tail on the last lap.

    Thanks every1 for racing and thanks to Bjorn and RD for this event
     
  19. Was great fun. Nver driven these or at this circuit before so it was a real shot in the dark when I went out to qualify. And of course, with any shot in the dark, sometimes you miss...and I did ... at turn 1, understeering off....P11 for me :)

    Race 1 was a bit of a journey having a good race with a few and getting faster and faster as I learnt the line. Finished 5th and was quite happy with that.

    Race 2 was a much more mixed affair. I started 4th and got up to P2after some nice overtaking....yay me!!! Took 1st after the leader made a mistake....kept it on the tracek and in first for quite a few laps...was feeling good. But Karl was reeling me in at about 0.5 a lap. I started to push and lost front end grip within a lap. Karl was quite patient and took me in a very clean over taking manouver a couple of laps later. I kept on his tail and then repassed a lap later...but it was too good to last and I lost it through the fast chicane, spinning wildly and dropping to 6th....Never have I been so frustrated with my driving!! So I took off after 4th and 5th who were in a great fight. They got cought up in the last chicane and I stamped on the brakes to avoid them. Alas Eric didnt' see us come to an almost stop and he hit me with quite a bit of force....racing accident and all, but enough to wreak my rhythm....

    So I manage after a bit of a wasted few laps to finish in 7th....what a horrendous way to finish after holding 1st place for over half the race :-(

    Was great fun though...and Eric, don't worry about the hit, was just one of those racing incidents. Look forward to racing with you again.
     
  20. Thanks again Michael - I get so upset with myself if I hit anyone....
