    Sign me up please Dennis!

    Just posting my thoughts out loud here, but have you ever considered using a fuel multiplier of 2x in these 40 minute races? This would add an element of strategy because I do not think we would be able to make it on a single tank.

    Oh wow. Stickin with retro-Minis for the 3rd week now eh?
    I was sad to have missed the last race. I can only hope my sleep gets back in order and I can make this race (and the others this week)
    So put me down, I hope to be there.
    ..
    I am curious why we're doing 2x40 min instead of 80 min :O_o:

    I have no idea if I'll be awake or not for this. I'm having some nasty sleep issues (like 16-20 hrs / day sleeping) ... my body does this to me sometimes
    I hope to be back to "normal" sooner than later .. and I do hope to make this race. I haven't been racing much recently at all. :(

    Three of us Qualified and then thought it better to run off to Nordschleife for some Extreme driving, which was very worthwhile :):x3:

    And so went the last Friday race of the Retro Mini. Next week we will be back to running the Race07 BMW Mini as 2, it seems more in favor and 2, the Retro mini really sucked at Mont Tremblant :(

    I thought it was boring, hanging out in 3rd gear so much.
