    The question was asked about the chicane version of the track, sorry it was a bit hard to answer in the chat.
    When i was testing i found the bigger cars still gained an advantage using the chicane version. i thought the lighter car would be more nimble but found the bigger cars can run the chicane a lot straighter, which could of lead to a bottle neck. The over all lap times were still very close for me either way, about 1 to 2 seconds a lap slower using the chicane. The heavy car if kept on track, probably has the advantage. But keeping it on track is the key, one little mistake and the lighter car gets it chance to shine though the twisty bits and try and pull a gap before the straight.
    It can also be a bit of a challenge swapping for one car to the other for race 2, the braking distances and lines taken can be hard to get used to,,but it all adds to the surprise of who adapts quickest...

    Hi guys. I'm sorry for another week of failed attempts to race with you again..Like Bathurst last week, these power - handling events really looked like fun.
    ATM I just have too much RL stuff on my plate to be able to regularly join races, or even practice in fact. Nothing serious thankfully, apart from being very busy I'm fine. I'm just unable to place simracing as high on my priority list as I'd like to. Hopefully in a few weeks things will calm down a bit.

    Happy racing!

    No worries Nuno, We all had the benefit of racing the other cars in the week, so kind of expected the problems swapping over and the extra gentle care needed or it felt like it in the big yank tank. Thank you for at least giving it a go,

    Again i had a blast in the 2 different types of cars, a cheeky win in the first race after starting from the back again, :whistling::whistling: i was pushed all the way by Allan, who was maybe a bit quicker:thumbsup: ( he spun on the start so we both had a nice gap to bridge after i slowed to wave at him sideways on the start line..:p

    Race 2 was more of the same with a even bigger gap to chase, i left a big gap before i started, i think i got carried away.. then it was foot down all the way to the flag, chasing Allan this time as hard as i could for a 2nd place.

    Great fun all the same well done guys, roll on next week, i fear Denis maybe on fire as its his favourite combo.. (no pressure then.):roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:


    Thanks to all that raced this week its was a fun time ..:notworthy::notworthy:
