    Note 1: We will be using both Healey's. Race1- 1098cc and Race 2- 1275cc+ the liveries from the download pack
    Note 2: We are using the SIMBIN lobby for this event. See here how to switch lobby
    Note 3 : We run a superpole qually, you get one chance only at a outlap and qually lap. Take it easy on your outlap and get you car in a good position to run you qually lap, leave enough room to allow for the unexpected from the car infront
    you don't get another go if you have to take avoiding action..

    Its time for Healey fun. Another new track that's only small and should produce the same fun as the
    Mini /Abarth from the previous week.
    long sweeping bends into tightening corners should have us on out toes.

    The Sprite is pretty stable overall, the 1098 especially as it doesn't have the torque to really break the rears free, so getting it somewhere predictable and consistent (which your setups certainly tend to, Warren) is perfect.

    Done some testing with Rupe&Tim last night the Sprite is a nice little driver.
    The track has two tight chicanes unforgiving it's very easy to cut them and loose your lap.

    Yes, please!
  18. One of the nicest events for me. And had a lot of fun.
    Took advantage of the fact a couple of drivers in front of me lost there places. What happened? For a few laps on fourth place as I can remember.
    Than I lost seconds per round.
    Eventually finished on satisfying place for me.
    Thanks for the fun, guys.
    Thanks for organizing this event, Rupe.

    Well after a good night testing, I woke up this morning as felt like death and through the day it got worse...I went to bed and thought id be ok later .. but no.. still felt worse.. I think ive got flu or something.. So i spent most of the race sneezing and coughing and sweating .. not good at all..
    but i still had fun..
    We had a new guy racing tonight .. Brain.. after a few issues we got him in for the second race.. sorry to all if it caused a bit disruption...
    But hopefully were through it now and next time we can have a better start to the night..
    But welcome Brian and hope you enjoy our little club and look forward to racing with you again..
    dont worry youl will soon be up to speed and enjoying it more.. just shout if there anything else you need.. we can always drop on T/speak to help out..

    A very interesting couple of races.
    It's hard to imagine that the same track and almost the same car (except for a slightly bigger engine) could be so different. Race 2 was waaaaay more tricky than race 1. :O_o:
    The track did have it's demons though, especially avoiding the dreaded cut track warnings. :devilish:

    Race 1 in the 1098 was really nice, the car was pretty stable and flowed the track pretty well. I had a good race with Stuart but he was always comfy and in control, he even slowed up towards the end to orchestrate a very close finish, I think. Grats Stu. :thumbsup:

    Race 2 in the 1275 was very tricky. The car was much more of a handful, making the cut track warnings deadly. During practice I was collecting cut tracks like Jack's sister collects fan mail. So I was very careful during the race and managed to avoid them. Unfortunately, most of the other drivers were getting stop n go's, so there wasn't much close racing.
    I had plenty of excitement though, dodging spinning cars that kept appearing in front or re-appearing from the grass back on track but out of control. :p

    Thanks to Rupe for organising, and to all who joined us.
    Special welcome to Brian, having his first outing, you sure had a lot to deal with and not much time to learn. Rest assured, it will get much easier after a couple of races, especially when you get everything setup and become familiar with the screens and processes. Then you can concentrate on the driving and learning to love these old classic cars. ;)

    Rupe, I hope you get over that nasty wog quickly.
