    Eric Dennis and I both showed up for this event.
    It is a great fun and difficult track.
    My best for the day was a 1:34.2 that surely could have been bested by several club drivers.
    Eric was working with an Xbox controller as his wheel had failed on him.

    R1: I took the lead and tried to keep Eric close behind. He always had me worried as he didn't take to the track much for practice or the Q and I didn't know his pace. Nice that I have a good rear view botton on my wheel, the mirrors on these cars are useless. Distorted blobs show on both of mine and I can't tell where a car is at all. Several times I thought that Eric had to be sandbagging as all of a sudden his pace would quicked, to the point I was going to the max to stay ahead! But I kept my place.

    R:2 Eric took the lead off the line and held it for two laps. After going wide in T1 he relinguished it and for this race I decided to drive the way I had been practicing. Strange, I was driving OK and lap times were dropping fairly nicely but Eric remained the same distance behind, hmmmm:confused:. I pressed an opened a gap. At some point Eric disappeared, not even in the pit, maybe disconnected?

    Well, I used practice to get used to the car and to get reaquainted with this nice track. It's been a staple of the F1 sim world and a while since I've been on it.
    These would go nicely at Limerock Mountain.

    Thanks RD, Eric and Eric!
  8. Liierock mountain wil be making an appearance very soon in more than one class Dennis!

    Maybe these beauties on a Saturday or Sunday night there?
