    Welcome to week 34! This week we will be taking on the famous English circuit, Sebring in the Formula Renault 3.5!
    The most senior 'Formula Renault' was the Formula Renault V6 Eurocup started by Renault to run as part of Eurosport's Super Racing Weekends (ETCC and FIA GT Championship). Only two seasons were run between 2003 and 2004 before Renault left Super Racing Weekends and merged the series with the similar World Series by Nissan to create the Formula Renault 3.5 Series as part of the World Series by Renault in 2005.
    Snetterton Motor Racing Circuit is a motor racing circuit in Norfolk, England. Owned by Motor Sport Vision, it is situated on the A11 road some 20 km north-east of the town of Thetford and 30 km south-west of the city of Norwich. The circuit is named after the village of Snetterton, which lies about 2 km to the north-west of the circuit, although much of the circuit is actually in the adjoining civil parish of Quidenham.
    The circuit hosts races from series including the British Touring Car Championship, British Formula Three Championship and British Superbike Championship. From 1980 to 1994, the track hosted the UK's first 24-hour race, the Willhire 24 Hour. Since 2003 the 2CV 24 Hour Racehas been held at Snetterton on the 200 Circuit.

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    been on today practising.
    It sure is a hard one to master. I had to ride with AI to learn it at first.
    Hope someone is on tonight.
     
  10. I'll be there tonight :)
     
  11. Ah oops, sorry. Just remembered, I can't make tonight. :( Sorry!

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Had a good race here last night with only one other driver Axel.
    His quali pace was 2 sec better with a 1.37 but after a mistake on the opening lap by me, the gap stayed quite constant. Axel had a spin in the final corner and I was so surprised so see all the smoke I spun too and so missed the chance of a pass.
    We hald formation with Axel pulling about 4 sec bit then some spins on worn tyres left me +19 sec at the close.
    Nice things-managed to sit on a consistent pace of 1:40 except where the errors occurred.
    -Fuel testing was spot on and finished with enough for the in lap +1 litre!!
    Cheers, thanks for the racing

  13. Well did some testing with those 3.5 on snetterton. Awesome stuff, great track Sadly wasnt able to join as i had internet issues. But think one of the better cars in rf2 and the track really suites the car.
