    As the WTCC events are as, if not more popular than the mini Friday events, should I start a wtcc skinpack too?

    I'll be there today.
     
  10. Bit of a lonely traipse round the track, five drivers isn't much fun.

    Of all the proper sims at RD, GTL seems to be doing the most business and it's even older than this.
    So it can't be an age thing.
    Where are all the racers?

    I'm taking a week off :) as Arnie says, "I'll be back....."

    The boss is on holiday this week which leaves me to run the factory while he's away. Its very stress and mind consuming and I'm pretty wiped out by the end of the day.

    Used this event to familiarise myself with the track before tomorrows mini race so wasn't expecting to be in touch with the fastest guys......and I wasn't lol
    Found a competitive pace towards the end of the race but of course that was far too late to make any difference.

    As familiar with the track as I am I just couldn't find a stable car to drive. Opted to sit out Q.

    L1, a tap trying to avoid the mess at T1 and then pushed Bob around going into a corner soon after. Everyone looked so far ahead and they were. Bob was able to bridge, I just saw the gap increasing. So, I decided to not pit an make it a test of my ability to run on tire carcass's. I could see after the race that I had incurred some front aero damage, my pit never notified me of that, not that it would have changed anything.

    A thanks to all that came to race and for so many on TeamSpeak!
