  2. Can you maybe do some of this on the weekends? In Arizona, this happens at 2:00 pm so I wouldn't be able to make any of the weekday races.

    I'm in!

    /edit: my, my.. and there I was, thinking the gear ratios at Gothenburg were a bit extreme :D
    Also, the barriers over here are likely made of landmines, so be careful ;)

  16. Gonna make it short here.

    Qualified second after being third or so quick in practice. I did not let it bother me that Bjorn and Nuno were faster than me in practice, I worked more on driving conservatively to protect my tyres :sneaky:. This turned out to be the right call as I pulled away from Bjorn after the first turn of the first lap of the first race :D. Dominated the whole thing, but the track was fun to drive :thumbsup:!

    Second race I started way in the back alongside Bjorn :ninja:. Lights went off, he, I and Nuno began to carve our way through the field like a knife would tender steak :p. Quickly, Nuno got to the front, I behind him, followed by Bjorn . We were all pretty close, and my tyres were screaming bloody murder as I tried to catch Nuno :ninja:. After the half way point, I got past him and led to the finish :D.

    Great event, thanks for organizing Dennis, and I look forward to another awesome event on Thursday! :thumbsup:

    Phew.. Can't we do another round of Gothenburg? ;) Yet another tyre-burning track over here.

    Was doing fairly well through practice sessions and quals put me in pole - when warm up came up, however, everyone was suddenly improving and driving sub-1:03's :O
    In addition to that, I started quite lousy and Nelson passed me in T1. Even though I tried to keep up with him, that was about it - I wasn't losing too much time (at first) but getting close enough to pass was never an option ;) Halfway into the race, the tyres got really hot and pretty much decomposed - I concentrated on keeping enough time between me and Nuno in 3rd, which worked well. Right until the final lap's T1, when I spun and almost lost P2. I could recover just in time to finish about 2secs ahead of Nuno :)

    With that history tyre-wise, I was pretty worried about race #2, considering I'd have to push pretty hard, starting from P7. However, a rather.. hectic first lap put Nuno, Nelson and myself into P1-3 respectively. Nuno did a great job defending P1 until he had an off in T3 allowing the two of us to pass him. Once again, my tyres were burning away while Nelson was pulling away ;) Safely drove P2 home with slightly less tyre wear.

    Thanks for racing everyone & thanks for organising, Dennis! See you around next time!

    In general I love 3rd gear corner, but not these third gear corners! Unfortunately it's on the schedule and run we must :)

    The car came together well in the practices and I got in a good lap for quali. In warmup everyone was, as Bjorn said, much quicker but what could I do.

    Race 1: Not boring but for me rather uneventful, a bump here a pass there, not in my favor though.

    Race 2: I bumped an Alfa in T1 and couldn't get back out, I think another car had a touch on my rear though replay doesn't show it. Anyhow, ended up on the infield grass and way last. Running close behind Krzysztof snd I got sa bump from Belet, no problem guy! Recovering from that I ran straight into a wall and suffered damage that hurt performance but did not require a pit stop. I tried to charge up to whoever was up ahead , closed a bit but fell way short.

    Thanks all for signing up!

  20. Nearly forgot about this :redface:!

    Here's the link for the race winning setup :coffee:. So there is no confusion, I used Ramon's setup. Also, much of it comes down to driver style and protecting tyres. Seat Leon STCC - Sturup | RaceDepartment - F1, Motorsport, Sim Racing Also, I only made one adjustment and lowered the steering lock to 18 degrees with my wheel set to 270 degrees of rotation ;)
