Hmmm Yup.
I'll have another go at the Beemer.
Not had much luck with COTM lately.
Monza will hopefully turn it around for me

Pity you're not around Stu!

Doubt if I'll make this one, the Bitter Half (the Petulant Pygmy) is having a wee drinky poo this evening to celebrate her Birthday which was Wednesday so I'd best stay away from this thing, did a few laps of testing yesterday and today, setup is in online folder, 2:06:xx best time.

enjoyed that. i "survived" my first race.

qual 6 of 8 - suprised myself there, especially as i hadn't completed a lap with out a spin of some kind in the lap.

race good start, for the first 10m then went to 4th instead of 2nd - moved back to second before lifting clutch but too keen and "left turn clyde!" straight across the racing lines. still this race was all about learning for me and learning i did.

i found out that h-shifting is fun.

i found out that h-shifting can lead to missed gears.

i found out that missing a gear then going backwards across an apex totally out of control still counts as a cut and will earn you a sng eventually.

3 sng i collected. not bad for my first race.

managed a 2:10.8 in the race so happy that my quali pace could be carried thru.

big thanks to knut for hovering around near me till we lost touch at the pit stops was good dicing.

thanks for allowing a very green GTL'er to race with you, i'll be back. :)
