    Kinda crummy race, but not really bad for the first time driving the car, and my first race in over 2 weeks or so :).

    @Casper -Stupid move on my part and I am suprised I just didn't fly straight off the track and into the wall like I should have.

    @Jack - I ended up getting too much of the curb before the left-hander and the car just wouldn't turn in so I had to lift completely to try and get around the turn. For some reason I had trouble with this car on the curbs. At the bus stop the car lurched left I'm guessing because of the damage.

    Hit the inside of the last corner (top right hander) at Les Combes and my hands weren't quick enough to recover and hit the wall....pit for repairs a second time :(. Then had a spin at the bus stop chicane. Wheee!

    Other than those goofs, I did pretty well. Got behind @Sniper both times out of the pits and it was kinda fun trying to play catch up. The good laps I had were mostly due to pitting twice and getting new tires each time. Was fun tying to get used to this car!

    I think I need to talk to the wife about moving Down Under. Most of my mistakes probably are due to not having enough sleep :).

    I live about a half hour away from Detroit, MI. So times for the AU races start at 5am or 6am for me. Not exactly the times needed to be fully alert
