    If you're referring to that bump I got from a white fabcar after the hairpin, I was pretty sure it was you. I froze and didn't know which side you wanted to pass and was just trying to keep it straight.:( I don't listen to team speak during races. It's too distracting.
    I should have stuck with the fabcar. I was trying to round out the field with the Monza cause I didn't see any when I joined in the first time. That 50/50 tranny is a drifters dream. Too bad I suck at drifting.
    Hey Greg! Were's my money!:D

    I couldn't find my pitbox. I'll watch replay to see where it went.

    Just to add, for anyone who might find themselves a lap down, and the leaders are trying to pass. If you’re not currently fighting for position, back off the throttle and don’t take the faster race line. In Steve’s case I went up the inside twice, and he closed the door. I’m pretty sure it was un intentional, but Greg had a lot riding on this one, so who knows!:p

    I did not offer it to you, as such your work for me was gratis! ;)

    This was one of my best races. Even my win at RA was not as clean as this race. I did notice, while watching the replay, that when I made the pass on Tobin I got inside and could have even been considered to "own" that position, but we also bumped.

    @tobin, I apologize for that when I passed. I do not like to pass like that.

    Otherwise the only other issue I had was at the end of the race when two guys tangled in Turn 11. I had to stop to let them get sorted out, but only lost a few seconds.

    I ran consistent laps with very few misses. On lap 2 it looks like I went wide into T 7 (hairpin before the esses) but I did that on purpose to see if I could get an outside look on Tobin.

    I think I may retire now...I have run a perfect race. :)



    Wait...Bock managed to slip in a fastest lap. I cannot let that stand. :mad:

    Retirement over!

    That was just as much my fault for coming back up into you. You did a terrific job of finding a way by cleanly.

    Hahaha. That’s why I laughed when you had fastest lap, because I was under seconds behind you, and stole back fastest lap. I didn’t say anything because you were feeling good about it. Looking back tho I should have rubbed it in. You might have spun out in a fit of rage. Bwahaha!!

    Great race tho Greg. First class! And you to Rad! Dang man I couldn’t get over your podium. Serious skill brother!

    I’m not really kicking myself... maybe a little, but I went with a pretty tall first gear in the 935, because I could get it to pull hard out of turns. The downside of that is it’s almost impossible to get it going from a stop, hence the poor start. Oh well. I had a blast!
