    Thanks @Craig Dunkley for tonight, fantastic variation of events you're putting up just lately (though I miss GT3 races and my mistress.... 650S:p).

    Had two great races with hard though fair fights - I think a (unique?) problem with Croft is the two very slow hairpins at the end - easy to run wide and not see someone that's dived up the inside, 1st race I got caught when @Ronnie Böhme ran slightly wide, my line brought me inside for the undercut, then someone else was there.... 3 into 'there' didn't go:roflmao: Sorry to you Ronnie but I had nowhere to go.

    Hope we use slicks with this car next time, should be more controllable (for me lol) :thumbsup:

    Again, thanks for the uber fair racing to all:)

    EDIT: Damn! Wish I'd seen @JoelK revised setup before, just tried it for a couple of laps and .5 quicker straight away, awesome Joel!

    No worries mate :). I've got quite a few bumps and bruises but nothing serious.
    I was struggling hard with brake ballance and the fact that this track has no grip at all once you leave the racing line. Combined with the lack of practice, this resulted in a verry inconsistent performance for me. Still, I've had a few great battles, tying to keep you guys behind :D.

    It was good to be back! Thanks for hosting @Craig Dunkley.:)

    The only problem I experienced was overtaking is near impossible with this car/track combo. If you were quicker you had to go off the racing line when overtaking, resulting in braking way to early if you don't want to lock the tires. Diving was not possible because of the exact same issue. Tried it once and it resulted punting John (sorry!!:redface:) and spinning us both off the track.
    It resulted in me trying to put pressure on the guy in front of me and hoping he would make a mistake which allowed you to overtake while driving the racing line. I guess it worked, because the second race I raced last to 4th.

    The cars are good fun to drive and with the amazing setup of @JoelK it was nice to push the car to it's limits. Thanks for the race guys!:thumbsup:
