even if its only 4 of us we'll still have fun! Maybe you guys a have an RD friend you can invite to the dance?

I send out PM's weekly trying to get more attendance and it is working but sometimes that personal invite form a friend can out a guy over the top.

Server is up Reggie.

I did a 1;49 earlier but no one told me we were running in the REVERSE direction so it doesn't count!

Join up regardless of your best time, it's good fun.

Thanks Chris! Actually I thought it was refreshing as this track sees so mush use[on public servers] in the normal direction. In the end it was all good racing.

At least I had a car st up for this race and didn't have to touch a thing[thank you public servers]!

R1: A good start and I'm off trailing the lead group. A lap later I ifind myself in the lead, you fast guys really have to get your acts together! Now I'm in the position I hate, fast guys behind me waiting like vultures for my tires to go off from defending against them. Well, I did my job and boiled some rubber off the tread. One by one the vultures came by to pass and shout an "Adios!" At least they did it with patience and good manners, all passes on me were very clean and well excecuted!
Dave must have had some setup problems because he came up from behind several tiems. For a while he was way back and I seemed to be holding him, then closer and closer as he poured it on and my tires wheezed. Good Racing guys!

R2: From P3 on the start I swerve around Eric E and folllow Koray to T2 where he takes the wide line and I crawl ahead on the inside. Koray does hi best to hold up the fast guys but a few get through. This is now a bad situation gotten worse! Then. like clockwork, the fast guys start greasing their tire treads with grass guts, Koray and I have been given a short repreive! My tires are good so I make the best of a bad day, execute "Plan B" and pour it on, hopefully the fast guys behind will be sweating it out as I pull away! This works till L4 ahen they all catch me up pretty much as a group. With no time to trade business cards they pass me, leaving me with tires that should only be found in a tire wall. Unable to get real control of my car, may pace slows and I drop into the clutches of Koray who disposes of me and I barely staay on track to finish.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening of racing. Tires going bad on me thru a race has been my biggest problem ever. Someday, after learning to drive, I'll get a handle on it.

Thanks Chrisopher, Ryan[?], Eric and RD!
