Phew.. I've never been to this track, ever - and I'm having quite a hard time 'getting it', feels kinda bumpy? But that might be just my driving ;)

Anyways, I should be available Tuesday, so sign me up, please :)

We need to change my name to Nelson Hamilton Ullinskey :D

I got on the server an hour and a half before qualifying and had plenty of time to perfect my driving line and make setup changes. I felt like I needed to be faster, but when Bob Miley dropped out (which really is too bad :() I was fastest in practice! :thumbsup:

Snatched pole, and managed to lead nine of ten laps en-route to victory :ninja:! Started sixth in the second race and played it safe without doing anything aggressive or dumb. Led all ten laps, but I had a really close call when I spun out :confused:! Joe almost caught me, but I was too fast :sneaky:!

Had a great time, thank you Dennis for organizing. I think if Bob did not leave, he would have made my victories really hard if not unobtainable :cool:. Seeing as I am getting much better at sim racing, I am considering trying out Game Stock Car or possibly Rfactor2 at the end of the year. But do not worry about me possibly forgetting about R07. This place is practically my home at RD :thumbsup:!

@Robert Covey , please add a driver profile using your forum name.

Man, I spent a lot more time on a car than I thought I would have to, since I had one in the garage already. I got enough speed out of it but handling was a bit off in the end, still it was a second faster than the old version!

Race 1: Radek shuffles the cars into T1 and we're good to the barrel turn where David finds room right in front of me to throw his Honda. I don't know how it fit, so close. And then, the spread as cars in front slowly pull away... and the rear view becomes vacant. On L5 David pits and pretty lonely out here. L9 and Radek is close in front of me, on L10 he's off at the barrel turn and bad tires and damage slow him right down.

Race 2: A good start, well until until we get to T6 and I think I can slip to the right of Radek. Not. I waiting several get by, Nelson, David and Radek. My bad. I drive a few sloppy laps after that and get it back together to put a chase on David. An off for David on L7 but he comes back hard. I take him on L8 in the corner he has a tough time with! Ahead, Radek is slooow on the straight ahead and I go by, but he's back at the braking zone and so is David with another attempt to dive inside [ @David Kingshott , you know you're going to hurt someone someday doing that] David doesn't make it and Radek's tires are giving him grief. I head Radek but he gets back one more time as I take a trip through the sand. Tires eventually take their toll on him and he just has to slow.

In the end, much better than I expected but it would have been nicer with more drivers. Thanks to those that made it and to Robert who really was just there to check his wheel and Teamspeak setup :thumbsup:

Back to time trailing for a bit!

I love to spend time learning how to go fast in the BMW also. Unfortunately I haven't been able to unlock all that's needed about driving to keep it up to speed. I'd hate for BMW's to get a bad "rep" so I step away and go back to FWD after a bit :)
