Eric Dennis and I both showed up for this event.
It is a great fun and difficult track.
My best for the day was a 1:34.2 that surely could have been bested by several club drivers.
Eric was working with an Xbox controller as his wheel had failed on him.

R1: I took the lead and tried to keep Eric close behind. He always had me worried as he didn't take to the track much for practice or the Q and I didn't know his pace. Nice that I have a good rear view botton on my wheel, the mirrors on these cars are useless. Distorted blobs show on both of mine and I can't tell where a car is at all. Several times I thought that Eric had to be sandbagging as all of a sudden his pace would quicked, to the point I was going to the max to stay ahead! But I kept my place.

R:2 Eric took the lead off the line and held it for two laps. After going wide in T1 he relinguished it and for this race I decided to drive the way I had been practicing. Strange, I was driving OK and lap times were dropping fairly nicely but Eric remained the same distance behind, hmmmm:confused:. I pressed an opened a gap. At some point Eric disappeared, not even in the pit, maybe disconnected?

Well, I used practice to get used to the car and to get reaquainted with this nice track. It's been a staple of the F1 sim world and a while since I've been on it.
These would go nicely at Limerock Mountain.

Thanks RD, Eric and Eric!
