While clio's are fun, I'm just not quite feelin it. I'm backing out, sorry, especially since its such a small field :).

Well if people back out that usually means we get a small field. We had amazing racing with just 5 people last week, and we usually get 3 or 4 signups on the day.

Well its good to hear that, I just felt that with how bad I in my opinion humiliated myself in two races this weekend I couldn't do that again. I just can't turn right is all, I can turn left fine though so if we ever do any oval races you can go ahead and count me in by a mile.

Seriously Will, these cars are a WHOLE different matter to Nippons - but I don't need to tell you that. These things are very, very close just by their nature and stupidly easy to drive, especially on 'flat' tracks such as this.

I'll do you a deal - if we don't get 10 signups you can pull out. :p

i'll probably only get 16 laps done in both races, my best lap was a 1:28 and the trick I was pulling to go faster, I can't get it right now. I was tapping the handbreak in T1 and that chicane thing after the hairpen followed by the long back straight. Into them i'd tap the handbrake and it sped me up a nice chunk. Other than that stilll. The thing is that I can't really turn right or turn on a flat track. I liked that there was 2 banked turns at Fuji even though they were two of my worst. For example... yesterday I was on the simcar servers and put up a lap that would have put me 9th of 11 at TPSCC loudan. And I had been on that server maybe 1.5 hours, I just do good at Banked ovals. Maybe we do Cartfactor at one of the ovals up here at RD? I'd come and win that one. But I just am having a bad time with road courses.
i'll come but if I feel I'm too slow in practice I'm not racing. I should have done that in my league race sat, same with the FN race sunday.

Seriously Will, these cars are a WHOLE different matter to Nippons - but I don't need to tell you that.
I do understand that but I'm just not an overall fast consistent or just mediocre racer yet.

Even if you don't do great the first race, the second race is a reverse grid - giving you a chance to run at the front and get a feel for things - I have faith that you will be ok :good:

chances are i'd screw it up, I know I shouldn't bash myself but i'm so slow I'm not even a backmarker. We'd probably have a bigger than usual bottle neck come T1.

We'll it probably would be, OK fine, It'll be odd timing for me since Its just after school gets out but I can make it. I should be on the server about half an hour before the scheduled time.

if you want some help Will, i can join you on the server at 19:00 GMT and you can follow me around and i will drive slow enough for you to keep up then slowly increase the speed. i would also help if you could be on Team Speak :good:

Well two things, I'm not gonna be home at 1900 maybe not even by the time the race starts, last night I remembered I had a prior commitment. Put me down as tenative but now, no promises, I do apoligize. Also Nigel, I have downloaded ts but don't exactly know how to use it or if I installed it correctly. If I can be home by 20:00 which is 3 PM my time, I'll be on the server. Sorry and I hope to see everyone soon.
