yeah John, parked it at pits. Had lil aerodamage
and after that pace dropped a bit. Tried
still for a while but it was pointless.
Too bad, we were having a good one but got
a bit drunk in process :P

Changing the venue did it for me, if you remember the pre-race chat, I had mentioned that "dune buggies" were better over the bumps. I was talking about the two right-hander at the top of the hill. Half an hour before the race, I was still practicing on the NASCAR track.

I had a bad start, ken pass me.
Then i tried to retake position, we had a good fight for several laps.
I knew im faster than him in sector 1 and corners entry, but there's now way to pass in there and he run like rocket in straight.
I realy much enjoy the fight, till i spun.
I tried to catch him again till i saw him lossing his tire crasing the wall.
After that my race was flat as i cant catch marcos and he was too far away.

Congarts for all winners.

Gilles, I'm sorry I had to change, but at that same point on track (where you go over the hump) there is a cut track penalty bug. Practising a off line race I noticed it.

But it was changed on tuesday. So I thought it was in time and I did post about it in pre-race.

Don't feel bad John, the error is entirely mine, I had installed the first track and just practiced like crazy as I could not keep it together over the 2 right hander at the to of the hill (2 & 3a).

I remember reading your post before but only got to practicing a few days after... it didn't register. I continued on the Sonoma track.

I ran once here in F1'78 , I remembered the layout but I was finding my brake points as I was racing.

On the impressive side, I managed to qualify 4th in class. I then thought I could do it... but a few laps in, I messed up the entry to corner 8th and bounced off. Down hill from there.

Next!
