First of all, congrats to the winner!

I was fighting a horribly loose car throughout practice and race, so, sorry for all the times I got in some guys' way, but I did my best to let you by.

If anyone would be kind enough to share a setup or two that I can try out prior to the next race it would be greatly appreciated. This was my first V8 race and I can see that it can be a lot of fun once the equipment is working right!

Thanks all.

Bob

Well done to all podiums.
Enjoyed this race was hoping for a bigger grid but had plenty of action throughout kept the car on track 99% of the time so was happy with a 8th a bit more practice and could have moved up a few places.
see you at the next race
