    I was really enjoying the racing until I spun to the inside where the track cuts back on itself. I just clipped the barrier but fell through the center of the earth and landed back in the pits. I had a 1:30 tow and 1:45 repairs so binned it.

    Yeah Peter, was fun chasing you early on, was looking forward to that battle going on till the checkers!

    I was about a half second off from being able to run with the front 7-8, was lucky to qualify 6th. At the start I knew where I would end up so I didn't battle that hard early trying to save the tires and get a rhythm. After some argy-bargy stuff going on ahead of me, I moved into a battle with Larry for a bit, but again I just didn't have the speed to keep consistent pressure on him and he pulled away. Late, Kris was battling for the lead and found himself back with me, and we dueled the last lap for 6th with a door to door through the hairpin and I had the better line on exit and was able to sneak across for 6th.

    These cars get to be a handful late in the run, should be something to see these things fly through T1 at Brands Hatch in two weeks!!

    So get your calendars cleared....THE REGULAR SEASON IS NOW IN FULL-SWING!!!


    A big thanks to everyone who came out tonight, and remember, there's plenty of guys on the server for practice the night before the race, and that's a great time to get together and learn how to push these things to the limit (and sometimes a little past it!)....this is as much a development program for racecraft, and everyone regardless of iRating and experience is learning something new every time they get in these cars. Ask questions, share info, it all makes for a better place for all of us to race!!

    What a race! Today was crap, with me volunteering to go into our downtown DC office for some meetings. I do not miss driving down there at all. What a nightmare! That really gummed up the works, and I barely made it for qualifying.

    That said, new guy Tyler and I had a massive ball of fun trading places during that race, and somehow not killing each other. I am not sure how we managed to do that, other than being respectful, which is what you get in a league format. Overall, I was only a touch faster than Tyler, but he really had some great moves to keep me from getting a run. AND, we had some seriously close code browns during passing situations where we somehow didn't kill each other and did not even have any contact! Highlights of our race together provided below, including my last lap hairpin okey-doke after letting Tyler catch back up after what I thought was a too aggressive pass into T10.

    I really hate to hear that John. Is there anything I can do to change your mind?

    These cars want to be driven hard, jumping over kerbs, and braking is inconsistent which I assume has to do with brake cooling. But they are a hoot, and you can bounce off each other door to door.

    Nose to rear bumper is another story, saw a few too many of those last night!!

    The door on door running at the beginning was fun for sure. But just thought I'd try them. I did. Need to concentrate on that dam Ferrari this season. Dumping all the funding and effort into that series.

    Had a blast last night! These cars are so much fun. I had too many battles to count last night. At the start I know Peter and I were having a great race until his accident. Humberto made his way past us and to the front group. I think I was sitting around 6th place when some action happened up front allowing me to settle in behind JT in 4th about 2 seconds off the two lead cars. We eventually made our way there and had an amazing 4 or 5 car battle for the lead. Angel was catching us and unfortunately got into me entering the hairpin. I think the group was slowed down a little more than he expected. Got it back going and got to have a nice little two lap race with Tim. I covered the inside into the hairpin but just couldn't quite get the power down out of the corner and he got me by a nose over the finish!

    I encourage everyone to come out to the next one of these races. The racing is close, intense, and like Tim said, I think it really helps develop your racecraft, especially in traffic. Hope to see you all out at the next one!

    I have to say, that I was not overly excited about running the MX-5 as the alternative series when I first heard about it, however, I have been given it a fair shot mostly out of giving thanks back to Tim for picking up where I left off with the race series. I have enjoyed the close racing in these cars much more than I expected and Have had a lot of fun in each of the two pre-season races. Good Times and a lot more fun than you would ever expect to have in the MX-5! Come join us guys!
