Ok, let´s do it next Monday. My PC showed the blue screen again last Sunday so it´s again being repaired, with chances I will need to install Windows 7 and all the software. Argh... :(

Bad news. I won´t get the new graphics card installed before next Tuesday, with luck. So unfortunately we will need to postpone this race again one week :(
My apologies guys :(

In an underdeveloped country, to buy a new graphics card (GX 760) is not that easy since imports are severely restricted. I will get my PC up and running this next Monday, but they had to reinstall Windows7 because old installation was not ok. This means I will need to install all the software, so I am afraid we´ll have to postpone the last race one more week. :(
My deepest apologies :(

And a 10-place grid penalty is assessed to Arturo for that swap-out.

:)

At least, that's how they do things nowadays.

I should be good to go when you're ready, Art!

Aren't three fans a violation of CART downforce rules?

Not sure if 3 fans will help, but 3 turbos will do the trick for sure ;)

PC with new graphics card and some other minor improvements is at home now. I have installed basic software (Win7, MSOffice, PDF reader and 7z). Tomorrow I will start with the installation of what matters: GPL and rFactor :)

Wish me luck, but I think we will be ready to go next Monday :)

Terry is not in Buenos Aires today so he is not going to make it tonight. Anyway, he told me to go on with the race anyway.

Personally I'd like to see everyone racing in the finale.  That said, I'm not available next Monday.  But, an August 11th smackdown would work for me.

Artie...

Just had a look at the lead post in the thread.  It seems like it may have been copied over from our Pocono run without editing.

Please confirm that we are running with the SuperSpeedway wingset?

Hi Donnie :)

Last time we raced at Michigan, we used the Superspeedway configuration.

Btw, race is confirmed for next Monday, August 11th due to the fact that Lee could not make it last Sunday.

I hope this is the last race of the season so we can start planning next one :)
