Unrelated to the above - what's a good time around here? Michele mentioned having a WR here in the BRM and I read an old race report about Col just failing to go sub 35. I think he used to drive Honda back then but it wasn't mentioned in the race report. Is pole a 32/33 here in a good car? GPLweekly was down for grazers such as myself.

The higher the value(FF Maximum Force) the (lower) the forces.
Strange how lower the number the wheel gets heavier.
As for times here us the Tailenders Qualy 2.35 to 2.40. Race avg times around
the 2.40 to 2.45
Good luck for the race mate.

When I read Dag's post I thought Kin Ell!! this is going to be a very long day. 2:40 sounds a lot better from my perspective.

In the last week I don't think I've done more than 11 laps without finding something to hit, usually hard enough to loosen up some teeth.

It's important here to use enough ride height in order not to bottom out (think Nürburgring). Also sometimes the outside line is the preferred one <heiterer blick>. And you have to deal with the bumps, basically the bump/transition at the backstraight downhill is the most risky one to overrev the engine, and the big bump before Heiterer Blick before the compression. You have to lift there or you will risk damaging the engine for sure...
It's a hard track, but it has good rhythm and is very fast. Not easy to lay down a clean lap here, let alone finishing the race. It's very important to keep the car on the grey/black stuff...

That's racing but I'm afraid about the repair bill...

Made my only mistake when I did a half spin on exit somewhere. But no harm done. I then put it into auto-pilot and commenced to cruise.
One miscalculation was how much fuel I would need. As the race was winding down I saw that I would run short. I had expecting to get lapped more often. So made a quick stop to fill the tank. I knew this track well enough that even when my mind wandered I was still able to drive safely. And I hope we never come back. Very happy with 6th.

Although I practiced a lot my starts, the unexpected happened. Sorry again.
On lap 2, I crashed avoiding a car that decided to slow down right in front of me while being towed.
To avoid that car I had to brake fast and move aside which caused my crash and ended my race
