I've just finished my stint. Ten cars started, nine are still in the race. We're seventh. About midway through my stint one car spun me out and I hit the wall. I got some damage. But while I was looking in my f2 view to see who it was (pretty sure it was SFH #16) I went wide coming out of the last turn and hit the tires. I went into the pits to fix the damage, but we lost some 10 mph off the top speed. Probably a good idea to lower gear settings in your setups, especially 5th gear.

I just learned on Wosec forum that they stopped the race after 6th hour. That's why all cars disco'ed.
I was running really well considering damaged engine. After I took over from Syd I was in the 53's, but then after my first stop the car became faster, it was a long stop and appearantly mechanics fixed some damage. I was doing regular 1.50-51 after that, and I made no mistakes through out my stint. :clap:

I don't know our place at the end but I lost 1 lap to the leaders at most. Congrats everyone for the race, great job!

Where can I find race results of wosec races? I suppose it shouldn't be dificult to post them. :huh:
I saw that Kieron's hillcrest were among the entries but they haven't showed up. Overall ,small field(10), I think that's why they shortened the race.

Yeah we planned to race and enter one car seeing as it was a long one. I wasn't available for the start as I've started riding with the local Mountain Biking club, but I was going to do the last 3 hour stint when I was back.

But before the race a driver failed to show for some reason, so the other lads decided they didn't want to do 9 hours between them so they didn't start. Which is fair enough :D

Grats on finishing Guys  :beerchug:

Nice going guys!   :clap:

There's 2 more races scheduled before Le Mans on November 25: Brands Hatch and Riverside.  Hopefully the turnout will be better.   :blink:

To be honest Syd, I've never seen a proper points Standing table. The last one I saw I think one of the SFH Guys did it, and I think that was after the 2nd race :s.
