That was a quite the entertaining race, at least measured by the 15 mental minutes it took to complete. After the start I was scrapping with Dag, but as the car came up to temperature I got more and more exit push. In the process of battling the car and Dag I got the rear unstuck coming of the final turn sideswiped the Eagle and spun letting DJ through who then promptly spun on its own in T1. Not sure if this was unrelated or not, I just hope our small contact didn't damaged the Eagle too much. Got my place back immediately, but still had to content with the car not getting off corners well. Especially the final corner cost me a lot of time. What would final loose me my place to Dag was the exit of T1 though as I clipped the end of the armco and spun.After getting my bearings again I set off again and seemed to catch the Eagle slowly again. As Rob past me for the first time and I had a chance to spot some lines following him which turned my pace around. I managed to close on Dag even faster and finally got by with the help of a faster Lotus. From there on it was just hitting my marks and getting the car home, since the Eagles behaviour seemed to be getting worse as the race progressed. Interesting to see our two setups working the opposite way.Well done to all remarkably clean race.

Arghh...I did start the race in the wrong lane just noticed in replay! I did wonder why Greg stayed on the inside, but in my mind the Pole was inside. I got confused since yesterday Pole was inside, and today it was outside. Really sorry, wasn't intentional to gain an advantage or so...

Race report later. Great job all!

We could just amend the rolling start procedure that the pole sitter has the right to choose the lane.And while we are at it what did the back of the grid think of the pace lap? You guys were at the end of the string so everything that is wrong at the front gets amplified.

BTW I suggest lowering the pacespeed to about 125kmh (close to 80mph), because 100mph is too close to the normal racespeed midcorner. Also lower pacespeed helps on slower ovals keeping the pack tighter. Also the Polesitter has to gradually accelerate and

I'm with Rob here, I even suggested going to 60MPH earlier in the week. Better slower then faster, so that the grid has enough time to form behind the leader. We dont want the back rows arriving at speed and having to slam on the brakes when getting there. The grid should be formed going into the final turn imo.

The rolling start is sounding more and more complex to me.

It's easy once you run through it once or twice. All you got to do is keep position to the car ahead of you. Jump on the server tomorrow prerace we are sure to do a practice start.

As for the standing start, keep in mind that we are trying to launch highly asymmetric cars. Having them rolling already helps a lot I find.

Is this a quote of a post from SRMZ or do you have access to the DB?
