    Nice pics!

    I have now finished reviewing all this week's incidents. We have a few remaining incidents I would like to try to get to 100% views (5 steward reviews per inquiry) - more eyes are better.

    Just stumbled across this - a sinkhole at the national corvette museum swallowed 8 cars. Some video at this site also.

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/12/us/national-corvette-museum-cars-fall/

    Tried a quick lap on Panorama with the DS3 before wife kicked me off the PS3 - that car seems like a pretty cool match for that track! I can envision some great racing - with a bit of judicious caution on the mountain areas.

    BTW, remember to install Sport Hard tires on your Alpine before you start practicing!

    Street Cars below 450 PP -> Sports Hards

    I heard that corvette museum sinkhole thing this morning on the radio... heartbroken...
    The radio host was telling it like someone had died, he was devastated. I wonder what's causing this phenomena that apparently has been happening quite often, especially in the US.

    I was out there last year for work. The corvette museum is in Bowling Green Kentucky, right on top of the largest network of caves in the US, including Mammoth Cave. It was just a matter of time.

    All those cars will probably help bring more people to visit the cave! ;)

    Yeah... The Elise/Fuji combo leads to really "close" racing but it's mostly about who can catch the draft and avoid bouncing the limiter and not necessarily driving skill. Also, bump drafting is not allowed, right?

    Can we make a rule that cars can not bounce of the rev limiter in order to be chosen?

    I'm %99.9 sure bump drafting on straights is allowed.

    Maybe. I was just thinking of this rule:
    Also I think it might be useful to remind people that they cannot weave back and forth on the straights to disrupt a pass (and also would apply to disrupting draft opportunity, right?)

    Yeah, we're running the '96 Corvette at Laguna Seca, the '56 Beetle at Daytona Superspeeday, and the 1902 Shoe at Rainbow Road.

    That's right, and we're allowing tuning, but only to allow full custom suspension, which you have to lower all the way down.
