    D6 wrapped up - a couple of Disco's (2?), but nice all in all.

    Note to self - on weeks that are too busy to get any practice in... I will stink like leftover lutefisk on limburger. :scared:

    D6 Results and votes are in.

    I love the Vette at Silverstone.
    To me it feels like a race car should...White knuckle edge of control racing!!!
    I think it teaches you car control and how to drive smooth...Hope it sticks around.

    Also had a blast racing my D7 mates tonight, even with sound issues. Cheers everyone :cheers:

    I respectfully didn't observe 'control' or any 'love' and found it was related (for me) to a lack of practice.

    No practice, no love.

    Same for me handlebar. The Vette combo was given the least amount of attention before racing tonight, and I wish it had been the opposite. I was much more comfortable with it in race 2. I did start to appreciate it a bit more, and respected the fact that it's a handful, but it still wanted to bite my head off!

    The Vette was no fun for me coming into it cold. It's not a pick up and go fast type of car for me. I'll be better next week as I now have 15 laps with it and that is all I foresee myself having with it by next week.

    Well my first night back and well,

    It went well, I got a podium thanks to @Wolfsatz yanking his wheel off it's mount with two laps to go! :p
    I believe I finished 6th overall and that is OK!

    Great racing D5 see y'all soon! :cheers:

    Combo 3 was the best combo of the night for me, even with little practice.

    There are times that things look pretty bad. Last week was one of those nights. It was also a pretty sad week. Tonight was a real test. The D6 gang pulled off a textbook SNAIL night. Everyone remembered and learned from the mistakes we made last week and made tonight's racing more than just fun. It restores the faith in why we are all still here. Tonight's keynote word for me is respect. It appeared to be flowing quite freely tonight. There will always be an occasional grazing here and there but D6 was on their game tonight. Thank you all and very nice work on the track. Thanks H.B. for covering host and scores.

    9.1 points separating 1st through 8th.

    4.1 points separating 1st through 5th.

    8 of 13 found the podium.

    Pretty damn cool...

    Amazing how one thinks compared to others. LOL. I absolutely abhor combo 2 but I have to put up with either the car or track AGAIN next week. LOL. I thought R1 & R2 promoted the best racing. Room to pass, you can catch up if you fall off a bit, and the cars are good. R3 is congested and passing occurs only when a mistake is made.
    Oh well.... I will do my best regardless; even when I dislike the car, track, or both. LOL
    This is a great league, regardless, because of the on track respect once a group gels together.

    Done. Should be getting an email and it should show up in your google drive shared with me folder, or whatever it's being called these days.

    D2 replays uploaded.

    G'night all.

    Forgot to mention, due to the efficiency and timeliness of all scorekeepers :cheers: and get those $hells claimed folks, the scoring sheets have been copied to the Results doc. Data Specialists are cleared to enter timing data. If anyone has any questions or issues, please let me know. We'll get something worked out.

    WORST NIGHT EVER.
    We were plagued with problems in D8. Too many of us had a few races with no sound.
    The guy leading our division in points @jamilla, was destroyed by them. Too bad! He was on a roll and could have done much better tonight.
    Some people are talking about not racing again till they fix the problem.

    Sounds like I missed a good night racing! I'm about to head for the hospital to double-dip on a spinal fusion surgery; not sure when I'll be back on the track.
