    Regarding the Subaru guys;
    Am I the only one who actually practises?
    And who of us are actually racing on Wednesday?

    Also a heads up, there is a maintenance on Tuesday and Wednesday at 12am so we can expect an update but that is not certain however if the recent run of things continues it may just happen

    -------------------Australian GT Series Round 8 Laguna Seca--------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------Race Report--------------------------------------------------------

    Here we are today at Salinas in California USA for round 8 of the Australian GT Series
    And with qualifying done Greasy takes top spot from Nasanu with Flash in 3rd
    With the New division of GT Cup starting at this race Wonder beat Moto
    To claim pole in the Subaru in the lower division
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    As Greasy got the drivers on their way with Nasanu right behind him
    Flash and Lion was side by side coming into Andretti Hairpin
    As Soks held off Dave even going two wide through turn 3
    Sadly Wonder's connection went bad and he got kick from the room
    leaving Moto to race by himself in the lower class
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As the drivers went through turn 6 on to the Rahal Straight Greasy ran he's BMW wide
    Letting Nasanu Flash and Lion By but keeping it off the wall
    As Moto went off at turn 5 but with no one worry about he got on he's way again
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As Greasy caught back up to Lion as Nasanu started to open up a gap to Flash
    Later Lion let Greasy get by him coming to the Corkscrew
    Then a couple of laps after that Flash lost it coming onto the Rahal straight
    As Moto park it up after turn 5 but got going again 2 laps later
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As Greasy started to close the gap to Nasanu in he's Audi
    While Soks was not letting Lion out of his sight
    As Flash got by Dave coming into Rainey curve moving back up to 5th now
    Sadly Moto park it up again but this time calling it a day
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As Nasanu's mirrors started to get full of Greasy in his BMW for several laps
    Nasanu decided to dive into pits for a early stop letting all the drivers get by him
    then several laps later Greasy Lion and Flash all came in for their stops
    As Soks took the lead for the first time today
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As Flash got by Dave again as Dave was trying for a one stop strategy and suffering from tire wear
    Soks dive into pits from the lead and falling back behind Lion in 3rd
    As Greasy started to hunt down Nasanu again
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    As Greasy was all over the back of Nasanu in no time what so ever
    Showing that the BMW was far more superior in to corners over the Audi
    But with the power advantage the Audi had Nasanu could breakaway from Greasy down the straights
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    All of a sudden Nasanu lost he's Audi coming out of Andretti Hairpin
    And with no were to go Greasy went straight up the back of him
    As Nasanu got back on to the track and resulting in both drivers taking damage
    As both Nasanu and Greasy pitted Lion and Flash got by to take the lead from they
    As both Nasanu and Greasy exit pits Soks manage split the two for now
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Until Greasy Got by Soks an Lap Later moving him back up to 4th now
    As Soks was trying to keep up with Greasy he lost it coming around turn 5
    while several laps later Nasanu change his strategy coming into pits again
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As Flash dive into he's pit box as schedule letting Greasy by him
    Lion would do the same only a lap later giving Greasy the lead
    As he too would need to stop again and soon
    Giving Lion and Flash back their position
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    With Greasy now on fresh tires he caught back up to Flash in no time what so ever
    But Flash wasn't Making it easy for Greasy to pass him driving defensiveness
    Until Flash lost it coming out of turn 4 and getting damage from incident
    Much to Greasy's relief now he could set his sights on catching back up to Lion
    As Dave's day went from bad to worse having several off during the race
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    As Lion made his last pit stop for the race as Greasy go by to takes the lead
    to only pit himself couple of laps later giving back the lead to Lion
    With only 13mins left to run Greasy begin to hunt down Lion
    Needed to close the gap down by over a second a lap being 13sec behind
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As Greasy started to close the gap to Lion posting some really fast lap times
    As even Lion could feel Greasy breathing down his neck with minutes to spare
    while Dave was doing a little bit of grounds keeping around the track
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    With only a lap to run to the chequered flag
    Lion needing to start driving defensively
    And almost losing it coming out of Andretti Hairpin
    As Greasy keep it right on Lion's tail
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    As Lion takes the chequered flag with Greasy right behind him
    Only 0.503 of a second off making it the closest race So far this season
    And Flash coming in 3rd 25 second of the leads
    [​IMG]
    Congratulation to Lion on a well deserve victory and race
    Well done to Greasy for posting the fastest lap time of the day at a time of 1:18.292
    Good work to all the Drivers for fun and exciting race

    Looking at it, we'll have to start at least 15-30mins earlier just to be safe!
    Also, I'm not going to race tomorrow unless two of the Subaru guys actually race. I don't want to be racing one person again...

    If it gets in the way to much I will just postpone it 1 week if thats ok with everyone?

    might be worth tuning your vette mate, Steve has pulled out and I haven't heard from Cobra for a while,

    Well as this series closes in on it's final round, I've been doing alot of testing for a new series I'm looking to start. Not alot is guaranteed yet but by next week I should have everything finished up so I can at least give anyone interested an idea on what's gonna happen. I'm aiming to make the competition close and fair for both DS3 and wheel users.

    I'm not gonna bother asking for the GT Challenge points mainly because I'm the only one who has accumalated points, sadly.

    has anyone tuned for Apricot hill yet?

    I ask because Bathurst has proven stability now, and as we had to abandon it earlier this season id rather switch it for apricot hill
