Hey mate - what’s the ruling on the exit of Turn 4?I think 2:03's will be competitive pace with fastest laps in the low 2:02's. As for the chicane, it can be attacked aggressively in regards to approach. It can be straightened out, but be sure to keep at least the 2 outside wheels on the curbing at all times.
So this was brought up here. And addressed also in voice chat before the race. And I know everyone here is fairly comfortable racing each other...fight club and all...but I personally witnessed several (more than just a few) instances of running wide on this turn.Hey mate - what’s the ruling on the exit of Turn 4?
Can we go as wide as we like, or are we trying to keep within some kinda limit?
Very well stated Ice, and thanks for bringing it onto everyone's radar.So this was brought up here. And addressed also in voice chat before the race.

I PM'd Nova about it who basically said we are peer governed so file it if it you want, give lap numbers, times etc and he'll look at it.
Well being new to these two series last year, I had a period where I was trying to "get acquainted" with the type and style of driving here. And I was probably labeled a trouble maker or complainer by some. Which is fine. I'm 52yrs old, couple of kids...no big deal. So to that end I decided to just shut up and drive.
And I will continue to do that. But I wanted to point out that many of us try to drive inbounds at all times. Some try to push the limits of the track as much as will allow and some just drive wherever there is pavement (and beyond). And those that try to stay well inbounds have to take specific lines in order to do so. And it is frustrating to watch others use lines that take them OOB in some corners (not maliciously or it would have been every single lap). You know, the whole fairness thing and all.
But instead of filing, because, well, you know...I'm not going to be that A Hole who rocks an apparently quite sea worthy boat, I am just mentioning it here in the hopes that it at least "brings awareness" to the subject. Because first rule of fight club and all that...
Nice job sir, and thanks for the pics.
Apologies for dipping out on you guys after R1. My head to be honest was focused towards another event that was the next day, but seeing I was a last minute add in my head just wasn't there despite the result. I guess you could say I wanted to be fresh for the event on Saturday. But great pace @MrDonovan . I drove the M4 last year and if you get it right it's a rocketship which you clearly showed.
If anyone is interested in this mystery series on Saturdays here it is. I'm the first race. btw you all have to do the drinking game if you watch this. Everytime he says "line a stern" you have to take a sip or a shot 😂 😂 😂 😂 . You'll see what I mean
