    I actually managed to get a 1:24:7 on my 2nd lap with the Zonda LM (with original specs: 609bhp - 1300kg - 600pp) in an open lobby at Indianopolis. I'm kind of surprised of my result because there are guys like Mini Stiggy, Caine, Nin-Chin as well as some other people that are unbelievably fast and have very good setups.

    Just to let you guys know, my wife was admitted to hospital today. She has been ill all week and took a turn for the worse today. It's nothing major, so no real drama, but hence why I've been a little distant the last few days. Hopefully its only a 1 night stay for her. Either way, I don't have the energy to post results and drivers brief for Indy tonight. It WILL be posted by tomorrow night. In the mean time, the current registered drivers can confirm their attendance on the form: here.

    Round 2 -- Suzuka -- Results and Race Report
    First of all I want to say well done to everyone who attended. There were far fewer incidents this race, and only 4 pit infringements from both lobbies, so excellent job guys! There was a bit of a hoo-haa with the weather, but we won't go into that. Good job everyone and keep it up at Indy!

    Qualifying

    Once again, qualifying saw some close gaps between drivers up and down the grid, and due to weather conditions, AM pole was actually faster than PRO! Congratulations to @rclark83 and @MatheusBond for taking pole in their respective classes, and the bonus point to go with it.

    The full list of qualifying results can be found here.

    Forgot to say this earlier. I got two people on my blacklist.

    @redbullrider20, for death threats to my car.
    @adam46, for snarky remarks about my accent and hosting.

    Well it turns out your Corvette was already taken care of by Race Control. It's off of my destroy list, but please be cautious of who you toy with on the racetrack.

    Been getting faster every race. ;) I think I've improved a ton in WEC this year, all of this GT racing is just supplementary. :dopey:
