It was a good race SoCal! You saved your tires well. My 3 stopper might have paid off if I hadn't run into pit wall on last stop. Great race though. Sorry I won't be there next week. Looks like Flip will take the points lead then.

Few things for tonight's race at Monza.

First, I may have to drop out early on this one (hopefully, I don't). Because of this, I would like to start proceedings 5 mins. earlier than normal. So please try to make it on time.
And secondly, there may be a chance of rain. Make sure you have rain tires ready. Just in case. :D

See you guys tonight!

Flip, is it still possibly raining at Monza?

Possible: Yes. Guarantee: No.
I will set weather to change, and the game will do whatever it wants after that. Most I can say is that it will start dry.

had a chance to review the race last night and first think congrats to Flip for the win. my apologies to Insane for the contact which it seemed i got the worst of. at least i don't feel as bad due to Insane being low on fuel and having to make a second pit stop. and i guess my first tank slapper at the same corner should have given me damage so its a wash. that said i'm more pissed at my self for letting the win slip out of my grasp. with plenty of fuel and a pace decent enough all i had to do was be patient!!!! :banghead:

anyway always a pleasure with this group!!! On to Red Bull where i will be trying to redeem myself. :gtpflag:

sorry about the early exit, but I got bored running around the track all by myself, and did not feel like doing it for another 30 mins.

Yeah, I was amazed you didn't have damage on the first off you had. I braked too late at that same corner halfway through and destroyed my car. Lost 30 seconds getting back to the pits. It was a great race for all though--very close on the pace for all the drivers!

i'll have to watch it again. i'm not that quick so i need to hit my braking points spot on and i think in your draft at that turn i had too much speed. both times in that corner i had to try and avoid you with really no where to go. all good lets do it again at the Ring!!

Sorry fellas, but won't be there tonight. I practiced for 3 hours last night for this race, so needless to say I'm a little disappointed. Hope it's a good race. I'm planning to be there next week for the final race.

congrats to Scorp and Flip for the wins. not my best performance and sorry Flip for running into you race 1. there was so much smoke I could not see anything and just hoped that you had moved out of the way. Race 2 had decent pace but my long run stability was just not there. Also to be honest kinda boring with just a few participants. well one last event and maybe I can pull of the trifecta of oval type tracks!! :dopey:

Points after Round 7



I do have to say that was the closest race I've ever been a part of while hosting these. Scorpion and I were no further apart than about 3 seconds for the better part of an hour. Really epic stuff! And for two weeks in a row, I almost didn't put in enough fuel at the stop and ran the last lap on fumes...

Season finale this week! High Speed Ring, one race, no success ballast.
Laps: TBA very soon.
See you guys tomorrow for practice!
