    I can't, I'll be hosting my own race at the same time. Thought it was Sunday, sorry. Hopefully there will be another one and I can get in on that one. Good luck!

    I may be able to do a highlights vid.

    Maybe @Tom can do a commentary overlay of the videos. :)

    He has is own radio show, you think? :lol:

    Granted I'd need to shoot off screen with an ipad, and only have Movie Maker... :( But according to 100 subscribers, I guess I've done something right! :)

    Who will do what?

    Sounds like ameer can do a full race, I'm capable of a highlights video.

    Sounds like @Tom may be able to voice over the vids if needed. :tup:

    Matheus, what could you do? :)

    Some editing probably. The four of us can do commentary, as if we're watching the race live. We set up a Skype call, and do it together.

    Well no.

    Don't have skype, don't have a mic, and Tom has already told me there is a tight schedule.

    Everybody who hasn't already, please get some practice in. If you have no time to do so before the race, i will open up the race room at 1:00pm CST Race day for a 30 minute final practice before the 8 minute qualifier.

    Got a 20 lap run in earlier today in a private online lobby (I like to practise in the same environment that the race will be held, rather than free run etc..).

    Best time was a 1.26:2xx, average 'safe' laps were mid to high 27s.

    After 20 laps I had only used a 1/4 tank of fuel with fuel/tyre usage on normal.

    Front tyres read 9-8, rears 10-10.

    Apart from the 1 compulsory pit stop it could be done without stopping, although I wouldn't trust my ability on worn tyres!

    Best time for me was an (IIRC) 1'27.8xx. I haven't put enough time into this yet, though.

    It's actually better to practice online, on free run your laps are about 2 seconds faster. And I'm still on high 27s, I need a lot more practice.
