    Hey hey peoples,
    Did a full-race-distance practice this evening. Fuel absolutely no issue, & tyres held up well too.

    After a few practice stints I’m finally getting into consistent 1:25s, but geez it took some work.
    1:24s seem possible but optimistic at this stage. (fastest was 1:25.3)

    Btw - is it just me, or is this beast more of a handful at Laguna Seca than usual?
    If anyone has some magic tuning tips, I’m all ears...
    :cheers:

    Based on lap data from Season 1, 1:25's were good laps. Fastest lap posted was a 1:24.6 by @Roman_GT23 with most of the field falling into the low-mid 1:25's. I'm hoping that some of the junk in Roman's "trunk" might slow him a little bit. We'll find out Friday. :cheers:

    Not going to make it. Son's HS Lacrosse team has advanced to the Regional Semi final game this Friday where they likely will get destroyed...but dad must attend to support ;)

    Finally had a chance to put in some laps today...best so far with 1% of weight added and rh tires is a 1:25.5. Still room for better, especially while under chase.

    Sounds like it’ll be an interesting round. This is one of my favourite tracks, as long as I keep clear of the sausages...

    I’ve watched a bit of last year’s race broadcasts - geez it was a bloodbath! And full marks Nova for the overtake attempt around the outside at the corkscrew :p

    Roman’s pace on RH tyres was unbelievable, it’s going to take a lot to prevent him running away with it again.
    Bring it on boys!
    Let’s see if the Aussie can beat you to the checkered flag at your home race
    :cheers:

    Looking like we might have a light field Friday if our tentative drivers cannot make it...surprising for a Laguna Seca event.
    Were sitting at 10 drivers confirmed attending, 2 tentative/last minute decisions, and 2 Reserves tentative/last minute.

    Still holding out hope @Harry Rowley and @MikeGrove can make it, and at least 2 of our tentative.

    Pre Race briefing will be out tomorrow.
