    Have ever noticed how good McLaren Orange looks on a Ferrari?

    Nice group of cars Mike, OH MY GOD!! I am have to re-think choice of tires from our testing, looking at some of your cars :scared::scared::scared:


    I hope so Joe, have a feeling it's going to be a fun-packed night. One make, two car head to head, Kart, wouldn't be a fun night without a surprise race or two in there.

    I was thinking of a 3 group race N100, N200, N300 going at a staggered start. Race your group and try to catch the group in front. but it was hard to sort on my own.

    I agree, that Kart race was insanely good fun. Would be awesome with a full grid :tup:

    So I have come up with another Cat and Mouse session plus some supporting races. This time between the Gr.4 Corvette and Gr.3 Corvette.
    Both cars will run Racing Hard Tyres and the room will be split as evenly as possible between Mice (Gr.4) and Cats (Gr.3)

    The Gr.4's will leave at the light, The Gr.3's will leave 25 seconds later and they have 2 laps to catch/overtake the mice

    Venue: Saint Croix - C for races 1 through 6

    Race 1 (2 laps) - Cat and Mouse Gr.4/Gr.3 Corvette on Racing Hard (No mods allowed on either car)

    Race 2 (2 laps) - TVR Tuscan on Sports Medium (no modifications)

    Race 3 (2 laps) - Cat and Mouse Those who were cats in race 1 now become mice and vice versa

    Race 4 (2 laps) - Any N200 Road car on Sports Hard (no modifications and BOP will apply)

    Race 5 (2 laps ) - Cat and Mouse (roll reversal from race 3)

    Race 6 (5 laps) - Feature race which will be in Gr.1 Group C cars with no modifications on Racing Medium and BOP will apply

    Race 7 - Will be chosen by the winner of race 6 and can be any car/any venue

    That should take up a fair chunk of the evening but there should be time for other races including some Karting if you want


    Don't know when we'll do this as I don't know what else is in the pipeline, maybe Phillip or Larry can advise?

    I'm not here from the 3Rd I don't know as yet about the 10th on our return.

    Larry I've been looking at Gr2 and Grb Grx as it happens for next week but I would sooner leave them for Mike's event.

    If you have anything that would be good, we still have 27laps in the f1500 red bull 3 tires no refueling
    Autopillis Porsche cayman
    Viper big willow

    Still a few combos in the list.

    That made me smile at 6:00 this morning Larry.

    If Mike is ready dependent on numbers, think you need numbers for cat/mouse to work well.

    If numbers are low we can Porsche cayman and Grb plus a members pick night.

    I can be ready to run this and will also be happy to defer if numbers are down as I agree, this one needs a reasonable number of attendees :tup:

    Here we go back to the fun at TFN, just how it should be.

    [​IMG]

    Some found Jamie's Beetle colour a total distraction

    [​IMG]

    Mike got the memo to late in the day,
    But as a Gent he is, he gave us half a lap head start.

    [​IMG]

    Shhhh don't disillusion Larry he thinks this is a Mclaren

    [​IMG]

    Well I never thought a Beetle could get close to a wheelie, have you seen them off the line.

    [​IMG]

    Completing this line up is Patrick Mcgoohan Number 6

    upload_2019-9-21_12-52-18.jpeg
    if you didn't know the line is , I'm not a number, I'm a free man

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Took my eye off the ball, watching Larry and his fetish with the pit sign

    [​IMG]

    Mike was soon back into it.

    [​IMG]

    Turn away goddamit, they all need medical attention at TFN

    [​IMG]

    No don't look back, just keep climbing.

    Next.

    [​IMG]

    Smoke testing, we are environmentally friendly at TFN

    [​IMG]

    Looks even more shocking.

    [​IMG]

    Jamie threading the needle.

    [​IMG]

    No room for error in the chicane with this big boy.

    [​IMG]

    Wouldn't be TFN without a bit of this

    [​IMG]

    And a bit of this, don't know if I was trying to fly or save on tire wear.

    [​IMG]

    Anyone seen this Wookie.

    [​IMG]

    Mario looks happy, maybe he's found the Wookie.

    Last couple

    [​IMG]

    Full Boost and full draft this is going to make you smile and you can take that to the bank.
    [​IMG]

    So we did deposited 5 Karts in the bank

    [​IMG]

    And the victory goes to Super Mario.​
