So we're back to Infineon on Monday? Not sure how the Golf will perform, but I suspect Blade and the R5 Turbos will be disapearing into the distance again....

Infineon should be a handling track, so I'd expect to see the "cornering"-biased cars (including, I really hope, the DeLorean :-)) doing well.

Last season's winners were Dudley in a CSL and McSpeed in a 240z. Badger got a couple of 3rd places in the USS Chevy Nova, though, so a well-driven big car can get a result.

I think the RS1800 might be very competitive at Infineon too.

I'll hopefully be there, just to make up numbers though :) (doesn't mean I'll back out of a race if I end up being competetive)

Doh...

You missed some good racing - had an awesome fight with Balham in race 1 for about 3 laps, and was closing on the battling lead duo of Bladerunner and Meatball when sadly Bladerunner lagged out and Meatball was able to focus on some fast laps to take the win...

Second race I managed to sneak into the lead and hold it despite almost spinning at the fast final chicane about halfway through - really chuffed to take a win in this class, because the Merc might have given an advantage in Touring Cars, but the Golf was only likely to challenge at this track all season...

* penalised for car change.

So, Blade's DNF eats into his lead, but he's still 16 points clear. theoretically anyone down as far as 5th coud take it, but in reality it's probably just a 3-way fight. 6-7-8th is closing up pretty tight now.

I'm quite happy with the pace of the Coke-Dealer-Special - 4th is my best result by 3 clear places. Feel I could have done even better with more practice (my in-race lap times were way ahead of my qually times). I've treated the car to a new paint job for the season finale in a fortnight. some really good battles with Pjeedai and Balham in race 1.

I'm expecting the final race at Maple short to also favour the "handling" cars, as so much of the lap is spent in that long, long first turn.

to be fair, for a little while the thread did say the 10th but I think RFT changed it early last week(?)

I'm really regretting my shocking start to the season now - I doubt Bladerunner is going to have more hardware disasters, and I think he's probably had his fair share now!

Yeah I feel that I am due for a no issue race for a change. It has either been a steering wheel fail or a disconect that has taken away my first place now 3 times. So yeah I am feeling like I have a break coming my way.

What router are you using?

Here's a guide what I done wrote after I had a lot of disconnection problems - in the end it was buying a new Netgear router which cured it all for good *touches wood*

Due to the fact that I am on fiber optic I can not change my router however that is the first time I have ever lost conection during a game in over two years so I am not that upset about it. Things just happen. Oh well.

I'm on fibre obtic. You should still be able to access your routers admin page and alter ports etc the alternative is to contact your isp and try and blag a new one on the off chance that something is wrong with your current one.

Any chance you need Bladerunner and Meatball to come and help you? It's about the only chance I've realistically got for this one... So annoyed that I made such a hash of the first meeting, as mid-table would have put me right up there after Bladerunner's technical disasters...

So, it all comes to an end tonight.

Two 20-lap races of Maple Valley Short will settle matters.

Here's the DeLorean's new paintjob...

Looking good.

Is it just carrying on as normal tonight or is there random / reversed grids?

Because the championship is still pretty close, it'll be the normal format.

See you there. I might use something from the club garage tonight, my wee Stratos doesn't quite cut the mustard.
