@Erti147 I'm not going to be here as we've a meeting about a charity cycle ride we're organising via our club, so unless it is cancelled then I'll be absent tonight.

A petty to see so many drop outs tonight. :/ I was looking forward to come back to Neil for our last season's duel here.

But that's life I guess.

If there are spaces available for the next 4 weeks I would like to join you guys if i can as the racing is on some of my favourite tracks?

I do have a question though, would I be able to possibly change cars for next season? Do I have to stick to the same car?

Gentlemen put the misunderstanding 's down to my age. The braincells aren't as sharp as they used to be.

Yeah very nice race guys!
My battle with @Raigore and @WarnTyre was pretty exciting, sadly it ended too quick.
After that it was basically just me and Warntyre, after him doing an early pit-stop.
Hold him off until last 2-3 laps i think? Then something started happening, i teleported forward, missing pretty much all brake-points. So instead of trying to keep P1 and make an incident, i just dropped off to P2.
I am happy though! Some nice points and a very nice race! :)

If enough people tell me that they will not be there on Wednesday night, then I will call you up and you'll get to race.

You can change cars for next season yes, you just can't use different cars in the same season.

It's great that we have folk of all ages here anyway ;)

Puuh. What a recovery race! Never would've thought I would recover after the crash in the uphill S.

Needed to pit for repairs quite early and just had to put my head down and be consistant as hell to wheel in the guys in front, I even managed to wheel in the first guys during my first tyre stint.

Had a nice hunt down with @Mulleyg for over the half of the race. I was pushing like crazy, because I wanted that 11th place and had some minor mistake and a pretty hot moment there in the bus stop, where I somehow managed not to spin, but basically sliding next to the track like crazy, without hitting the wall. I thought allready the fight was done and dusted, with a gap growing from ~ 1 sec. up untill 4 secs. (man that Ruf was quick on the straight before bus stop!) but I still was managing to shorten the distance and eventually he spun on the exit of bus stop facing backwards and I was lucky to avoid him basically. Really nice and consistant fight for time though! A shame it was decided that way.

After that I was actually beginning to settly in on 11th with @Gxbbs being like 25 secs out in front. But appearantly his tyres were pretty much smoked up, so I was presented with a quite unexpected P10. Thanks for the race guys!

Very disappointing race for me, qualified 6th which was about where I thought I would be, got to 5th off the start, and then just like Bathurst I spun on lap 1 and had to wait for the whole field to go through. Over the next few laps I climbed 7 or 8 places, pulling off some nice moves, which may have made me a bit over-confident. I tried to take @Gxbbs through turns 2 and 3 after getting the better drive out of turn 1, and it went badly for us both. I feel like it was my fault for trying the move and for that I'm sorry. I suffered suspension damage and had to pit early, meaning that while trying to catch @Zach Plummer for 6th I ran out of tyres and spun again.

Pretty disappointed with the result and the way I drove, as I think that I could have got a top 5. But next week is my favourite track Spa, and I hope to make a comeback. Congrats to all the top 4 as I probably wouldn't have been able to stay with you even if I didn't have any issues.

I was pushing as hard as I could to keep the gap to @Hideaki, and didn't even realize that I had been catching you. Had I started to push when you hit lap traffic, I could have had you. Or if there were a few more laps, I had plenty of life on my tires yet. Good race everyone, FINALLY felt comfortable in the Cadillac, first time all season I can say that. On to Spa.

It was so difficult to catch you, I had a low downforce setup so that I could be fast in the first sector and do all my overtaking there, but you were matching me there, and I was awful through the rest of the lap because of having no downforce, so if I didn't nail the first sector I'd lose like half a second a lap to you.

Yeah you were .5 seconds quicker than me in the first sector which made me a bit nervous. I was content with eventually letting you by and taking P7 but the last 2 sectors were just clicking for me. And was able to keep the gap, definitely my most consistent race all season and probably my best drive aside from my P3 at Brands Hatch last season.
