Not sure I'll be able to make this race. Got a tone of course work and revision for next week. I'll be able to tell you if I'm racing by Monday.

What times?
and is the darkness difficult?
I've done low 44's atm... During the day that is, so I can get used to the track lol
I know I can do a 43 though, with some more setup work.
Pole in Season 1 was a mid-high 42, by an Audi... Aaaand I've got a good feeling about this track;)
Reckon pole will be a little off that this season, considering it's at night...
And yes, it's very dark lol

Don't speak to soon wouldn't surprise me if the quick guys are below 1:40 but as I said I've never done a single lap of this track so I have no idea what a good time is. :)
Fastest times for the Z4 are low-mid 41's...
I find it impossible to believe that the guys in your league will get any lower than that.
Pole for you will be a 42 I bet, it being in the dark an' all...

So then, err, this happened...

I know, it's daytime I'm just getting used to the track again and since it's a dry race, my setup work can be done at the same time;)

Now, I'm fully expecting a Z4 or two and @Hugh263 at least to be faster, but that's 6 tnths up on my time in the Aston from Season 1 so I'm happy about that!
Reckon I've got 2-4 tnths to gain from some tinkering and me hooking all my sectors together though lol

Good time Bullit.
Problem for this track (special info for Alex and the night race fans) is that, at night, there are 2 breaking areas that have no reference points at all, so it's too easy to get it wrong. This is a superb track but the racing will be ruined because its dark.
Pb of 1.43.5 so far in the dark.

I've already done two full race simulations, no problems for me :p

Not if my luck continues, every race this season has gone a little pear shaped.
I'm doing 44.2s in the night, I got the consistency trophy doing 45.4s on old tyres.
And definitely a no stop @Hugh263

Well **** - that's wiped the grin from my face when I did a 44.5 straight out of the box. Don't suppose you kept that mclaren setup by any chance?

Hmmm, drug assisted night vision eh Alex? Lol

Practice lunchtime today with Marc and Pete and got into the 42's at night. Not much more left. No way 41's for me.
