Thanks for hosting an enjoyable race.  It was good to see some names I've not raced  before, including Chris from the Can-Am Historical team.  A promising grid position for us both, led to an early disco for me, when my connection gave out.  So it's congrats. to the winners, and those who survived, whoever they may be.

Yep, thanks for hosting! It was my first online race ever and to my big surprise I wasn't the slowest guy. :yahoo:
Unluckily I couldn't finish, however, I hope this was not the last race of this kind.

Big fun!

Good to be on track with some unfamiliar people too ..... and with unfamiliar cars !! , had some help from John Roberts who pointed me to his set ups here on srmz ,

I was lying in 2nd place and trying to gain on Roy when I had a screen freeze .............bahhhhhhhhhhhhh, I was having a blast until that point.

Was also good to see oAo on Igor for a change ;-).

i was happy to see some new faces (to me) but best of all was the professional approach everyone had - for being unfamiliar with each other, lots of room was given and mostly good racing.  i was one that spun in turn ? after the esses, the high point,  and ended up stalled in the groove, blind to oncoming traffic :(  sorry to Sky who was in 2d at the time.. my car went over the fencing and i didn't feel it was right to sh-R after that :P  

the track did seem to cause some CTD's or Screen Freezes. i had one before qually, but changed my screen resolution down a click and had no issue in race ..

to do again?
well.. maybe. i was hoping to recruit a driver or 2 to our league,  but we'll see - maybe if deluged with requests ;)

thanks for racing to those that did, or intended to, but had real life priorities.
