Theres been a slight hitch in the giddyup... Simons Internet has crashed and is not functioning. I have put up the back-up server and it should be available momentarily.

Hi guys, we will have a sever available soon.  We lost Simon's server, Chad getting his ready.  Stay tuned

Sorry, had to bail.
Got one of my bikes up for sale and was expecting a possible punter at 3:30
Had a good time till then though.
Chad, did I cause you to go off at the first chicane?  Sorry if I did, I was not doing a very good job of looking in my mirrors and was surprised to see you close to me just before I went in for the turn from far outside, maybe I squeezed you off there on the outside?
Also at the start I was expecting a full formation lap and there was a stutter just as we went through the last chicane and the next thing I know people are passing my left and right LOL. didn't even know the race had started.
Thanks to the admins and Simon for all the work he does, too bad he missed the race due to no internet.

We are sorry about the server problems today, thank you for your patience.

And thank everyone for your participation today. It was a lot of fun.  We will do more races like this in the future.

We will be posting soon information about the fall series.

Cheers, Juan

Congrats to today's winners, Juan and Tom K.  And thanks to Juan for putting the event together.

After expecting the worst I had a good race and a heck of a lot of fun.  Certainly a faux pas (or so) along the way that included a drive through and a stop and go for track cutting but all in all it went well.  With no complaints about the race itself I do have to say that some of these newer tracks have what I'd call ridiculous "cut track" penalties.  I say this because both of mine came on what I'd say were very minor misses and gave me absolutely no time advantage whatsoever.....however, on one occasion I completely blew a chicane, straight through the sandbox, went from about .3 seconds behind my best lap at that point to over, yes OVER, 4 seconds ahead and no penalty!  To me that's ridiculous.  (I did slow until I got back to being behind my best lap, not that it mattered.)  Wish there was something that could be done about that stuff.

So, thanks again, Juan.....see everyone on track soon.

The start was quite interesting. From the grid to the end of the formation lap in a blink of an eye. :D

Quite a decent race. I went round trying to avoid Phil in the first chicane. From there on I was quite alone. I managed to get back to Tom N, with flat spots all over the place. Went around in Tertre, to ruin my second set of tyres and later on in the lefthander after Porsche Curves. But with Phil and Akira having some problems in the end, I managed to move up some places. :D

Heh, could say the start was the result of setting up the backup server rather quickly. Unfortunately we got information of Simon's internet connection problems at a bit too late. But tbh, I think no one would have liked to drive a full lap with snail pace either :D

The race was quite interesting. Sebastian was attacking me at the beginning, it was close, but I came on top. At some point Kamil overtook Sebastian and we went side by side to the fast right hander at the back of the track. I stayed inside, but once I straightened my car for the upcoming left hander I had Kamil in front of me and not enough braking distance to avoid nudging him a bit. I got the worst of it and went a bit wide tapping the barriers. That gave me a bit of damage but not anything I was planning to fix. I think the damage might have slowed me down, because after that my pace wasn't that competitive anymore. Might be the other guys also stepped up their game.

I also had one big spin during the race which I escaped without a contact (one of those long right handers I think). That combined with my strategy to not change front tires the whole race might have been costly. Towards the end I was locking up quite a bit as my tires didn't feel round anymore. I also got drive through penalty for coming in too hot for my second pitstop. 4th wasa bit disappointing result after qualifying 1st. We surely need to make this race an annual thing in one form or another.

My pitstops were 36 and 40 seconds (adding full fuel and changing rears on both occasions). Not sure if I gained any time there by changing only rears? Did anyone else do shortshifting? Looking back at how much fuel I had in the end, it might have been pointless here (though I could have put less fuel on my second pitstop, but not because I saved 0,1-0,15 liters per lap due to shortshifting).
