This should be fun, looking forward to it after missing too many of these events recently.

Good man Pete - unfortunately I'm away for this one and as much as I wanted to land you boys with a crap combo so i don't miss out I couldn't bring myself to do it LOL.

Being the F1 championship finale weekend it was the only car choice really and as Martin and I both had a blast running it around Zandvoort GP in the Formula Fun week I figure you guys will have some giggles plus there should be a reasonable turnout from the iR forum contingent with any luck.

Folk should be familiar with this combo after the Williams ran there after it was released ..... great combo, but it's goign to be a heck of a challenge as ever it is in that car!!

Heheh yes I hope you chaps plan on getting down to the local gym - 40 mins really is the upper limit for me at least in one of these cars!

At least you've got all of about ooh 2.1 seconds to chill out while it eats up the start/ finish straight ;).

Couldn't see password though.

It will appear in the box above the discussion closer to race time.

I've enjoyed the last couple of weeks in the little Mazda's, don't/won't have the F1 car so I'll be missing this one.

Have fun all.

I gotta make an effort to do this one, it was great fun in the ......"fun" week!

And if Oily has the Mazda's coming I might even make it two in a row?!!

Fantastic announcement mr. oily :D

And I think I will join you lot tonight. Though I still wrestle with FW31, I drove it most at Zandvoort so I should be able to at least keep on track ;)

Server should be up anytime now (hopefully) assuming I've done everything right in Oily's absence!

I assumed an average lap time of 1m20s so hopefully that'll be around 40 mins with a 30 lap race.

Cheers, Ross.

Results now available - if "Jarl Teien" could make his forum identity known I'll link that result up too... ;)

I wasn't there because I don't do F1 cars. :laugh:

Thanks for helping out Ross/ Dave - hope it was a bit of fun even in spite of the low turnout.

Nice to see you've joined the F1 owners club Jimbo - not too shabby in it either by the look of things! ;)

Thanks Kruger - shame you couldn't make it in the end dude!

Sorry I didn't make this - I opted for the 9pm Grand Am official race as I'm looking to do a full season in the Mustang in that.

Me and Pops were in the race together, set for a 1-2 before Pops disconnected ... and set for a 1-2 after he rejoined :D - dunno what happened with the other Mustangs but after Pops got wrecked by a DP I got caught up in the incident (Pops rejoined 2.8 seconds ahead of me after the disco - exactly where he'd been before it).  It was the end of both our races ... but we still finished 1st and 2nd :D.  6 laps for a win and 94 points for me :D, 2nd and 70 points for Pops :).

Sadly I'm away Friday this week .... so can this week's choice be one of those roundy roundy clown cars? :D

Hahaha yes looking good there Blunder but what happened to your speed from the other races eh!? I thought you'd be wiping the floor with 'em! Never mind, you might get another chance sooner than you think ;)

I'll not forget such betrayal in a hurry Adam/ Pops!  :nono: Nice finish though ;)

There's gotta be something cursed about those Fridays  :-\

My daughter just didn't feel very good and had trouble sleeping with here nose running.

One day I say... one day I'll come and be lapped by all you lot :)
