That was a good evening of racing "Fun" tonight.

Thanks for hosting and organising.

You guys are so fast but safe . thanks hope I didnt get in the way too much.  The cars bear down on you pretty fast in Canam.

Evil came past me at least twice, with the new virtual mirrors helping to see behind ,  it was fun watching him coming at me 90 degrees to the track. it was like a dream.. it was like I was racing Big Gerry Marshall. LOL

hopefully you guys know who that is.  regarded as a possible formula One contender, but he would haver fitted in a GP car. he was almost as wide as Dan Gurney was Tall .LOL

That was a lot of fun. Thanks to Phil and Greg for the company. I felt that I was quicker through the first section (tyres) but your cars had the legs on me on the long back straight. Fun racing tonight even though this is NOT my favourite track. Mind you, it started to grow on me as the race went on. I'm just happy to finally get a point in this championship.

Grats to the front runners - some VERY fast times there. Bravo.

Yes Pete, it was a great race with you and Greg. Our laps times were very very close, it was as usual who made the least mistakes.  I think I made 2 mistakes to your 1 and Greg's 0 (well I never saw him make a mistake). I caught you both with a couple of laps to go. I tried my best to pass Greg but I couldn't make it stick. Great racing Greg.

Pete, sorry about the nudge after the start. I waited for you to recover and thankfully we didn't loose any places.

Well, that was one of the hardest races I have ever driven in GPL. I must have lost 5kg in sweat!!!

With the M1B I had a car with far too much power on a track with a long straight, which was great, but some very tight corners where a fraction heavy on the gas would just flip the car around.
Quali was a little surprising as I hoped to be near the front, but did not expect to be on pole. For a while I was over 1 sec faster than the field....then Yannick turned up the heat and slotted into 2nd spot. It looked like being a tough race.

For me, the rolling start was a relief as it guaranteed that I held the lead, probably as far as the straight for Lap 1 at least. Yannick was on my tail for Turn 6, but with cold tyres and far too much horsepower no-one was risking planting the gas, so we ran line astern to the straight where a pattern emerged.

It seemed that I could get the power down out of the Esses and onto the main straight just a little better than Yannick and on each lap, provided that I got the Esses right, I could pull a 50mtr lead before the final banked corner. Then after T1 Yannick was much quicker through the switchback down to T6 and would be on my ass as we exited that corner.
Lap after lap the pattern repeated with small errors opening or closing the gap that was never more than 150mtrs and Yannick always looking for an opportunity.
I hope that my driving was fair and defensive, but geez it was intense!!  I was probably running at 95%-98% just to avoid making a dumb mistake and giving Yannick an opening.
As the race progressed I began to wonder if I could hold Yannick off for the full 27 laps, and as they counted down it looked possible. But just a few laps from the end I was too eager out of the Esses and spun up the rear tyres, that put me a little sideways in the final turn, which increased the temps even more. That all came together at T1 when the rear wheels gave up the battle to stick to the tarmac over that small crest. The car went sideways and I just could not hold the slide, although I just about prevented a full spin. Unfortunately Yannick was committed to the same corner and found his route blocked by a sideways McLaren.
This was the only contact between us in the whole race, but we both had to use our single Shift/R. My car reset ahead of Yannick and I could have set off and retained 1st place, but I felt that the accident was my fault and it would be wrong to benefit from the collision.
Once Yannick had passed into 1st place we were back to skating on cold tyres for the last few laps, but we had a large gap back to 3rd spot so I settled for 2nd place because I was exhausted and did not want to risk throwing it all away lol.

Thanks to Yannick for some epic, clean racing at such high speed. I see that there was very little between our best laps, which was clear from our positions in the race. Also thanks to those who were lapped and gave us both the clear space to throw ourselves past you.

It was great battle indeed, Evil. No complaints on my part in terms of fair play. A little shame it ended the way it did. I must add the note that I didn't require a Shift-R in the accident.

With the M1B you had a significant power advantage, which was very noticable on the back straight. No matter how good the exit; the additional BHP is so substantial compared to the 333 cu. Chevy engine that I was hopeless on the straight!

So I had to rely on my cornering abilities but there was no real space to pass. The best chances were around T6, where I tried to switcheroo a few times, only to be beaten out by the M1B's monstrous engine.

In the end, all I could do was pressure Evil to a mistake, which happened with 3 laps left.

Very fun race, great mod/track combo. See you next race!

If you did not require a Shift/R Yannick, then I feel that I was correct in allowing you to take 1st place....................at least that is my excuse  Roll Eyes.

Well now...  That started off a bit ghastly but ultimately turned into a ripper of a race.  Smiley

Qualifying went reasonably well if a bit congested at times and I had to be content with a lap a full second off my previous best in the Chaparral.  We actually got a clean roller start!  Take a bow, guys.

Coming off T6 on Lap01, the race was on and I gassed it up to T7 with Fulvio in close company.  There, I suddenly found cars going very slowly indeed and I went left to miss them but collided with Alain's Lola to spin to dead last.  Turns out that Phil had bunted Pete and caused a bit of a drama.  Picking up the pieces, I pressed on passing a few cars til I ended up some six seconds down on Fulvio on Lap08.  Over many a lap to follow, I slowly whittled away the margin as he was having a fierce duel with Alain.  It wasn't until about Lap18 that I actually got a whiff of his slipstream as the gap was now down to all of two seconds.  Lap19 and a major development as Alain got the Lola well out of shape entering T9 and Fulvio slipped by for the place.  I was close enough to get position on Alain for T1 and scampered by to follow Fulvio.  A hard lap for Alain.  It almost looked like Alain backed out of it and voluntarily gave me the place.  Perhaps his tyres were cooked.

This left me close to Fulvio with Alain not that far behind.  A good trio having at it with seven laps to run.  Following Fulvio onto the back straight, he could out-pull me coming off T8 but I could close further along the straight.  Clearly, he was sporting a bottom gear lower than I.  My 1st gear was substantially taller which let me run from T9 all the way to T8. 

Comes Lap22 and I'm close enough exiting T8 to catch a good tow on the back straight and I position off Fulvio's right.  I was surprised in that I think Fulvio got out of the throttle early and I surged by going into T9.  I wasn't really making a serious bid but one musn't look a gift horse in the mouth, right?  We rounded T9 virtually side-by-side and in the run down to T1, my taller first gear paid dividends as I maintained the place.  Alain had fallen back a couple of seconds but was still in the mix.  Fulvio made an easy pass on the back straight on Lap23 and I could hear the fat lady warming up in the wings.  To start Lap26, a mere 1-1/2 seconds spanned the time between Fulvio and Alain with me the filling in the sandwich.  Sadly for Alain, his threat evaporated with a spin in T1 on this lap.  In many cases like this in a close battle with someone of equal performance, I would ask myself, 'What would Fulvio do?'  Knowing that he is the cleanest and safest of GPL pilots, the last thing in the world I would want to do is bungle a pass attempt and shunt him off.  Coming off T8 for the last time, I was really close to Fulvio this time and got a fine tow.  I took up position on Fulvio's right and breezed by into T9.  My Chaparral ran very slightly high and I feared that Fulvio might get position on me in the run to the flag but no, he came up just 1/10 of a second down.  Fabulous race!  Great job, Fulvio!

I scored this one 4/5 over at GPLWeekly.

Some terrific battles up and down the field not least of which was for the lead.  Only resolved by a massive shunt by Clive in the late laps.  Bad luck there, mate.  Yannick fully deserved of the win.  Nice turn out of entries, chaps.

Good race for me. I didn't have time to test all the cars, but the 305 ford Lola was an easy drive after some easy listening setup work

I missed what happened at the pile up at 7 so wondered why Doni was closing from behind  Huh moved over to let him through, as I wasn't really in the same race
My race was with Francesco, and I seemed to be slowly pulling a gap, so why not. It became a bit lonely after that, until I was trying to get
to 200MPH on the straight, and popped the motor down the dip, so pulled over and did the ShftR, then continued up to the flag
Only other bit of interest was when a red car with another one stuck to it with araldite came up behind on the straight  Shocked so I kept left to let them through

I will miss the next one of these, as I have to go down to London for work that week.  Sad
