Happy with the results. with almost no practise and on standard setup I had great battles with quite a few drivers early on in the races before i swapped tyres off the softs in my pit stops. great series of 3 corners side by side with billy bob.

Took Partenope under the wing and he ran 2 fantastic races running in top ten in this crowd and only 2 spots behind me in both races from memory. Well done Partenope on fantastic races on your first race in these cars.

good night for me, staying up the pointy end, and good clean racing with all others i came across,
i managed to run two sets of sprints but they were shot and I lost heaps of time on lap 10 and 21,
drove smooth letting it out wide when i could, had no problems with left front
wrxxy run fast and smooth also picking me off last lap on R2 with him having better tyres

Thought I'd jump in for a rare run with the Saturday SuperTaxi boys.

Did a bit of praccy during the week, but nothing like what I put in for TCL lol.

Wacked a fairly basic setup, and managed to quali in the top 10.

Race - Lost a few places being overly cautious in the first 3 or so turns, but then got into a rhythm. I was a bit shattered to see Wally driving away from me, and watch Pete drive past and away, but was hopeful they were on the sprint tyre. Ran the intermediate almost as far as a tank of fuel would take it, then bolted on the softs and wow! It took me almost 2 laps to get used to the extra grip! My out lap was as quick as I had been running on the inters! Lol.
Closed down quite a few people who were struggling home on their 10+ lap old softs. Almost managed to close down Kris, I think I closed 6 seconds in 2 laps, to finish 2.5 behind at the line. Dude, you still had some fairly good pace on those used softs, that's for sure!

Race 2 - same as race 1. Load up with fuel and inters. Tried to let people on the sprints go, as I didnt want to get involved in a crash. Just cruised around, popping in the occaisonal 1:59... I know, slow hey? Compared to race 1, I was around a second faster though!
Ran a lap or 2 longer as the tyres managed to hold on a bit, and then did the same again, closing on those who had old sprints that were getting a bit slidey.. Had a great battle with Billy toward the end, who was sliding all over the place, but refused to give up the position. Was awesome mate, top notch stuff. Think I ended up 4th behind the Aliens.

Great turnout once again with 19 (I think) for the first race.....

I was going to run controls but chickened out at the last minute and decided to run sprints and stop twice.... Suspect

Pretty happy where i finished concidering the talent we had racing....... 4th in race 1 and 5th in race 2 bounce bounce bounce

Thanks for all who attended and made it a great night's racing! cheers

What a fun night!. Although the races didn't go my way at all it was still great racing.
Had some dreat fights with wally... that was almost ballet wally... side by side without a bash... think i had a bit of paint scrubbed off! awsome stuff! then mozza who arrived to find me in pretty poor shape and well down on his pace... I had a red hot go but could not withstand the relentless attack and had to yield or crash (my heart rate was off the scale, dripping with sweat lol).

And finally pete.. ariving in the same style as mozza, although now with only a couple of laps to go i was determined to hold my spot, but alas i was forced into an error entering the final two turns and he nailed me, well done pete good racecraft.

and finally well done to partenope great results in a difficult series.

Was a bit of a balls up for me, ran the Inters for both races hoping the 1 pitstop strategy was gonna work, unfortunately I forgot to realise the length of Albert Park and a 2 stop on Sprints was definitely the go.

Race 1
Apologies to Stevo, was right up his clacker when he got loose in turn 10, he was looking straight at that left wall, tried to get around him, but only managed an unintentional pit maneuver on him, I'm hoping the spin actually minimised his damage. Sorry mate.

I saw the grass was a bit long in Turn 10 so gave it a mow, unfortunately when I got loose and speared across the track, there was Billy Bob, BB scraped the right wall and I did a 180 right in front of Jordy who was obviously a passenger and could not avoid T-boning me.

Pretty much uneventful from then on for a 5th place finish.

Race 2
Got a nice start but knew those on the sprints were gonna get away.
Just watched the replay where Billy Bob got inside me on Turn 6 lap 1.
Saw him spear off to the right, seems I tagged you there mate, if I had realised it, I would have stopped matey to readdress that, you had the line and the pass.
I deserve a penalty for that one marshalls. (hangs head low in disgust)
Poetic justice when I got in the sand on lap 20 and lost 2 places to Billy and Peter.

Had a great battle with Mozza though in both sessions, was trying everything to stay in front o him, but to no avail.

Great racing to all except me...
