In watched it live, the tv coverage showed the track conditions very well indeed.

I've seen a LOT of racing.... I know what i saw...

you did a great job fighting back, but you WERE caught out....

You do highlight an important point others may not realise... kingers 996 has ABS, and your 997 does not.

You drove very well, you didn't even make a mistake as such, just that the other guy did a better job for 2 corners.

I WASN'T CAUGHT OUT FOR FUCK SAKE. I KNEW I HAD NO GRIP COMING OUT OF TURN 5 AND FOR THE REST OF THE LAP BEHIND THE SAFETY CAR I WEAVED THE CAR FROM SIDE TO SIDE, SPUN THE REAR WHEELS TRYING EVERYTHING TO REMOVE THE GRAVEL FROM MY TYRES. COMING TO THE LAST CORNER I STILL HAD NO GRIP. KINGSLEY AND GOODACRE WENT THROUGH THE TRACKS I MADE AND THEY HAD LESS GRAVEL ON THEIR TYRES. I DID ALL I COULD TO KEEP KINGSLEY BEHIND ME BUT IT WAS HOPELESS. ON TOP OF THIS WE (997 CARS) HAVE TO RUN PERFORMANCE FRICTION BRAKES AND I DO NOT LIKE THEM AT ALL. PADIG PADS AND BREMBO ROTORS ARE FAR BETTER IMHO. TOWARDS THE END OF THE RACE MY BRAKE PEDAL HAD FURTHER TRAVEL AND I DIDN'T HAVE THE STOPPING POWER TO PULL THE CAR UP, AND I BELIEVE THE BRAKE PACKAGE ISN'T UP TO LONG DISTANCE EVENTS. I DIDN'T ASK OTHER COMPETITORS AFTER THE RACE ABOUT THEIR CARS BRAKES BUT THEY WEREN'T IN THE 60 SECS PER LAP CATEGORY, FIRSTLY GAINING A 6 SECOND LEAD ON THE ENTIRE PACK THEN CHASING DOWN KINGSLEY.

YOU DO KNOW WHY THIS IS IN CAPITALS?

BECAUSE YOU TALK SHIT AT TIMES AND IF YOU WEREN'T THERE IN THE RACE IT IS BEST TO SAY NOTHING.

sometimes you need to refrain from saying what your head is thinking until you hear the correct info my friend. you aren't always right.
lol...touche.

Very easy to drive like Schumacher on a Playstation...jump into the real thing with 20 guys all trying to stuff it up the inside of your rather expensive car and you get an appreciation just how hard racing quickly and safely can be.
Well  done Roger on a great round and a very nippy 60.7sec in the final race. Not easy to master non-abs braking on that track with the bumps and off-camber turns.

now now, no need to get all tetchy..

you're not the first guy to go through a bit of shit on the track you know...

it happens. To lots of people.


So, do the 996's get to choose their brake materials?

I thought project mu were on board, no?

and where was Sven... is he doing this year???

thanks, though we are amateurs in the series and that's the point. cup car ran 60.1 race time in 2006 and the track i believe was not as good as now, though you could cut turns 4 and 5 back then as no ripple strip, now there are ripple strips to go over.

996 brakes are free and they run mu.

997 have to run PFB pads and rotors, easier to lock up and they don't release.

sven has car for sale, could be sold. he is too busy ATM/other issues.

ok ta.

Are you allowed to alter the car?

Could run smaller master cylinders on 997, to help that problem.
