T160 will hit 181 right as it leaves the track at the top of the hill, otherwise I'm topping out at about 177ish when I brake for the last turn.

EDIT: No sooner do I say that then I learn that he will in fact hit 184 just before the Braking point.

He looked back and where he'd taken off, it was way back, 150 yards or more. He looked at the car and he looked way back and he looked at the car and then he said "F@%k"...and that was the story of the Can-Am" -Sam Posey

Attention de bien négocier la fausse courbe à droite sur la bosse pour perdre un minimun de vitesse.
On peut perdre facilement 10km/h. J'y arrive à 293km/h (182mph), je ne perd qu'1 km/h (181mph).

Count me in please!

Little tip for anyone who wants to try it. I’m hitting 184mph in my 5l Porsche but extending it to 188mph simply by lowering my 4th gear and letting it bounce of the Rev limiter. Wouldn’t recommend for the race but for qualifying could help top speed for some..

Great track though, shame it doesn’t have 16 chicanes down the back straight for myself but never mind :rigol:

would love to, but mother nature has other plans. i knew my schedule would be out of control this time of year, was the main reason i didnt request a car. still an outside chance this breaks early enough i can have everything done and home in time. alarm set for 3am, fingers crossed ;P if i can make and a car is still free, i'll drive anything. if i dont make it, tough track, tough cars, good luck everyone!

Might need a rule about parking drivers for the race after X amount of incidents. I feel like I saw a lot of the same cars stopped on the side of the track (or in the middle of the track) several times throughout the event. This is done in stock car racing and it's a way to prevent things from getting too out of hand as the night progresses.

I get that not everyone is in the same skill bracket, but there is a difference between cars 1 or 2 laps down, versus cars 8-12 laps down who just shouldn't be out there. There's nothing to gain when you're that far removed from the actual competitive part of the race and have so little car control.

Grats Yves, following you in the last laps and listening to that Ferrari sound was quite a treat after a pretty up-and-down race for me!

I had a seriously great joust for position five with David Jundt and David Jaques for pretty much the first half hour, but then a driving error from a lapped car put David out of the race and cost me one of the four wheels. You win some, you lose some. That puts me in the weird position where I am happy with the experience of driving in the race although I'm a bit mad about the result.  bounce Definitely  looking forward to the next one!

Yeah, that whole thing was a bit of a mess. Definitely a driver error from Fillipo. Poor driving, but I'm sure he didn't want to cause that. However, you making that move in the first place put us both in a vulnerable position. Needless to say I didn't appreciate you taking that risk since it cost me four minutes of repairs and a shot at the podium. On the other hand, pretty much the whole exchange before that was some of the greatest racing I've had in a long time, so it's easy to forgive. Thanks for the battle!
