PostSubject: Indy 500 : Starting Grid | Grille de Départ   Mon 31 May 2010 - 15:02

OK here is the line-up for the race. Only 21 drivers attended the Pole Day session, against 28 last year. The attendance was disappointing… I understand we all have a life besides simracing, but please try to be sure you can make the race before booking a car. Also at least trying the mod before taking a starting spot helps. This year we had a full grid which meant some potential drivers did not register, but with all the late withdrawals we are facing a smaller field than last year and with less than a week to go I’m not optimistic about our chances of finding replacements…

Anyways the Pole Day session went well otherwise. The only problems were for last year’s poleman and 2010 track designer JP Campmajo, who had both his runs ruined by an rFactor bug. The only crashes were for Thomas Cazorla and Antoine de Mautor in their first runs. Both made up for that with a good second run, Thomas was even on his to way 9th when a big slide out of turn 4 in the last lap cost him a full second. Apart from these three drivers, five others elected to do a second run, all of them except Steve Parker bettering their initial mark. Steve’s bargain for a better starting spot was unsuccessful, but he lost only 2 places in the process, from 9th to 11th. The best improvement was for Carl Larrad who bettered his first run time by more than 2 seconds. Carl had had a troubled first runs, hitting the wall quite hard in turn 1 on lap 2. Other sensible ameliorations were for rookies Carlo Pozzi and Nico Diard who battled it for rookie honours. Nico eventually had the last word, 4mn04s04 against 4mn04s35.

The first fast time was by Tiago Malafaya who clocked in 4mn03s09. But the heavy favourite was Guillaume Siebert and he confirmed that right from his first qualifying lap with a 1mn00s49 lap which would turn out to be the fastest qualifying lap of the day. Gui added three consistent laps in the 1mn00s6/7 bracket to total 4mn02s53, a time just a tad slower than JP’s 2009 pole (4mn02s38). Gui’s only challenger was Martin Audran, who started with a 1mn00s51 and also followed that with three laps in the same 1mn00s6/7 region as Gui, but eventually his total time was slightly over Gui’s, by only 4/100th of a second ! Tiago’s time was good enough for 3rd place on the grid.

The following drivers have not confirmed their participation to the race. They can still attend the race on Sunday but if so would start at the back of the grid :

Difficult for me to anticipate my presence or not as I've been notified my trip to Aix Friday at 5:00 PM. It wasn't something I schedulded at first and I've no way to predict it before. I've to compensante at the last minut for the sickness of a collegue. Sorry for the disturbance.
