    I'm down as being joint 6th, but actually i was 7th. Still, really happy with that.
    Still stuck at 11th overall. I guess my poor start in the first few weeks has hindered me.

    Well done to everyone last week. A nice little circuit.

    Since I didn't have any registered times for Bathurst and i hadn't done any TT for the last 4 days I thought I would put down some easy benchmarks for you all tonight. Go for it.

    Craig, you're not included since you don't need benchmarks.

    Just a bit of trivia for you all, I used to live in Australia and I was a truck driver for a while, one job was working for a specialised transport company and I was taking this million + dollar prototype cat scanning equipment up to Bathurst hospital in a 12 tonne truck for a medical expo. I just couldn't resist taking a detour and having a few goes around Mt Panorama. Had the truck on 2 wheels a few times but stayed upright thank god :cool:

    Wow, very happy with 4th in last weeks.
    Not looking forward to the track much this week but I love the 650S so hopefully it will be an average "meh" for me :)

    That sector sucks in any car! Rest of the track is not bad it's just that one combination of corners that's awful

    Scooby had the temerity to spoil my clean sweep of all the sectors and the lap so I spent my lunch half hour getting it back.

    A short term futile gesture but I had to do it. :)

    I should have said that I had the top spot apart from Craig.

    Craig, you have all the fastest times you don't need to improve them. Please don't waste your time checking, I'm sure you have more important things to do.

    I'll let you know if you need to try again. :)

    I agree, those times Craig has posted on this circuit are unreachable. He doesn't even have to try, he can rely on the times he casually posted previously. We won't be able to get anywhere near them this week.....:D

    Yep you are right that sector 3 is a right bugger! I like the rest of the track and the lap is very satisfying it’s just that trusty bit that ruins it.

    Got some okish times down but there’s loads to improve in as none of them were anywhere near perfect.

    Difficult getting any of them sectors perfect with a pad, what is it like with a wheel?
    How are people tackling sector 3?
    I'm trying to reach as fast as a speed I can and then brake and steer the car down through the corners.
    It is like being on a roller coaster and I would not want to drive that part of the circuit for real!

    Hit the beginning in 5th and brake then I just coast changing down. It’s that first tight right hander that’s so difficult and so easy to spin.
    After that I’m flat out until the right hairpin which I take in 1st.
    With me it’s down to luck as to whether I even make it halfway down the hill!

    Terrible car choice! :nono: Anything but a V8 Ford (or Holden if you swing that way) is wrong, wrong, wrong.

    See here's a proper lap, by a kiwi too :smashin:

    Scott McLaughlin completes first 2.03 at Mount...

    I'm thinking the lap time should be down in the 2:04s, not that I'll get that low but my 2:06 had quite a few mistakes and could easily gain a second or more in sector 2 & 3.

    If anyone gets into the 2:03s that would be amazingly impressive :)

    I had a quick go this morning and it was one of those situations when you just don't get on with the car! Improved sector 1 just a little, ( the top times are very close) but there are far too many mistakes being made by myself. :facepalm:

    Last night when I did the lap I got the car round in a 2.05.7xx time but because it deemed me as hitting the barriers, I got a massive penalty and I got a 2.08.xxx time instead. Tried chasing the ghost down as I knew if I could beat it cleanly I would get a good time but no, just couldn't!:mad:

    I think it wll be Jim's week this week, in the sense he will be the one to finish 2nd to Craig.

    I think I will just consolidate my 2nd position overall otherwise I will end up smashing my TV up.:D

    Surely the paint scrapes are enough proof ;) "deemed me" :rotfl:

    Is there any way to make the ghost car more ghosty?
    I'd like it a bit more transparent, as sometimes when you get close it's hard to see through, and can cause mistakes.

    Not happy. Work has been a PITA and stopped me even registering a time for Tsukuba. I might have to take them to court if this carries on. Don't they realise that this is what's really important in life! :nono:
    Must must must find some time this week.
