I should be okay, I get back from the gym at around 8pm, quick scrambled eggs and then onto the xbox. No idea what car yet.

Cheers Nick.

What I might do is limit it to two of each car in order to get every model on the grid. We probably won't get more than twelve entrants based on past weeks.

I've tested them all around Hockenheim and the times were within less than a second of each other. They all handle and drive nicely. There's certainly no bad car.

Put me down on the reserves, I'm down the local that night for a beer tasting but might be done by 9 :)

Will go for a maserati, or any other if the need representing.

I've put all the cars in the club garage for the benefit of AVGT members.

I'm still not sure what I'm driving. The Corvette Grand Sport is very tempting at the moment.

I like the maserati but it sometimes feels like the t yres are extremely slippery, it doesn't understeer or oversteer but it does slide around. Will tyre pressure adjustments help? I can't think of any other way.

Yep, it is, although I can switch it to Thursday if that will get a better turnout?

Seems as though interest is falling away already.

Assuming you've got the racing tyres fitted try increasing the tyre pressures front and back. I think I had them set at 34 front and back when testing. You could also add a bit of downforce and try adding camber at the front.

It is a bit heavier compared to some of the others if I remember right but in testing they all matched up quite closely for times.

Shall I take you off the list then Matt?

If you want a tune or paint job for it let me know.

Yep, sorry mate, I'm out with the family and the Mrs is driving back so would be too cheeky to get her waiting an hour for me to race.

I'm around tonight and tomorrow now though as she has deadlines.

Thursday is the works dinner.

Any night after next Monday I can make though :)

I'll have to switch then because I did say earlier I was trying for a max of two of each car to get as many makes on the grid as possible.
