around 100 entries at the last count; 20 Minis, 21 Legends, 18 Classics, 16 Sports & Saloons, even 13 Fiestas (Hot Hatch). So decent size grids which should look good. Assembly Area will be busy squeezing them all in.
See you all soon

Diff let go on the main straight while accelerating. Didn't expect the Diff to be a failure point.

This video shows the point of failure

Does anyone know if there are visual references for the speed trap locations on the circuit itself? Im sure it has been brought up previously, but I couldn't find it.

I think the map is included in SLS results but not SMRC. No idea why Laughing

do a better write up for mini race but essentially.
Race 1 was a hooligan race and quite frankly a joke. There was a train of people to steve burns and at one point i had assisted someone showing my footage and saw steve having someone f'ing and blinding to him. not great.
race 2 was all calm and collected and i had a lot of fun and race 3 wasn't great for me.

On plus side managed to take 1.2 seconds off best time but admittedly with tyre change/track change hard to tell how much is me v's everything else. However looking at lap times of races its putting me into the middle of the pack so just have to work on my big brass balls for racing.

andy, some folk need to take out their frustrations on the playstation. I can see some getting lines from the headmaster "Motorsport is a non-contact sport, it is not banger racing".

there was a few unhappy people in the paddock
