Unfortunately will miss this round, which is a shame as I quite enjoy Barbagallo. Good luck all.

Cheers for last night guys, was some very good racing from what I saw.

Big shout to Kelvin for giving most of us a setup that makes the car feel like a race car _b

What an awesome race that was! I managed to hang on to 5th place for the beginning of the sprint race but due to my car setup and me pushing too hard, the tyres were pretty much shot by mid race and I ended up tumbling down to 8th place before having a big slide and having to pit as my front left was completely done - resulting in 10th place.

But thanks to Kevin for his awesome setup, my car was a lot easier on the rubber going into race 2 - where I really enjoyed a great scrap with BlackJack and Danman, going mirror to mirror and door to door from one corner to the other. Danman did an impressive job of preserving his tires, which paid off with a great finishing result too.

Can't wait for the next race, these V8s are epic fun!
