Inbetween racing I will either be:

1) cleaning the fuzz off the car and checking it over
2) marshalling
3) having a smoke
4) consuming my only pint for the nights racing (we race from 1900hrs until about 2230hrs)
5) chatting to just about anyone about racing
6) making sure the battery is charged (useful huh? )
7) saucing the tyres
8) om nom nom.... *pause*....

damn theres tyre additive on my hands!

Default The downtime boredom between races

At race days where there are 20 or more races, I would think that it's almost pointless to race unless you are in at least 3 classes. You could spend 12 hours at the track for 15 min of on-course action if you only run 1 class. BORRRRING.

I know that getting three setups is not cheap but I recently added a T4 and B44 to my list of cars (already have a B4) so the number of classes I can run increases. I don't really like SC racing (but am glad it is helping RC prosper) so waiting for all the exhaustive number of SC classes to run their heats is a good time to take a nap.
