The yellow car was Jon Sterling, Ritchie was in the blue.. not sure of red. A3 was way better, RR dropped the hammer in the last few laps. I remembered these videos because of some "debate" about driving styles.

Side note... How f ing small was that track?
It want that small, I've been on smaller tracks

Diagonal straights are pretty cool, but with 2 straights we would be looking at way lower lap times, hp will rule

G we wouldn't do two straights. The concept is a decent straight up the middle. Do some carousel type turns in the lower right hand into a sweeper to uper right. Dive into a technical area on the uper left into a small left hand into a longer up the middle diagonal straight. Full back straight and middle wasn't the idea.

Last night the pencil was clicking and eraser dust was flowing. Trying to perfect the right before moving on...

I miss SIR, good times. Been thinking about dusting off some old cars and coming out to hangar 30, Are there any house transponders anymore? Has everyone got personals these days?

Default Can-Am Challenge

Hi all,

I haven't been on here for a while. It's cool that track layouts are being discussed! (Just for the record, I think a front straightaway is a disaster waiting to happen... it's hard to look ahead! Anywho, just my personal opinion)

So, I just wanted to double check, what time do the doors open for the Can-Am race?

I heard it was 10am, but I wanted to make sure.

Thanks!
Sam
