Arrow FMUK Open Cup Round 3

Click the image to open in full size.

The series jets across to America for Round 3 which is held on the Long course at Infineon Raceway. Round 3 is on Thursday 18th July at 9pm BST. If people can try to be online by 8:50 we have a good chance of getting this away promptly, hopefuly with none of the problems experienced in Week 1. Thanks

All drivers, except those shown below, will be on 500PI unless your car is listed in this thread:
Sign-up FMUK Open Cup - FMUK

Axiom - Ferrari 250 California, 489PI
Bailey - 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R, 508PI
Doony - Alfa Romeo GTV-6, 505PI
Magic - Lotus Cortina, 501PI
Milton - Nissan Silvia S13, 496PI
Stonedef - Lexus IS300, 502PI
Smokinmasta - Citroen DS4, 508PI
Spiny - AMC Gremlin, 504PI
Warrior - BMW 2002, 500PI

Track: Infineon Long
Laps: 28

The start procedure will be as follows. Drivers will form up in grid order at approximately 50mph on the run down to the second corner. Accelerate to racing speed out of Turn 2 (first sharp right-hander). No overtaking until you have exited the following left-right over the hill (Turn 4) unless the car in front of you goes completely off track. After that, it's racing as usual.

Drivers who competed in the series so far must run the same car, any new drivers to the series still have a free choice subject to the rules set out.

Something light and keep the roll bars close together with soft-medium springs will keep a car competitive.

I occasionally get that, usually just ejecting and reinserting works for me. Other than that, check to see if there's any scratches. If there are, polishing with a soft cloth and toothpaste may help smooth it off enough for the laser to read.

I expect I could send a couple of tunes over while I'm cooking tea, should get you started.

Also, I realised I hadn't updated the number of laps. We'll be running 33 which will be 2 or 3 minutes longer than usual to counteract the effect of the extremely loooooooooooooooooooong pitlane at Infineon.

one of the big reasons I get up tight about comps is that as soon as I say I m racing, my kids need the dad taxi. nothing for ages in the evening and tonight youngest is in town and time is ticking no call.. so whats going to happen 8 he'll phone collect, drop friend home frindly chats then home at some time after the race.

its not happend yet but ohhh its going to happen isnt it

grrrrr
