If I do come in ESP it'll either be on street tyres or some over used R888s so no need to worry (too much)

how come you have a choice? is it that the classification failes by favoring you? That is putting you in a lower class, when you're competitive in a higher one?

Anyone can choose to run in a higher class if they want to.

My car is an ES car. I can run in ESP and that way if I decide to use race tyres later on I wouldn't have lost points from these earlier events.

^truth spoken there...i really want to enter a few d&w events also this year ( while not missing a dex) and that is proving to be very challenging, especially when most d&w events are usually the following weekend..

This is true for me, better yet if I could have someone with a red flag run ahead of the car, it's difficult to remember the course when you getting senile. Thank God for the markings on the gear shift knob. @#$, I now realise why I missing gears, my gear shift knob dosen't have any markings.

Thanks to CARS and its executive for a well executed event. There seemed to be a healthy number of entrants today and it was a nicely designed course which proved to be a challenge for me. I put so much thought into the harder parts of the course that I took it for granted that I didn't need to double check the 'easy' part (the gates to switch to lap 2/finish).

Unfortunately I wasn't able to stay to complete my last 2 runs though. It appears that one of the consequences of having 6 runs (which I really enjoy) instead of 4 this year is that it takes a little longer for all groups to complete their runs. It was about 5:30 and I had already planned to leave by this time. Perhaps I'll free up my evening for future events to ensure I'm able to make the 6 runs as well as stick around for the prize giving.

I certainly enjoyed myself as usual though and look forward to the club's next event.

based on your performance, I suspect your shifter has two markings: fast and BLOODY FAST :!:
