BMW Z8 - Round 1 Race Report & Stories!

Post by HaydieT on Thu Feb 28, 2013 1:22 am

Round 1 was a corker! Already looking forward to round 2, the report for round 1 will be up tomorrow but feel free to talk about how you thought your round 1 went! Smile

I'll start, Race 1 I started 2nd behind EMW Raul, I followed him for a lap until he set of into the distance and kept my distance from allanrocha in 3rd! Pretty Lonely I must say but enjoyed it none the less!

Race 2 I started 13th and pulled my way up to 9th before a little incident in front of me held me up pushing me back down to 12th. Lap 2 coming into the second braking zone I noticed 3 cars going along at slower than race pace, I thought I'd try a crazy move around the outside with ended horribly wrong, not anybody's fault but mine! I then came back through the pack and after overtaking S2M Evo on lap 15 managed to secure the 2nd place. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for Round 2 at what I see to be my favourite track, Road America! Very Happy:D

haven't bonded with the car yet... and that track is one i never drive, so was never going to be quick

race 1 i was doing ok until i car rear ended giving me enough damage to fall to the back

race 2 i slowly got pushed aside by faster drivers... not a memorable night for me

I ended up with a strange mixture last night.

Before the pole setting i hated the car,,could not get my tune dialed in at all,,was stuck firmly in the mid-high 31`s and was frustrated.

However, Maddog was kind enough to sort me out with his tune and was a trasformation,,the car actually went where i wanted it.

So,,had a go and came out fourth fastest,,,,result!!

Race one: cocked up my start a little,,but managed to get off and found a bit of cleantrack in forth position,,,nice one,,and i set about catching up with Allan.

I closed the gap down on him only to throw it all alway as a lag spike showed is car infront of me and then for a split second he flashed back to being half inside my car!! I crapped myself,,and slapped the brakes on,,,,,,,only to discover he was back to his original positon on the track!! but i had lost a bit of distance so spent the rest of the race chasing him down,,,,which sadly he was showing too much spped for me to do so. Bravo allan! Very Happy

Second race i was back towards the back of the pack for the off,, and felt quite comfortable with the task as hand. I set off and managed to pick my way through the field, making good progress until lap 4,,,where an incident occured which took me out of contention of the chase. Was forced to pit early and the race was effectivly over. Was pissed at the time but these tihngs happen i suppose.

But,,al in all i like the car a lot more than i thought i was gonna. I dont really like RWD but u have to put yourself out ur comfort zone i suppose to learn.

Have to say though,,Maddog and EWM Raul showed blinding pace last night.....Was a pleasure to see the times they were posting as to race against chaps of that standard can only help raise all our collective games to the challenge!!

Like Andy, am not a huge fan of Indianapolis, the first corner is horrid with no real markers to speak of and too much of the track can be nibbled before the lap is dirty,,,,but thats just my POV.

Anyways,,,for next week i intend to get a lot more practice in,,,so beware,,,i will likely be slower! Embarassed

G cheers
