You blokes sure keep strange hours ... but I'm glad to be #16!

 

Jeez, should I rename this thread to the Official trash talking thread?

 

Hey, he started it! Us visitors are quite frankly appalled!

 

All kidding aside, given this remarkably close group of cars, I can't wait to see the completion of data on the Home Page Entrant's information, along with the pictures of the final fellas to show up.

 

Time to grab some zzzz's over here - some of us still have to go work on Friday ... :)

Not wishing to be seen to be clutching at straws but I just checked and there are,

2x #1

3x #5

3x #4

2x #6

How do you decide which car with the same number goes first?. If that is up for grabs baggy second of the #1s.

I'm happy for my car to be one of the first to qualify. That way it goes out early on a slippery track and sets a slow qualifying time. Since all the quick qualifiers race first my (slow) car gets to run much later - when there's more rubber laid down and therefore should work better in the race where it counts.


May the downforce be with you.

Alphabetically by the name that is engraved on the bottom of the chassis....Looks like Martin better not have someone else on his number.

 

Look, dont fret about the track being slippery. Apart from my cleaning indescretion, the thing is rather well rubbered up now.

 

Oh, & dont forget, qualifying counts for squat (just looks good)

I expect this sort of coverage of the DUPR.

 

 

This is the GT cars in Italy last weekend. I can even see my BMW at the start!

Oh no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :P

 

Now we'll probably have to see Hoffy "rubbering in or up the track" :)

 

Umm,,,,,,,,,, perhaps best not to go there

Hey Alan, just an idea. How about getting all the entrants to send you a copy of their mug shot to be posted together with their car specs? :) This way, it'll give everyone an idea of the bloke behind the car instead of an impersonal name on the forum. It would add a personal touch to the whole series and promote a closer comaraderie amongst those of us who are competing in the DUPRS. :) O.K., o.k., I realise most of us aren't going to win the Mr. Photogenic contest, but we wouldn't be slot racing if we did, would we? :P:lol: :lol: :lol:

Naah, but it might make the proxy drivers drive better if they realised they had to answer to a gorilla if they crashed and damaged his car. :):lol:

OK, post qualifying report

 

HMCsat chassis was fixed during the week, after discovering a broken chassis during offical practice. The car now appears to be working fine

Manic95's car appears to have a failing pinion gear. A message will be sent to Manic to ask what he would like done

 

Cheers

Thanks to Lenny & Hoffy for the qualifying results. Wow, man, the Lola's done much better than I expected! Congrats to BeeJay for taking pole. All I can say is that I had a very good basic car to work with, so didn't need to do very much with it. So can't say the good qualifying result is due to my "wizard" set up work. :)

Well done lenny and hoffy and thanks very much. I am very, very surprised to see the Ferrari that far up the grid, did someone fit a qualifying engine?.
