First stint ever in a GTP car is over

First stint over and we are 5 hours into the race.
We have lost 1:st gear but we are in 17:th place.
I´m going to bed.

Practise and some news.

Back from the track again, same laptimes and no problems running.
The bad new is that we are down to 7 drivers so we can´t use 3 cars.
We´ll be using the #2 and #4 car for the race. We are 5 drivers in car #2
and I got the honour of driving 3 stints unless something happens during the race.

Preliminary times, all in CET:

Driving:
18:00 - 20:00
06:00 - 08:00
12:00 - 14:00

Shotgun/replacement driver:
16:00 - 18:00
04:00 - 06:00
10:00 - 12:00



That´s all folks for now, I´m off to bed.

Practise, practise, practise....

Yes, it´s me again.
Had a good session last night. One hour and 20 minutes of ok driving.
Avg lap 3.40-ish.

4 days to go!

It´s goin to be interesting too see if the Saubers really have that probplem with their engine lifespan. They are about 5-7 secs faster.

Good news and not so good news

I´m back. After 2 weeks of XP and Server 2003. And the not so good news is that we still haven´t
got any new drivers. The good news is that I can run with 60 tape and 3.37 or better and keep that elusive 3.40 racepace :-). Starting to get a bit exited, only 10 days left...

Missing drivers...


Hi,

Well practice goes on and I´m not improving really. Going for a fueltest with 80 tape on the car Tuesday morning. Just got the word from my teamboss that we are still lacking drivers. We desperately need two more drivers. So I´m using all my connections to get hold of someone that can drive. But this cool picture just arrived in my mailbox. One of our team cars #6, the one I drive in.

Short practise report

Qual setup 3.39 despite the fact that I´m tired. 3.40 avg.
Race setup, not geared properly yet, 2:nd and 3:rd is not tall enough.
3.41.

Objective: Get down to racepace below 3.40.

And I´m getting there slowly. :)

Tonights practise

Ho ho ho! I am so pleased tonight, did 9 laps with a new setup and behold!
3.37.9 and a new PB. And I feel that I have more to give in this car. The interesting part is that I should be able to keep a 3,40 race tempo with small modifications on the setup (grille tape, gearing).

Firewall trouble...

Yesterday was full of troubles. :( I did manage to get a new PB on Lemans, but a couple of hours later my firewall gave upp on me. Or should I say its harddrive. And I had no new harddrives that the really old computer could use. I was using an old P166 as my Smoothwall, three years of perfect service and now it´s gone. After several hours I had assembled a "new" one. So no driving for me. I wasn´t finished until after 0300 in the night. Hopefully I can drive some more laps tonite
and get that elusive 3.35 I´m after.
