We've a child at a party that requires picking up and we've not as yet eaten dinner. I suspect once we've got her and eaten we'll be sitting down to watch Dr Who. Not sure how this is going to happen time wise so feel it's best myself and Martok cry off this evening. Sorry.

Had some very close racing again last night, and it was really good fun again.

However it left me really confused... for the last few weeks I have been selecting and tuning my car at the same track, and each time I have been very competitive, and found a fast car which handled well, and set fast laps both in practise and the race.

I did exactly the same for this week, but for some reason was way off the pace on the night, up to 5 or 6 sec per lap in practise, and nowhere in the race. This made no sense to me, as I tried and discounted the R8 loopy was using as it was maybe 5 seconds slower than the pace of the Bentley.

Then when I changed to the Audi TT and the Jag I was back on the pace... I bet if I took the Jag around my practise track it would be well off the pace of the Bentley.

I can't get my head around this, if I were an F1 team boss I would be talking about a loss of correlation.....lol
