Some good racing and actually could do it again no probs and still enjoy it, enduro events really brings out patience or lack of in overtaking and pit stop strategies and would like to see more enduro events (even if there was a time out half way through a race where all drivers stop take a rest room break and resume under a safety car)

Went from 2nd to 8th after first pit stop as something special happened and my car fully just spun around and put me into the wall upon exiting pits, maybe had a mass lag spike or something as still not sure what it was, so trying to get out of that and reversing of the wall caused the second safety car as damaged the swatdx I think in my attempt to get my car back onto track, so pitted again under the safety car, two mandotory pit stops out of the way right and free run to line with near 20 laps to go on the same tyres, should be right I can do this so managed to make my way back through the field with some cars in front having to pit while pushing my vette hard and got myself back into 2nd, nope no way got informed that pitting under a safety car didn count as a pit stop with 6laps to go I had to pit again!!(not allowed to pit in the last 5 laps of the race) Lost my concentration and momentum got spun with a full 360 coming onto to the top of the mountain but somehow didn cop any real damage and then proceded to crash into pit entry which was my third time pitting trashing my car(after race and discussion turns out didn need to make the third pit stop, really really did that just happen), race was lost after that and put me back to 8th only to get back into 7th and then to damage my car again on the last lap loosing a lot of time but nope the gods are against you so for there final say on the very last corner of the last lap got some more contact from behind pushing me back to 8th..'OMG', but with all that and the frustrations at myself from the highs of being in podium contention twice to back to the disappointments finishing 8th I still really  enjoyed it, the highs and lows of racing all packed into the one nights racing.

Also recorded the whole race on a capture device but might wait and see what others come up with first before editing 1.5hrs of video, love the corvettes rear view in dash cam.

Will look forward to similar events as these cars were easyish to drive with no assists on the wheel (slowly getting used to it, a good set of pedals have helped) and hope we can get a full room with more drivers tearing the tracks apart on FM5.

yeah just find out what speed you reach down any straight and lower the final drive to that speed but but leave a few extra kms for slipstream.
