Today was a ton of fun, but there were a couple of strange incidents.

A guy pretty much totaled a McLaren coming onto the straight that has the bridge over it.

That crash was ridiculous. We didn't see it until after the fact, but there was enough force to knock over one of the huge concrete barrier blocks. I never would have expected that as I always assumed that you were relatively safe behind one.

Let's not forget the blown Z06 motor that ended my group's sesssion in lap 2.

Yeah, this Stohr F1000 is very low. In a night event, I'm sure we'd see sparks fly.

Oil on the track?

I don't think that was the case when I came across him. I went 1.49.1 and I passed him fairly easily. Plus on the straights it was losing lots of ground to me. Maybe he ran that time some other day. I guess we will know once the results are posted.

Oh, you drove a GT-R, yeah? Philip's buddy?

The Stohr had vibrations problem with the front tires that day and couldn't go full out.

Pretty sure the owner said it has a top speed of only ~135 mph due to drag so I wouldn't be surprised if it was losing lots of ground to you in the straights

Thanks. I passed him on the infield, and never saw him again during that session. He came back into the pits after me so I know he was still out there.

Ahh That makes sense. Looked pretty mean sitting in the pits.

Yeah. I don't think it has much power for acceleration either. Like I mentioned I passed him in the infield on turn 5-6. He dropped back quite a bit on the straight after turn 6. My GTR is stock aside from mid pipe and wider tires.
