    Seems to me the more power people have the slower they go.
    I was being held up by cars with double the power id got.

    Less cars per session and shorter sessions are the way to go i think. Unless it's wet I run out of rubber before the session ends anyway.

    this is why i love the longer sessions the last 5 min its just me and 3 or 4 others, get to push the car really hard and not have to worry about people going slow.

    Lex I know it's tough to keep everyone happy but there is not a single person here who thinks 125 cars is a good idea. I think the idea of 100 cars over 5 groups is a better shout and I'm sure everyone will agree with that over the other idea.

    Are people skidding the entire course? If they're just skidding the BDC bit would it not be better to just que on the track and run that part? Gets rid of a lot of complaints about people being slowed up and people coming round the corner and top speed into traffic. Maybe just for the novice group or something

    The back corner is well worth skidding would be a shame not to have it.

    The group was a joke man. Too many people in the groups for them to run better.

    The track is 3/4 mile long and theres only 24 cars out there. People just arent prethinking what they are doing the most obvious example is after a red flag everyone just races off in one big pack instead of waiting a second or two and creating a gap. You could have 10 cars on the track and youd still all just follow each other like lemmings

    If i'm in a pack i just back off abit (no crying at me saying waaa going slow ect, i don't mean i pull over and have a brew i still go fast other wize you make ur own pack haha)

    i just back off abit for one or 2 corners that makes a nice gap and jobs a gooden.... and the back corner is alota fun defo keep it full track.

    People slowing u up ???
    ur joking aint ya i got about 3-4 videos and in them ur holding people up with various people nearly hitting u up the arse, and them 3-4 other people have either done a quick tire change and went back out or they are in the wrong group if u go out in the correct group for ur skill level/car then u wont have to worrie about slowing people up every courner
