Talking Tom Thumb Open Practice

With some issues arising with Mikes lap timer, today was simply an open practice day. It actually worked out better for me, as it allowed me the entire day to get laps in on all three classes, box stock, mod mr01 and mod mr02. I was also able to try some new tire combinations I have been wanting to try.

Today the setup was both technical and very fast. With 3 sections of straight, it really allowed us to work on cornering without the dreaded traction roll on the 01's. The Enzo's of course, had no problems with that.

Here is the pic. The "infield" section had a great rhythm to it, was a really fun track.

Last race of the series is scheduled for next Saturday. Can't wait.

That looks like one extremely fast track with a small break from wide-open throttle.
