    Nice time! Hoping to better that tomorrow night. Until then, off to happy hour to drown my lack of good lap time sorrows in beer and whiskey.

    Lap times will likely be very close from everyone for this one, so a clean consistent race rather than ultimate lap time is key, if somebody is a few tenths faster you'll easily pull that back in slipstream.

    I agree BLADE... should be interesting.. I'm also around mid 1:46's on a good lap.. mid 1:47's on an average lap and 1:48's on a crap lap.. That first chicane is a bitch..

    Will there be a practice room set up today or tonight??? Anyone know??

    As you can see on post #1, the May Cup schedule has been released! I like it. Japan/GT500+GT3 race every other week! Should be an interesting month of racing :)

    I liked the post, but would like to point out that I'll be attending as well as being in that room/online for the rest of the day so people can hop in an out and practice. If Gurizzi needs to leave or something. I'll be on all night as well.

    Sorry that I had to leave just 10 min until the race was done, I really didn't expected dinner was ready so early and no I couldn't tell them to wait a bit longer because they're not into that, so i really apoligize for this. Nevertheless, congrats to whoever won the race.

    Anyone have the final points standings from the last Cup? I don't think it was posted.

    Thermite's Race Report

    Qualifying went really well. I got my fastest lap of the weekend by far. For a minute I thought I was going to start 2nd but I eventually fell back to 5th. Very impressive laps by those guys.

    The start was a typical Monza start (in a clean way). Just had to tip-toe through the first lap until the field spread out enough to start racing. I escaped with no damage and ended up in 6th for the start of lap 2. I got around Flash and then closed in on the front group of cars. I noticed gurizzi was falling back and I was able to pass him without much trouble. Gibbs was checking out as I closed on Fred and HEMI. Those two got to racing really hard and I guess they misjudged their speed into turn 1, overshooting the entry! I guess Fred got damage but HEMI didn't. I easily got around Fred, but I couldn't catch HEMI as he set his sights on gibbs. I was able to move into 2nd, however, after gibbs had a slight off in Parabolica. After all that excitement, I came into the pits with about 40 minutes to go. I changed to RH and put in just enough fuel to make it to my next stop. However, my pit crew wasn't at the top of their game! After they were done fueling, I wasn't released! After a few seconds, I decided to pause and unpause. It let me go. Not sure if that fixed it or if it was just a coincidence, but that was a bit of a setback nonetheless.

    I came out of the pits as gurizzi was coming down the frontstretch. We had a great battle on those RH! I believe we went side by side through the second chicane, Lesmo, Ascari, and Parabolica within a couple laps! Awesome hard yet clean racing! It went downhill for gurizzi after that, however. As gibbs was exiting the pits, gurizzi completely overshot turn 1 and slammed into the wall! So that took care of that I guess lol. Then I tried to hold off gibbs for a while, but he was able to get around me. As Fred closed in on me after trying to recover after getting that damage, gibbs lost it in Parabolica again. This time he slid completely sideways in the middle of the track :eek: I committed to the low side and barely squeaked by, as did Fred. I was then able to pull back away from Fred as he got to battling with brr383, but then he overshot turn 1 just like gurizzi did, basically ending his day. Soon after that, brr caught me. I assumed he was on RM because I could tell he was on a different strategy. As he got around me, I came in for my final stop with 21 minutes to go. Went back to RM and put in just enough fuel yet again. However, my pit crew botched it again and I had another slow stop.

    I came out behind BLADErunner and had a good battle with him. As the pit stops cycled through, I was now in 4th place. We were pretty equal, but once I caught him, he let me by. I later found out it was because he knew he had to pit one more time due to being low on fuel. So then I was back to 3rd and safely brought it home! That was a very fun race!
