Watched quite a few vids of paddock hill..looks a very technical corner...in the wet you see the cars just peel off the circuit when they lose grip.

You have to line yourself up way before you even see the corner, and yes a huge amount fall off.

Last year in the drivers briefing we were told they had four different cars crash on the Saturday.

A BMW promptly came out the pits to qualify went  straight down Paddock  Hill and rolled  ???

Car looked, well, abit "wobly"... Suspension setup or tyres? Comments Sir?

Nice fight with that red car. He did go sideways in few corners, when trying to keep up with you... But that white car, what a h was that, MGB? It was super fast...

Anyhoo, good job Sir  :13: :sign0098:

As above I will probably up the spring rates but as for wobbly, this was probably where I was up on the kerbs, at one stage coming down from Druids I took too much kerb and it threw the car up in the air and across the road, decided  not to try that again ;D

As for the white car, god knows how much money went into that car,  as he had the car inside one of the best F1 style transporters I have ever seen!

Darn, just missed the live commentary, but the qualifying and first race stats/results are here:

https://www.tsl-timing.com/file/?f=BRSCC/2019/193731nip.pdf

Clive started 4th on the grid and finished 4th. The 3 cars in front finished in the first 3 places.

Not bad, but the good news is that Clive got the fastest lap time on lap 7 of 17  :sign0098:

Those two Clios and the Civic Type R will be a challenge in Clive's 2nd race (scheduled for 5pm), but I'm sure Clive's up for it :)
