SRC 2021 Round 1 - March HSC

Postby Mark Fox » Mon Jun 21, 2021 1:14 pm

Hi All,

GT1

First round of the SRC series was a fast and furious affair with most punters using the new Hawk 9 motor (which is very quick indeed) in the GT1 race.

I just managed to beat Wayne - that will teach him to come off on the last lap.

It has happened to me in exactly the same circumstances a number of times - finishing on Red as cars hit the line on the bell lap you get a slight power increase which if you are heading into the corner at the bottom of the track can bring you undone.
