Pre-Race Questions
1.  Moving from the wide-open track to a small track, what will be the keys for your team to finish well this week in Richmond?
2.  Knowing that the cautionfest from last week is not the norm for PRL, Do you think we will have more or less than 4 cautions?
3.  Have you tried the new Rally Racing and what are your thoughts on it?
(These are the unofficial Pre-Race Questions....I just dont like the blank page!)

Pre-Race Questions
1.  Moving from the wide-open track to a small track, what will be the keys for your team to finish well this week in Richmond?

Consistency and non-aggressive driving will be the key in the early stages......track position in the latter stages.

2.  Knowing that the cautionfest from last week is not the norm for PRL, Do you think we will have more or less than 4 cautions?

Less....im calling for caution free.

3.  Have you tried the new Rally Racing and what are your thoughts on it?

Just briefly, but from what I have done so far its been fun.  Alot of wrecking but that is to be expected from a new racing discipline paired with iRacings real life physics.  I think the racing will get better after a season.

Spent yesterday preparing my rig for Rally!

1. Braking points are different. Some people miss them...
2. There will be plenty, not really that upset at last week for cautions, one big caution just was catastrophic. It happens.
3. YUP!!! It's a BLAST. Lots of banging and bumping and Iracing seems to have actually gotten the incidents somewhat figured out for that style of racing.

Well I think that you know the limits of your car and, what it will do over 30 laps. 

2.  Knowing that the cautionfest from last week is not the norm for PRL, Do you think we will have more or less than 4 cautions?
I think we will see a nice green flag run early about 25-35. I also think that will be the norm till the closing laps, though I would like to see us do a 40+ run to see who has what on the long run.

3.  Have you tried the new Rally Racing and what are your thoughts on it?
I have loads of fun would be better with a hand break, but I definitely get that rookie feeling, from that " what the hell is car going to do now" sort of thing. In addition I really like the over all build so far, and I think the new pit road changes are the going to shake things up the 1st stop.
