1.Halfway through the season, have your thoughts on these cars Changed?

Nope i Could race these cars every night and still find them awesome and Challenging!!!!


2.Do you feel confident racing at night? how does it affect your racing?

Yeah for the most part obviously it adds a new element to an already challenging event. It affects me by having to rely more on memory for a lot of the darker corners/ sections of the track.

3.What are your thoughts on this track?

I like it. One of the ones I always forget how much i like. Lots of deceptive corners, even the ones that look like you gotta crawl around you can probably fly around.

Pre-Race Interview

1.Over Half way done with this season, Have your thoughts on these cars changed?
I came in late into the season, but actually really like these LMP900's. They have it all with speed, grip, and handling. Would like any of the LMP series cars at any track.
2.Do you feel confident racing at night? How does it affect your racing?
Night racing is ok with me as long as the track is fairly lit up. Learning the lines becomes even more important at night and markers are very beneficial too. Night seems to be a little easier on the tire temps.
3.What are your thoughts on this track?
I like this track because it has it all and some tricky corners also, especially the double apex near the end. After heading into the sun set and then hitting this corner, it takes a lot of experimentation to find the best line there. Might have to watch some ghost runs to see what others are doing there.

Got my relief to swap to nights and allow me to work days, I will be there.

A) I always liked the Prototype's. Easy car to drive in my opinion.

2.Do you feel confident racing at night? How does it affect your racing?

A) I enjoy night racing. I usually like to get more practice so I learn my marks, but if I remember correctly the lighting at this track is pretty good.

3.What are your thoughts on this track?

A) This is a tough but fun track.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Yes my thoughts on these have changed.  At first I thought they would be another class where 1-2 guys just killed everyone and lapped the field.  These cars are closer than I thought this class would have been.  I really like that there are 3 different manufacturers and the each have a strength and weakness on every track.  Last race I could keep up with the fast  guys on the straights and even gain ground, but I got whipped on the slow twisty section.  So good job for not making us run identical cars.   [/font][font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I am still finishing -1 lap typically, but a lot of that has been my unforced error at some point of the race.  At least with these cars I feel as if I have a chance at finishing on the lead lap.  [/font]

I really like these cars at night. I feel fairly confident.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]3.What are your thoughts on this track?[/font]

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I really like this track.  It is the first track I raced in this league and at that time I was about -10sec per lap off the leaders.  I think there are a few places on the track that you can get caught and tagged with a penalty and think "WTF?"  But everyone has the same track to run.  [/font]

1. Half way through the season, have your thoughts on these cars changed?
I believe so. They were very twitchy and hard to read at first. Since this is my rookie year, I never jumped into one of these before, but have done a lot of development. These cars are quite enjoyable

Do you feel confident racing at night? How does it affect your racing?
NO. I have poor short term memory & excellent for long term. I would be tempted to tail someone, but that only makes them nervous so...

What are your thoughts on this track?
This is entirely new to me. The majority of these corners are decreasing radius, which means hitting the apex perfectly is vital or a lot of overtaking is going to happen. I've also started playing with viscous lock and managed to shave off 2 seconds. So appearently, the diff is a big deal here with changing radius on slow corners.
