It’s sounding less and less like racing, more and more like entertainment. Or a TDS rally. Or a group of guys at a strip club.

Steve, you may be onto something. I've never seen those three guys smiling so much as after Barber.

uh oh :(  Barber was not much of a test in that regard..  
Planning on lifting 2/3 way on each straight and coasting into braking zones and short shifting everywhere and running as lean as I think we can stand.. We shall see. I think we can get close.. but only one way to find out

 

wow that sounds like a miserable way to drive for 14 hours

Maybe if you and other ball manipulating majors and super tour winners get more focused on the cool trophies in chump, the peepeeys champ can make SM great again by winning a Majors or super tour!

So in a dry race at that track and assuming equal reliability but predictably higher wear/consumables, how much faster would you need to lap so you could make one more stop and still come out aheard?

You need a new Emojis, Over all winner in Champ and Class winner in Champ.

 

Champ is a blast, tech is easy, the Champ Car people are awesome to deal with, any NA with a center kill switch can race but better sign up early almost all events fill up before the drop of the green. Mandatory 5 min pit stops, only allowed to do 2 hr stints per driver. 200 tread wear tires...

You want a job as race engineer.. Doesn't pay and the perks aren't very good :)

I think you are thinking of PCA/BMWCCA :)
