I've has declared himself happy with the first practice session for Season 3, at Brandh Hatch this evening. I lapped in 1:22.099s for third place behind 2011 Star Mazda world champion Lawrence Smythe and iRacing regular front runner Andrew Cowell.
Importantly for me, a B class driver, I was the first the B class drivers and ahead of real life V8 Supercar regular David Besnard. I even think there's plenty more to come there is plenty more to come, after setting an optimal time of 1:21.622 and missing 15 minutes of setup time in the session after an iRacing error denied me access to the Garage with a "Bad setup file" error. I'm also yet to refine setup work and will continue development of a qualifying setup through the week, before focussing on a race setup on Friday/Saturday.
I'm also not concerned about the two second gap to Lawrence Smyth. He's an Alien, and a Star Mazda world champion from 2011, so he's not where I'm aiming this season, only my second. My focus is on reducing my time by about another half a second.
I've also debuted my new paint scheme. I like it :)
