Congrats Mario! Excellent job.
This was one of those rare occasions I had a chance to beat Mario. I had a good setup from the GT mod. I know the track well. I had a car advantage. And I've shown some good speed here in the past. That still wasn't enough to win one. I hit a hedge at Deer's Leap thus losing the lead. Luckily the car still worked well. I followed Mario for a while but couldn't match his speed out of the last turn. I needed to tail him closely there if I wanted a good chance to pass on the straight. Finally, I lost it at the turn before the pit places we used. I broke through a hedge and couldn't get out of the field without a reset. I was pleased to finish while following the rules posted on Funliga's website.
Those were good lap times for a Mirage. I don't think I could get close to that. I might set a little faster lap next time, but my odds of beating Mario will probably be lower. I'm going to need to drive well and be very consistent to have any chance. My work will be much easier with such a nice car as the Ferrari.
Take care guys and thanks for letting me race with you.
