Fred’s comments: “I was copping abuse for running into people, then because I try to miss them, I finish up on the grass, three times blocked in one race, sideswiped on Barbagallo by Tone – pushed into the grass [Tone was on the inside line]. I vote we go for normal grids instead of reverse grid, they’ve outlawed it in real life … or run a qualifiying lap before every race. Tone had his little “Mafia Mob” behind him.”

Evening faded to black around 1.30am.
Tone’s 2 cents:An evening which began with a late start and was marred by many an unfortunate in’"GAME" incident. Most, if not all, I’m sure were’nt deliberate acts of sabotage (except when I tapped Raw off for points – sorry!). It is only a game, meant to be enjoyed by all, yet seems to get taken by some so seriously in the heat of the moment. Is this the consequence of competing for a Trophy? Well let’s put away the Trophy, cause I just want to have some fun! And I did, despite being on the recieving end of some incidents myself 🙂
No shoot’em-ups ensued, so maybe next mission, we save some trouble and all just kill each other virtually instead.
See ya in a fortnight for some MORE MAYHEM !!
