V8SC3 – HDCP Bathurst – 5 lap practice race Damage on, collision off, mandatory pit
T 1:42. P R – failed to pit!
After initial REFUSAL by Raw & Parts to partake in a 40 lap race, much discussion and negotiation took place until they were eventually convinced that the only way to truely honour the drivers and put ourselves in their seat to see what it’s like to race the big race, was to try the untried mamoth marathon.
40 LAPS … mandatory pit stop, Damage ON, Collision OFF (negotiated)
Tone: Total time 1:13.10 – Fastest Lap 1:45.13 Raw: Total time 1:13.59 – Fastest lap 1:44.91 Parts: DNF – Fastest lap 1:48.97
Tone in his “Pig’s Arse” homebrew sponsored Falcon pitted twice during the race, while Raw pitted three times, mucking the first one up and contentiously trying to claim victory because of his unfortunate lack of skill. On lap 36, Tone was leading and his tyres were wearing badly with Raw about half a lap behind. Tone decided to risk all by continuing on, nursing his tires to the end. This caused his only bad scrape with the wall on lap 38 when things got rather slippery and sideways, which produced a bit of damage and reducing his lap time even further, but he managed to hang on for a convincing victory after more than an hour of solid racing to claim the well deserved title, “King of the mountain”. While this was all going on, Parts had been lapped 3 times before he decided to drive his car into the ground by refusing to pit and undergo repairs after a major misshap. He ended up sitting beside the track with 3 blown tyres.
We can neither confirm nor deny that Black Ops was played, or whether Raw caned our collective assses.
