    An interesting 1st race of the series and the car mod. When I tested the mod at Donington Park, I don't recall it having the big wheel-spinning under power at the hairpins, as it did here at Magny-Cours, or the snap-oversteer if you didn't get the downchange perfectly synchronised going into the same type of corner. I had to do some work on the gear ratios to try and tame that.
    With the 45m race, the front tyre grip/wear also came into play (for nearly everyone I think?) with the traction out of the hairpins and braking into them too. It certainly gave me a lot of food for thought before the next race at Hockenheim.

    Oh and the Fuel mileage is also a key factor over 45m, as sadly Fodor discovered :( Still not sure how/why he hadn't kept track of that during the race??
