Thanks Steve,

Anyone know whether we still get 2 practice and 2 timed, or 1 practice and 3 timed? This is what we got at Ty Croes and Castle Combe which I prefer

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Ironically a GTE with a Honda engine will weigh less than an s2000. Probably with less oversteer :oops:

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Race Chrono

It does depend on the quality of your GPS. Obviously comparisons between runs and events are valid. Helps me decide when to stay in 3rd, go to 4th etc. I presume you get speeds at points on the track overview, and graphs of speed against time?
