So far so good

The weather has gone from heavy rain, to light showers and now 'cloudy'

Keep praying guys! Lets hope it swings round a bit further and gives us some sun!

At nurburgring perhaps... can't see it causing people not to go on track at combe, since they've already paid there money.

Rain is alright, most people will mince in the rain so the 'committed' people can get past them all with ease, but it just makes it boring as you want to take corners flat out at the limit (like in the dry) but instead you have to add some uncertainty about whether the car will grip this time or slide off the track

you and fad need to decide between you guys on what session you're coming out in...

basically you both want to go out on passenger laps before your 12:30...

so I've got a 10:30 and 11:45.

I personally feel (especially if it's wet) I'll be finding my feet at the 10:30, I've got different gear ratios, different tyres and new problems with my car since last time... so I'm just gonna take it easy and gradually build up the pace in this session...

Fad wants me to go quick So I've said to him he'll probably be better suited in the 11:45.

but that said, I'm probably more likely to crash at 10:30 when my ditch finder 35 tyres decide to understeer me into quarry.

The choice is yours (and fads)

fight.

yeh I think it'll work against him to be honest. If I was a examiner i'd think fuck this, skim read a bit and just go F.

He messed up a bit on his other modules so is trying to pull his whole mark up with the final year project / project report.

It's our Computer Science Final year Project - so we had to code something substaintial, now this is the report showing intro, research, problem domain, specification, requirements analysis, design, implementation, testing, etc.

but basically it's explaining in depth how it all works, how the algorithms perform, etc with loads of diagrams and stuff.

v.dull to read and write.
