Round 9: Indy Dual in Vancouver (sanctioned by CART) Saturday & Sunday Grands Prix 173.8 miles around Pacific Place [2.742 km (1.704 mi) / 102 laps]
Driver: #9 Raul Boesel (Brazil) Team: Dick Simon Racing (USA) Chassis: Lola T93 Engine: FordXB GP2 power: 810/830HP (R/Q) GP2 weight: 750kg (1654lbs) GP2 tire grade: D (super soft) GP2 failure rate: 9740/32767 (29.73%) GP2 difficulty: Ace (no driver aids) Website: http://gp2.sharoma.com Control: $10 Logitech Precision gamepad
The transmission failed running a moderate 7th. Since there is nowhere safe to stop (and any failure can be fixed if you box the car), I tried to roll or get 'bumped' into the pits. This failed and unfortunately was just as unsafe as stopping dead. As for racing here, grip is minimal; even on super soft tires, the wear rate means that after ten laps you have to be very careful. The track surface is extremely slippery, especially going into turn 1 and in the high speed chicanes. Fuel consumption is also high, running at about 1.3 laps per lap. On top of that, the other cars are noticeably quicker down the straight, especially the Penske machines. Paul Tracy simply could not be caught, only held up. Although I managed to set a 59.3 in warmup, my race pace was about two seconds slower than Tracy because he could consistently lap under a minute (and he set an unbeatable 57.714s in qualifying). Thus he deserves the victory. Had my transmission not failed on lap 61, I could've held 5th place or definitely finished inside the top ten, mistakes notwithstanding. So, that's race one. The good thing about dual events is at least you get to have another try...
