  3. That was a fun race. Too bad only 16 drivers showed up but the race was fantastic.

    I started in 12th (around were I expected) but at the green flag I got such a great run on the guy infront of me and had to back of a little to not pass before the line.. That made the guy behind me hit as he must have not been prepared for that. So, I made a 1080 into the wall before I even got to the start line :D I lost quite some time but judge by my surprise - my car was pretty much unhurt! So, I set my aim on the guy infront and from then on I had a really fun and competetive race. I ended in 9th with a two-stopper.

    Grats Robin for the win! I really look forward to the season now :)
     
  4. I join the server at the end of the qualy time, no run so I was in the last position of the grid. I start with Hard tires and 100 liters of fuel, after 15-16 laps my tires was 30% gone and the car poorly drivable. I anticipated the pit and rejoin the track with Soft tires ... so much better ... 1 sec faster and more grip. Unfortunately I had to go to the pit lane for a stop&go. Tires were good for 15 laps after then the grip was poor. I finished the race with 27%! engine end 40-45% tires remaining.
    Thanks guys for the fun race.

  5. Thanks ALL who joined tonight, I hope you had fun. We proved to have a great material for this upcoming seasson and I expect it to be a blast, and maybe the best seasson since STC started. The cars look terrificly (...if that word does exists :tongue:...) well, and the broadcasts will be fantastic.

    Now, I need some feedback about tyres and engine wear. How was it for you guys?
     
  6. I decided to go 1 stop on the softs....after 30 mins i recieved my first tyre warning, so i thought my plan was up in the air, i carried on for another 10 mins before i pitted but this left me a longer 2nd stint on softs, which was a bit scary......anyway carried on regardless and recieved my 1st tyre waring with 20 mins to go....i was unsure weather to pit or just keep going, i decided to keep going as i was in 1st place and if i pitted i would have dropped to 4th after pitting....i recieved some more tyre warnings but to my amazment the tyres held out nicely :) i did have to drop a few seconds a lap but i was happy to do that as only Robin was able to catch me, Well done Robin, nice drive mate :)

    Overall i was really happy with the softs, i dont know about the engine ware as i dont use xd, but i forgot to put radiator back to 3 after Quali so that tells me the engine was fine :)

    This is the 2nd test i have done and so far i have no complaints...if anything only compliments, nice 1 guys, im sure this will be a fantastic season.
     
  7. Not a single problem this night. I have done only 1 pit and i have to say it was the hell to finish the race! I enjoyed the chase with Robin Johansson in the first part, and with Adam Shaw later.
    Now i have to find a magic setup in order to control easily this beast car :)
     
  8. this is my main problem too ;) if you find one ... tell me ;)
     
  9. Really?
    I dont want to brag but i find it a easy car to drive. Even when i use Greg his setup? :D

    Yes, it seems for some people the car is very difficult to drive and others find it very easy, I think it has to do with driving style :)
     
  11. Enjoyed this one, one of my fav. tracks.

    Missed quali session, almost got a lap in but was just to late.
    Started from back, worked my way up as best as possible, got my first tire warning on softs on lap 13 changed to a 2 stop stratagey.
    On the second time in to the pitts I dropped a gear to quickly trying to loose speed, and blew the engine.

    Had some good fights on the way incluiding as Gregory mentioned a good encounter later in the race.

    Pity about the lack of drivers but at least there was no lag like the last time.
    Looking forward to a full series with these, should be close racin all the way !
    Cheers.
