    Golden Rule
    • Be 100% sure it's not his fault and just carry on like nothing happened and take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
    • Play on the safe side and wait for the affected drivers, knowing 100% sure you will not get a ban.

    Hi Guys,signing up for this one an try to get my drive back :unsure:
    Rupe, I saw you post yesterday so a bit late wish my reaction,

    4 weeks ago I hat an accident, was driving on my bike to get a newspaper by the local super an on my way back close to home I get hit by a car from behind, get on the hood an broke the window, then the car brakes an launched me on the street. Went to the hospital by ambulance an woke up there not knowing where I was an what hat happened. I still don't know what have happened that day, what I know is told me an cant remember.

    Luckily I had nothing broken, had a light concussion an a lot of abrasions, looking at that I had a lot of luck :)
    Have to go to the hospital to day for a check up.
    See you all this evening, clad an hope to drive out the race;)

    Wow Hans, hope you are feeling OK?
    I will put you on the list buddy, but if you can't finish the race, it's OK. :)

    Thanks to @Ripe Wilson for the event and to @Stuart Thomson for the pre-race help and also for the setup which matched well with my driving style. My pace was a bit better than my normal rate. Also a welcome back to @Hans Sneep. Grats to podiums and cheers to all drivers.

    As I said to the boys on TS yesterday, once you find a setup that you like / works best, be it my one, your own one, whatever - Save it and Keep it. Use it. Every time. The only things you can change in these cars are pretty much how the tyres heat up. Once you're happy, you're done. I save my Cat setups (one for the Classic, one for the Academy) in the top level of the Settings folder rather than in a track folder, so it's always there for me, knowing that nothing will change on it.

    If the car behaves the same and is predictable, all you need to learn is the track.
