    A pleasure as always, gentlemen. :)

    R1 was bloody brilliant. Lots of small battles......Yes, we were fighting for the honour of P17, but hey, racing's racing. :D

    R2 was a complete shambles. I was getting tired and losing my concentration, plus I made the classic mistake of loading a new set-up right before race-start, which always ends well.
    End result; Lots of over-heating tires, tons of understeer, and about as much fun as a swift kick to the crotch. :roflmao:
    Ah well, all in good fun.

    Oh, and if by chance the designer of the Thruxton chicane is reading this......
    I will find you.
    I will hurt you.
    :D :p

    Two brilliant races. I really enjoyed both of them tremendously, it is a great combo. Sadly I ran out of talent on the second race going after @Sven-Arne Andersson in 13th place, getting a bit too close for comfort there for a moment, which made me overreact somewhat and lose a few positions I did not manage to gain back. But it is what it is :)

    Thanks everyone, it really was great fun! :thumbsup:

    Horrible set of races, dunno what the hell was going on. I had people passing me in the straights like I was stopped.

    Take a look at the replay of race 2, somewhere along the straights.
    Your throttle pedal position indicator is at 80% maximum!
    Pedals need recalibration.
    I had a similar issue recently so it's one I look out for.
    Now be responsible with all that extra grunt!
    Cheers,
    Dan
