    No money, no team racing.

    I think I am gonna give this a try. I'm not a big fan of these cars and this track. But I haven't raced for a while andt my racing addiction needs a fix!

    At first I didn't think I was going to enjoy this race, because at the first P1, I had big trouble having control of the car. Of all of cars, the BMW CSL seemed more stable so I sticked to it. But it didn't matter what kind of setup I had. There was just no difference. I tried many combos, even exaggerated everything that you can change. In P2 and Q I found a setup that worked, but I knew I was going to work hard to even be competitive. A goal I wasn't even considering at the point. Not on a serous level anyway.
    Had a decent Q but always lost time in sector 2-3.

    Anyway, on to the race. Got an amazing start. Even had the lead for a while. But since I knew the car was behaving like an elephant on ice, I was soon passed by 4 cars. So back to my starting position and it was more or less just about trying to finish the race.

    2nd race. Oh my, what a great start I had again. had the lead for 3 and half laps. Somehow the car worked much better. But, after 3 and half lap, I got passed, and I kept doing small mistakes, and took unnecessary risks and had to fight like a maniac to keep the car some what stable again. Had a nice fight with someone, and I kinda felt like brake block in some parts of the track. But I always left room incase he was able to pass me when we were alongside each other at some points.

    In both races I even spun of the track. But race 2 was really fun.

    I never really got my BMW handling well either, tried all through Q and warmup. I could not get the rearend to help me in the corners,

    It did launch well though!
    R1 just another galaxy in the universe as everyone pulled away or dropped behind.
    R2 Matthias didn't make it right to the front and the whole race changed. I could see cars in front for most all of the race, encouraging but no banana :)

    I was doing my first run on this retro mod, since i saw there was Opel and i am driving one i chose that one and stuck with it until i found good setup. @Daniel Linder is saying the setup didn't played a role that much, however i think otherwise, but yet i haven't tried the other cars, so i i can't tell how much difference there was between the cars.

    I totally agree with him that the car felt like a "elephant on ice" haha true!
    I changed some stuffs in the setup and got used to it, in FP i did 2:21 while in the Q with the same setup i did unknowingly 2:20 and the next lap S1 i was driving it by -1.061 faster and by the end of S2 we proceeded to WarmUp, however when loaded the fuel it got much worse, and then someone rang on my door haha then i spun and hit the wall on the right in T1 and i was finished and i couldn't continue for the R2

    All in all i am happy with 4-5th time for the first time, not that bad, next time gonna try other cars :D

    Had nice time and i hope next time we can gather much much more

    My biggest mistake in all races was big hit to Matthias. After watching the replay I saw that it was second bump for Matthias from me, but I never felt first contact between us. Sorry Matthias for both of them.. :(
