    Brief highlights from last race:

    Zandvoort is bumpy to the max in these cars, must be horrendous in a real DTM car

  5. Zandvoort and DTM's....very hard to resist :D
    Still remember last year's race with this combo, was a blast :)

    If I can schedule it, im there...

  7. OK, I'm up for my first RD event. 8 weeks a Sim racer is my total talent :) and mostly WTCC at that.

    BEWARE! Hicc! :)

    I can keep it on the track most the time and will pay heed to who, what is around me.

    I have done some online stuff in the 'open' servers and I can run 'midfield' often enough.

    I have done a bit of running around with some of these beasty cars and I do OK. I ran Zandvoort earlier and my time was 1:35:xx. 4 secs off according to the above videos :-( Woe, is me!

    ...RayL

    Hmm? I just noticed all teh download Mod stuff?? I was on server earlier with DTM car. I assume therefor, I do not need to D/L anything?

    If you got on the server ok, no. I do recommend the default setups for fixing gear ratios though
     
  9. Thanks for response, Chris.

    I D/L setups that appear to be fine throughout the gear v track/car attitude.

    Sorry to be annoying, but the sign-in button isn't working for me.

    So I'll say I'm signing up here.
     
  14. Nice re-entry Chris ;)

    Car was total loss so i stopped driving. didn't want to wait for 20 minutes so i quited.

    Not so decent of me but i wasn't planning a replay night tonight.
     
  15. @Stefan,

    I was a little upset that in my first ever event I noticed that rather than leave a message regarding my 'nick' you instead voted to Kick me.
    I see further, that that you appeal here too.

    BTW, sorry to see you get disqualified from the server.

    A compliment from my side to Ray and some others who are rookies or nearly rookies @ RD for doing the whole event and not causing any trouble with these not easy but super fun cars :D
    8 and 5 finishers for the races isn't the best overall showing though for the grid, but still an enjoyable event.

    I personaly had a great time today and was surprised by my pace on a track where I had a few problems in the past.
    It is incredible how good this DTM-Mod feels and drives on every track I raced it on !

    Q: Quali was very nice. On my last lap I risked a bit more on the middle sector, trying to squeeze more out of that tricky part, as I already had a nice time which would have been enough for p2. It worked out and I found 3 extra tenths in that sector (2 for the lap) to push it to 1.32.0 and a pole position :)

    R1: Very good and solid race without any mistakes from start to finish. That was really needed, as Jari did not do any mistakes either and was never further away than 2 seconds.

    R2: I did a not so good start and slowed down for a while because I did not want to risk anything. It was very close with someone who was spinning in front of me.
    A bit upset to see several guys quit in this race, but in the end I found myself on p3 in midrace following David for a couple of laps.
    Some time later i could pass him and Jari wasn't too far away, but I did a huge mistake leading into the bumpy fast part.
    My car was breaking out after bump on the track and I thought I caught it, so I put my foot on the throttle a bit too early and I was caught up by another bump to have my car break out again :eek:
    With a bit of luck I could go on with the race with just minor damage, but my laptimes were half a second slower than on the first race and Jari had a bigger gap now, so I was glad to finish in 2nd this time.

    -> q: 1st / r1: 1st / r2: 2nd

    Thanks to all and cya next time around
     
  17. Thank you for your support, Dino :)

    Well, I thought I might do better than last in each race (well, 7/8 in R1) but, hey, I know my place. Besides, I had Coultards motor and he would want me to be careful with it. <Smirk>

    Maybe it was my setup? After all, from what I see from the PitCam my crew look a little suspect? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5845546/PitCam.jpg

    Until the next time..

    PS. just a thought; after I moaned about having no rear view mirror, when I did get it sorted I never saw any bugger in it anyway!


    ...Ray.
     
  18. Had some damage in the 1st race due to going off road. It was a shame as I was slowly clawing my way back to Sergio. After that my car lost some pace and was a bit unstable. I managed to adjust after a while and was at a stalemate with Michael. But I hope I kept him on his toes at least.

    2nd Race was a bit of a disaster. An awful start, I ended up giving Andy a nudge as there were cars about 4 abreast in turn 1. Had a few incidents, and then Sergio caught my back end as I was struggling for grip out of a corner. He slowed down and waited for me, but the car was horrible to drive even after what seemed a small contact with the barrier. I gave it a go, but it was clearly a no go and really wasn't worth pitting. Sergio was still waiting. I tried to flash my lights to signal him to carry on, but I changed my buttons and couldn't remember what it was.

    I couldn't see anything after Sergio put me in the gravel. I tried my best to avoid it Hugo, my apologies. When I hit you my car was actually out of control, I didn't just simply drive into the side of you.

    Just as a side note, if you are going to quit, don't just sit there. I was waiting for you to rejoin the track and then you just quit. I wan't too happy with that.

    I've been disappointed overall with the racing these cars have given. Next month, we are moving onto a new mod :)

    Interesting.
    The 2 DTM events I did this month were among the most fun races I had here for months (Dijon & Zandvoort)
