    Good race very exhausting spent most of my time defending my position and ultimately losing them but still a good race all the same thanks guys for the challenge.
    @PurgerUK I must apologise once again for my mistakes outbreak myself and gave you a bit of bash but I did gave back the position anyway. The second one simply run out of front end grip so I simply let off the brake as I knew I wasn't going to make it and probably cause more of a problem and coasted off the track hoping not to hit anybody as I went between you both, not sure who the other was though. So sorry to him too. Good fun, enjoyed it.

    Was a fun race on my part, surprised myself with 5th in Qualifying, going about a second quicker than I had previously. Got an ok start but had to keep it cool with a battle between @SweAlex and @Roggan at the start. Had @Dennis Härz on my bumper the entireeee race, literally from the lights out. Surprised that @SweAlex made a stop about halfway through as my tyres were amazingly alright. Never driven a real car, which makes downshifting interesting :D without heel and toe. Kept battling for 4th through until the last lap where I thought I'd taken Dennis out so slowed, only to find him in front of me by a second :rolleyes:. Then span on the final corner dropping me to 7th. Overall amazing fun and I'll be back soon. ;):)

    I didn't make a pit stop but on retrospect I think I should have as for the amount of fuel I had on board I probably would have gone just as fast in reverse. And my tyres in the last 9 minutes were absolutely knackered and I mean knackered 2% front left and 6% front right. But hey ho live and learn.

    I think most didn't, but I wish I did considering the condition of my tyres at the end :D

    Serious! Mine only dipped into the yellow a lap after you pitted. I'd expect the Beemer to be better on tyres than my boat!

    Excellent racing guys, that was really good fun! Didn't get far up the field but I never care about that in these cars because they're just so much fun to drive regardless.

    Apologies to @Ole Marius Myrvold. I know you waited for me but there really was no need. I shut the door too late and left you with nowhere to go but into my back end, so if anything the contact was my fault not yours. :redface:

    No pitstop for me, and I'm pretty sure quite a few others didn't either. I was interested to see if many people would given that there was no mandatory stop.

    40min practice+ 15 quali+ 40 race and no sign of exhaustion or illness from VR, yay :D fun race, great cars, wish there was bigger variety in cars, felt like every second one is bmw or merc :p I decided to pitstop since ive never done it, especially in vr but i think thats the last time i do that without it being mandatory

    I completely disagree!!

    I locked my front wheels, and for me it felt like I did a messy divebomb. It felt like a really awful, terrible thing from my side.
    I was sitting on a Norwegian TS, talking there, just listening to the RD one tonight, but I would've said the same if I could've answered you live as well.
    Haven't watched the replay though, but I would think it shows the same, me locking my front wheels and just knocking you sideways, like a NASCAR-driver on a road course...

    I am sorry!

    Really great racing, everyone!

    40 minutes was a long enough race to have hit a bit of lap traffic - please take my tone as being completely devoid of conceit (I'm only a midfield middler myself, after all), but I am sending out a big "well done" to the lapped cars I did come across. Getting passed sucks...getting lapped sucks even worse (I know from plenty of first hand experience on both counts), but everyone I came upon was extremely calm, predictable, and courteous. People were clearly watching their mirrors and being situationally aware.

    The art of being passed by a faster car is something I certainly never would have recognized as a skill until I started sim racing, but it most definitely is! It's a vital part of racecraft and a critical feature of competition driving.

    Hah, ok. I guess we can call it a racing incident then. :) I knew you were close but was so busy trying not to lose the position under braking that I wasn't watching you in my mirrors. I thought I cut you off, though Crew Chief did only warn me you were alongside a split second before contact. But hey, if you're fine I'm fine so it's all good. :thumbsup:

    Likewise, as I feel it's my fault. If you're fine, I'm fine! ;)

    From the stewards pov:whistling:
    Great race guys, some really good battles and watching the back of the cars step out was fun.
    Congrats to the podium and to all for attending also for such gentlemanly behaviour:)

    :D I had tons of fuel left. Overestimated my pace. When I attempted a cut back on you through the second banked hairpin I tapped your rear which I thought sent you spinning off. A shame because I think I could have had you into the next left ;):) Was awesome fun though, felt like I was going to get overtaken every time I went into the final corner.

    It's all about my driving. My brother Magnus and my friend Robert was able to Finnish without piting with the same car. So must learn more about tire management :D

    Enjoyed the race chaps, personal nightmare for me, thought I'd make a cheeky pitstop, couldn't find my box, so quick drive to one end of pit then reverse all the way back to box 1 (hidden), in my haste to make up time I seem to have put in fuel I didn't need and leaving the shot tyres on back into the action and BANG, front left gave out, so whole lap with a flat (apologies if I hindered anyone, tried to stay out of the way), out with a fresh set of tyres only for race to finish, well someone has to hold up the rest of you, no top without a bottom!
    Again great racing gentlemen!
