    Maybe handy to include a link to the track also as Vanport is not a default track but an add-on ;)

    Server is up btw :)

    It was a long time ago since I raced on this track and was struggling to go around quickly. Tried to work on my setup which I had from before, but my driving style changed a bit, so the setup wasn't suited for the whole track (only in S1).
    In both races I messed up in the last chicane and 3 times lost my front wing and damaged my left rear suspension badly. Spend more than 300 seconds in the pits for a rear wing replacement.
    With the suspension broken, drove in both races to the finish. :p

    Anthony was like a swiss clockwork, unbelievable pace! Well done mate! :)

    Thanx for all who came in and stuck till the end. Hopefully see you guys with next events. :)

    Race one was a lonely affair, Stephan had a massive crash and headed to the pits for2 laps as did Nils, but Anthony just took of doing2/3 second a lap faster. Still, second can't be grumbled at.

    As for race2, someone need to remind me not to all- tab out to check on something, every time I do, the game never restarts.

    Personally,i think there is something amiss with my windows install. Force feedback is a bit screwed on all games, the task bar is double the snooze it should be, and I've tried everything to make it normal.
    So, today will be spent getting it reinstalled, what fun!

    I lost my FFB on Tuesday in the 2nd race...but yesterday it was all fine.
    Thanks for the race guys. I really enjoyed Vanport this week and really found the rhythm last night especially in the 2nd race when every lap except 1 was within .8 sec :)
    I've turned up the yaw and look ahead options and I'm getting a much more seat of the pants feel...together with the excellent FFB it's just about ruined all the other sims for me now...
