    I'm gonna pop on the server for a while now. :)

    @Jarek Kostowski which cars have faulty FFB? Is it some of the Renault Alpines and do the broken ones all have reverse forces?

    Arghh, you must have posted right after i gave up on finding company yesterday, i'd have joined. Alpine #03 & #07 have the ffb bug if i'm not mistaken, yes it is reversed but re-reversing still yields funny results so it's better to simply avoid those skins. One or two skins of the Simca Rallye have the same problem, i don't remember which ones though.

    What a brilliant track this is! I would have been way better off if I'd managed to learn the track beforehand though, like apparently everybody else did :D as I found it quite hard to learn.

    During P1 and Q1 together I managed just 2 laps without a spin or crash :cautious: so at R1 Warmup I did consider quitting for the sake of everybody else's safety.
    But since I qualied at the back anyways I decided to just go ahead and race. However a good R1 start got me up a few places and it actually took a really pretty but slow side-by-side synchronous spin of me and Jarek for the rest to get in front again. :)

    After that my lack of pace became painfully obvious, I was 3 sec. per lap slower than the next slowest guy, so I used the remaining laps for practice, enjoying the environment and the nice "HistorX" advertising alongside the track:)

    With some encouragement over TS :thumbsup: I decided to stick around for R2 and cheat my way up by picking the Alfa, which I think is the fastest car in class.:D
    It worked, Q2 gave me P2 in front of all-but-one Mini's and the Cortina's. But being so far up front I couldn't see the starting lights :laugh: so I took off a bit slow.
    Didn't matter, 'cause I had one hell of a great race with Stig and Jarek that lasted all the way to the end, finishing in 4th place :thumbsup::thumbsup: And even did some decent laptimes, although nowhere near the fastest ones.

    THX to the Staff for this event and to all you guys for racing! Unfortunately tonight was my only opportunity to race this week :( so have fun and I'll CU all next week!
