    TS 467 (of my replay file):

    Reik vs. David T.

    We were entering the middle sector hairpin, when I was very close behind David. When we accelerated David reduced his acceleration for a tiny moment. As a consequence I touched his tail before I recognize him being a bit slow.

    David spun immediately so I waited for him to let him pass me and go on racing. He went on racing in 7th Ithink and me in 9th.

    I have to take complete responsibility, because I was a bit uncareful to follow you so close. I'm very, very sorry :frown: and hope you didn't suffer any damage, because I was able to go on unharmed.

    I hope you accept my excuse that I was focused very much on my own acceleration and didn't expect the car in front (you) to accelerate slower than me, because you left the corner eralier. But of course I should have taken in account that accelerating there is difficult, so a mistake could happen anytime... :frown:

    No problem Eliezer,:)
    Nothing serious to report.

    TS 282
    Following Nico into the slow left-hander of turn 10, Anthony appeared on the apex [from my blind side] and I was forced wide. No problem.

    TS 496.
    Chasing Andy into turn 13 I was surprised by Eliezer on the apex. I unfortunately turned in and made contact. We both continued. Sorry Eliezer.

    TS 3818.
    Start of the last and I went side by side with Anthony into turn 1. Anthony was having none of it and took the apex of turn 2. I made contact with Anthony's right rear.
    Sorry Anthony. No consequences I think as we both finished in position.

    TS 445
    Alex Galyutin vs Nicolai Nicholson
    Nicolai goes a bit wide in T4. I enter the turn a bit faster than usually, touch Nico's car and spin. I could easily go through the corner if there was no Nicolai on my way, but first of all I should be more attentive while chasing somebody. My mistake.

    TS 790
    Alex Galyutin vs Eliezer Bartik
    Eliezer was invisible to me! I was accelerating after T14. There was absolutely free track ahead of me, and suddenly big BOOOOOOM happened. Broken suspension and aero --> early pit --> 2 pit-stop strategy. Game bug....

    TS 3244
    Alex Galyutin vs Tom Watts
    I was overoptimistic on late braking in T9 and touched Tom. My mistake, I hope I did not hurt your car mate!

    TS 3461
    Alex Galyutin vs Tom Watts
    Tom spuns in T14 and I slightly punch him. Tom's unlucky. Racing accident.

    All good Anthony.

    We are obligated to report any and all incidents and discuss; keeps the race Director happy if we can sort it out ourselves. :) All three of my incidents were at least partly caused by the "blind-side" nature of the corners. In other words, I had started my turn prior to yourself and Eliezer "finishing" your moves on me and then it is too late for me to do anything when I finally see you. I received no damage this race and so I feel I/ we were lucky. :) That's my perspective anyway but do feel free to disagree...

    No incident to report.

    I was a bit wider and slower in this corner to avoid the cars ahead of me (see my little video). I did not see Alex comming on my inside, but there was no consequence for me as I managed to keep my car pointing forward, received no damage and only lost a second or so.


    Also, I got a bit too close and managed to softly touch Cristian Di F.'s rear and send him into a little spin on the last lap. Luckily we had a gap back to the 5th place, so he keeps his 3rd place (and I 4th), so no consequences :) Poor driving from me there, I guess Cristian was a bit slower than I thought through a slow corner where it happened, but that is no excuse for me, my mistake :)

    not entirely your fault, i was slow up that hill, but like you say with you following so close you didnt give yourself much room for error on your part or mine, not much can do about it now anyhoo so not to worry.

    apology accepted

    David

    thx very much for accepting my apology! You're a fine sports man! I see that this season turns out to be a very unlucky one for you, being involved in different incidents, very often unguilty. :frown: That's why I feel very ashamed that now also I played a bad role in this chapter. :frown: Sorry again.

    I keep fingers crossed you find back luck again for the rest of the season, so you hopefully don't loose motivation!

    C U on track again :)
