    Hey guys, I been looking into starting my team but really want to race Imola if possible. Always been one of my fav. tracks from back in the day.

    I uploaded a hot-lap just to show what I can do and not wasting anyone's time.

    The top of FSR PRO will do below 1:21 so you still need more practice. :p

    Also, remove that music from the video. >.>

    I don't want to be mean but whoever puts music in their hotlaps are weird :D

    If you pay for the drivers license, then you can join my team easily in PRO.

    Only my second day on RFactor 2, I figured it would take me some time to get up to pace with the leaders :)

    The main part is being on the grid, taking part in the race weekends, and gaining experience to go forward.....

    besides, if you watch the video i can see atleast 3 missed apex's and plenty of places to keep improving....def not a perfect lap!!! Just figured ppl would take me more seriously if I showed I can get the car around the track.

    The main part of your development is to practice offline, not to join in server unexperienced driver with 2 days with the sim (there are a lot of them, no need extra).

    I meant to not be hurry to race if you are not ideal prepared for the race or to race with 20+ drivers.

    Appreciate the concern and I get your point, I don't think I'll be a danger to other drivers if that's what you mean...

    Everybody thinks like that... And then every race we have carnage and retired cars...

    Did we even make contact? I mean I was beached in the middle of the track pulling off-line to the outside and you tried to go around me the wrong side...I don't know how you can sum that up as anything more than bad luck. I thought you just span as you went around me

    Why don't you just watch the replay? It says a lot.

    I watched it....again at that point I don't know what you expect me to do...if you watch the replay you see me wait for a clear bit of track but i messed up my exit from the gravel. not easy driving with no suspension on the right side. Once I was at that angle your blind in my mirrors so im pulling forward to get off the racing line. How can I know your going to try to go around me on the outside of that bend? If i reverse there, i block the corner entry to the apex, if i sit still, i block both. It sucks we came together but you still finished the race, and definately being a bit harsh judging from some of the crazy incidents going on in that race.

    The fact is - you destroyed my race after only 8 laps. Nothing else I can say. You should be using maps, look left/right buttons and anithing else that might keep others safe.
