    Can you sign me up as '' maybe '' Eric, i wish those US events would start at 20:00 EST ( like the EU starts at 20:00 BST ) as the current start time is a lottery for me in terms of staying awake. I think i,m getting too old for all night racing.........:rolleyes::confused::tongue:

    Strange development. I cannot practice for the event because when it initializes the game crashes... If I can't get it working I won't be able to race...

    *Edit* Got it fixed, should be good for the race!

    Well lets see how many ways I can toss the lead away................................2 times!

    R1 was fun battling with Dariusz! 5 to go Dariusz flies off in the esses in the valley. Giving me 2.5 seconds of lead which I can just maintain if I am smart. Well then I hit the tires and spin the car.........Give Dariusz the lead and I can close a bit but in the end, he wins.

    R2 I am following Dariusz and he gets a coupe cars between us. I battle carefully with Eric E and chase Brendan and Dariusz for 2 laps. Then they have a moment exiting the esses and I take P2 for now. I run down Ethan who drives well and get P1 when he makes a mistake late in the lap and I am in side him entering the last corner to the main straight. I hit the tires again one lap later and give dariusz a larger lead of like 4 .2 I race him down to about 1.2 but its no joy afteer that.

    Well done on the double Win Dariusz! We had a monster fight in Race 1 for about 11 laps and seoperated by no more than .5!

    Thanks to al of you who cam e out to race tonight! YOUr support of these events is appreciated by me very much!

    Everyone handled themselves very well on track I thought! Well done to all of you!

    See ya next time!
