    Class: Mini Cooper S
    Track: Falkenberg
    Weather: Dry

    Practice: Tuesday January 27th 9:00 PM EST, ( Wednesday 2:00 GMT ) 30 minutes
    Qualification: 30 minutes
    Race: (10:00PM EST - 3:00 GMT) 2 by 15 laps, WTCC rules - no forced pits

    Notes: This is a Race 07 - STCC the game event, STCC expansion is required. Mini's on this track should be a blast. :rotfl:

    Important: Please pay special attention to Racedepartment's Golden Rule: If you hit another driver and disadvantage him, we expect you stop and let the other driver regain his position on you. If this costs you many places (eg first few laps) then consider this a penalty for your driving infringement. Doing this shows respect to your fellow drivers and will encourage drivers to be more careful. Please use some care when letting the other driver regain position, do not immediately stop your car on the driving line where it can cause further accidents. Not following this rule will result in your membership of the racing club being terminated at once!

    Me and Simon join in :)
  19. Huge fun!:) Especially the 2nd race!

    Quali: Very close, I think the difference was 0.009, I came 2nd behind Simon!

    Race1: The first few laps were hard, Simon could pull out about 2,5 seconds, then I started to get closer, about 0,2-0,3 seconds/lap, and when I was only 1,5 seconds behind I touched the grass and spun. Came back 5th behind Corey, had a nice fight with him, finished very close!

    Race2: Again the first few laps were hard, I could hardly match the speed of Matt, but then again I became faster and I arrived! It was really hard to find a spot where I could pass, in some lap I tried, but Simon arrived too, and had to fight with him as well!:) Then Matt became free of us as Simon passed me and then I passed him back. Then in last lap we had a "whole lap" fight with Simon, going through almost all of the corners side by side! That was huge!!! He won the fight, well done!:)

    Grats for Simon&Matt for wins, and grats for Willi too for overall 3rd!
    I finished 4th overall and that isn't a bad result!

    This was a great race, as I said there, this was the most fun race I ever had! Thx to Willi and RD for setting this up!
  20. Great fun, this race. :thumb:

    Qualifying: My best ever qualifying standing in my time with RaceDepartment: 3rd.

    Race 1: I clicked to join the grid with high hopes. Until I realised that I had stupidly forgotten to fill my car up. :doh: I raced around for the few laps I could before pitting for fuel, which left me last. I managed to catch Bob for 8th before the race ended.

    Race 2: Wheee, Pole! I managed to get a good getaway, but I lost the lead when Bob smashed into me. (Don't worry about it Bob, it's all good.) That left me 4th behind Matt, Peter and Simon. And so it stayed, with me finishing in the same position. By the way, Matt, Peter and Simon, that was the most epic three-way battle I've seen in my simracing career. Classic stuff! :D

    Greatest US event ever, in my opinion. Great way to close off my dedicated US racing for a while. Already gearing up for STCC on Saturday! :dance:

    Rhys :D
