    Have a look at what your settings are for receive/transmit are like. they may need adjusting. I have had to set mine almost up fully. Just play around with them, theres an answer there somewhere

    That was a fun race.

    I only decided at the last minute to join as id had a drink or 4 and thought id just float around at the back. I almost fell off my chair when i posted a fastest lap in practice!

    My start was shocking as usual and i was down from 2nd to 4th at the first turn after Gijs and Steve came together. I came out of that un-damaged and set of after Istvan who had got past us all in that 1st corner.

    I caught Istavan quite quick and had a couple of goes at getting past him which let Gijs and Steve catch up then i had slight contact with Istvan that put me down to 6th. The red mist came down after that and i pushed hard to catch them.

    I got up to 2nd and tried to catch Gijs but he was 8 seonds ahead and kept that gap untill the pit-stops when it came down to 6 seconds. I tried again to catch but was running out of talent and had one eye on Justin behind me who had come from last after spinning into the gravel early on and was catching me slowly. I managed to hold on to come second, 10 seconds behind Gijs and 4 in front of Justin.

    Congrats Gijs, if id got a clean start then we could have had an epic 80 minute battle!;)
