    Maybe driving minis somewhere else like I did when Mini Friday went walkabout, I only noticed the change back last week when I logged on to check something else out. It may take a while to get them back.

    Oh man..

    I started this event with one goal: to finish!
    Q: 3rd
    Race: Started well, could pass Arunas. Then I was chasing Remco, and after the first few laps I seemed to be able to close the gap a bit, but then I touched the outside before the left hairpin with that yellow curb! (the one before the second last turn on the track) Of course I spun right onto that curb, and as it's huge, of course my car turned over! I didn't know where I was then, I almost hit esc, but then the game flipped me back on my wheels and I saw a quick way to get off the track, while Bob was coming. Then I tried to chase Bob but my car seemed to be slower. Tbh I think the wheel tricked me a bit, sometimes I saw sudden movements on the ingame wheel when I was doing nothing, and my laptimes after a few laps suddenly became faster again... Well this wheel is already much older than the one I got this for as a warranty change, but I hope it won't die on me soon..
    So, I was chasing the 2 guys ahead me, as Remco seemed to get away very much. Then Bob passed Arunas and I started to chase him! About the half of the race passed and I got close to Arunas, then he disappeared. First I thought, "oh man he disconnected right before we could match"... then a thought came to my mind and I quickly checked in a straight... it wasn't he who disconnected...
    So after all the pushing to get back and fight for the podium, my internet connection ruins it all... I couldn't even get here to the forums within a few minutes.

    Well, I hope all of you had fun! And of course thanks for the event!:)

    I was the last one from the very beginning. So I became a good target to ram me back after 1 lap difference was encountered. I got 2 or 3 hits, so I must have done something wrong unintentionally.

    I didn't feel any damage from those minor rammings, but some time later I rammed a wall and lost my front wing. I managed to run like 10 laps with the lost wing till the fuel finished.

    In the pit (24 laps) I made a mistake of changing only front tires but not back ones. So the car became very unstable when braking and my attempts to fix it by setting brake balance failed. So I decided to go to the pit again. I was too far back so I couldn't lose anything more by going to pit once again.

    But when I was going to the pit lane I spun (because of instability caused by tires) and stuck near a wall, probably because a map glitch. So I waited for a few laps so everybody could see my misery and disconnected. 1h out ouf 1h 20min is a very good result for me.

    Apologies to Andrii for the hit. When I came round T1 a full speed and saw you crossing the track I thought you would stay right, but not quite right enough lol.

    Was a great race and Congrats Remco and Arunas for the 1st and 2nd.

    2 minute laps forever
