    PSA: Someone named "Slingers" (please change your name :)) is constantly getting booted because of a mismatch on the track's gdb file - you might wanna try re-downloading the track :)

    Huge apologies to Istvan for clumsily punting you off at turn 1. Entirely my fault.

    It was a bit of a recovery drive from there. I spent most of the race on my own, pitting when I crashed at the penultimate corner just before half distance, and only had one real battle with @Dennis Phelan towards the end, which I lost when I got too preoccupied looking back I missed a braking point.

    Not my greatest showing.

    Well Campbell, mine was even worse!

    I had a very reliable car, managed to bypass all the cars on L1 and stupidly decided to get into a bash with Bjorn. I kinda let him by in T1 so I could run behind him and being stupid decided to go for it at the entrance to the chicane which got me a punctured RF tire and, AND I got to bounce back on the track and collect I think, Radovan. Last and a premature pitstop wasn't enough for my Stupidity as I rolled into the pit at 90kph to collect a SnG!

    At least my regular pit stop went well and I was able to chase down Campbell instead of just hanging out.

    The only thing I didn't do wrong was cut the chicane out!

    Next week has to be better!

    Thanks to all, even the late signups and almost didn't make it's.
    Too bad for the guys that missed the start, you missed a mess, lol!

  19. I was not in pit. I forget. Sorry. Now I see 1 pit was mandatory. I did not read rules correctly. I have to see replay what I did wrong. In last few turnings I had not fuel. 31 L is not enough.

    Unfortunately, I missed the 2 last races. :(

    In the WTCC race, when we were qualifying I couldn't see the lap times. Before I even realized what had happened my internet crashed and kicked me out from the game.:cry: I didn't try to join the F3000 race because, I didn't trust my internet connection and if something happened it would probably cause an accident with someone else. As I guessed, my modem device was broken, so as long as I hadn't a new modem, I lost the 2 last races. I got the new modem today:thumbsup: and my Internet was back again with no problems and... there I was .:)

    About today's event.

    Qualifying; I always made mistakes in the last turn and that made me to lose 1 second from my actual time.

    Race; The only thing I could do to enjoy the race from P1, is to make the gap as big as I could from the P2. :) Focusing and trying not to make mistakes was my enjoyment in this race.

    As always thanks Dennis for making this race possible for us to enjoy.

    See you next time, guys.;)
