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!

  16. Race 1 :
    Quali 6
    Finish 4

    A nice race (instead of the fact that my suspension was broken in the first lap), a good fight with Dave Stephenson.

    Race 2 :
    Finish 12

    Some mistake, making myself going out of the track too offen...
    Sorry Michael Hermann, for the touch at the lap 13.
  17. That was certainly a fun couple of races, Mallala is a very nice track in my opinion.
    I found throwing the mini into some of the corners was a good way to improve upon lap times, but that only worked for the 2nd gear and faster corners.

    If there is a way to have side mirrors, like Rfactor, then please let me know, as it is really hard to know where the car exactly is when right beside me, especially in
    those tight corners at Mallala. If no option, then so be it.

    Race 1 started 9th of 13, and thanks to those that ran out of fuel, came 5th.

    Race 2 started 4th, and because my comp crashed after the race, I lost the replay.
    Michael was closing in on me, and eventually He tapped me in one of the tight corners, but redressed, I was a bit slow in passing because of not being sure whose fault it was, no problems anyway, all part of the fun.
    Later he got me, which also let about 2 others through, 2 of whom had an incident in T1 shortly after, giving me 6th back.
    Near the end had a go at passing Luc Mangos, but tapped him, redressed, no place lost so 6th it was.
    If anyone could post the 2nd race somewhere for download it would be much appreciated.

    A good start to the new year, looking forward to the next 51 weeks.
  18. first race :
    Quali : 4
    finish : 2

    Good race, great battle with my team mate Luc.
    After a moment make an error and down a the 4th, but with the fuel problem finish 2nd, damned fuel.

    race 2:
    start 7
    finish 2

    Good start again but little hurt at 2nd turn, go out, lose time and restart. David was really fast i can overtake my other team mate (Sebastien) but i stay in 2nd place to the finish .

    Total finish first with 16 points, but it's a pity to the fuel mistake at the first race.

    I again was lucky to be able to join late, but I enjoyed this one. I also liked the track, except for the blind pitlane re-entry which is rather dangerous, but realistic to the actual track. Unfortunately, I had forgotton how to drive the MINI and had no practice, so I couldn't find any pace. So decided the safest thing for me was to start at the back (where I deserved to be) and try to stay out of trouble.
    Race 1. Off the line, I immediately dropped to last, but after the usual off tracks up front, I was up to P7. However, I missed the hairpin braking myself, and dropped another 3 places. I then had some fun racing with Steve and Mark. Mark and I kept swapping places by taking turns at running off the end of the hairpin LOL. During this, Wally was slowly gaining both of us. To my amazement, I finished P6 after, I assume, people were running out of fuel.
    Thanks to Michael H for giving me his setup, which included more than enough fuel. :handshake:

    Race 2. Starting from P3, I thought I had better concentrate some more. I managed to run with the leaders for many laps, but kept getting passed under brakes at the rotten hairpin. I think I was too careful after driving the GT cars. I got a bit of a hip and shoulder from Michael S as he passed at the hairpin (no probs Michael, you bounced sideways off the curb), which damaged my suspension, but it didn't seem too serious. Finished P4.

    Thanks to all who raced, it was certainly different from our recent GT outings, the MINI's are certainly fun cars.
