    Track Description
    For the fourth round of the season, we will be ending our European Tour in the RDGPC, with a visit to the classical Silverstone circuit. Not since the Champ Car series visited Brands Hatch a proper American Open-Wheeler car have been racing in the UK. A fairly fast circuit with some nice overtaking spots, and wide runoff areas, should lead to an exciting race and a nice end to the European Tour!

    It's race day! :D

    Whilst the Prototype's and GTE's continue to lap at Le Mans, we take our DW12's for a tour around good ol' Silverstone. Here's hoping the racing in the 2nd half of the season will be as competitive as it was during the first :cool:

    On a little side note, keep your eyes on @MattWright to make some moves on the longer straights as he clearly got a bit of a top speed advantage :laugh::p:roflmao:

    @Ole Marius Myrvold are you able to send Eneric one of the blank liveries?
    Eneric, do you know how to import a custom skin into your game?

    What a waste of my time. Somewhere in the confusion behind the unexpected safety car I took a hit from behind, though the damage wasn't too bad so I continued. Adjusting to the change in handling dropped me back several places and then I got caught in a 50/50 into Becketts, crashed and couldn't be bothered continuing.

    Continuing with that race was the wrong decision IMO, with several people taking damage and otherwise losing out in the confusion. I wouldn't mind so much but every race has had some kind of organisation problem, from the botched start at Barber, the hugely long caution at Road America and of course the mess at Lausitzring. I help run seasons on another site, I know that they involve a huge amount of work and that sometimes issues happen, but these are basic problems that shouldn't be happening and which don't happen nearly so often at other sites I've raced with.

    I'm out of love with this season, which considering these are some of my favourite cars and tracks is really saying something. See you at Indy, probably.

    The unexpected safety car was unexpected for everyone. It was unfortunate, but drivers learnt to dealt with it. We know that there have been issues this season, and it was a choice of stop the league abruptly or run it to the end. You can pull out of the league without any penalty if you choose to. We know this has not been a perfectly organised season which is why myself and @Ole Marius Myrvold have chosen to take on the league instead of stop it completely. I hope you appreciate that.

    I can just second Joseph's post. My mind raced the moment I realized the yellow flag-SC happened. It was a frustrating start on the effort from me and Joseph when it comes to trying to save the league, and we are still confident that the season can be ended on a major high at Indianapolis!

    EDIT: With that being said though. I am really sorry for the start confusion.

    That was one of the hardest races I've ever done. Don't think I've had a race this long in this heat and humidity. And then after I got up from my wheel I gashed my foot on my chair. Whoops!

    I am going to have to go and have a long, long nap. Very happy to have won, didn't realise I had the pace for it, and wasn't sure my strategy would work. See you at Suzuka.

    Sorry guys I didn't get chance to put down my absence for todays race. I thought I might be back in time after running around to two parties for my son to go today. I got back and race was almost run with 20 odd laps to go. Just as well really I had no setup for the track and no track time. All my times been focussed on Lemans so far. Hope to be in for Suzuka if not then Indy :D

    That was one hard race, holy crap... I had an incredibly nervous car on lift-off and acceleration but couldn't figure out how to fix it. There were some great battle's in the opening stages and when I was behind Matt Le Gallez I decided to pit early and try the undercut. Stupidly though I made a (in hindsight almost hilarious) mistake about my fuel number, somehow thinking I used a full liter a lap less then I actually did! :O_o: . Worrying about how I was going to solve this, I lost some concentration, and together with my weird handling car, this resulted in some (half-)spins and other mistakes, one of which picking up a 1-second stop/go. I ended up making an extra stop for fuel, aiming to secure 5th. Then with about 3 laps to go I noticed Ryan in 4th making a stop, and I ended up around 5 seconds short of passing him... Still kicking myself for losing focus and trowing away potentially another 4th! :(:D

    Well done to @Valrys for a great win, @Chark for 2nd and solidifying his great championship position and @Matt88 for 3rd!
