    Track Description
    Brasilia, also known as Autódromo Internacional Nelson Piquet is located in the capital of Brazil. This circuit, like Goinia, also host the Formula 3 Brasil series, so again, a fitting location for us to run the cars. It has hosted non-championship rounds for Formula 1 and the Global GT Series, as well as MotoGP and Indycar rumored to have races there.
    Drivers will be able to keep their speed up from the exit of turn 10, all the way through until turn 4, which the middle sector being the slowest location. Really, overtakes can happen anywhere, which will leave the drivers, the commentators and the spectators on the edge of their seats, all race long.

    Weekend Schedule
    • Practice - 19:00GMT (60 Minutes)
    • Qualifying - 20:00GMT (20 Minutes)
    • Warm Up - 20:20GMT (10 Minutes - Will be adjusted so the race starts at 20:30GMT sharp)
    • Race - 20:30GMT (90 Minutes Approx / 51 Laps)

    Well, well, well...

    I said during last club event, that I would very like to drive one day in RDGPC, because when I drove in Australian club F3 event I was very confident and not-so-slow as I'm usually. And then yesterday I noticed, that I had been mentioned by @Joseph Wright that I can drive next weekend. At the start I thought, that we are going to drive at Oulton Park, so I gave myself some time to decide. Then @Dan Long wrote me, that this weekend the race is in Brasilla - the same track I drove with bunch of chaps from Down Under.

    I need to say - in my wildest dreams I didn't hope to be able to race in such an international league. A guy with a pad, who became "famous" for regular driving below 107% rule, the Eddie Edwards of Polish simracing... This will be a greatest honor of my simracing career to drive this weekend with you. I'll do my best to not be last, but also to make sure I won't mess anything. Of course, there is some formal things to do before it, but I'm more than proud about this chance I'm given.

    Well...

    In qualy I couldn't make a clean lap, I think I could find a second, but, well, I didn't.
    In race everything was fine, but then Manos Papangleou just spun and came back on track just in front of me, lost some consedration and spin.

    But the best was later. My MalwareBytes decided, that this is the best moment to pop-up some information. I went to desktop and later I couldn't found where I where, cause I was between two lines of asphalt. When I was back on track, I was black flagged...

    Very sad, but on the other end very happy, even proud. I worked today really, really hard to master G2920, I manged to do not-so-bad, race was looking interesting, but bloody Malwarebytes... Thanks a lot, chaps, I do hope one day I will race full season with you.

    We know there were some "issues" regarding incidents. All post-race reports to be sent by midnight tomorrow, so just over 24 hours to get it sorted.

    Hopefully there wont be any, and we can all be gentlemen, BUT I did notice a few people (and hear on stream) were a bit silly...


    On the other hand...
    I am so happy I raced this week. A shame I only got behind the wheel an hour before practice, but even being at the back was fun with the few battles I had. A shame Mark spun in front of me near the beginning which I went into the wall to avoid. But overall, a great race (and I might have to race the final now...)

    I hope I didn't hold anyone up, and I did slow down way more than needed under blue flags to not cause an issue, so I hope you all got passed okay! My POV of the race will be posted once I have uploaded it, but 4 monitors was taxing on my PC nearer the end, so I was having some jumps here and there that scared me a little!

    I must say a massive well done to teammate @Cacharraco for the podium! And a shame for @xdevildog near the end with his penalty. But the final race looks promising for sure! Hopefully Pepe will be able to support you in the race a little more than I did! :roflmao:

    Well done again to @Tim O'Glock for the win! You are an alien out there :alien::alien:

    Apologies, @David Jundt, for the contact! It wasn't a crazy overtake attempt. I just misjudged a fake-overtake and tried my best to avoid hitting you. Even though it was a league race I thought it's best to apply the gentleman rule. Hope your car didn't get too damaged. Sorry again!

    Very hard race for me, made a mistake on lap 2 into turn 4 spinning off into the wall (luckily minimal damage) and falling down to P23. Made decent progress moving up through the pack trying to salvage some points!
    Finished P8. Could of been in a slightly higher position come the end had i not made a couple of small mistakes throughout the race but hey-ho, it's off to Oulton Park we go! :thumbsup:

    I leave the starting grid to lower the sound of the game; unfortunately, I come back too late, so I start 25th pit, I'm doing a regular race to go up to the battle of the 12 th place, alas I make a mistake and I finished 14, I'm happy with my pace. just a little flat, I want to apologize to PAZSY, there was touchette because I was disturbed looking in the retro see "the alien" deposited me ...... bravo to all and soon

    As you can tell, very nervous at the start. But the beginning and final few laps are the only ones worth watching in the end. Not the greatest of races I have taken part in, but not the worst either. I was happy to make it to the end.

    I leave Brasilia with good feelings, when apart from the training, you have a great setup, you enjoy games like AMS or rFactor2, if not, you are sold.
    Great QF and race, until going third on lap 39 to enter the pits at 71 km / h and take a well deserved Drive Through .. only my fault.
    Congratulations to my mate "Anchoainiou Navarro", great race friend! I'm very happy to see that pilot # 10 did not manage to bend you.
    Congratulations to all the pilots and especially to those who, even with problems, were able to reach the finish line.

    See you in the last race, Carlos.
