    Didn't even know that black hole excisted. Has anybody informed the creator of the track @Patrick Giranthon about this in the past?

    Yes, because this video is originally from a post to inform Patrick about this hole: http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/silverstone-2-seasons-drs.123663/page-3#post-2337128
    I don't think it has been updated since then… but everybody should be fine if we all keep at least 2 wheels within the white line like we should in a club race… :D

    Sorry @KoshaPashkin for the incident at the beginning of the race, the car simply didn't want to stop, and my efforts to at least slip through a gap didn't work out. :(

    On a general note, there's something wrong with this track. The Mini behaved horrendously different to any stock tracks, it was constantly slipping on the smallest input, not to mention if you go an inch off the ideal line. I'm just simply glad we're done with this mess.

    Well just want to say a big apologies Pavel, the first contact I feel was a bit 50/50 as you kind of cut in front of pretty much at the braking zone which I feel is a risky move in these cars, didn't really have time to pull it up with such a short distance to do so. But yes the second one was all me, just wasn't prepared for the line you would take through that section, pretty much the complete opposite to how I took it. I tried to get it stopped before the inevitable hit, unfortunately through that section with the car so loaded it just wasn't happening :(

    Anyway, had some good battles throughout the race, overall a pretty crappy performance from me really. Just didn't seem to have the pace after the first five or ten minutes to the stops, and then forgot to uncheck the damage repair in the stop which cost me a good six or so seconds. As I say, generally fairly mediocre stuff from me.

    Biggest apologies for the start @quicksilver384 This blond moment was really inappropriate, especially with a ginger... Sorry again! :x3:

    Race was intense. First laps were even more crowded than at Brands Indy! Thanks @Steve Le Gallez for the fight in the end, that was close! Pffff, I was happy to see the finish line! ;)

    Congrats for the win @Ross McGregor Very impressive! :thumbsup: But please, be nicer with my teammate @Shawn Jacobs next time! :roflmao:

    Slowest in practice, slowest in qualifying. A fun race until a big glitch cost me 27 seconds. I never got that back even though I had a great pitstop. My dogs became impatient with about 25 minutes to go so having 17th place firmly in hand I made one more stop to let them loose in the backyard. ?That cost another 4 minutes but I still had a grip on 17th so I was very happy :D

    Thanks to all that lapped me for not hitting me with your 100w high performance headlights!

    Just going to point out that when I commentated on RoC, the lead changed last corner... and now this race, lead changed in the last moments. Maybe I'm a lucky charm for entertaining races :roflmao:

    Also just to clarify on this as I don't want to be labelled as something I know I'm not, I'm not one to make contact during battles or drive dirty. As I have said the major contact with Pavel was completely unintentional and just a case of two different styles and lines through a section of track coming together.

    When we battled at the end of the race it was completely clean and there was no contact made, as it was hard fought but clean racing. I've always had a philosophy to battle hard but clean without contact, so if any contact is made I most certainly do not intend it to happen. Generally I have been more pissed off and angered at myself for causing contact then probably other drivers involved would feel on the few occasions it has happened.
