    I decided shortly to join the race. I had never driven this car track combo. joined 5 ,im before qualy and tested some of my setups. I was 3rd in qualy and stefan had a bad start after that it was a nice battle for 1 st i took over first and after 25 min my girlfriend jamed my gas pedal. I rejoined 4 seconds behind 1st and after 30 min shorty before the pit stop rfactor crashed. A real shame the race was starting to get really interesting
  12. Now I remember why I stopped racing some month ago....

    Was running nicely in 3'd managing the tyres. The guys in front was increasing the gap and was quicker and the distance back to 4'th increased, so all was good.
    Just after the 30min mark I stopped for fuel...... In pits nothing happened. Went out for another lap and checked the pit menue that it was set right.
    Stopped in pits again... But still no fuel.

    Race over.
    Still to much bugs to be funny

    Hope the rest of you hade a great evening
  13. That's a real shame :( Saw you infront of me and then boom you dissapeared.

    Stefan span off and I cought up with him. Passed him, then he passed me etc. Thought we where going to have a nice battle but just could not keep up, pushed too hard and spun out again.

    Was alot of fun as always thanks everyone
  14. Joined up about 15mins before quali, with no practice..for a 50min race...that's going to go well isn't it.

    Track was good fun, never done this combination before. Wasn't expecting too much for the race. Start was ok, settled into a rythmn in 4th. Began to catch back up with 3rd but a couple of mistakes later I dropped back. In my pitstop, sped into the pitlane after forgetting which button was my pit limiter...oops. Came back in, accidentally took another pitstop. 3rd time lucky, got my drive through done. Almost a lap down on Matt, who was upto 2nd after a couple of drop outs.

    Closed down by about 10-15s by the end, including setting fastest lap of the race, but ended up in 3rd. Could of got 2nd if all had gone to plan. Maybe challenged for a win if I had actually practiced and had a setup :)

    Had great fun driving tonight. Thanx guys! :)

    Got my first pole in my first 1:02 and was surprised that I was fastest! The others must have made a mistake here and there.
    Starting from pole was hard as you don't see any lights, so I concentrated on the cars in the mirror to move and lost 2 spots before the first corner.
    Went off a million times and on the grass you can't turn or slow down so went from 3rd till 7th within 3 laps with a half lap down to 1st. :p
    Had a nice battle with Tiens for a couple of laps and did started making a gap, I could not really get back the gap to Matt smaller. When it was time for my pit stop I wnet a bit wide going for the pit and slammed my car into the barrier... tyres:22 seconds, fuel: 15 seconds....DAMAGE 180 seconds..... Race over. When I got back on track I was 50 seconds behind Tiens and at the finish it was still about 25 seconds. Came in 5th.

    Hope to see you guys next time too! :)
  16. Also had a great time tonight :thumbsup:.
    Got a good start and after that Frederic started chasing me and I had to work like mad to keep him behind :geek: . Eventually he passed and I chased him for some laps before he had his little issue. From then on I only focused on staying on track and do a quick pitstop...and it went well :)
