    Race report - short version: Yays! :)

    Race report - long version:

    Not liking Macau, I hadn't raced it in quite a while and thankfully put in a few laps yesterday. Entered the server early and guess what, it paid off - qualified P1 and started fairly well, though Nuno apparently managed to get around T2 a bit better and passed me on the straight and... went on to crash into the barrier after T3 - although he got right in front of me, I managed to carry on quickly and kept P1 until the end - my first win with RD ever :)

    Starting from behind in the second race, I was in for some action on the first kilometers :D First, I saw Vaughn flying around after T2 (no idea what happened), then it seemed like it was Nuno to crash into T3's barrier again, though I was further behind so I'm not exactly sure what happened :) Plenty of time to react, I thought - not so much, as he backed up right into me - yikes. Happens. :)
    Went on to gain some places and found myself behind Dennis to bump into him in the latter part of sector 2 - sorry about that, hope I didn't break anything?
    Dennis let me pass easily the next lap and I tried to chase Dario, but apparently something in my Mini broke through the shenanigans as I was missing topspeed and losing about two seconds a lap to my fastest lap in race #1. Concentrated on keeping the gap to P3 and finished 2nd.

    Great racing, would NOT have expected to have that much fun on Macau ;)

    Gongrats to @Björn Golda on his first win at RD!

    Terrific fights in both races! I think though we may have gotten more air time than the snowboarders at the Olympics :O_o:. I had a tough time getting in to a rhythm each race but found it both times just befor faster guys caught me. I fight, I let pass. I like the drive!

    Tough cars, I don't expect the other cars this week will take the bumps as well.

    This was fun fun fun.
    Few laps to practice and 3 or 4th place in qualify. Then race 1 made a mistake and spoon against the wall. The mini was not the same any more and start to lose the front guys. Race two got a good start but then again a mistake (i dont no for shure if someone touch me but it´s no big deal anyway). Again wrecked mini and just tried to hold 4th position to end. Negative? so few guys racing. U really dont even imagine what u missed

    another day of racing, another two DNFs <sigh>
    race 1: ran out of fuel about 1/2 lap before finish, DANGIT
    race 2: starting at pole .. not really sure how, but I drifted into the barriers on turn 2 and flipped the car.
    D'OH!!
    still was fun tho. enjoyed watching a few battles in race 2 after I was out.

    I was exhausted after hard day.. Getting late to come home.. I was lost my mood and faith in joining this race in time.. But somewhere in my mind somebody was whispering, that I must try!
    Quick unfold for my rig, one hand working with wheel and shifter mount, other clicking mouse... And YES! I'm in! 2mins to the end of qual :whistling:
    OMG! I've forgotten that it is Macau wheek.. I don't know this track..

    Sorry guys, I'm falling asleep totaly :sleep: Shorting my story..

    Was great race as always ;) I dont know my results and I dont care, it was great pleasure to race against You guys!
