  2. A few little changes to the race thread format and the way the league will be ran:
    - Race threads will have less build-up/review of the last race because I'm quite busy and I think everyone here would rather prefer just to race and have a list of stats readily available.

    - The pre-race poll will change every week to something a bit more engaging then just who is going to win the race.

    - Following this change to the race thread, I'll also simplify the forum a bit when I get some time, I'd rather have us focus on the pure racing and have a league that can be stable going long-term by focusing on the important things rather then trying too much to make this into a social club and waste time, we're all getting older now so it's hard for us to commit too much time into it all. The key focus from now on will be filling up grid spots and making sure the racing is clean and fun for everyone to enjoy.

  3. Questions to drivers?
    Will you be attending?: Should be there
    Who will be on pole?: Mitchell
    1st, 2nd and 3rd?: Lynchy, Mitchell, Mikey
    Who who will score the surprise result of the race?: Dan will finish the race
    On a scale of 1-10, how boring was the Canadian GP?: 6ish, I had a fun first 20 laps leading and trying to keep Lynchy behind but after that it dragged on like crazy.
    Will Baku be choatic in terms of DNFs like Monaco or calm like Canada?: I expect utter chaos at the start at least.
     
  4. Questions to drivers?
    Will you be attending?: Can't make this one, I will be out at sea getting drunk!
    Who will be on pole?: Mikey
    1st, 2nd and 3rd?: Mikey, Lynchy, Jamie
    Who who will score the surprise result of the race?: Mikey - making it the entire way without a single incident
    On a scale of 1-10, how boring was the Canadian GP?: Kind of an oddly worded question to be honest .... the word "boring" already makes a determination of how the race was so a scale is useless. Regardless, I agree that it was pretty much a waste of my time.
    Will Baku be choatic in terms of DNFs like Monaco or calm like Canada?: I hope very few people finish the race so as to minimize my loss in the championship point as I will be missing this round. As it looks now, this should be the only race that I miss this season.

    Saif, I am proud of you for making the changes to this forum that you've had to make. I think that keeping attendance high is paramount in the success of this league going forward. It's a bit disappointing that we've had a few people drop out already but I urge everyone to invite anyone they know to join us so we can continue to have a great time each week. We have a lot of potential.

    Have a great race guys - see you at Austria!! :)
     
  5. Will you be attending?: YES
    Who will be on pole?: Mikey
    1st, 2nd and 3rd?: Mikey, Lynchy, Saif
    Who who will score the surprise result of the race?: hopefully me getting 6th or higher
    On a scale of 1-10, how boring was the Canadian GP?: 7 not much happend indeed. the rain made it even worse i think
    Will Baku be choatic in terms of DNFs like Monaco or calm like Canada?: I think i could be the suprise of the season with people not DNF and talent showing what they made off.

    see you on the track!!
     
  6. Will you be attending? Yes
    Who will be on pole? Lynch or saif, maybe Des if he is racing and actually trying :p
    1st, 2nd and 3rd? same as the pole favourites, but maybe mitchell and myself in the mix
    Who who will score the surprise result of the race? me again hopefully
    On a scale of 1-10, how boring was the Canadian GP? no idea
    Will Baku be choatic in terms of DNFs like Monaco or calm like Canada? Definetly more like monaco because the sim damage is gonna take away a lot of drivers, and also the safety car might be involved aswell

    Have not touched this track since the release week, so might be good to get some mileage on it in a competetive environment :p

    6/10. There was a lot happening in the first couple of laps but it was a fairly quiet race for me.
    Will Baku be choatic in terms of DNFs like Monaco or calm like Canada?
    I thought everyone did well in Canada but I would expect a lot of DNFs here, especially after what happened in Monaco :confused:

  14. Will you be attending? Yes
    Who will be on pole? Lynchy
    1st, 2nd and 3rd? Lynchy, Mitchell and Saif
    Who who will score the surprise result of the race? I hope me, for finishing high.
    On a scale of 1-10, how boring was the Canadian GP? Beginning was fun as I had great pace even with a half front wing, but after my stop I was all on my own till the end.
    Will Baku be choatic in terms of DNFs like Monaco or calm like Canada? Haven't driven a lap on this track yet but I don't think its too difficult. Hope it stays dry.
     
  15. Managed a 50% race single player today, purely to see how the race played out and to learn the track a bit. I used a few flashbacks due to idiotic AI and binned it a couple of times out of fatigue.

    Car setup will win this, those going low wings will hit issues when the tyres wear to 25-30%, those on high wings will lose out on every straight.

    Fatigue is a major factor, the breaking zones are heavy and unforgiving.

    Hopefully It will be a good race

    Edit- race vid, fails and all.
