    Questions to drivers:
    Everyone: Karl is on a roll right now and it would appear that nobody is able to touch him. What are the chances that he can make it 4/4 in Spa?

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?

    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?

    Depends if he gets affected by the slipstream glitch as soon as the inevitable happens and someone leaves the session on lap 1.


    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?
    Having stood on it (nice brag) I can confirm it is steep as sh*t and probably feels awesome in an f1 car - despite being easy flat.

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?
    Could be anyone. Tbh everyone is having a nightmare at the moment except for Karl.

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?
    1)Karl
    2)Andrew
    3)Guy


    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?

    Feel like this question is more directed at the F1 gods and they have not been favouring you recently.

    Karl definitely seems to have quite a bit of momentum on his side. He's driving very well and I was stunned to watch him just take off after the SC restart (as I was right behind him). He was aggressive when he needed to be but still managed to maintain his strategy properly. I think he could continue to go on a streak but I know others are ready to win again as well.

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?

    I just love driving this track - it is breathtaking. I don't care what anyone says. A perfect lap is nearly impossible here but I tend to perform well here so we shall see. I drove poorly here last season but still managed a good result as others took themselves out of the race in front of me.

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?

    Yes, this past race for me was a carbon copy of my Austria performance, except in Germany's case I never actually felt comfortable. I couldn't find a setup that I felt comfortable with, so I just threw Mitchell's setup on right before the race start and hoped for the best. It was a difficult race for me but happy with my finishing position.
    I'm hoping Karl gets a puncture :)


    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?

    1. Shellay
    2. Alex
    3. Ben


    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?

    At this track, it's likely, but we shall see!

    =======================================

    For the next two weeks, I have to work evening shifts at my job, so I am requesting that we start as soon as everyone gets online - before 8pm sometime if possible if we get the whole lobby in. The earlier we finish the less I have to rush after the checkered flags. I pretty much have to log off as soon as my race is done so don't be alarmed if you see me shut right off after the race ends.

    Probably quite high, although I do recall this was the one track in the F1 2015 Mini Season he became the very thing he swore to destroy, a corner cutter, so lets see :p

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?
    No. Its badly coded and the slipstream affects the outcome way too much.

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?
    Literally anyone, please don't forget @Shly38 and I at Germany too. I'm gonna go for Karl this time out, something has to stop him surely.

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?
    Mikey, Drew, Me (**** it why not)

    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?
    Not here. Please not here.

    Pretty big, it would be a surprise for me if he doesn't win the race.

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?
    I like the track quite a lot. I've been there myself when I was a kid and Eau Rouge looks amazing. :) I also like the flow of the track. Like every other track we're going to, it'll be the first time I'll do a league race on this track. I feel like I have decent pace, but we'll have to wait and see.

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?
    Could be anyone, I just have to make sure it won't be me. ;-)

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?
    1) Karl
    2) Mikey
    3) Andrew


    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?
    I don't know why everyone is always praying for a wet race, but I'll pick dry conditions over wet conditions any day of the week.

    That's all the more reason for everyone except Mikey, Shellay and Harry to hope for an all dry weekend, right? ;-P

    I think so, unless bad luck gets him


    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?

    When I used assists I was pretty good at this track, had a few TT laps and suck.

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?

    I think I've had the worst luck the last few races. DNF Baku, Puncture at Austria, Wrong tyres at Hungary, got taken out 16 seconds into race at Germany, I'll be expecting nothing different at Spa

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?

    Karl
    Shellay
    Drew

    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?


    Why not.

    I need to send out an SOS for my rear grip here.

    We may be seeing a repeat of last season.

    His pace has been crazy recently, then again there are many competitive guys in this league so I'd say he has less than a 50% chance, still better than everyone else's though :p

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?
    On the game it's kinda meh, the slipstream is so OP, had the glitch in a race on Monday and it destroys your race, so look forward to that... :/

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?
    Hopefully not me, I'd say whoever gets the glitch but so many people probably will I cant specify :p

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race?
    1. Karl
    2. Alex (people forgetting him?)
    3. Me (if I avoid the glitch)

    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?
    No! :p

    I think he won't do it here.

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?
    No.
    It was the scene of my only win in AOR, and PSGL (lol), but no.


    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?
    Can only hope it's not me. This bad luck streak recently has been killing me.

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race?
    1. Shellay
    2. Alex
    3. Me


    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?
    Wouldn't mind one

    Not that well, just played some F1 and I do more drifting than I do on DiRT 4 :p jokes aside; as long as people are fair I think I have a shot.

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?
    It is as brilliant as people make it out to be. Been there quite a bit of times already, only once for F1 tho, but it's great to be there and walk around the track etc. Driving isn't too bad either...

    Everyone: Drew has had his moment of failure, now Woolford has loaded a default setup. Who is next on the merry-go-round of bad decisions and luck?

    I've had my **** already in the first part of the season so I hope not me, however, for me it doesn't have to be anyone ^^

    Everyone: Who are your top 3 finishers for this race.?

    1) Alex
    2) Wooly
    3) Andrew


    Everyone: Can we have a fully wet weekend please?

    Pff Full wet, that ain't fun. Some changing conditions sure, bring it on...

    Everyone: Belgium, scene of the famous Spa-Francochamps, but is it actually that good?

    Yes, yes and yes, you can just a get a fantastic flow on this track and it just feels extremely rewarding
