  3. :cry: this time I had the laptimes to really drive together with somebody

    Lap 3, getting very near Kennet, planning where to overtake, I get a tad too close, so I have to brake and I slide a bit. Steve, who was behind, tries to pass on the inside, we touch, I lose control, rear wheel out and that was the race for me.

    I don't think the overtake was unfair, I simply did not see him (was more occupied catching the slide), and then the contact in the middle of the turn was final.



    * I might add, I have the virtual mirror because the normal ones fall out of my screen, I believe he was right in my blind spot.

  4. the first 4 laps would sooo cool, I came up to position 12!

    Unfortunately, I came to the 130R a little too far to the outer curb
    and turned at 250 km / h
    even before I came to a standstill
    I was unfortunately in the line of vale and ruined his race :(

    My very, very sorry to Vale :(

    Hope, we got more luck for the next events:thumbsup:

    Sorry if I blocked you Tim. Thought it was Anthony. I got no blue flags. I always respect blue color.

    Kennett, I'm very sorry for turning your car around in Casio.


    - I perceived it as we raced for position. Isn't the rule that the outside car yields if there is no room when you go side by side? And in your clip it looks like there was a smallish space for your car on the left. But of course I'm sorry for the contact Steeve, it wasn't intentional to go that wide.

    - No problem Alex. You didn't see what happened.

    I will check the replay later and produce a better incident report. Right now I'm on my way to my daughters family in Stockholm, a 450 km drive in wet and maybe some frozen wet. Hope I can avoid contact and going off track :)

  8. Got rear ended twice, no damage. Both in the last chicane, i had VERY conservative braking distance, sacrifing on brakes but gaining on exit.. With engine map 1 i could put throttle down before the car settled.

    Vale: those situations are like a coin toss, it's 50/50 chance, left or right.

    No worries Valter, I know you are normally very good on the blue flags. It's a shame they weren't working. Luckily I wasn't going to get back past Reik unless he made a big mistake and I had plenty of breathing room behind.

    Had a couple of incidents with Peter early in the race. I'll have a look at the replays later and report in.

    1 small incident to report:(

    End of lap 3

    Braking into the chicane I touched Bob L's rear left, this was the lap before Bobs big off, I hope there wasn't any damage that could have contributed to his accident 1 lap later?

    Bob? were you ok after the touch?

  16. TS 846 incident with Peter.

    Peter had a spin earlier and came behind me , he had a better exit out of spoon curve and tried a pass on me, then suddenly his front right hit my rear left , my car span and hit the wall with the front first . the car was heavily damaged , the steering wheel was bent and lost the front wing. i had to let everyone pass me as the car was un-drivable.
    After repair i came out 2 laps down :(

    Peter did wait for me , I am not sure what exactly happened there , watching the replay it seems Peter lost control right when he tried the pass.

  20. I think the other tap may have been me, but I can't find it on the replay. If so, sorry and glad there was no damage.
