    Got thrown out from the server while standing on the grid for first practice start. Never managed to get back in. :cry: Same thing happened between practice and quali but then I could log on again. Made several attempts, restarted computer etc. No luck, just the message "Server connection failed".:(
    A huge anti-climax after all practice laps :mad:

    Tried to log on to one of the rF2 club race servers. Worked fine
    I'll make a fresh re-install of the latest build. See if that helps.

    Anybody had similar problems or got a clue? :confused:

    That podium finish still alludes me!!
    Had a good race, first with Tim, then with David trying too keep a 1 sec gap without making too many mistakes.
    Then lap 44, 4 mins left, last bend, lost rear wing and suspension from hitting a spun car on the apex......:cry:. Oh well 'til next time!!:thumbsup:

    OH Sten, I didn't see that you'd left or we'd have skipped back the session to pick you up like we did with Nicolas, I'm soo sorry about that :)

    Felt gutted for you Mark :( when I made a small mistake behind you and dropped back that was me done, my aim was to stay in front of Tim because I had no chance with you guys in front, when I came around the last turn and saw a wing laying and then a blue car I knew it wouldnt be good, sorry for your bad luck.

    My race was good until I made countless mistakes then it was good again, wierd race where I had the same pace as the leaders but couldnt make any passed, made countless mistakes, and still managed to get 3rd.

    Big grats Martin for the win, well deserved, grats Artyom for 2nd place and grats all finishers.

    cya all at the next race :)

  7. @Stenne , do you use Steam or facebook or something? Having some way to contact each other outside the race server can be good when these kinds of things happen. :)

    Well, that would be good and I have both Steam and Facebook (don't use it a lot though) But I wonder if anyone is having their eye on those sites one minute before race start.
    Team Speak would perhaps be a better option. :)

  9. I keep Steam open at all times except for when the race is actually starting. And I know I'm not the only one who uses it. I'll PM you my profile on there. :)

    Thanks! :thumbsup:
    I haven't used Steam as you do. Is there a chat room or similar? I'll check out how it works. :)

  11. Indeed there is :) There's a friends list in the client, and you can chat with people on it directly. I've already used it several times to ask @David Turnbull for help in the last minute. :p

  13. Yahoo ... first win and second pole in my PrestoGP career :D:D:D

    Qualifying was so close.
    My first sint was not good, the second even better :)
    In the very last lap I was able to go a bit better,
    but the qualifying time was over in the last turn ...
    ... thought the setting are we can finish the started lap.
    Doesn`t matter - pole :D

    Race was really hard but great :thumbsup:
    The first laps Peter D. and then Artyom A. were relentless hunting me :thumbsup:
    Artyom was then the hole race <1s behind me, the most time <0.5s :thumbsup:
    One eye was always wide open looking on a mirror :thumbsup:

    Grats to Artyom and David :thumbsup:

    A somewhat late report but it was an eventful race indeed, so some time for contemplation was needed ;) (And sorry for absence of report on the season opener in Austria. I had planned to skip that race due to lack of practice and a severe cold but I guess the relaxed start from the back without a Q-time made that 3rd place possible with a huge caterpillar bucket of luck!)

    So back in at Hungaroring, I qualified 3rd and was more than happy with that!

    Then, the bonanza commenced...



    I hadn't run much race-fuel-practice so was unsure of the tyre deg and planned for a "whatever-stopper". I guess all went according to plan.

    Huge well-deserved grats to Martin! Grats to finishers and all who are able to join on Wednesday!
