  1. Well great practice, noticed my graphics card have a few problems but anyway.

    Quali- great didnt expect 11th on my first time back really since season 5.

    Race- bad start but it was all fine till lap 3 at the end of it my game frooze and then came back and graphics went messed, was able to get to the pits and fixed damage and the strange graphics. Then next lap same thing same place, so i was out.

    sorry to any one caught up in my computers small self destruction moment but iam just about to buy a new card. (this was the excuss i needed to get one haha ;) )

    Hope you all had a good race and cya next time out

  5. Congratulations Reik, Tim and David T!

    Q 21st or 19th? not sure now...

    R: A very lucky 12th. I made a very silly fuel mistake and ran out of juice just as I approached the line to finish; splutter, splutter...

    Great battles. Thank you all. More latter maybe. :)

    and the more...

    A great race! :cool:

    I made a critical error in deciding upon my fuel tyre strategy; I didn't realize the race was 55 laps long and not the TV version of 53. Doh! I did two stops, 90/ 60 /60 on softs. One lap short on fuel. Confidently I crossed the line at the end of lap 52 and knowing I was a lap down I then discovered my error as we kept on racing. Uh oh, 7L is not enough at full throttle for two more laps!

    With Vincenzo chasing me hard it became impossible to continue flat out and finish the race when on lap 54 leaving the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] lesmo the fuel gauge read 1.7 L and falling. Vincenzo passed me into Ascari and my car spluttered over the line just ahead of Nicolas a short time latter. Yippee and phew! Lesson learned, check the session info in future :redface:

    I had some awesome battles especially with Vince toward the end, plus the one all important competitive overtake. Pit stops changed positions on both occasions and somehow I benefited each time. Pit crew did good work. Raced hard with several drivers and it was a pleasure with all concerned. :cool:

    good race all

    qual - 4th, couple of errors but happy enough with that.

    race - 3rd, managed to get past sean in turn 1, then tim on the 2nd or 3rd lap so sat behind reik for the first stint in 2nd place, made my first pit on lap 17 and missed my pit box, this gave tim and christian enough time to pass me i came out and made up time to christian and passed him at the 2nd chicane when he spun out, from then on it was 3rd place all the way, missed my pit box a second time later but not by as much so kept 3rd, made very few mistakes during the race which is a first for me, hopefully it continues.

    cya at singapore.

    I finished the race and this is a goal:) but is only satisfaction in this evening for me, I tried monday on our public server and I did my pb and galvanized/excited I did a bit of lap with race setup and run in 1.22.6 so this evening I was thinking about good race but not so,more 1,5 sec in Q and R. I found the track a bit more slip (mine impression) i do bad Quali and race aarrgg disaster after start Im in battle with Peter at lap 3 a bit of car in 1st chicane someone spin so I brake but I hit Peter , I was gentle touch you in the back :D. sorry Peter.
    After this Peter gained on me 5sec. tried push but no chance in Variante Ascari all the time goes in spurts and one time seems my car blocked on track, was thinking about connections , again in Roggia blocked a millisecond is short time but is ok for a spin,one time when i was leaving Parabolica too wide and go on sand, sure my fault this time:) .K guys think is better I stop here my report because at the end if I say all maybe more mistakes that laps on track:D.

    Congrats PODIUM Reik Tim David

    Thanks to our Race Director and rain-man Daniel for event see you on next track

    Q, I was convinced I'd cut the first apex at Ascari so I esc to pits, having checked the replay.... guess what:redface:

    R, So started last, got away moving to the right, had a little sideways moment on the dirty line but scooped it up and motored down to t1, pulled up to a standstill and waited my turn to go through:tongue:

    After that it was great fun all the way to lap 27 when I had a little graphic glitch in the middle of Ascari which caused me to cut over the second apex at a strange angle, got a bit airbourne and lost it on the exit, hit the wall hard and lost a wheel, race over

    Grats to Reik and the rest of the podium and a special mention to the following..... Ant M, Bob, Valter, Kurt, Peter, Charlie and Andy... we had fun:cool:


    Jim

    PS. I've recently installed 2 SSD drives which work great in general use but I have experienced a few little graphic stutters while racing, I've no idea why cus they are super fast compaired to the old drives?

    Q : 18, spot on

    R : 14
    I had an incredibly harmonious balance in the car. The car flew on the straights. It felt like I had jet fuel in the tank and the tires had a tremendous grip. I was afraid that the distance markers would be carried away by wind suction and hit some innocent spectator. The only thing I can complain about is that many pilots insisted on driving faster than me.


    Singapore, haha​​! It will be my chance to take a horrible revenge!
    Then I'll have even more speed in the car and nobody will be able to touch me.

    CU there

     
  18. great vids just wish it never showed my spin on start lol
     
  19. Cool video's guys :cool:
