    Hy Folks,

    I just like to post the inofficial results as I noticed it could be hard to find out the standings if someone reads through the reports but didn't participate in the race. So I hope those persons will have a better understanding of all the stories to be written here... :wink:

    (Of course this standings do only show drivers, who stayed on the server until the end of the race. I think we started with 21 or 22 drivers or so.)
    [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    My report will follow later...

    I was sorry to learn that I helped causing the "end" of Anthony's race on lap 1. I will look closer at it tomorrow and post a video etc, but for now I can only say that I am very sorry for my part Anthony!

    I will write my race report here tomorrow, now it is too late, just needed to post the appolegy to Anthony.

    Congratulations Reik, Tim and Sean.

    Q. 21[SUP]st[/SUP]. A fine 2' 07” lap. I must have messed something up. I checked the tyres, so I thought, but had a flat front right tyre [first “puncture” ever – honestly] and three very overheating somethings. It was an experience, but not a good one.
    I drove the lap in-case others had an issue....

    R 5[SUP]th[/SUP]. A fantastic race. Last entering T1, I enjoyed a lot of racing with many drivers. Nico, Vale, Chirlie, David, Andy, Valter, Kurt, Vince, David Mc and probably many more. Wheel to wheel action, two competitive overtakes, a 360 barrel roll and a fierce battle to fend off David Mc at the end of the race.


    Thank you all. Brilliant!

    No problem Nico :) , sorry we had that contact . I actually was a bit busy keeping an eye on Ramlow who was all over the place trying to find a way past Di Philipo I think, and then at that turn when I run a bit wide to avoid hitting him I did not see from that dead angle that u dived into my right side to pass :( ...

    I lost the front wing and on this track it was a nightmare to pull up the menu to select the right strategy so I was a lap down after I fixed the damage .
    Lap 15 and just when I went out of the scheduled pit stop my brother Joe was on the phone to inform me that we had to move right away to avoid the morning traffic so we won't be late for work :( .

    Race over.

    Congrats Reik Tim and Sean , I will watch the race when I come back home .

    Congratulations Reik, Tim and Sean!

    Q: 10th

    R: 8th
    A few laps in the beginning, I had the sixth place. I can't blame the lost positions because I was pushed off the road or something, I was simply not quick enough. Luckily I kept the road all the time. It was only a few light caresses of barriers and a slow pit stop that I'm not completely satisfied with.

    My constant companion in the race was Nicolai. If I remember right, so we fought for position until the last laps. I did not run many laps alone. Thanks to all who were there to make the race interesting.

    Something happened which was quite disappointing. Someone came completely out of control on the inside after the bridge. He went straight ahead with good speed into the runoff area and disappeared from sight. It was a few millimeters from the ending of my race. I can only say, never do that again, or I will drive by and empty my shotgun in your tires.

    I saw in the replay that I was in your way Reik, I apologize for the turns you had to stay behind. With hindsight one can say you won even though I did not let you pass me immediately(J)

    In conclusion, it was a super cool race with many fights. It does not get much better.

    Soon it's Suzuka. It will be fun. See you there guys.

    Grats Reik, Tim, Sean and all the finishers.

    I had like many others a great race with many battles, but instead of writing the report I made a video instead, it contains all the highlights (and lowlights) of my 35 laps long race.

    It contains good racing battles with Valter, David T, Peter, Chirlie and or Vincenzo (same skin) and Christian R. It also shows the 3 incidents I was involved in, with Anthony I, David T and Chirlie. I also included my poor attempt to pass Vale (he did everything right) which ended in me spinning the car, I also did this one more time all by myself. My pit stops are also included, where you can see that I was surprised to see my limiter turn on when exiting :)

    Enjoy, I have not spent too much time fine tuning the editing :)



    My comments regarding the incidents: See this post.

    Nice video. I hope for a continuance of the fight at Suzuka.
    The livery of that blue and yellow super fast car car was nice:) It looks smart on camera.
