    I don't recall any contacts for this race - if I am wrong though do correct me so I can learn and apologize. :)
     
  6. Hit Luneski in T1 after start sorry for that Bob. No other incidents i think, have to check replay.
     
  7. Lap 13 ..TS: 1189 ...incident with Geatano..

    Me and Nico were in very close fight, coming out of turn 5 , almost flat out , i suddenly noticed Geatano car parked sideways in the middle of the track , i had so little time to react to decide which way to go and in this fraction of time i could see that his car was backing towards the left side wall so i stayed on the far right side very close to the wall but right when i did that he came back towards me and blocked my path. i had no chance but to crash into him .. Game over.

    I really do not know what to say about that, but I waisted what could have been another good day...

    I'm feeling very sad for all those DNF's who didn't make an own mistake. :( Just too much today! :oops:

  11. Ended my streak of 4 incident free races. The person in the grid spot ahead of me was slow off the start and I brushed him as I swerved to avoid him as I was going by. Very sorry, will check the replay to find out who.

    No problem, it wasn't my day anyway :)

    One small incident at T1 lap 1, I slowed a lot to avoid the two spining cars infront, two cars behind were racing so I got a whack on the left rear......

    The track decided not to put me in my grid slot! but rather 3" infront of Eliezer and very close to Nico so I had to wait a little before moving to be sure of not steaming into Nico, then when I did get going a got a bit sideways and scuffed the wall

    Anyway, now for the big one:(

    I was struggling around with my wheel off centre after the T1 knock, at the end of lap 10 (TS997) whilst changing up through the gears on the start/finish straight my car suddenly goes left..right..left and into the wall !!!

    I have absolutly no idea why?????

    The result was that before the esc button could do it's job I had totaly wiped out Valter and Eliezer:(:(

    Really sorry guys.... i don't know what to say:(

    What really worries me most is... I've tried to message Valter on steam and Facebook but with no reply... I think he's really P****d off:(

    No problem Mr. Brownstone. It looks spectacular in the replay, smoke and flying debris everywhere :) But don't make it a habit mate :)

    Wow, looks like the game simulating a sudden suspension failure! I don't think the game does that but would be an explanation. Looked really strange in the replay! (Like a player on a public server suddenly loosing motivation :) *bad joke*)

    I'm still at a loss to explain it Reik, I don't think the game simulates total suspension failure? I'm tending to think it could have been a wheel clitch, something USB related maybe?

    No problem mate. I was too quick of my spot and hit Eliezer, Sorry Mega. I think we had a sleeper further ahead.
