    No incidents that I am aware of. :)

    However, I had a really odd lag/ spike very close to the end of the race. I thought I saw someones car flash [appear then disappear] in front of me right before the second chicane. i do hope nothing damaging occurred to whomever that may have been.

    Edit: I believe it was Bob Laube, but fortunately there was no apparent contact or damage. :) The Server replay will tell the story. I hope that i didn't scare you there Bob ~ lap 53... I was fearful at the time of the Aussie Internet lag spike

    There was a situation with Kurt, where I saw the car I was chasing easily pass Kurt with me close behind (but I didn't get past, I was unsure if he let him past because he was one lap behind or if he had made a mistake, in those few sec I didn't know if Kurt was a lap behind or if I was racing him. Either way I stayed behind him and waited for an opportunity, but after some strange manouvering (were you trying to let me past?) he suddenly lost control and spun the car. I was quite close to him at this moment, and even though I felt nothing and didn't think we touched I feared the worst. This is how I remember it, I have not seen replay yet.

    So, hopefully no incident to report, but I need to check the Kurt-situation before I can conclude.

    No incidents to report :)

    Edit: @TS 1600 I tried to make a pass on Nico Rouge, I braked much too late, went down the inside and straight on over the grass, Nico retained the position, no incident occured but it was a bit of a daft move

    Me and Valerio Vinassa.
    Time: 2642.
    After second chicane.

    I was chased closely by two cars when I suddenly saw Valerio in front of me after first chicane. I prepared to pass him right after the 2nd chicane. I entered the chicane a bit slower than usual, because I was already so close to Valerio, and I expected him to either stay on the driving line (in which case I would overtake him from the left side) or turn on the left side of the next straight (in which case I overtake from the right side). Instead, Valerio stayed in the middle and did not accelerate after the chicane as usual, which led to me not knowing which side to choose and running out of space resulting in back-ending Valerio with speed difference of 15-20 km/h.

    I was a bit hasty there, but I think cars being lapped should try to behave predictable. Staying on the driving line, and accelerating and braking in the usual places is usually the best choice for a car being lapped.

    Valerio, I am sorry for the spin that you had, because of the incident. But I think your car was ok after the spin?

    I decided to let some time pass before commenting on this so this is not out of anger or anything
    but in my opinion It's respectless that you talk exclusively about yourself after ruining someones race after only 13 laps
    So at least take some time please to explain what you were trying to do here, because I dont know

    You can't be serious Kimmo can you? You read and signed off on the Pre-Race thread:
    http://www.racedepartment.com/forum...real-79-drivers-meeting-safety-special.48199/

    My view is that you made the mistake . And we don't have penalties in this league as they not needed.

    As Peter says, that's not the way we do things here at Presto

    What we prefer is that both drivers review an incident and communicate with each other in a friendly and objective way, and ultimately agree on what both of them could do differently if the same situation were to occur again in the future

    Other drivers will help to arbitrate if needed

    That's the way it works here Kimmo

    True... he did, what I'm trying to say is that we don't demand penalties here, neither do we apply them

    I do have an opinion on what happend there but I'll keep it to myself for now in the hope that you and Jonas can sort it out between you:), that's the best way
