  15. Hi. Sorry guys, I have so much work that I cannot participate. Please sign me out! Thank you and have a good race.
  16. Thanks for the race guys :)
    6 peeps with this awesome car and track was a little disappointing but as it turned out we were all pretty close in speed so it promised to be a good one.

    Race report and Vid later...

  17. Only 6 people is dissapointing, but it was still a nice race.
    I had some battles with Kimi early on, but after passing me on the start/finish straight he caught me off guard by braking a bit early. I was afraid I was going to hit him so I went to the outside but I hit a bit of grass and went off. I managed to recover and end up just behind Claes and we had some nice battles.
    Grats on the win Kimi, you were just out of reach you consistent bastard.
    & Matej shame you crashed on the 1st lap :(

    Thanks for racing guys, I hope more people will turn up next time.

    Well, my race ended in 2nd turn of 40 min. race :( , when I tried to avoid the car, which came from my left side and after that, I smashed my #11 on the wall. Bad, bad start from my side, a lot of fast guys around me and pure racing accident. Not happy, but what can I do :)? It is good, I didn`t collect anybody with me. Grats all and cya next time.

    Guus, grats for your qualy time and really too bad, I crashed so early :(.

  19. Great car and great track! Really enjoyed it!

    So 3rd on the qualifying, that was good!

    Matej got a bad start so I was 2nd on the first corner! Sadly on the second corner Matej hit the wall hard and retired, dunno what's happened there. But then me and Guus had great racing for 2 laps, I passed Guus on the main straight, then he made a mistake at braking and went wide. I was leading now but Bill was right behind me. Slowly started to make gap to him. But then apparently he crashed and retired. Now I was able to control the race, so I saved tires and fuel, and made no mistakes. And took the win!

    Thank you and see you again! :)

  20. Sorry guys, no Video this time. Trying to record the replay with Fraps but it uses sooo much memory. My laptop hasn't got much left and halfway through Lap 1 it starts to go all choppy. I wish Afterburner worked with this game but alas it doesn't.

    Q: 18.5XX and 4th. Was very happy with my time as i had little practise. Pole was a high 17 from memory with places 2-5 all separated by a tenth or less between each. Close...
    R: Good start. 1st, 3rd and 5th also good starts but Matej in 2nd had a "Mark Webber" start. Sven-Arne in 6th a steady start. I slipped into 3rd by T1, ran just a touch wide T2 had to back out of it a split second so lost a little momentum. The replay showed Matej kept his foot in behind me and moved right to come around my outside with better momentum but lost control :(
    Don't remember much more, i was very tired. So tired in fact that approaching the half way mark of the race and in 2nd, going up the hill long straight approacing the finish line i simply understeered and smacked into the right side wall before the pits because i was blanking out and forgot to turn with the track. Then i bounced across to the left and bang again...broken suspension then blew my engine. Just before this i started to lose seconds per lap to Kimi the leader by eratic driving. Oh well, a good lesson for the kids out there..."Fatigue and speed is deadly".

    Congrats to Kimi for the win, thanks to all who raced and to RD for putting the show on ;)
    Until next time boys, "Sayonara".
