    I want to thank you guys for this evening (night) :D
    Small nubers of players but once again i spend great time whit you
    Many to lern for me :D
  17. For the first Evo V8 Supercar race on RD, this was extremely enjoyable.

    Qualifying: I always do better in small fields, so I qualified 3rd behind Warren and Yves.

    Race 1: I took advantage of the start confusion to assume the lead on the first lap. It was short-lived, however. I was rudely interrupted by my crew chief uttering those four words no-one wants to hear: "Your engine is overheating!" Temporarily distracted by this annoyance, I pushed too hard out of the last corner and stacked it into a wall. End of my race. :doh:

    Grats to Cam for the win.

    Race 2: I started 3rd again, and took 2nd at the first corner, settling in between Warren and Yves. Yves eventually caught up to me and I was passed. The middle stage of the race was uneventful, but in the final laps Cam sent my heart racing. A pity we couldn't take the battle all the way to the finish, Cam. I finished 3rd, indidentally my third podium finish in as many months.

    I love these cars. I'm already looking forward to tomorrow - a bigger field will definitely spice things up! :D Congratulations to Cam for the overall win, and good racing from everybody! :dance2:

  18. It must be Valentine's Day, Rhys!!! :love2: :rose-dead:

    Race report later...

    Our first event with these V8 Supercars went very well, no major problems encountered with the mod. Well done again Gunthar, it works great.
    These cars showed that they need special care in applying power through these flowing turns, hit the gas too heavily and you are a gonner.

    Qualy put me P2 behind a super lap by Yves.

    Race 1: Very short unfortunately. I was waiting on the start line, looked away for a second, and suddenly heard Yves roar off the line. I instinctively hit the gas thinking it was green light, then realized Yves had gone waaaaaay early and I stopped again. This gave me a Stop n Go, so I pulled into the pits after the first lap and got confused about how to do it. While looking at the pit menu, my car was shut down and the race was over.
    Spent the time watching the battle for the lead between Cam and Piotrek, very close for most of the race till Piotrek went wide on turn 1. Grats to Cam for his first win, and the first ever win for the V8 Supercars at RD. :clap:

    Race 2: Started from P2 next to Yves again, but this time we both waited for the green light :laugh2:. I fluked a rocket start and jumped Yves into turn 1 and opened a small lead. Yves and Rhys then had a battle of the Holdens behind me, allowing me to open a handy 10 sec lead. Apart from one heart stopping and huge mistake in lap 6 (downshifted to first accidently at the end of the runway and went into the turn sideways across the grass), I had a comfortable and clean race, maintaining the gap to Yves and even pulling away as the tyres wore down.
    So we managed to get Aussies winning both races. :)
    Grats to Cam for the overall win. :highfive:

    The only issue I noticed was that during the races the countdown timer was weird, huge numbers, but I suspect that is a problem since the new EVO patch.
