    There are some seriously lethal kerbs around this track. I am now extremely familiar with an upside down view of the track.

    Complete opposite here :) Well except for the last few corners, i find them really awkward to get through.

    Not controversial at all. This is one of my worst tracks on iracing and we've got it this week in the Indycar series. I've got Mid Ohio coming our of my ears this week.

    actually i've only previously driven this track on iracing, so it adds to the weirdness factor of knowing some things are very slightly off.

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Unlike most tracks where a chicane was added later, here at Mid Ohio the original track had the chicane and the straight was added later (in 1990).

    I literally have no idea what was happening on the last lap of race 2 coming into the final two corners of race two. I just saw two cars either side of me and tried to hold my line as best I could...

    Race 1 was pretty good fun, sort of stayed where I qualified and just picked up a few places from other people's misfortune. Race two almost seemed like a repeat of last week. Started on pole and went backwards really quickly. The four cars ahead of me had a huge battle going into the last two laps and they inevitably came together in turn 4, I mounted a kerb to avoid them and then it seemed like the whole field turned up in my rear view mirror. It was pretty hard to figure out who was where, I know I made contact with someone in the 3rd to last corner but I've got no idea what happened. :unsure:

    "Remember the name! Tommy Vercetti!"

    Er so lets not talk about qualy eh?:redface::cautious:

    Race 1: good start and a good fight for the first few laps and also with phil and steven, great stuff guys.:thumbsup: finished in 13th after starting last :)

    Race 2: amazing start but t2 got stuck behind teddy on exit and couldn't make the most of it but still awesome. Then i basically followed simon and tried to keep up passing people. Until i got into the battle with jimi and i couldn't get passed him for ages. I got passed by conrad but immediately got by him again. Eventually i managed to get by jimi after getting a good run through t1. It seemed to be his weakness at the time so i was really focusing on nailing t1 to try and outbrake him into t2 and it eventually worked. From then on out i was just trying to gap the group behind me which i managed to do. Looking in the mirror coming onto the main straight for the final time and seeing my team mate behind left me with a smile.

    After a horrendous qualy which meant i started last in race1 i managed to turn it into a p6 by the end of race2. I have never had such an intense race, these clios just keep on providing amazing racing.

    Thanks to all involved as usual you guys did a great job :thumbsup: See everyone next week :)

    Yes we do ! :D P1 :geek:

    Race 1: I had only 1 opportunity to make a move on @Christian Michel. The rest of the race i could only see him take 0,1-0,2 sec a lap.
    And yes I finished Race 1. But with a few corners to go all of you were suddenly gone. :cautious:
    But that's part of the digital world. :sick:

    Race2: You can race at P2 at your own. Or start at the back and meet some people. I must say that race level at the entire grid is quite high. :thumbsup:

    BTW: I did my Round 4 practice at the wrong track. :roflmao: i'm ready for next week.

  19. Two good races after a not so good quali, overall it was very good and the group is very competitive. Looking forward to race more here in RD.

    Good job on the broadcast :thumbsup:

    Edit: Congrats to the winners and shame about Gijs.

  20. Q: Had again a stronger quali with only some smaller mistake. And in this field you are directly some spots behind losing 1 thenth. But P4 was ok on this tight grid.

    R1: Had a good start but needed to lift a bit into T1 to not cause trouble to Gijs or Jimi. In the first laps i had no problem following the guys ahead but after a few laps Jimis pace started to drop and we lost some time to Gijs and Jimi. It was hard work like always to pass Jimi. After this was done the gap to Christian was already over 6sec with Gijs only 1-2sec behind. So i could only reduce the gap to Gijs by 2sec and a tiny bit to Christian. Then poor Gijs had a dico with only 3 corner to go. So it was a bit lucky P2 at the end.

    R2: Had a good start but the middle was already blocked by Christian so a had to stay behind Teddy. The rest of the first lap i drove cautious and at the end i only won 1 place. The only good thing a saw Jimi in the lead and knew his pace will drop and he is not easy to overtake. I could follow Teddy but he got past Jimi quicker and i lost contact. In the final lap i could again only reduce the gap to the lead. But again run out of time. So P5 at the end was ok.
