    Hey guys, why not add the newly started WTCC skinpack to your collection. We only have 4 cars in version 1 but hoping to add many more as the weeks go on.

    Great race tonight and very nearly pulled off a miracle but it didn't quite go my way ;)

    I tried to stay out for 45 mins on old tyres, it was the only way I had a chance of wining the race but this is the moment it proved NOT to work and some back markers witnessed my last stand LOL

    I thought I had a car setup but today all it wanted to do was swap ends on me. I reworked it through all the sessions but had no confidence.

    At least it got me a good start!
    And I slipped further and further back.
    I might have been able to fight with Bob but it would have meant spinning out fairly often.
    I chose to drop back further and accompany Tony.
    That made a good race for me, how was it for you?

    Had a great fight with Ariciuc on the Track tonight instead of a fight of stratagies. Equally thrilling. Thanks for two great battles this week @Ariciuc Razvan :D

    And great pace from you @Dennis Phelan I was having to watch the gap behind me which wasn't getting any bigger! I'm guessing you had some pit problems?

    It seems that changes made just before the Tuesday race really were for the good! I didn't stop there though and continued my process of making changes, discarding bad ones and keeping ones that worked and in the end had a much easier to drive car with the same speed.

    I could "almost" keep up :( and could see the guys pulling away every lap at the last chicane, pulling 0.3 sec on me each lap there. But I only lost ground on mistakes. I should say that the mistakes mounted up :giggle:' Pitted for tires and came out right behind Hamad. Closed and pushed too hard in a couple of places even though it would be easy to get by him. Only Hamed will know why he stuck with the Beemer even though it was giving him problems in every session :cry:

    I tapped Hamed in the last chicane and I hope he was planning on going to the pit andnot that I forced him :redface: so I pitted again next lap and came out behind him again :D Now he was on good tires and tougher to get, oh the pressure :devilish: and while I would rather have pulled up and fought, he spun that little bugger right in front of me so I went and took the position.

    I had fun putting a chase on the podium gatherers, I hope Hamed had some too :thumbsup:

    Thanks to all for a fun race.

  19. I always changing gear with handmade sequential gear with clutch
    this time switch to H pattern with clutch and it was really fun:D
    I think charily driving on E46 can save tires for 45 min without pitting and I was wrong!
