    its refreshing to get back to the no drama no BS of the sim racing community, compared to other games.

    So sorry for putting you out the race mate. As I left the pits I got terrible screen stutter. Didn't know where the car was going to be. I wanted to stay right and slot in. It happened during practice session too. Very unusual for me and my 'What should be' a super duper PC. 6 cores and a 640 gfx card it sholud not happen. Sorry again.

    ...RayL.
     
  14. No problem, I was a little bit irritated at the moment but don't worry :).
    Anyway I had direction and suspension problem so you have shortened my suffering lol
     
  15. Yep, thats' exactly what I went in the pits for. Went off at the very same corner after getting left rear wheel off road. I did not realise I was so far left and at the time thought it was an over zealous Yves. But no, all my mistake. :)

    Back to the moment when I caused you to move over: when the screen settled I was up a hillside. I gave up up it. The car never felt right from leaving the pits, whether it was PC problems or, not?

    Second race was fine, no problems at all with the hardware. The race was OK. Half way through I was in 3rd 30 secs ahead of a bunch behind. Then I noticed Yves clawing me in. Someone must ahve been keeping him back for the first half of the race?

    It's been a long time since running this track, it was nice to return and these cars are the greatest here.
    My setup was almost spot on from a garage in Istanbul, longer legs and some tire care and it was a dream to drive.
    On Teamspeak, I helped newcomer Jim Martin get settled. We went over pit and chat presets, pitting and anything that could keep him out of trouble.

    I always Q with a full tank, keeps me honest.

    R1: A good start and good luck at the end ofthe esses as two ahead go off and I'm in pursuit of Leonardo. He gradually pulls away as expected and I keep Ray at bay until he's passed by Yves. I'm caught and I do all I can to stay in P2 but I enter the esses too fast and make a run down the ravine allowing Yves to go chase Leonardo. A good gap back so I take it safe for the rest of the race.

    R2: A fair start, for some reason I think that going to the right pf Marcin is going to do me good. Thinking again I move behind him and then to the left. Cars ahead seemed to slow rapidly and I looked to get away on the right side which worked but it was tight with Marcin catching my bumper as we both braked. It was a much rougher start than I expected. Leonardo and Ray were ahead and on L2 Ray overdid the entry to the esses and had to chase me again. Yves came back thru the field, passing Ray and closing on me when I Overdid the esses again but I pounded away till with two laps to go I put a wheel off entering the esses and thought I was a gonner. Got it straightened out and no more mistakes.

    Great drives Leonardo!

    Yves looks good in SEAT yellow, doesn't he guys?

    Thanks to all for coming out, Yves for running the event and RD.
     
  17. Twas massive fun lads. Might do a short video from both of my races
    @ Dennis during the 2nd race was so tight into the 2nd corner so sorry for causing any problems, not sure if i got a slight tap from behind or if I just lost it on its own really...

    Marcin, We were both hard on the brakes trying to get to the right and around them. Sorry I had to squeeze you like that. I could see from replay that you were a bit loose when we touched, Looks like Yves was caought in the rush and tapped on the rear and across the track. He did wait for you!

    Please, vid!
