  13. very late sign up, sorry had plans earlier
  14. Well, I had thought that it would be impossible to finish without stopping for fuel and tires, but I proved myself wrong :).

    After qualifying fairly well (can not seem to remember where :p) I went wide in turn one and dropped all the way back to last :thumbsdown:. I figured what the heck, this is all for fun, why not try and not pit? Turns out it can be done! I finished third of 15 starters, so that is quite good in my opinion.

    And where the heck did Oscar come from :O_o:? I have been racing here for two months and have never seen an Oscar Pink in any races before. Congratulations on the victory, Oscar. :thumbsup:

    After keeping up fairly well in 1st training, I suddenly lost 6-7kph in topspeed.. Persisting through a reconnect, I exited the game and obviously, there was some kind of problem as the Logitech profiler had crashed :O_o:

    After restarting the pc, everything seemed alright again and I could qualify 5th. Started fairly bad but others started worse and/or screwed up T1 so I suddenly was placed third behind Justin and Murat - not for long though, as Arne caught up and passed me at the end of lap 1 - it wasn't until then that I remembered I wanted to test stretching 6th gear a tick further in the now-missed second training. Oh well, I guess that explained me losing 3-4 tenths to Arne on the banking.
    Same thing happened with Franklin a few laps on but I managed to follow him somewhat - without really getting an opportunity to pass.
    We both pitted at the same lap (I even thought of leaving out my minimal refueling to gain some seconds but decided not to, in the end ;)) and went out a few places behind before working our way back to P5/P6 - didn't push that much anymore and finished around 10 seconds behind finally :)

    Good fun, though - thanks for organizing, Dennis :)

    Sorry for the mayhem of the practice start. The grid had gotten impressively large and I knew there would be a big mess if we didn't run one.

    I thought I had a good car and I don't think I could have gotten any more raw speed out of itbut I was just the dregs compared to most everyone else. Well, I did learn a bit about braking so the race wasn't useless.

    Thanks to Stefan, Paul and David for making me put out the best I could.
  18. Oh, who am I kidding? A race that epic and amazing deserves much more than my measly post...

    Had a few crazy moments early on in the race :confused:. Luckily, everyone lived through my charge.


    Then Dennis made a mistake that made me really mad and tapped me :p. No worries, my car was just fine, I hope you were okay after that Dennis. By the way, that is no way to treat your teammate :roflmao:! (We both have the Golden Motors cars)

    Here are some more pictures showing some side-by-side racing and overtakes by me. I can not remember who is who in these pics, but it was great fun :D!


    Then when Oscar and I had a bit of back and forth fighting, he eventually hooked up with me and literally bump-drafted me :confused:! Seeing as NASCAR just banned tandem racing in the Truck and Nationwide series, we're probably going to get fined big time for this :p.

    Had a boring drive to the finish, but I got a podium which I am very happy with :cool::thumbsup:.

    I didn't even calculate the consumption and i trusted the setup estimation... opted for a pit because i thought i will change tires aswell... 2 bad choices. Nevertheless, 4th place. If i didnt be so ignorant who knows what would happen with the 1-2-3 battle we had going on for the first 11 laps. Though one thing was clear... my chevvy is a rocket on the straights. :D Not the same can be said in the corners, though...
