Sorry about that, that didn't quite go according to plan. I didn't want to hold Christian up, so let him take the inside. But then I got caught out by how slippy it was on the right side there, and had to slow way down to stay out of the wall.... then someone in front of me got overtaken, and slowed down mid corner I think for a cutback and that made me spin trying to avoid it....
no problem, I lost controll myself and it probably made my race lots more funSorry about that, that didn't quite go according to plan. I didn't want to hold Christian up, so let him take the inside.

. Could not do the same to Andre.
Apologies to @Andre Gaida who was making good pace in front of me in my second last stint. I couldnt get past him despite parking on his bumper for more than a lap.
I really should have chilled out and just enjoyed the tow as I was on a 4 lap stint and needed to look after tyres and he was pitting a lap later anyway. But no-after thinking "as long as I'm on his bumper onto the long straight, Ill get a good tow from the Camaro" then enjoying that tow which gave me 270kph instead of 262. I just couldnt be smart enough to allow him more room for braking. I tapped him at the end of the braking zone. So I drove past him and pulled off onto the grass and waited till he got going again. Then I couldnt get it off the grass, so had to go cross country a little. 2 or three cars passed me by.
Thanks @Daiman Patel and
for your work.
BTW where did all the AMG SLS's go. Was there a sale on for gold chains and toupe's somewhere and they stopped?
30kg off the GTR?
Being one of the people you are referring to it was the same for us but obviously it was you guys making all the noise. It was a pretty special event really, 44 starters on a track that has an enormous reputation. The creators (all of them) have done an amazing job even with some of the things that need to be adjusted or fixed. The campfires, tents and signs all created an amazing atmosphere, especially at night and made visiting that armco barrier not so bad. we talked about it on TS but it was something else when the sun was setting, the track looked amazing as long as it wasn't in your eyes at a braking point. Seriously probably the best race for me so far in rf2, It really had it all in my opinion.@Frederic Schornstein
and THE NOISE I forgot to write about the noise.
As I entered the Nordschleife proper 14th in that long tain of cars in your last screen shot I heard a noise I have never geard in RF2. The sound made by that second half of that 18,000 horse horse power grid was IMMENSE. I heard them to my left and had to look. All I saw was labels the cars were out of view. The way the game accurately rendered the sounds of the cars that I couldnt even see as the headed up the uphill straight to the chicane on the short circuit made me draw a sharp intake of breath. It was real. Sounded like a cavalry charge, 26 cars on full noise ready to drive by if the slightest of errors were made.
Yes, I thought tire wear would give the Camaro a big advantage before the race. The Corvette and GT-R will definetely loose a bit of weight and the Camaro has to gain a bit. I will look into tire wear as well, which is a good idea, but in the race there was no big advantage by not changing tires. I didnt change them, but Lars did at the stop and at the end of the stint we entered the pits with exactly the same gap. I will do a few adjustments in the next few days. The BOP is ok for qualy, but the Camaro shouldnt be able to qualy on pole.Dissapointing Race for me...started pretty nice with a good start...think i gained two positions and were on 6th place....well but then Matt Richards decided to drive me off the Track at the first Lap in Turn 4....in a 2 hour race so i lost 5 positions and were in p11...then got back a bit to p6 i think again and then my computer switched to the desktop on the döttinger höhe due to a print driver message......i tried to get into the game but then rf2 exe crashed...and after that i were 2 laps behind...whyever 2...continued for a bit of fun but as i had no one to race it was a bit boring....sad cause i think i had the pace to get back to the front runners....but overall i think the camaro needs to get a bit of adjustment on the tire wear...you guys only changed once right? with the corvette you nearly had to change every stop as you have like 8%/laps...or even more when you are really pushing it. Maybe a little bit more drag would'nt be bad as well, but just a little bit.
