    The clown was me. After the incident I asked sorry on TS, but I suppose that you wasn't there and I don't write on chat becouse is forbidden during race. I try with this image to explain my situation and the reason why I moved forward instead that wait. I was with the car in the middle of the track and I misjudged to evaluate that enough space was to permit a car to safely pass away. I'm realy sorry about that but your reaction on track after that accident was unsportsmanlike.

    Jussi has said it all perfectly, in my opinion.

    We have to remember that we normally have a grid of people with very different skill levels, so everyone has to adapt. This is why I think the club races are great, since it allows the slower guys to learn how to stay predictable while being overtaken by the fast drivers, and they can also learn from them - all while being in a laid-back environment.

    About the chat: Martin and Daniele are right; according to the RaceDepartment rules (both for club races and leagues), using the chat is not allowed during qualifying and during the race. I use it at the beginning of each session to make some announcements, because TeamSpeak is not mandatory and some people don't join it.

    To be honest, it is easier to make all the announcements on TeamSpeak rather than type it every time on the in-game chat. Also, I must admit that I have not been very dynamic while on it, as I am pretty bad at driving and talking casually at the same time, but I will try to make the experience on TeamSpeak a bit more enjoyable by engaging people to have a conversation :)

    Usually the same 6-7 people stay and talk at the end of a race, sometimes for over half an hour - everyone is welcome to stay longer too and join in the conversation, if they have the time :)

    For the race I start 8th with an amazing qualify to me. Good first lap, but on T1 on second lap, a missile hit me and from 8th position I rejoin track on last with car damage. On next lap an incredible accident with almost 6 cars involved appiars in front of me, I avoid all car spunning and colliding, but on the next turn an other car spun just in front of me and I can't avoid the impact, so pit stop for damage repairs. Another two lap and the accident of the previous post, with another car damage and pit for repairs. So only blue flag situation training for me.

    That sounds like a roller-coaster race, SkyMarshal :roflmao:

    Hopefully it will be more stable for the next race, I think you have passed the blue flag course now lol, and your pace is good so with a good consistent race you could be in the top positions.

    No worries, I thought that I missed the brake point :D Was a good code brown moment though but no harm done!

    Not confusing and sending mixed messages (no pun intended) in the slightest ;) Especially since until recently, we were always told we have to be on TS.

    But, again...whatever.

    (And sorry, Daniel, I realize this likely has nothing to do with you personally whatsoever.)

    TeamSpeak was compulsory for various reasons, and we used to see on the race threads that TEAMSPEAK IS MANDATORY in big bold red letters :) From my understanding (and I might be wrong) it was at least compulsory in AC because of trying to figure out who would be in each car, to avoid mismatches and people not getting the car they signed up for.

    Apart from that, I must say I don't know, as it has not been compulsory for a good number of months now. I do think TeamSpeak helps in terms of communication, especially in case of an incident, where you can quickly say sorry and communicate with the other driver(s) involved so that the Golden Rule can be respected and applied easily :thumbsup:
