Stupidly clicked drive rather than load the setup so disconnected and re-connected to be able too, next thing I know my controls are locked and the car has been moved to the pits. Is this because I pushed a pedal or something?

Started the race a lap down, continued to run and was doing ok then I spun and decided to give up.

I thought I was fantastic! Only finished 17th but I did finish and only had 1 little spin whole race. To the people that crash out on lap 1 or 2 and then quit, why bother signing up for the race?

This, very much this.
We had 24 starting and only 17 finishing. I can't image there to be 7 cars completely wrecked to a point that they couldn't be repaired in pit lane.

Had a really nice race that time out. Not much overtaking but at least I didn't get punted off track this time! I could have probably made a few more positions but it felt a little rude to given it would have been as @Geof and the car ahead of him both pretty much came to a stop to avoid a spinning BMW who seemed to park sideways across the width of the corner, so I lifted and let them carry on. Probably the better option given the 5 second lead they ended up with over me by the end of the race.
I never could quite get the setup right either for this track, it was too responsive and lively in the slow stuff, and very sluggish at high speed direction change, I reckon a bit of work on springs and dampers would sort it, but didn't sadly have the time.
Looking forward to the chance to do another...........hopefully a race on a weekend with wet weather ;););););)

At least you got one overtake ;)
With Bentley, business as usual. Steady, slow pace finishing 6th without overtaking anyone, watching people spin/crash :D

That's true, but I don't think all 7 DNFs had that ;)

@robt100 , I wasn't sure, but that was what I felt while you whole front bumper filled my mirror. So genlteman of you! You earned my respect (gold level).:notworthy:

I had a good time, started 8th, lapping safe while seeing front drivers doing some reckon work outside the black stuff. And then I followed @Paul Glover, for 30 min. I had a real challenge trying to find some pace to get close enough from that Bimmer. Very frustrating on the straight as I was loosing constantly 0.2 s on each of the main straight :cautious:. Great drive and constancy by Paul. With 6 min. remaining, I found myself close enough to give a last try, a sneaky late braking on t1. Happily surpised when I realised that the car had slowed down enough to take the corner. Thx for the race man.
Out of curiosity, did you had tyres degradation as you're drive was looking difficult on the last part?

Thx all, see you next.
