hi !!put me pls 2
Sorry but I can't make it today
that second race sure was bloody
Great race everyone, it was really tense and entertaining! Don't think I divebombed anyone, if I did, sorry! I tried to race as cleanly as I could! See you guys in the M1
I did quite a bit of practice for this and was really looking forward to it but probably an evening best forgotten . Race 1 was shockingly bad. Qualified well but lost 4 or 5 places being too tentative at the start then hit 2 or 3 people including Ross (sorry), being too aggressive thereafter. Race 2 went much better. Started at the back and made up quite a few places, then had a coming together with Paul about halfway through, which I think was a bit of a racing incident tbf and decided to park it. Sorry if I screwed up anyone elses race - I'll do better next time.
@Daz85UK ...It was just a love tap mate, I have no issues with that whatsoever ..you even took the time to say sorry ..this I really appreciate ....I see you coming and I knew you had lots more pace than me, I should have took the inside line but @ that moment I was trying hard to keep it on the black stuff and I certainly was not going to do a last minute block ...
Second race was super for me a lot of the quicker drivers were involved in incidents, hence I was able to make up a lot of places
Congradz to the podium winners ...see you all on Thursday for more fun
@Firas Kiki apologies for tap in 1st race ....i waited after ...have not reviewed the replay yet just could not stop in time....sorry!!! @SimonS did we have a coming together?...kinda forgot already lol....was it turn 1 ??? either way its all good!!
You didn't dive bomb me but the extra speed you carried through that chicane when you came up behind me was just ridiculous!
You hit me? I don't even remember so your apology is accepted!
Good racing tonight guys, particularly race one. Things were pretty close throughout which was great. Race two was a bit quieter when Jose dropped off my rear bumper, but I was happy with 5th.
My only issue was the five no-shows and a similar number of quitters. I don't particularly want to start issuing warnings again, but I will if I have to.
snap, i wish i had more bloody footage
(pls dont sue me over using rd logo )
those barrel rolls in vr arent that bad after some time
About the chicane, a while ago we raced the Audi TT Cups there and Daniel Trapp told me I was losing a lot of speed there so I focused on it and he was right: the chicane looks daunting because you only see the entry over the hill, so the trick is to start turning early and make your brain understand that it's really not as tight as it looks.
...it´s my favourite part of this track...
Heh, watching myself in your footage, you'd almost think I know what I'm doing instead of just trying to hold onto my dear life in every corner I guess I'll take comfort in the fact that on the outside, it might actually look better than I think it does
(Though I'm still pretty happy about the fact that Steve likely doesn't have any footage of me flailing about on the track in front of him in race 1 with the style and grace of a drunken monkey on a unicycle and then making everything even worse by laughing at myself alternatively on TS and on the stream )
But yeah, a fun couple of races. I'm not all that fond of the Nürburgring GP track (I'd much rather race on the Nordschleife), but it was a lot of fun
Oh god i forgot all about it, so sorry!!
Do you know the same chicane in AC? Looking at the footage you can indeed go quite quick over the kerbs.
Try that with the massive sausage kerb in AC
"BMW 235i #3: ready for take off"
That's true, but then again, the kerbs in AC are terrifyingly unforgiving I generally don't touch them with a 10 foot pole: they'll either send you flying or they're slick as ice and make you spin
@SimonS did we have a coming together?...kinda forgot already lol....was it turn 1 ??? either way its all good!![/QUOTE]
No, another Paul although i think i hit everyone in r1
@Ross i think i tagged you going into the chicane but i got the worse. I watched @6e660 s stream and could see myself spinning out in his mirrors
I'll hold my hands up to quitting but my concentration was gone by then and it isn't something i generally do, if ever. Even if I'm running 20th there's often still fun to be had
