to be honest, the racing was nice and clean, decent battles and some close action...
Its a bit easy to get right foot happy in the heat of the moment, but all in i was really surprised how tidy the racing was.
One things for sure, some guys are soooo fast in them it gives me headache! Still, wouldnt say no to a rematch with a bigger grid.... ???

I was racing on Lausitzring GR5 today. What an absolute blast! Had a very enjoyable fight with one of you guys for the win. We really need more people playing this sim....;)

Works for me! How about one series after the other on Sundays? If anything goes down on Sunday, I can be there.

BTW, are you on R3E now? I am. Let's jump in a lobby.

I was there for the race last night. I actually had 3 races with the G5s. Had a little practice on the leaderboards beforehand and then joined an empty server where I was eventually joined by Andi and Peter, which was fun. The 2nd race was at Lausitz and there were around 8 of us. Was a good race for me, passed Paul (think it was) and GearGrinder (not sure who that is on here) and then I kinda ran away with it. :redface::D

Final race, yeah, only 4 of us. I got into the lead and let a couple pass me so I could race them but saw GearGrinder 10s or so further back, so slowed to give him some company. :inlove:

Was a shame there were so few of us for the final race. I'd definitely be interested in racing these cars more often, they're a lot of fun. I just need to get a decent shifter to get the full experience.

Ditto on the shifter. My G25 'Sequential' shifter is temperamental, and always has been. I'm hoping to track down a replacement at a reasonable cost before I give up and go to the paddles instead.

Think I'm gonna look to get the Thrustmaster shifter in the new year. I have a G25 too but only use paddles as I'm not keen on the shifter and it's not in great shape anymore anyway.

Here are the first half of the DTM 2013 Race at Portimao 10/12. :)
After my spin there was mostly hot lapping for my part, so I cut that out..

Right, I remember, that was you! That race was so enjoyable, there is so much potential when it comes to online racing in R3E. It's only in alpha, but already way ahead of some other sims when it comes to multiplayer. It can only get better;)

I remember that one! Yeah, thought to myself, ok, not too bad here, keep it clean and i might do alright.. got passed by you and GearGrinder and still thought, ok, no worries, keep it clean and put another 10% in and things get interesting... 4 corners later i checked the gearstick to see if im in reverse! Chris man, you faaaaaaaaaaaast! completely dropped me like i swapped cars for mini or something (no offence Mini's!).


Final race, yeah, only 4 of us. I got into the lead and let a couple pass me so I could race them but saw GearGrinder 10s or so further back, so slowed to give him some company. :inlove:
Damm..... i was hoping i'd magic'd some speed from somewhere :D
