Shame for those having problems, sorry for that.

That was good fun!

Both races i started 3rd and both times i got good starts only to have to take avoiding action behing the slow-starting Ivan ahead. Both times i fell back to about 10th, and both times i had great fun battling through the field. There was so much battling in race 2 that i didn't look after my tyres, and my left front dropped to 13%, allowing Pauli an easy win! (plus a couple of offs:whistling:)

Cheers all, and thanks to Denis- Riverside always produces good racing.

Thanks for putting tonight's race on @Denis Betty , really enjoyed it, a great combo:)

Apologies for leaving the 2nd race... I've had this before with rF2 and can't figure it out > 1 or 2 second screen freezes, 5 laps can be fine then it'll happen 4 or 5 times in one lap:O_o: Turned down most settings to below average, I'm stumped.

I was getting that too. Sometimes a car i'm right next to starts jerking back and forward randomly. No idea what causes it as my PC exceeds the recommended specs by a fair margin. Really annoying.

Yep thanks everyone, both races were a lot of fun.

For me, I qualified about 7th. In both races I got lightning starts but in the first race the car in front of me didn't, so I had to slam the brakes on and dropped to the back. Had fun making a few places and in the end finished about 4th, which I think was more because I didn't have any offs than due to any real speed.

In the second race a fast start had me up to 4th at the start but there was no way I was going to hang on to it. Made a few mistakes which made it easier for people to get past but was still fun having the odd tussle, and ended 6th, getting a lucky pass on Denis on the last lap as he was running out of fuel.

Great car and track combination.

I have had this problem and it was a combination of 2 things. Over heating (i use a laptop so isnt ideal for cooling) and the SATA RAID driver needed removing, my game is on a 2nd HDD where as the system is on an SATA. Ended up reinstalling windows on a new BIOS setting, but this could have been avoided if i spent more time researching.
