Here's hoping the grid gets bigger, we seem to have been suffering lately with small grids. Partly due to the VSCC I think and the season. I'd love to join you but Mondays are very difficult for me nowadays

Hello @Nox
I offer myself for a bigger grid. :thumbsup:
I'm coming from R07 and I know what little participation means
and where this can lead...:(
Open wheels are not my favorite but I'll give a try...
Well, I am in.:)

Considering Project Cars has just launched I think there is the usual "new game" interest and I guess that's why the sign ups are a bit low for GSCE. Happened when the AC Dream Pack was released as well. Will be back to normal soon :thumbsup:

First of all, thank you guys for accepting me in this race. :)

This was a good experience for me ("not a race" though since I didn't have the experience of this game and I'm not really keen with open wheels)
I have this game for a week and participated in just 3 races. (2 wins)
I learned a lot from this race, I don't know whether I raced with fast drivers or not since I don't know the members of this GSCE "community".

In the little SinglePlayer practice I did, my lap time was 0:58:00 without really understanding GSCE's setup ways.
I would be really grateful if someone (maybe the poleman of this race) could upload his setup file. The comparison between my setup and this one, will grant me a lot of useful knowledge.

In race, I tried to be very careful, letting the fast drivers pass me, because I think I could be unexpected for them and ruin their race. Therefore, my "goal" was the knowledge I gained and not "the race".

Now, @Antmerino, you asked me "What happened, Peter?" (I think?) As you can see in the replay, in your "fight" with @Connor Duffy at the end of the long straight, you collided with him on the turn and either you braked or the car lost it's speed, you ended up in front of me and it was impossible for me to react at 230 km/h in the turn.

It's a pity for someone to lose his race and become a spectator (I know that feel) but as you can see from the replay it wasn't my fault.

Thank you all for this race and if it's possible, I'll wait for a setup file.:D

Thanks to @Nox for setting up the event haven't raced the F3's in a while.

Two reasonable races from me and I really enjoyed it.

Actually got too good a start in race 1 and tried to gently steer round the car in front and did a complete 360.....:cry:

Anyway, continued on and finished fifth and did ok laps times.

Second race started on the front row due to some DQ's (sorry @Sven-Arne Andersson forgot my manners in the chat room) got an ok start but kept falling victim to that double apex right hander after the hairpin, finished fourth though and happy with that.

More importantly though I had some good racing tonight! :thumbsup:
