Sign me up please. I've got a skin for the Gillet that I didn't manage to upload in time to get in the pack but here's a link it if anyone wants to have a look
http://www.filedropper.com/gilletvertigo
Just put the Gillet folder in the Sam Hill folder and it should work.
See you all later :)

Great racing, although it was Brands Hatch ;)

Joined an empty server 30-ish minutes early & got in some laps, waiting for Nelson to arrive to destroy my time ;) Sure enough, he arrived and quickly climbed up to P1, but wasn't entirely out of sight... until qualifying that is, when I managed to get into 2nd with Nelson almost a second, if not more, ahead.

A mediocre start & first lap got Michael past me, which made for a really nice battle while Mr. Macau slinked away up front. After some time, I got by Michael to regain P2 - only to screw it up in the last lap's T2, when I glanced over to the TV just a moment too long ;)

Starting 4th, I got a better start into the second race and soon enough, I was chasing after Dennis in P1. However, he put up quite a fight and Nelson closed in on us. A tap while pursuing Dennis and the following decelaration got Nelson past, but only mere metres later, he got into Dennis (or vice versa?), putting me into P1.
With Michael putting up quite a fight once Nelson arrived back at his bumper, I managed to bring it home!

Thanks for racing, guys - see you tomorrow :)

There must be something good to say about the SEAT, can't think of much at the moment. I worked on it for an hour and a half, not bed but never really grooved with it, lack of grip up front, brakes. Still I put a fastest lap for GTC class in it today.

R1: Slowly caught up with the Bjorn / Michael race and got by Bjorn for a lap. There the car started to miss the corners and there I was, sitting at a tire wall with no front aero so to the pits for a repair.

R2: I ran as hard as I could, Bjorn finally ran me down then I tapped Nelson[Sorry!] and we were both off, me with a punctured tire, to the pit again. While there I let the dogs out, great timing huh! Back to the pit one lap later to let them back in, amazing I hadn't been sent to the garage! Tried to keep Andy in sight to the end of the race just for fun.

A lesson in choosing the right tool for the job if ever there was one. The Gillet was good on the brakes and through the corners but as soon as I got on the throttle everything else just disappeared.

Pretty consistent event though. Qualified 5th. Finished race 1 5th. And finished race 2 5th. Both races were down to @Dennis Phelan have some bad luck though.

Need to choose a quicker car next time. (And learn to drive quicker too :p)

See you all on Wednesday :)

Reall enjoyed both races. Its nice to finish in the top six and get points. :)

Race 1 Had real trouble getting past Sam in the first race, but managed it in the end. Hard work though.

Race 2 Saw Dennis behind me and I slowed down ;) so he could catch me up and then we could have some fun ,but he stayed well behind me.
:)

Good fun. :thumbsup:

Meant to say earlier, @Mid-pack Jack 's was jumping about all over the track in race 1. I wasn't sure where to go in case you appeared in front of me and I hit you! Then you disappeared completely :/ and then you came back about half a lap later :/ not sure if this was due to my internet or something else. Did anyone else have a problem like this?

It was your internet Sam, I'm certain. That's why I had trouble getting past you but didn't want to say so in as much words. You were going on the grass, zig zaging, warping in and out and suddenly appearing in front of me. Your ping was right up too in the 500's and kept going higher. It was fine later though.

Hence why I asked you on TS if you could keep off the grass. ;) Remember?
No probs after I got passed you though. :thumbsup:
