    Nw. I couldn't agree more with what you say, people who don't value your time and effort needs to start setting alarms if it's a problem remembering what they signed up for. I always try to honor such agreements, and this is why I don't sign up - got a 10 month old that sometimes don't respect her daddys commitments, if you catch my drift. If you could let people book, but also keep a number of slots non-bookable so that one could show up when time comes if real life gives the opportunity. I would at least be able to drive sometimes then.

    I had a disaster. Modified the wrong profile for the race setup. Just before the off I realised something didn't look right. Tried to muddle round in settings and jumped the start lol. Then when I pulled in for pitstop I had loaded a setup with no fuel.

    Can only get better next week. Well done to the podiums and thank you to Craig as always.

    I know on the last corner of either the 1st or second lap, I was on the inside hugging the curb, and another driver on the outside of me. As we were exiting the corner, my car (as every car does through that corner) began drifting to the outside. I was expecting some room on the outside exiting the corner, as I left room on the outside going into the corner. But I ended up hitting said car on their passenger side door and they lost control. I slowed down on the front straight to wait for said driver and I kept my eyes on my mirrors for him, but he appeared to have left the track as I suddenly couldn't see him anymore. After letting the whole field by except the driver in last position, I carried on. My game volume was too loud and couldn't really hear teamspeak that well. I decided to pull off again and wait half way through that lap. That's when the driver in last passed me which wasn't the guy I hit. So I figured the guy I hit must have left.

    I apologize for ruining your race if that was you. If not, I apologize to that driver

    Yes it was me, but after watching the replay several times from several angles, it is not as bad as I first thought. Because of the incident prior, there was four cars trying to get round the same corner, I thing the incident was sadly inevitable.

    Had a bit of a nightmare race, lost concentration for a second and was off. This circuit
    is really punishing for just a bit of lazy concentration. ( think it was a double shift, must check to
    see if my slip rings need a clean )!
    One big apology to @Celtic Pharaoh Tariq , i should have, first of all let you pass, i did check to see if you were in a battle, to me you seemed to be completely alone . So , i was struggling to get passed Hernry S . i new if i let up with so few laps, so i ignored the blue flag ( sorry ). So thanks for letting
    me continue to battle with Henry.
    Then to cap it all on the last lap i was going to let you pass out of “respect” and was concentrating
    so much on my rear view mirror, i forgot about the corner, it was a close shave for you. op’s:redface:
    There must have only been millimeters in it:confused:
    i do struggle assessing distance with the rearview mirror, it’s all i have.:ninja:

    @Craig Dunkley thanks for organizing a great race, ironically after all of the above, had a great race.

    No problem Ernie. I saw you were battling so it was fine and you have a right to race with Henry :)

    Haha yeah, coming out of that right hander was a little too close for comfort but thankfully, we survived :D

    Was talking with @Celtic Pharaoh and @Strand79 after the race about tips to getting closer to their pace (I was about 2 seconds per lap slower)...lots of experience and practice was suggested, which is a helpful recommendation of course...but as a music teacher myself, I know that experience gained from practicing the wrong thing will only make you an expert at the wrong thing... :roflmao:

    A few books were recommended...so I'll definitely will be looking into getting these to go more in-depth. Always thankful when I can get practical advice to getting better, so thanks guys :thumbsup:

    Gotta tell y'all that this track is a b**ch. My wrists hurt more by the race finish than they did after 90 minutes at the Nords :confused:

    Wasn't just me then. I normally run my small MiGe at 40% for FFB and by half way my wrists were killing me. I'm thinking I could run low 20's and just claw back towards the front and that plan was going well. By the time I got around to my first pit stops I had major wrist pain and forearm twinge. I dropped my pace by about a second a lap just trying to get to the end. It's the first half of track trying to wrestle the car down the esses that killed me the most I think.

    Shame I couldn't find the NOS button to catch @Celtic Pharaoh last night, but awesome race regardless. Had a good battle with a couple of drivers (sorry I can't remember who it was) so thanks for that and thanks for keeping it clean!

    Here's my qualifying lap for anyone interested. Horrendously sloppy lap, and I probably lost a full tenth at the bottom of the hill with that moment, but still kinda proud - PB

    Thanks for sharing the lap. Merc sounds nice and looks much easier to drive than the 650 :whistling:

    You say that, but its quite slidy on the default setup. I think my setup is fairly easy to drive, but that took a lot of work. If you've got content manager for AC, you can click the link in the description and try it if you'd like. :)
