Hi all
Again had lots of fun.

I was second to last on the grid for the second race, looked at the dash and got a surpriseed to see it was a 20 lap against 20 minutes.

Distracted by this, I was slow to get going, (my apologies to the car behind).

I also had a problem with the pit stop for fuel. I received a drive through, when I served the drive through I literally crawled out of the pits almost to the first corner as to be sure not to get a second drive through.

good fun anyway, I am looking forward to next week.
Best wishes
Bob

That probably makes you the first person to realise the problem! I thought Crew Chief was going mad when he said something about my pit window at the start of the race. I was on lap 10 when I finally realised we were only halfway through... :p

Oversensitive speed detection. It was a problem in the sim some time ago, they fixed it, they recently tweaked it again, and now we're back to square one.

Try making sure you stay in 2nd or 3rd gear whenever driving in the pits. Don't sit in 1st bouncing on the limiter because you're almost guaranteed to get a penalty. Hopefully they've fix it again in a future patch.

First race, put the car in first gear and hit the throttle, started moving!? Drive through penalty, slowly come down pit entry while trying to select my Penalty pit stop preset, sit there for a lap pushing buttons and keys trying to change my preset, nothing works continue driving through the pits, penalty was served:redface: guess I didn't need to select my Penalty preset?

Second race I had an epic battle with @Celestiale , Jim kept saying he would make a mistake, but I was the one that was making mistakes, finally he made one little bobble between turns 12 and 13 that gave just enough of an advantage into turn 1 to get by him, Jim was pleased. For the Pitstop I still couldn't change presets so I got fuel and 4 tires.

I need to rebind keys and buttons for Pitstop Presets.

This was indeed an epic battle! Can't thank you enough for the sportsmanship and gentleman racing. There have been several occasions you could have gone alongside if a bit more agressive and you even backed down when I lost the tail and slid a bit once, wow. This is like everyone should behave

Jump starts were added to multiplayer in the December patch, and we've had them activated in the Club since then. You may not have noticed because some races (including the whole Porsche series) have used the new rolling start.

So yeah... no more sitting on the line in gear on the rev limiter waiting for the lights! :p

Yeah, I knew about it, but that was a long long time ago, plus I had been doing Ranked races and they were still using the old way. I'll remember next time, unless I forget.:rolleyes:
