    Thanks for tonight's race @Craig Dunkley , enjoyed that - but must admit I'd use mediums next time, I was bricking it in the last 10 mins with @Daniel Nieto closing in for the kill, and watching my tyres and lap times drop faster than a Bride's nightie :p

    Huge thanks to @SOLO59 Dean, super fair racing in the first half, if you hadn't made a tiny slip I'd never have got past, there was so little between us:thumbsup:

    See you all on the next one:)

    Yea John, amazing clean fight we had there! My lap times were at least .500 slower than yours. I knew you would eventually pass, I tried to keep things interesting defending as long as I could. After my little mistake, and you passed me, thats when I could finally achieve close to your lap times by following you. Great driving bro!

    Then
    Daniel was gaining on me with his own quick lap times! He got by me too without much hassle as i made another minor mistake. But again, Daniel and John were lapping faster than me, so I kept my focus on a solid podium finish P3.

    Great race guys and congrats to @Medilloni for the W and @Daniel Nieto P2

    Thanks @Craig Dunkley for hosting!

    Very nice race indeed.
    I had lot of difficulties to set up the gearbox because I discovered the just before the race.

    It doesnt matter.
    Nice and fun fighting with craig, Raresh, hape...
    I even overtake briefly Wolf ! (OK, he has made small mistake after overtaking me :D)

    I had to fight with someone during the all race. Cool :thumbsup:

    Sadly I never took enough notice, but if you edit the race_out .jason file by moving or adding a . yes a . it works ..maybe someone will read this and explain what to do.

    I'll go with the flow Craig:)

    During the week I love the 2x 20 min races, I need to recover from Monday's events:laugh:

    To be honest I don't think 10 mins or so will make any difference, maybe for those with young children I guess...

    2 x 20 might be good ...cause anybody that has had enough can leave after one race or just join for the second :thumbsup:

    Personally, what is complicated is more when it start as the length of the race . As a french guy (applies for other countries ), it starts one hour later as in england, and of course it finish one hour later.
    It may be difficult to race during the week (for example nordschleife race would have finish for me at midnight, which was too late for me ).

    I tend personally to prefer longer races, and maybe start hall an hour sooner and/or no practise time before qualification.(again not to finish to late)

    As much as I agree with you, because I am actually +2 from London's hour, I don't think they will change :( it would be cool, thou, but you'll have less time for practice. Also, summer season means you have longer days, so a later hour will actually be more favourable because they can actually stay longer outside ...

    As everyone is sharing the feelings about the race, I was happy after the race because it was my first race on RD when I didn't spin or get out of track :D which helped a lot. I was 3rd for 6-7 minutes :)) until the faster guys catched me and I lost 4 positions I half a lap :( But I kept the pace and I had a very good margin to the next player. It was nice to drive relaxed and not being stressed to catch others.

    I have tried and it works perfectly for me.
    Great Discovery . Thanks !!!!
    (okay, the qualification looks Strange, but the infos about the race are great !!!)

    I could see that I have made a nice race for my "talent".
    I was surprisingly pretty quick in some sector, intended that my qualification time has been miserable.

    Just to make a trial, i have saved the results.
    Just go to the simresults.net and search for imola from yesterday on the list .
    Result page.

    The name are not complete, so i suppose it is okay for all of us.
    If not sorry, won't do it again. (Ihad no idea how the saved results will look).

    I personally think that it is a great addition to the post race discussion.

    It is indeed very nice.
    The gap graphics is interesting.
    I can see that after the initial loss at the beginning of the race, (starting about last doesnt help !) I was not so much out of pace on the length, which is nice to see
