    You may need to adjust them to your driving yes. I set up my pressures on 2 or more laps. They need a lap or two to build up correctly but if after 2 hotlaps, they're still under, for sure increase them

    A few hits here and there but no complaints :thumbsup:

    Sorry I lost my TS connection just before first race :thumbsdown:

    @Celtic Pharaoh not a problem at all ...I knew something was wrong because it was a very hard hit and that is not your style.

    Congrads to the podiums :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Hope to see you all next week for a very challenging circuit :thumbsup:

    Many thanks to those who mentioned the last turn was in third, in the second lap I was 0,4s faster than my quali lap, beeing much heavier :)) the best lap was 0,6 s faster then I thought I could do :)) So thank you again. Made me go from P21 to P11. I think that's good enough :D also, the accidents in front helped a lot :whistling::roflmao:

    In the second race, it looks like my car moved when the lights were off and revving the engine. I was in first ready to start, clutch full and revving. I went to settings, pressed the clutch and tried to rev again, and sometimes the clutch is 98% for half a second and then back to 100% :confused::confused: Did someone get this behavior with G29?

    Thank @Craig Dunkley for organizing. those cars are really fun an easy to drive. i am glad I could make it.

    @Raresch you had good pace, you are definitely improving, noticeably, enjoyed our battle.:)

    @Neilski nice to be racing with you again, a real pleasure.
    You probably race every week, but not on AC, took my mind back 2015 and 2016. :)

    At last, a good race for me, makes a change from all the problems this last 4 weeks.
    Well done podium, and of course a big thanks to @Craig Dunkley for hosting the event.:)

    Thanks @Craig Dunkley for organising tonight's event:thumbsup:

    Congrats to the podium guys, and sorry Patrick @pattikins , I stole your place, 2nd race, last lap due to you thinking it was over, no way would I have caught you otherwise;)

    Have to ask, when did the format change from 23 minutes to 10 laps?? 1st race was fueled for 17 laps :O_o: I need the first 7 laps for the Viagra to kick in ffs:p

    Thanks Ernie - nice to be racing against you again and the session was good fun in general. (In fact I haven't raced very much at all in the last year or so but am trying to get back into it :))

    Same here John, was using 22 litres of fuel - In both races (don't ask) ..I used an old server that had been previously set for 10 laps ..this command trumped my time settings ..sorry about that.

    Some were dropping to second half way round the turn, to ensure a fast exit ...totally depends on how much speed you are carrying :thumbsup:

    Thanks Ernie. I was really happy to be in the middle of the pack and race for positions. Being so far behind in the first lap, actually helped :whistling: One gear minus and all the race was changed :)
    Right after you passed (which I didn't expect there), someone yelled "track limits? What track limits". If it were you, I couldn't have taken that corner more to the inside, because we would have crashed. When I saw you on my right and that the track was running I was thinking: " what do, what do" and then Alonso pop-up in my head, over the radio "leave space. You always have to leave space". So I did. That's why I exited the track limits.
    Neilsky was so hyped about this race, that he was reaching with light one. One angry and fast mx5 ;)

    It was not i that said anything, too busy keeping it all together. that’s what track limits are for,
    to exceed if you have an emergency situation, not to gain time.:)
