    Guys, unfortunately I have to remove myself from the list of entrants tonight. I crashed my bike last weekend and although the wounds are healing okay the pain is increasing. Talking for the entire evening and racing really is a no go today. Next on the list (@Buster) can take my spot.

    Ill do my best to have the event for next week up asap and see you all then hopefully. Have fun tonight!

    That's a shame, with Cadwell having a limited number of spots I really thought we would have a full grid tonight...:(
    That means we have 2 free slots. Any late takers? :)

    Disappointing to see so many late minute sign outs. Max one hour before the event start is acceptable so somebody else can take over and sign up but this isn't. Now the field is more or less cut in half.

    Let's hope this is a one time only because of wintertime . :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Some bad luck today. I got punted off the track from behind twice. First was ok... Things happen. Second time, I decided to sit out the rest of the race, but I was disconnected from the server.

    Oh well, next time

    Total disaster for me :( ..I assumed it started at 20:00 GMT like all the other EU events ..my bad for not reading it I guess ...arrived with 10 mins of qualify left. Then I missed the race start and got DQ :( It turned out that this was not such a bad thing, because I watched the front runners and realised there were areas of the track, that I personally needed to pick up the pace on. So was looking forward to race two.

    Race two ..race one ended and I started to move my mouse around the screen, but nothing, my mouse was not working ...so I quickly re-booted ....alas I could not get back in the game, it would not allow me...they say you never stop learning ...

    Congrads to the podiums ...well done all :thumbsup:

    I'm really sorry for that. I definitively had planned to participate today, but really short-term i had an unexpected visit from some good friends here.

    @praxtonio .... :redface: I am very sorry about taking you off the course when I went off in Race 2.
    I should have been more cautious, the car ahead filled my view, I thought there was more room to my right, but there was none. Once I touched the grass, it was over. I was trying to slow without locking in the grass, and to turn, but it did not work.
    Very sorry to have ruined your race, especially so early in :cry:

    ...........................................................
    @Joseph Wright and RD ....top notch broadcast :geek:
    Really well done!

    ...........................................................

    Fun races. Even though I'm a bit embarrassed with the mistakes I made. Not only in Race 2, but blowing P3 in Race 1 :cautious:

    I used to hate MINIs. So my MINI experience is basically the two events held here recently, and a few one offs long ago. But I'm starting to come around to them.
    Think I just need to remember to get my FWD legs on a little bit before race day from now on, maybe cut some of the mistakes.

    Grats to race winners and podiums! Good stuff!
    :thumbsup:

    Sorry guys, I started practice and had an issue with my wheel so had to pull out. Hopefully I’ll enjoy my first race with RaceDepartment very soon!
