The grand finale :)
You guys might have noticed that Druids hairpin isn't on the cutting hotspots list anymore. That's because there's no advantage to be had. Watch out not to accidentally cut the apexes of some of the corners on the infield because you'll get your tires dirty.

Honestly if it's such short races I find 3 commentators to be cramped (only once you hit above an hour it's really viable), so I'll be there as backup beforehand but as soon as it's sure both of you can make it, I'll let you run the show since as Tobias said, I know literally nothing about this series :p

Had to nope out of this one. Three incidents on the first lap with no fault of my own is just too much for me. Hope the race was a bit cleaner in the later laps.

So for the first time I've not finished the race. Was doing ok and then lost it on one of the corners and kept making stupid mistakes at pretty much every corner. Completely lost fun factor and the whole experience became just a frustration. Decided to abandon the track as there was no hope for a reasonable finish and big chance of ruining it for someone else with my inconsistent driving.

Thank you all for all those races, thanks to staff for a great event and congratulations to everyone for a great racing atmosphere and respect. Hopefully we'll race together soon again!

Yes it's me, man you're too dangerous, srsly, 2 time you hit me at the same turn !! You hit me to put me out off the track and you didn't had enough fair play to don't overtake after this. I mean, it's a race ok but even in race, we have to be fair play, i also hit a few time some cars, i never overtake after that.

I can try to do it. (I have all the replay btw :D).

Edit: finally no, since the end of the race my connection doesn't stop to go away and come back again lol.

I don't suggest this to a (completely) un-trained person or a person not being used to it, a bit depending on the track this can be quite intense. :) [Especially both races in Brands Hatch were.., but for me it's fine. No problem. If I was 59 y. maybe then.. :).]
I had not the very best pace here, even earlier on weeks ago in RSR Livetiming. But at least it ('n' I) was quite consistant again and P11 is overall quite nice, after testing around with the setup(s) I ended up using my setup out of the Brands Hatch Indy race with just changes / an update in the dampers setup tap. Since I knew best what to expect from that setup.
Started testing a bit late, only today 45 Min. previous the practice session I started driving around this track.
But that's no excuse, at least I already knew the track.

Thx for all the effort, for bringing up such a great championship, broadcasts and everything !
