    Great race guys, thanks! Had a chance to do some laps before the race which probably gave me a bit of a headstart as it's a tough circuit to learn! Even still, I was surprised to qualify P3 and was even more surprised to find I couldn't see any lights on the grid?! I basically just went when everyone else did and I saw a marshall waving a green flag?!

    My race was fairly uneventful as I was gifted P3 when Mikka made a mistake around lap 5 or so. Unfortunately I just couldn't keep up with Christian ahead, and even though the gap came down a bit in the closing laps I think he was just managing his tyres. Still, a good race and it kept me on my toes trying to lap consistently for 50min.

    Congrats to Pauli on a well deserved win and thanks to Craig and staff for hosting!

    Very good combination of track & cars. On a lot of corners i had to lift slightly to make it, that built a good connection between me and the car.
    I seem to do much better with 1 hour sleep because i don't over try nearly as much.

    One backmarker race coming up for those interested:



    A solid race I enjoyed quite a lot, even though the middle part was kinda uneventful, but then the final part picked up and was pretty interesting ;)

    Thanks to @Stephen Gibb for the setup, I had a fairly similar one, but yours was certainly still slightly better and it definitely helped. Shame that you couldn't finish the race.

    Also, a clarification for those that were on TS after the race when we were talking about TS Notifier. I said something along the lines of that I don't really care anymore about who talks on TS. That wasn't really what I wanted to say and I felt kinda bad (and dumb) for phrasing it like that. I just can't talk properly (not just in English, but doubly so in English). What I wanted to say was more that I don't *worry* about knowing who's currently talking as much as I used to back when I was using TS Notifier. Which, at least to me, is quite different from saying I don't care (but it might be just me). Anyway, I just wanted to clarify that.

    Thanks for the race!

    Enjoyed the chase of the Porsche and the last few laps! Seems you had some fun :)

    A question to everyone: how do you start with these cars? I know manual clutch is probably the best but I don't have a spare analogue axis..
    Overwrite traction control? Reduce TC to minimum? Not really sure what to do but I lost several positions before T1...
    Thinking about mapping my joystick on the rim to clutch :barefoot:

    Edit: did a short video summary of my race, maybe you'll enjoy it :)

    You know I'm going to once again take the opportunity to big up the manual clutch paddles on the McLaren GT3 rim ;)

    Enjoyable race for me, thanks to those that I chased and those that gave chase as well. ...kept it nice and interesting, even though I was a bit off pace. First time in the McLaren, and ran mostly default setup due to time restrictions and no practice time, but was fun no less.

    @RasmusP I reduce TC to 0, and I am using the clutch as well. Some of these GT3s (and some from GTE pack too) are hard to get going, especially if TC is on. The BMW is the worst of the bunch, imo. Very hard to get started without reducing TC.
    My problem is remembering to turn it back up before the first turns, resulting in some interesting exits until the raw power reminds me to hit the buttons :roflmao:

    So for some reason you can connect but don't see the cars... Did you do the re-subscribing procedure?
