As per Allan ..pressures are the thing with AC ..if you get the green tires also, that is great ...but always work on your pressures ..sometimes I have messed with camber to try and get more heat ..it just does not work..Pressures George, stick with that.

I am also using his setup with a few adjusts to suit my driving :thumbsup:

I'm really sorry for the incidents I caused in both races lap 1. I usually make it clean, but I just couldn't get it together on lap 1(s) today. Maybe I shouldn't have raced today

Sorry for John, Pattrick and Fazzi for hitting you in first and second races ... I tried too much in the first race to get John and Pattrick in one corner but understeered massively. Fazzi - Car Radar said it was clear so I thought I have space to take the apex. Saw the reply and I just didn't leave enough room.

Consistency. It's my biggest challenge. I just can't get lap after lap after lap ... There must be a mistake or something ... too eager to race ... maybe I need to slow down ...

No problem, Raresch. That's racing. I find it very hard myself to be aware of all cars in the first turns of the race. Maybe VR will help but with my single screen it's alway a challenge.

No worries Raresch, as Han said above, it was a racing incident.... a slight lock up pushed you a couple of feet offline, otherwise you'd have got us:thumbsup:. I was slower in due to Axel taking the inside, Helicorsa showed you at the last moment as I tucked in behind him and I tried to give you a car's width. But most of all, it's great to see you getting so much quicker after all your effort. Unfortunately:whistling::p

There's something really special about these week-day races (IMO) that Craig puts on, in that, you know if there's an incident, it was a mistake, not malicious in any way. Thanks to all of you for such great racing.

So, @Craig Dunkley when do we have the glorious DTM Calibra at the Hockenheim (or any other venue!) event that was cancelled a while ago, well, hm hm? :ninja::p Superb car, selfishly, would love to have a bash with it again.

Thanks for tonight Craig, really appreciated:)

Thanks for the racing guys, great fun :D ..The first race never lasted long though, I lost connection after around 3 laps :( ..second race was great, managed to bring her home for a respectable position.

There were good battles throughout the field, that is always nice to see ...this is why I like to have at least 10+ drivers on board, this usually means a good spread of skill level in the event :thumbsup:

Next week is totally different, just trying to make sure that everybody is catered for ..we take the Audi RR (VLN) for a sprint race (4) laps around the Nords ..it should be a blast, I hope that you will all sign up if you a free.

Congrads to the podiums :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: and congrads to all those that had fun and managed to finish :thumbsup:

I've just watched the replay. Did you slow down for me @ start/finish line? Directly following the crash I somehow managed to destroy my engine, so my race was over. To ensure that I could watch the replay I exited the game. Unfortunately, that means taking off my Oculus/headphones to walk across my room to my PC desk. Obviously I'm unaware of anything that is being said to me. The same applies to gaps between qualification & the race - I hope people don't think I'm being rude when i don't answer - it's down to age & too many mugs of tea :cry:

Yes, I did slow down for you. Because I knew it was somehow my fault, going too fast, understeered into john and then you hit me because I was in the middle of the road. First I saw you on the grass with the nose pointed in the right way, but then I saw you spinned. I just thought it was somehow my fault also, I don't know.
I was a little bit angry when you just went out of the server :O_o: Didn't say anything, thou. So you're fine :D
P.S. What should we do to not hit each other? :)) I think there is only one or two races where we are one next to each other and we didn't hit, crash or something :)) Almost every time we get fighting, in first turns, we hit :confused::confused:don't know-how. I have to race more, with AI also, to have more clean overtakes. I usually take an alternative line too hot or too late and I understeer in the guy in front or something. I don't want it. I am just too eager to pass and I make mistakes. Understeer in most cases and then oversteer.

Yes was certainly fun. And what a great overtake from you in that last turn:thumbsup:. Very well executed!

And thanks for organizing, Craig. I'm really beginning to like the Skippy.
