    Was constantly losing FFB because my wheel thinks it is overheating and pulled out. Sorry.

    Was having a dog of a race after a first crash due to a small bump. My tyres overheated and I spun out 3 more times immediatly afterwards. Never managed to get into the pace and was spinning at least once a corner. Plus, I am having a weird pain in my wrist.

    Congrats to the podiums. This is a grueling race for sure.

    Thank you @Kek700 for this amazing battle at the last 2 Laps:thumbsup: the nissan is really fast on the straight so that save you at the end, but the fight was really clean and intense.:)

    Its okay :) just a series of unfortunate incidents but no one was at fault. A SCG had gone off and tried to avoid it best I could but couldn't quite miss it, lost some speed and you were behind me and couldn't go anywhere to avoid

    That was a close run, R8 v 650 and the R8 pulled away on the straight ...I was watching battles throughout the field, not once did I get bored, not even in the slightest, you all put on a great show, I hope you all had fun.

    Congrads to the podiums
    We all know how difficult this track can be, how many laps? 8 or 9 ...and you brought her home, well done drivers, you were all superb :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: .....

    Multiclass @ Le Mans next week, I hope to see you all there :thumbsup:

    I'm sorry about that Tariq & Rasmus. I was way too heavy on the accelerator & spun on the grass. My mind was still on T2 - someone hit the back of me & carried on. I certainly didn't want to spoil your race.

    Don't worry about it at all! I know how hairy that chicane can be after going full chat on the back straight.

    Thanks for tonight's race @Craig Dunkley and congrats to the podium guys, looking forward to watching the replay so I can gain 2 days of lap time:laugh:

    Congrats also to @Kek700 for 6th from the back of the grid, awesome result Ernie... just how many Weetabix do you have for breakfast?!:ninja:

    First time at the Ring, so huge thanks to @RasmusP for all the tips, videos and fantastic step-by-step guides... I only went off once in a big way, though I did have three picnic trips around the armco, Scalextric style:whistling:

    Apologies to @pattikins Patrick, I had a big off in front of you and someone else near the end of the lap, I really hope it didn't spoil your race.

    And in particular, thanks to everyone I had (small!) battles with, proper gents:thumbsup:

    Flowing along quite nicely, :thumbsup:no one to bother me, then one moment of not concentrating, “OFF”.
    Bugger. ( accelerating on those raised kerbs is not advised ):confused:
    Noticed James and John were not having there normal good race. ( luckily for me );)
    Then to make it worse, @Dennis Manke behind me in a Z4.:unsure: i knew i now had got problems. The long bits,
    i did not need to worry about, there I could relax a bit.

    If i had known i had 2 1/2 laps left i would have waved the white hanker chief and let Dennis go.

    Had a bit of luck with @HF2000 and @r!ver_cz scrapping and managed to put them in the way of Denis. I think Han was running on old tyres, me on a fresh set , so I took my time till we got on the old circuit, knowing Han would have to be careful on the
    2 awkward right hand bends before the long straight.
    Then using fresh tyres and the Nissan speed got him before the twisty bits, no chance in the twisty bits.
    Assuming i had one lap left, but had not realised how much faster Dennis was in the Z4, once in the fiddly bits.
    i imagine trying to overtake the Nissan, was like getting past a bungalow.
    After a monumental struggle to keep in front finally managed to find a long straight and off i went on the end of the last lap, only to find i had another lap left. Guess what, had to do it all over again, this time Dennis really meant business.:(

    Really, to be honest, all i had was a lot of “luck” and a bleeding great fast bungalow on my side, being chased by a much quicker “potting shed”.

    Fair play to Dennis, in all that he was absolutely 100% fair especially considering the frustration he must have had to endure. To be so much quicker, then get to a straight we’re he can pass, then see the Nissan inch away.
    If he had got past, he would have soon disappeared up the road.

    Thanks to @Craig Dunkley for putting on another interesting event.

    And thanks to everyone for your kind words, it was just a lot of “good fortune” really.

    PS, just out of interest, even @Celtic Pharaoh
    Tariq in the AMG was slightly slower on the long
    uphill straight. Bit shocked about that.

    Expecting a battle with @RasmusP (Rasmus ) and thinking about what to do about that, especially with the straight line speed of the Lambo.
    Kept an eye on him, but then he suddenly disappeared
    Not that I was ungrateful about that.:sneaky:

    Sorry about the windy script, always starts out to be brief, ends up over wordy :sleep::sleep::sleep:

    :)
