    Lost connection to the server in the 1st lap.. that never happened before. Bad luck, my favorite track and qualified 5th so could have been a good result, too.:cry:
    F*ck it, next time ;)
    Edit: Oh and thank you @JoelK for posting your R8 setups, they are awesome! I've used one of them and slightly adjusted it, felt great :)
    Edit2: And thanks @Craig Dunkley for hosting :thumbsup:

    I really shouldn't bother to qualify, every single race I end up last in the first few corners, either because I mess up or (more often, lately) because someone is trying to win the race in the first corner :( Why is it apparently so hard to just be a bit more careful on the start I will never understand.

    That being said, I'm really sorry about that punt in Hatzenbach @GEO147, I kept being caught off guard by your braking and that one time, I just didn't react quick enough :( (Plus I was a bit too eager to try and catch up with the rest, so I guess there goes my moralizing about being careful...) I tried to at least wait for you and give you a bit of a race, but couldn't do it for long. And then shortly after stacked it multiple times, so I guess that's karma. But again, really sorry :(

    I was really looking forward to this race. I should know better.

    Edit: Oh yeah, sorry - thank you for the race! (Just in case - no sarcasm intended.)

    That was really intense. From last place on the grid and finshed 4th. Thank you @Craig Dunkley for hosting this race. Well done @JoelK and @RasmusP! Great race! :)

    I did not race, I felt it would just be to much for my leg ...still had great fun watching though.

    I was sat beside @Ronnie Böhme when he made a slight mistake and lost touch with @RasmusP and @JoelK ...those two drivers were battling for the whole 8 laps ... Joel finished the race about 2 cars length in front of Rasmus

    I kept flicking between all the drivers and it looked like you were all having some fun.

    Shame about the drivers that lost connection ...not sure what happened there:thumbsup:

    Congrads to the podiums :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: and all the drivers that finished this mega drive, especially in this heat :thumbsup:

    Hope to see you all next week for something very different :thumbsup:

    Sounds like a fun race. Annoyed at myself for not signing up in time.

    No problem Martin I appreciated you waiting. But I went off again due to cooked tyres and was calling you through but maybe you weren't on TS as you were quicker than I was and I felt I was holding you up. :thumbsup:

    @JoelK this was definitely the most fun Nordschleife race for me up to date. Didn't crash all race, fought back, beat my pb, got my best Nordschleife result yet and the finish was exciting!

    Just for fun: here's my heart rate from the race :roflmao:
    The spike on the left is qualy. Was a steady 120 for the whole race and throughout the last 1.5 laps (you can see the spike when I almost lost it in the little Karussell), not even my heart dared to lose full focus :laugh:

    First time with the 650S at this circuit, i managed to be as slow as a slow thing can be, but no problems
    with tyre temps. mainly in green apart from the end straight before the finishing line.:)

    Lights went on and I felt my heart beat all across my body! :geek::geek::roflmao:
