    Do you know if this is this RD's ISP or is it happening just on the "Race On" servers?

    EDIT: or is it just my fault for living at the far end of the very tatty and old pieces of string that connect me to the world wide t'internet? (no need to answer that I fear) :D

    First race on RD

    Race 1 - maybe not much fight but it was fun, Brands Hatch is very nice track. I finish 13 and it is OK for me

    Race 2 - when We were on grid my DFGT stop responding and I must press ESC :doh2:

    Thanks for race and see You next time on another track

    Race 2:- Started in 22nd Finished 8th after a number of battles with Gary L :nod:
    I hope I gave you enough room going into and exiting Surtees :D I did not want to give you as much room as I did Lee :giggle:

    A kind word to all: Please wait until everyone has finished before chatting. It is very off putting having shed loads of chat flicking when you're trying to concentrate on finishing a race.

    Thanks for 2nite guys and to David for setting up.

    I'd not raced since my disaster at the last round of the RDSTL at Brands. I was hoping I could put that behind me 2day, but my problems here continue. My pace was good and was on a decent lap for Qual and a small mistake made sure I wouldn't pressure Lee's class dominance.

    Race 1.

    A good start, but Bob in the 2nd Mosler got a better one and we went into Paddock side by side. A tiny touch lifted the front of my car and I was a passenger in to the tyres. Plum last I managed a quick recovery and made a few positions back and then found a very difficult to pass Freddie Bessems. We battle and I made a speculative move which resulted in Freddie having to catch a big slide (sorry again). I was able to make the pass stick as we battled behind one of the Club cars who I managed to pass a turn or two later. Eventually caught back up to Bob and the M3 in front of him now running 4th in my class. Then Lee sadly lost his connection and I was 3rd. Bob and I had a nice battle until he had a big slide at the bottom of Paddock and I past him on the outside. Convinced he was not close I turned into the hairpin without realising he was still inside. We touched and survived, but I apologised as I would have left room if I'd seen him still there. Then just like last week I cocked up the same corner and hit the wall. Dropping down to 3rd in class and behind the very quick Gary Lennon in the z4.

    Race 2.

    Another good start and the GT Pro's were all over the place as they were behind 2 Sport class cars and I got my wheels into the gravel at the Hairpin and ended up last again:(.

    Battled my way back up to Freddie again, but made a horrible mistake of not seeing young Nicolas flying up the hill and I ran him onto the grass as I returned to the racing line having let a quicker car go by. So sorry Nicolas I had not seen you approaching so fast. Then I started having another battle with Freddie who was covering his lines very well and again in the same place I made contact with him, this time sending him off. I waited at the next turn for him to pass me back. Again my sincere apologies Freddie you were a victim of some of my frustration that I keep cocking this track up:(. You were driving very well and defending your position solidly and I was not being as careful as I usually drive. I then crashed where I ruined my league race totally losing the front end. Decided to limp home, but with 3mins left I had forgot my lack of front downforce and totalled the car at Paddock.

    Some gr8 racing from you guys and some very poor driving on my part. Apologies again to Freddie, Bob and Nicolas for contacts.

    Philip, i'm still recovering.

    indeed you normally beiing much faster. and i thought you must be in love with my Spyker so many times you were kissing the butt of it. ;) :)


    2nd race the start wasn't perfect maybe, but i think there was plenty of room for everybody to race. then a couple of laps lot of traffic jams.
    went on for place 8 and after the sending of could manage to stay in position 11. (so im still pretty pleased with this result on brands hatch)


    Anyway both races where much fun. 2nd better with lot of GT pro behind us in the beginning.

    No probs with connection here chaps.

    Well what a nights racing. That was brilliant..:woop::woop:

    Race one had a great start and managed to take some spots. Follow some GT1's and missed my braking point and duly went off. Lost some places but managed to overtake a few cars. Then had some fun with Philip untill he went off after passing me, I made a mistake first to let him by. Managed to finish 8th.. :woot2:

    Now race 2, I'm on pole due to reverse grid and thinking this is going to get hairy very soon after the lights go out. Was I wrong, No. Made a great start and got half way round the lap before getting a little tap from someone but no harm done there. As the GT1's made there moves I tried to settle down into a rhythm, all going well until I meet Mr Buxton spinging in front of me at dingle dell. Managed to stop car before hitting him and was then duly hit from behind, insurance details needed please. Then had to get back to pits for repairs and ran a lonely race at the back.

    edit: For Stefan B, sorry for the collision when getting back on track. Now watched the replay and it appears you lost your front spliter. So sorry for this;;;:parrot::parrot:

    Thanks for a grt nights racing chaps, very enjoyable. :thanks:

    Thanks to Mr B for putting on the event and RD for making it possible. :thanks:

    Hope to see u all again next week.
