Today's yellow zone will be in effect for the entire first lap due to the nature of the circuit and it's tight corners.

Hi everyone !, as mutch as I would like to join in todays race I must stand down due to the flue " correct spelled ? " got fever and are out of order. I have also just learned that I will be away for a hole week in the end of month so I wont be able to join in the 2 last races. I am so sorry for this but I feel I must cancel this Cup due to the many races I will miss. I guess you wont even notis that I'm not in the Cup nomore sins I'm so low in the fieldstands and a "newbi" in this kind of races. Again so sorry for quiting out on you all, hopeing to comeback next year whit a bit more experence in this kind of stuff and hopefully a little bit faster in laptimes. I really dont know where to post this kind of stuff sinc this forum is all new to me, hope this will do it. Anyways I will watch the races in live broadcast and wish you all best of luck. Best Regards Andreas Palsson

I wonder if I still should run this championship......

1st race: had a great fight with April which was really fair and enjoyable. I was enjoying the race till than till Sky dived on the inside hitting me which caused me to go off and hit the barrier. Damage..pit... instead of being 10th wa 18th and dead last.... :(

Race two, started as last and gained a few spots cleanly. Some fast guys had some contact which dropped them back. I didn't give them a too hard time to pass me as it would have no advantage at all. It was all close and clean. I was fighting for 7th... yes had gained 11 spots! :) Was starting to forget the first race.... BAM... Manuel decided to dive into a gap which wasn't there... and yes...again ended in the barrier.... with damage.... :(

Great driving.... :( NOT!!! Maybe next race I will use the same driving standards as some peeps do... I doubt that would make me feel better to gain positions like that. :(

I will sleep a night and think about if I want to continue or not....

It's just an unlucky/bad period Stefan, we all had this moments. You're a good and fair driver and you completely deserve your place in the championship. C'mon ! Have a nice weekend and see you next week ! :sneaky:

I'm not going to say much to avoid breaking any rules. :mad:
This event was a disaster for me and not because of my driving. :(

Going to this event i wasn't expecting much as i always struggle in this track but i wanted to gain some points by keeping a good pace and avoiding incidents. After qualifying things weren't that bad and i thought i could get a good result for my overall position.

Things didn't go that well in the races due to things out of my control.
Now it's time to start practicing for the next round and hope everything will be better.

stefan, i'm sorry about that. from my perspective you left a huge gap so i drove inside you then you turned in not realising i'd done that. i don't ever go into races with the intention of hitting people, so if i have screwed up i'd take any penalties i deserve.

on the whole, race 1 was a bit of a disaster, got spun in the first few corners from lots of cars piling into a tight corner. don't know if there was any blame in there, probably just bad luck, but getting back up to 10th set me up for race 2.

race 2 was epic. that is all.

really want to thank april for giving me a really awesome setup!

awesome fun :D:D
