Had never driven a lap of Poznan last week before jumping into the server for the race, bit more familiar with Hockenheim so hopefully will be a bit quicker!

By the way, me and @Bul Knaters are still noted on the driver list as independants, but are now meant to be in a team :)

I love this track, takes me back to the old RD Mini club on race 07 many moons ago! Unfortunately, my front left tyre disagrees...

weirdly, the chicairpin of doom is causing me less trouble than i expected, and the first corner is causing me more trouble than i expected. :mad:

First Corner is always on the edge...would be interesting to know how precise they will control it cause a bit wider line can give you easily 2-3 tenths. What is if someone gets out there in his Q Lap? How often are you able to go over the white line in the Race? Questions after Questions...that's always a problem on that Track.

Yep, cut T1 a bit on the inside and run wide on the outside gives you more than two tenth, that can be a few positions in Q.

Edit: Well that was a bit of a disaster. :/ Got stuck at the hospital over an hour longer than expected, and when I finally got home my PC and internet were playing up. Only just managed to join in warmup. Played it safe for race 1, actually gained a bit of pace through the race.

2nd race, I minimised my game during warmup, opened up again and rfactor shut down. Tried rejoining the session but it wouldn't join me as a driver, only next to 'server' etc. Missed race 2 now unfortunately, but is there any way to rejoin as driver for the future? I get "rfactor 2 has stopped working" quite often when I minimise the game.

right first of all sorry to one of the doramon cars i bumped the back of into the chicairpin. don't think it did too much harm but it wasn't on.

my other contacts break down into 2 groups:

1) little side by side rubs that from my perspective caused the other car to bounce off in a slightly inexplicable manner. i don't know if these had elements of netcode to them, but i was able to be in the same position with other cars and no one spun. :(

and 2) cars cutting across in front of me when they haven't cleared me and getting spun out. such as what happened with christian. sorry but i had nowhere to go in that situation.

it seems you have to be aggressive to make passes, but the last thing i want is for someone to think i'm driving dirty.

otherwise, race 1: couldn't get going as fast as i could've.

race 2: got going, but shredded the tires by the time i got closer to stegs.

overall a good result, but given the contacts not really the way i would've wanted it.

Well Sky, i don't wanna blame you but at the incident with me you forced me into the grass as i were clearly on your inside into Turn 2, so i had nowhere to go. And due to that fact, i had no where to steer as i were on max turn in, and you ignored that i were on your inside - you didn't left enough room for me to survive. Im not happy about that move. For me it looked a bit like you don't wanna give up as it was already over when i was inside of you on the Straight to Turn 2.

Nice fight at the end of Race2 Yuri, little bit unfortune that Teddy tapped me at the last lap where i wanted to make my move on you ;) haha

i don't know, on the replay it looks like you're inside at 2, i'm staying wide on the exit for the left at 3, but you understeer-plough into me and its just random luck that you get bounced across the front of me instead of me getting nudged off into the grass. :(

You braked a bit later as you were on the outside but in the corner you drove right on the white line, where actually my spot should have been in that corner.

/e and no, i didn't understeered into you, i tried to avoid you as you were turning into my line. Look it from my pov and you see what i mean.

Well no further comment from me onto this. It's over anyway.

i've looked at it from onboard your car, and it looks like you dived into a tight gap, drive half on the grass and try to track out across the front of me without clearing my car. sorry, thats what it looks like to me. (i feel like we need a shrug emoticon). thats the last i'll say on that too.

also i have no objections if anyone wants an incident of mine reviewed or something by the organisers (if they do that). as sometimes its hard to be completely objective about things you're involved in.

Don't worry that corner was covered, and so were the other ones untill the line :D
hardest to defend were T1 and 2, but I luckily got past those :D
