    Good fun, saw a little lag that was a bit of an issue. There was some contact, and it was to be expected. Low HP cars + Tight circuit + large field = guaranteed contact.

    As far as I could see all contact, included a wait, but if you feel otherwise please report the incident.

    My race report will follow.

    Thanks all for coming, thanks Eric for organizing, and thanks RD for hosting.

    Was a fun race
    Congrets to the podium.

    Race1
    Had a normal start. When i looked behind me before braking for the first corner i saw Yves steering to the inside with an incredible speed. So i choose to brake early and wait what happend.
    Yves was flying by :) and braked on a few cars in the first corner. I picked the inside of the corner and took the 3th place behind Keith. When i followed him around and tried to pick a spot to attack it went wrong. I flew out of the corner towards the barrier. Stopped the car on time before hitting the tyres.
    Now it was just trying to get back on the track and overtake some cars.
    I finished 7th.

    2 Race:
    I start on the 2nd place. My sweat broke out on the start. If i just take the first position i thought. Then i could defend my first spot. But after be overtaking it went wrong. Some cars where very aggresive on the field this morning/night. And the suspension of my car was broke. After trying to brake later then Yves. I noticed that my suspension felt like there was something wrong to hit the corner. It just wasn't reactive as is should. My responce was to brake harder, and my wheels blocked. I hit yves, all my speed was gone, and the car behind me was Ben who hit me in the rear. Sorry Yves and Ben.
    After this i waited to everyone was passing me. So i could settle myself and managed to get calm. Now it was just a race like race 1 i had to try to overtake some cars.
    When i approached the slower cars. I noticed that they wouldn't let me pass them without hitting me. After taking there places it was racing all on my own.

    These mini's aren't my favor. I think i will stick to the DTM and WTCC/STCC cars. I never had issues with these races. Except from the DTM connection loss. (internet provider was upgrading my connection without noticing me)

    I saw some discussion about the 200 ms ping. This couldn't cause any lag they sayed.
    If i look at drivers with 200 ping. You see a little lag.

    I will just post my PC and connection to show you I can't do anything about this!

    Motherboard: M4A78t-e (am3)
