That was quick. I had a bad feeling about this race. Really buggy track. I had a decent start. But at 3/4 of the lap my car was feeling weird, and i a little touch with the wall. And my car was only going 120 Kph. Ended up in the pits and that doesn't worked either. At the ended of the pits it was driving 120 only again and the brakes didn' worked either, so i had to back out. I have always problems at Spa. :angry:. First race i didn't finish at RD.

The idiots at my work decided to phone. Attempted 1 corner of shouting and driving and rather decided to park it. Will have to reconsider my racing now, as this is happening to often :(

my g25 just shut it self off on the straight after corner one on lap somthing. so the car was stuck on full throttle down the straight with no steering what so ever, crashed into the tire barriers and "Damage not repairable. Race is over."

I got a good start, slotted nicely behind a string of traffic at eau rouge, then for no apparent reason spun! I charged back put lost it at rivage, did some major damage (sorry to the leaders who weren't expecting to lap a car so early!) went to the pits, my steering seemed buggered even afterwards, sped in the pits so went for a stop go penalty.

Car now seemingly fixed, but steering is awful and pulling to one side, downshift gears a bit intermittent (an old Logitech PS2 wheel), went for another pitstop. Sat there in the pits unplugging my wheel, plugging it back in again, so joy. Quit to garage to look at my set up, and seemingly quite the race :( Gutted at my first effort!

Took a look at the replay-I got a bit of grass and that threw me around - well done to the guys who all missed me and sorry for screwing up on my first corner ever in sim racing!

You don't need to drive on the grass when being lapped, just move offline and whoever is behind will find their way past :)

Good race, won it with my team mate Olly in second, still love the extremes too much :p

Tonight was fantastic and more of these would be great. Started 14th out of 16 and stayed out of the way of any trouble. Took it nice and steady for the first 2 laps then started pushing and was safely in 4th by half way. It was a lonely race then but just loved it.

Shocked that there was only 16 racers after so much interest.

Thanks Bram and RD for a quality combo over a nice time limit.

Good race. Made a couple of mistakes so I was by myself in second for most of it. On my second pit stop I decided to put it in 6th to save some fuel... Bad idea because the pits went downhill and I was then going 40mph... stop 'n' go. Did that and exited about 8 seconds ahead of Thierry Marchand who closed me in. I didn't change my tires on the second stop and I think Thierry did so he caught me up quickly over the last 2 laps, down to 1 second over the finish line.

first time with the extrems for me and first time spa also. I like both :dance2:

quali:
Did my PB but was no good against you guys. Only about place 12th. But was ok for me.

race:
I tried to keep out of trouble and do some clean laps. I had a excellent start and gained many positions. Then I had some lonely laps but the guys behind me were catching. After some laps I had Bob Miley behind me. He was much faster then me and after I toke a ride on the gras he overtoke me. McGhee was right behind Bob and also overtoke me very fast. But I catched him at the last corner and we had a drag race until en rouge. Me first in en rouge. That was fun. :rotfl:
I had a full tank and pitted in lap 12. Wanted to do 2 stops but actually did 4 :struggle:.
Got a stop & go in the second stop and the first time I pitted for the penalty I hit the postpone button accidently. :loser:
So I had do pit again.
At the end I was 6. But I think I was last one out there.
Good race at all.

Thanks RD and all the drivers.

Loved this event. I was in P3 when I went into the pits. Then it stopped in the pit entrance and nothing happened! :(

I presume you had auto pit on? If so, turn it off when using addon tracks - there are quite a few glitches with it.

Well for me I only managed 7th in Qually which for a track I know and love was a bummer.. Set up's always let me down!! so any help qould be appriciated. In the race I was a low as 12th but got to 3rd before my first stop.. I was running heavy and able to challenge!

Thanks to all.
