    First, many thanks to Yves & RD :)


    Wd top 3 in both events! :)


    Race 1, started 3rd. First corner Arkaddiy Plesovkiy taps me in the rear, OK I can handle that, but not content with this he decides to do it all over and follow it through and push me all the way round! “yeah thanks” also never slow or stopped!.. This puts to to the back of the grid p22. So I thought “OK” this should be fun! So I push on, get up to p10 for Willam Yunck to take me out in the same spot! Rage!!!! but he did say sorry! “thanks man” Now P21 “AGAIN”. @ this point I'm Pi**ed off!..I then get to the back of Dan Watson whose lag was ridiculous I'm sure others will comment (sorry dude but it was bad) I get stuck behind Dan fear of trying to make a move as he was bounce all over my screen. But get past & push on made my way back up to P8 to then fall off a little Oh great I'm now stuck behind Dan Watson Ie. Lag... finally made my way back to P10 where I had a very nice fair battle with Keith Peppiatt) credits m8 you race well...


    As you can see and please watch my replay Yves. This race was a joke!


    Race 2. P10 start thanks to the above!.. got up to p7 but then lost it a little strayed over Mark guy who had nowhere to go and punted me off. That was my mistake mate..


    Very disappointed :(

    He also pushed me out the way in race 2, i nearly span but floored the accelerator to stop the spin, and got going again.

    Anyway...5th and a 4th. Only my 2nd and 3rd ever points finish. But was due to alot of incidents in race 1. Went through a cloud of smoke on lap 1 race 1 to emerge in 4th i think. Dropped to 7th but upto 5th by the end due a couple of drop outs. Had some good racing with Jack Bauer and Mark Guy.

    Race 2 went pretty good. Lost a place on the start but remained 4th after a good battle with Ivo and Dennis. Got a bit muddled with Dennis with some contact but we both waited for each other and Ivo got away to finish 3rd. After that, lonely race to 4th place.

    Thanks Yves, and thankfully no 'cutting' moaning after you threatened to turn the server off. Shouldnt of come to that though, but still...

    :)

    Not a very good 2 races for me tbh, was involved of a few collisions, a bad handling car and Mr. Branson demolishing my net connection.

    Race 1: - Qualified 9th, had a good start, got up to 5th following Yves and someone else, but tagged Yves coming out of the Acqua Minerale corner (Sorry Yves) so had to stop 'til Yves got going again, was 23rd after that! Eventually made my way up the field, benefiting from a few people going off, until I caught Bjorn and battled with him for 8th. Would've got him on the last lap if it weren't for a mistake at Rivazza, so finished 9th.

    Race 2: - With Mr. Branson continuing to demolish my net speed, this was quite a laggy affair. Had an OK start, stayed in 9th until I got hit up the back at Rivazza by a Honda, dropped down to 13th. By this time my car was handling badly and the lag wasn't helping either, so stayed 13th for a few laps until a big crash in front of me got me past about 5 cars, and another collision happened so I passed another 3. Up to 5th which was where I finished.

    Thanks to Yves for organising this event.

    @Matt: - Sorry about that, I was thinking of quitting the race but the lag wasn't as bad as it has been in RD events in the past so I continued. Sorry if I spoiled your race.

    Race 1:

    Started 24th i think because i didn't do a Quali. Race went well, got a little tap from behind in lap 3 and took Melo i think with me. Sorry was not my fault. After that some nice battles with Nuno, Bjorn and Dennis Phelan. And i ended up 6th.

    Race 2:

    Got a place at the start and was behind number 1 Bjorn but i tapped him a little bit so we both lost some places. (it's was a long time ago that i tapped someone of the track) After that i was running 5th i think. Had a great battle with Dennis again and Nick. But pulled away after that and i ended up 3th. Fun race everyone. and Thanks Yves.

    I was a bit rusty tonight having not realy raced since the end of the GTC if I remember right. And I have been having lag issues of late so if anyone saw me lagging silly please let me know.

    Race 1: Started 19th and moved up nicely as far as 11th as people made mistakes. Plodded along quite nicely getting back into the groove. Sadly I fell foul of silly little mistakes like braking when the weight shift of teh car was all wrong and getting out of shape, and also found myself mirror watching missing the odd braking point and slowly dropped back but ended up 14th.

    Race 2: Started 14th due to my finish there and made a nice start flying past macgregor. Moved up to the right of turn one and slipped up teh side of some cars and collected Yves as he also moved right, I got out of shape from this and spun on the curbs and kinda got in everyone elses way. I delayed a little restarting looking for Yves but had a couple of cars pushingt at my bumper so decided to get on with it and found my steering was a wee bit off. Plodded along making a few more errors and ended up following Holder and made a mistake under braking and pushed him off, after that I got careless and cut a couple too many times and got some stop gos so decided rather than end up being lapped to end my miserable race.

    First off...thanks to Yves and RD for putting on another good race!

    Quali 4th....thrilled with that!

    R1... worst start EVER! went from 4th to 11th, but battled back to finish 4th after some great racing with Nick Deely and others. Nick we seem to be equally paced, but your lag was kind of sketchy at times. But overall good racing.

    R2...better start, untill corner 2 when Mr. Prlesovsky decided to cut the track into my rear qtr panel, spinning me into the wall. Battled back untill some lag from Mr Deely put me and Mr Yunck into the wall a bit, and jose ribero decided he could plow through 3 of us......sigh Ended up finishing 11th after a long back-and-forth w/ Mr Guy.

    *ADDED* after waching race 2 again...Mr Plresovsky taakes out myself, then Mr Deely, then Mr Haas...all in the 1st Lap. I understand you may be faster than I am, but thats no excuse to race like that!

    Oh.. Sorry Watson, I was the Honda...but I couldn't tell where you were. Your Laaaaaaaaaaaaaging lots.

    Thanks again...

    Jack :)

    RD, Yves, thanks for those races.
    Just, please don't tell my cardiologist about them!
    I think my heart was working faster than my arms or legs.

    R1 Got thought the first chicane and slowly moved up to P7, P6[?] until everyone got straightened out. I watched the train of blue dots get closer and closer each lap. I held on but Ivo was just too fast in his recovery mode and as I goofed, he took my place, well done there! Finished P7.

    R2 OMG, front row! No, no, no! I did manage to hold onto P2 until almost L3. The fast guys are too good and I make too many mistakes. They just kept coming, a couple I did get to race before I messed up, Nick was good, Michal was very patient and put max pressure on, waiting a long time before I "gave him room", lol! I didn't get to see who was in those two Honda's, I hope there are no bad words for me.

    See you all after my camping trip.

    Really curious event...

    Race 1
    I started from 7th position, and did quite a good start but a little bit defensive, so I was after a first turns on 9th position...but then in sector 4 Yves had a collision with someone and stoped in racing line, and there was no way, how I could avoid the collision...sorry Yves. That meant damaged suspension, what significantly affected handling and stability. Then we all had to wait for other cars, so we could safely come back to track. After that, I overtook some cars, but then, Freddie Besems hit me, when I overtook him, but it was normal racing accident and thanks for waiting :good:

    Race 2
    Even worse then first race. In first lap, Jose Ribeiro hit me when he cut the track on the grass! So I lost couple of position and again damaged suspension, so again whole race with damaged car... Obviously, he didn't wait... Interesting thing is, that he is not in the entry list :question: and when I watched a replay, I found that, it was not only colision when Jose hit someone... After a few laps, Freddie Besems suddenly slow down on the straight and I was right behind him, so I couldn't avoid him...really sorry.
    After that I overtook couple of cars and I really enjoyed the battle with Dennis :)

    Thank you Yves and RD :good:

    Must first say I really like this track and enjoy racing here. It's the kind of track that does not forgive mistake, I love it.

    Q: P10 with a new PB for very pleased with that.

    Race 1: Had not to bad start and made up one position. Managed to miss the incident on L1 and found myself in P5. Had a nice little fight with Nick. After a couple of laps a few drivers fell out and I was in P3. My race was really lonely from then, accept the huge preasure I got from Jack who closed up slowly and by the end of the race was on my bumper. :)

    Race 2: Not such a good start this time, got tagged on the exit of Tumberello and then going into the second chicane I think Matt got it a little wrong came across me, I had no where to go and we made contact. Sorry for Keith who made contact with me as he was right behind me and had no where to go. :( I waited for you guys, but you both retired. I decided to carry on racing with my damage. I again found Jack and we had nice little fight to the end.

    Thanks RD and Yves, see you guys next week.

    not feeling 100% when i turned up at server but felt only fair to honor my commitment to the race and what a grid.

    must admit i was a bit disappointed with the comments going around at first about cutting etc... felt like didn't need that hassle and nearly disconnected. still name was down, here to race and thats what i done.

    qual happy with performance again, couldn't do as many laps as i'd wanted due to drugs still needing to take effect. 1.9 off front by .5 off my benchmark of Yves popped me 12th on the grid.

    race 1. eventful. some good scraps around the place but i did see an awful lot of contact. just a general comment please don't let the races descend to destruction derby type events. race hard but race fair.

    mr beermonster had a wee issue under breaking towards the end of the first lap which put him out of shape and then on the grass, unfortunate contact with myself followed but we got going again. thanks for waiting.

    as i said not feeling 100% and that led to some issues. great scrap towards the end of the lap where both matt and I tried to occupy the same piece of tarmac. a few "no... after you!" type events followed but crossed the line .3 behind him. really enjoyed that but felt drained.

    thanks for the kind comments matt too. much appreciated.

    race 2. drained... tired and mid pack again and when two hondas collected each other at the 2nd chicane even though on the brakes i had no where to go and hit one of them. direction went straight on into a wall. with damage i took the call to go to the pits as a 2min lap for 12 laps with damage was not what my body needed.

    overall with my fitness level as it was it was a good race. my point still stands on the over aggressive driving though, race hard but race fair everyone will enjoy it then no matter where they finish.

    thanks yves for organising, i love this track and one day will master it!. thanks rd for hosting. hopefully back to full health for next week!.
