    STCC is a must have if you like this kind of shorter races, and you can purchase it thru steam on the fly. Was good fun indeed tonight.
    One side note: some people should stop commenting the entire night and start following grievance procedures instead.
    The constantly complaining of a few gets on many peoples nerves. Try to have more fun and less competition. Don't leave the server when you crash, take a pitstop and finish the race as a backmarker, just as much fun!

    Nice event. Drove the E46, I like that car, not very fast but I must get used to it because I'll drive the Lada a lot in the future:D
    1. race: Started 16th, finished 9th, had a couple of nice fights.
    2. race: Started 19th, there was nobody ahead me so I got a lightning start, but the guy in the green Seat ahead me didn't see me and pushed me to the wall so it was like a normal start, fortunately my car wasn't damaged badly, finished 9th again, same good fun!
    3. race: In Monza the car was a lot better, qualied 13th, got hit in T1 and then also spun in parabolica, still managed 10th place.
    4. race: 12th on quali I was really amazed how well it goes, the race was even better, chased Neil Tennant, and at last lap I got closer so fast I couldn't believe, at last turn I tried to overtake but I lost control over the kerbs, almost lost 6th place, but at the end I was able to keep it.

    Finishing in top 10 in all of the races with this car makes me happy:)

    Thanks for the event Bram!

    Finally managed to get a few races again here :dance2:. Love this format where you don’t have to sign up in advance as I almost never know if I will be able to make it before the actual race time. Was a couple of great races as always when racing here :high5:

    Hope to catch more of this kind of races here :gimme:

    Nice evening. I just can't get any speed with Alfas so i switched to Seat. Sorry about that shunt at the first race :disapointed:. Had a suspension damage couple of turns before and at T1 i brake at usual mark=a little bit too early, Alfa just skidded and there was nothing i could do about it.

    Still have to work on pace, i'm 2 secs behind on every track..

    That Monza Junior was a disappointment. Nobody seem to remember that at the chicane you just have to brake to crawl cause 11 out 12 laps there's an accident ahead. A little bit surprised that people tried to attack there. Just not enough room and somebody always overshoots=jam.. Drove like a gentleman but got punished at least half a dozen times cause of that... :(

    Very good format thou, wish that these would appear every other night. Would suit me fine!

    Well that was eventful to say the least.

    Race 1, Oschersleben B: Qualified P6/7 I think, never good at this track. Went outside and then inside at Turn1, helped me out big style as there were a few shenanigans up front. Then into T2, Torb nudges the back of me on the straight, causing me to put a wheel on the grass under braking, and around she goes! Had a great fight back through the field, cars and dust flying everywhere. Had a nice piece of side by side action with Peter and brought it home 8th.

    Race 2, Brands: Qualified 4th, but into T2, Dave Lemon tapped Simon and they both hit me, all three in the gravel. Had a hairy fight through the field, before knocking Hermy sideways out of Paddock, causing a big shunt. Really sorry Hermy. I saw he retired so I did too.

    Race 3, Monza Jr: I only made it to T1 this time, despite pole position. Peter got a rocket start and I was on the outside. I had gone wide to try and avoid any shenanigans but to no avail. Marcin moved slightly across Gary under braking, sliding into me and then Max also broke across the front of Gary and slammed into me, pretty much end of race. I pootled around, following Dave Flower. I tried typing a message to let him know I was a backmarker and gave him a tap while doing so, not much harm done thank God.

    Race 4, Oschersleben Reverse:
    Qualid P2, but as I picked up my controller for the grid I engaged first by accident and got a stop/go penalty immediately for a jump start. I then got the double whammy of a disconnect!


    Great exciting format Bram, short tracks are winners.

    Race 1, 2, 4 - had really good fights and good racing out there. Managed to avoid most of the start hassle, usually getting some places ahead. That is what I call lucky.

    Being generally slower than some behind, I was involved in some pretty intense fights and tried to defend hard, but not dangerously.

    I know once, I pushed lightly a car to the grass on the straight as my wheel started to be dodgy, and I could not react quick enough to avoid this. (probably I thought i am letting enough space there too). The car safely got behind me and overtook me at the next turn. I apologiezed for this also.

    Hit once a car unvoluntarily (a driving mistake - too wide in corner entry). Apologized, waited till the other car got back to race.

    Apart from that I think I was battling with Lewis Fergusson, and I have to see the replays first to say that I did anything wrong, but I didn't feel like that in the race.

    First of all I want to apologize Ryan Callan and Knut Omdal Tveito. That was really unlucky. Didn't want to do that guys.

    So i raced on 2 tracks

    1. Oschersleben B-Course which was a nightmare. Later i will do an official complainment about some random behaviours about me and my car..

    2. Monza Jr. Was about 1000 better. Qualified 3rd with a great setup was looking forward to. So Start as ever i'm trying to synchronise my braking to people with front which wasn't good idead because i outbraked himself and landed into Ryan's car who outbraked himself too i suppose. Then i drove out of my skin from 21th to 8th and finished race with one point.
