    Nothing like last-minute technical difficulties to really set the mood. :D
    First I lost the mics, then I lost sound. Then I got the sound back, but the wheel wasn't working.
    Dear Microsoft.....Will you kindly stop screwing with my computer?
    *sigh*
    I gotta say.....Not being able to join in on TS is like being alone in your apartment while there's a really great party going on next door. :p

    Anyway, all that aside, it was a very fun evening.
    Surprised myself (and probably everyone else as well) by actually having decent pace in a FWD.
    Obviously that didn't stop me from screwing myself over in both races. :roflmao:

    Whoever hit me in the first race in the first few corners, don't worry about it.
    The guy in front of me lost the rear, and I had to stomp on the brakes to avoid him. Didn't really leave you much of a choice. :)

    @Martin Fiala Sorry about that overtake in the corkscrew. That was a little reckless. :(

    First race was fun, though I felt kinda bad overtaking @kamackeris at the end there, making that mistake at the end of the penultimate lap even more costly for you after all that effort, but at the same time, I didn't want to just hand the position to you either...

    Second race not as much, it was a bit wild at the start with multiple three wide situations all within like the first two or three corners. I wish races started on like second or third lap, I just don't handle the first lap well at all, most of the time I lose several spots and then spend the rest of the race trying to make up for it, usually unsuccessfully. And then there was also what seemed like an incident with @Mauricio256 - we were side by side on the main straight, I was looking to the right to see where he is, not noticing I'm veering off the track, then swerved slightly to the right to correct my direction...and the next thing I see is we are no longer side by side and I see him crashing in my mirrors. I wasn't sure if it was my fault, so I eventually decided to slow down and wait, because I just couldn't think of a scenario where I wouldn't be at least somewhat responsible. I'm still not sure what happened there, looking at the replay seems like it might not have been my fault after all as the slide kinda starts a bit before my swerve I think, but if I was responsible somehow, then I'm sorry, the swerve really wasn't intentional at all.

    I thought it was a bit cheeky, but wouldn't worry about it too much. ;)
