    Can you please use push to talk on TS as your gear changes are bleeding through and disturbing other racers.

    Nice first race until the front of my car developed a magnetic for walls. Really good track and nice to see a busy grid.
    Werner Gillespie did you find out what the problem was?
    Hope our newcomers Clive Morrison and Greame Champion enjoyed their time with us.
    Usual congrats to the podium, thanks to all for attending and let's fill the grid for Thursday with the group 5 monsters.

    No problem, you can use P2T or make sure your sensitivity is higher or even mute your mic.

    Congrats everyone!
    1st race was great! Good, clean battles, one accident with @Piotrek Blaszczak :D but nothing serious! Anyway, sorry mate!
    2nd race a nightmare for me! I don't want to talk about it never ever :cry:
    Many-many mistake :poop:, once I pushed out @Yetch , really sorry! :(
    Next time I don't make any race with 38°C fever :thumbsdown:
    Thanks for @Kenny Paton to organized this event!

    Thanks for the race and special thanks to @PicoBp for the setup. I was hesitant to switch to a completely different setup right before the first race, but I'm sure glad I did, it meant the difference between qualifying behind most of the field and at least being somewhat relevant and enjoying some battles. It probably was my most enjoyable race with these yet. The second one less so, because I messed up several times on my very first lap as always, but it was still kinda fun catching up.

    :thumbsup:

    Amazing races, great respect and a usual fun bunch on track! :thumbsup:

    @Gopher04, good clean fight in R1, going two wide for almost a sector. ;)

    @Vangelis Parginos, too bad for that wall tap in R2, could have been a close race if you stay in touch.

    And @Clive Morrison, welcome on board! Hope you had some fun as well! :) Good job with the blue flag, and I really mean that. An important skill that's often overlooked.

    Thanks all especially Kenny for keeping me company . I only have the golf at the moment and wondered if someone might send me some setup for practice on this track please. Well done https://www.racedepartment.com/members/27873/

    My teachers from history will tell you that I always needed pushing! ;) Just before they pushed me out of the front gates and locked them!
    I take no offence from getting punted, part of the sport in WTCR it appears and all the better for it. :thumbsup:
    Race 1 was fun in the beginning, great 2 then 3 way tussle for the lead but my setup was awful and as my tyres overheated I became a liability, hot fronts and cold rears, was only ever gonna end in disaster, fortunately I was put out of my misery from behind, decided instead of endangering the field I'd pit and sort car out for race 2. Needn't of bothered, overcooked fronts again as had no braking, overshot on several occasions, apologies to whoever it was I ran wide at the left before the carousel, it proved costly for many, as in my efforts to not T-bone you, I lost so much speed that the following pack found me in exactly the place you don't want someone having a picnic, apologies again Steve Le Gallez, if I'd breathed in any more I'd have turned inside out.
    Having real problems in the races with the WTCR, have a great setup and I run race fuel in qualifying and all feels great but the minute the lights go out it's as though I've got in the wrong car, just handles totally different, baffling me beyond belief.
    Great races as always chaps, see you Thursday for the G5's! :confused:
