Although I'm happy for the points, I do find it odd that I only had time to enter one race yet ended up in the top 20 at the final tally. Were the results from the last 15 just really inconsistent?

 

Yes  :)

I hope they will give us old SRO prizes to buy cars!! :)  :D  :D

Definitely, we need more people to participate and paying them out would encourage them to buy the cars for this event.

Regarding the controversial start in Race 3 SQ 900-1100 A, I've analysed and here's the story line:

 

1. Launger in P2 has an issue with Launch Control and makes a slow start

2. JMOO1 in P4 (behind Launger) tries to go around Launger on the right side, by taking the middle line and slightly nudges the right rear corner of Launger's car

3. Stroggefier in P6 (behind JMOO1) notices that both cars in front (Launger and JMOO1) got slower, notices gap on the left of Launger and attempts to take it

4. JMOO1 after that nudge is spinning to the left side, catching Stroggefier on the way

5. JMOO1 slowed down by this hit, gets a nudge on the right rear corner from bakosgabor57

6. Stroggefier is now spinning in the middle of the track

7. azbest makes a quick decision to go around Stroggefier on the left, but once he does that, Stroggefier's spin has reversed and he's moving backwards in that direction, catching azbest

8. sikham followed azbest and got into both azbest and Stroggefier

9. PMMS notices all that and takes the right side of the track, but Stroggefier bounced from the hit straight in that direction and caught PMMS on the way

10. PMMS comes back from the grass and catches an oversteer on the way back, slides across the track and catches sikham on the way

 

The main reason why the above has happend is the issue with Launch Control that many of drivers have got into. I keep mentioning it as an issue, but it could as well be wrong usage of it, of course. Either way, it's worth to highlight it, because a combination of this plus such a rocket ship as Mazda 787 can result in a story like above.

 

There's no other classification for all of these situations above as racing incidents. 

 

Hopefully we can avoid such in the future  :)

What goes on? I never mapped LC other than default (space) and it never failed me. Full throttle in neutral, hit and release space bar, remember to change up(depending on the car) Job done.

Don't see what the problem is. Surely this prob would have surfaced during the many practice starts we do for these events?

Or was it a glitch?

Read a few pages back, it was already discussed

LC only works properly on some buttons

Huge congratulations to all of the drivers who got into the prized positions, but also those who didnt, yet also gave their best in the Championship. Podium finishers - you guys nailed it! Consistency across a longer period of time is definitely your domain. 

 

Each of the podium finishers who has won the pair of tickets, will receive a mail from me (sent to the address provided on your profile in Simraceway). You will be able to confirm of deny that you are able to attend the BTCC round at Donington Park this year. If not, then next driver in line will get a chance to grab them.

 

Once we finalize the above, these awards will be published in social media.

 

Thanks for all of those great races at Donington everyone and see you in the New Year's Championship  :)
