Well, I think this was the first 22 lap battle for me. Never had to  try so hard before.

Thanks to Yardstick, I had a really great time fighting for the last place non-stop.

 

We had some contacts and one time i pushed him (sry), but I let him go, because he was faster anyways.

 

I just realized I need more of this battle and breaking experience, also have to work on my concentration.

But it was a lot lot better than last time.

Oh and great work for ATS_Agus1601 and ATS_ingange, and we all missed ATS_majomhus with his hidden talent.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Last hairpin before finish, I think it was my mistake. Everybody stopped very early and I was too late with braking, then I wanted get through a small opening, but couldn't.

But I will check the replay, don't remember.

 

Oh and we really, really need a wide mirror in cockpit view, the cars mirrors are totally useless for me.

Also tried to drive with hood cam, but its so weird that I can't take it.

Big congrats Doodle for a perfect weekend , the pole and a lights to flag win in 900-1100 A !!! congrats also to Mastrorocco  for 2nd position in 500-900 A , yard was 13th ... in the 900-1100 B a strong race by sierra to 6th !! finally a race without being nudged by anyone I think and his consistency moved him up the grid ..... in the 900-100 A 4 SDEv drivers took part which was great !!  Alex and Andy had a fun race I think with lots of action to finish 10 and 11th .
  I started 12th in the 900-1100 A , and I didn't have much hope as I didn't like this car track combo , but I was focussed on not making any errors as I had done in previous races and it turned out to be a good race for me ... as drivers in front made errors ( some heart in mouth moments ) I was able to capitalise and climb my way upto 5th and im more than pleased with it !! ...

Thinking about your questions from yesterday, so Test Drive Tuesdays and precisely discounts for cars used in the upcoming Rounds, we've came up with a new way to do it. Probably something we should have done before, but instead we've tried other options.

 

Test Drive Tuesday with the McLaren MP4-28 will begin in about 2 hours from now and last untill Wednesday, 4PM UK time, that is 17:00CET, so as usual. Once that ends, Honda NSX GT500, so car that will be used in Round 2 of this Championship will be put under a 50% discount and remain like that for 24 hours. No test drive, just the discount, for all those who are interested to take part in the Championship and don't own the car just yet. That will also be the case for every other car.

Once again I missed the top 28 by a hair. Once again I took a reserve spot. Once again I started from the back and avoided all incidents. Once again I had to hold off someone before he disappeared in my rearview mirror. And once again I scored a top 10 finish. Nothing to be proud of, really, but it's funny to see how an anonymous race can turn into a decent result.

 

Message to Hesh838: the rough driving wasn't quite necessary. You nudged me in the last chicane on lap 4 and then you tangled with someone else a little bit later. You were definitely faster but a little more respect and patience would have been greatly appreciated.

AAAARGH! I'll be 300 miles away from home! I guess I gotta connect from my laptop when I'm at the airport or something...

I didn't think my first post on this forum would be me defending myself  :rolleyes:  lol

 

Reno i would just like to point out i am not a rough racer at all, those 2 incidents i had with you and dahrec were completely unintentional, and they both happened on the same corner, and it is only due to the fact that in the week build up to the race, i have only lapped this track on my own and the first instance of me racing with any other cars on this track was when the lights went out at the start of those 32 laps on sunday... so of course those first few laps took a lot of getting used to trying to maintain the race line with other cars attacking me and defending there own positions, and this is when the contact happened on the first few laps!

 

but unfortunately when i made contact with you, and dahrec in the same corner but on different laps, i was being patient, but i was just not ready for how late and gently you were both getting on the throttle to get out of that corner, i wasn't expecting there to be contact but unfortunately there was, luckily it was incredibly gentle and didn't really effect either me, you or dahrec, but the rest of my race was just as clean and fair as normal, just an unfortunate couple of incidents really!

I totally agree that it didn't affect the rest of our race. I think I sustained a light damage to the left rear panel but nothing serious. I was just pissed by the way it happened. Indeed, I noticed these two incidents took place at the beginning of the race and your next move was perfectly clean.

 

Still, just like you, I did not practice group racing before the event. I didn't even calculate the fuel mileage. In this case, you just have to be extra patient in the opening laps and observe the line of the guys in front of you before deciding where to attack. You dived inside and, as you admitted, you did not know how I was driving around this specific corner. I didn't change my line because you were too far behind at the braking point so I didn't even try to surprise you with a counter-line. You can't just 'expect' me to do something and go for it in the corner.

 

Once again, you were faster and you would have eventually passed anyway so the end result is basically the same. I've been called out a few times for my defensive driving and race incidents that were just unfortunate. Some of my actions have been judged according to what could have happened and not to what did happen. So now I'm far less lenient concerning contacts. But there's no grudge to be held here. Mistakes are made, that happens. Let's move on.

it's always like that Walker, only cash prices are reduced, not the credit price.

 

I just was about to post this video, when I saw a new reply, maybe it can cheer you up :)

It's a tribute to last 6XJ4 night race. It didn't turn out perfect because the recording stuttered and I realized it too late to record it from new. I hope you'll like it anyway. The driving is also far from good, but it was just a fun video editing project for me. 2 or 3 decent drifts are in it, so I'm content :D, I'm not a drifting pro.

You're right, but I can't help you :( (unless... how many Daytona $500 events would it take to earn 7500 credits? :D)

 

Ask Coss about this issue, in PM, mail or in the chat if he's there - I bet he'll find a solution

 

(edit: I'm using way too many Smilies :D - dang :) :D :| - :))
