Unfortunately I had to miss yesterday's qualifying session. Sad

But I will be at the track later on and start at the end of the field. :conduit:

Was your CPU running at its nominal speed? rFactor doesn't like turbo (or powersaving) mode online.

I might not be able to make Saturday qualifying (that's the reason I ran last night).

It was ok last night, the short time I was online so I guess it's sorted now. What I did before Thursday was to uninstall my old AVG antivirus and replaced it with another one so that could have had something to do with it.

We'll see tonight!

By the way, I think I have had some OC in BIOS a long time now, I think 5%. I've got a ASUS K8N mothorboard, that insists on clocking my 2 identical Kingston 400 MHz RAM's at 333 MHz, for some reason. Asus blames Kingston for that (?) Bastards...

Damn I hate that first chicane. I also hate contact between other drivers, no matter how small it is. The bastard Renault falls apart if you sneeze on it, so try to make sure you can make a move without any kind of incident, before you try it.

Tu sais qu'il est possible de programmer une touche pour le reset du RDF?

Pour ma part: plus d'infos chronomètrage après quelques tours, puis déconnection. Sad

Départ pas trop mauvais. J'evite les quelques voitures en rade dans le premier tour, je me fait passer par ceux qui seront plus rapide que moi en course. Bref, tout va bien sauf que ma connection me lache directement après :bangry: ça m'arrive rarement mais là , en plus, j'ai eu une semaine de merde au boulot donc la pillule est vraiment difficile à avaler Evil or Very Mad
Je vais me faire quelques tours en renault en argentine histoire de me calmer et de préparer la prochaine saison Neutral

Thx Carl for the battle :top: il's the only positive point of that race ...

Cette piste, sans cette p..... de b..... de m..... de chicane serait l'une des plus belles au monde. Mais inutile de m'en prendre à la chicane, de toute façon j'étais inconstant comme jamais :smil20: une vraie pince :smil20:

Bravo au vainqueur et aux finisseurs, une petite dizaine quand j'ai abandonné à la mi-course.


Merci à HSO et spécialement à Gui qui s'occupe de ce championnat. C'est un championnat hors norme pour l'organisation et l'ambiance qui y règne. :top:

A bientôt pour un nouveau championnat en 2011

A satisfying 3rd to end the season :third:

The first 15 laps were pretty intense, i was following the 3 leaders when they spun one by one and i took the lead Smile
Then Greg caught me pretty rapidly, held him back for 5 laps but then he went through, Pierre followed through after going wide at the chicane
I ran alone for the rest of the race and once again in the closing stages i managed to do the same laptimes as the leaders, but indeed too late

Grats Greg for your first win in F179 and Pierre for 2nd Smile

It was a great season on all aspects , thanks to HSO, to the admins and see you next year!! :top:

I'm sorry mate, I really thought I had a big margin under braking from what I had seen in the previous lap and turns... And for once I had managed to catch a draft so I went for it. As usual, I was running insanely lotta wings and was desperately slow in the straights. This could have been a nice fight tho, sorry again.

I was not really in a racing mood and although this is one of my favourite tracks the chicane makes it a really boring race - impossible to get a consistent pace as those ill-placed shitty pieces of kerbs are such a lottery each lap. Did a prudent race, let faster guys past by but most of them crashed out ^^ . Nice laps with Tiago, Carl and Vincent tho.

Grats to Greg for his first win :champ: !

Thanks to all for the always full grid ths year ! See yall in Buenos Aires 2011 !

belle bagarre pour la dernière,je pars 3 derrière greg et vincent et me retrouve très vite en tête après une faute de vincent et grégoire à la chicane,en freinant plus que d'habitude pour éviter ben qui essayait de se garer pour nous laisser passer grégoire me percute et m'envoie dans le grillage,je repars avec 7 s de retard sur carlo qui est passé et 5 sur greg ,leur bagarre me permet de revenir au bout de quelques tours mais greg est passé et on fait toute la course avec 3 à 1.5 s d'écart ,sauf faute de sa part je ne pouvais le passer,nos temps étant très proches . bravo greg et sans rancune pour m'avoir (involontairement)sorti. :frank:
merci à hso et guillaume en particulier pour ce super championnat,aux pilotes tous très corrects,et à tyrrell pour ses performances qui m'ont favorisé pour la conquête du titre :hello:

nice fight for the last one, I started 3 behind greg and Vincent and very quickly took the lead after a mistake of Vincent and Gregoire at the chicane, while slowing down to avoid Ben very slow inside to let to us pass Gregoire stroke me and pushed me out , I came back on track with 7 S behind carlo who had taken the lead and 5 s behind greg, their fight gave me the possibility to reduce the gap but greg had taken the lead and i followed him with a small gap , without a mistake I could not pass him, our times being very close. cheers greg i don t bear grudges
thanks to hso and Guillaume specially for this awesome championship, with very correct pilots , and tyrrell for its performances which helped me for the conquest of the title: :hello:

1ere, Merci a tous pour vos félicitations cheers cheers thanks guys for your congrats cheers cheers

après mes cinq 2 eme place a la suite je finissais pas croire que je ne finirais jamais par l avoir cette victoire Wink ( Franck et Dadou j avais dit que je vous ferez mentir ce soir j ai reussi lol! ) et pourtant c etait assez mal parti , les 13 premiers tours ont eté les plus dur que je n ai jamais vécu en F1 79 , j ai cru que le sort s acharnait sur moi ....
je vais le hotshot , au 2eme tour a la chicane je perds l arriere au freinage , je prends le vibreur de gauche de plein fouet je décolle a 1 metre au dessus de la piste mais je reussi a me rattrapper sans heurter le mur affraid affraid de la Vincent me passe , 2 tours apres vincent se rate a la chicane , pour l eviter je fais un ecart et moi aussi sort un peu de la piste mais une fois de plus je m en sors sans aucun degats ( oooufff ) la c est pierre qui passe en tete . 3 tours apres pierre se méfiant de Ben un peu en perdition sur le cote freine 100 m avant le point de freinage habituel , je ne m y attendais pas du tout et je viens le percuté , il part dans l herbe et moi je spin affraid affraid . La c est Carlo qui prend la tete avec 3 secondes d avance , je reviens sur lui , une tres grosse bagarre s en suis de 4 tours entre lui et moi , et je finis par le passé par l interieur de la grande courbe a droite , a partir de la en tete jusqu au bout avec 2 petites erreurs ( 1 demi spin dans la derniere partie du circuit et une au 1er virage )

enfin ma 1ere victoire en f1 79 apres une demie saison parmi vous :first: :first: :first: :first: :first: :first: :champ: :champ: :champ: :champ: :champ: :champ:


merci aux organisateurs de cette league , ou personnellement je passe d excellents moments :top: :top:


a la saison prochaine , bonnes fetes de fin d année a tous :champ: :champ:



google translation Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

First, Thank you all for your congratulations cheers cheers guys thanks for your congrats cheers cheers

After my five 2nd place as a result I ended up not believing that I should never have this victory by Wink (Franck and Dado j told you I'll lie tonight I succeeded lol) and yet was poorly c party, the first 13 laps were the hardest that I have never lived in F1 79, I have believed that the fate s hard on me ....
I'll hotshot, the 2nd round at the chicane I lose the rear brake, I take the vibrator head-I left off a 1 meter above the runway, but I managed to catch up without hitting the wall affraid affraid of Vincent's happening to me, 2 turns after Vincent has misses the chicane to avoid the gap and I do a lot myself a bit of the track but once again I m going out without any damage (oooufff) c is the stone passing in mind. 3 laps after stone was a bit suspicious of Ben in distress on the brake side 100 m before the usual braking point, I do not expect it my all and I'm the hit, he went into the grass and I spin affraid affraid. The c is Carlo takes the lead with 3 seconds to advance, I come back to him, a very big fight s am 4 turns between him and me, and I finished in the past by the interior of the large curve to the right, starting from the head up in the end with 2 small errors (a half spin in the latter part of the circuit and the first bend)

finally my first F1 victory 79 after a half season with you: first:: first:: first:: first:: first:: first:: Field:: Field:: Field:: Field:: Field:: Field:


thank you to the organizers of this league, and personally I go to great moments: top:: top:


a next season, Merry Christmas to all year: Field:: Field:

It was a really nice race and a great end to 2010 ...

Had some nice fights with Jp ,Vincent who was unstoppable until his mistake
and Frank who i battled with most of the race ive never raced here before but
i love the track , but the chicane is a joke i practically stopped most times i drove through
it as i could see many people spinning here ... Although Consistancy seemed to pay off in the end ....

I Felt sorry for JP as i had a very small moment early in the race and i think he had to
swerve to miss me , and i had several scary moments where i had to swerve to miss
Tiago who was stationary on the Start Finish Line and Franck and Vincent who had also spun in the chicane .......

Really Nice feeling to have got the Ligier back in the points and i really had to work for the points as Frank was never very far away FORZA Ligier team ...Guy would have been pleased with the team performance tonight .... :clap:

Congrats to Greg a great and deserved win ....:first:
And to Pierre :second: and Carlo :third:...

Great end to a great championship THX to HSO and the admin for your awesome organization
