well from bad to better to worse... lol

got punched out twice in the first laps put me at the back with a slightly bend car
quite gutted i start to see this race as a big test but very soon some hickups appear on my screen at corners you realy dont want them, i noticed Carl his car was stuck in the bushes at the first right bend, ( hickups ) also at the last hairpin, i dont know who had such same problems but it could be my Pc , connection, synchronise problems , btw i just installled a Java update before.

anyway i could catch up to P10 when i got eliminated by a US kamikaze :grrr:  , quite pissed but np to shout here cause I'm very happy to run in this leage and many thanks to HSO!
(btw very odd to see somebody let cook his engine on the grid ???)

if anybody encouter some bugs in the track pls report so i can fix it
think i will make the bushes driveable

regards,

François (FD)

Ahhh I already wondered why my Q time was not there when I came back after dinner Jason!  Razz 

Anyway good race for me, especially for a 2 hours race! Of course some minor incidents but no big drama's. Sorry for the guy who I lapped, cannot remember your name,  but I hit you quite hard in the fast conrer I believe. I have never pushed so hard in my simracing life to get 1 world championship point but it feels like a victory for my lotus 25  drunken 

Thx HSO  :top: 

Race start!

I lost connection with 44 laps into the race.  :doh: 

Not an eventful race for me but was nice trying to keep the pace.

Looks like these engines can withstand a bit more revs on acceleration than I thought for the whole race. Next time I won't be so kind with it and see what happens.

See you next time.

Really sorry Mike  pale  I missed my breaking point.

I missed it twice, the other victim is Peter. No damage, i guess. Sorry Peter


Départ calamiteux, je n'entendais pas mon moteur. Ensuite j'ai été pris dans le carambolage de la chicane et je me suis retrouvé 17eme avant la fin du 1er tour.
Ma course n'a été donc qu'une lente remontée jusqu'à la 5eme place avec une belle bagarre avec Joel et Peter.

Il manque pas grand chose au setup pour etre performant, j'espère que j'aurai le temps d'ici la prochaine...

Well, it was a nerve race for me, despite the win.

Went for a conservative start, trying not to hurt my engine at all in the first part of the race. I was keeping a steady 0.4-0.5 sec. per lap faster than Mark, so it was looking good; the car was perfect with the setup I made.

First row of backmarkers, all went smoothly until I got to Phillipe; he spun at the first hairpin leaving the car in the middle of the track, which was not a problem, I slowed a bit and went for the right part of the track, suddenly something on Phillipe froze ( :hihi: ) and he just starts moving the car, hitting my left side, damaging my left suspension  pale . From then until the the end of the race, the car was a lot more loose into the right corners (which is a problem in the 1st two ones) and I wasn't that confident anymore.

Just kept going with care and all was good, Richard was my company in, I would say, at least half of the race  :top: , until the final 10 laps or so, which I can't really tell if it were the brakes or the tyres, but suddenly I started losing some stopping power, So I decided to let Richard go since he was having a "bagarre"  ( :D ) with Joel for 7th, so he might have needed that extra lap

Other than that...................... :first: :banane:

No worries, the complete lack of markings means people are going to overshoot sooner or later. I hate the mirrors in these cars; if I had seen you coming I would have dodged. Can't see squat in these things.

The lack of 'markings' for sure helped me to get 6th in this one...quite some cars ended behind me because they overshoot the corners more then I do while their normal race pace was quicker then mine  Razz 

@Mike that's odd mate, I have tested alls cars and mirrors are not a prob for me..you know how to adjust them in game right?

Was my pleasure to give you company Tiago, We should do it again sometime  :hihi: Wink 

Had a dreadful first 30 laps, Spinning everywhere, but then everything clicked and I was able to get into a quick rhythm and was able to attempt to close on the guys in front (40-50secs at that point) managed to catch Joel at the end and able to pass him coming out of the last corner of the last lap, (Sorry Joel  :aie: )

Shame couldn't have been more consistent throughout, but oh well  :smil20: 

Well done on the Victory Tiago  :clap:  and well done to all finishers as it was a tough race  :top: 

See you all at Brands  :conduit:

No - how do I decompress the cars in the mirrors? I think it is an issue with the mod according to those who made it.

Bien joué richard, tu meritais ces 2 centiemes à l'arrivée au vue de ta remonté.
Pour ma part beaucoup de petites erreurs dans cette course qui m'empechaient de garder un rythme normal.
à bientôt pour la prochaine Wink

Nightmare race for me yesterday  :aie: I took a good start but I missed my braking point entering the Esses and went through the grass... --> stop & go penalty  :doh: Sad . Restarting last I started climbing back up the pack, but I spun once early on and then a second time around lap 15 and hit the wall. My car was damaged and behaved like a cow on the two big braking points and in the two left handers  :smil20: so the rest of the race was really frustrating : 5 fastish laps and a spin for most of the evening... Still nice laps with Glenn for a while towards the end  :yaa: and 1 point in the Von Trips trophy so it was not all that bad  :biggrin: 

Grats Tiago, Austin and all finishers  :top:

If a car appears in your mirror very big and next to you then I know not to turn in like normal...all I need  :hihi:

Pascal, thanks for taking me out twice in the first hairpin. Especially the second time, on lap 30, was ridiculous. As you were willing to completely take advantage of the incident (instead of giving me the place back which would've been a gentlemanly thing to do) I won't hesitate to return the favor. Also, you were very good at cutting corners on the next three laps but I'll leave it to the admins.

Frank, get your shit together, Austin's gonna walk away with the Von Trips Trophy :hum:

Mauvais début, problèmes d'ordi et arrivée en retard, pas mal de petits freezes, dur dur hier soir.

Mais en course, je m'amusais bien, le circuit m'a même semblé fun (j'l'aimais vraiment pas sur GPL)... départ gentil, et puis des bagarres plus ou moins longues avec Marc, Jason, Mike..., j'étais plus ou moins en rythme et propre, puis vers le 20ième tour (?), je vais légèrement mordre le sable dans Rifle, rien de grave si je n'avais pas croisé un buisson en métal en voulant revenir en piste... the end... pale  pale 

J'avais été super prudent jusque là, un peu trop même (sauf sur le dépassement avec Marc, désolé pour la "petite caresse" Marc, je voyais rien malgré mes 5 rétros...)
J'aime beaucoup le pilotage de ces voitures, mais comme d'autres pilotes, j'ai pas mal de peine à savoir correctement où je me situe par rapport aux autres en "close fight".


Rendez-vous à Brands Hatch, merci HSO !  :top:

sorry Jukka

it was my first real race with 1965 mod and perhaps not so good than a pro pilot like you
i was very on the limit with the reg racing and was very difficult to retain the group behind
with the brabham dw it was more easy for me , i think you will were not so angry after me
on the lap 30 , i think and it is perhaps normal but risky, you take the brakes twenty meters before the limit point and braking in the middle
very confuse but very surprise with this it was impossible to take another line
and excuse me but we are in race and at the moment i was very angry after you you make that so....
sorry for you but you made a good race after

so ....

you will have a another race to fight with me i hope, to put me out , but i promise you, i will not take the brake before the limit
i dont think it s a goog idea ... but ok i m a bad duck

good evening jukka hope be better after

nb: lap 2....cut

Well PITA KIA, when a car brakes so late from so far back (behind another car) that you are already halfway into the turn what do you do then other than stick your head between you legs and kiss your ass goodbye?  Question Question Question :smil20: :smil20: :smil20:

But I'll have one of our porters come pick that up straight away and have it buried with the sponge they cleaned up the inside of my car with.
